How To Get Your Blog or Website Approved by Google AdSense
- 1The first step for you to get AdSense approval is to create a blog or a website.There are a number of ways you can go about creating your website or blog, but it should be with a top-level domain such as .com, .org or .net. The two best programs you can use to create a blog are Blogger (powered by Google) or WordPress, and both can be created from their sites blogger.com or wordpress.com. The Blogger program is free to create, but you will have a BlogSpot domain, and if you wish to create your own custom address it will cost you $10. If you choose to use WordPress, you can create a blog for free, or you can pay approximately $18 dollars per year to create a custom domain address. For creating a website, two of the more popluar domain registrar and web hosting companies are godaddy.com and web.com. It's important to know the creating a website can often be very costly if you want to have a high-end custom domain.Advertisement
- 2Make sure your blog or website has lots of high quality content.The content you create for should be rich with useful content that reflects the image of your blog or website. It should be completely original. Always high quality, relevant images on your site. If you have a WordPress blog, you'll need to include at least 40 good articles, as well as a few 2000-word or longer well-written articles. If you have an HTML website or non-CMS blog, you'll need at least 50 good articles or landing pages. If you don't meet these minimum standards, your application may be rejected based on insufficient or unoriginal content. Your site should be well-organized and easy to navigate, as well.Advertisement
- 4Get page views.Once your site is complete, the next goal is to get it seen. One way to do this is to submit your website or blog to search engines such as Google and Bing. Even if you don't do this, your site should eventually get indexed and crawled, but doing so can speed up the process. One way that you can check the status of your website or blog's search ranking is through Alexa. If you're not satisfied with your blog or website's search rankings, adjust the content according to search engine optimization practices and resubmit it to the search engines. It's best to wait at least two months for the site to gain traffic. You should aim for at least a minimum of 50 visitors per day.
- 5Take advantage of the webmaster tools offered by search engines when you register your blog or website.This will give you access to search analytics reports that show your site's rankings, and it allows you to view traffic changes over time, sort and organize data, view recent queries and view pages that receive the most clicks on search results. This information can help you optimize your site and improve its performance and rankings. You'll also be alerted of any critical issues related to your site, such as server, DNS or URL errors. There are also tons of other resources offered that let you test your data, make your website run faster and create customized searches for your website.
How to Submit an Application to Google AdSense

You can begin placing ads on your site right away, but Google wants to make sure you're using the system properly and not clicking on your own ads. Once you've been approved, you can even use AdSense to place ads on any other websites or blogs that you own without having to reapply.

Tips Tricks & Warnings

- Continuously incorporate SEO techniques to improve your site's visitor traffic.
