Setting up your Google AdSense account – Part 1 (Enrolment form)
The following paragraphs summarize the work of adsense experts who are completely familiar with all the aspects of adsense. Heed their advice to avoid any adsense surprises.
So, you have decided to go ahead and use Google AdSense for generating revenue from your website. Google AdSense doesn’t need you to sell any products or services. With Google AdSense, you are just selling advertising space on your website.
And the best part is that Google doesn’t discriminate between websites; so, any website owner can enroll with Google AdSense program (as long as it adheres to the Google AdSense program policies).
Moreover, setting up a Google AdSense account is so easy that you can literally start generating revenue within 15 minutes.
Is everything making sense so far? If not, I'm sure that with just a little more reading, all the facts will fall into place.
For enrolling to the Google AdSense program, go to https://www.google.com/AdSense and click on the ‘Click here to Apply’ button. You will be presented with an enrolment form where you need to fill-in some details like your website information (URL and website language), the Google AdSense products that you wish to use (i.e. AdSense for Content or AdSense for Search), your contact information, your email address and your preferences.
You will also need to select an account type (business/individual) for your AdSense Account and agree to the various policies, terms and conditions of Google AdSense program.
The account type will not affect your revenues in any way; it is there just to determine if the payment is to be made in the name of a company or an individual.
The email address and the password that you provide during the enrolment process will be required by you for logging into your account later on. Note that you will be referred to as publisher by the Google AdSense program; so when you return back to the Google AdSense website, you will be asked to enter your login details as an ‘Existing Publisher’.
That’s it. You can now submit your application form for Google to evaluate and get back to you.
So now you know a little bit about adsense. Even if you don't know everything, you've done something worthwhile: you've expanded your knowledge.
