Creating an AdSense account

How to enter your URL when you create an AdSense account

When you sign up for AdSense, we ask you to tell us the URL of the site that you want to show ads on. To successfully create your AdSense account, the URL that you provide:

  • must be a site that you own
  • must not be a page or directory
  • can't contain any parameters

For example, let's say that you're the domain owner of example.com and that’s the site that you want to monetise with AdSense. In the 'URL of your site' field, you'd enter example.com.

The number of accounts that can use the same domain to sign up for AdSense is limited. If there are already ads from a different AdSense account being served on your sign-up domain, you'll need to use a different domain to sign up for your new AdSense account.

Examples of valid and invalid URLs

Valid URLs Invalid URLs
