Get Google Adsense Approval! 7 Things to Do That Really Work

Get Google Adsense Approval

Would you believe that I applied for Adsense with a WAP site that didn’t have any option to put Adsense codes?

Believe it or not, but it’s true. And Adsense rejected my application. Cause that application didn’t make any sense to Adsense team.

That time, I didn’t have any idea about Adsense and how it works. All I knew that website owners can make money from Adsense. So I thought why not give it a try. After all, I was a proud owner of a mobile site.

Like me, there are a lot of people  who apply for Adsense with low quality sites. That’s why Google became more strict on approving new Adsense accounts to maintain its quality.

I believe that you have a good web site (not wap) but Google disapproved your application. May be, this is the reason you are reading this post.

Getting rejected by Adsense is frustrating. After a few rejections, many new bloggers get this idea in their head that they won’t get Adsense approval ever. If you are one of them, you are not alone. And you are on the right place.

In this post, I will be sharing some tips on getting Adsense accounts. Most of these tips will be helpful mainly for Bloggers. I hope you’ll get approved by Adsense after reading this post. So keep reading…

7 Things to Do to Get Approved by Adsense

Google doesn’t reveal any hints on what basis they approve new account. All you can do is to maintain some standards before applying for Adsense. You can also consider the following tips as Google Adsense Approval Checklist.

1. Get a Top Level Domain

Gone are those days when people  would get Adsense account with free sub domains site like blogspot, weebly etc. Google still approves sub domains site, but you have to make sure that your site has good contents, nice design, easy navigation etc.

It’s really tough to make sub domain sites compatible with Adsense standards. Google has already banned some sub domains site like .co.cc, .co.nr.

So I suggest you to grab a top-level domain like me (RoadToBlogging.Com). .Com, .net, .org, .in, .com.bd etc are the top-level domains. Here is an example to understand the difference.

  • Free Sub domain – roadtoblogging.blogspot.com
  • Top Level Domain –  roadtoblogging.com

Go get a domain name from Godaddy. (Read: How to Buy Domain from Godaddy)

Here are some important things you should consider before buying a domain name.

  • Don’t use the words hack, crack, downloads etc on your domain name.
  • Avoid copy right violation. (You cannot use others Brand Name on your domain).
  • Don’t use any adult term.

2. Good Design & Easy Navigation

You may have good contents on your site. But it doesn’t guarantee Adsense approval unless you’ve good design and easy navigation on your site.

If you want to make money from your site, then you should consider investing some money on site design. WordPress user can go for Premium Themes. If your budget is low, you can grab a theme from MyThemeShop.

So make sure that your site has a professional looking design with a good navigation. And don’t forget to create a logo for your blog.

3. Submit Site on Search Engines

Whenever you launch a site, you always want that people can discover your site easily. Search Engines are the place where people you find your site easily.

All you need to do is submit your sitemap on search engines.

And also make sure that Google has indexed your site’s pages. Type site:yourdomain.com in Google Search and check whether Google indexes your site or not. Sometimes Google takes one week or more to index your site. If you’ve some relevant backlinks, you pages will be indexed fast. Interlinking blog posts also helps Search Engine Bots to index your pages.

4. Connect Your Site With Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools

Analytics and Webmaster tools are two awesome tools by Google.

Google Analytics provides detailed statistics about your site. And Webmaster tools provides detailed report on site’s pages visibility on Google.

These two tools help you improve your site performance that increase the chance of getting Adsense account.

5. Publish Fresh and Unique Contents

This is the most important part.

You have to create fresh and unique contents before applying for Adsense. Adsense doesn’t require huge contents, but quality contents. Some bloggers got Adsense account with only 20-30 posts, while some didn’t get approval with more than 100 posts.

So quality contents matter a lot. Quality contents are those which are well-developed and researched, free from copyrighted things and illegal download links, not copied from others, user-friendly and detailed.

So try to publish some quality content. Remember, Quality content is always king.

Adsense Prohibited Content: Copyrighted contents, Adult content, Hacking & Cracking related contents, Gambling/Casino/Alcohol related contents and all illegal contents.

6. Remove Other Networks Ads

It’s not a bad idea to try some Adsense alternatives when you don’t have an Adsense account yet. But remove those Ads before applying for Adsense.

Though Google allows you to use another Ad Networks with Adsense, but it creates a bad impression to the Adsense team if your site is filled with other networks’ ads.

7. Create Important Pages

There are some pages that provide better user experience. Google always focuses on better user experience. Most of the new bloggers don’t create these pages. Having these pages creates a good impression to the Adsense team. So create the following pages before applying for Adsense.

  • About – Most of the first time visitors visit ‘About’ page. They want to know who you are behind the blog. In about page, you can write about yourself and your blog or whatever you want. Here is my about page.
  • Contact – This is the most ignored page. You will realize its important once you have it. You might have missed direct advertising because of not having contact page. Learn: How to Create Contact Page in WordPress.
  • Privacy Policy – According to Adsense TOS, you must have a privacy page that contains information about cookies, device-specific information, location information and other information stored on. So create a privacy policy page for your blog.

Other Things to Consider

  • If you’ve more the one site, then consider applying with best site.
  • Your content should be written in English or other Adsense supported languages.
  • Give your actual information while applying for Adsense account.
  • Your age must be 18 years or above to participate in Adsense Program.
  • Sometimes Google requires 6 months older domain in certain countries including China & India.
  • Avoid Paid Traffic. (Adsense doesn’t require a lot of traffic)
  • Don’t use copyrighted image, Use Images with Credits.

Finally,  Read  Adsense Terms and Conditions & AdSense Programme Policies.

Once your site is compatible with all the above facts, then apply for Adsense Account. Approval process takes 24 to 48 hours now.

Once you’ve got Adsense account, you can use Adsense ads on others site owned by you. That’s why you might have noticed that some low quality site contain Adsense Ads. But that is not a good idea, Always ensure that you site is compatible with Adsense policy before adding Ads. Adsense may ban your account if they find something wrong on your site.

    My blog (www.taskerdunham.com) has recently been approved after just 3 months and 12 posts and is now showing ads. It may be because (i) I am in the U.K. and (ii) all my posts are very nearly text-only with between 1000 and 2000 words per post.

    Istiyak Vai,
    I have created and running a English blog site (http://rupayon.com) for Adsense. I am naturally 18 years old. But according to my certificate, I am 17 years old. Can I apply on Adsense? I decided that I will apply for adsense by my elder brother and his info. I need one more help that please visit my english blog site and tell me, can I get adsense after few months if I run my site with present condition. Hope I will get reply and help from you.

    Thanks

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Hey Maruf, I’ve just checked your blog. You are doing good. Age doesn’t matter if you have already a bank account. If you don’t have any bank account, then apply with your brother’s account.

      Here are few suggestions for your blog:

      1. Don’t offer free download. Adsense team hates it.
      2. Pick a niche. Don’t write random posts.
      3. Publish some detailed posts. Adsense doesn’t require a lot of posts, but quality posts.

  7. says

    I think so it is useless to get approved in adsense if you dont have enough traffic. Even by some means if you get approved , with a low traffic , then your earnings will be like 0.01, 0.05,0.23 $ etc per day which are of no use.

    Thus not getting approved in adsense = adsense with low traffic

    • says

      I agree with you partly. Nothing will happen overnight. It will take many years of consistent effort to make a decent income from Adsense like affiliate marketing. My first affiliate marketing income was $3.47. After good effort, it has not increased much. Just $150 per month. But its reasonable free income in India (my country). It helps me to pay my phone bills,hosting and other petty expenses.

  8. says

    Thanks a lot. I was planning to give my website for the adsense approval thinking it was performing well.

    But surprisingly i had some prerequisites missing (as mentioned in your article). You just saved me from getting a rejection.

    Thanks Again…. :)

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Best of luck!

  9. says

    My blog is approved by google adsense when blogs aged 2 months and the number of articles is 10 . I feel lucky because it

    I have created an sports site ” http://sportstv24.net/ ” for Adsense. I heard that Adsence dose not allow TV site but I have seen some TV sites have Adsence. Can you suggest me! Is there any rules for TV sites?

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      I have no idea whether Adsense accepts TV sites or not. However, you should apply for Adsense to know the fact.

  11. says

    Really very helpful post but still if adsense not approve our website we can use many other networks which pays well. :)

  12. says

    Hey Istiak, I think one of the problems of most young bloggers is age. I’ve heard from a friend that you need to be at legal age which is 18 before you can apply for Adsense.

    Hello

    i have recently created a blog regarding fictional stories & the contents are 100% original & unique i also have the top class domain http://www.shortstoriesfor.com and there are zero images all text in blog.. but there are some words in story like F*** & S**. So my question is that.. is it ok with adsense as it was just to express mood of the character in story & it does not have something to do with porn..

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      I think it’s ok.

  15. says

    Fresh and unique plus non-pirated content is must to get adsense. It took me almost 4 tries to get adsense. All I did was remove few posts which might be causing delay in approval.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      So true. Thanks for sharing your experience.
