01. Can you Apply for Google AdSense Program with a “.blogspot.com” subdomain?

Answer is Yes. You can apply to AdSense program with your “.blogspot.com” subdomain. Few years back AdSense had made mandatory for publishers to use a standard domain when applying to Google AdSense program. For that you had to redirect your “.blogspot.com” subdomain to a standard domain, but now there is no such restriction.

Let’s understand the difference between subdomain and standard domain with an example. The “example.blogspot.com”, “johnsmith.blogspot.com” are subdomains of “Blogger.com”, means they belong to Blogger.com. The “example.com”, “meersworld.net”, “wordpress.com” are standard domains. A standard domain is your own property because you purchase it from a domain provider such as Namecheap, GoDaddy, etc.
