Getting a Google AdSense account was a piece of cake earlier but now it has become very difficult. People are trying to get account approval without even trying to understand the basic things so Google made some new AdSense policies. Google change these policies every now and then which can be difficult for bloggers to follow properly. At the rate Google is changing their policies, people might get a chance to sell their existing AdSense approved account for a high price in the future. Some people are already selling approved AdSense accounts online but it is recommended not to buy Google AdSense accounts from resellers as it’s against Google’s Term of Services. If they get to know that, they can ban your account instantly without giving you any warning.
If you are getting worried about what if you don’t get approved, the not-approving stuff is for those who don’t know much about AdSense and its policies. Here, I am going to share some basic yet effective ways here that can help you to get approval quickly. If you look around online, you will find ads offering getting AdSense approval in just 10 minutes, 2 days and similar timeline for getting approval which is just another way for them to make money. It’s turning into a new kind of scam. So, the first thing you should do is completely ignore these ads. AdSense offers a way to get money via blogging and some people are trying to make money via teaching not-so-effective ways. However, you don’t have to worry about such things anymore as all the ways shown here are effective and easy to follow.
Things you need to get started
Before we get started, it’s important that you know the basics. It’s nothing difficult actually; all you need is a 6 months old blog or website which is not about adult contents and doesn’t contain any copyrighted materials. Containing copyrighted contents can lead to instant ban as it violates Google policies and we wouldn’t want that. Now that we have a ready to use website, we have to fill it with completely unique articles, no copy pastes. It should contain minimum 10 pages filled with contents before you apply for your account. I forget to mention one thing, you need to be atleast 18 years old to get started. That means we will also need a time-machine in case you are under age in order to get things done quickly. If that problem is solved, we can move on to the next requirements.
Offering unique contents
All the contents should be of minimum 500 words. Avoid writing short articles of 100 to 150 words even if they are very easy to write and try to make them as big as possible. Another thing you should be careful about when choosing your blog title is, whatever you choose, all your content should be related to the blog title. You can’t just start a blog on recipes and then start posting techy articles just because they are reaching more people. Make sure you are choosing a subject that you are familiar with, is popular among people and will get a large number of traffic. Google AdSense reviewers also notice the language you are using for your blog and if the contents are grammatically correct.
We are almost done talking about the basic requirements, all you have to do now is upload your original photo and create an about author page, make the navigation system good and try to post SEO contents to reach customers via Google search. Don’t make one just because you have to get approval from AdSense, make it thinking about the people who are going to visit your website. Now, let’s talk about what to do if your application gets rejected. Don’t apply again quickly. Applying for AdSense again and again after not getting approval can make things worse. So, have patience and keep working on the tips given here to apply again later.
Things you should avoid
Besides adult content, it’s also important that you don’t post any “how to hack” like stuff. It can be difficult to avoid posting such things as they can attract people more than other topics, but the best way to avoid Google’s negative attention is to avoid adult and hacking related contents. Ads placement also plays an important part for preparing a website. Most of us gets exhausted after getting no clicks for a long time and then tries to deceive people by placing them inside articles so that they can click accidentally. However, Google doesn’t support such things and it can also lead to rejection.
Now, let’s talk about how you should promote your site. You are planning to promote your website via taking help from third party sites or purchasing traffic, you need to be very careful. Make sure they don’t feature your ad in pop-ups. Moreover, the online advertising sites have to comply with Google’s Landing Page Quality Guidelines. Once you have fulfilled all these approval methods and got approval from AdSense, your real work begins. You have to learn about Google Analytics, ad placement and we have some interesting case studies to keep you on track.
