How Do I Start with Google AdSense?

Google AdSense is one of the ways to make money online in Nigeria. So many bloggers in Nigeria already know what it is and how to start with Google AdSense. Not only that, there are lots of Nigerians who make money from AdSense every month, actively and/or passively. If you don’t have a Google AdSense account yet, this post is for you. I wrote this because of I got to answer this as part of the readers questions.

Please follow the steps below to get started.

Step 1. Register a domain name and get a web hosting account. This is essential because you need a blog to place AdSense ads. Not only that, registering a domain name and getting a web hosting account shows that you are serious about online business and not just for AdSense only.

If you have an account with adsense already, you might need to get a paid domain and web host and them move your blog from free blog to a paid blog.

Step 2. After you successfully complete step 1, make sure you develop your blog’s looks, structure and accessibility. Also add between 10 and 20 useful and unique posts on your blog. Make it appealing to people. Don’t just make it a “copy and paste” blog. Involve your uniqueness.

Step 3. Go to and apply for an adsense account as a publisher. This should be done at least 90 days after you started your blog. This gives you more probability to be accepted by Google Adsense. You can choose to do otherwise, but if you really want to be accepted and also make money from adsense, ONLY apply when you are sure that someone will want to advertise on your blog via Google AdSense.

In registering, make sure you choice the best account type, either personal or business. Fill the form correctly with all the right information about you. Make sure all the information provided by you is correct before you finally submit your registration for Google Adsense.

After you are accepted, it’s time to start placing the adsense ads on your blog.
