    Hello, gurus,

    I have a one AdSense account but many websites. Can I safely use it for all of them? Please share your experience!

    Yes, but diversity is good. It's better (safer) to have 10 accounts making $1,000/month than it is to have 1 account making $10,000/month.

    Having multiple accounts offers you some security - if G cracks down on one of your accounts you won't lose all your revenue overnight.

    Yes. 1 account = multiple websites
    It is infact against TOS to have multiple accounts.

    That's a point, thank you. Does the Google allow to open onther one? Even for the same credit card or bank account?

    if you are worried about stats, than dont be. You can channel your adsense statistics for different websites in the same account.

    No, as stated, it's against their TOS.

    I should have been a little more clear - you can open multiple accounts if you have multiple businesses (I have 4 corporations). You can't open multiple accounts using the same social security or tax id number.

    As long as it passes the adsense TOS there is no need to contact them. You just place the ads on and start making money :) .

    I've checked your websites in your signature. What is your CTR there?

    It's against Google's TOS to divulge CTR, so I wouldn't expect an answer to that question.

    It has only just launched, I added the adsense to it yesterday and as dct rightly said, you won't get awnser to that question :p .ever.

    All I did was look at a few eyetracking studies and then looked at a few optimization tips from Google, hopefully it will be a good rate.

    I have but one site and one account but I did read a post elsewhere about how it is prudent to incorporate (as a legal person) in order to have multiple accounts for safety's sake.

    I would consider it if the dollar amount were high enough. Google confides in its publishers so little that paranoia is rampant. How can they expect us to rest easy when they can be so arbitrary and swift in their decisions to close accounts?

    Diversification in the face of uncertainty is prudent.

    If you search multiple in the adsense FAQ, you'll see they say you can post them on any page or website that complies with TOS and they will automatically detect it.

    Multiple accounts are good (not under your name, but you can have others open an account and manage it for them (you do the sites, etc and they give you a large percentage after taxes).

    One thing you’ll find is that payouts are different depending on the account. For example, I may get $2 per click on site A and when I move it to site B, I’ll get 50 cents per click. I have tested this many times over multiple days and always end up with the same result.

    Perhaps it’s there way of making revenue sharing less profitable, who knows.
