How to create a new Adsense Account

Are you a blogger? Do you love what you do? Do you want to earn money doing what you love?
If yes, then this is for you.
Google AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience. These advertisements are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google. They can generate revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis. Google beta-tested a cost-per-action service, but discontinued it in October 2008  in favour of a Double-click offering (also owned by Google). In the first quarter of 2014, Google earned US $3.4 billion ($13.6 billion annualized), or 22% of total revenue, through Google AdSense. AdSense is a participant in the AdChoices program, so AdSense ads typically include the triangle-shaped AdChoices icon.This program also operates on HTTP cookies. Over 14 million websites are using AdSense.
 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.
There are a couple 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.
Create AdSense Gmail account

Note: If you have a custom domain name & you are using Google Apps for your domain email address, I strongly suggest you use that to sign up for your AdSense account. When you use domain specific email addresses (, 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://”.

AdSense contact information:

  This is the most important part.
So many people make a couple of mistakes at this part. 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!

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.
Submit Adsense Tax Information
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.

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.
Verification of address
Adsense Pin
You will start receiving payment once your AdSense account reaches the $100 threshold.

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