How to enter the URL of your site when you create an AdSense account
When you sign up for AdSense we ask you to tell us the URL of your site. To successfully create your AdSense account, the URL that you provide:
- must be a site that you own
- must not have a path (e.g., example.com/path) or subdomain (e.g., subdomain.example.com)
- must not contain any parameters (e.g., example.com/?q=target)
For example, let's say you're the owner of example.com. On the AdSense sign-up page, you'd enter example.com in the "URL of your site" field.
Blogger and YouTube URLs
If you enter the URL of your Blogger blog (e.g., example.blogspot.com) or YouTube channel (e.g., youtube.com/channel/example) when you sign up, we'll direct you to continue in your Blogger or YouTube account. These products follow a different account creation process. For more information, see Advertise on your Blogger blog or Set up an AdSense account for payments.
