How to Get AdSense Approval Fast
I recommend you read all I have to say in this segment of the work. It is purely based on my personal experience
I’ll love to be as brief as possible, but it’s recommended you stick to the principles and only do what is right in order to see your blogs running with Google AdSense ads on it.
To expect fast Google AdSense Approval, simply do the following:
Get Your Site Optimized
SEO friendly blogs or websites are first to be considered by the AdSense team.
There are tons of URLs being submitted on daily basis and, of course, the approval methodology must have something to do with automation.
This is why you must make your site be readily available to the Google crawlers even before applying for the AdSense.
Some of the hacks include:
-Designing a mobile-readable site
-Submitting your Sites to Webmaster Tools
-Getting Google to Index your Site
Having Enough Content
Writing thousand posts with no meaning will never attract Google AdSense team to give your blog or site a second look.
And neither will meaningfully copied posts help any blogger looking for AdSense approval.
Before applying for AdSense, make sure you have at least ten creatively Witten posts that have gained some number of reads, and with not less than one thousand, five hundred words.
And I advise you remain unique and specific to a niche, unless you have all it takes to feature well in multiple niches.
Google Love long tails keyworded posts, with so many number of readers, and that is even their method of ranking.
Be Free From Policy Violation
Make sure you read and understand the stated policies of the Google AdSense, and adhere to the contents therein.
Some of the most important policy statements include:
Ensure that none of the contents in your blog, the design and others, have anything against the above Google Policy before submitting your Blog URL for reviews.
Common Reasons Why AdSense Rejected Your Application
Over the years and based on my experience as a blogger, these are the most common facts behind your rejection in the AdSense programs and areas where you are expected to keep a close watch on:
#1. Insufficient content / Unacceptable site content
Your Blog or websites doesn’t have enough text for the AdSense team to review.
Google, like I’ve said loves the content of the site, and that is why you must have enough text to be seen, and remember it must also be of a nice composition.
It must be grammatically correct and free from certain errors. Else they will reject the blog right away
Above this, ensure that your content is unique enough to convince the team that you are the right owner. And the blog must also prove its usefulness to the readers before acceptance will be guaranteed.
#2. Page Type / Design of your blog
Just think like your blog visitor.
I have left many blogs, immediately I landed as a result from the poorly contracted nature of the blog, thereby affecting their bouncing rate.
Just imagine a web blog with a red backroad and texts written in yellow.
It isn’t funny, because I know you won’t visit the blog again, after leaving.
Blogs which are poorly designed and are not good for the visitors to understand easily gets rejected by Google AdSense.
In other words, your blog must be beautiful and pleasing to the eyes of humans.
#3. No Essential Pages
They are the pages you must have carefully written and published before waiting for Google to approve your AdSense.
They are pages that give the impression that you are a professional and that you are working according to the Google policies.
It’s no longer news that having privacy page is also one of the requirements for Google AdSense.
#4. Site Does Not Comply With Google AdSense Policies
Now think about the content on your blog, the organic traffic you’ve gained and the user experience when they come.
If you have no rich, unique and meaningful content, no organic traffic, pages with little to no original content or bad user experience through clear navigation and organization, don’t even think of Google AdSense
But that is not a reason to start sourcing for traffic through illegal sources. Also note that sites with excessive keywords or poorly coded design are usually rejected.
These are just the primary reasons why you’ve been struggling with AdSense Approval.
However, you need a complete guidance and list of things that you need to do before applying for Google AdSense.
Things to Consider Before Reapplying or Applying for Google AdSense
I’m pretty sure that you need to satrt making money online, from your blog. And I’m also sure that you don’t want to stress yourselve to get things done.
Here are things you must consider, if you still admire the amount we make fro Google Adsense on monthly basis:
#5. Get Your Content Right
Content is kind, and that has been the slogan of so many bloggers in Nigeria.
The content of your site is the first thing you must put into consideration before applying for any reasonable Advertisement program anywhere in the word.
I mean this; if you ignore content, you will fail as a blogger.
Both readers and crawler love blogs which has high-quality content and their visitors are enjoying it.
Never forget that your application will be reviewed by humans and not robots, and you need to do everything to make AdSense team impressed about your work
Features of a High-Quality Blog/ Blog Posts
- The content is unique and 100% original
- Has ice titling and captivatedly Paragraphed
- Free from Grammatical Errors and Appealing
- Useful to the readers and must point to sources, if any
But from the general tern, there are more to the definition of a quality content, and we must deal with them here and here.
How to Produce High Quality Written Content
First, you need to know that it’s a requirement for Google AdSense.
Get About Page:
It tell both your readers and Google that you are not a scam. Simple
Even if you’re not applying for Google AdSense, there is every need to get an about us page, at least for the sake of your own consumers.
However, AdSense team has strict behaviors to the omission of any of these necessary pages and you must endeavor to have them ready even before applying for the program.
Let me make myself more clear here; About page describes you and your blog.
This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also make them trust you.
Setup A Contact Us Page:
You do this to suit your lifestyle.
It depends on the reasons you want to be contacted for.
You might also take a look at my contact page to see what it takes to write a contact page for a blog.
It’s better to give them an 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-and that is the need for a Contact Page.
Create a contact page, if possible add your email that you are going to apply for Google AdSense. If possible do get some professional email address like firstname.lastname@example.org and any of your special profiles.
Here is contact page on one of my blogs:

Verify Your Name and Email
While applying, ensure that you input your active email address.
It will confirm to Google AdSense team that it is the same person who applied for AdSense and not some spam, crappy bots.
That will speed up the verification process and within no time, you’ll be able to enjoy fully approved AdSense account.
Have Some Good Number Of Posts
This is the question I get often from bloggers who have applied and failed many times with AdSense.
But here is that fact; there is no definite known answer to the number of posts you must have in your blog before you apply.
Not even one.
This is the amazing truth; I have seen very established blogs with 200+ posts and their owner still complain that Google AdSense is rejecting them while somewhere bloggers with few posts or even less than 10 are enjoying making money with AdSense.
There is no exact answer to this, but bloggers will not stop predicting.
Based on my experience, the best time to apply for AdSense account is when you have at least 20 good quality posts. Your blog posts length should be at least 600+ words with quality content.
In fact, take this particular post as an example of a blog post, best for any search engine ranking.
Last month(while I was making research for this article), I came across a testimonial that said his AdSense account was approved with just 3 posts, 115 views, and 2 comments.
However, when I visited the blog, I realized why it was approved and few things that actually matter for AdSense and Search Engine ranking:
The blog is Simple and clean design
It is Easy to navigate blog
It has a unique niche with amazing contents
The post is a definition of a Detail content
No “unwanted” widgets
It passed the minimum requirement for posts
So, tell me why Google AdSense will not approve the blog before other?
Our problem, in recent blogging routines is that bloggers are not ready to work hard. The era of copy-and-paste has come, but the consequences are also growing to meet up with plagiarists.
Check your Age
Make Sure You’re 18+
This matters a lot and some of these young bloggers don’t take cognizance of them.
New blogger younger than 18 are more likely to fall into this trap. They write incorrect age and get into trouble…smiles
Please, make sure you are honest in writing your date of birth and, of course, you must be above eighteen before they will even look at your proposal.
Google AdSense is not for people who are under 18. And that might be the reason you’re being rejected without any legitimate reason.
My last warning on this, be honest to your inputs but make sure you are eighteen years of age before applying for Google AdSense.
- Touch your Blog Design
You need to improve on your blog Design
The way your blog looks matter to your readers and even Google. It is better you start with a good blog design, as that will give you an edge over your competitions and help your approval be faster.
The design is the first thing a visitor sees when he visits your blog.
So, do everything to make their first encounter become very impressive.
The next big thing after your content is your blog design. And here are few things you must get it aligned to, in order to attract the ranking and approval:
Make your blog Simple and professional
Make your Blog Easy to navigate
Endure you have Proper menus
Don’t include useless items in sidebar or footer
Make your Blog Search engine friendly
Endure you have a Fast loading theme and hosting plan
They will guarantee your chances of getting AdSense approval factor than anyone in your niche.
Bonus: I can help you with a free premium theme, like mine. Feel free to like my Page and follow me on my timeline to get access to free blogging mentoring
However, if you’re on WordPress self-hosted blog then I recommend getting a premium theme from MyThemeShop.
And, of course, if you are on BlogSpot, there are still many other great websites where you can find free professional looking blogger templates for your blog-subject to Googling
- Be sure of your Content Type
Can you read the type of content you are publishing?
You need to be careful of the type of content you’re publishing. If it truly matters.
Here are some common content types that are not accepted by AdSense:
Hacking or Cracking Tutorials
Any Other Illegal Stuff
Another core thing is your language: There are only a few languages supported by Google AdSense and you must ensure that your Language is covered in the list.
Here are AdSense supported languages:
Google AdSense supports publishers in several different languages. Applications for participation in the program can be for sites with content primarily in:
Arabic German Portuguese
Bengali Greek Romanian
Bulgarian Hebrew Russian
Chinese (simplified) Hindi Serbian
Chinese (traditional) Hungarian Slovak
Croatian Indonesian Slovenian
Czech Italian Spanish
Danish Japanese Swedish
Dutch Korean Thai
English Latvian Turkish
Estonian * Lithuanian Ukrainian
Filipino Malay Urdu
Finnish Norwegian Vietnamese
You can also read more about Google’s supported languages here
Just recently, Google AdSense team has also mentioned in one of their forum posts that they stopped accepting niches that are already saturated . And these niches may include ‘ making money, marketing, website and SEO stuff. And so on. You might also want to figure that out yourself.
So if your content falls on this category, it’s either you totally forget about AdSense or you get rid of the content.
- Patronize Top Level Domain
The new Google AdSense policy has favored some URLs. For instance; If you have a blog with blogspot and the domain is yourblog.blogspot.com then chances are you will get approved quickly.
But you will not be able to use that on any other domain like .com. You’ll have to submit the request to upgrade your AdSense account.
This also applies to the AdSense for YouTube. You cannot use the AdSense again for any other purposes unless you reapply for the integration.
As a pro blogger, you must have your own unique domain that specifies your blog. If you don’t have one yet, pause for a while and think of the top level domain name to purchase.
My Domain Recommendations: It will cost anywhere from $10-$15/year. You can buy the domain from Godaddy or Namecheap. But you might also love to decide for yourselves.
So far, the best domain is the one with .com extension. Choose a short, unique and easy to remember domain that is related to your blog niche.
Have it in mind that the age of the domain is another big thing to consider.
Because for some of the Asian countries like India, AdSense has placed domain age restriction. They don’t accept any sites which are less than 6 months old.
But the case may be quite different for you.
- Get free from Other Ad Networks:
If you have any other ads placed like Chitika, Infolinks, Clicksor or anything, it’s time to drop them off.
Remove other ads from your blog.
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 which usually takes anywhere from few days to weeks.
So, before submitting your application for Google AdSense make sure to remove all the ads on your blog from any other network.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t run other ads again on the same blog.
- Check Your Traffic Sources:
Google is not in good terms with those sites that get mostly paid traffic and mostly penalizes them so there is not a damn chance of getting approved by AdSense for a site that is getting 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.
And I must talk about this one. They also hate illegal sources. So, try as much as possible to be legit in your struggles for traffic.
