As a content creator certainly just like you, i can imagine the pain and desire you have so as to get Adsense approved. Probably you have given it a number of tries but all resulting to denial from the Adsense approval team.
So, in this blog i just want to keep it very brief but also to be very honest and share with you one of my latest experience applying for Adsense account approval for a client that actually turned out to be a nightmare.
You see, blogger Adsense approval has of recent got a lot of tweaks and probably Google’s smart crawlers are instructed to be as turf as possible on all Adsense applicants. Truth be told, i tempted applying for Adsense specifically for this client in our 7 times. I almost gave up if it came out that on the 8th time i was unsuccessful.
Why mention all that, possibly you’re going through the same exact scenario and probably soon giving up. My friend, i have one word for you. Don’t give up unless you’re done reading this article and re-apply using the tips am going to share here.
Background on Getting Adsense Approval
About 3yrs ago, i got my first website approved on Adsense and it was pretty easy for me. And that’s how i got to have an active Adsense account. However, approval or approving algorithms/crawlers or team have got very strict these days and that being said, i just wish to confirm that there is no Adsense approval trick that will just bypass the program policies rather, doing the hard work.
I was shocked even when i had done what was ‘required’ of me to get my client’s Adsense application approved but on receiving a response from Google, nothing but messages like…

Honestly, i applied for 7 times and Adsense team disapproved site or NOT approved for Adsense Ads.
Perhaps you’re imagining that, i was doing it wrong. Maybe, maybe not…
Here Is What i did in first place
So, my client’s site is in the entertainment niche and one of the violations Adsense approving team highlighted in the response message was that content on website was copyrighted content or appeared to have been scraped from somewhere.
Truth is, content might have appeared similar to other platforms venturing in the same or similar topics as my client’s website however, all content we had published on site was 100% original and written by my in house team. On top of that, the only 10 published blogs posts were 100% copyscape free and each blog post had over 1000 words to be very exact.
We had performed the basic seo and article structuring like adding internal links, external links, media (images) and of course each article was over 1000 words which is way above the fold.
Why AdSense Application Rejected and How To Fix It
First things first, you NEED to make sure that your website fully complies with the Adsense program polices because without that, there’s NO way around.
As you will see in the Adsense policy (hopefully you read it), that there are several reasons why your AdSense application may have been rejected.
Let me assume your scenario is similar to mine. I mean you over 10 blog posts originally written and pass the copyscape criteria, i want to assume that your website content is not scrapped and rewritten in some way to seem original.
Let me also assume that your website fully complies with all the Adsense policies and that your blog articles are interlinked, having external links and media (image, videos) linked within.

Is there an Adsense Traffic Cap?
Some people actually think that they need a certain amount of traffic to get your AdSense approved. The answer here NO. Actually when i was applying for the program, my clients’s website had only 1-4 visitors a day which were me, my team and the client.
Way Forward To Get Adsense Application Approved
The best way to get your rejected Adsense application approved is by taking time to fix issues on your website that Adsense mentions in the rejections email. And then after apply again. There are no limitations on how many times you can reapply.
One thing i can recommend though is that you spend most of the time reading through the program polices and make sure your website/blog fully complies.

But also, i hope that by reading this article you get an idea of what you should do to grab 99% chances that your application is approved.
Yes, it takes much effort especially reading and writing the content but hey, how will you earn with Adsense if you’re not publishing content?
