Help: I Can’t log into Google AdSense

Thursday, February 4th, 2010 | Business | by

Yesterday I went to login to my Google Adsense account and found myself in an infinite loop of “Click here to login”, then “Sign up” as the only option.  There were no options to actually login.  This was very frustrating.

Normally I’m used to logging in with:

https://www.google.com/adsense/

This would usually redirect me to the site, and all would be fine.  Now when I go there, all I see is a “Sign up now” button.  If I click on “Sign up now”, there is a link that says “Already have an account?” and points to the help files for AdSense, which isn’t much help.

After searching around I ran into a forum post at WebmasterWorld.com, Can’t Log-in To AdSense – Asking to Update to Google Account.

There I found an answer from what appeared to be a Google rep:

OK, we think we’ve figured out what’s going on here (and by “we” I mean my friend the engineer).
It looks like this issue is only happening to folks who signed up for adsense before we asked everyone to use a google Account. When we migrated everyone over to google Accounts, if you used the same email address for your google Account as for your previous account, you may be experiencing problems with your login screen right now.
This also explains why so many WebmasterWorld people are seeing this problem, as you guys tend to be some of our most experienced adsense publishers.
We’re still working on correcting the issue, but I’ll get back to you as soon as we’ve got something in place. In the meantime, some publishers experiencing this same issue have reported that they can log in using this URL: https://www.google.com/adsense/login2. Let us know if you’re still having issues logging in using this URL.
If you use the URL the poster mentions, things work like they used to.  This sounds like it’s a result of the whole change to “Google Accounts”.  I had thought I used my account, since I only created my account a year and a half ago or so.

Resolution – How To Login

The result, is try logging in using the following URL:

https://www.google.com/adsense/login2
