You might be heard that some bloggers quit their blogs because of frequent rejection of the AdSense applications.
YES, this is true.
When I started this blog, I read on the internet that it’s a very challenging task to get approval from Google Adsense.
As my blogging experience increases, I started working on Google Adsense and gaining more knowledge about it. Before applying to Adsense, I read all the Adsense policies to get better knowledge about it.
I wrote few posts having enough quality content and applied for Adsense, but immediately I got an email from the Adsense team that your Adsense application has been rejected due to insufficient content on your blog (this was the sad part of my blogging journey).
I had searched on Google for How to get approved by Google Adsense with simple steps? I have read some notes about it and again applied for the Adsense but got the same result.
After that, I have decided to write more content, changed some widgets, theme look, etc. After two days, I got a mail from Google that your Adsense account has been approved. I realized that nothing is impossible if you are working continuously on it will give you positive results.
From the above experience, I learned a few things about the Adsense program. If you are a beginner, then keep this in mind.
- Don’t submit an Adsense application without a proper understanding of Adsense policy.
- Don’t be hurry, slowly and steadily wins the race.
- Once rejected, then read rejection mail carefully and do the needful accordingly.
- Don’t re-apply immediately. Write more content, change some content, or add more, apply the proper theme, etc.

What is Google Adsense?
Google Adsense is the advanced monetizing PPC (Pay Per Click) technique by which you can earn money online. Adsense allows publishers to place ad units on their sites. Once approved, you need to copy the script code and paste it wherever you want to display ads. When the readers click on those ads, they will get paid accordingly.
Adsense pays 0.1 cents to $15 per click(the click rate varies on various factors). Ads that will be shown on your blog are related to your content. You can choose any ad type suitable for your blog(Adsense is improving their ads experience so you don’t need to take care of the size, it will auto resize to your blog space)
To place the Adsense ads, you must have your blog. Now the question is that How can you create a blog? Before starting the blog, you should decide on the niche for your blog. Most of the beginners write about multiple topics (multi-niche blog), which will affect their blog SEO.
The most popular niches are News, Technology, Blogging, Mobile, Coupon, etc. You can write on any niche that you want, but I recommend you choose only one niche.
Select the blog niche in which you are interested and have low competition, which will help you to grow more traffic.
After deciding the blog niche next is to choose the blog platform, either it is Blogger or WordPress. For the beginner, I would recommend Google Blogger(Free), but if you want to become a professional blogger or want to make a career in blogging, then I highly recommend you to self-hosted WordPress.
How many posts required to apply for Adsense?
Creating a blog is not enough. You have to write up to 10-20 posts to qualify for AdSense. Though it is not mentioned in the Google Adsense policies to have that much content, at least we should have enough content before applying it.
I had written only 6-7 posts while I was applying for Adsense. I got excited when I got a mail from Google that your AdSense account gets approved. That time I realized that I am brilliant because I have frequently heard that it’s challenging to get approved by Google Adsense.
How to create an Adsense account?
You can create an Adsense account here. With three steps, you can easily create your Adsense account.
- Provide Existing/New Google account information.
- Your website information.
- Most important personal information.
For step by step guide with a snapshot about creating an Adsense account read my below article.
Adsense approval process
This is the most tedious task which I have ever faced in my blogging journey. As most of the bloggers facing this problem even though they write quality content still Adsense account not get approved why? I have also tried lots of times and get rejected. Finally, I realized that before applying to Adsense, your blog must be completed with full quality content and organized properly.
After reading tons of articles about the Adsense approval process, I found one method to approve Google Adsense account within a few hours. This Adsense approval process is straightforward, and 100% it will work. If you don’t want the above method via YouTube, then you can use the typical process by which you have to write quality content on your blog.
Please check the below points before applying to Adsense
- Please buy a custom domain name(optional)
- Write at least five posts on your blog. There is no limit or restriction, but you should have a few posts on your blog.
- Choose a proper theme and organize it accurately.
Once your Adsense account gets approved, you did 95% of your work. The next task is ads placed on your blog. There is a restriction on the number of Adsense ads per page. Don’t put too many ads of the same types on a single page because it will irritate the visitors also it is against the Google Adsense policy resulting in your account will be get banned.
Recently Google Adsense change its policy for publishers. If there is any policy violation, then only that URL will be get blocked by Adsense means you can still put the Ads in another post.
If your account gets rejected, then try to improve your blog content, design, change the theme, etc., and reapply. Even if your Adsense account refused, later try the above method which I have explained above by using YouTube.
How much you earn through Google Adsense?
Every Adsense user is trying to find out the answer to this as Google doesn’t disclose this, but you can easily find out the cost per click on the Adsense dashboard. You can get $0.1-$15 per click depending on the location and advertisement.
If you want to increase the CPC of your ads, then you can block the low CPC ads on your dashboard then google only show high CPC ads. To increase Adsense clicks, Google has introduced the matched content ads, which will show the readers related posts about the content. It may be your blog post or other content. It is similar to the relevant post widget on our blog.
How to verify the address to Adsense?
Once your earning reached $10, then you will see the notification in the Adsense dashboard that
Your payment is currently on hold because you have not verified your address.
To check your address, Google sent you a PIN via post to the address which you have provided during sign-up. It will reach you within two weeks.
I will update this Adsense guide regularly so don’t forget to revisit it. Still, if you have any doubts about Adsense, then please let me know I will help you. You can drop me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on social network pages.
