How to create an AdSense Account and start earning

When we start blogging, somewhere we have already heard about multiple ways of making money. This also includes making money by showing ads on your website. When I started blogging, all these things were too overwhelming for me to understand. Even, my first request of AdSense account was rejected. So, I spent some more time on my blog  and again I applied and well, lucky to have my AdSense account approved.

For newbies, AdSense is a program of Google (see Wikipedia), which shows ads on your website. Google pays you, when someone clicks the ad on your website. Google also pays when someone scrolls through your pages having ads (but less, and is called Impression).

As of now, I am using only AdSense ads on my blog. Also, I have discussed other ways for bloggers to make money in previous posts. Lets start with the first step to create an AdSense account and you will understand that it is super easy to make one.

      In India, 6 months age criteria is long gone concept now. You can apply whenever your website/blog has contents according to AdSense policies.
