Google’s AdSense has some few conditions if you want to set up an account. And if you’re thinking that it’s your time to earn money from your content, you must know, understand and adhere to these rules before starting with AdSense.

  1. You must have a blog, website or a YouTube account with quality content. This is where you will be placing your ads. An active page will more likely bring in visitors than a stagnant one. By following Google’s white hat SEO strategies and rules will help you rank higher in search results as well.

  3. Your site or page must be active for the last six (6) months. Meaning, a site that has been created three months ago is not yet eligible for an AdSense account even if it’s rich in quality content and visitors. Dead websites are not ideal for advertisers because of their lack of traffic.
  4. You must be 18 years old and older. If you don’t meet the age requirement, you can have a legal guardian to apply for an AdSense for you using their account. That means the account will also under in your guardian’s name and taxes if necessary will also be paid by him or her.
  5. Your site or blog’s content must meet Google’s SEO standards. Your website must not contain:

    2. Pornography or adult materials;
    3. Hacking tutorials;
