How to Create an AdSense Account (For Newbie Bloggers)

As a blogger, you have surely heard of the AdSense program from Google which is regarded as one of the best contextual advertisement programs available.

In this post, I will demonstrate how you can 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.

If you have some marketing skills, however, you may also want to look into affiliate marketing.

When I started blogging, “AdSense” was a foreign concept to me. When I initially signed up for AdSense, I needed a lot of help from my friends, and I still was not sure I was doing it right.

For beginners who are not familiar with AdSense, it is an advertisement program for publishers started by Google (See Wiki details), 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 of requirements which you must meet before you can apply for AdSense:

  • First, of course, you need to have a website.
  • 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 (admin@domain.com), the chances of getting your AdSense application approved is increased by a factor of 3.

Otherwise, you can use your existing Gmail address.

Website Details:

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, including India.

So ensure your bank account name and payee name are exactly the same.

Next, add your contact information and fill in the other details.

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!

You can use your current email address to sign up, or you can create a new Gmail ID just for AdSense. For fast approval, I would suggest you to use ZohoMail, and create a free domain-specific email address.

In my case, when I tried to sign up using a generic gmail address, I was rejected four times.  However, when I later applied using a domain-specific email address, I got instantAdSense approval.

Once you have signed up for AdSense, you need to add AdSense codes to your blog. The AdSense team will review your application again after you add the codes, and your account will be activated with an Adsense Pin that will be sent to you.

All of this takes approximately  1-2 months depending upon your geographical location.

Once everything is set up, in order to get paid from AdSense you need to complete two further steps:

  • Submit your tax information
  • Enter your pin

You will need to submit a tax form specific to how you are conducting business. For certification of No U.S. activities, and for Indian AdSense publishers, you can fill in this tax information:

AdSense Pin:

You will receive an AdSense Pin by mail once you reach the threshold of $10. You need to add the pin to your AdSense account.

 

You will start receiving payment once your AdSense account reaches the $100 threshold.

I hope with this guide you can successfully create an AdSense account.

Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!|
