Google will like your blog if you provide high-quality content and you impressive visitors. Please note that your blog or website will be reviewed by real humans and you have to impress them to get approved.

High-quality contents should have:

  • It should be unique and original.
  • It should be long enough and should not be boring.
  • Your sentences should be free from grammatical and spelling mistakes.
  • It should be useful and informative.
  • Use of proper bullets and styling.

2. Create Privacy Page for Your Blog:

Many new bloggers or webmasters make a mistake is they ignore about privacy policy page.

Before applying for AdSense approval, blogger needs to add a privacy policy page to the blogs or websites. If you don’t include this page then chances are you will be disapproved for your application.

So you must be thinking why it is important? Well, it is important because it ensures that the reader’s privacy is protected and you truly care about their privacy.

3. Create About Page:

Like privacy policy page the webmaster or blogger should add “About us” page.

You need to add “About us” page because readers will know who you are and what you are up to and it also establishes a relationship with the readers and the webmasters or bloggers.

4. Setup A Contact Us Page:

 

 

5. Verify Your Name and Email:

When you apply don’t forget to put your name and email address in some easily visible area like about and contact pages. It will confirm to Google AdSense team that it is the same person who applied for AdSense and not some spam, crappy bots.

This will speed up the verification process and within no time, you’ll be able to enjoy fully approved AdSense account.

6. Have Some Good Number Of Posts:

What should be the minimum number of posts before applying for Google AdSense? There is no confirmed answer.

Not even one.

Because I have seen very established blogs with 300+ posts and their owner telling me that Google AdSense is rejecting them while somewhere bloggers with few posts or even less than 10 are enjoying making money with AdSense.

Exactly, what I said that there is no actual answer. However, we can always predict things.

According to my experience, the best time to apply for AdSense account is when you have at least 20 good quality posts. Your blog posts length should be at least 600+ words with quality content.

Dillon got his AdSense account approved with just 3 posts, 115 views, and 2 comments. Isn’t that great?

I visited his blog and noticed these things that actually matters to get Adsense approved.

  • Simple and clean design
  • Easy to navigate blog
  • Unique niche
  • Detail content
  • No “unwanted” widgets

 

  • But we know that when there is so much rush then there are rules too. Here for the AdSense also there are rules and regulations which will defend the bad.

Few Reasons behind Rejections:

Google AdSense has rejected websites because of the following reasons as stated below:

1.Insufficient Content/ Unacceptable Site

Your blog/website doesn’t have enough text on for Google specialists to review.

Google checks the contents thoroughly before accepting it. If the content is poorly written and has grammatical mistakes Google will reject the blog/website right away.

And many times The reasons behind the rejection is Unacceptable Site, this is because Google does not accept sites with porn content and site which has illegal contents. So take time and read all the terms and conditions and policies of Adsense then make sure that your blog/site follows all the given points.

2. Page Type/Design Of Blog 

This Rejection about How you blog and page look? We also can say it is about Design.

Blogs which are poorly designed and are hard for the readers to understand get rejected by Google AdSense. Your blog/website must have a good and neat design which comforts the eye and is beautiful in the look.

3. No Privacy Policy, About Us Or Contact Page

If your Blog/Website has no privacy policy, About page or Contact page then the reader of your blog will feel unprotected in your blog

Privacy policy page will ensure that the contents are real and readers are privacy protected.

About page will help Your Users and also Google to Know about your self it will increase trust for you in your user’s heart and For Google Adsense, It is a Proofs that you are not a Spammer.

Contact Page is also most important it will help users and also Google to Contact you.

4. Violations of Adsense Policies:

Google is very strict about following its policies. Google Adsense Policies,  Here you can read full policies listed by Google for their publishers.

 

THINGS TO DO BEFORE APPLYING FOR ADSENSE

2. Create Privacy Page for Your Blog:

One of the common mistakes that most new bloggers. Even though there are people out there who say that having a privacy policy for a blog doesn’t make sense but they are wrong!

The first thing you will need to apply for Google AdSense and get approval is the privacy policy of your blog or website. If you don’t have it you cannot get approval simple is that.

Why is it important?

It’s requirement of AdSense and secondly, this privacy policy means you are not a scam and gives the sense of a serious business. Google will check the rest of the conditions only if you have this policy.

A privacy actually describes to your readers about what they will get on your blog , what they should do and what they should not. So obviously there is nothing bad in having a privacy policy. While it can affect somehow on your AdSense approval, you must give it a try.

You can write it yourself or find Privacy Policy Generators online (You don’t need a lawyer anyway).

Helpful guide:

3. Create About Page:

Like privacy policy, you must have an about page so that you can get approved. This also shows that there is a real person behind the blog.

An About page has a major role and importance even if you don’t want to apply for AdSense. But when it comes to AdSense, they are about zero chances of getting approved if you are not showing this page.

About page simply describe you and your blog . This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also make them trust you.

4. Setup A Contact Us Page:

It’s quite obvious that everyone has his/her own opinion.

What one of your readers likes may be bothering someone else. Then it is better to give them an opportunity to speak up to you and tell how they feel about your blog, what they want to be edited , what they liked or hated.

Create a contact page, if possible add your email that you are going to apply for Google AdSense. If possible do get some professional email address like ammar@allbloggingtips.com and your social profile links too.

By creating this you are telling Google that we care for our customers, visitors and we are ready to help them. They can contact us anytime.

It will also show the Google AdSense Team that is viewing your site that you actually care about your readers and not only the money and AdSense.

Check out my contact page to get some idea.

One important step: Google AdSense mention in their rejection email that your website should have a clear navigation menu to help your readers find your pages and access the content before you think about applying again for AdSense.

So, what you’ve to do is to work on your menu by adding all important categories and pages i.e about us, contact us and privacy policy to help your readers easily find the content that they are looking for. The more you care about improving your visitors experience the higher chances will be to get approved by AdSense.

Here’s an example to illustrate this point.

5. Verify Your Name and Email:

When you apply don’t forget to put your name and email address in some easily visible area like about and contact pages. It will confirm to Google AdSense team that it is the same person who applied for AdSense and not some spam, crappy bots.

This will speed up the verification process and within no time, you’ll be able to enjoy fully approved AdSense account.

6. Have Some Good Number Of Posts:

 

According to experts, the most effective time to use for AdSense account is once you have a minimum of 20-30 good quality posts. Your blog/websites post length   should be a minimum of 600+ words with quality content.

Things that actually matter to get Adsense approved.

  • Simple and clean design
  • Easy to navigate blog
  • Unique Niche
  • Detail content
  • No “unwanted” widgets

 

7. Improve Your Blog Design:

When you visit a website what’s the first thing you look for? It’s blog design.

As mentioned earlier, your blog design matters a lot. It should be professional and not like a messy photo gallery. A clean, professional and fast-loading design is appreciated by Google.

You’ve to build a good first impression on your blog readers to engage them.

Your blog design is the biggest thing after content. This represents your expertise, experience, and professionalism. It should have following features:

  • Simple and professional
  • Easy to navigate
  • Proper menus
  • No useless items in sidebar or footer
  • Search engine friendly
  • Fast loading

 

If you’re on WordPress self-hosted blog then I recommend getting a premium theme from MyThemeShop.

And if you are still using Blogspot then there are many great websites where you can find free professional looking blogger templates for your blog.

8. Check Your Content-Type:

Be careful with what type of content you are publishing. Because it is something that truly matters.

Here are some common content types that are not accepted by AdSense.

    • Pornography/Adult materials
    • Pirated Content
    • Hacking or Cracking Tutorials
    • Illegal Drugs/Paraphernalia
    • Any Other Illegal Stuff
    • There are few languages that are supported by AdSense so make sure your blog language is in the list of these.

AdSense supported languages

Google AdSense team mentioned in one of their forum posts that they stopped accepting niches that are already saturated i.e making money, marketing, website and SEO stuff. You can read more here.

 

9. Use Top Level Domain:

Google has made changes to their policies. If you have a blog with Blogspot and the domain is yourblog.blogspot.com then chances are you will get approved quickly.

But you will not be able to use that on any other domain like .com. You’ll have to submit the request to upgrade your AdSense account.

As for today, you must have your own unique domain that specifies your blog. If you don’t have one yet, stop dreaming about getting approved with subdomains and go buy a Top Level Domain. It will cost anywhere from $10-$15/year. You can buy the domain from Godaddy or Namecheap.

The best domain is the one with .com extension. Choose a short, unique and easy to remember domain that is related to your blog niche.

Another important thing about the domain is its age. Because for some of the Asian countries like India, AdSense has placed domain age restriction. They don’t accept any sites which are less than 6 months old.

There are many AdSense stories that I read on many forums that some people got approved for few weeks old blog and other got rejected for the blog that is even more than 6 months old. So age doesn’t really matter when you have a high-quality blog that focuses more on helping your visitors.

If you have a website that is less than 6 months old then you can still consider applying for AdSense.

11. Remove Other Ad Networks:

If you have any other ads placed like Chitika, Infolinks, Clicksor or anything, it’s time to drop them off.

Make your blog free from ads.

Even Google AdSense allows you to use other ad networks along with them, it’s better to remove the ads before applying and don’t put them back until you get a reply from AdSense team which usually takes anywhere from few days to weeks.

So, before submitting your application for Google AdSense make sure to remove all the ads on your blog from any other network.

12. Check Your Traffic Sources:

Google hates the sites that are getting paid traffic and mostly penalizes them so there is not a damn chance of getting approved by AdSense for a site that is getting paid traffic. You can bring traffic from search engines or any other way you want but if you want to earn via Google AdSense the right way, paid traffic is not a solution.

Also, note, that Google does not accept site which gets traffic from illegal sources. So focus on getting traffic from legal sources like social media, search engines, and related blogs.
