    Why users from China and India have to wait half a year before they configure their Google Adsense?

    Why users from China and India have to wait half a year before they configure their Google Adsense programme?

    This applies on almost every Asian.

    The main reason is that the reported-scam-ratio was a bit higher in these countries. Therefore, to ensure the legitimacy, you have to build up your reputation for at least 6 months, before you become eligible to apply for the Google Adsense program.

    Is the requirement simply time? I thought Google was all about quality. This saddens me to have a double standard based upon time not quality.

    Do the earnings accumulate and then paid out?

    I see a great deal of unfairness in this "timeframe" requirement.

    This rule is not specific to Asia.  Google does apply the rule that accounts for Google AdSense accounts need to be linked to HubPages  accounts which have been active for more than six months in the US too.

    The reason is that there were a lot of fraudulent clicks in the early days of CPC advertising. Google now monitor the traffic for the six month period to assess traffic volumes and then more easily detect fraud.

    Google is obliged to protect the interest of advertisers and prevent fraud. Do not blame Google blame those who stole from the advertising businesses in the early days of the internet .

    It is a requirement all over the world. But I think it came into effect from the recession of global economy

    Some people here are saying everyone has to wait 6 months. I'm in the US, but I got my adsense account activated the first week I was here, and I have not even been here six months yet. I haven't had a payout yet, haven't made much money, but the account is active.
