Can You Get AdSense Approval With A Subdomain Site?

Adsense Account With Subdomain (1)

I have been asked this question many times that “Can I get Adsense approval with Subdomain?

Before we dive to the answer here some information about Subdomain.

Subdomain: A subdomain is a domain that is part of a top-level domain. For example, Blogspot.com is a top level domain and yourdomain.blogspot.com is a subdomain.

Subdomain can be two types which are subdomain from own domain and subdomain from third party domain.

If you are using your own subdomain and you have approved AdSense account then you can place Adsense codes on your subdomain. But make sure that your subdomain site’s contents are suitable with AdSense.




Now move to the third party domain name like Blogspot.com, WordPress.com etc. So our question was “Does Google approve Adsense ads for subdomain site?

The answer is YES. If you are using Blogspot or Weebly. Blogspot is also a Google service. It shares 100% revenue with the user. Weebly shares 50% revenue with their user. Weebly offers easiest way to get approve in Adsense. I got my Adsense account approved via Weebly.com . Unfortunately, Weebly banned my site. This is the problem of the subdomain. They can delete your site without any prior warning.

And the answer can be NO. If you are using subdomain like co.cc, co.nr, freehostia.com,WordPress etc. Many people argue that Google Adsense approve subdomain if the site has good traffic, design etc. But It is really tough to get Adsense with subdomain(Believe me).

So What Should You Do?

I know subdomain sites offer hosting with Zero Cost. But the problem is They may delete your site without any prior notice. So I highly will suggest you to go for your own domain and hosting. Once you have own domain you have full power to build your site without thinking about getting any penalty. Having an own domain is very easy.

After getting own domain, read this post: What You Should Do to Get Google Adsense Account Approval

Once your site is suitable for Adsense Ads, apply for Adsense Account

Hope this post clears you confusions whether Adsense approve sub-domains or not. Feel free to ask any questions or share your opinions on this topic.

    Hey Istiak
    I don’t think it’s advisable to go for adsense with a “SubDomain”. It will be better for one to acquire a “Top Domain” first before even dream of getting an approved adsense.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Exactly. One should try with Top level domain.

  • Zion Amal says:

    Hey Istiak.
    That was one of my major problem which you solved :) Thanks a lot.
    And is there any rule like, you must only implement adsense on 4 months old SUBDOMAIN? If the main domain is more than 4 months old?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Good to know that this post helped you to solve your problem.
      As per as i know there is no such rule that you need 4 months old sub domain or top level domain to apply for adsense account.

  • Jake says:

    This is probably a bit old but I got my adsense approved within a couple of days with my blogspot subdomain, my blog also only had 1 or 2 posts so maybe I just got lucky. I only just got a .com domain and all I have really seen is a 10% rise in traffic (which is nice I guess).

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Hey Jake,
      You are really lucky, man. Now a days it is tough to get approve with 2 0r 3 posts. You did a great job by moving to Top level domain.
      It will be more fun if you move to WordPress Platform. Good Luck .

  • Rohit Singh says:

    Nice post, I have a doubt, lets assume that I have a domain name wwww.royalyouth.com and i create a subdomain Tech.royalyouth.com.. Does Google approve Adsense ads for my subdomain site???

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, you can use Adsense on your own subdomain. Just make sure that your site compatible with Adsense terms and conditions.

    • Moorthi says:

      Yes you can apply. The google will approve your request.but your website has minimum of 40 pages or articles.

  • Rohit Singh says:

    ohk :) But If I have already Adsense on my TLD then???

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      That’s definitely not a problem. Start using Adsense on your sub domain.

  • sudhakar says:

    my approval disapproves after first stag saying site doesnot comply with the policy

    http://www.howtoread.co.in

    please if you get time sir check it…….

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Google Adsense doesn’t approve sites like co.cc, co.nr, co.in.
      So it is always better to start a blog with Top Level Domain like me (Roadtoblogging.com).

      • sudhakar says:

        if co.in is not top level domain then http://www.google.co.in is also not a top level domain…….so it should work for co.in also……….may be its not aplicable for co.cc, co.nr……

        • sudhakar says:

          my site is http://www.howtoread.co.in i.e. co. in is also a tdl

          • Istiak Rayhan says:

            Then it’s OK for you.

            • sudhakar says:

              finally got adsense…….:D

              • Istiak Rayhan says:

                That’s GREAT. Actually you domain is similar to co.cc, co.nr. So I thought Adsense won’t approve your site.

                • sudhakar says:

                  but thank you sir for giving your precious time….

  • suraj says:

    hi have a web site http://icefeast.sf.net. it can even enter this domain in creationg adsence account.it shows error that this is not a top level domain
    plz help

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Hey Suraj,
      Most of the time Google doesn’t approve subdomain for using Adsense. It only approves subdomain like blogspot.com, weebly.com etc. But I believe using Top Level Domain is the best way to get approved by Google. If you have more query, feel free to ask me.

  • Vipin Kumar says:

    Hey bro can you please tell ..will Google approve me for Adsense account for this url of my blog: http://techstap.blogspot.com/

        Thanks for advice..but bro can you tell what you’ve seen in my blog and said Google adsense will approve it ?
        Since i am little bit confused about my blog so i asked you this question !!!

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          You have a Good design, good contents, important pages like about, contact etc. But I suggest to you to wait 1 month and then apply for Adsense.

          • Vipin Kumar says:

            Thanks for your appreciation bro….

            • Istiak Rayhan says:

    Hey Istiak,

    Weebly’s Adsense revenue sharing policy was updated in late December. Users now get 100% of AdSense revenue. Just wanted to share the update!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for the update.

  • chevy says:

    Are you serious,? sites that are hosted on free domains not (TLD) and web host are legible to become a publisher with the Adsense Team.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Sub domains are legible to become Adsense publisher. But it is tough to get approved by Adsense with subdomain.

  • Anshul Barman says:

    Hello sir,
    I want to ask you how much one can earn from Google ad sense in a month? And what can be the average earning in a month from ad sense.

  • Gautam Sehgal says:

    Thanx for the informative post, i recently shifted from blogger to self hosted wordpress blog. Using Point theme, my adsense ads work fine on my blogger blog, but not working on my wordpress blog, Please help if you can

  • Imran khan says:

    Hi IStiak
    I got banned or disable two times http://www.edhole.com (adsense code was of other website) now i want to use adsense code to my subdomain
    http://ebooks.edhole.com (Age 3 month)
    http://admission.edhole.com (age 2 month)

    as per my website banned it will harm to my subdomain or it is different policy for subdomain.
    for adsense is there any relation bw domain and subdomai

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      If your main domain is banned by Adsense team, then you shouldn’t add Adsense code on the sub domain of the banned domain.

  • Ankit Sharma says:

    I have a approved adsense account on my top level domain. Now i am planning to create one more blog on blogspot.com (subdomain) so can i use adsense there? Will it b a problem with a subdomain?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It won’t be a problem as long as your blogspot blog is comaptible with Adsense Terms and Conditions.

  • Anubhav says:

    Hey brother, I just read you article over approving of Google adsense and find it much useful.
    But instead of this, I have few questions on my mind, I hope you will answer them.
    1- as you said that getting approval from free WordPress blogs is not a chance. I choose WordPress because the blog name I want to choose is not available on Blogger, am I on the right track of starting blog and get an adsense approval in near future?

    2- The blog name I wanted to choose has already been registered on Blogspot, but has Hardy one or two posts, is there any way to get that blog name on with my e mail? I mean something like transferring the whole blog to other email address?

    Silly questions, I know, but these will help me to setup my blog be ready for adsense.
    Thanks

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      1. You won’t be able to use Adsense on WordPress.com blog. You need to set up a self hosted WordPress blog to get approved by Adsense. Read this: https://roadtoblogging.com/wordpress-org-vs-wordpress-com/

      2. No, you can’t choose the name that has already been registered.

      Hope it helps.

      • Anubhav says:

        Sure it does & Thanks for answering.

        Well I am having another query too, that is.,
        Do I need to pay something to self host my blog?
        Or Do I need to purchase a paid domain like .com or .in?
        And can a blog with sub-domain be hosted? For eg., “abc.wordpress.com” can this be hosted or self hosted.

        PS- I dont want to invest money in the biggening, as I am short on it, I am a Blogger’s user, but now because of the blog name shifted to worpress for my new blog.

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          For self hosted WordPress blog, you’ll have to invest some money. As you don’t want to invest money I would suggest you to stay with Blogger platform. You won’t be able to get approved by Adsense with WordPress.com blog like ‘abc.wordpress.com’

  • Ryne Burke says:

    Hey guys. I have some remarks on this. You can use adsense on a subdomain. Especially if it’s a sever you’re running like Apache, and using actual HTML files to make your website. The trick is getting the adsense account, if you don’t have a domain to offer, and only a subdomain. My advice to you is to setup the account through youtube. No domain is needed, just a personal youtube page. Simple enough, right?

  • Dhruba says:

    Hello…Istiak Rayhan

    I want to ask you that I have a youtube channel monetized by adsense before and now when I have applied for my blogspot blog they have accepted but those ads are not showing in my blog. and my adsense account is still showing as hosted account because I have a youtube channel hosted on that same email.

    So now my question is that how to get rid of that?? Do I have to buy a domain and once again send a review for my blog?

    please reply fast
    my blog is http://skyanimatio.blogspot.com

  • Kashif Khan says:

    HI Ishtiak sir,
    can i get adsense with my subdomain.For exampel my site is:
    mysite.com
    and i have a subdomain like:
    blog.mysite.com

    Is this possible to get adsense with blog.mysite.com?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, you can. But you’ll have to make sure that your site is compatible with Adsense rules and regulations. If you haven’t apply for Adsense yet, I would suggest you to apply for Adsense approval with your main domain like mysite.com. Hope it helps.

  • Giftsnart says:

    hi
    my website http://www.Giftsnart.com is facing trouble with adsense so i want to know if i can make blog.giftsnart.com
    Would it be approved by Adsense, since it is a sub domain?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No. When it comes to applying for Adsense, it’s always good to apply with your main domain.

  • M says:

    Hello,

    I want to ask can i use adsense on my subdomain ? because i want to use sub domain for mobile devices and top level domain for pc devices only with the same content on both websites because i just want to redirect my mobile users to my subdomain. Is that violate adsense policy any way?
    Like my website is http://www.abc.com that i just want to specify for pc devices and its sun domain m.abc.com for only mobile devices with same content on both. is that allow for adsense?

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    M

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, it is allowed. Just make sure both of your domain are compatible with Adsense rules and regulations.

  • Saleem says:

    Hi ! Am now using blogspot and it has more than 40,000 page views per month, I want to sign for adsense and few months later I want to shift my blog to self hosted wordpress. My question is, will I be allowed to shifted my adsense to self hosted wordpress after being approved in blogspot?

    I will apriciate your answer

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, you can. Once you get approved by Adsense with your main site, you can add your other sites to your Adsense account.

  • Sanjeev says:

    Are you sure? sites that are hosted on free domains not (TLD) and web host are legible to become a publisher with the Adsense Team.

  • nikita says:

    Hi Guys I have a question. i have 2 Blogs that are 6 months old now. I got adsense approval through youtube last year month of august. Now that I can access the ‘ Earnings’ tab on my Blogger acct, and was able to insert ads on my one blog. Ive noticed that ads doesnt show up even viewing on other browser. Ive read in some forum that its necessary to have a domain or tld. But is it possible to get Adsense approval without a Tld or if I get many impressions on my blog, is it possible that the ads may start to show up????? Please. I do need a clear answer. Is it possible??

    Also, I just observed that my adsense earnings is bigger than my youtube earnings. And it is on the Finalized earnings. Does it mean that, Im already earning from my blog even if I dont see the ads??. Im kinda confused. Please enlighten me.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It’s possible to get Adsense approval without a TLD. Sometimes Ads don’t show because of having less Ads related keywords on a blog.

      For second part: Yes, those earning should be your blog’s earning.

  • Thank you for providing a greet information.

  • Graham says:

    Hi Istiak.
    I was wondering.
    I have http://www.picsaustralia.net permanently redirected to subdomain “blog.picsaustralia.net.
    I have received first stage approval for adsense by applying for adsense with http://www.picsaustralia.net.
    I have now created two ad codes and put them on my subdomain.
    Is it likely that I will get full approval with the permanent redirection in place and at no stage have I put an ad on the top level domain.
    The reason I ask is that no actual ads have appeared after a couple of hours.

    Thanks
    Graham

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      I think it’s not a problem as you are the owner of the site and it’s not a third party subdomain.

  • hello istiyak i have a blog some time before it is approved in aadsence but when the validitity of my domain is over the adsence suspended my account and hold my earnings so how can i get back my account please tell me.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Make your site live again and notify Google Adsense team about that.

    I’m looking to link AdSense with our blog. Base url is an online store and BaseURL/blog is a separate deployment.

    As adsense application only accepts parent domains. But parent domain, being an online store, less of text more of images got rejected.

    Please advise.

    hi bro,

    I have a website with own purchasing domain, I have applied my website to Google Adsense 4 times, but they rejected every time with the issue of content and user experience …but website look and content is enough. I am not getting that what am not full fill Google Adsense account.

    So, Please help me to approve my website in Google Adsense.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      If you have a heard time to get approved by AdSense, I’d recommend you to try AdSense alternatives.

      • Akash says:

        Hi sir,

        I have just 4 times to Google Adsense. I am not wanna to choose the alternative of Google Adsense.

    Hi Ishtiak,

    Can I apply this domain to Google Adsense ?/

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      You can. But I don’t recommend you to do so. It’s always a good idea to apply with the main domain name. Once you get the approval for main domain name, you can use AdSense ads on subdomain.

      • Akash says:

        Thanks for your great answer !!
        But my main domain name not approved by Google Adsense.

  • Arpit Saxena says:

    Hi,
    I have an E-comm website i.e. http://www.gobystyle.com and a blog website http://www.blog.gobystyle.com so i would like to know if i would submit my top level domain for adsense and the initial code we receive after the submission of top level domain,
    So can i paste that code in my subdomain as my toplevel domain website is E-comm and made on Dot net and i want to show the ads on my blog subdomain website.
    So can i get a approval for my sub domain after pasting the initial code which we woukd received after the submission of top level domain for adsense?

  • joshi says:

    No. You can add subdomains your ads may display but you won’t be able to earn anything. Until and unless you go in adsense settings and again apply to verify site. Here you fail to verify subdomains. So why to become mizer? if you want to earn money, invest 680=00 INR in domain purchase from blogger itself, then they will respect your activities. Why one think to earn millions by not investing a single penny. Its a business. Before few years it was not the case but within last few months Adsense is observing and implementing many filters.

  • Hello,
    Basically i want to know about another thing which is how many adsense we can get approved on single domain name ????
    because there are many people who are getting aprroved 2 3 adsense on single domain so i want proper answer of this.
    Thanks in advance
