How I got my Google Adsense account approved?

Like every newbie blogger, the happiest day of my blogging life is the day on which I got my Google Adsense account fully approved!

I have applied a week before and within 24 hours, I got an email to install ad code on my blog which usually Google asks to install to track the impressions, click activity and other factors on the basis of which it either approves or disapproves the Adsense application.

I added the code as instructed, and it was 7th June 2015 when I got another mail from Google, stating that my application has been approved and I can run ads on my blog. The whole process took 5 days only.

Hurray! That is the best email I have ever gotten! 🙂 I know it is not easy to earn few dollars every day but the approval has motivated me so much and I am filled with so much of joy and positive energy.

Have to work harder than before! 🙂

Before I plunged into blogging, I was not aware about affiliate, Infolinks, and other monetization ways except Google Adsense. I read so many articles which talk about it, and I learnt that getting approved with Adsense takes time.

The very first thing we need to do is to build a good blog and then build traffic and engagement.

Therefore, with the vision of building a better blog, I have started techiegig.com, and from the day one, I have dreamt for getting approved for Adsense but that was too early to think about it. I needed to build the blog from scratch and make it good enough to comply with the Adsense TOS.

Here is the list of things I did to make a good blog with which I was able to get approved with Adsense:

Good Hosting: As I booked the domain, I had to get the web hosting which needs to be good enough to keep my blog available 24×7 with faster loading speed. I heard about many web hosting services but I thought to go with Godaddy and I am very happy with it as of now.

Loading speed of the blog must be good because only a faster loading blog can offer a good user experience to the readers. And this is important from Google?s point of view though it is not directly related to Adsense but if the user experience is good, your blog is in the good books of Google.

A responsive Theme: I chose WordPress CMS for creating the blog thus I needed a theme as well. I have chosen a responsive theme so that my blog can be readable on any device size whether desktop, mobile or tablets.

Again this is related to availability and user experience.

Adding important Pages on the blog: About us, Contact us, Privacy Policy, Disclaimer are very important pages which you must add on the blog before applying for Adsense. I have added all of these pages.

Writing Quality Articles: I didn?t publish even a single low quality post. If you look at my articles, you will find each and every article is well explained and not plagiarized.

If your content is not good and plagiarized, your blog won?t be able to get approved.

Building Traffic and engagement on the blog: Because of posting quality articles, building traffic and engagement were not tough but still I needed work hard to build organic as well as referral traffic to the blog.

Publishing Enough content: Before applying for Adsense, always make sure to have enough content on the blog. At the time of applying, I had published more than 40 articles which means blog has enough content.

What All I have avoided?

I tried to avoid everything Google listed in the content guidelines on its program policy page. For the time being I have taken care of not having these on the blog:

  • Fake Traffic
  • Adult Content
  • Hacking materials
  • Violent content.

Read full list of program policies here. The good thing is my blog follows all the policies mentioned.


Let?s summarize all the things you need to get an Adsense account approved.

  1. Quality content
  2. Important pages
  3. Real Traffic
  4. Enough content [usually more than 30 blog posts]
  5. You need to be more than 18 Years old to apply.
  6. Around 5-6 months old blog. Though on the Eligibility page, 6 months is mentioned but you may apply even in the 4th or 5th month if your blog is having enough content which comply with its Policies. I got the approval in 5th

I had all the things on my blog which are required to have in order to be able to apply for Google Adsense. My blog doesn?t have anything that violates its Policies. Everything was good, so I applied and got approval within 1 week of applying.

My suggestion to all of you is to work on the blog first, make it better and read the Adsense policies before applying so that if there is anything wrong, you may correct it in prior.

Conclusion

That?s how I got my Adsense approved. I have followed the Adsense program policies and everything was happened positive.

Always focus on building a good blog and then think for monetization. I have worked first for 5 months and waited patiently, and the result is in front of you. Just in the very first attempt, I got an approved Adsense account.

Share your stories how you got your Adsense approved. I would love to hear from you.

  1. Hi Mukesh,

    I know how it feels to get the adsense account when you start blogging. I have similar story though I got approval for adsense with a blogspot blog. But the happiest moment was when I got the cheque of 10,000 INR as my first payment from Google Adsense.

    I am sure you will be minting so much cash from Google 🙂

  10. Congratulations on your AdSense Approval…What do you think is the minimum traffic we should have before applying for AdSense.

    • Thank you Surya for visiting this post. I get very less traffic currently so I would not say we need high traffic for AdSense approval, whatever traffic we get it should be from genuine traffic source and focus on quality and required pages like contact, privacy etc.

      Regards
      Mukesh
