Use AdSense with the Google Publisher Plugin

Check your AdSense account information

Google AdSense provides a free, flexible way to earn money from your websites with relevant and engaging ads. To use AdSense with the Google Publisher Plugin, you must have an AdSense account.

If you don’t have an AdSense account: Sign up for AdSense

If you don’t have an AdSense account, you can sign up for one:

  • Click the Sign up for AdSense button on the settings page of the plugin. You'll be taken to the AdSense sign-up form. Complete the form to apply for an account.
Please note:
  • Before applying for AdSense, please read the AdSense program policies and ensure that you comply with them. In particular, your site must have content before you apply for AdSense.
  • It typically takes a few hours to process your application. You'll receive an email when your account has been created.

To complete your AdSense application, you need to show ads on your site. Initially, the ads will be test ads, and these are used to help AdSense make certain that you control the site. Learn how to place ads on your site.

If you already have an AdSense account: Check your publisher information

If you already have an AdSense account, the plugin will detect this and show your AdSense publisher information. Please check that the publisher information shown matches what you expect.

If your AdSense publisher information is not shown, or is not what you expected, check that you’re using the same Google Account with the plugin that you use with AdSense. If you’re not, click the Sign out link to sign out of this account and then sign in to the plugin again using a different account.

If you already have AdSense ads on your site and you want to manage those ads through the plugin instead, you'll need to remove the existing AdSense ads before you place ads on your site using the plugin.
