Accessed 29 June DeMerceau, John. Small Business - Chron. The reason I never wrote about it in the past is because I got my own Adsense account around 5 years ago, and it was kind of different back then. My own site had only 5 or 6 pages on it when I applied.
They were high quality pages with a lot of research, but still… it was just 5 pages slapped onto a free WP theme. The most important thing you have to realize is that an actual Google employee is going to visit your site, click around, and read your content. That means… some ridiculously smart human being who works for Google is going to visit your site, click around, read your articles, analyze your source code, and then…. There are a lot of reasons a site can get rejected. These 5 long-form content combined with around normal word articles should be enough to please any manual reviewer.
But why apply before you have any traffic? You need traffic to make money. Honestly, though…. Why not wait until you do before applying, and grow out the site in the meantime? Build out the site first. Put out some great content. Build traffic. Build some backlinks. Rank for something.
Get some engagement on your site from readers. Quality content is one thing, but if you have a site on a domain that was registered last week, with 20 posts slapped onto it, all published on the same day……. I come across a lot of sites that were rejected from Adsense, and this is a common feature that everyone has on their site.
Having categories are a bad user experience if every category you click only has a few pages in them.
Like this. Google gives you a maximum of 3 ad spots for a reason. Even if you decide you want to mix in other ad networks in the future, remove them when you submit your site for approval. Having some nice quality links pointed at your site from established sites is a good thing to have before you submit your site. Yes, SEO and Adsense are not related to each other, but no manual reviewer who sees 20, comment links built last week is going to take your site seriously.
That means… these reviewers are going through about sites before finding one that meets their standards. Thanks Chris. This is just what I needed. I think I will wait before applying and work on content first. Woah, never actually knew that the free themes can have backlinks snuck in from other sites. Thumbs up for the mini course man! Hello Chris, This is really a very useful guide for prospective adsense publishers. Its really incredible how adsense now review sites before approving them for adsense.

Hi Chris, that really nice article, when I created my blog I was not even aware of AdSense, I just created for fun, sharing my programming skill and for frame :P. My site: — was 3 weeks old — had 5 posts — had categories most of them were empty — had 0 traffic — was not about 1 topic. But it did have: — All the mandatory pages about, contact, disclaimer, etc — 5 posts with — words of excellent, self-written, researched content that linked out to other authority sites — Premium theme a bit customised , custom logo and favicon.
In my opinion you should just make it look professional and make sure it delivers value to the visitors. Check your email to see if Adsense sent you any emails regarding your account. If not, should be fine. My site is responsive, I can put 3 blocks of ads? Hi Chris Much appreciated on Adsense account approval tips. Your post is a breeze to read!
