Access to Google Adsense program
AdSense is Google’s advertising network. It was founded in 2003 when Google was looking for a way to generate more money.
Google Adsense is currently the world’s largest advertising network on the web, we find it almost everywhere. Here are some places where you can see ads from Google Adsense:
- sites with information content;
- YouTube videos;
- Gmail service;
- the Google search engine .
You may find that Google utilizes the authority on its own platforms to generate more money using its own services. therefore, We find Google Adsense within the SERP (search engine results page), Gmail service, or in YouTube videos.
What exactly interests us is the capability to broadcast Adsense advertisements on a personal website. Which is very simple, you first have to register your site in the Adsense program and, if accepted, you’ll be able to broadcast Adsense . First, you will need a Google account. Once logged in, you can propose your site for publishing.
Register your site to Google Adsense
In order to register your website with Google Adsense, you need first to make sure it’s online and running . To do this, just type the URL of your site in the web browser. If your site is correctly displayed, it’s ready to be proposed to Google. Indeed, sites under development or without a regular domain name can’t be accepted in Google Adsense; this is one of the very important rules of Google Adsense.
My site is hosted on a free company, with also a free domain name. Can I still be accepted on Google Adsense?
If you want to broadcast Adsense ads on your site, is that you intend to make an income. However, you should know that Adsense pays publishers by click. So we need a maximum of visitors to generate highest possible clicks and therefore generate much more earnings. In case your site is on a free hosting, or has no unique domain name, which is certainly a personal blog, or a site with very low traffic. Adding Adsense advertisements then would be a waste of time unless you want to earn a dime every month. You should be working on your energy: your content. Once your site is well known, consider monetizing your pages with Adsense.
To get started, you must visit the homepage of the Adsense program. If you are using an utility such as Adblock or other advertisements blocking module, you may have display issues. consider adding an exception in your anti-ad filters for Google Adsense, or simply disable it completely.
This page summarizes the three requirements for inclusion on Adsense:
- an active Google account;
- monetizing content: in our case, a website;
- a postal mailing address.
Do not forget that Adsense is not exclusively dedicated to websites. We can also find it on YouTube videos or even in mobile applications. It’s quite large,but we will focus here on the case of a website.
Why google adsense ask me for a mailing address?
In order to pay you! Specifically, every time a visitor clicks a banner ad on your site, you earn money. Once your earnings accomplish the specific payout, Google will send you a check by post, that you can cash at your bank. you must provide a correct mailing address, to make sure that your check will be delivered to you.
However we’re not there yet. You will first have to submit your site to Google Adsense. Click the “Yes, proceed to a Google Account sign in” and log in. You are now at the phase number 2 of your website registration. It’s time to propose your web site to Google. Now Google will remind you the main rules and policies of Adsense program.
Above, we have a form with two fields to fill:
- your website URL .
- the main language on your site.
After that, click the “Continue” button to get into the third and final step of listing your website to Google Adsense. For this last step, you will have a little more to accomplish. they will request you include your full name, address and telephone number. Keep in mind that this information will be used by Google to send your payments, so provide a valid data. When you are ready, click the “Send my request” button to submit the demand to Google Adsense.
The validation stage of your site
Once your request submitted, Google Adsense will review the information you have sent. Your demand may be either accepted or declined. Here are the most frequent reasons for rejection:
- not accessible website;
- wrong personal information;
- User previously banned .
As soon as Google examined your site, you will receive an email with reply regarding your request. Make sure to check your inbox from time to time, as well as your spam. In case your demand had been declined, do not panic, rejection is not final. If it was caused due to low quality content or poor design, you can always try again later once you’ve done a good job on your site . Normally, Google Adsense welcomes almost all websites, as long as they are properly built. Even small blogs with very few visits are generally accepted, because they have little chance of generating income for the authority.
If you are the owner of an old Google Adsense account which was banned in the past, Google will not agree to create a new one, and will never accept either to reactivate the old. Adsense banishments are, in fact, registered forever. So there is certainly very little chance to access the program again. However, if you have been admitted, which is sure to happen if you have followed the advices given in this article, then you will have now access to Google Adsense interface.
the validation phase of a website for the Google Adsense program is not verified by robots. These are indeed real people, employed by Google, who are responsible to carefully review the proposed websites one by one. So you have no chance if you are stating false information on your website.
You should also know that the team of Google Adsense, which composed only by humans, do not work on weekends! If you have submitted your site on a Friday night, do not expect to receive a response until Monday the following week!

Your first Ads on Google Adsense
Go to the creation of a new advertising interface. Google Adsense requests for the name of the publicity you would like to create. You can write anything you want, this name will be used only to quickly and easily identify an advertisement. Google Adsense after that asks you which structure you want for your advertising. The service recommends four sizes, which are generally known to be the most efficient:
- Medium rectangle : 300×250
- Large Rectangle : 336×280
- Leaderboard : 728×90
- Skyscraper :160×600
Google Adsense then asks you the type of advertising you want to view.
