Sign-up and activation

Sign up for AdSense

Follow these steps to get your AdSense account up and running:

1. Create an AdSense account

To succeed with AdSense, check that your site has interesting and original content that draws visitors to see your ads. Learn how to create an AdSense account.

Sign up for AdSense

Note: If you use Blogger or YouTube (or another AdSense partner), you should sign up for AdSense via your account there as these products follow a different process. For more information, see Advertise on your Blogger blog or Sign up for AdSense via YouTube.

2. Activate your AdSense account

To activate your AdSense account complete the following tasks:

3. Wait for your site to be reviewed

We review your entire site to check it complies with the AdSense Program policies. When we're done, we send you an email with details on your activation status. This usually takes a few days, but in some cases can take up to 2 weeks. Learn more about the waiting time for a fully activated AdSense account.

4. Start showing ads

When your AdSense account is fully activated, you're ready to start showing ads. Learn how to set up ads on your site.

Tip: To help you run a successful AdSense account, we recommend Your guide to AdSense.

If we can't activate your AdSense account

In some situations, we can't activate your AdSense account. Depending on the reason, you might be able to resume the activation process. For more information, see: What to do if AdSense can't activate your account.
