Follow helpful tips before applying for AdSense

Now I’m telling you exactly, what to do before applying for Google AdSense.

So, without any further ado, get ready to learn about the best tips that will increase your chances of getting approved for AdSense.

The following points are really important if you want to get approved by AdSense:

[Back to Top]

1. Improve site design

The design of your site matters a lot. It should be minimal and should not use garish colors.

Your site design plays a significant role in getting attention from the site visitors. Google has always appreciated a clean, professional, and fast-loading site.

The following things can make your site perfect:

  1. Create a professional and minimalist site design
  2. Don’t use any bloated or messy theme
  3. Your site navigation should be easy to navigate
  4. It should be search engine friendly and work fine on both desktop and mobile devices
  5. Your site should be fast loading

2. Come up with the right niche

Sometimes people are stuck with the wrong niche, and even after putting in a lot of effort, they only get to fail.

So always choose your blog niche carefully. If you know your niche well, then it becomes profitable.

There are a lot of topics to choose from, like lifestyle, health & beauty, finance, and entertainment, etc. They get more traffic from search engines and have the highest CPC rates.

3. Write unique content

Your content is the key to success.

“Content is always king”.

If you write high-quality and informative content, it will increase your chances of getting approved by AdSense.

You can make decent money from Google AdSense by creating content with relevant keywords.

Adsense works best if your site is focused on content with targeted keywords that improve your CPC.

[Back to Top]

4. Avoid copying

Copying content from other sites will spoil all of your hard work. You must have your own content to be approved by AdSense.

Using copyrighted images and text from other sites on your blog or web pages will not get you Google AdSense approval.

The quality of your content plays a vital role in your blog’s success and user attention.

So be serious about the content of your blog.

5. Create important pages

Before applying for AdSense, you must create important pages, like About, Contact, Privacy Policy, etc.

These pages have a significant role in your site.

The About page describes you and your site, while a Contact page is the best place for users to share their opinions.

On your Privacy Policy page, users know their rights and what data you collect from them, and why.

[Back to Top]

6. Increase site traffic

By posting quality content regularly, you can increase your site traffic and page views. The more posts you have, the more traffic you will get.

Although, for getting Adsense approval, visitors are not a factor.

But without increasing your page views and site traffic, you will not be able to make much money from Google AdSense.

7. Avoid AdSense-prohibited content

AdSense does not allow content that:

  • Intellectual property abuse
  • Dangerous or derogatory content
  • Animal cruelty
  • Misrepresentative content
  • Sexually explicit content
  • Drug alcohol-related contents
  • Hacking cracking contents
  • Weapons-related content and other illegal content
  • Manipulated media

Here, I have listed some of the points, but you can get in-depth details by going through Google Publisher Policies.

8. Remove other Ad Networks

Although Google AdSense allows you to use other ad networks along with them, it would be best to remove the ads before applying.

If you have any other ads placed like Media.net, PropellerAds, Infolinks, Taboola, or anything, it’s time to keep them off.

Therefore, be sure to remove all ads on your site from any other network before signing up for your application for Google AdSense.

9. Check your traffic sources

To be approved by AdSense, please ensure that you’re not receiving traffic from certain sources, such as pay-for-click programs, unsolicited email, or display ads from automated software applications.

Google doesn’t like sites that are bringing paid traffic. So there is no chance of getting approved by AdSense for a site receiving paid traffic.

It does not allow third-party services that generate clicks or impressions, such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, auto-surf, and click-exchange programs. So it is better to bring organic traffic to your site.

10. Analyze again

Please re-analyze your eligibility once you have met all the criteria before signing up for your AdSense approval application.

It will give you a chance to remove any error you make.

Common AdSense rejection reasons but not limited

In many cases, sites are rejected by AdSense. The reasons may vary for rejection, but here I’m showing you a few points which may be the issues for rejection.

These issues are most common but are not limited. So be careful to check this out.

[Back to Top]

You’re trying for a second account

AdSense program policies allow only one account per publisher. If you are trying to get approved for another account, they will be rejected your application.

In that case, you’ll need to close your old account and sign in to AdSense and confirm that it’s closed. After that, they will proceed with activating your AdSense account.

[Back to Top]

Insufficient site content

This can be another reason for AdSense disapproval.

Before applying for the AdSense program, please be sure your site has enough content. Sites that do not have enough content or appear to be under construction are not eligible for the Google AdSense program.

[Back to Top]

Content quality issue

Google likes original content. In that case, if you are using copied content on your site so that will be a reason for rejection.

You need to write original, rich content that is valuable to users. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site.

[Back to Top]

Content policy violations

Google does not allow content like adult, abusive, illegal, manipulated media, malware, crack & hack, etc.

So before applying for AdSense, please review your site carefully.

[Back to Top]

Site layout and navigation issues

If your site layout is not proper and without clear navigation, you may face rejection.

Broken links, restricted access to pages, redirects, and under-construction pages are common issues.

In that case, you need to make proper navigation for your users so that they can click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking.

[Back to Top]

Issues with your traffic sources

This is also another reason for the Google AdSense rejection.

If you are involved in bringing some kind of traffic, such as paid-to-click programs or bot-generated traffic, then you may face rejection.

In this situation, avoid bringing this type of traffic to your site.

So these are some common issues of rejection. You can also check AdSense-supported languages to verify whether your site is eligible or not to be approved.
