How Do I Get Google AdSense Account without a Website?

Updated on October 1, 2018
Getting Google AdSense Account

So; you have heard that Google AdSense is the highest paying Pay Per Click program; and you need an AdSense account? Not before you show them your content site that must have been online for half a year; especially if you are residing in Asia and Africa. This tells outright that Adsense is not a get-rich-quick scheme: Rather; a simple way for serious publishers to get income by displaying targeted advertisements next to their online content.

My continent and country of residence made it a painful AdSense experience: However, less costly and faster than starting a high-traffic niche site; which has to be in existence online for not less than six months to get your AdSense account approved.

According to Google AdSense rules; the country of residence is critical in determining whether you can qualify to make money through their revenue sharing platform, by placing relevant ads next to your content.

The residents of US, Australia, Europe and UK may get an Adsense account approval within six weeks; depending on the content quality and quantity. However, if you reside outside the mentioned countries; for example countries in Africa and Asia, the AdSense special time-rule of six months applies regardless of the content quality and quantity already published online.

However; the AdSense special time-rule sometimes varies, and some serious authors as deemed by AdSense team have managed to get their account approved before six months elapse; but only through authoritative content publishing or blogging sites such as HubPages.

I have two reasons why I am not blaming the Google AdSense team for this strict scrutinization that they carry before approving AdSense accounts:

Firstly; like any other business out there would invest in protecting their esteemed customer; Google is protecting advertisers from the ever growing internet scams by ensuring that only competent and serious publisher with greate potential get AdSense account.

Secondly; if the advertisers realize that their hard earned money is being wasted on irrelevant and thin contents; they will back off and cosequently; the internet economy will sink deeper, which no internet entreprenure is wishing for at the momemt when online business is at its peek.

Of course; there are a number of illegal tricks, which several individuals have used to acquire an AdSense account like purchasing an existing account; or using any other dubious means to challenge the system and get faster AdSense approval regardless of the restrictions.

The truth is; if you do these work-around tricks and get an account, you may not own it long enough to receive your first AdSense payment: How do they know that one has used dubious means to get an AdSense account? As part of the approval process; the AdSense team sends a unique PIN number through snail mail, which indicates the physical address of the recipient.

If they locate and establish that the physical address belongs to a restricted country; they automatically close the associated account and sometimes permanently ban the person from participating in AdSense earning program.

So What? well said; still haven't figured out the AdSense easy way out yet!

Yes, I know that is the next question: The easy and most affordable way to get an AdSense account; is to find an authoritative publishing platform that incorporates AdSense earning Program and then get publishing quality and original content there!

To the individuals living outside the US, UK, Australia etc etc; it is much easier this way than to start and run your own website; which might take ages to achieve the amount of traffic and search engine ranking that is required to be able to get approved for the Google AdSense.

Besides; if you find and sign up with publishing and revenue sharing sites that are porpular in the search engines, your chances of getting legally approved for the AdSense earning program before the six months period requirement may increase like I have witnessed with some few individuals who are publishing on HubPages.

After publishing a sufficient amount of content ranging between 20 and 25 quality articles; you can then apply for the AdSense account and start sharing income with the publishing platforms right away when approve for hosted AdSense account.

To add on top; you can also start your own hosted niche website and set up the approved AdSense account; but this will only work after you upgrade your hosted Adsense account into a normal AdSense account (non hosted); so that you can earn passive income from your own site at the same time.

The bitter truth is that the process of upgrading hosted AdSense account into a normal AdSense account is hectic; though so rewarding and worth your time: However, you can still make even more money by joining other more AdSense hosted partner sites that will be automatically approved for AdSense even with very few content without any AdSense time rule.

Free Publishing Sites to Get Your AdSense Account without a Website


Like you would expect; HubPages is topping my list, but with a reason: Firstly; you can write literally about any topic that pleases you on HubPages, you only need your email address to get starteg with this amazing site.

Secodly; HubPages is one of the greatest publishing and revenue sharing sites that have been consistent in featuring only high quality content. In fact; this is the only site that has stood firm the test of cruel actions of the search engine algorithms.

The site enjoys an impressive ranking in the search engine results page of the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing; primarily because of the quality of the content they publish through a competent community of skilled writers.

All the hubs (articles) are passed through the HubPages quality assessment process before they are published in order to ensure that only quality and original contents are published.

For the individuals living in the restricted countries; it is advisable to write and publish at least 20 hubs before applying for the Google AdSense program. On the other hand; if you're living within the non-restricted countries; you can publish at least 10 hubs before apply for AdSense so that you can be sure of the approval.

After your AdSense account is approved; you will be able to earn an impressive income when ads shown next to your content get clicks. Besides; you can also make money on HubPages without Google AdSense account through other affiliate programs such as Amazon and eBay as you wait for your AdSense account approval through HubPages.

Blogger is another free weblog publishing platform owned by Google itself. Similar to Hubpages; Blogger displays relevant ads next to your content so that their publishers can earn from clicks their content generates.

Google AdSense rules are the same across all the publishing platforms: You need to publish high quality and sufficient contents that are original before daring to apply for the AdSense revenue sharing platform. You can visit Blogger Help Center for more information on how to get started.

Of course; there are a number of free publishing platform such as Xomba, Wizzley, and Infobarrel that one can join and publish articles about almost every topic and get an AdSense account: However, I din't intend to confuse my readers with a long list of the same thing. Feel free to add other Google AdSense partner free-publishing-platforms in the comment box: I hope this helps beginners to get AdSense approval!

      Not really a requirement that you have 20 articles Kevin, above ten articles is okay for adsense application but it mainly depends on where you come from and the time (3-6 months) you have taken posting quality articles. If you come from Africa it is 6 months but other continents may vary. I advice you to choose a niche and post quality articles for now and try applying when you have around 15 articles and above 3 months.

      Thanks very mush for the great info. But if I may understand you well, does it mean you can't apply for Adsense untill you have at least 20 articles on Hubpages?

      Teenable, it's ok if you can post frequently on both platforms. However, since you reside in India where strict AdSense time rule applies, you'll have to apply for AdSense when your Hubpages or Blogger account is six months old. Goodluck and thanks for your comment.

      Most probably it's the time rule: If you live outside USA, Australia, Europe, and UK; then you'll have to wait and reapply after 6 months. Goodluck!

      You're very welcome! :)

      The sad truth is that getting accepted for the upgrade request is the hardest :( I have applied twice and I was never accepted, I've checked the policies and they do seem to comply with my site, the only thing here is that my site is not more than 6 months old, it is only 2 months old. I think this is the cause that's making Google reject my site?

      Making ad codes for sites other than the site already connected with Google adsense with your pub ID , such as Hubpages, is not allowed until you upgrade your Google adsense account..

      Hi GF, one AdSense account can be used on multiple sites as long as they comply with AdSense policies: It is just a matter of generating an AdSense code normally through the AdSense account and placing the code on a new page. They'll automatically associate the new sites with the Adsense account. Here is what Google says

      Pardon the newbieness of this question, but is it possible to use the Adsense program we have here on Hubpages over on other sites?

      If so, is this process relatively painless?

      Thanks for a great hub!
