How many months I have to wait to put google ad in my website, and my website is three month old. Now have visitors of about 5000+ unique visitors/month. My region is India, somebody told me that for Indian website must have six months old. Also I have an doubt whether the site age is calculated my domain creation date or from site release date.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

i think the only age is meter is the age of a person who will receive money from ads. – igor milla Apr 29 '11 at 14:23
No I think you are wrong – vinoth May 2 '11 at 3:20

I don't see anything in the Adsense guidelines that says the age a site has been active is a factor for when it can sign up for Adsense. So the answer would be zero months. You can sign up immediately.

Based on the link you provided in your content it appears you do have to wait six months due to be located in India. Google isn't clear on whether the six months is from the registration of the domain for the launch of the site. You should submit your site for inclusion at the six month anniversary of the registration date and if you are rejected try again at the six month anniversary date of the site launch.

They specify in their site "In some locations, including China and India, we require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months." google.com/adsense/support/bin/… – vinoth Apr 29 '11 at 14:32
In would be n ice if they included all of that information in one place instead of spread out like that. I never would have found that if you didn't link to it. – John Conde Apr 29 '11 at 14:41
yes John Conde, Still I have confusion whether they are going find the domain age by whois record or from index date – vinoth Apr 29 '11 at 14:48
Domain age would be by whois since that is the authoritative source. How long the site has been live would be by index date. – John Conde Apr 29 '11 at 14:51
I know that difference. – vinoth Apr 29 '11 at 15:12
