Most webmasters and blogger have become frustrated because of their inability to get an Adsense account.
Am going to be sharing my experience and tips i use in getting this blog approved by Google Adsense when it was just three(3) weeks old and am sure it will work for you too.

  • Website Compliance With Adsense Policies

    Before i decided to submit an Adsense application, i ensured my website complies with their policies. For example, website that belong to the niche or synonymous to website with below content and information isn’t allowed by Google Adsense. As a matter of fact, the website will be rejected automatically; P*pornography, adult or mature content, violent content, content related to racial intolerance or advocacy against any individual group

    Now that my blog is in compliance with Adsense policies, the next step was to ensure my website contain unique and quality blog post.

  • Clean Website Design

    Google overtime has stress the need of over a clean website design with increase loading speed and navigation(this is one of the criteria Adsense take into consideration before approving your application). Before applying for Adsense, i made sure my blog had a clean design without any other Adnetwork AD and affiliate link in it. Then i added breadcrumb to enable users to easily navigate the site and increase users experience.

  • Number Of Blog Post

    Google Adsense is a contextual adnetwork, which means, they rely on the text contain in website to display targeted Advert. One of the criteria google take into consideration when reviewing your application is the quantity of text contain in your blog or website. As a result, they always stress the need for website wanting to join their network to contain lots of text.
    Now to the question, How many number of blog post should i have before applying to Adsense?
    Before i applied for Adsense, i read several blogs and forum regarding this question. Some said you must have a minimum of 10, others said 20 and the list goes on. But in my case, i was having just eight(8) quality blog post when i got approved by adsense. What this implies is, it doesn’t matter the number of blog post you have, rather the number of quality and unique post without any copyrighted content. Take note, i wasn’t having very short post, they where lengthy though.

  • My Domain Age

    There’s always this argument in webmasters forum, blogs that Adsense only approve blog/website with a minimum domain age of 6 months. They’re quite correct ‘cos i once saw it in the official Google Adsense policies page.
    But in my case, i got approved when my domain was approximately a month old. What this implies is – in order for Adsense to over look the domain age rule, your site has to contain awesome, quality, and Google friendly content.

  • My Blog Traffic

    As at the time of applying to Adsense program, my blog was having very low traffic which was about 10-20 page view daily, nevertheless, i still got accepted in spite of the low traffic.
    Then i concluded that, Adsense doesn’t or no longer take traffic into consideration. subject to debate though

Now that you’ve read the tips i used in getting approved by Google Adsense, i urge you not to just read, but implement it if you will like to have an approve adsense account.
