How To Do Google AdSense ID Verification in Nigeria

Google AdSense is one of the best means of monetizing your blog. Getting AdSense approval is one thing, verifying the Adsense account is another.

There are 2 modes of AdSense verification.

1. The ID verification
2. The PIN (Personal Identity Number) verification

Once you have reached the verification threshold, Google AdSense will notify you that it is time for Identity verification. What that means is that, Google want to be sure of the person that will be using their services, where is the person from, the name of the person, the person’s address etc.

Before you do Identity verification, you need to make sure the address you are using in your AdSense account tally with the one you are going to send to Google.

You have 3 attempts to do identity verification, if you failed the third time and you don’t carry out the necessary steps – which is contacting Google AdSense support, you may end up losing your Adsense account.

Before I moved further, I have a friend that failed Identity verification thrice, he decided to close his Google payments profile, afterwards, he contacted AdSense support, his account was restored but unfortunately he lost his earnings, that was the price and he was ready to pay for it.

Let me not bore you with my friend story.

For Identity verification, the following document are supported.

1. International Passport
2. National ID Card (not the NIMC slip, I mean the plastic ID card)
3. Driver’s License
4. Bank Statement

Once you have one of those document. The next thing to do is to capture it, the photo should be readable, in focus, free of reflection and glare.

Note that if the picture is partially or totally obstructed or the photo is dark or blurry, it may not be accepted.

Once you have done these, follow the steps below to proceed with the AdSense Identity verification

Am going to share with you here how I got my AdSense approval with a 3weeks old domain name and about 12 contents.

With the new AdSense policy, it is very easy to get AdSense approval even though your domain name is just a day old. I apply for AdSense the same day I host and purchased my domain name after adding about 7 contents. And during the review process I stated adding more contents after 2weeks my account was completely approved and ready to show ads. If you really want to get AdSense approval as mine, follow the steps am going to list here:

1. Buy a custom domain name and it should be a top level domain (tld) extension; examples of top level domain extensions are .com .org .net .info etc. But .com is best for blogging and it is the most commonly used domain extension. Custom domain name (such as www.okakasite.com www.shoutmeloud.com)will make your website to be relevant in the sight of AdSense and it will make AdSense to be serious in the approving process. You can use your domain name on blogger or WordPress (these are the two most popular blogging platforms).

Contents is the area that AdSense takes seriously, 90% of accounts disapprove by Google AdSense is because of the contents. Make sure you follow their contents guidelines, and if there are some contents you need to copy, don’t copy everything change some words in it.

Some people though they did not copy contents, their site still got disapproved why?

4. Instagram captions

Instagram captions are essential for a successful account. They give your audience everything from context for your products and services to essential calls to action to drive conversion forward. For example, Bucketfeet, a shoe manufacturer, uses Instagram captions to highlight collaborations and new or limited designs.

5. Connect With Influencers

As we previously mentioned, many brands incorporate user-generated content to connect with users, collaborate on content and promote one another’s Instagram. But these people don’t need one million users or have to be a celebrity to help you gain more exposure.

It’s smart to nurture and value your connections because just like your audience, influencers deal with robotic messages all the time. Try to build real relationships by meeting up at industry events or asking to host joint webinars.
