Sign-up and activation
Sign up for AdSense
Follow these steps to get your AdSense account up and running:
1. Create an AdSense account
2. Activate your AdSense account
To activate your AdSense account complete the following tasks:
What happens next?
We review your entire site to check that it complies with the AdSense programme policies. When we're done, we send you an email with details on your activation status. This process usually takes less than a day but can take longer. Learn more about the waiting time for a fully activated AdSense account.
When your AdSense account is fully activated, you're ready to start showing ads. Learn how to set up ads on your site.
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. See below for more information.
Your AdSense account can't be activated because your site doesn't follow the AdSense programme policies
While reviewing your account, we notice that your site doesn't follow the programme policies. If you’re able to address the issues on your site, then you may resume the activation process. Alternatively, you can choose to use a different site for AdSense and resume the activation process with that site instead.
Your AdSense account can't be activated because you have two AdSense accounts
While reviewing your account, we notice that you have another AdSense account. In this case, you need to close your other account before resuming the activation process.
For more information, see What to do if AdSense can't activate your account.
