I first applied to Google Adsense back in 2005 or 2006. And since that time, I have helped loads of others get Google Adsense approval!
Each time, my applications have been approved to start using the Google Adsense program, so I feel like I can offer some solid advice on how to apply for Google Adsense and get approved.
Now, if you have been following my blog, you know that I had a bit of a setback with my Google Adsense account, but I am now actively using Google Adsense as though nothing happened. The reality is that Google Kindly Approve My AdSense Account Adsense is the best contextual marketing program on the market with the most advertisers and the highest payouts.
I love the Adsense program and definitely recommend those involved with niche websites to at least get started with Adsense.
If you want to maximize your site earnings, we talk about how to get the biggest bang for your buck out of Adsense approval later on down the post.
There are other options available once you get over a certain amount of pageviews, but Adsense is a fantastic way to earn extra income, especially if you are just starting out.
Let’s take a look at the steps you’ll need to take to get that Google Adsense approval. As well as some other ad networks (Adsense alternatives) you might consider if you already get lots of traffic.
To be honest, it’s shocking to hear how many people get declined from Google Adsense approval. I’ve received many emails from readers saying that their applications were declined. I’ve read complaints on forums or comments about the difficulty of getting approved with Google.
There are quite a few things that people miss when they apply, like privacy policies, contact pages, or just having a decent website in general.
While there is a lot of intentional vagueness about Google’s Adsense program policies on the Adsense homepage to give them leeway in deciding who to approve for Google Adsense ads and who to reject, there are some solid steps you can take to make sure you don’t run into problems.
I personally have never experienced going through a rejection, but I’ve also been very careful when I apply. Below you will find the process I have used to apply and get approved to Google Adsense on two different occasions.
In a nutshell, there are 5 steps to applying and getting approved to the Adsense display ad network. You’ll want to follow each of these steps for Adsense approval.
Before You Apply for Adsense
Doing these two steps before applying for the Google Adsense program will save you a lot of headaches during the actual application process.
While it’s understandable to rush to get that ad revenue coming in, don’t. You are applying to Google’s ad network. You need to show that as a website owner you add value to them.
How do you do this? With quality content.
Without quality content you will never get the search result rankings you want anyway. So take the time to do those two steps right before applying.
Once you have those two issues taken care of, then you can start the actual application process. The quick bullet point steps are right here, we’ll dive into each step a little more a touch further down the page:
Please note, these same tips also apply to getting a Blogger Adsense approval.
This is the more in-depth guide to applying for Adsense. Once you know how to apply for Google Adsense you can work on optimizing your chances of getting approved.
Step One of getting approved for Google Adsense is to apply. You can apply online to Google Adsense right here.
This will bring you up to a page that looks like this.
First of all let me make you clear that you should never apply for a Google Adsense Account for your friends or known people because its them who should be doing it. Also the application Page would even record your IP address, hence to be on safe side always recommend the person who is looking to get a Adsense Account to apply for the same themselves. Lets go the current rules for the application of your new account as per Google Guidelines :
Unacceptable site content: In order to participate in Google AdSense,
publishers’ websites and application information must satisfy the
1. Your website must be your own top-level domain (www.example.com and not http://www.example.com/mysite).
This means that you should be applying for a Google Adsense Account with your Root Domain Name and not from a Sub Folder. You can also apply from Sub Domains like blogspot.com or blog.com which offer you free blog services. Make sure that you apply from your main website and not from a new blog because a established website has more chances of application approval.
2. Your domain must have been registered and active for at least 6 months before you apply for AdSense.
As previously mentioned, the service requires you to apply from a established website rather than a new one because a new blogger or website owner is not going to make any good amount of money in the initial stage and recently we have seen many fraud account holders who opt for wrong tactics in getting clicks and making money.
3. You must provide accurate personal information with your application that matches the information on your domain registration.
This requirement is important because in this case the Adsense Team can verify the ownership of the Domain Name through which you are applying for a new Account. I have come through many fraudsters who even have applied for a Google Adsense Account by entering my website URL in the application process but were rejected because of the Whois Information.
4. Your website must contain substantial, original content.
This is a very obvious point because unless a website have Original Content, it wont be making any good amount of money. Not only counting the money part but posting Duplicate Content is totally wrong and is not allowed, hence if someone applies for a new Publisher Account for a website with copied content then it would be rejected.
5. Your site must comply with Google AdSense program policies.
There are multiple Google Adsense Policies which have to be perfectly implemented and made sure you dont break any of them. The most important of which is not posting advertisements on pages which have Illegal Content.
Adsense approval usually occurs within 24 to 48 hours now. If you follow my steps above for creating a unique site that has never been involved with Google Adsense before, you should have no issues getting approved quickly.
At that point, you will receive an Adsense approval email from Google that explains the process. Essentially you are “temporarily” approved until you meet other verification steps.
This means you can start placing ads on your site and you will see the clicks and ad revenue coming into your account. Google is simply monitoring your activity to make sure you are not clicking your own ads or sending suspicious traffic.
As long as you leave your ads alone and don’t do anything suspicious you should be fine.
Do NOT mess with ad placement, ad code, or use spammy methods to drive traffic during this time or you will sabotage your own application.
You can temporarily place Adsense ads on your site using the ad code that Google provides you in your ads dashboard.
In addition, you can also add the Google Adsense code to ANY of your other websites! You don’t have to apply for each new site – you can start placing Adsense ad code on all of your sites once you have Adsense approval.
Once you have any approved account, you can use the same Adsense code on all your sites, but you should definitely create new ad units and color themes for each ad that you place on different sites.
You want to make sure your ads match the coloring of your site and your brand.
This is also the unofficial “Step 4” of the process: Pin verification, bank account, tax information, & phone number.
Before you get paid, you need to verify this important information with Google. This part of the process has a few steps of it’s own.
First, Google will send you a PIN verification in the mail. This will come after a week to 10 days usually.
