Verifying Adsense Account Using Phone Number and Proof Verification Methods

This is a guest post by Praiz Josh. 

You might not believe what you're about to read right now but, it's actually true. I registered for Google Adsense around late december 2010 and got approved by January 2011. After I got approved, I waited like everyone who applied for the Google Adsense Programme for my PIN to verify my account but it didn't come. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months but still, I didn't receive my PIN.

After I had waited for about 6 months without getting my PIN, I requested for another to be generated, this second PIN still didn't arrive at my door step. I waited at home for another 6 months for the second PIN hoping that it would get to me that time but, it never came. I was even thinking my contact details were incorrect; I corrected my postal address, house address and phone no. I actually requested for my PIN three times. It was some months later after I had requested for the third PIN, it all happened.

On one faithful morning, I received a message from Google Adsense that they've begun to serve unpaid ads on my account because it hasn't been verify and after a short period of time, my account would be disabled. At that moment, I woke up from my dream to face reality.

After searching for ways by which I could verify my adsense account without receiving my PIN via my postal address, I bumped into a very helpful work-a-round on the Adsense Help Forum .

Here are the two steps I took to verify my Google Adsense Account:

1. Phone Number Verification

This is very easy to undertake. What you'll need to do is:

==> Visit
==> Fill in the form with genuine details in the required fields (Name,  Email Address, Publisher ID...)

==>  In the Phone No field, make sure the phone number you're giving corresponds with your account information in your Adsense account.

==> Click Submit

2. Proof Verification

This is kinda tricky but it's actually very helpful.

==>  Visit
==>  Fill in your Name, Email address and publisher ID in the required fields. (Your publisher id looks more like this=>  "pub-2451xxxxxxxxxx" )

==>  In the attachment section, you'll need to attach a text file containing your personal details in this format:

  Contact Address:
  Phone No:
  Email Address:
  Publisher ID:
  Postal Address:

  * To easily create a text document, runs the Notepad on your PC (win + R and type notepad).

==> Click Submit.

NOTE: You can also upload a photocopy of your Driver's license, national ID card instead of the text file.

You'll get a reply under 7 working days. But in my case, I got my account verified under 3 days.

I hope this helps.

    Thank you Jide. I'm so grateful. Kudos and more power to your busy elbow. This post really helps.
    Unfortunately, Google said they will stop serving ads to my blog again if I fail to submit the PIN by 17th July this year.
