I got an email from adsense after submitting my application

Your application has been successfully reviewed. Now you need to create your first ad unit and place the ad code on www.example.com to fully activate your account. Note that before your account is fully activated, only blank ads will appear on your pages. Once your account is fully activated, you’ll receive a confirmation email and begin to see live ads. Please don't click on your live ads, even to test them – doing so isn't permitted by the AdSense programme policies. Sign in to Google Adense to create your first ad unit and get fully approved.

Then I sign in to Google AdSense account but it is still saying

we are reviewing your site. Reviewing your site will take up to 3 days. We'll email you when we've finished.

and I am not able to click on any option in left side.

enter image description here So how can I create ads?

Can someone help what to do next

  • For what it is worth, probably by morning you will be able log on and continue to deploy your ads. If not then, then probably by lunch. A short lag time is understandable. Be patient. It will work out.

  • I seem to remember going through the same thing way back in the dark ages when wheels were upgraded from triangles to squares. ;-) I know you want to get started. Who can blame you? I did too. It may take a while longer. Cheers!!

  • Anytime! We are here for you. I have been around long enough to remember fire being sold as a flavor enhancer for meat. That should count for something!

I'm experiencing this same problem, but I got my email a week ago. For that entire week, my account has said, "Reviewing your site will take up to 3 days. We'll email you when we're done." I've already got the email saying the review is successful.

Any additional advice...? It doesn't seem that waiting a little longer is doing the trick.

    In other words, it appears that Google may have a problem right now. You may just have to wait until Google fixes their bugs. Commented Feb 1, 2017 at 10:20
  • hey their are many others who are facing the same issue , nobody knows how much time it will take , I think this is a bug in google system, even the google experts are not answering this question . this same question asked many times on google adsense forums but experts are not replying.. for example productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/adsense/…

I have found a couple Adsense forum threads detailing this problem, starting at the same time. 1/27/17 The dashboard directly contradicts the 'success' email. Almost definitely an internal Google problem... question is how to bring it to the correct peoples' attention.
Product threads are just user-based.
