Things to Do Before Applying for Adsense
1. Write High Quality Content
The #1 thing to do before applying for Google Adsense is to write high quality engaging content.
Google loves the blogs who are providing high quality content that eyeballs just can’t resist.
Keep in mind guys your application will be reviewed by humans and you have to impress them to get approved by Adsense.
High quality content…………
- is unique and original
- no grammar and spelling
- proper length
- useful and informative.

2. Create Privacy Page for Your Blog
If you don’t have it you cannot get approval it’s as simple as that.
Why Is it Important ?
3. Create About Page
An About page has a major role and importance even if you don’t want to apply for Adsense. But when it comes to Adsense there is about zero chance of getting approved if you are not showing this page.
About page simply describes you and your blog. This will not only help you establish a relationship with readers but it will also help with trust.
4. Setup A Contact Us Page
Everyone has their opinion. This page gives an opportunity to speak to you about how they feel about your blog whether they liked it or hated it.
Create a contact page. If possible do get professional email address like firstname.lastname@example.org and your social profile links too.
By creating this you are telling Google that we care for our customers ,visitors and we are ready to help them. They can contact us anytime.
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.
Check out my Contact page to get an idea.
One important step: Google Adsense mentions in their email that your website should have a clear navigation menu to help your readers easily find the content that they are looking for.
The more you care about improving your visitors experience the higher your chances will be to get approved by Adsense.
5. Verify Your Name and Email
When you apply don’t forget to put your name and email address in some easily visible area like about and contact pages.
It will confirm to Google Adsense team that it is the same person who applied for Adsense and not some spam.
This will speed up the verification process and within no time you will be able to enjoy your Adsense account.
One of my favorite bloggers Jerry Schoemaker of Shoe money is number 8 on the Google Adsense list making $ 80,000 every month.
6. Have A Good Number of Quality Post
According to my experience everybody the best time to apply for an Adsense account is when you have at least 20 quality post.
Your blog post length should be at least 600 + words with quality content.

7. Make Sure You’re 18 +
Use your correct date of birth and age while applying for your Google Adsense account.
8. Improve Your Blog Design
A clean professional and fast loading design is what Google likes. You have to make a good first impression to engage your readers. It should be
- simple and professional
- easy to navigate
- proper menus
- search engine friendly
- Fast loading
9.Check Your Content Type
Here are some common content types that are not accepted by Adsense.
- Pornography/adult materials
- Pirated content
- Hacking tutorials
- Illegal drugs / paraphernalia
10. Use Top Level Domain
You must use your own unique domain that specifies your blog. Go buy a Top level domain. You can buy the domain from Godady and namecheap.
The best domain is the one with .com extension. Choose a short and easy domain to remember that is related to your blog niche.
11. Remove Other Ad Networks
If you have any other ads placed like, Infolinks or Clicksor, take them off.
Make your blog ad free. Before submitting your application for Google Adsense make sure to remove all the ads from any network.

12. Check your Traffic Sources
Google hates sites that are getting paid traffic and mostly penalizes them so there is not a chance of getting approved by Adsense for a site that is getting paid traffic.
If you want to earn thru Google paid traffic is not a solution. So focus on getting traffic from sources like social media, search engines, and related blogs.
What to do if Your Application is Rejected ?
Well, it’s not the end of the world !
There are two things you can do
1. Keep the faith. Take the time to correct the issues thet prevented your blog from attaining Adsense approval and reapply.
Remember you have no limit on how many times you can reapply as long as you use the same email account.
2.There are other competent and reliable ad networks available that aren’t as strict as Google Adsense in terms of getting approved.
Like my grandmother use to say, “When God closes a door he usually opens a window.”
You can use these ad networks to earn money without Adsense.
Infolinks is the leader in text advertising which offers 70% revenue share even if you’re new at blogging. It is different from other advertising networks.
