In this post, I will demonstrate how to create an AdSense account for your website.
There are many AdSense alternatives available, but no matter what network you try, you will likely find that Adsense is the best.
For beginners who are not familiar with AdSense, it is an advertisement program for publishers started by Google, wherein contextual ads are placed on your blog and you get paid when someone clicks on these ads.
In this blog post, I present an essential guide for beginners who are not sure how to apply for AdSense.
There are a couple requirements which you must meet before you can apply for AdSense:
1. First, of course, you need to have a website or youtube channel or blog.
2. You also must be above the age of 18, otherwise you will need to apply using the name of a parent or guardian who gives you permission to do so.
Steps to create an AdSense account:
AdSense has recently changed the account approval process to include the following steps:
√. Sign up for AdSense
√. Add AdSense ads to your blog
√. Wait while your account is reviewed and either accepted or rejected
√. Although the new AdSense account approval process is quite lengthy, the process will ultimately help to maintain the quality of AdSense for all users.
It is also important to make sure your blog or website is abiding by AdSense policies before applying.
Also, be sure to read the terms and conditions mentioned on the signup page to learn more.
Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an AdSense Account:
First, go to the Signup page for AdSense.
You will see an option to create a new Google account, or you can choose to use your existing Google account.
Note: If you have a custom domain name & you are using Google Apps for your domain email address, I suggest you use that to sign up for your AdSense account. When you use domain specific email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org), the chances of getting your AdSense application approved is increased by a factor of 3.
Otherwise, you can use your existing gmail address.
This form is straight-forward. You simply need to enter your website address and select the content language. For the website URL use your blog address, and make sure to add it without “http://”.
This is the most important part.
I remember making a couple of mistakes at this part when I first signed up. Hopefully, if you follow this guide, you won’t make the same mistakes.
The “payee name” is very important. Make sure to use the same name under which you have a bank account, as AdSense will be sending you checks or EFT payment under that name.
If you make a mistake here, changing the payee name of your account will be difficult in many countries
Here is the list of countries which are not allowed to change the payee name after signing up.
So ensure your bank account name and payee name are exactly the same.
Next add your contact information and fill in the other details.
Accept AdSense policies:
Read the AdSense policies and put a checkmark in all three boxes.
Once done, click on “Submit”, and on the next page you can review your details.
Make sure that all the details are accurate and up to date!
