Multiple Adsense Accounts Per Household?
Can husband and wife have separate AdSense accounts?

I thought I've read on here somewhere that some people have spouses with their own AdSense account?

My husband is wanting to try his hand at webmastering and I want him to have his own account, separate from mine.

Anyone else do this? If so, what is your experience? Is it ok with Google TOS?

Thanks!

Hi,

G allows separate accounts for separate legal entities, ie separate businesses.

Now, if you explain your situation to them I think that there is a fair chance that they would allow what you ask.

What G wants to avoid is one sociopath covertly creating tens of accounts to hide/ease fraud, etc.

Three months ago I opened a separate adsense account for my wife, so she can track her own progress. In August she got her first payment from Google, so I think everything is fine. I guess if it would be against TOS, Google wouldn’t allow opening the second account on the same address when we applied for it.

My 24-year-old son applied for (and got) an AdSense account not long ago, and he used our household's mailing address because it's more permanent than his apartment address. No problems so far.

EFV, does your son have a separate business entity? I can't remember what is asked for at sign up. Does a person who wants to sign up for an AdSense account have to have a business at all? Can they just sign up using their social security number?

Thanks!

Yes, he just signed up as an individual with his own Social Security number.

Justify the requirement for it and, generally, there's no problem.

I have two accounts, one business in my name and one personal and, again, in my name. How easy it would be to do that now I have no idea since that was in the early days of AdSense.

That's true. I found the process simple and the response from Google understanding.

I would like to keep only one account.
But I do not wish my publisher code to be same ( or visible) on my upcoming new sites.
Any way out?
Or should I get a new account?

My wife also has an adsense account. In fact, because of tax reasons we had the income from my main site in her name. I also have an adsense account I use for tinkering around and experimentation.

I emailed Google before signing up explaining that we wanted separate accounts, and they said fine as long as we understood that any action that caused one account to get banned would likely result in both getting banned.

Publisher code is ALWAYS visible - it's appended to the end of all links in order that Google can credit your account. You can't keep it a secret!
