Activating your AdSense account

Connect your site to AdSense

To complete the AdSense activation process you need to connect your site to AdSense. Here's how:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Copy the code on your AdSense homepage.
  3. Paste the code into the HTML of your page, between the <head> and </head> tags.
    How you go about this step will depend on the tools you use to edit your site, e.g., HTML editor, website builder, CMS, etc. If you need more assistance, visit the Help Center or support forum for the tool you're using.
    View an example HTML page with the code added

    <html>
    <head>
    <script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
    <script>
    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({
    google_ad_client: "ca-pub-123456789",
    enable_page_level_ads: true
    });
    </script>

    This is the head of your page.
    <title>Example HTML page</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    This is the body of your page.
    </body>
    </html>

  4. When you've finished, check the box and click Done.
