    You are so wrong. before you can get a adsense account the domain must be at least six months old.

    Yes, this is a rather new guideline they've put on us. But, if you have a lot of content-original, you may be able to appeal graciously. :)

    When did this go in effect? Because I applied for an adsense account the same day I registered a domain and the website had 0 content on it about 2 weeks ago and got approved within hours.

    Probably they did not check it thoroughly and hence your application was approved ...

    Is it the "website"? Or the "domain" that should be 6 months old?

    When I first applied for Adsense account, I used a newly bought domain that is already 5 years old. The "website" on that domain was live in just 24 hours, and my Adsense account request for that site was approved within just a few hours, and ads have started showing up since then.

    Yes, because Google wants to wait for 6 months to see whether the guy would turn into a click maniac in that span of time. :D

    Actually, I have been searching everywhere to find the link directly to Adsense site (or blog post) stating the latest rule but I have not find any.

    But if they are only allowing a 6 month old blog, then I think it's really better. That time, I suppose a blog has already sufficient search engine traffic.

    Strange.


    So, they are approving sites that is no older than a day yet their ToS says a site has to be 6 months old (according to people on here)?

    Are they trying to trap us then? Have us make $$ for them and then ban us before we get our big checks?


    Hmmm....
