Google Adsense: Do I Need A Pin Number For Google Adsense?

Jul 3, 2008
When you accumulate your first $50.00 in earnings, Google Adsense will send you a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to the payment address you supplied when you signed up. This is just another security precaution that Google Adsense has in place to protect their publishers but it is very important that you follow through with the protocol.

Once you've been mailed a PIN number, your account payments will be on hold until the PIN is entered in your account. You can still have access to your AdSense account and continue earning money; you just won't be paid until the PIN is entered. If it hasn't been entered within 1 year, your account will be disabled.

To enter you're PIN after you receive it in the mail, log into your Google Adsense account, click on the My Account tab, and then click on edit. Update the appropriate(s) field and click submit changes. It may also be a good time to check your contact information and make sure it is correct. You're now well on your way to receiving your very first Google Adsense check.

Google Adsense: Don'ts for Using the Google Adsense Program

Google Adsense is a fun and is generally an easy way to make extra money. It's very important that you follow the rules as Google is very serious about the integrity of their program. Not following the rules could result in your Google Adsense account being suspended or terminated. Here are a few Don'ts for using the Google AdSense program:


Never, ever, ever click on your own ads. Google Adsense makes it very clear in their TOS that this will not be tolerated.

Don't ask members of your family or friends to click on your ads. Rather, earn money by referring them to the Google Adsense program itself.

Don't participate in the Google Adsense program strictly for the money. This is most certainly not a get-rich-quick scheme. It will take a considerable amount of time and hard work to make a profit.

Don't worry if you're unable to comprehend everything on your very first day. Although the Google Adsense program is extremely user-friendly, it may take a little time to integrate all the facets of the program. Be patient and above all, have fun!

Hopefully, these helpful tips that I have outlined will ease you into using the program and help you avoid mistakes that could inevitably end up costing you a lot of time or/and money.
