Posted on Mar 20, 2009 in AdsenseAdvertisingVideo Channel
Within this post we will teach you how to sign up for Google AdSense and talk about any obstacles you might encounter during the process of signing up. This post is part of our complete AdSense guide.Before signing upBefore applying you need to be familiar with the TOS. There isn’t really a lot you need to know but we would like to point your attention to the following points:
  • No Warez sites.
  • No pornographic sites
  • No Gambling sites
  • No hate sites (terrorist sites won’t get approved)
  • No sites with stolen content
If your website is about any of the above points then you can be sure that you won’t get accepted. Gambling sites aren’t allowed because of American law. The only state where gambling is allowed is Nevada and thus Google in generally disallowed gambling/casino sites. Many people have forums and forum members tend to link to warez sites. Make sure there are no warez in your forum before starting the process of applicating. Also make sure that your forum members didn’t  and won’t post any adult material or else you won’t get approved as well.Google is very strict with the TOS so if you don’t want to get banned from AdSense make sure to follow the rules.Signing up is easyOpen Google AdSense and click on the “Sign up now” button. Alternatively you could go to the sign up page directly. Fill in your data accurately. You will need to open a new Google Account during the process if you don’t already own one. The Google account is of course completely free for you. Once you finished filling out tons of forms you need to wait around 48 hours to get approved.After signing upSigning up is in fact quick but getting your account disabled is even faster. Once you are publishing ads make sure you don’t:
  • Click on your own ads. You will get banned.
  • Recruit your friends to click your ads, it will just smart price you.
  • Place images next to your ads (no arrows or anything).
  • Place your ads on TOS violating pages (see above).
  • Start publishing duplicated or even pirated content.
What I noticed is that many people start writing about additional niches once they got their first clicks. Stick to your niche. If you want to succeed online it’s very important to have a niche site. Niche sites are the sites that guarantee you a high CPC.
