Eligibility

Eligibility to participate in AdSense

While we can't say whether your site would be eligible without fully reviewing your application, there are a few things you can check before applying to see if your site would be a good fit with AdSense.

  • Do you have a website?
    You'll need one in order to participate. If you don't have one, you can create one using Blogger. Read our tips for creating great content so you'll attract users and advertisers to your site.
  • 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.
  • Does your site comply with our program policies?
    Check that your site complies with our policies before submitting your application. 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.
  • Have you owned your site for 6 months?
    In some locations, including China and India, we require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months. We've taken this step to ensure the quality of our advertising network and protect the interests of our advertisers and existing publishers.

When you're ready, just submit an application. We'll review your application and get back to you by email within about a week.
