If you don’t already have a Google Adsense account, you will need to sign up for one. First of all, you will need to sign up for a Google Adsense account. It may take several days to receive your approval depending on how back logged Google is. To sign up, go to https://www.google.com/adsense/g-app-single-1 and fill out the form.


Make sure you fill out all the Google Adsense information out correctly because they will later be sending you cheques for your earnings. Please provide a mailing address for your Adsense account. That would aid your approval. Also, your blog must be older than 4 months and it must have unique articles. All these and more will make Google approve your account in 2-3 days time.


Once you have been approved, login to Google Adsense by going to https://www.google.com/adsense . Once logged in, in the very top right corner you will see ‘Publisher ID:’. All Publisher IDs start with the prefix ‘pub-‘ followed by a combination of numbers. This is the publisher ID that sites like infobarrel require in your profile in order to credit you with your ad impressions. Make sure you save the ID where you can easily have access to it.
