Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
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?
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.
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?
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.
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!
