The first thing you have to do to get Adsense is, go to http://www.google.com/adsense and either apply or log in with your existing account email
One of the main reason of AdSense popularity is the fact that, it's been very easy for publishers to add the ads in their website and adsense pays a lot more than other advertising networks.
Integrating AdSense on your site takes just a few minutes, and you are good to go with one or more nicely integrated AdSense ads.
The first thing you have to do to get Adsense is, go to http://www.google.com/adsense and either apply or log in with your existing account email and password. On the next page you will see Google AdSense introduction and Terms and Conditions that you have to agree to proceed. Read it carefully.
You will be presented with a page containing all the reports which you can use to get a comprehensive status on how your AdSense advertising is doing. This allows you to improve your site's contents and layout to maximize your AdSense earnings.
On top of that webpage, you also have link to the Ads managing section where you can create the code, which you will need to add on your site to get AdSense banner ads or responsive ads on your website. Your choice among these options is dependent upon how users will navigate your website.
After that, there is a "My Account" tab which lets you set up details about your accounts, payment and tax info. Make sure you have cookies enabled on your browser.
There are 2 types of ads. Image ad units and text ad unit. You can select either one of them or both. The Image ads unit will show ads that contains images or animated images of different products and/or services, meanwhile the text unit will show only text ads that we see between paragraphs of a post on many sites and it contains only texts and links.
You can not be sure about which ad unit will work best on your sites as every site is different. Basically, it's a bit hard to know which type of ads you should use on your site, so, you should probably experiment with both types of adsense ads for some time and see which works the best.
There is also an option to see demo ads on the adsense website, which will help you to see how an ad will look on your website. This will help you in choosing the right size and type of ads. The more CTR an ad has, the better. More CTR means more profits too.
The next step is to choose your add size and colors. You can basically pick any color palette you want. Google offers some of its own presets if you do not have time or skill to create one.
You can see example of how the ad will look with different color and size in real time. Choose an ad that looks good to you. Image ads generate more profit compared to text ads.
But your ads format are limited to a few ones. There is an "Ad Formats" option which takes you to a page which lets you choose regarding which one suits your site. Occasionally image ads works really well, yet again, this can differ from website to website.
Once you complete with customization, you can click "Continue" in the bottom of the page.
Now the only thing left for you to do is write a lot of unique posts and get lots of visitors. Google AdSense crawlers will probably visit your website, to make sure the ads displayed are related to your site's content.
Try to carefully read Adsense's policies and don't do anything that might break or violates them because this will result in getting your account permanently banned.
