Get Google Adsense Approval
  • Save

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. Maybe, 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 copyright 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 a 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 sites 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.

Do let us know if you’ve any other tricks to get approved by Adsense. If you find this post useful, then don’t forget to share it on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

    Thank you for your interest in expanding your Google AdSense account to implement ad code on your own website. Unfortunately, after reviewing your application, we’re unable to approve this application for the time being. Your existing AdSense account that allows you to show ads on partner sites is not affected by this disapproval.

    We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.

    Issues:

    Site does not comply with Google policies: We’re unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines. It’s our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this criteria.

  14. Just follow few thumb rules:

    6. Every article should be at least 600 minimum words and maximum unlimited.
    7. Every article should have used 4/5 times your keywords.

    1. The question is why do I need AdSense still if I can do all of the above? I can easily join any good affiliate program or sell ad spaces to earn 10x more than AdSense.

      AdSense is not less than a joke for me. If you are a passionate blogger and producing quality content, then the smart way to monetize the site would be affiliate marketing.

      1. Yes, AdSense requires a lot of traffic to generate a decent amount of money. It’s possible to make a good amount of money from affiliate marketing with some targetted traffic. However, as you are an affiliate marketer, I’d recommend you to check out Affiliate Marketing section. We have some awesome post.

  15. This is the best AdSense implementation tips I have read so far. Also, if traffic is low, then it might not be a good idea not to place AdSense. This will scare visitors away. I was not aware of having contact details, thanks for mentioning them.

  17. This is the best AdSense implementation tips I have read so far. Also, if traffic is low, then it might not be a good idea not to place AdSense. This will scare visitors away. I was not aware of having contact details, thanks for mentioning them.

  18. Hello admin,

    This is a wonderful post. Thanks a lot for this. I just started blogging, and I would really love to use AdSense. But you said on your post that AdSense doesn’t require a lot of traffic. Please, what do you mean?

  19. Indeed a great post about Google Adsense approval.

    Google Adsense is the best advertising network and people love to place adsense ads on their websites. I don’t find any other alternative which can replace Google Adsense.

    But It is also hard to get an approved Adsense account. and I don’t think that there would any exact method by following which we can get adsense approval.

    You wouldn’t believe that I got 2 Adsense account approval with a blog:

    1. Which is few days old.
    2. Having only 8-10 posts.
    3. 0 traffic on that blog.
    4. Not having any single important page like About, Contact or any other.

    Before these 2 approvals, I tried so many times with a blog having all the things like important pages, traffic etc etc But I never get approved with that blog.

    That’s why I believe that there is no any exact method by which we can get approved Adsense account.

    BTW I appreciate your efforts and Thanks for sharing such an in-depth article with us. :D

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience. It is true that there is no exact formula of getting approved by AdSense.

  20. Hi! Thanks for sharing!

    By the way. I have a question. I’m just a newbie in blogging and i want to apply my future website to adsense. I just want to know if the niche regarding online selling like real state, condo unit, buy and sell, computer and printer parts, subscription offers, services like computer repair etc. Is that kind of niche will accept?

    Sorry for my grammar. I just want to reach you guys !
