AdSense Minimum Requirements
The first step in getting approved for the Google AdSense program is ensuring that you meet the minimum requirements. Just like they won't let you into medical school without some biology classes under your belt, Google isn't going to let you into AdSense if you don't meet the minimum qualifications to be on the AdSense publisher network. After all,it needs to ensure that the advertisers in Google AdWords are getting their money worth.
You must have a website to be approved for Google AdSense. This may seem obvious, but many people considering making a jump into web publishing try and apply to AdSense first, and then setup a website. Otherwise, how would you start displaying Google ads on your website from day one?
Google, however, already has the daunting task of managing hundreds of thousands of active AdSense accounts on millions of webpages across the Internet. They are not interested in setting up accounts for those people who might end up developing a new website that is a worthwhile place for advertisers to publisher their ads. Instead, applicants to the AdSense program are required to fill out a line on the application indicating the address of the live, already fully functional website to be used for AdSense.
The website submitted for consideration must have a "majority" of its content written in one of the supported languages for AdSense.
Finally, the application must have both a valid address for the delivery of mail (a Post Office box is acceptable for AdSense) and a valid payee name. That is, payments will be made to the name listed as payee, so the listed name must be one that would be acceptable to a bank receiving a deposit.
