9 Things to Get Easy Google AdSense Approval
- Domain name or site URL
- Top-level domain
- Length of site ownership
- Unique content
- Update frequency
- Site layout
- IP address
- Wait after rejection
- Correct personal information
The very first reason for AdSense rejection is that not using right URL. Google does not accept application with the URLs containing Google trademarks like AdSense, Google, AdWords, etc. People use popular company names in the domain to get easy traffic. However, that will neither help to establish your own brand nor help in getting AdSense approval from Google. Below are some of the examples of bad domain names:
Remember using brand names and trademarks without permission is considered as violation as per AdSense policies. You will notice there are many sites having brand name in the domain displaying AdSense ads. 100% they would have approval on some other site and use the ad code on different sites that violate the terms. In such case, one fine day Google will send a notice and ban the entire AdSense account for life time.
So check and ensure your domain does not contain any trademarks of any companies.
2. Use Top-Level Domain
Gone are the days you can get AdSense approval easily from Blogger site having few pages. Though this is still possible to get approval for Blogger sites, we never recommend this. Either we don’t recommend starting with revenue sharing programs that will help you to host your site and cut commission from your AdSense earning.
Google does not accept the domain of a free hosted site or blog like yoursite.weebly.com. The reason is that publishers should have permission to add HTML code in their webpages and most of the free hosting services do not allow this for free. So register your own domain and start building content with paid hosting platforms using content management systems like WordPress before applying for AdSense account.
3. Length of Site Ownership
Earlier Google had no restriction for the length of ownership of the site. But to protect advertisers from displaying their ads on inferior sites, Google introduced a restriction on the length of site ownership. Publishers applying for AdSense account should own their site for the minimum period of 6 months. This rule is applicable for certain locations including India and China. In general it is a good idea to own your site for at least 6 months before applying for AdSense.
4. Content of Your Site
Ensure you have an original and quality content before applying for Google AdSense. If you copied content from other sites Google not only rejects your AdSense application but also penalize by blocking your site from the search results. Ensure to have the followings on your site before applying:
- Minimum of 50 blog posts or page relevant to your niche.
- Unique and original content written on your own.
- Clear information on about, contact and privacy pages.
- No black hat SEO technique.
- Site gets decent traffic; let’s say 100 visitors per day.
In our opinion, you definitely need more than six months to build such a website. First focus on building your site then you can easily apply for AdSense account. Also avoid applying with pornography and illegal content.
5. Content Update and Under Construction
Regularly updating the content on your site is a good habit to keep your site live. Google has separate crawler for AdSense for the purpose serving ads. During approval process this AdSense crawler will scan your site for the content quality as well as the last content update on your site. If you have updated your site long back or the pages are under construction then the possibility of approval is very low. So, make sure you have recently updated the content before applying.
6. Check Site Layout
Some website themes may have congested layout to have elements nearer to each other. For example, AdSense policy does not allow placing an ad nearer to an attractive image confusing people. Buy a simple and responsive theme and test your site on all devices for appropriate user experience before applying AdSense account.
7. IP Address
Frankly, there are no proofs that Google will reject applications from any specific IP address. As a mater of precaution, avoid applying through proxies and public computers like internet center or an office computer shared by multiple users. There could be problem with that IP address which you may not aware. So, make sure to apply from the personal computer.
If your application got rejected one or more time without appropriate reasons, try applying again from the different IP address.
8. Wait After Rejection
Don’t get panic when Google rejects your application. It’s not a crime and merely an opinion from Google on your site. Assuming you have followed all good practices then check out the reason for rejection and work on fixes to solve the problem. For example, if your application was rejected due to content violation then analyze what went wrong and update the content according to the policies.
Take at least few months time to resolve the issues before applying again.
9. Accurate Personal Information
This is the most important thing where publishers make mistake when applying for AdSense. Your Gmail id is used for applying AdSense. Hence try to provide legitimate personal details in the application exactly matching with your Gmail account. Mostly you will receive a rejection letter from Google when there are discrepancies in personal information provided. For example, your password recovery phone number of your Gmail id is in India but you have provided USA postal address in AdSense application. Though this situation is relay possible, make sure you are applying with accurate personal details for easy processing and approval.
Google will send a verification code to your postal address in order to initiate the payment processing on your account. Hence, provide correct postal address where you will be able to receive a PIN from Google.
Your name and country cannot be changed once your AdSense account is approved. But you can receive the payment under different payee name through wire transfer.
