I will be taking you through the Google AdSense account activation steps Required for Ghanaian Publishers.
After you create your AdSense account, you need to activate it.
Then you can start showing ads on your site and earn money. We will cover three steps of account activation
Activate your AdSense account in Ghana
- Completing your payment address details
- Verifying your phone number
- Connecting your site to AdSense.
Let’s start with
Completing your payment address details.
It’s important that you enter this information correctly so that you can get paid.
You’ll need to choose an account type to start. You can choose either an
individual or a business account type.
There’s no difference in the services or payment structure between those types.
Individual accounts are paid out to the payee name of the account holder, whereas business accounts are paid out to the company name.
It might not be possible to change your account type once your account is activated,
so please be careful when making this selection.
Then you’ll need to enter your name and address.
Enter your full name exactly as it appears on your banking information.
This information is crucial for you to receive your payments
without any problems, so make sure your name and your address are accurate.
Note that you must be able to receive mail at this address.
When your account reaches the verification threshold, we’ll mail you a personal identification number.
You will then need to enter it in your AdSense account.
It’s not required in all countries.
But if it’s required for you, you’ll see a card on your
AdSense home page.
If you’ve previously verified a phone number for Google, you will see your verified phone number listed in the phone number field.
You can choose to use this phone number for AdSense and skip the rest of the phone verification process.
If this isn’t the case for you, you can choose whether you’d
like to receive the code via a text or a voice call.
Please make sure to use the international format– a plus sign followed by the country code, the area code, and the phone number.
Connect your site to AdSense.
It’s as easy as copying the code from your AdSense account and pasting it into the HTML of your site.
You need to paste it between the head and head text. If you’re using
WordPress, we highly recommend using the SiteKit plugin.
SiteKit can connect your WordPress site to your AdSense
account and place the AdSense code on all your pages for you,
so you can show ads automatically across your site. If you created your site using a content management system, you’ll need to check if your CMS has AdSense built in or if it supports a plugin that can help you implement your AdSense ad code.
If you need assistance with the plugin, visit the official support
forum of your service or the developer of the plugin.
Please double check that the site you used for AdSense and the URL
you paste your AdSense ad code are the same. In case they aren’t,
you can change it here.
You can then click on the “I’ve pasted the code into my site” and click Done.
If adsense can not detect the ad code on the site, your account activation
won’t go through.
Please also be aware of the following tips to make sure you don’t encounter
any problems with connecting your site to AdSense.
- Make sure that your site complies with the AdSense program policies.
- your site needs to have unique and original content, and it should attract
genuine user interest.
- if your site is under construction, doesn’t load, or if it’s difficult
to navigate, we can’t activate your account.
- your site needs to be reachable so that we can review it.
- Make sure your ads txt filemis accessible for crawling.

Then you can set up ads on your site and start earning money.
