AdSense Sing-up Has Become Easy And Approval within 48hrs Now For New Publishers
Google AdSense team today (October 08, 2015) has made AdSense sing-up easier. Now you can get immediate access to the AdSense account after sign up. You can create ad units, copy the code and place in your website immediately. But, still you need to wait for the approval. Now the best thing is, you don't have to wait for a week or even a month, As AdSense team now will look into your application within 48hrs of sign-up and process them immediately. The application and approval policy remains the same as earlier but the method and time factor has made simpler for the new publisher who wish to monetize their sites. Hosted (YouTube and Blogger) accounts still take the same classic route to apply for monetize. Upon approval of your application, your site will start display advertisement and generate some revenue. There is other ways of monetize your site once you get approval for your AdSense account, like: Google Custom Search Engine, Google Custom Survey, Viglink, etc.
