12 Things to Do Before Applying for Google Adsense

What is Google AdSense and Why You Should Use?

Google AdSense is one of the oldest network to offer ad publishing and works at Pay Per Click system. In fact Google used to give AdSense to everyone who used to make blogs through Google Blogspot.

When it comes to the legitimacy of Google AdSense, it speaks for itself. Google AdSense have thousands and thousands of satisfied customers and publishers. AdSense pays on time, every time.

One more reason for choosing Google AdSense is that we can earn huge amounts of money if we do our work in right way. There are many bloggers who are making a complete living from their blogs and Google AdSense. Therefore, Google AdSense should be the number one choice among all the other available networks.

It’s paying rates are better than all of other networks which is the biggest reason it is so popular to all Bloggers and Webmasters. But since everybody is running behind them, they have made the approval system very strict. You make little mistakes and get disapproved every time. Here are few reasons why Google will reject your application.

Why AdSense Will Reject Your Application?

Here are the most common reasons and AdSense requirements which they gives when they reject your application.

1.  Insufficient content / Unacceptable site content — Your website do not have enough text on them for Google specialists to review.

Google gives a lot of value and attention to the content of the blog before accepting it. If the content is poorly written and have grammatical mistakes, Google will reject the blog right away.

Not only the content needs to be grammatically correct, it must be unique and has to provide value to the users and readers of the blog. So the number one reason is the poorly written content on your blog.

2. Page Type / Design of your blog — What will you do if you land a page with full bright yellow background with white text on it, having huge buttons all over the place? Yes you’ll click away.

Blogs which are poorly designed and are hard for the visitors to understand, get rejected by Google for AdSense. You MUST have a good design which comforts the eye and is beautiful in the look.

3. No Privacy Policy, About us or Contact Us page — There are some pages which you must have before applying to Google AdSense if you want to get accepted. These are About us, Privacy Policy and Contact Us pages. These pages give the impression that you are a professional and that you are working according to the Google polices.

4. Site does not comply with Google policies — No rich, unique and meaningful content, no organic traffic, pages with little to no original content or bad user experience through clear navigation and organization. Your website may be the one that drive traffic through illegal sources, site with excessive keywords or poor coded design are usually rejected.

So you need a complete guidance and list of thing that you need to do before applying for Google AdSense and supposing that you are ready.

12 Things to Do Before Applying for Google AdSense

 12 Things to Do Before Applying for Google Adsense

1. Privacy Policy :

One of the common mistakes that every bloggers and I made many times before getting approved. Even though there are people out there who say that having a privacy policy for a Blog doesn’t makes 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 it is important? Because 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).

2. About Page:

Like privacy policy you must have a about page so that you can get approved. Like privacy policy this About page also give the sense of a serious business.

An About has major role and importance 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 describes about you and your Blog . This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also make them trust upon you.

3. 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. Than it is better to give them 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 us page, if possible add your professional email there like info@yourblog.com and your social profile links too. Bcreating this you are telling Google that see we care for our customers, visitors and we are ready to help them. They can contact us any time.

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.

4. Name/ Email Verification:

When you apply don’t forget to put your Name and Email address in some easily visible area like About Me and Contact Us 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 help the Google in the verification process.

5. Age Verification:

This is the mistake that most younger blogger are making who are less than 18. They write incorrect age and get into trouble.

Use your correct date of birth and age while applying for Google AdSense account.

Because Google AdSense is not for people who are under 18. Some people realize this problem after being disproved a few times without any legitimate reason. So I advise you to be accurate while typing your age. Be honest.

6. Minimum 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 400+ posts and their owner telling me that Google AdSense is rejecting them while somewhere bloggers with 40,50 posts are enjoying making money. Exactly, what I said that there is no actual answer. However, we can always predict things. According to my experience, you should only apply after you have more than 50 posts. Posts length must be 500+ words too with quality content.

7. Design:

As mentioned earlier, you blog design matters a lot. It should be professional and not like a messy photo gallery. Clean, professional and smart design is appreciated by Google.

Your blog design is the biggest thing after Content. This represents your expertise, experience and professionalism. So be careful because anything can kill your chances of getting approved by AdSense. I recommend Elegant Themes because you get access to 87 WordPress themes in just $69.

8. Content Type:

Be careful with what type of content you are publishing. Because it is something that truly matters. Google AdSense is not for Pornographic, Illegal Items, Drugs or other Blogs / Sites like that. AdSense team won’t be willing to allow you to step in if you own a Non English Blog. Having posts shorter than 200 words in length is also Red Signal.

9. Providing Value:

Google loves the blog who are providing value in their content and their visitors and customers are enjoying that value. Be sincere with your visitors don’t ever try to scam them instead provide value.

Don’t complain about not making money and don’t clearly state that you’re blogging for money only and have no other interest in it. Because this will show them that you will not be providing values to your readers any day. Hence another Red Light glows up.

10. Top Level Domain:

12 Things to Do Before Applying for Google Adsense

Those days are gone far away when AdSense used to approve “Blogspot” and “WordPress.com” Blogs. 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 Sub domains and go buy a Top Level Domain.

When it comes to domain, your domain should be of top level. For this purpose the best domain is .com domain. Choose a short, unique and easy to remember domain related to your blog niche.

Another important thing about domain is it’s age. Because most of Asian Countries, AdSense has placed an age restriction. They don’t accept any sites which are not 6 months old.

So keep it in mind before applying for Google AdSense program.

11. Other Ad Networks:

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

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.

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

12. Paid Traffic:

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 do not accept site which gets traffic from illegal sources.

What to do if AdSense is not getting approved?

After all this what if Google AdSense does not approved you?

It’s not the end of the world! ;)

There are many other trusted and high paying ads network you can use and trust me they are not hard as Google AdSense is in terms of getting approval. One door of opportunity is closed so the other one will open.

You can use these ad networks to earn money without AdSense. They are easy to get approved.

My Final Words After Your Apply for AdSense:

This will take your few time and you have to do these things Before Applying for Google AdSense. I guess these are not too hard. Don’t be sad if Google AdSense not approve your blog.  There are many other ways to make money online without AdSense.

Hope for the best. If approved enjoy and if not enjoy other networks. One more thing, Try to make money through blog from other business model. Ads network will not give you much as other business models will like affiliate marketing and selling your own product.

  1. Hey Saqib,

    I see a lot has changed from the early days of adsense. I have a pretty old account and I can’t remember having provided any of these. It was quite easy in those days ;)

    • Man, you said it yourself..Times has changed…
      Google used to approve “Blogspot” “wordpress.com” and other free domains which is not happening any more..

      • I recently applied for adsense I don’t think all these things are necessary as me and my friends got approval just by giving the domain and we had only two articles published with no such About or Contact us Page.
        And yeah You wrote ‘An About has major role and importance 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.’
        this line needs editing friend :)

        • What you said is completely right Usama….even i got it approved without all the above points. But then we should consider ourselves lucky as there are many a people out there whose applications were rejected even they had most of the above points. Its difficult to figure out with Google sometimes. Wish good luck for all those who are applying ;)

          • Wish me luck please. I have applied and I am still waiting for it. Its been 2 weeks now. Just curious. How much does it takes to get approved? The articles and snippets are original and to the point. Accept the contact page all other pages have good contents.

            Arun

        • Usama may be you were lucky, I have decent visitors and 100+ posts but got declined twice and now I am scared to apply again. I will wait for a while before applying. By the way, this article got some really solid points about what google want from applicants. I will apply them after making changes to my site. Thank you Saqib for these tips.

      • Hi Saqib …!
        Who told you Google is not approving .blogspot.com domain

        My friend has got approval with .blogspot.com domain and

        There might be some cases where the application gets rejected due to some other reason and people assume the reason to be the Lower level domain ….

        However this is not the case…

        All You need to have is a good website following Google adsense Policies solely and that’s it…..

    • yes its true dear google not approving accounts and their policy is to much stick now. but apply above mention tips gives you better chance to get approved.

    • I have old adsense account, approx two year old. How to add with my new blog?

  2. very useful tips for a newbie like him..i was thinking to apply for the adsense but their is no privacy page on my blog and i will publish it soon and then i will go for it..thanksss

  3. This is awesome post for all new bloggers. But you did not discuss anything about blog traffic in this post. What do you think about that?

    • Believe me Traffic doesn’t ave a major role in but however it can help. The most important thing for approval is Content Quality, Quantity and Presentation..At least this is what lead me getting into Adsense.

  4. I think you have covered almost every aspect of new level blogging in this article of yours. And, it is required for applying a new Adsense account, for sure!

    I’m not sure if it is what is been counted 3 years back when I started blogging and had applied for Adsense as that time I was very new to this field and I got Adsense very easily so I think that time having a Adsense account was like 123.

    What do you say?

  5. Really Nice information @Saqib About Adsense. Saqib Bro i Have A Movie Blog Can I apply Good Adsense Please Check My Blog And Give me Suggestion That’s All Your Post is Awesome Thanks For Sharing This :)

    • You can apply for sure… Anyone can Apply… But I’d say one thing to ya’. If you got into Adsense , you’re earning are not going to be as much as you might be dreaming…

  6. Thanks Saqib For Information. Every One Must Read Before Applying To Adsense :)

  7. Thanks, I was about to apply adsense, I think I will stop and follow your tips before do anything else.
    Still have one more question… Isn’t there a legitimate way around the age? Will Google approve if someone over 18 apply on my behalf for my blog? Also, are you guys not using the ad-sense in this blog? It would be cool if you shared your metods and system. I couldn’t find any service so far that allows anyone under 18. The admin of this blog is 17. Please do share your methods, it would help the newb like me – a lot!

    :)

    • You can’t get adsense if you’re under 17. If you want someone to apply and receive money on your behalf, than might have to enter his name in about page or give some reference in a visible region of your Blog.

  8. Hari Narayan says:

    Wow, Wonderfully explained article Saqib! I don’t know how to get approved for Google Adsense, But the truth is I really Got my adsense account approved in just 2 days after creating my blog! :) Really I don’t know how!
    Thanks for sharing this article!

  9. Privacy policy is a must for a blog.
    Saqib you listed very simple but imp points :)
    Thanks for share.

  10. Hi Saqib,
    privacy policy and proper content are the must. Other things are debatable – it depends who accept your site ;)
    Thanks for sharing,
    Chris

  11. What about traffic how much page views do i need before applying to Google adsense…

    • Believe me Traffic doesn’t ave a major role in but however it can help. The most important thing for approval is Content Quality, Quantity and Presentation..At least this is what lead me getting into Adsense.

      • Dear i m running my blog from last month . i need ur guidance how can i improve my blog more for adsense ….. are they approving for blogspot.com or not ?Regards

  12. Nice tips. However i would add some like having a unique ip while on shared hosting.

  13. Great Tips, but I got adsense approval in 2 months but some people says that your domain must be 6 month old if you are from india, I dont know how they approve its totally confusing…

  14. This is a great list! I was fortunate enough that I still had my Google Adsense account from *ahem* 2006 so I didn’t have to struggle with this.

    I saw you mentioned domain age as a factor – and I think this is starting to become a bigger one now. I wouldn’t even bother attempting to apply until you hit that six month mark.

    But follow everything in this list and do your best to follow the “white hat” path and if your getting enough traffic with enough content you should get approved with no issue!

  15. Hey. My first comment after you got that “+” after your commentluv symbol down here :)

    I got mine approved with 24 posts :O Hope I don’t get any issues later on! BTW stop displaying your age. Even after you become 18, it would never be a must or useful to show your age to people. Just remember that teaching and learning has nothing to do with age.

    Regards

    PS – Why can’t I see any adsense ads here on your blog huh?

  16. Hope I get accepted, though my domain age may create sum hurdle at present…….

  17. Great tips. I don’t have a Privacy Policy page on my blog. I have applied for adsense several times till now. But every time they rejected for different reasons. Very soon I’ll add a Privacy Policy page on my blog and will apply again.

  18. It is very true that getting google adsense approval is very tough . But i think if we follow the above steps then we can get adsense easily.

  19. Hi saqib,
    I did not know that Adsense requires Privacy policy, About page and contact page to approve.
    Few months ago I wrote an article about same subjects. But I didn’t mention those requirements .
    Now I am going to update my post. Tanks for the sharing.
    Regards,
    Istiak Rayhan

  20. I have been rejected 10, 15 times, but after reading this post I gona try once again. Let see what happens.

  21. Nice tips to get approved by Google AdSense. According to me, having a top level domain and some traffic are two of the most important things which you must determine before applying for an AdSense account.

  22. Very nice Tips. This post will help new comers.

  23. I got rejected by adsense 3 or 4 times. But now I don’t need their approval :p (really, I mean it). I suggest, try to provide some services in which you are expert and make money from them. Why every one is running behind adsense ? Adsense is not everything, it is just like one more resource. If you really work good, you have lot of other resources for making money. Give them a try !
    Don’t think so much about adsense, because it can’t feed everyone by enough dollars. You can enjoy adsense income only when you have some other resources of money on your blog, otherwise you are hard morking much more as compared to adsense money. So, first try to give some valuable service to your readers, make your own income sources and then use adsense for earning some EXTRA cash.

    • Wonder full Comment… There is a saying that “Readers come first and Money comes Later” ..Totally Agreed but covered this subject because there are many Newbies and Experts who don’t understand this thing and always keep looking around for something to follow in matter of Adsense…

  24. Donna Spears says:

    I know a lot of people who are blogging who ignore putting Privacy Policy on their blogs. Yeah I know this part is really needed for a blog particularly when you wanted an adsense program.

    • Privacy Policy is not necessary for Blogs… As you can see that All Blogging Tips have no Page of this kind… I don’t have one either on Apex Blogging Tips… Privacy Policy is important only when you are about to apply for Google Adsense… Otherwise, not so important…

  25. Informative tips what to do before applying for Adsense. 3 years ago Adsense policy is very easy. But it is now more strict. So bloggers need to follow the basic rule of Adsense

  26. nice information. i did not know about this thanks for this post. I will Definitely use your point our blog really @Saqib valuable post for me :)

  27. Our mission is to provide you value…That’s what we are here to do…

  28. I agree with all the mentioned points except ‘Minimum Number of Posts’. I got Adsense account approved with 30-40 articles. And also domain age along with Traffic is a must considered factor before applying Adsense.

  29. M Mahtab Saleem says:

    Thanks to wirte about Adsense approval requirements ,
    I will facilitate my blog with all these requirements , before this i had several time rejected by adsense ,

  30. amazing article …your this article is going to solve the problem of many newbies coz they got stuck with such problems.. :)

  31. Now a days its easy to have adsones on your blog just your blog have some visitors and its should be just 6 month old I have adsones on my blogs and its not too much old have very low rate of traffic now a days earning from adsones has been changed now people earn from blog with different ways.

  32. I have been trying for adsense approval
    i think i have to add privacy policy to my blog to get it approved

    nice post thanks

  33. One of my friend got approved in just 20 post (each post was near about 100 words with lots of images) while my other friend was rejected even after 100 posts (each post was 2000+ words). Adsense is weird.

    • They say it also….Every time they send a disapproval messages, they say “sometimes very established sites are rejected”

  34. I have seen bloggers who keep complaining that Google is not approving their adsense. They must read this post because this post have clear idea that what is the exact and authentic way to have adsense.

    You have mentioned everything that a good website should have for the adsense approval.

    I think after reading the post, the adsense approval rate will increase ;)

  35. This is the best adsense implementation tips I have read so far. Also if traffic is low then it might not be a good idea not to place adsense. This will scare visitors away. I was not aware of having contact details, thanks for mentioning them.

    • Wo Wo Wo… The Best Adsense Implementation tips you ever read…I said “The Best Adsense Implementation tips you ever read”…

  36. A very complete and well-written post Saqib. Most people don’t realize that Google requires a privacy policy just for using Analytics, even if you don’t use AdSense.

  37. Thanks Saqib for this great advices , this very helpful to beginners and professionals alsoز

  38. Well I agree design and content of the blog carry a lot of importance in the eyes of Google Adsense also the blog must be able to generate over 500 visitors per day. Privacy policy should be accurate and one more thing if we apply for a high traffic blog we will earn more rather than applying for a low traffic that gains traffic after Google Adsense Approval because Adsense pushes small publishers into smart pricing.

  39. Nelson D'nero says:

    hi Saqib :)
    i really appreciate you guys work, you’re doing a great job,
    I have applied for google adsense twice and get disapproved the two times i did, So , as i get to know and read more blogs (like yours ) i got to find out that i have been disapproved before applying(i.e i don’t deserve to be approved,because i have breached many rules of them),Cuz i have got no traffic, about, contact, privacy policy e.t.c then on mp3breed.com C website,music search engine.) and imtsocial.com (smf, field wif spam post) and many others….. I decided to come real, with different idea, focus and determined by going for gidileak.com, in this site 80 percent of the articles and things you see their is not copied… So i get about 4 to 500 visitors everyday, 1.7 million world-wide ranking,about 3000 + regional/ home ranking, 9 reputation/backlinks and my blog is about a month and some days now .

    Apart from the things you mentioned about before applying for google, Do i need to change identity before applying again ?, cuz i have been officially disapproved with my real identity twice as initially said,, please check out the site and tell me what to change/do???, i will really appreciate any reply.. Thanks…

    • Hmmmm…I see..You don’t really need to change your identity at all. You are just disapproved not Banned. I was also disapproved countless time before getting in..Keep pushing and experimenting and you’d make through it…

  40. Thanks for bringing this post..But let me tell you Google is not following any fix rules what I have analysed ..I have seen worst quality blogs been accepted by Adsense team where as good quality blogs not. Another thing suppose you and me created two blogs with almost same design and articles are on technology,seo tips and other blogging tips. One will be approved and other wont..I’m telling it from personal experience.
    I have seen many top bloggers earning 6 figure income but 60% of their articles are copied from other sources..but they are enjoying their money with no hassle. So we can only follow the theory .

  41. Has anyone had recent expereince with joining adsense through Hubpages? I heard it is easier to do it from there.

  42. This is awesome post for all new bloggers. But you did not discuss anything about blog traffic and seo in this post.

    • According to Google itself, there is no certain amount of traffic that anyone need. You may get through it with 20 per day or someone may be advised by Google team to still wait even he is getting 2,000 per day.

  43. thanks for these useful tips. But i have also seen some low quality blogs getting approved by adsense. so it may depend on your luck.

    • It happens rarely…Most of times, people do some kinda blackhat tricks to get the accounts that get banned before getting the first payment.

  44. Rauf Khan says:

    Adsense approval has always been considered as a difficult task by some, because they simply don’t follow the important policies you’ve mentioned here.!

    thanks you :-)

  45. Will go to try for adsense,let’s see what happen…your tips help me a lot.thank you

  46. I got my website approved just within 10 days of formation for google adsense.

  47. Minimum Number of Posts 40-45?
    I am having only 6 post and google approved me :P

    • That was your luck..Nothing else.

      • Hello Saqib,

        May be you are right, but I am not the only.

        Actually I believe that bloggers who don’t care about it gets it easily (may be by luck) but those who knows its scope, faces more difficulties. Life is contradictory!On the other hand bloggers those who got the adsense easily usually notice its impact (and importance) when got banned (they don’t care about policies).

        Adsense is like love, those who don’t care much usually gets it and those who are serious never get it easily. Both luck and confidence plays a good role. Adsense in Asia is like Asian girl :P

  48. if i ve blogger domain(blog-spot) for 4 months then i changed it into .com domain then also i will wait 6 month for applying ad-sense Tell me please

  49. Tejindra singh rawat says:

  50. Okay guys i applied for google adsense twice and got regected.What do i do? Does google adsense accept tumblr? Please how can i be accepted with google adsense in tumblr ? Google replied to my google adsense requested and said my website doesn’t match their criteria.WHAT DO I DO TO GET GOOGLE ADSENSE ? HELP! HELP!

    • Google doesn’t care if it’s tumbler , wordpress or blogger…The only must have thing is to have a domain name and other things that are mentioned above…

  51. Okey, i have 2 adsense account and they are earning but at some point i have to delete one of my accounts to prevent from banning both… and one of my account was being used by my friend in which i keep telling him to register in Adsense Program, last week he got an account…

    He has 20+ posts only, and it is blogspot.com domain(not TLD), also i want to add, it doesnt matter if you dont have private privacy. and of course, at least, your blog/site should have constant traffics.


    still, im at 3rd cashout in my adsense. :)

  52. Thanks a lot , After waiting I finally got my Adsense account approved last week. I had purchased a domain some 6 months back and was trying for an Adsense account since then. But eveeachry time my application was declinedwith a message “Unacceptable site content”

  53. Can you help me?

    Will my site http://www.vbtutes.com be approved with Adsense. Should I apply now? Please see whether the length of my posts is ok, especially the sample programs posts as they are very short.

  54. I already applied three times but my application got rejected. I will try these steps and reapply.

  55. I dont think its true coz there was no menu links except home page in my blog. But I got adsense approved after applying. But after the year they disabled it due to unknown reason.

  56. Almost all those points laid out for approval for adsense are not valid and not necessary. To be honest with, at a time of applying for adsense on my blog, I had no privacy and my blog had less than 5 articles but my account was approved within a day. I guess the rules were different in your case.

  57. i have applied in adsense for 3 times and rejected all . . hope this time i get into ..

  58. Is it domain registrant name will effect the google adsense approval?
    I mean if the domain registrant name is different with the application name.

  61. I Was rejected by adsense even after following all the techniques mentioned here.. My domain registrant name is different.. Is that of concern?

  62. Hi, great article, some really helpful points. I’m hoping to monetize my blog soon, I’m wondering where I’d go about putting a Privacy Policy in my blog? Seems like a good idea, but I’m not sure where to put it or what to write in it. It’s a movie/games blog.

  63. Still Not getting approved for adsense, But I tried this placement with the different AD-Servers, they are giving the satisfactory Payout.
    Thanks

  64. Can i get Google Adsense Approval without buying my own Domain name?

  65. Akhilesh Kumar says:

    Hello Saqib, i had followed all these 12 steps but still adsense team reject my application (its 3rd time) can you suggest what mistake i’m doing…???
    Please check …

  66. just now i started working on my new blog for the first time. To apply for addsense is it necessary to register our blog for getting domain….?

  67. adsense approval was a lot easier before the changes made in 2012,,i remember getting my adsense account approved with 32 visitors,

  68. Very well written post. I must say that it is really helpful for the new blogger to getting a chance to approve Google adsense. Now it is very clear that most of the bloggers are suffering much trouble when they are applying adsense. But now reading this article they are not compromise their lacking i think.

  69. Google adsense is difficult to make approve for applying new account now, many reason what they said about rejected account, i have been tried 5 times and all of them rejected.I think your article can help me make approve adense account.thanks

  70. Hello saquib,

    Article is well written with all required info. but the problem is the newbies searches for this information when they already got rejected by adsense several times.

  71. Thanks for sharing.
    I’m starting a blog to make money with Google Adsense :D

  72. I have tried a couple of times to get ad-sense account but got a different reasons not be approved and the last was not enough content, i will apply again only when i have 50+ content pages on the site.

  73. Hi,

    Just dropping by… I just made my blog last December and I know for sure that it is still not acceptable by adsense. I just curious if they are also strict about images I placed on every post I made. I don’t own the images but may textual content are geniune. Please check it too. I hope you can tell me or suggest somethingI missed anyway I’m still haven’t post my About page. But I’m getting into it probably by next days.

  74. My site is less than 1 month old. I guess I have to wait more. Thanks for this.

  75. Hello saqib..,,,

    If a website is one month old and having great traffic so can it be eligible for google adsense or a person have to wait for 6 month for getting approved

  76. Great tips ! Most of the bloggers are suffering much trouble applying adsense.your this article is going to solve the problem of many newbies…..

  77. That’s weird, I got accepted into Google AdSense with no traffic and just a couple posts. Did have all the necessary pages.

    Now I cancelled my membership with bluehost though and deleted my site because I cannot do the blog and also do my homework at school because I’m not gifted at all and it takes me hours longer to understand something or memorize.

  78. Julidarma says:

    Thanks for your sharing Saqib. Some webmaster also suggest about traffic and PR. what do you thing?

  79. I currently under a partial approval how many traffic do I need to get to have a big chance of getting approve?

  80. Hey.. thanks for your kind post… my website http://www.funaims.com contain videos, games, messages etc. I am getting embeded code from other site for videos, so is it any problem in it to be approved the google account???

    • Akhilesh Kumar says:

      Dear friend Waqar, i hd chck ot ur site :/ , you must know dat Google love content sites so, if you want to monatize ur site through google adsense, u need 2 add some unique and quality content ( ! guess 30 post of 300 words each will b OK) :)

    • It is problem if videos are copyrighted.

  81. simranjeet says:

    I have a pligg based site, Can I get approval??

  82. Thanks so much for this post Saqib. I’m very much a newbie & it’s given me some great information. I’ll check out some of your blogs now too because the info was so good this time around. I found this post through a Google search. Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    Louise Bibby

  83. Wow!.This so amazing.I am just to start applying for adsense.And now here,i learned a lot.Thanks bro for helping me out.Now i gotta do some basic stuff before adsense content.True

  84. I almost lost of hope now I applied my site multiple times but still cannot get through final review. Please tell me if there was any problem with my website. Adsense did not provide specific reason why.

  85. Hey Saqib

    Thank you so much bhai
    I read your article and after making all the adjustment like you said.

    I got google adsense approved

    Thanks :)

  86. I think you are looking at this incorrectly. Last Wednesday, I decided to add Google adsense to my site. I read about it (for the first time) and applied. I had the approval within 24 hours. I added the code to my site and 24 hours later, so Friday night, I had them appear. I had been fully approved.
    Perhaps, you are loking at this from a bloggers point-of-view. I proper website obviously get easy and quick approval.

    • I’m looking at it from the point of view that I should…I cannot tell everyone to do something if it goes good for me only…As blogger, I have to analyze a lot of things and ask many people before making a last call….You’re lucky to get account.

  87. I got approve my AdSense just for 40 post. Adsense will check your website quality that their advertiser would be profited from that or not. So this is very hard to say about minimum post requirement.

    Once you think that your website is ready for AdSense then you may apply.

  88. Hello Saqib,

    Getting irritated with google adsense, I applied two times and same rejected. What i have to improve on my blog. My blog age 5 months and total visitors 350 up to now. I have to wait still more months.

    Need Suggestions……..

  89. Hii,

    First of all I must say, thanks for submitting these wonderful tips for getting approval in ad sense in a proper way.

    You covered almost all the points with nice explanation. I already got the approval in Google ad sense. Would like to share how I got the approval.

    Good Custom Design, I wrote it only 3 High Quality arts, Aged Domain (It’s 7 months old)

    Just wanted to ask one question.

    1) Can I use multiple accounts and even operating from same Laptop/ computer?

    Waiting for your prompt reply.

    Thanks

  90. Thank for this, I really need this to be approve on adsense coz everytime I try I always get rejected.

  91. Dipankar Mondal says:

    I have enjoyed your post really. If our content is really made for readers and if we should follow this tips properly before apply for AdSense then it will be more easy to get approve fro AdSense.

  92. Second point that you had made is not true as i applied after 32 posts and i got AdSense approved for my blog and its only 2 months old. Thing that matters is whether you are posting unique content and traffic from Google Search.

  93. Can you check design of my blog and let me know that it is good or should i change because all other factors are fine. Thank you

  94. What an amazing article. All the point which you have covered are true. Perhaps i was a victim for not getting approval of google adsense account for almost 1 year. But after re-applying so many times finally google gave the adsense account. Nice article…

  95. hey i am approved by adsense but i m just getting 0.9$ per click it is not increasing it it due to my domain?????

  96. Many Newbie Bloggers without knowing this, after they get their account disabled. They keep on applying, which Google hates ! They must leave a gap of at least 6 months. No one are aware of this. Anyway, Terrific Post. Thanks :)

  97. for Indian and other asian users domain age also matters. The domain should be 6 months old to get approved by google adsense program

  98. If you are going to apply for Google Adsense make sure you site must have some additional pages like About page, Contact page, Archive page, Sitemap page, Privacy Policy page, Disclaimer page and Terms of Use page. Having these page in a blog/website tell what is your blog about, how it is useful for.

  99. Nyc work done by you on this post. Funny as well as interesting… Actually, me gonna apply for adsense and m searching precautions needed before applying adsense.

  100. Saqib,

    I am very interested in continuing my blog, but I would love to get into adsense. I have completed everything you posted on here and have been updating my blog and getting decent and increasing traffic. Can you (or any other readers) possibly tell me what I’m doing that is keeping me out of Adsense?

  101. Hi,
    Indeed it is very useful for me.

    I applied for google adsense with 10 post. But they rejected because of insufficient blogs. Now I am writing blogs. Please check my blog and advice me. I explained theory with youtube video. Please advise me.

    Thanks

  102. hi saquib ,
    i have a doubt here if we create content on different niche is it a problem for us or we can create content on different niche
    PLease tell me its very important for me
    thank you :)

  103. Got all your points. Adsense is being to harsh on bloggers these days :-(

  104. Thank you for this great advice. I am new to blogging but I intend to add content on a regular basis. I have a blogspot blog and I just wondered if you could explain further about purchasing your own domain to get approval for Google Adsense. Is your own domain basically like your own website and then you need to link to your blog separately? Sorry I’m new to all this!

  105. Aliakbar Fakhri says:

    I got Apprved last week, But I am getting very less payout, I have 4000+ daily traffic and some day i get 10+$ and some day only 4$
    Why this? Do i need to do some settings in Ad Servers???

  106. Sir my website is 35 days old infolinks are active on it so can i apply for adsense with infolinks or not ?
    Please suggest me should i apply now or add more of content before All about Jobs & Interviews

  107. Nice tips dude !

    Kindly tell me one thing. I have started a new blog on wordpress with a premium theme and have written some unique, original & SEO articles. My blog is only 1 or 2 months old. Is there any chance of adsense approval if I apply now?

    Guys, give only practical answers.
    Thanks

  108. thanks to author … Hurry by following this simple tips i got adsence approved.
    More details of this on few days back (40 days before) i seen this post in some where and read fully . After reading this i got some interest to read related 2 articals. Finally i got an idea when we have to apply for adsence and what to do when google say no via reply. Finally by following the all guidelines i got approved. Thanks to author

  109. This is a life saver article. I had been blogging since 1.5 years. I hadn’t still made any privacy policy or about page. I rectified the errors and voila I was approved :D

  110. So I am screwed?
    Because i don’t have money to buy a domain name
    And I will never have money to sign up for Google adsense?

    Although i should admit, this was really really helpful. :)

    And now i should stop dreaming about earning money or anything.
    Every other post i read sugar-coated this and made it seem like it would be so easy.
    Thankyou for the truth. :)

  111. Hi! thanks alot for this post its very helpful for aspiring bloggers like us ;) just a question, i currently am running under a free webhost (blogspot) right now but i intend to have a paid domain and link it up to our blogger. willthat reset the age of our site or will the actual active age of the blog be considered? mind to also heck out our site for more suggestions?:) thaaaanks! :D

  112. Bleacher says:

    Hi Saqib,
    My first time here and found your post really interesting. I have my own paid website and been writing for about 10 months with about 300 articles in it on different categories that interest me. I applied for ad sense several times already but denied each time for not following “ad sense policy guidelines.”

    I was recently advised by a Google ad sense support member in one of the forums to take out all the images I posted that came from the internet. I’m meaning to follow the advise actually and will take all the pictures out that came from internet sources. But do I have to really do this? You did not mention in your post that the images should be personally owned and not taken from the internet. Do you own the Google image that you posted here? if I may cordially ask? I normally get pictures from royalty free and free sites offering images.

    I ask this because I can see many websites posting the same pictures and images from the internet.

    Also, I was advised to take down all articles that did not come from my own original thoughts. This I think is too much since most of the articles that we read online are re-written and basically the same topic presented in the authors own thoughts. Apparently, the article should truly be original and without any means of comparison with other online topics.

    I really would like your input on these issues about my site. If you have the time to spare, I would gladly appreciate your inputs.

    Thanks and more power.

  113. Shashank Bhattarai says:

    I have around 17 posts and many are 1000 words long should i apply for adsense or i could use other monetizing programs like Info links please give me suggestion i am just beginners blogger

  114. Ad-sense is cool
    But i dont earn much from it :( Therefore i am trying to get into nuysellads

  116. I tried many times gor Adsense, but failed to get approval, might be the content on my blog has something to do with OR a free domain OR the geaography, but it never worked. Never mind, i started using Chitika, Infolink, and affiliate products, and they all combindly started giving the results :)

  117. Thanks a lot. I have applied for adsense. And your information was really helpful. :)

  118. hello!!
    you perform a very good post, can you help me for a problem, I just want to know that. can I generate income from a blog who contain only images ?

    please help!

    • Hello Sujeet kumar! You can earn money from your blogs images ads by just signing up for luminate ads. The ads will be shown on all images of your site. The link is http://www.luminate.com
      You can also see more than 200 advertising networks at betterwebads.com.
      I hope i have answered your question.

  119. This article is great! I getting problems with applying to google ad sense, too. Tried 2 times and now i will stop, especially after reading this. 90% of mine posts are below 300 words, damn. I have only few (maybe 10) above 300 words. Now, my question is can i continue to posting without deleting old, but with 300+ words, or i need to delete them ?

    Also, got to add about me page and privacy policy, too, but i think main reason i because of mine short posts. If you wanna visit my site, visit it via my name to check it out, and please if you have any suggestion, let me know… Thanks once again for this great article!!! My full support!

  120. Hi Saqib,

    really pleased to see your post, very explained about all aspects of adsense, I will highly recommend this post to people new to adsense. however they block accounts and never release it again whatever you do, is there any method to recover account?

    thanks,

  121. Cathy Sirvatka says:

    I really appreciate this article! I was missing a lot of the items you talked about and I surprised myself since I am a web designer!! But I still probably don’t have enough blog articles. I just wish Google would give reasonable reasons why you are turned down. I was told insufficient content. So I asked what that meant. Well… you need original content. What? I write all my own content. Well… you shouldn’t probably go for adsense anyway because you will just get competitor ads and will lose business. I was really surprised by these responses. I will be starting a new tutorial blog with vids, podcasts and blog articles and perhaps I will try again later with that site. If you get a chance and can look at my site, I wouldn’t mind any feedback you may have! I tried to do everything you suggested – I just need more blog posts.

  122. Getting into Adsense is really difficult. I’ve tried three times now, and it says I have insufficient content. Is there a guideline as to say you need to be active for so many months or have like 50 posts before applying? And is it really true when you say I have to have a .com domain, and not a blogspot.com one to qualify, because they never specified that in my email declining me.

    BTW, I have about 43 posts, and have only had my blogger acc for about 3 weeks, but there is a lot of content and a few extra pages.

  123. Wow, really helpful article. I read lots today and your one was one of the most helpful ones. I have definitely learned something and I’m hoping I will get accepted soon. Just a quick question, you said you made a few mistakes before getting accepted into Adsense and just out of curiosity how many time did you get rejected before actually getting their approval ? Thank you :)

  124. As salam alikum
    I want to apply for Google Adsense. I am going to upgrade my blog from sub domain by paying $99 to http://www.blog.com. But I am not sure whether http://www.blog.com allows Google adsense to place ads. I have read on WordPress that they do not allow Google Adsense Ads to all.

    Suggest me whether making a new website is good option or upgrading my blog by paying $99 dollars.

    Jazakallah Khair

  125. Hello Ammar, I have a doubt. I will like to ask here. As we have to use Privacy Policy for adsense approval on our sites, there are lots of privacy policy generator present online. Will it not be copied content to use those policy generators? As they generates the same policy by just editing domain name.

  126. Hey bro can you please tell will Google Adsense approve me or not ,mine blog : http://techstap.blogspot.com/
    Also my date of birth on Google account is 26-October-1996.
    If Google will not approve wat can i do den ? Pls help bro !!! Thanks

    • Gamescay says:

      Thanks this post was so informative.Does Google approve blogspot sites ? and i also have one more doubt how to change the age in google adsense ? i am also facing that age restriction.

  127. Thanks so much for the advice! Unfortunately, I’ve also read people opinions that say that Adsense is a scam and that if you give your Social Security Network number, it will shortly deactivate your AdSense account and withdraw all earnings from you…. I don’t know if it’s true, but I just hope that Google is trusted.

  128. Hi, Ammar. Thank you for sharing this post. I am about to apply for adsense and will consider the tips you have laid out here. By the way, will the domain name affects my application. As you can tell I have a domain that ends with dot me instead of the usual dot com. Would that be an issue? Thank you so much for your help.

  129. Hello Ammar, Thanks For This Great Informative Content. I have a pr2 Social Bookmarking Site that i have built with Pligg. previously i was applied for google adsense but in response they said contact address invalid. but my contact address correct. What to do now to get approved?

  130. HI

    Before I apply can I know this thinks.

    Can I use a free premium template on my blog to apply for adsense?

    I came to know from some group it is not allowed. If I apply to adsence with that premium template adsense will not accept me?

    Also I want know can’t I put some software direct download link on my blog? Is it not allowed in adsense? But I have seen some other blogs they are put direct download links with adsense ads.

    Is my domain must 6 months old to apply for adsense?

    Please help me.

  131. Well tips i read this post before applying and i follow this steps i got approved from google adsense . i came here to say thank you for useful information to bloggers

  134. Great tip! Saqib, it was good to read this post and know your experienced knowledge on getting AdSense or a weak substitute approved.
    Please keep writing and let us know more on AdSense.
    Well, can you or anyone tell me what should be the “minimum” pageviews count before we apply for Google AdSense program? I know, there is nothing like pageviews or number of posts has been mentioned by AdSense team anywhere, but still I am looking for some suggestions from AdSense publishers. (Please let me know two things; minimum daily pageviews and minimum no. of posts)

    (Views and replies from anyone is welcome) — regards, ME :)

  135. I am sorry to say that I am not able to see the post. Just what I see first is author bio.

    Any solution?

  136. I got rejected by adsense several times..i read somewhere that if you have copied some images from Google image Search then Google will disapprove your application stating “Sites Does not Comply With AdSense Policies”.
    I want to confirm that can this be the reason for disapproval of application??

  137. Hi Saqib,

    Thanks for the informative post. Glad that my blog meets most of the points that you have mentioned. Out of the blue I just clicked and applied for Google Adsense and Lo! I was surprised to have my first approval to incorporate my Ad code on the Website. Hope to see the Ads soon.

  138. As i am a fresher to this seo i got many useful tips to start a new business easily..
    I will bookmark this and forward to those who dont know the basical things .. ThanQ very much…

  139. Very nice information but i have a small problem at last time i followed this tricks i got adsence approved but now this time its not allowing me with the different payee name. What to do now ?? is there any other UPDATED way to get approved ??
    Thanks in Advance

  140. Crismon says:

    Hi saqib,

    This information is what I’m looking for. I have less than 20 posts on my website but I am planning to apply when it has more than 100. Do you think it would affect my application If lets say 10 out of 100 post has less than 300 words? You mention it being on Red Signal so i just wanted to be careful.

    Thanks again.

  141. Wow that is a good piece of information! I thought I could just apply with my blogspot adress (Blogger encourage us to do it, do they not?). Anyway, I can expect my application to be rejected now, I’ll now how to have more chance next time!

  142. Google is bad boy, “they hates sites that are getting Paid traffic” what about with they “Google adwords?” (paid traffic too!).

    The giant speak giant language or the big eat the small. They are outlaw company

    • Inba there is lots of people who abuse google ads but you can get it.There is some tricks to get it cause I visited lots of site which was copy content but they have google ads.If you get that tricks so you can earn better income…

      • Yes. You are right. For some websites who wrote unique articles they got rejected several times and who wrote copied content are got approved very easily. We can’t find what’s the exact thing wrong in our site, as their(google’s) reason to reject is not clear. Every time they sends the same reason “Your site doesn’t comply with our policies”. So not easy to figure out the issue.

  143. Hi

    Thank you very much for your tips. My blog is coding-issues.blogspot.com. I have applied to adsense several times and got rejected. I don’t have a privacy policy page and i will defenitely add it now after reading your post. But please check my blog once and tell me what are the other changes to do. Thanks in advance

    • use infolink ads it is better then clicksor and submit your site to alexa it would help you…
      And I want to ask amaar you dont use any ads program so how you afford website expenses??

      • I think he is not free yet to reply because he got tons of things to do on daily basis. I know and I know why he doesn’t use Google Adsense. But the answer to your question is that Ammar is affiliate marketer. He not only affords this blog but also takes bunch of profit.

  144. Hi,
    Your article is quite thorough in all the aspects. Actually, my blog is quite new and I think it will still take me some time to apply for Google Adsense. But whenever I do, your article will definitely help me lot.
    Thanks for the great post.

  145. Karan oberoi says:

    Hi Saqib,
    I have earlier applied for the adsense and it got rejected and the reason was its does not comply with google policy and dont know what is the main reason can u please help me ??

  146. bro in step 4. Name/ Email Verification i am adding my name but add email but how to hiddin this because i cant show my visitor my email…because it is a danger and hack my site….how to solve this

  147. Hi Saqib,

    These information is very useful. Before i always try to apply at adsense on my new sites and not considering some factors for their approval. Then i read this now i know why all those my applications on the adsense were not approve.
    But showing your email at the about or contact pages is very dangerous specially for people who will take advantage for it.
    All in all i love the topic.

    regards,
    Jessie Caturan

  148. Hi Saqib,

    I have read your post and it is really awesome. I have tried many times in Google Adsense but, every time it says, “Google Policy not mached”! I created About, Contact Us pages but, I can’t get approval in google adsense.
    What should I do now?
    Thanks.

  149. sir ,, i always enjoy your posts/articles.,, its now my time to apply for the google adsense,,plz have a check over my website and tell me if there is any point that i need to correct ,,,
    thank you
    kushal

  150. Hi Saquib !
    Thank you for your excellent guidance. We have to more focus for original and high quality content with more posts. Google Adsense is all about Policy and it always works on behalf of advertiser rather than ads publishers. therefore, we have to focus our blogging and making money through organic ways.

  151. Ammar,
    i didint notice the link above ” Difference Between Short Length Post Vs Length Posts – What’s Best? ” Its done well? I cannot click on – Read. Maybe this will help You, cheers!

  152. Neha Dobriyal says:

    Hello Saqib I’m currently building a forum, I want to monetize it through Google Adsense, do they approve forums???

    • Hello Neha,
      Of course they do approve forums without any problems. Just make sure you are not violating any terms of service. Like posting illegal stuff or non-family content. Read Google Adsense TOS for more help about such stuff.

  153. I got 2 times disapproved and this is my third try , Google has gone crazy, i don\’t know what was the problem with me , so lets hope for the best this time following your guidelines. Thanks for the share.

  159. Hi Saqib,

    First of all, thanks for putting together this information. I’m currently using a personal adsense account for a news site and a travel blog. Since I’ve registered a company now, I want to apply for a new adsense account against the company. Are you aware of any Google Adsense policies for such issues?

    Thanks.

    • I think you should use the same account for your company. This is because it is very easy and simple to see which sites made you what hence, you can later divide the money between your colleagues and yourself.

  164. Shall I also remove infolinks from my blog before applying google adsense?

  165. I applied to Adsense a week
    Ago and have not heard anything. Just a red bar that says my account is under review. Is there a way to contact them to see what’s going on. I am thinking maybe I filled out something wrong in the application.

  166. Me and my friend both got approval from Google AdSense within 6 months both of us are from India, mine in 35 days (you may remember). So I think you should write that those “should” be 6 months older to get Google Adsense account, not must :D.

  167. I have applied for Google adsense i have not receive any mail from Google regarding first step or second step, red alert disappeared from my adsense account but ads are not showing on my blog
    have any idea where is the problem?

  168. Hi Razzaq,
    Let me tell you one thing, Google sometimes approves AdSense application even though the blog is live for less than 6 months. The thing is it’s difficult to analyze Google strategy, some very good and high pageview blogs are getting rejected while some blogs having no proper content are getting approved. It’s like a game :)

    Anyway I covered 11 tips to get your AdSense account approved in my new blog that helped me get my AdSense account approved. You may check adds in my blog !

  169. You don’t have to have the Contact us and About page on your website. I have seen many websites with Adsense that don’t have these two pages. Even mine.

  170. Nice article bro, recently got my adsense account approved by the Google team through YouTube. Just want to ask you a simple question that can i use this youtube approved account for another website.

  171. Nitin Maheta says:

    One of my friend followed all the steps you mentioned for approving adsense and also tried some of other tricks but it doesn’t works for his blog. You can check his blog at seebeetee.com . what should he do to get approved adsense account.?

    Waiting for an answer from your side.

    Thanks :)

  172. Thanks buddy,
    This post is really worth reading. Every blogger need to know about the Google policies before they apply to Google AdSense. As it is the greater medium to make money from a blog. I have seen many blogs which are famous but not having AdSense ads. May be they didn’t follow the policies. It’s the main problem of newbies that they always think about making money which somehow distract them from their quality building blog. Thanks for sharing.

  173. How do you get approved for Adsense when your blog is located as a subdirectory of the domain you own? For instance, my site http://www.jenwoodhouse.com is my main site, but I don’t want to run Adsense on that site. I want to include it on my blog, which is located at jenwoodhouse.com/blog. I still own the domain, but Adsense will only accept the master domain name.
    My main site was not approved for Adsense, however I think my blog would be because it seems to meet all the requirements (except the URL), but can’t submit it because according to Adsense rules, the URL is invalid.
    Any ideas?

    • Ammar Ali says:

      I don’t think so there would be anyway to approve using the sub directory. You can’t even use sub domain too.

      You’ve to use your main domain while applying for adsense, Jen.

  174. Nice said saqib,
    Without Google adsense blog is incomplete,Also one main reason for disapproval of adsense is use same Gmail account which is use for experiments or other link building games.
    Just make new real Gmail account and apply first for the Google webmaster tools and then for Google analyticals tools if your visitor is more the 60 then apply for Google Adsense.

  175. Hi saqib,
    Well Said, but i would also like add few more things to consider when applying for adsense account:

    If you’ve more then one site, then consider applying with best site. (In terms of traffic, Page Rank and content quality)
    Your content should be written in English or other Adsense supported languages.
    Give your actual information while applying for Adsense account.
    Your age must be 18 years or above to participate in Adsense Program.(or you may use your parents name)
    Sometimes Google requires 6 months older domain in certain countries including China & India.
    Avoid Paid Traffic. (Adsense doesn’t require a lot of traffic)
    Don’t use copyrighted image, Use Images with Credits.(this is not that much necessary)

  176. My adsense request got approved in my 2nd chance. But after reading your blog, i am bit confused.

    You said domain has to be 6 month old. my domain in 3 months old
    you said on average i need to have 70 + post. But i have only 23.

    How come this exception happen. Neither i am a professional blogger nor i know much about SEO. Your feedback will be highly appriciated
