What is Google Adsense and how do I get a Publisher ID?

In order for writers to earn money for the Google Adsense ads on their Infobarrel articles we require that you have a Google Adsense account. If you don't already have a Google Adsense account, you will need to sign up for one, as we need you to provide us with your Google Adsense Publisher ID.

First of all, you will need to sign up for a Google Adsense account. It may take several days to receive your approval depending on how back logged Google is. To sign up, point your browser to https://www.google.com/adsense/g-app-single-1 and fill out the form.

If you don't already have a website, you can just place the url of your Infobarrel profile as your website URL when signing up. For example, if my user name on InfoBarrel is 'test', my url would be 'http://www.Infobarrel.com/Users/test'. If you are going to use your Infobarrel profile as your Google Adsense ID, make sure you have at least one approved article, otherwise Google may deny your account due to your profile being 'under construction'.

Make sure you fill out all the Google Adsense information out correctly because they will be sending you your checks for your earnings. The wrong address, means no checks!

That is pretty much it, once you have been approved, login to Google Adsense by going to http://www.google.com/adsense . Once logged in, in the very top right corner you will see 'Publisher ID:'. All Publisher IDs start with the prefix 'pub-' followed by a combination of numbers. This is the publisher ID that we require in your profile in order to credit you with your ad impressions. Make sure you grab this ID, place it in Google Adsense Publisher ID field in your profile and save it.
