Google AdSense, that's developed by Paul Buchheit and was released back in 2003, is an advertising program that helps publishers monetize their online content. This includes texts, images, videos, or anything interactive for the targeted audience. It is one of the most popular advertising programs on the Internet.
Publishers that publish good content on Google may be paid up to over $10 billion.
If you're interested in learning more about Google AdSense, then this article will tell you what you need to know.
How To Use It?
There are some requirements and things that you need to know before setting your AdSense up.
You need to be at least 18 years old. If not, have a guardian help you.
Your ads need to at least reach $100.
The payments are received the month after.
Just like any other program or application, the first thing you should do is setting up an account. One of the two things you need before creating an AdSense account is:
· Google Account. If you don't have a Google Account, you need to create one.
The second thing that is needed is:
· Content of your own that you made from scratch. (Blog, site, anything original that you own)
Step 1: Go to Google AdSense and click "Get Started"
Step 2: You will be sent to the sign-up page. Here you will need to fill in all the required information that is listed.
Step 3: Entering the URL
When entering the URLs of the ads that you want to show, make sure it is yours or Google's partner sites (e.g., Blogger).
If you want to enter your YouTube URL, sign-in into your YouTube account and go to https://studio.youtube.com/channel/UC/monetization
Step 4: After inserting your email address, you are required to choose between the two options that are listed out from Google AdSense. It is highly recommended for first-time users to choose ‘Yes’ so AdSense could help you more.
Step 5: Click on the “Save and Continue” button.
Step 6: It is quite straightforward from here as you just need to sign in back to your Google Account, select your country and accept the Terms & Conditions from AdSense.
Step 7: Once you have clicked on Create Account, you know have AdSense Account.
In part B, we will show you how to activate your AdSense Account.
Step 1:Filling in Payment Address
To get paid, you must fill in your payment address correctly. Make sure when filling in your name, it’s your full name and an accurate address. Inserting correct information will avoid problems in the future.
Step 2: Verifying Your Phone Number
Not all countries are required to put a phone verification. But if you're living in a country that does need it you can use the phone number that is already verified for your Google and skip the rest of the process.
On the other hand, if you don't, you can fill in your phone number and choose whether you'd like a text message or voice call.
Step 3: Connecting Your Site
This is the last step to activate your AdSense.
All that's needed is to copy your AdSense code and paste it into the HTML of your site. Paste it between the <head> and </head> tags.
Tick on the box that says, “I've pasted the code into my site” and click the “Done” button below.
It usually would take two days or less for your AdSense to be activated. Once it is activated, you will receive an email from Google.
You are now complete with AdSense.
