How to register Google Adsense? You just need 3 things to sign up for Google AdSense:
A Google Adsense Account
If you’re using Gmail or any other Google service, you already have one. If not, just click to sign up and Google will help you create your new account. It gets you into AdSense and everything Google.
Content Created From Scratch
This can include your website, blog or other original content that complies with Google programme policies. This is where ads will be displayed so Google want to make sure that it’s a nice place for everyone.
Phone Number and Postal Address
As part of Google effort to protect publisher accounts, it asks that you provide a valid phone number when you activate your AdSense account. Google use phone number verification to make sure that your information is accurate and up to date. Your phone number and the postal address associated with your bank account so that you can get paid. It’s a must. Postcode and all.

Follow these steps to get your AdSense account up and running:
Create an AdSense account
To succeed with AdSense, check that your site has interesting and original content that draws visitors to see your ads.
Activate your AdSense account
For some publishers the activation process can be as quick as a day, and for others it can take several weeks. Note that some parts of the process require actions on your end, and Google can only activate your account after you complete them. Google has found that in most cases when a publisher waits a long time to be activated, it’s because they haven’t placed the code on a page that gets regular views.
It’s important that you do these tasks, otherwise Google won’t be able to complete the activation process. To activate your AdSense account complete the following tasks:
- Connect your site to AdSense
- Enter your payment address details
- Verify your phone number
Note: If you use Blogger or YouTube (or another AdSense partner), you should sign up for AdSense via your account there as these products follow a different process.
Important points to help get your account activated:
- Copy the code exactly as it appears on your AdSense homepage.
- Place the code on the URL that you provided when you created your AdSense account.
- Make sure that you place the code on a page that has content and receives regular visitors.
What happens next?
Google reviews your entire website to check that it complies with the AdSense programme policies. When it is done, Google sends you an email with details on your activation status. This process usually takes less than a day but can take longer.
If your account isn’t activated at this stage, you’ll receive an email explaining why and what you can do.
When your AdSense account is fully activated, you’re ready to start showing ads.
If Google can’t activate your AdSense account
In some situations, Google can’t activate your AdSense account. Depending on the reason, you might be able to resume the activation process.
Your AdSense account can’t be activated because your site doesn’t follow the AdSense programme policies
While reviewing your account, Google notices that your site doesn’t follow the programme policies. If you’re able to address the issues on your site, then you may resume the activation process. Alternatively, you can choose to use a different site for AdSense and resume the activation process with that website instead.
What to do if AdSense can’t activate your account
To find out why your AdSense account can’t be activated, either sign in to AdSense or read the email that Google sent you. The main reasons why Google can’t activate an account are:
There’s a problem with your site’s content
Review the AdSense Programme policies and prohibited content policies to make sure that your site is in compliance. Bear in mind that Google may review all pages of your site, not just the sign-up URL where you placed the code. After you’ve adjusted your content, sign in to AdSense and confirm that you’ve resolved the issues on your site. Google will then proceed with activating your AdSense account.
You have two AdSense accounts
AdSense policies only allow one account per publisher. After you’ve closed the other account, sign in to AdSense and confirm that it’s closed. Google will then proceed with activating your AdSense account.
Note: Publishers whose accounts have been terminated for invalid traffic or policy violations will not be allowed to open a new AdSense account as per the AdSense Terms and Conditions.
How to address issues with your site’s content
Here’s a list of common content issues and some steps that you can take to fix them.
Your site was found to have too little text, and/or your site was deemed to be “under construction”. Sites should have sufficient high-quality content to provide meaningful user experiences and allow us to serve relevant ads to users.
- Make sure that your pages have sufficient text – sites that contain mostly images, videos or Flash animations may not be approved.
- Your content should contain complete sentences and paragraphs, not only headlines.
- Make sure that your site is fully built and launched – don’t sign up while your site’s still under construction or only consists of a site template.
- When connecting your site to AdSense, place the ad code on a live page of your site. Test pages that are empty except for the code won’t be approved.
Content quality issues
Your site has content quality issues. Google believes that there isn’t enough original, rich content that would be of value to users. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site.
- Don’t place the ad code on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
- Your site shouldn’t participate in affiliate programmes without adding sufficient value to users. Affiliate programme content should form only a minor part of the content of your site if the content adds no additional features.
- Review the Webmaster Guidelines for more help on how to provide a positive experience for your users.
Content policy violations
Your site doesn’t comply with AdSense policies.
- Review Google Programme policies and content policies for more information.
Site navigation issues
During Google review of your site, Google found your site difficult to navigate. Your site should provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organisation.
- Provide a clear navigation system for your visitors so that they can click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking. Potential navigation issues include: redirects, pages behind a login or restricted access, broken links, excessive pop-ups, diallers and pages under construction or not yet launched.
- Review the Programme policies for more information.
Issues with your traffic sources
Your site has issues with its traffic sources. Google ads cannot be placed on pages receiving traffic from certain sources. For example, publishers may not participate in paid-to-click programmes, send unwanted emails or display ads as the result of the action of any software application.
- Make sure that your pages comply with Google’s Landing page quality guidelines.
- Review the Programme policies and Webmaster Guidelines for more information on how to stay compliant.
The majority of your site’s content is in a language that AdSense doesn’t currently support. See the list of languages that AdSense supports.
- Consider translating your site into a supported language and resubmitting your application with your revised site.
- If you have another site in one of Google supported languages, you may resubmit your application with that site instead.
