Why am I writing this guide? And what is this guide about?
There are many posts about “How to get AdSense approval” on the web and they are almost similar. Everyone has the same pieces of advice.
- No Adult content.
- Advertisements should not be placed to encourage or mislead users to click on it.
Which means, no content that is illegal or misleading should be published on a site using Google AdSense, otherwise, your AdSense account will be banned.
Following the AdSense policies is the only way to get your AdSense account approved.
There were many other AdSense policies that were enforced strictly on publishers, but some of them are taken down by them. Limiting the number of ads per page and complete ban of the domain from using AdSense after a policy violation are some of the policies that no longer exists.
Before that, you should know why aren’t they approving most of the blogs that apply for AdSense.
Anything wrong with them or are we doing something wrong?
Why was my AdSense Account Application disapproved?
There are some possible reasons for disapproving your AdSense account (and you can fix it now).
And there is a myth, for AdSense approval, your blog should be at least 6 months old. I can show you getting approval for a one-day-old blog or a one-month-old blog. They don’t look at the site age, instead, all they are looking for is quality.
Google is Smart!
#1. Many Ads
I used to place a few affiliate banners and they disapproved the request for AdSense approval pointing “too many ads” as a reason.
So, I recommend you to remove all the ad banners before you apply for AdSense (
you can keep one or two banners if needed, but removing all other ad units can help you in getting AdSense approved)
If you are into affiliate marketing, remove those direct banners with affiliate links. If you want to place any banner ads, connect it with the review or any post related to that product.
I applied for AdSense with a single affiliate banner and they rejected the application. And the reason was that ad banner which was redirecting to the product site.
#2. Not Enough Content
How enough is enough? Do you know that?
My recommendations are:
- Write 5-10 posts at least before you apply for the AdSense account.
- The post should be at least 300 words, but I recommend you to write posts that are at least 500 words or more.
- Make the post and site look natural, you should include images and videos between posts.
- Content should not contain errors (grammatical and spelling errors).
#3. No Adult content or Restricted Content
- You can’t use AdSense ads on adult sites and sites with sensitive contents. So, if there are any adult content or if there are any sensitive contents, remove it before you apply for AdSense.
- Try other Adult ad networks for adult sites (ExoClck is an Adult Ad network).
#4. Not Enough Pages
- About Us
- Contact us, etc. are the must-have pages for every blog.
Now you know, why did they disapprove your AdSense account. And it’s easy for you to get AdSense approval now.
