How to Get Approved For Google Adsense

how to get approved for google adsense

We all know Google AdSense is one of the best ad networks to monetize our blog. A lot of people and bloggers prefer Adsense for monetizing. It is because of the reason it provides the highest CTR which you cannot find in any other ad network. Every blogger wants to be successful financially earning a rich amount of money from their blogs. 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 following the rules.

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, our blog has to comply with the google adsense requirements and regulations. Google crawler bot checks all our content and it decides whether if our blog is worthy enough to provide adsense 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 with SEO. You will be approved. But, If you’re writing any illegal 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’ve 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 “

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. Despite, 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 choose 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 customized well. 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 nice theme which shows content in a good way. 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 is prominent for your blog. At least, you should write articles with a maximum of 1000 words. This is my personal recommendation I would give. Even, if you don’t write articles with 1000 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. Content is like the CPU of your blog. If you aren’t writing the content well. Your blog doesn’t work well. Though your blog tends to fail and hence, you will not be approved for google adsense. At least, you should have 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 permission. 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. I suggest you to check out below sites which provide you free-copyrighted 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 earning bucks. 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 which hosting platform is best for blogging. 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.

How to Create a Blog successfully with Good Host

However, hosting impacts your site performance. If your site isn’t performing and loading quickly. It mainly because of your hosting platform. At least, you should have 80% score in the performance of your site. 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.

7. Contact, About, Privacy Policy pages are Mandatory

Google claimed that bloggers should create contact, about, and privacy policy pages. This way, users can able to contact through the contact page and visitors could able to know about you. Even, Google Adsense checks all that information if you’re really valid or invalid. In the same way, the privacy policy page is compulsory along with these pages. If you don’t know how to create a privacy policy terms. Then, you can use this free tool like Privacy Policy Generator. So, adsense would believe that your site isn’t a fraud. I did the same and I eventually got approved for Google Adsense

8. SEO Optimized Content

Optimizing your articles and site always plays a key role for the success of your blog. Make sure you use targeting keyword for your article. For example :

on-page seo MOZ
credits: moz.com

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 on your blog. 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. Though, google crawler boots scan your content and approve your site if you’ve optimized your articles with SEO.

I’ve rejected for google AdSense program for 8 times precisely. I 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! regardless, I would suggest you to create a new email after following all of my steps I’ve told you.

  1. Google Adsense is definitely the preferred ad network before you’re able to qualify for a premium ad network! That being said, there is one mistake that I see A LOT of bloggers make – when creating that high quality content, DON’T rely on just doing roundups. While that’s a great way to network with other bloggers and roundups certainly have their place, having too many roundups and not enough of your own unique posts can turn ad networks like Google Adsense off of your site.

  2. Thank you, that was really useful for me. I will have to add a Privacy Policy page before applying. Is there a minimum amount of traffic you need to be approved? Also, all the images on my blog are from Google but ‘labelled for commercial reuse’. Are those images okay?

    1. Yea ! There’s no such thing about minimum traffic. As i said in the article, it’s all about content. Needless to say, you can use google images and give them credits at the bottom. But, i still recommend using free royalty images to avoid risks. πŸ™‚

  3. It’s all great advice.
    One thing to note is at the moment, Google Adsense is rejecting application due to COVID as they have difficulty processing them.
    It happens for our current blog as it is on a new account, if that happens you just need to wait a few days/weeks to resubmit it!

    Thank you

  4. I am new to blogging and I had no idea what I was doing. I applied for Google Adsense and got rejected so I tried to fix it based on their suggestions (disclosure page and domain issue) and eventually they accepted me. I still don’t know what I’m doing but somehow I got in. This was very helpful information. Thanks!

  5. This came just at the right time. I was looking for a post that could explain everything about Adsense clearly. You have nailed it. Thanks for sharing. Added to favorites. Will return.
