It's a nightmare.
Are you one of the following people?
firstname.lastname@example.org If so, then you've already updated your login to a Google Account.
Return to AdSense and use your Google Account to sign in.
Well, duh. That's my login I'm trying to use.
So I press the Continue button and eventually get to this:
I have an email address and password (Google Account) I already use with Google services like Gmail, Orkut, or the personalized home page.
I'd like to use my existing Google account for AdSense.
Then I get this:
The email address you've selected is associated with another existing AdSense account.
As a result, we're unable to update your AdSense login to this email address. However, you're welcome to choose a different email for your login.
Of course it's associated with an existing AS account. Now why can't I freaking use it? This is why I call it a nightmare. It's perhaps the worst user experience ever associated with Google that I can recall. The implementation of this account consolidation sucks, it was badly designed and confusing.
