Setting Up Your AdSense Account
Once you create your Google AdSense account, you will receive an email from the Google AdSense team. Let’s take a look at the message you will receive and discuss a few of the points contained in the email: —————–
Congratulations! Your Google AdSense application has been approved. You can now activate your account and get started with AdSense in minutes. We will now see Google take us through the process of setting up your account.
STEP 1: Sign in to your account.
Please visit Google AdSense and sign in using the email address and password that you submitted with your application.
STEP 2: Generate and implement the AdSense code.
Click on the ‘AdSense Setup’ tab, then follow the guided steps to customize your code. When you’ve reached the final step, copy the code from the ‘Your AdSense code’ box and paste it into the HTML source of your site.
If you don’t have access to edit the HTML source of your pages, contact your webmaster or hosting company.
In order for AdSense to work, you must build the unique AdSense code into your website. This is essential for the program to function.
Once the code is implemented, Google ads will typically begin appearing within minutes. However, if Google hasn’t yet crawled your site to determine its content, you may not notice relevant ads for up to 48hours.
As soon as you start generating and running ads on your site, you will be able to track your results.
STEP 3: See the results.
After you’ve started running AdSense, you can see your earnings at any time by visiting the Reports tab in your account. To learn more about what to expect from your earnings, visit <link>

Want to test your ads? Please don’t click on them! Clicking on your own ads is against the AdSense program policies.
This is extremely IMPORTANT. You cannot – must not – click on your own ads in order to turn a profit from Google AdSense. It is not only against program policies, it is ethically wrong and more than frowned upon. In fact, you can and will be caught, so please, be honest and respect the terms required of you.
You can add the AdSense code to a new page or site at any time. There’s no need to inform us or update your account when you do. Just please make sure that you only display code on pages that comply with our program policies.
Just because almost anyone can use AdSense does not mean it is a free-for-all. There are important guidelines to consider on when and where to place your ads, and while they are extremely unlimited, there are some limitations that are to be followed and respected.
We look forward to helping you unleash the full potential of your website. So, as you can see, Google AdSense is extremely easy to implement and even when you have questions, the Google AdSense Team offers additional help and ongoing support.
