Things to Do Before Applying for Google AdSense
We keep receiving emails from our readers who have trouble getting approved for Google Adsense. In this article we will look in deep on the most mistakes you all keep doing when applying for Adsense.
2. About Page:
About page simply describes about you and your Blog . This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also make them trust upon you.
3. Contact Us Page:
It’s quite obvious that everyone has his/her own opinion. What one of your readers likes may be bothering someone else. Than it is better to give them opportunity to speak up to you and tell how they feel about your Blog, what they want to be edited , what they liked or hated.
Create a contact us page, if possible add your professional email there like firstname.lastname@example.org and your social profile links too. By creating this you are telling Google that see we care for our customers, visitors and we are ready to help them. They can contact us any time.
It will also show the Google AdSense Team that is viewing your site that you actually care about your readers and not only the money and AdSense.
4. Name/ Email Verification:
When you apply don’t forget to put your Name and Email address in some easily visible area like About Me and Contact Us pages. It will confirm to Google AdSense Team that it is the same person who applied for AdSense and not some spam, crappy bots. This will help the Google in the verification process.
5. Age Verification:
This is the mistake that most younger blogger are making who are less than 18. They write incorrect age and get into trouble. Use your correct date of birth and age while applying for Google AdSense account.
Because Google AdSense is not for people who are under 18. Some people realize this problem after being disproved a few times without any legitimate reason. So I advise you to be accurate while typing your age. Be honest.
6. Minimum Number of Posts:
What should be the minimum number of posts before applying for Google AdSense? There is no fixed number for it. It is however advised to post regularly.
As mentioned earlier, you blog design matters a lot. It should be professional and not like a messy photo gallery. Clean, professional and smart design is appreciated by Google.
Your blog design is the biggest thing after Content. This represents your expertise, experience and professionalism. So be careful because anything can kill your chances of getting approved by AdSense.
8. Content Type:
Be careful with what type of content you are publishing. Because it is something that truly matters. Google AdSense is not for Pornographic, Illegal Items, Drugs or other Blogs / Sites like that. AdSense team won’t be willing to allow you to step in if you own a Non English Blog. Having posts shorter than 200 words in length is also Red Signal.
9. Providing Value:
Google loves the blog who are providing value in their content and their visitors and customers are enjoying that value. Be sincere with your visitors don’t ever try to scam them instead provide value.
Don’t complain about not making money and don’t clearly state that you’re blogging for money only and have no other interest in it. Because this will show them that you will not be providing values to your readers any day. Hence another Red Light glows up.
10. Top Level Domain:
Those days are gone far away when AdSense used to approve “Blogspot” and “WordPress.com” Blogs. As for today, you must have your own unique domain that specifies your Blog. If you don’t have one yet, stop dreaming about getting approved with Sub domains and go buy a Top Level Domain.
When it comes to domain, your domain should be of top level. For this purpose the best domain is .com domain. Choose a short, unique and easy to remember domain related to your blog niche.
11. Other Ad Networks:
If you have any other Ads placed like Chitika, Clicksor or anything, it’s time to drop them off.
Even Google AdSense allows you to use other Ad Networks along with them, it’s better to remove the ads before Applying and don’t put them back until you get a reply from AdSense Team.
12. Paid Traffic:
You can bring traffic from Search Engines or any other way you want but if you want to earn via Google AdSense the right way, paid traffic is not a solution. Also note, that Google do not accept site which gets traffic from illegal sources.
