The easiest way to apply for an Adsense account

Updated on December 5, 2016

Two Methods

I gather that you're here because you know what Adsense is, but as yet you don't have 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.

Method 1

You register a blogspot account at is owned by Google, for whatever that's worth. is where you register the account, is where it is hosted.

I suggest that you choose a good name, something that is a strong keyword for the topic that you're going to blog about. Choose a topic that you're familiar with, and that interests you.

Now make a post every couple of days. Make them informative. Bonus points if the content is original. Do this for about 8 blog entries, then apply for an Adsense account. Make sure you post a couple more entries while you're awaiting approval (this could take anywhere from 1 to 4 days, speaking from personal experience and what I've seen of others).

Once you have your approval, you can add the Adsense code to your blogspot blog as well as your other sites (it's at your discretion, but make sure your other sites fall within what is acceptable in the Adsense ToS.

Don't abandon your Blogspot account too soon. Maybe blog in it once a week. If the content is original then you could start getting some good Search Engine rankings for your pages. And it could get you a little traffic. Which you can then send to your other sites.


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!

Method 2

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.

Read the Hubpages FAQ here.

Sign up for Hubpages here.

What Next?

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!

What Now?

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.

      I have applied for adsense and I was approved for about 1-6 hrs. Then I got the code and pasted it on my friends personal blog. After days when I logged on to my account, it was disapproved. Maybe adsense doesn't like personal blogs? And one more thing when I got approved there's a notification that my application is not yet fully approved. Adsense is really strict nowadays.

      Nice post.

      Adsense approval from blog is not available in all countries.It is better to apply by google knol or hubpages.

      I did mine just a month ago with only a couple of hubs and was pleasantly surprised to have been immediately approved, less than 24hrs. I, too, thought that I had to wait and didn't expect it to be so easy, which made me wonder about this particular hub.

      They may have changed the rules again. Regardless, I will just have to be thankful I lucked out. :D

      Paste, is your content original? If not, then don't bother applying for Adsense.

      You can get Adsense revenue from wherever you use your Adsense Publisher ID. But Simon, I can't see how earnings somewhere else would be attributed to HubPages.

      Dark side this hub may be helpful for everyone other than those who live in Asian countries, I have a about 25 Hubs, a blog and yet being refused an Adsense account. The six months or less waiting period still holds I guess, thanks for the information though!! :)

      Thanks so much for this article. Although I am very well versed in computer use, I am new to the AdSense & Amazon programs, but your article has confirmed my original intent. Write articles that are interesting or moving to me and share with others & eventually the money will come....or's out of my hands now, but I do agree that there is an awful lot of talk about traffic,instead of allowing Hubpages to do the work for you after you sign up & just concentrate on writing.

      Wait six months, and the one hub you have is more of a blog post, not a content rich article.

      @gurgel1, if the majority of your articles contain only images and no writing (and I see that all your Women's Apparel articles are like that) then there's a good chance of rejection.

      @twinkle88, give the new policy change that ebay is introducing (today in fact) I doubt that they want to see any hubpages as an example of your work. See here for more details:

      I have a question for darkside or anyone who can answer this.

      Does ebay accept us into their affiliate program, if we show them quality hub pages.


    • twinkle88 profile image

      twinkle88 8 years ago

      Wow, that really amazing. I never thought that Google will approve us if we have hub pages account.

      Kudos to Hubpages.

      bharga, I suggest you wait a little longer.

      Also, the Google Search has nothing to do with Adsense. If you want to make a mark on the Search Engines you'll do best by writing and publishing original and unique content.

      Which may also speed up the approval process. If per chance your blog consists entirely of scraped content, it may result in an Adsense account denial.

      Well we do need to make something good before just applying! Like when adsense was new it was accepting blogger blogs with ease! But now there are several standards and quality we need to maintain! And obviously we just cant earn free ;)

      B, it's been a while since I've checked into this hub. And Google have changed the rules. People are getting rejections, even with a few articles. And being told to have more material AND be active for at least 6 months. And that's not just here at HubPages, that's on blogger and other sites.

      And then on the odd occasion there have been people who have been accepted with little or no content.

      So I'd err on the side of caution, and build up some reputation first and have some quality articles behind you.

      I'll have to revise this hub to reflect the new direction.

      are you positive that you don't have to have any content to be approved by google adsense? Absoluetly nothing?

      good post by the way.
