How to Get Approved For Google Adsense
We all know Google AdSense is the best ad network for monetizing for our blog. A lot of bloggers consider Adsense as the top monetizing network. It is because it provides the highest CTR which you cannot find in any other ad network. Every blogger wants to be successful earning a lavish amount of money. But, it’s not as easy as to say. It’s google Adsense. Google imposes a lot of strict regulations and requirements on your blog to get approved. Even, the successful bloggers had a challenging task with AdSense approval, and even I had a tough time with google Adsense. But, I eventually got approved for google adsense by implementing few things.
Is your blog ready for AdSense?
Before that, the first thing you have to make sure is if your blog is ready for google adsense. Because I saw a lot of new bloggers are just applying for Adsense without any having any knowledge about it, and eventually, they are getting rejected. So, before applying to adsense, make sure your blog is complying with the google adsense guidelines and regulations. You cannot fool Google, Adsense has a google crawler checks all our content and it decides whether if our blog is deserving enough to provide thier services. It’s all about what content we are producing in our blog. It’s about SEO as well. If you’re writing quality content and optimizing well with SEO. You will be approved definitely. But, If you’re writing any illegal and scrap content. There is no doubt that you will be rejected for sure.
How to Apply AdSense for your Blog?
If you properly don’t know how to apply for google adsense. Check out this and if you’ve already applied. Skip to the next step!
- The first step you need to do is open Google Adsense Sign up Page
- Fill up your website URL and your blog email address ( make sure you provide the same email address that is connected with your blog )
- Provide all the details it asks such as ( Country, Phone Number, Address )
- After you entered all details, Click Submit and right away it will provide you AD code
- Copy the ad code and paste in the headers of your blog
- Tick the checkbox ” I’ve pasted ” and after several days, you will receive email from AdSense ” if you’re approved or rejected “
It’s really great if you got mail from adsense that you’re approved. However, what about the people rejected? I suppose most of the newbies at the beginning most likely to fail. So, let’s see what are the must do things to get approved for google adsense.
1. Make Sure Your Blog is a Root Domain
I saw a lot of bloggers applying to google adsense with a subdomain. If you don’t know what subdomain is. It looks like blog.example.com. You have to apply for adsense with the root domain which looks like example.com. Subdomains are very bad for SEO and adsense don’t consider these kind of sites and they rarely approve sub-domain blogs. Besides, you will be approved for google adsense if your blog is root domain.
2. Well- structured and Well-Designed Blog
As a new blogger, it is a little tricky to choose themes for your blog. Some bloggers chose bulky and heavy themes which have a more chance to slow down your site. In that case, AdSense rejects and doesn’t approve your site if the theme isn’t responsive. There are tons of themes available in WordPress or Blogger.
In WordPress, you can see lots of themes. You have to pick a clean and responsive theme that shows content in an organised manner. So, make sure your blog is customized well with a header, sidebar, footer, and content area. It’s the users and visitors that see your blog. If they don’t like your site structure, you will lose traffic. The first thing, google adsense checks on your blog is the theme. If they find it inappropriate they will reject your blog. So, make sure you apply a good theme for your blog. You can apply free/paid themes available on WordPress.
3. Write high-quality content and Don’t Plagiarize
This is the most important factor that google adsense looks for. Producing and writing high-quality content plays a more prominent role in your blog. At least, you should write articles with a maximum of 800 words. This is my personal recommendation I would give. Even, if you don’t write articles with 800 words. It’s okay that’s not a problem. But, make sure your article provides enough information to the users on google. It’s all about high-quality content guys. If you aren’t providing enough content. Your blog doesn’t work well. Then, your blog tends to fail and hence, you will not be approved for google adsense. The minimum posts you should need is 15-20 high-quality posts on your blog before applying for adsense. But, that doesn’t mean to copy other’s site work.
Plagiarizing the content is against google adsense community guidelines. Either way, Don’t think you can copy other’s work after you got approved for google adsense. Google will always keep an eye on your blog. If you plagiarize the content, AdSense will definitely halt its services till you get rid of the information you’ve copied from other sites. So, don’t do those things.
4. Use Free-Royalty Images
Free Royalty images means Free-Copyrighted Images. It is compulsory that you should use free royalty images for your blog articles. Otherwise, Google adsense will not approve your application if you have copyrighted images or you’ve taken images from other sites without their consent. A lot of new bloggers don’t know about this. They just search the images whatever they want and take out and insert them on their articles. But, the reality is often disappointing. Do you think google will allow that? No, they will ban your site if you do that. So, make sure you use free royalty images on your articles. Personally I suggest you to check out below sites which provide you free-royalty images:
5. Are you Engaging in Malpractices or illegal Acts?
You may don’t understand what I’m talking about. Since, if you’re a beginner. Google AdSense has some program policies that you need to adhere to. If you don’t comply with them. There is no doubt you will be rejected. The Google Adsense program policies say:
Paid Traffic: There are some bloggers who buy traffic and bring them to their site for the sake of views. But as I said, google always keeps an eye on your blog. It will not tolerate if you’re committing any action that is against their community guidelines and rules. Adsense will ban your site.
Linking to unauthorized and illegal sites: Unauthorized and illegal sites means sites such as keygen, cracks, piracy movies, adult content, and related stuff. If google Adsense finds out that you are linking to their sites. They will ban you for contempt against their rules.
Invalid clicks: Some newbies and bloggers think they could earn money from ads if they encourage their friends to click on his blog ads. Apparently, Google will ban those kinds of sites.
6. Make Sure You Buy Good Host
Purchasing a hosting platform is always the biggest factor for every beginner. Even I was hesitated to buy a hosting platform at the beginning not knowing which is the best. If you don’t know what hosting is. It’s simple. A web hosting platform provides the technologies and services needed for the website to be viewed on the Internet. Website data is stored on special computers called Servers. Without Hosting and servers, you cannot create a website. Assume hosting as CPU, the computer doesn’t work without it. Just like that, Without hosting, the website cannot work and cannot be created as well.
The primary reason why hosting is important because it influences your site performance. If your site isn’t performing and loading quickly. It mainly because of your hosting platform. At least, you should need an 80% score in the loading time. You can check your site’s performance in GT Metrix or Google page speed. Google Adsense considers this point and It is one of the reasons they will reject your approval. Not only, Adsense rejection. You may lose traffic and engagement also for your site. Users will look for another article that loads fastly than yours.
8. SEO Optimized Content
Optimizing your articles and SEO always plays a key role for the success of your blog. Make sure you use targeting keyword for your article. For example :
It’s on-page SEO. If you use WordPress with Yoast SEO. You know this stuff if you’re a beginner. Some newbies may don’t know about this. It’s very important to learn about on-page and off-page SEO. But, the basic SEO is the image I put in the above. It’s called on-page SEO where you have to do stuff inside your blog. Whereas, Off-page SEO is where you have to do stuff outside of your blog. So, You make sure you target the keyword in meta descriptions, meta title, and URL as it shows in the page. In this way, google crawler boots scan your content and approve your site if you’ve optimized your articles with SEO.
Although, if you followed every point I’ve said and unluckily if you’re still getting rejected. Don’t worry !
Are you still getting rejected?
Create a New Gmail account and Try with that
I’ve rejected for google AdSense program for 8 times precisely. I’ve learned what to do for getting approved and put all my efforts to get approved for Adsense. After getting disapproved for the 8th time, I thought I should create a new Gmail account and try with that. So, I’ve created a new email and applied for google adsense again. Eventually, after 3 days I got a mail from Adsense that I’m approved for google Adsense. What more could I ask for! though, I would suggest you to create a new email after following all of my steps I’ve told you.
Keep producing quality content and Have patience
Nothing can stop you from success. All you gotta do is to keep producing high-quality articles and make your blog valuable. You could make your site worthwhile by just writing good articles with SEO. Automatically, users will land on your site and thus, you may get a chance for approval. Have patience on your blog. Google AdSense isn’t the only option you got. You have a lot of options too that you can monetize your blog as well. You don’t need to depend on solely adsense.
There are alternatives for Google Adsense which offers similar services and ads to your blog. Be sure to check out the options you can monetize your site and earn money from it :
Consequently, you will be approved for Google AdSense for 100% sure if you follow my steps. All you need to do is producing SEO optimized quality content. It’s not about traffic. Needless to say, no one gets traffic at the beginning itself. Google takes time for your post to rank in higher search results. There are some sites saying adsense could take 6 months to approve your site in certain areas like ( India and China ). But, it didn’t happen to me. I’m from India, adsense took just 3 months to approve my blog 🙂 So, don’t worry about that stuff. Perhaps, if you’re getting major traffic from Us or Uk. You may be approved earlier like me.
