How to: Verifying Adsense Account Without Pin or Mail


Congratulations!



Adsense approved your request to show ads in your page.
You are motivated to write more content as this is the beginning to earn more money from Adsense.
Well done!

But Wait... There's More!




Unfortunately. Things happened in a wrong way. Just what happened to me a long time ago.
Just keep reading below for more.

For Your Information...



As what all bloggers knew, Once you have reached the verification threshold of ten dollars in your Adsense account. Adsense itself will automatically send a verification pin in your home address. 

Your pin (personal identification number)  will be sent 3-5 days after the date listed and may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive depending on the postal service.

Take note that Google will never send any tracking number for you to monitor the pin. 

They are following the standard mail service procedure in sending the pin (sounds like a Snail Mail Service).
So all you need to do is to manually count the days and monitor the weeks. 
And make sure that you enter correctly the postal code or zip code in your address otherwise you will not receive your pin and postal service will return it back to the origin.
I received my pin 2 weeks after they prepare the pin.

To know more about how I received my pin via verification mail. You can check this link.

Its A Nightmare and An Agony!




It's a publishers nightmare if they couldn't receive there pin as what Google provides the timeframe.
Others are getting demotivated in writing content. Just like what happened to me and others as well.

Google Adsense offers you 3 times to request for another pin. It's up to you if you want to change the address.  However, As much as you request for the third time. Still, you're unable to receive the pin.

Yes! There is an Alternative! What a Relief!


This is where verification via online form kicks in.
There will be a notification on your Adsense dashboard. A form of link is highlighted. 




Click that link and you will be redirected to an upload section.

Your email address associated with your Adsense is showing and all you need to fill is your publisher i.d and upload the necessary document.


Please note:  that only Government issued i.d card, bank statement or telephone bill displaying your payee name and your mailing address as it appears in your account.

Upload the file and hit submit.

The standard time frame for Adsense to approve your account is 2-3 days.

However, As I submit the document. I received an email after 3 mins. 
The email shows that my Adsense has been verified and it fulfills the Adsense verification requirement.





It was such a relief. I thought I would wait again for another 3 days.
Please note that upon the successful verification, you may still see the payment notification. But as what on the email says, rest assured that the pin has been verified and it will take up to 48 hours to disappear the red bar notification.   

That's it!

Now all you need to do? To start making money with Adsense and wait every 21st of the month for your payment :).


I hope that I was able to help you out with this little information of mine.

Dubai

-The land of opportunities for expats. And a well-known city in the world for its shopping spree at its finest luxury and unique, futuristic modern architecture.

What's Up Dubai?

When you heard the word "Dubai" One thing you will think about it, is there famous landmark - architecture.

Apart from Burj Al Arab, One tall tower that dominates the entire world is the Burj Khalifa. Also known as "Burj Dubai"




Construction From Earth To The Sky...

The construction of the tallest building began in 2004 and was inaugurated on January 4, 2010.
At the moment, The Burj Khalifa has been the tallest structure in the world.


A Must Bucketlist...

If you plan to visit this country. One thing that you would not miss to visit is the Burj Khalifa. An absolute bucket list must do. This 830 meters tall tower dominates the skyline of Dubai and it's foot lies to the iconic and famous dancing fountain within the Dubai Mall premises.



How Much Does It Cost?


As an expat, I got the privilege to received an expats voucher discount for only 75 Dirhams  (around $20.50).



The discount voucher is available within the Dubai Metro Station otherwise selected metro station as well.
I presented the discount voucher along with my Emirates I.D in the counter and I got the ticket.
You can pay by credit or debit card as well if you don't prefer cash.


Different Race From Different Countries- One Destination: At The Top

A lot of people are in a queue to pay, luckily I was the second in line. And I noticed that most of the tourist are from Europe, China, and Korea. It's really fascinating to hear those Koreans talk to their language ( as I Am watching Korean Soap Dramas,  As I knew some of the words that they spoke. Anyeong😃



After paying and had my ticket, I was advised that I need to present and carry the voucher along with my Emirates ID on the premises

A guy (wearing a Candora - Emirati's traditional dress for the gentlemen) welcomed me and He inspects my ticket and ID. After which, I was advised to keep all my belongings on the conveyor belt particular to items that have metals on it.

Security Check...

A security personnel scanned my body from shoulder to foot side by side.
All these security measures are being implied to all the visitors as this is for the safety of everyone.

A couple of staff are waiting, a few meters away from the security lane. And they got my attention as they invited me to stand behind the green background.

inset: middle- security conveyor and photographers


A huge green screen partnered with a professional camera and bunch of apparatuses for them to edit your picture, I was advised that I need to pretend that I am staring at the Burj Khalifa (behind the green screen) ( lol ) and pretending that I'm standing behind the Burj Khalifa. It is mandatory for them to do it as once you're done touring the entire tower, you have the option to take it as a souvenir. However, you need to pay for it and it cost 350 Dirhams. If not interested, just leave it.


There's a dedicated line as well for the Sky Vip. For those who want to pay extra and experience the luxury 148th floor at the top.

We are in a queue to wait for us to ride in the lift. A narrow passageway going to the lift and few turns from right to left ways, It is somehow very alley as there's an ongoing construction. While waiting,






There was a huge screen welcoming us and showing a clip about Burj Khalifa, Behind the scenes footage of Mission Impossible -Ghost Protocol and promotional video courtesy of Emaar - the real estate development company who is behind of the tallest tower.



Moment of Truth...

An attendant leads us the way going inside the lift.
A Capacious lift operated by OTIS Elevator Company was behind of this fastest elevator.
We were around 12 people inside the lift. As far as I remember, every 2 floors are 2 seconds and as we are reaching to the 124th, it took as 1 min and 4 seconds as I am relying on my phone's recording.
You can check my youtube video for your reference.


The Otis Lift


As the lift goes up, I can also feel the pressure inside my ear little by little.

Superb Experience...

The experience was incredible. There were an added audio and visual presentation inside the lift partnered with a stray of multiple lights or some animation I guess,  ( it was dark ) and a few screens for commercials and advertisement of the Armani Hotel.


At The Top Burj Khalifa 

Sheikh Zayed Road 


The 360-degree view is incredible. I was so speechless!
The viewing decks are an absolute must for photos. Everything is visible as there was a clear view of the skyline. Though the weather was hot at 43 degrees that I can't even use my iPhone's camera as it needs to cool down before using it.

high rise and Dubai Mall

125th floor via staircase


The famous Sheikh Zayed Road, the interconnecting roads, twisting flyovers, futuristic buildings, the building which is nearly finished to construct, commercial and non-commercial buildings, small to big establishments, Burj Al Arab. Everything!


I made it!!






Its breathtaking view of the Dubai Dancing Fountain and the rooftop of the Dubai Mall can be seen as well.


The road going to Sharjah- the third emirate next to Dubai is very clear.
I was so fortunate to see all these structures as you can't predict the weather that sometimes there's even a dust storm. It was perfect timing indeed.



Were allowed to take pictures on the 124th floor and 125th floor only.
A staircase going to the 125th is accessible as well.







Both floors offer a souvenir shop. And has a virtual reality (VR) - Interactive I say,  for you to experience more about the tower.



The 124th and 125th floors have there owned separate souvenir shops.





I spent my time for 2 hours at the top, taking the perfect picture, capturing the scenic view with the help of my Osmo Mobile 2 (gimbal stabilizer).



I have some of the pictures below.
I use iPhone X  and DJI Osmo Mobile 2 for my 180-degree panoramic shots.

Enjoy! :)
