Just saw this when I was checking my account earlier. Full text is;

Create a Google+ page
Creating a Google+ page brings you closer to your audience by letting you have real conversations with the right people, connecting you face to face, and making it easy for people to recommend you on Google search.

Also has a check box to tick to indicate whether or not "you've done this".

Fairly agressive cross-product marketing from Google there - haven't really seen anything like this before. An interesting move, but has an air of desperation about it.

Worth noting that although it's posted as a "recommendation" there's no information or suggestion that it would impact your Adsense account in any way.

When you're working in reactive mode as opposed to pro-active mode (Google+) you are already at a disadvantage. Catching up by shotgun isn't a good strategy.

IMHO .. people are getting bored. Google knows this.

You can only round so many people up to keep visiting your site until they bore and wander off to someplace else.

My question, in the context of site promotion and web development, would be this .. "Why would you want to drive your clients/potential clients, or other possible traffic, to a web property that you don't own or have any control over?"

Facebook and Google are the bottleneck that prevents other, possibly much better sites or internet properties, from realizing their fullest potential on the www .. Google and Facebook knows this, and will stop at nothing in their attempts to even further skew the traffic field in their favor.

If you need to advertise, fine, go to Doubleclick, aka Google, and do the deed.

Otherwise, keep your content, ideas, and other what-nots contained in your own domain .. Don't give the adservers anything other than the simple ad pointed to your products, services, and content.

I clicked the "dismiss" button a while back and the message went away. Today it came back.

I decided to create a Google+ page for my website but the name (first/last) was rejected.

Apparently, Google will not let allow us to create Google+ pages for businesses or web sites?

Does Google want us to create a personal Google+ page and associate it with our Adsense account?

What would be the point?

You create a personal page, and from that you can make a business page. And if you want to know what the point is, google a post on gizmodo called the case against google.
