I never thought to write an article on Google Adsense approval as there are plenty of articles written about it on the Internet. What changed my decision to post an article on AdSense approval was the disapproval of my account!!
As, I read plenty of articles featured on the internet, noted all the points shared by different bloggers and experts, done everything but still getting disapproved really got me frustrated!
It was then, I decided to read and make a note of all the guidelines of Google Adsense along with the points shared by other authors too.
And after implementing all the basic rules on my blogging website I got the AdSense approval within 24 hours!! 🙂
Well, today I am sharing my strategy which will help to get your account approved and start monetization on your blog!!
- So all bloggers, business owners, and entrepreneurs who have suffered from disapproval or..
..looking to apply for Google AdSense Approval make sure you read and cover every point featured below before applying to AdSense!
How to get AdSense Approval?
Let’s track all the parameters we need to take care of before applying.
To your, tracking convenience I have divided the points into two categories – Things to Do and Things to Avoid.
1. Get Your Website Indexed By Google –
This should be your first step when thinking off to apply for AdSense. Before moving on to other parameters AdSense makes sure that your website is indexed in Google.
Checking whether your website is indexed by Google is really easy.
All you need is to type – site:example.com in Google and look whether the pages from your site are shown up.
Well, if your content of the website is not shown up in Google results! You can manually submit your website for indexing to Google through the Webmaster.
2. Top Level Domains –
I have included this point as top level domains like .com .net .org etc. looks authentic and causes no problem for Google to approve your AdSense quickly.
- Domains which are .tk .pa . sdk looks spammy or related to black hat world..
…even free domains like abc.wordpress.com or xyz.blogspot.com get delayed approval or no approval at all!!
3. Domain Email Address –
Domain email address represents authenticity to Google. Like I have firstname.lastname@example.org for my blog.
Make sure you write this address on the contact form clearly (you can refer my Contact Form to check out the details to feature in)!!
Try to make it less confusing for Google and your website visitor to contact you.
4. Unique and High-Quality content –
This point is mentioned by every blogger in their blog posts and Google too!
- Unique and high-quality content is something that we should always maintain not only for..
..AdSense approval but to rank our blog post on Google too.
- You can only get visitors to your site if you provide values to their problems..
..ultimately a large audience visiting your site will result in generating high revenue from AdSense!!
5. Important Pages like Contact, About, Privacy, Sitemap, and Disclaimer –
Linking important pages to your website at correct location is very important from Google’s perspective.
Google makes sure that audiences are easily able to contact you if they have any trouble with your website or want to discuss any deal with you!
So, you have to make sure that you link –
- About – Describe your website content as to what user is going to get from it and then do mention about yourself.
About page according to me is one of the strongest pages which can build a strong connection between you and people around the world.
- Contact – Make it as simple as possible..
..Don’t stuff your services and promoting stuff on the Contact page. Do place your email domain address clearly so that it is easily get spotted by user and Google!
- Sitemap – Google treats this page to understand the flow of your website. Check whether all your posts, pages, and categories are well linked in sitemap.xml.
- and Disclaimer – to get an idea you can see my Disclaimer page here.
Pages in the Header or Footer section of your business website.
1. Focusing On Number Of Blog Posts Or Content –
Most common discussion topic for applying for AdSense is – How much blog posts or content you should have before applying for AdSense?
Well, I say at least 5-10 with good length of around 500 words.
No need to wait for 25-30 post as mentioned by many writers!!
Trust me you will be simply wasting time doing so.
Why am I saying 5-10? Well, 5-10 articles on your blog will help readers engage and if they are ranking on Google SERPs! This is an awesome catch for you to grab organic leads.
More the organic visitors more revenue you will be generating from Adsense.
2. Waiting To Get Your Blog Older!!
Thinking of, How old your blog should be?
You definitely might have heard a lot about – that your blogging website should be 6 months old or 2 months and some even say a year!
Well, your head is going to spin now as I am going to reveal out the truth which state –
Even if your blog has not even completed a month you will get the AdSense approval!!
I am not just saying but giving you the proof of one blogger among many I’ve in my list who got their account approved for less than a month old blog.
3. Placing 3rd Party Ads and Banners –
Google AdSense doesn’t prefer any other advertising on your platforms. Though there are certain Advertisement services which are Google AdSense friendly like Media.net, AdSterra, Amazon affiliates, etc.
I have specifically mentioned Banners here! Now, banners here refers to both advertisement service and the affiliate networks.
- I have placed affiliate banners on my sidebar, this was the time I got denied by the Google AdSense!!
..I guess you not take the risk and remove all the banners down from your website for quick approval!!
4. Displaying Make Money Online Category Or Having Restricted Content –
Google hates categories and topics like Making money online, gambling, adult, violent and hateful posts!
Remove those categories, restricted content and related post!
My advice here would be if you want to keep the category like Make Money Online wait until AdSense approval, once you get approved you can feature your category again.
5. Building Up Traffic –
No Traffic is required!
I said so, as Google is not going to calculate your traffic for the approval!
People mention this point on their blog to convey the importance of traffic with monetizing with Google AdSense.
- My personal experience with traffic on TheMaverickSpirit (TMS) clearly state that –
I was making few cents when the daily traffic to TMS was in hundreds but I started making $$$ when my traffic boosts to thousands of visits per day!!
So, YES! Traffic is directly proportional to Google AdSense Earnings.
6. Maintaining Alexa Rank –
Google has nothing to do with Alexa!
Don’t wait by making efforts to bring your Alexa down and to get busy building the backlinks. No Need!!
Enjoy making money on the table right from the starting.
If you will follow the above guidelines and take off every basic rule that Google features you will get the AdSense approval in the first attempt!!
Let me know if you have any query related to AdSense approval, I would love to answer them.
