How Long Does It Take to Receive the Google Adsense Verification Pin

While this question might as well be "How long is a piece of string?" there are some rough indications and guidelines on how long it might take. I will go through these with you as well as telling you what the best way is to get your address verification pin...

Where is That Pin Going?

How long it takes depends a lot on where in the world you live. So if you live in some far off island or somewhere in central Asia, I would expect to wait up to the two weeks Adsense suggests. But in all honesty, most people get their Adsense PIN code within a week.

How Long Should You Wait?

Even if you live in the middle of a jungle, I would wait no longer than 1 month. After this time you can ask for another pin to be sent to you, but you can only ever get 3 chances at this unless you change the address it is going to.

How Can I Make Sure it Arrives?

While this might sound like pretty stupid advice, the best way is to make sure your address is easy to find, accurate and if you live within a community you will need to make sure there are clear instructions to your house. Again, this will depend on where you live and those of us with a zip-code or post-code it will probably get it a lot quicker.

And that is the best advice I can give you. Just give it a little amount of time (1 month) but don't forget about it and don't keep sending them after just a few days or 1 week. Be patient and when you get it to be exact because you only get 3 attempts at entering the pin.
