The easiest way to apply for an Adsense account
Maybe you haven't tried applying one yet, or you were rejected the first time, or maybe you've tried a few times and so far it's been without luck.
Here I will tell you different two ways for you to apply to get an Adsense account.
Method 1 requires patience.
Method 2 is surprising a lot quicker.
Google have changed the rules! They now want people to have a track record of being a good publisher. Probably long overdue. But if you try to get rejected, you'll likely get an email saying that you're better off having 6 months behind you. And my suggestion: make sure your hubs (or articles, depending where you're publishing) are top notch!
You don't need a website. You don't even need content. Yet.
If you haven't created an Adsense account before, and apply through HubPages, then Google will approve your account before you even need to write or publish any content.
That's right, no need to create content before applying to Google Adsense when you're applying through HubPages.

Sign up for Hubpages here.
After you've registered a Hubpages Author account (and followed the updated instructions above and to the left) go to Affiliate Settings (it's in your My Account page, under Affiliate Settings).
On the "Affiliate Settings" page you'll see next to where it says "Adsense" a link to "Sign Up".
It will then ask "Do you already have a Google AdSense account?". If you say yes, it'll ask for your Publisher ID and then in a few simple steps you will have linked and activated your Adsense Publisher ID to your Hubpage account. However you're here to start an account, so select No,
Tick the box for "I have read and understand Google's terms of service"
And click the button "Signup for AdSense" and away you go!
After registering for your Hubpages account and your Adsense Publisher ID I recommend you read these articles: Adsense Beginners Guide and Click Fraud.
Aside from the Google's AdSense Program Policies and the Terms and Conditions they're probably two of the most informative articles you need to read and understand before you embark on your Adsense Adventure.
