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 website / 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.
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.
This form is straight-forward. You simply need to enter your website address and select the content language. For the website URL use your website url, and make sure to add it without “http://”.
AdSense contact information:
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.
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!
Signing up with your email account:
You can use your current email address to sign up, or you can create a new gmail ID just for AdSense.
Once you have signed up for AdSense, Copy AdSense code and you need to add it in your website. 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 on your mail id.
All of this takes approximately 1-2 months depending upon your geographical location.
