So by now, you know how to create and get the approval for AdSense.
Before getting into ‘How to have multiple AdSense accounts’, we must first understand the need for creating multiple AdSense accounts. As it’s possible to have multiple websites and YouTube added in a single AdSense account, but it comes with some cons.
Cons Of Having A Single AdSense Account
The major issue which creators may have with a single AdSense account is caused due to the tight Google Policies for content creators. It can be the suspension of the whole AdSense account due to an issue caused by the single website. Let’s dive into the different situations which do and don’t affect the AdSense account.
Effects of AdSense Policy Violation on YouTuber, Blogger, Self Hosted Website (AdSense for content) & AdMob
- If your Blogger violates the AdSense policy and got monetization disabled, it will not affect the YouTube, Self Hosted Website (WordPress, Core PHP, etc) & AdMob but all of your Blogger websites attached to that AdSense will get demonetized.
- If your self-hosted website got demonetized due to a policy violation in that case your Adsense account will be suspended and all the self-hosted websites attached to that AdSense account can never be monetized again from any other AdSense account. Whereas your YouTube and Blogger and AdMob will be safe and can be added to another AdSense account.
- If your YouTube channel got demonetized then all the YouTube channels associated with the AdSense account will be demonetized by Google. Other websites will not get affected.
- If your YouTube channel got suspended due to community guidelines, then it will not affect other YouTube channels. But if your channel got suspended due to copyright guidelines then all the YouTube channels associated with that AdSense will get suspended (Yes not demonetized all the channels will directly get suspended).
- If due to your YouTube channel your AdSense account got suspended, then you will never able to monetize that YouTube channel, and all of your self-hosted websites can’t be monetized again with other AdSense accounts. But your Blogger and AdMob will be safe.
- If due to AdMob your AdSense account got suspended all your self-hosted websites (WordPress or Core PHP, etc) will get permanently restricted from monetizing through AdSense. But YouTube channel and Blogger will not get affected.
Pros Of Having Multiple AdSense Accounts
As it’s pretty clear from the cons of having a single AdSense account that why having multiple AdSense accounts is essential.
If one of your YouTube, Blogger, AdMob, or Self Hosted website got demonetized, it will not affect others as we have a different AdSense account.
Also if your one AdSense account got suspended your other AdSense account will be up and running and you can utilize those.
Having an individual AdSense account for each website or YouTube channel will give you a better understanding of AdSense stats, how your ads are performing and you will have a clear idea about your CTR.
Now let’s directly jump onto:
How To Have Multiple AdSense Accounts?
Before diving deep into this topic, some of you may ask, why it a big deal to have multiple AdSense accounts as signup for AdSense is pretty easy and one can have as many accounts as many Gmail IDs one has. Ya it’s true you can create multiple AdSense accounts but that will not be of any use. As you can see in the SS below. 👇👇
Google doesn’t allow a single person to have multiple AdSense accounts. Google compels you to add all your website and YouTube channel, AdMob, and Blogger in a single AdSense account.
Then what’s the solution, as to form the cons of having a single AdSense account are pretty threatening and thus it becomes essential to have multiple AdSense accounts.
You need not worry, as there are some loopholes in Google and AdSense. You can create an AdSense account with the name and details of your family members or friends. (Cool isn’t it) Thus in this way you can have multiple AdSense for your multiple websites or YouTube channel.
Just keep in note that any of the details should not match with one another. Also, try to create a new AdSense account, on a different-different device or different browser.
It is to be noted that the address of the two accounts should also not match with each other. Hence either you use a completely new address or make a slight change in the address name (It also work pretty fine).
Also, you can change your address details as many times as you want before the pin verification. (Pin verification process will be conducted by Google as you crossed the $10 revenue mark)
One more thing that you should know while having multiple AdSense accounts is that you should not provide one bank detail to two or more AdSense account. Use different bank details for different accounts.
How To Manage & Maintain Multiple AdSense Account
As discusses above you can have, multiple AdSense accounts based on different Gmail ID and details, one thing which you should keep in mind is that do not use the same browser to login to your secondary Adsense.
So what you can do to log in to multiple AdSense accounts?
- Use different devices to log in to different-different AdSense account.
- Use the incognito window to log in.
- Use a different browser to login
- Can also create new gusset browsers to login (Prefered)
Cons Of Having Multiple AdSense Accounts
By now you will be pretty sure that one should have multiple AdSense accounts, and I too think it is pretty genuine to have, but having multiple AdSense accounts comes with its own price.
It bit hectic to maintain multiple AdSense accounts as you can’t use the same device or browser for logging in.
Your AdSense details should not match with each other and many times it’s pretty tough to come up with totally new details, like your bank account and address.
It’s pretty difficult to cross the $100 mark with a single website or YouTube if you are a small creator.
If anyhow Google gets to know that you got multiple AdSense accounts, all of your AdSense accounts will get suspended wth all the earnings will be not refunded and in the future, you will never be able to again monetize any of your website or YouTube channel with Google AdSense. (Pretty harsh, isn’t it)
Pros Of Having A Single AdSense Account
Managing a single AdSense account is pretty easy. As you will have a single panel for all your websites and YouTube channel. This will directly save your time and efforts.
It will be easy for you to cross the $100 threshold, as you have multiple ad revenue streams coming from websites and YouTube channels.
You will be legit in the eye of Google.
Ya I know the pros list of having a single AdSense account is a bit short 😁😁😁
Wrapping it up…
In this blog, we had discussed how to have multiple AdSense accounts, the pros, and cons of having a signal and multiple AdSense accounts, and how to maintain and manage multiple accounts. We had also discussed the Google policies for AdSense suspension and how it can affect your other website if you got only one AdSense account.
I recommend you go to the multiple AdSense account model coz it is a much safer path and you will have less probability of your website, YouTube channel, AdMob got affected due to any Adsense policy violation. As at the end, Google uses bots and you can’t do much if your AdSense account got suspended, whether you are a culprit or not. Hence it’s always better to have multiple AdSense accounts. I know many content creators who follow such a model and are not facing any issues.
In the end, the decision is up to you.
I hope you got to learn a lot through this blog.
