Google AdSense is undoubtedly the finest contextual advertising system. It’s one of the simplest, most professional and trusted ways of making money through your passion by sharing knowledge and writing. Trusted by publishers and advertisers, Google AdSense doesn’t accept at random anyone who tries to get an account. Your application will be tossed aside unless you display a most professional approach. Statisticians say that of every 1000 applications daily, only 3 are accepted.
If you have been rejected in the past, learn from these guidelines I’ve laid out in this write-up and you’ll get the approval within three days. The tips I give you won’t get you approval instantly, but it will work if you go through each step carefully.
Make sure that your site is attuned to AdSense by signing up for an account with AdSense, logging into that account and adding AdSense code. Your blog will now show blank ads. Typically, it takes a minimum of 48 hours to evaluate your application. Once it is approved, it will begin to display advertisements on your blog.
Working on WordPress, ensure that your blog/website has a minimum of 40 quality articles, with rich content and relevant images. Two lengthy – 2000 words – and stunning articles will be an added boon. If you use HTML website or other non-CMS blog versions, have at least 50 pages on site in form of landing pages or articles.
If you don’t provide this information, Google may decline your application with an ‘Unacceptable Site Content’ or ‘Insufficient Content’ remark. So ensure that there’s enough content before applying: The greater the content will improve your chances of getting the approval.
What to Avoid
Proscribed Website Niches: You’ll get through type approval process quickly is your quality articles are based on Internet Marketing, Technology, Health, Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle, Social Media, Entrepreneurship, Travel, Law or Business. Don’t ever use any banned content! Don’t promote a public event – like an international boxing bout for this is just a rank promotion write-up and Google will instantly reject it.
Programs or Third Party Ads: Strictly avoid using third party banner codes on your site when you apply to AdSense. Google will look deeply into your site and they greatly dislike seeing third party advertisements there. Keep off Yahoo, Chitika, and Infolinks, ads or other networks. Stick to fresh content and widgets.
Here is the formal process:
- Go to AdSense.com and sign up for an account. Make sure that the name, address and site’s URL that you provide are all correct.
- Create AdSense codes after logging into AdSense and put the codes in the sidebar of your blog.
- Blanks will show up instead of ads till the final approval is given. This process could take 48 hours or even one week to get approval.
- An email confirming approval will be sent to you after AdSense gives you the final nod.
- Once you start earning $10 through AdSense it will send you a permanent identity number (PIN).
- You have to enter the PIN after logging into your AS account.
- All the necessary steps are now taken. When your account touches $100, Google will despatch your earnings. It’s best to have a bank transfer arrangement.
Some points to remember:
- Use TLD – Top Level Domain like www.sale.com and not www.xxx./sale.
- Improve your site before applying for AdSense approval and wait for 20 days at least in order to attract good traffic.
- Make sure that your content is original.
- Use your real name when you apply.
- Take care of all aspects while applying. Check and double check it.
- Your address must be your real one.
Don’t feel dejected if you don’t get AdSense approval at the first try. Google AdSense looks for quality so keep on improving your blog and apply again.
For India, China: Quality and not a number of visitors is what matters though it is said that bloggers from India and China have to wait for six months to get approval. But this is not a thumb rule, say AdSense moderators. They say, if a blog meets with their requirements, it’s good for approval. On the official AdSense page it is written that for countries like India and China, publishers have to own their websites for at least 6 months. But this is not a strict rule. In fact, many bloggers from India have got quick approval for a 1-month domain. The bottom line is that ‘quality always counts’-above all geographical factors.
In sum, to get Adsense approval, the number of visitors is not a factor, because you will get approved depending on your blog quality. It is sure that the Adsense moderator will never check for visitor count. So, don’t worry about visitors. But, for generating revenues, you must have enough visitors and so, quality content.
Many forums and portals say the Google AdSense doesn’t need a fixed number of page views to clear your account. But a decent traffic to your site will make a difference. Allow your blog to mature for a while – say, two months at least. Then go and apply for the AdSense program. It is recommended that you wait until you get at least 50 visitors a day. A minimum of 50 visitors/day is recommended; anything less than that will mean that Google will reject you.
