AdSense Accounts and different legal entities
Working with partners

 7:33 pm on Sep 8, 2003 (gmt 0)

We have a number of partnership sites that would be ideal for AdSense but the problem I have is that Google doesn't want you to have more than one AdSense account.

Unfortunately with the way the AdSense reporting is done I wouldn't be able to tell which sites are generating the click throughs and income, which makes it difficult to say to come to a sensible revenue split with our partners.

Do people think that Google would be okay for seperate legal entities to have seperate AdSense accounts even though those accounts would be managed by one person.

drop them an email explaining the situation, and I am sure they can oblige.

might be worth dropping the "webmasterworld" bit in :)

sure its possible and they make exceptions for cases such as this...

Tracking is a feature the is sorely needed. I have AdSense on 5 sites, and it's impossible to calculate the CPM each site is receiving.

6. Can I sign up for more than one account?
This is strongly discouraged. Because website publishers can place the AdSense HTML ad code on any page they own or manage, there is no need for publishers to create multiple accounts. Therefore, we generally limit Google AdSense accounts to one per publisher. However, publishers may create multiple accounts if they manage sites that require separate payments.

Same problem here. Currently I circle the ads through sites, always takeing one off each day and then I try to calculate average CPM for each site and the revenue split by impression share.

VERY complex and pretty non-sensical.

I hope they fix it soon, either by giving me more accounts, or by including site-wise stats.

After all, all this will result in is me flooding them with applications from every site I have (and taht's quite a few) with fake names, nobody would be served by that.

Thanks kittykat, that covers my situation perfectly, I must have overlooked it when going through the requirements.

There are some here who have managed to get more than one account for these kinds of situations.

About 3 or 4 weeks ago, someone received a reply from Google stating something to the effect that they will be offering ways to get stats based upon different domains, rather than just the stats overall. But I haven't heard anything else about that option since then.
