How Long Should You Wait for Adsense to Verify Your Details?


If there is one question that gets asked more than anything else about Adsense it is people wondering how long it takes to "verify" your details. While this might seem like something Google could do in a heartbeat, it really isn't that simple. But that still doesn't answer the question of how long, but in this article, I will indeed answer it...

So why isn't it that simple for Google to verify your details?

The first main issue is the maths behind Adsense. Sadly you are not alone in signing up for Adsense and while official Adsense signup numbers are unknown you can bet that it is about 1-5000 sign-ups per month with both websites, blogs and all the YouTube channels getting approval. So thinking of these MASSIVE numbers you really shouldn't be surprised that it takes time to verify your account.

As long as you have made sure your details are correct, the site/channel is suitable for getting Adsense approval and your site/channel traffic is from legitimate sources you should be fine and wait no longer than 6 weeks. Do also consider the details that are out of Google's hands, from the sign-up code being sent to the bank account verification. This will take a while and is not necessarily in Google's hands.

So how long will it take for Google to verify my Adsense account?


So how long will it take for Google to verify my Adsense account?

While the Adsense support page says it could be "as quick as a day, and for others, it can take several weeks" the general rule of thumb is to wait at least 6 weeks. Also, make sure you log into your Google Adsense account every few days to make sure it is not asking for more details or even better than that it has already been approved. As I told you above the numbers of people trying to verify their Adsense account is growing all the time, so give Google time because sometimes details and account checking will need a human eye and that will take a while (once again, thinking of the numbers above).

The best advice I can give you is to concentrate on posting the best content you can and growing your audience. Or even better is to wait until you have 20-30 articles published before you even try to apply for Adsense. But in the meanwhile, you could always try using Amazon Associates Affiliate Program to earn a few pennies before you get approved by Adsense.
