    Wow, 20M page views per month is still a long long way for me to reach :D In the meantime, I have to work on really hard with my blogs

      There is much easier way to apply. You can see what other experienced people wrote:

      You can only see the minimums here:

      A minimum of 1 Million pageviews per month – In other words you must have a daily traffic of at least 10-20 thousand pageviews. At least 100K-150K search queries per month – This approximates to around 5 thousand search queries per day.

      Hope it helped. :)

    Interesting. I guess I will see it as a new challenge.
    It would be quite an achievement to become a premium publisher. :)

  3. Hermanu says:

    I think it almost impossible to reach 20m page views or 5m search queries monthly just with blogs. We need something slightly bigger – a social networking site, news portal, social bookmarking, or other heavy content sites

  4. Technical Articles says:

    But I have seen some of the websites are premium adsense publisher while those sites don’t have 5 million search queries or 20 million page views.

    Can you please provide google’s link regarding premium adsense account?

  5. Bathroom says:

    Is there a way to get on the scheme even if you don’t get that many page views but have quality content?

  6. SEO says:

    its kind of unfair. Google should have some intermediate plan for small publisher. I have a website with more then 1 millions views per month. I am not that big like CNN. But still I generate much revenue. Even ppl like me should be given some good choices. What u think??

  7. usa says:

    That is what I’m going to do this year – to become premium adsense publisher. That’s my goal

  8. Travel Cebu Philippines - vincentt says:

    whew. cool info. Well, we will start targeting 100k traffic/month first haha.

  9. Mr.bhavesh says:

    Nice article,
    But how we can get such a large pageviews from our website in order to become become premium adsense publisher??

  10. Anish says:

    Yeah, thanks for confirming that up for me! Google can be picky. I’ve heard they send an invitation on their own, and you can’t really ask Google to give you a premium account.

    I fully agree with Hermanu, actually. It’s not easy for an average joe to build such a blog. (It’s not impossible, though.. There ARE blogs like lifehack, mashable, etc. which totally satisfy it .. Yeah, they’re more like online journals, but still..They’re what they are: blogs!) I’m working on a News portal. I’m gonna keep working hard on it, I’m hoping at least after years I can succeed in making it a big portal.

    Thanks again for the info!

    One gets “Google Premium Adsense” account only through invitation. Amit Agarwal (Labnol) from India is the first blogger to receive the Premium Adsense account. One more benefit from the premium account is that, you can use multiple ads in a single page.

  12. Amrish says:

    It may not be that Google considers the less performing sites too for Premium accounts but what I’ve seen is some of the premium account holders share their ads with other publishers and share revenue. Like if I have a premium account and I thought that your site is well reputed to use my Adsense ads I will allow you to use my codes and share the earning.
    What interests me in premium account is the ability to customize the look and feel of Ads. this can immediately supercharge the CTR and earning because ads are not displayed as normal Adsense ads. Wish if I get those Ads
