What to do to make it work?

AdSense is a free program that helps you monetize your website by placing targeted ads provided by Google next to your site content.

When someone clicks on the ad, you get paid. Google handles the process of billing all advertisers and networks for the ads, so that you receive your payments.

NOTE: Before applying to Google AdSense program, make sure that your website is filled with original and unique content, and has easy navigation, as Google ads may not be placed on sites with scraped or copyrighted content. If you have not yet begun to build your website, we recommend EasyWP by Hewhost, a managed hosting service designed so anyone can have WordPress installed in under 90 seconds.

To do nine: Wait for Google to review your entire site and activate your account. For some websites the activation process can take a day, and for others it can take up to a couple of weeks:

There may be cases when Google won’t be able to activate your AdSense account. in that case, Google will send you an email explaining the reason why. But you don’t have to worry about it, you will have the opportunity  to fix the issue and request that your account is activated once again.

Another thing you should know is that the verification code has to stay on the website according to Google, so do not remove it after the account activation, if the code is missing at any time, Google will stop serving your website ads until you fix the problem.

Download the ads.txt for your Google adsense account and place it at the root of your website in most cases the home/public_html folder.
