How Do I Sign Up for Google AdSense?

 How Google AdSense Works?

Google AdSense is an ad-serving program run by Google which offers a primarily PPC (Pay Per Click) revenue model, meaning that every time an ad gets clicked, you or HubPages (and Google) make money.

  Sign Up for Google AdSense:

Google AdSense has made it very simple to sign up. We recommend that all Hubbers sign up for Google AdSense by going to My Account > Earnings > Settings and clicking on the "get started" button. If you don't sign up, HubPages can't split impressions with you and you can't be paid for your share of the clicks on your Hubs!
There are two scenarios for signing-up for Google AdSense: you already have a Google AdSense account or you're a new Google AdSense member. Both signup instructions are described below.

Where does the money come from?

The money from clicks on your Hubs come from Advertisers. Advertisers use Google's AdWords program to set up ad campaigns in the hope that people will click through to their product or service.
Advertisers narrow down their target audience by picking keywords. These words are what Google AdSense uses to choose the pages of content that are the right fit for their ad. This is called contextual advertising, and is the other big reason why Google AdSense works so well. Google also takes the geographical location of the surfer into account. That way a dentist in Dallas can have their ads showing only to web surfers in Dallas. It's a lot better than the shotgun approach to online advertising that was around before Google AdSense rode into town.

I already have a Google AdSense Publisher ID:

If you already have a Google AdSense Publisher ID, adding it to HubPages is easy.
  • While signed-in to HubPages, go to My Account > Earnings > Settings
  • Click the "get started" button next to Google AdSense
  • Check the "yes" radio button after the question: "Do you already have a Google AdSense Account?"
  • To verify with Google AdSense that you are the owner of your Google AdSense Publisher ID account you need to enter the following information: your email address (the one you used to access your Google AdSense account), the last five digits of your phone number and/or your postal/zip code.
  • There is no need to enter your actual Google AdSense Publisher ID. Google will know what it is by these three forms of identification.
  • Once you click on "Link My Accounts" and the status is listed as "Active," you will be able to earn from ads on your Hubs automatically (you won't need to touch any code or do anything once you have Google AdSense active on HubPages.) However, you must make sure that you have followed the confirmation instructions that you'll get by email from Google. To make sure that HubPages has access to your Google AdSense account, you can visit your Google AdSense account and check the "Account Access" section under the "Account" tab.


I need to sign up for Google AdSense:

If you don't already have a Google AdSense Publisher ID, you can apply for one after you've published a few quality Hubs. For certain countries your account must also be established for at least 6 months before you will be approved (view all specific eligibility requirements).
Google is selective in who they approve, so to maximize your chance of acceptance, please be sure that your presence on HubPages includes substantial, original content before you apply; quality is more important than quantity. It is also a good idea to have a completed user profile and profile image uploaded. To apply for a Google AdSense account:
  • While signed in to HubPages, go to My Account > Earnings > Settings
  • Click the "get started" button next to Google AdSense
  • Check the "no" radio button after the question: "Do you already have a Google AdSense Account?"
  • You will need to enter an email address (if you already have a Google Account that you use with other Google services, we'd suggest using that).
  • Google will send you an email requesting a bit more information from you to get your Google AdSense account set up. In that email you will be asked to click a link to finish setting up your Google AdSense account.
  • Upon completion, you will be taken to the Affiliate Settings page. Here you can enter your affiliate account codes. Keep in mind that all codes will need to be entered EXCEPT your Google AdSense code. That code will be entered automatically.
