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

92 Flares 92 Flares ×

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.

Adsense Approval

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

Those days are gone 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. .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.

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

  • Don’t use 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 you’ve a professional looking design with a good navigation. 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. Your posts need to have more than 500 words.

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.
  • Get Google Authorship.

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.

    Thanks for sharing such a valuable information…
    But what to do if Google adsense reject you by saying that you have insufficient content instead of having 65+ post…

  2. says

    Hi
    Let me tell you one thing, Google sometimes approves AdSense application even though the blog is live for less than 6 months. The thing is it’s difficult to analyze Google strategy, some very good and high pageview blogs are getting rejected while some blogs having no proper content are getting approved. It’s like a game

    Hello everyone. will you please help me. I want to know that people say that increasing traffic through robot is not valid for google adsense. I want to know that what is robot. and secondly when we submit sitemap to our blog, we will submit it on custom robots.txt. is it all right. or i have done something wrong.?

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Traffic through robot and robots.txt are two different things.

      Traffic through robot means generates traffic by using software or any bots. On the other hand, robots.txt is a text file webmasters create to instruct robots (typically search engine bots) how to crawl and index pages on their website.

      Hope it helps.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Yes, you can. But you have less chance to get approved by Adsense. Because Google loves content based sites. It seems that you are running an e-commerce site. However, I would suggest you to apply for Adsense. At least you’ll know what Adsense team says about your site.

    Thanks
    manish

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      When they say “insuffucient content”, they actually mean the less few number of posts. If you’ve seen Adsense ads on a site with less contents, that means the site owner already have an approved Adsense account.

      And editing sitemap cannot be a problem.

      • says

        • Istiak Rayhan says

          1. Write more detailed posts.
          2. Make your homepage as your blog page.
          3. And keep updating your blog.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Immer, if your site language is not supported by Infolinks, then you won’t be to get approved by Infolinks.
