"Domain ownership not evident" in Google Adsence
Google have some strange things

 9:47 am on Jun 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

I try to be in Google AdSence, but the respond has been: "domain ownership not evident". And over my point of view this point in my site is evident.

Someone have been the same experiencie? What can I do?

Maybe you registered your domain through a proxy, or you have one of those domains who hide contact info on the whois...

People who registered their domains through domains by proxy or other privacy enabled domains will have to prove domain ownership to google (they recommend a fax).

this was raised by "cdkrg" msg # 173

eboli, yes I did.

I applied twice becauseI co-own a site with someone and wanted the accounting different. One was accepted, one was not. The one that was not listed Navigation and Domain Ownership.

I understand the first reason as I'm using Burst on that site and they show a lot of pop-ups, but the Domain Ownership one stumps me. The Whois info is the same for both, the only thing I changed was the email address in the signup. I suppose it could be because I applied twice? Dunno.

The rejected site is likely to make more on Burst than on Adsense showing Peace Corp banners, so I'm not going to bother with it. <added> Not that adsense isn't worthwhile because it is - just not for that site. </added>

..of course it also could just have been two different reviewers.

I had a fascinating experience with the signup process (well, perhaps this highlights how boring my life is in comparison :D).

I submitted my site for AdSense consideration on Wednesday, and then last night around 1am I got a note saying that they needed more info on my domain ownership. Strangely, they didn't tell me why at first, nor give me info on providing proof... but they did so around 2am after I followed up on the original note.

At about 3:30am or so (I'm a nightowl!) I tried to send a fax to them, but got no answer.

Next chance I had, near 3pm, I tried sending the fax again and was successful. Within one hour, I got a note indicating my acceptance into the program.

Do they have folks working around the clock?!? :D

"Do they have folks working around the clock?!? :D"

Googlers work hard. :)

(Dang, I should have waited until 4 a.m. to post that! :)

I signed up days ago and haven't heard back. Unless I did and they emailed me back during that window when the spam made my inbox temporarily full :)
