Although there is many other advertizing networks exist but still, no one can beat Google AdSense in sense of profit it generates and share among the publisher or blogger.
Mentioned above are some good qualities of AdSense but the dark side of AdSense is it is hard to get. It is almost impossible to get AdSense approval at first attempt. Many bloggers try even 20 times to get AdSense approved.
Hard to get but not impossible, every blogger can get AdSense account and start making money if his or her blog comply with AdSense policy. So don’t lose your heart, read the quick checklist below to get approved AdSense account on your blog and enjoy making money the most popular advertizing network.
Here we have compiled a checklist and important requirement which you should follow before submitting your site for AdSense. First take a quick review and then explore in depth
Quick AdSense Approval Checklist:
- Write Content in AdSense Supported Languages
- Buy Top Level Domain (.com, .net, .in, .pk)
- Domain age should be older than 6 months
- A Complete Blog with No under Construction Pages
- Well Define and focused Topic
- Make Quality Contents not copy pasted
- Sufficient Numbers and Length of Post, let say 50+ articles with 500+ words
- Make Easy Navigation for site
- Have some Traffic from Organic Source r search engines
01. Write Content in AdSense Supported Languages
The first requirement to get Google AdSense approval for your blog or website is its content should be in one of the Google AdSense supported languages. Till now AdSense support 36 (local and international) languages. Check out the list of supported languages and if your blog content is written in one of these languages, you pass the first requirement to get AdSense approval. Now move to other steps.
02. Buy Top Level Domain
Forgot about yoursite.blogspot.com, yoursite.wordpress.com, yousite.co.cc etc. Those days are gone when Google approve AdSense for sub domains and now there is no more opportunity for sub domains to get AdSense approved. Nobody wants to pay for advertisement on sites which even don’t have their own custom domain.
So the only way to get AdSense approval is to be professional and buy some Top Level Domain or TLD like yoursite.com, yoursite.com.in or one with .net, .org at the end.
Quick Tip: Don’t use sub domain to wait for decent traffic to your site. Start your blogging journey from day first with a Custom domain like .com.
03. Domain age (older than 6 months)
The condition of domain age depends on the country from where you applying for AdSense. In some centuries like China, India and Pakistan, Google make policy to approve the application of those blogs or websites with domain age older than 6 month. Although in other countries, people with just few days old domain get approval but again, how a site with just few days old domain can pass the other requirements to get AdSense approval like Sufficient content, traffic and number of post.
04. A Complete Blog with No Under Construction Pages
Before applying for AdSense account, strictly ensure that your site is complete with no page or category under construction. Google reject sites with under construction pages. So all you need is a complete site or blog with sufficient number of posts or pages with no any under construction page.
Quick Tip: If your site has let say, 20 categories 15 with sufficient number of posts and 5 with only few or no post (content), remove these page or categories at first and then apply for AdSense.
05. Well Define Topic
AdSense love the site and approve them fast with focused topic or the one build on a single niche. This makes AdSense able to put relevant ads on your site according to your site topic. Having too many topic covered at same time is not a best practice.
Quick Tip: Start with a single niche or topic first and then grow your blog to cover more.
06. Make Quality Contents
Another important requirement for AdSense account approval is Fresh unique and quality contents or articles. Quality of the content matters rather than quantity. If you have only 50+ quality written articles, it is much better than 100s poorly written articles with too less or huge content. Most of the applicants fail to get Google AdSense approved because they skip this step or really don’t understand what the Unique Quality Content mean. Google love the contents which “the only one of its kind”.
Remember, these contents should not be copy pasted from other sites or blogs as Google will detect plagiarism and will reject your site for AdSense. It is not only the text but also the media (Images or video), so if you took something like Images or Videos from other sites, keep in mind that it should be labeled for reuse and give the source site Credit back.
07. Sufficient Numbers and Length of Post
Although there is no hard and fat rule for the Numbers and Length of article but still this fact is to be consider before applying for Google AdSense. Some experts suggest that there should be at least 40+ well written articles while other insists 50 or more articles before applying for AdSense. For me the more quality content the more chance of approval, so be patient and wait until your number of blog post reach 50.
How long these articles should be?
The average length (in sense of word) of these 50 articles should be 500 + words. Again, 500 words may be insufficient to cover some topics like a 101 list of something or may be too much for a Top 5’s. Thus 500 words is an average and you can go beyond or limit yourself to 500words.
08. Make Some Important Pages
What are these pages and why they are there?
Having these pages on a site show that the site is managed by humans for humans and not for AdSense only. Google AdSense love the site which focuses human readers not search engines and advertisers. Having these pages on your site will make your site more professional
So make sure before applying for Google AdSense and create:
- An “About us” Page which tells who you are and about what your site or blog is.
- A “Contact Us” page to have some way to contact you by visitors as well as advertisers.
09. Easy Navigation
Believe it or not, some of the well developed site with sufficient number of quality posts and lots of unique visitors still rejected by AdSense team due to improper Navigation. Remember Google love the sites that are made for people with easy navigation. Your site may have quality content but if it has messy design and hard to navigate through, your application may rejected by AdSense Team.
So keep this in mind and make your navigation menu simple easy and in access of your visitor from each of your blog or site page.
10. Organic Source of Traffic
Last but not least, traffic is the key to get AdSense approval and this traffic must come through organic source like search engines not the paid traffic (Google reject the sites for AdSense with Paid Traffic). Although traffic is not mandatory nor it is stated in AdSense Policy as AdSense is not concerned with number of visitors, it is more concerned with the source of traffic but still site with good traffic get approval fast.
Quick Tip: Try to build some natural and organic traffic from search engines not only through social media.
