I know many of you want to make some good money with Adsense right?
But it’s not easy to get into AdSense program nowadays. You have to do few things before applying for Adsense.
Google Adsense is world’s largest Ads Network and works at Pay Per Click system. It’s paying rates are better than all of other networks which are 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. 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
2. About Page
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 you and your Blog . This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also make them trust 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. Then it is better to give them the 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.
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
Make sure to put you 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.
5. Age Verification
I’m really laughing out typing this.
Because this is where I encountered a problem. Instead of 18, I accidentally published my age as 17 while on Adsense Application Form, it was accurately 18.
Hence, there started a problem . Because Google Adsense is not for under 18 people. I realized this problem after being disproved a few times without any legitimate reason. So I advise you to be accurate while typing your age.
6. Minimum Number of Posts
There is no exact 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 ,people 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 70 posts. Posts length should be 500+ words too.
Your Blog is the biggest thing after Content. This represents your expertise ,experience, and Professionalism. So be careful because anything can kill your Chances.
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. Also, Adsense team won’t be willing to allow you to step in if you own a NonEnglish Blog. Having posts shorter than 300 words in length is also Red Signal.
9. Providing Value
Don’t complain about not making money and don’t clearly state that your are 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
Those 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 Subdomains and go buy a Top Level Domain.
Another important thing about the domain is its age. Because for most of Asian Countries, Adsense has placed an age restriction. They don’t accept any sites before they are 6 months old.
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.
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 Adsense Approval letter 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.
