Hedonistically:


What's the difference between a US Google Adsense account and a Nigerian Adsense? I need to be sure. Is one potentially more profitable than the other?
.


Nigeria Adsense is 10k and USA Adsense is 5k only, the difference between Nigeria and the USA Adsense is that, When you use Nigeria Adsense Google pay directly to your Nigeria Local bank account,
2. You will receive higher earnings as a Nigerian if you use Nigeria Adsense cos, Advertisement from Nigeria Advertisers is being displayed on Nigeria Adsense, this will help you earn higher cos You are in Nigeria, and people visit your website mainly from Nigeria, Google believes to have reached the thereto ordience

USA Adsense : Google will pay you through payoneer if you use USA Adsense
You might not receive reasonable money if you use USA Adsense on less if people visit your website mostly from USA

Is you mean if I have Nigerian Adsense, only Nigerian adverts would be displayed?

What if it's a Nigerian blog quite alright, but I get a significant amount of visitors from the USA and Europe? Perhaps even more than Nigeria. Does it mean Google wouldn't display foreign ads there too?

I was thinking any Adsense would give you the best of both worlds. Since Google would place contextual adverts based on the visitor's IP location (USA visitors get to see USA ads while Nigerian visitors see Nigerian ads, etc).

Please provide more information about this, to help me make the appropriate decision.
