Steps to create an AdSense account:
The team of AdSense has recently implemented new rules to get Adsense account approval and added the following steps:
- Sign up for AdSense
- Add AdSense code to your blog or website
- Wait while your application or account is reviewed and either accepted or rejected
Now the Adsense account approval has become difficult and lengthy. It is because Google wants to maintain the integrity of Adsense.
It is also essential to ensure that your blog or website is abiding by AdSense policies before applying.
Additionally, you need to read the terms and conditions mentioned on the signup page to learn more.
Step-by-Step Guide: how to Create an AdSense Account:
First of all, go to the Signup page for AdSense.
You have the option to create a new Gmail account or you can also use the existing Google account as well.
Note: If you have a custom domain name & you are usingGoogle Apps for your domain email address, we recommend you to use that to sign up for your AdSense account. When you use domain or website specific email addresses like (firstname.lastname@example.org). Then it will give a positive impression and there are maximum chances of getting your AdSense application approved.
Otherwise, you can use your premade Gmail address.
This form is simple and straight-forward. You simply need to enter your blog URL and select the language of your content. For the website URL (greenhatexpert.com) use your blog address, and make sure to add it without “http://”.
Adsense contact information
This is the most important part.
I remember I made mistakes at this part when I first signed up. Hopefully, if you will follow this guide, you will not repeat my mistakes.
The “payee name” is very important. You have to ensure that you use the same name which you have used in your bank account, as AdSense can send you cheques, Western Union or EFT payment under that name.
If you will a mistake in this section, there is a chance that you may not be able to change payee name later. It is a difficult task to change the payee name in several countries including India.
- We are also sharing the list of countries which are not allowed to change their payee name. Here is the list of countrieswhich are not allowed to change the payee name after creating an account for Adsense.
So ensure your bank account name and the person who will receive Adsense payment(payee name) are exactly the same.
Next add your contact information and fill in the other details.
Now Accept adsense policies
Read the AdSense policies carefully and put a checkmark in the box.
Once you have done these steps, then click on “Submit” button, and on the next page you can review your details.
Make sure that all of your details are accurate and up to date!
Sign up with your email account
The blogger can use his current email address to create a Google Adsense account. Additionally, he can also create a new Gmail ID for the sake of Adsense. If you want to get fast approval, we recommend you Zohomail and you can create a free domain specific email address.
When we tried to sign up for a generic gmail address, we got rejected a couple of times. Later we have applied for Adsense using a domain-specific email address. We got Adsense approval quickly.

Once you have created account for AdSense, you need to put your AdSense code to your website. The Google AdSense team will review your application when you will add the code, and your account will be authorised and activated with an Adsense Pin that will be sent to you. You will get adsense pin at your address and Google publish it when you reach the threshold of 10$.
Adsense pin can reach you from one week to 3 months it depends on your geographical location.
Once everything is set up and you want to get paid from AdSense you need to complete two further steps:
- Firstly, Submit your tax information
- Secondly, Enter your pin
You will need to submit a tax form for your business. For certification of No U.S. activities, and for Indian AdSense publishers, you can fill in this tax information:
You will receive your Adsense pin by mail when you reach the threshold that is, 10$. Then add the pin to your Adsense to make it verified.
Google pays you when you reach the threshold of 100$.
