Google Adsense is the highest paying advertisement network of this planet and that is why most of the publishers uses it to monetize their web pages.You need to have an approved Adsense account, after that you can place its ads in your website, which will help you to earn from Google.It pays on impressions and clicks of their ads in your website. But, not all of us can Adsense account approved easily.
Note : I have written many Adsense Approval tips in this article, if you use them, you can definitely get your Adsense account approved. Don`t scroll down only, read each and every point carefully.
Why getting an Adsense account approved is not easy in some countries.
In 2009, people of the southern Asian countries started clicking on their own ads to get more from Google When Google saw this report, they immediately reacted, as they don`t wanted to break the trust of advertisers, who had invested millions on Adwords. They made their policies strict, so that only high quality website will show their ads. After this change, people of Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, etc. have to struggle a lot to get an approved Adsense account.
What are the Requirements to get An approved Adsense Account
As I mentioned above, Google changed their polices after the report of fraud clicks. Before the change, anyone could get Adsesne approved from a low-traffic sub domain based website, but now things are changed. Here are the requirements for getting an adsense account approved.
- Your Blog/site should get at least 50-100 visitors/day
- Your Blog/site should have at least 20 posts/pages
- Your Blog/site should be at least six month old
- Your Blog/site should have quality content
- Your Blog/site should get some organic traffic (traffic from search engines)
- Your Blog/site should not have content copied from somewhere
- Your Blog/site should have a nice and easy to navigate design
- Your Blog/site should not have any adult content
These are the minimum requirements for becoming a Google publisher, but are they 100% accurate? NO !
How To Get Approved For Adsense Fast? (How I got My Adsense approved)
Something about me : I started blogging in early 2011 and at that time, I did not know about plagiarism. So, I started copying and pasting other`s contents to my blog. When I came to know that Google hates copied content, I started a new blog (free software and games), which became very popular and received high organic traffic, But I did not know that Pirated soft wares, games and hacking tricks are not allowed.
So, I closed that blog and started a new one, which got disapproved by Google due to low traffic and low quality. After that, I tried hundreds of techniques, but could not succeed.So, I decided to quit blogging from that time.
After a year, in October 2012, I entered a domain name and webhosting Giveaway and won it. This happening encouraged me to start blogging again, So I started Technology Dip at the end of October.
After one month and 21 days of my website, I applied for adsense and got it approved within 3 days !But, my website did not meet all the minimum requirements at the time of applying, like minimum domain age of six months. Lets see the things, which I have done to get my Adsesne approved.
Traffic: I was getting only 10-20 visitors at the time of applying, but after applying, I immediately started bookmarking and asking people to visit my site.At that day, I got 100 visitors to my site, according to analytics (174, according to jet pack). Approximately 20 % of my traffic was organic at that time.
Posts: I had 30 posts at the time of applying.
Quality: I had some Hq and Mq contents.
Pages: At the time of applying, I had Six pages
Website Layout: I used News theme, which works on genesis framework. It is the simplest and the best theme, I found over the web.
Other Ad networks: Before applying, I was using Yahoo ! and Bing Contextual network, but I removed the ad codes and then applied my site for approval. I were using infolinks at the time of applying.
So, here are the things, you have to keep in mind
1.Make sure that you have at least 25 quality posts
There are some, who got it approved with thirty articles.
There are also some, who got it disapproved with seventy articles .
This happened due to lack of quality.Google wants quantity but as always, “Quality is the King”, and that is why, quality comes first.You have to make the balance of quality and quantity.
How to make sure that your article is a “Quality Content”.
Quantity : You have to make sure that all of your articles are of five hundred words at least.You can count your text`s words from here.Also, put at least one image in your every post (as image says thousand words).
Grammar: After writing, read your post completely for three times.It is very time consuming, but it can save your whole hard work from getting wasted, as Google hates grammatical mistakes.
Plagiarism: [DON`T SCROLL DOWN!] As we all know, for Google, Copying others content is the biggest crime.That is why a professional blogger never do Plagiarism.But believe me, it can be done by you unintentionally, which could not only affect the quality of your post, but can also block your traffic.
Let me explain you, how you can do Plagiarism unintentionally, for example you are writing a news on iPad release.What we do most of time, we copy some of the quotes from the official press release and paste it to our blog like :
On the launch, Vice President of Apple said : Our new iPad is completely redesigned and is ready to compete with all the other tablets in the market.
That bloody panda may kill your traffic, if do like that.Always make quotes italic, and put it inside quotes (”).
On the launch, Vice President of Apple said : ”Our new iPad is completely redesigned and is ready to compete with all the other tablets in the market.”
Vocabulary: Use some extraordinary and uncommon words to enrich your article`s quality.Use vocab builder for this job.
Use only TLD (top level domain) for applying.Choose from .net .org .com .in .co.uk .biz .co.in .co and .pk as Google not approve free domain name sites, like .co.cc, ozed.com, .tk etc.and believe me, domain age does not matters.If you are getting proper traffic, apply after one month.Make sure that your payee name is same as domain`s owner name, as Google also checks the domain information.
You can get it approve, if you are on blogspot and your site is getting high traffic.
No need to worry ! You don`t need to get high traffic like half k or 200.As I told above, I was getting only 10-20 visitors at the time of applying and worked hard and got 100 visitors on the day I applied.You only need to have 50-100 visitors each day.I got it by bookmarking, if you want to know, methods I had used, read this post.
4. Hosted Account
Try to apply from a hosted account, as in my case, I applied through it. A hosted account is a partially approved Adsense, which lets you to monetize your blogspot blog, Docstoc doc and YouTube videos.But you cant monetize your own website through it.
You can get a hosted account from YouTube, if you have quality videos and more a thousand views.After getting it approved, go to account settings in Adsense and add you website there.
After this, Google`s moderators will review your site.
5. Check the form
Before applying, it is necessary to double check the payee name, address, phone, otherwise in case something is wrong, you have to request Google to change your info.
Also, do not re-apply after applying once.
You don`t need to have a 6 month old domain, Google only wants quality and some traffic. I see people who wait for 6 months, even if they have quality and traffic. I know that patience is necessary in blogging, but this is just a waste of time. You can apply after one month, if you have high quality content and a minimum number of 100 visitors/day.
If you follow all the methods and tips that I have stated above, you will definitely get your Adsesne approved within few weeks.
