Eligibility requirements for AdSense

To participate in the AdSense Program, you need to meet our eligibility requirements. Here are some things to check before you sign up for an AdSense account:

  • Do you have your own content created from scratch?

    This can include your site, blog, or other original content. Read our tips to make sure your site's pages are ready for AdSense.

    Note: It's important that you can access the HTML source code of the site you submit for AdSense. Learn more about owning the site you want to use to participate in AdSense.
  • Does your content comply with the AdSense Program policies?
    Make sure that your site complies with our Program policies before you sign up. Keep in mind that we may change our policies at any time, and per our Terms and Conditions, it's your responsibility to keep up-to-date with them.
  • Are you at least 18 years old?
    As noted in our Terms and Conditions, we can only accept applications from applicants who are over 18.
    Note: If you're under 18, you may have a parent or guardian sign up for AdSense using their own Google Account. If their AdSense account is approved, all payments will be made to the adult responsible for the site.

If you use Blogger, YouTube or another host partner

If you use a product like Blogger or YouTube (or another AdSense host partner), you can sign up for a hosted AdSense account. Note that to be eligible, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. When your blog or channel becomes eligible for monetization via AdSense, you can set up your AdSense account and link these products.

Please sign up for AdSense via your Blogger account, YouTube channel, or host partner account. For more information, see:
