How to Create an Adsense Account (Beginners Guide)

Are you ready to join Google Adsense?

To create an Adsense account, you need two things mainly. 

  1. A Google Account
  2. A website or blog with original content

I have seen most of the newbie bloggers fail to get approved by Adsense. Because Google is very serious about their Ad network. They strictly follow their requirements, rules and regulations. 

This is why I want you to check the points below before applying for the Adsense program. Although these are not mandatory tasks and there is no guarantee that you will gain approval no matter what happens.

Well, I believe these points may improve your chances of getting accepted by the Adsense team.

Here you go.

  1. Wait at least 3 months after publishing your website. Google loves websites that are active for a long time. Do not apply immediately.
  2. Publish at least 20 to 30 articles that are unique and valuable to readers. Do not copy paste text from anywhere. 
  3. There are no guidelines to maintain the minimum traffic your website should have. But the more is always better.

This method is for those who are applying adsense for the first time. If you already have an adsense account, you can skip to the CONNECT WEBSITE WITH EXISTING ADSENSE ACCOUNT section.

For first timers, click here to navigate to the Google Adsense Sign Up page. On this page, you have to fill out a form with some basic information. 

Google Adsense sign up page

The form is quite straight-forward. As you can see from the above screenshot, you need to mention your website URL first.

In the next field, you have to mention your Google Account email address and choose whether you want to receive customized help and performance reports from the Adsense team or not. 

You may receive a couple of emails from the adsense team. Learn more about the types of emails Adsense will send to you.

Once you have filled out all these details, simply click on the SAVE AND CONTINUE button for the next step.

Country selection and terms acceptation

In this step, you need to select your country and accept Adsense Terms and Conditions. 

We all know that Google is a global company, but there are some country restrictions on who can not join this program. The Adsense Help team officially announced the list of those countries. You can find them here. You can also read their Terms and Conditions (if required).

Once you have filled in all the details, simply click on the CREATE ACCOUNT button to move to the next step.

Google Adsense payment profile

And here comes the most important part. 

Here you have to mention your payment details. If you made any mistake here, you will find it difficult to change anything (including India). 

  • Most Important Part: Write your full name the same as you have used for your Bank. Adsense will send a cheque with that name.
  • Mention Account type: Individual or Company.
  • Write the postal address where you want to receive the cheques.

Once all the details are filled in, click on the SUBMIT button. 

Connect website with Google Adsense

You have completed the form fill up process. Now is the time to connect your website with an Adsense account.

After clicking on the SUBMIT button, you have been directed to a new page with some HTML codes. In this step, you have to place these codes into your website theme.

Wordpress theme editor

 If you are using WordPress, just login to your admin panel and find THEME EDITOR under APPEARANCE (left dashboard). On this page you will see HEADER.PHP on the right panel. Just open it by clicking on it and find the <head> tag in HTML code. 

Refer to the above screenshot and paste the code copied from Google Adsense application form. Click on UPDATE button and wait till it updates successfully.

Once you have done this job, just click on I’VE PASTED THE CODE INTO MY SITE check box in the Adsense page and then click on the DONE button.

Google Adsense list of sites

If you already have an Adsense account, you don’t need to create another one. You can add a new website with an existing Adsense account.

Simply log in to your Adsense account and click on SITES on the left dashboard. On this page, you can find a list of websites connected with this adsense account.

To add a new website, click on the ADD SITE button and mention the URL as shared screenshot below.

At this level, Adsense will share some HTML code to connect your website to an Adsense account. Just copy the HTML stuff and paste it after the <head> tag in your website theme.

Once it is done, click on the SUBMIT button to complete this process.

Adsense confirmation

Normally it takes 4 to 7 days to get approval from Google Adsense. But it can be lengthy upto 2 weeks. Once you will get approval, you will be notified via mail like the above screenshot.
