    Will I get approved if I use NicheWebsite theme. Doesnt this theme violate Adsense TOS ?

    • Spencer Haws says:

      Sure you can get approved with the Niche Website Theme. The theme absolutely does NOT violate Adsense TOS. It was created for adsense…not sure why you would think its in violation. I would still recommend a unique logo though.

        i live in india im 19 years old i want to put ads on my yotube videos but before that i need to create ad sense account .Please can you say me which bank account i need ,they also ask for card like visa etc,so can you please explain me about payment account and card info thanks

      • george sneda says:

        I did all the stuff you show. gave them my bank account, my personal information, etc. I don’t have any articles on it because with 116 videos I didn’t think I needed it.
        I didn’t even see the google ad sense link button come up in my manager until a week ago and I’ve been doing videos for 4 months. don’t know how to email google to find out an answer as to yea or nay much less how to know when they’re going to approve me.

    • Ahmed Shawan says:

      I’ve written a complete guide of how you can apply for Google adsense and how exactly your application will be approved.

    Hi, this is a good idea to write a post about however, I think it’s a bit too general. I find myself in that category of people who have been rejected by Google AdSense (twice) and I don’t have any idea why. I am a beauty blogger, I think I have a cute site design, all the articles are original, I have a nice contact and about page, I state the sources for all materials I use for my posts, I don’t link to bad sites….and still they didn’t approve my application. And on top of that they don’t have any customer support to turn to for more help. I have already gave up on AdSense and put some affiliate links on my blog. But enough complaining. Cheers!

    • Spencer Haws says:

      Had you already used or applied for adsense with that site? I’m not sure how I could get more specific. This is literally step by step what needs to be done to apply and get approved. Sorry you’ve had issues.

      • Livia says:

        Thanks for replying Spencer, it was my first time that I applied for AdSense I think I’ll add a privacy policy page and try my luck again. Thanks anyways

        • Vlad says:

          Livia, as Spencer said – use site that was never used before. IF you keep re-applying with the same site, it’s possible that you always get rejected. you may consider creating a new website and once approved then you can place ads on both, including current rejected one.

          another thing that may have caused rejection is the big carousel on your website. Google does not like (and it is even against their terms of service) placing pictures, aminations or any other “pointers” next to their ads. So they may have rejected you simply because they were afraid that you will place their ad right next to that big carousel (moving featured slider)

          just my 2 cents…

    • Dan says:

      Livia, I noticed you don’t have any mention of having the privacy policy on your site.  I know plenty of people that got denied until this was in place.  You can also try adding a contact page, which also help some people I know get approved.  Good luck

      • Livia says:

        Hey Dan, thanks for taking a look at my site, I’ll try to add a privacy policy page and make my contact page nicer. Hopefully it works!

    • sci-ed says:


      On your contact page, “Weather” should be “Whether.”
      You never know..somebody (Google?) who goes to the contact page first, will see that first and it may affect the rest of their experience.

      Also, Google is very picky about the placing of other affiliate links. If anything smells like a bridge page they don’t like it. Also, in webmaster tools, do some statistics on the words on your site to see what Google thinks your site is about. You might be surprised. When I did this with one of my sites, I thought, “but that’s not what my site is about.” But then I remembered that the Google machine is not human. It can only judge your site by analyzing your words statistically.
      When you do the bar graph of word versus frequency, what is your most common word or words? Is that what you want? If not, write some specific but human-friendly content to fix it.

    • Somchoke says:

      I am biginner of Blogger , I also tired with google adsense too

  3. It is amazing how long this process can take and the frustrating part with Google is that you are unable to speak with anyone or get any customer support!

    I have a personal account and then applied for a second(gasps) account for my incorporation (as you have mentioned this is within their rules). It has been several months and I have re-applied and not heard back.

    Thanks for these guidelines and simplifying this process for a lot of people!


  4. Although I have not applied for Adsense, I do not plan to do so. After seeing so many folks get approved to just end up being banned without any prior notice, I do not want to end up falling victim to Google Adsense.

    It seems to me that it would be too easy to get approved, and rely too heavily on Adsense as the primary source of income. Personally, it’s just too risky.

    Great article Spencer!

    All the best,

  5. Chris says:

    Wow. It has been my problem for a long time and I think I applied most of your tips here but still..

    I discussed this problem of mine in my Flippa auction that I started 5 days ago (ending soon), if you don’t mind me Spencer posting a link here, I have 5 sites in this auction which are all in a sense ranking #1 in Google for great keywords but I wasn’t able really to capitalize on them because of the “absence of adsense” — I just want to know what I did wrong with these sites why I wasn’t accepted, if you or anyone can advise me, because I might as well not sell these sites if I can finally have an Adsense account. Here is the link: https://flippa.com/2839592-1-in-google-5-adsense-sites-cruise-niche-complete-autopilot. Please advise, if that’s okay with you.

  6. “Quick Tip! Remember, you CANNOT apply to Google Adsense using a site that has ever been used for Google Adsense before.”

    Did not know that, interesting tip. How did you find that out, is it explicitly stated in their TOS, or by experience, word of mouth?


    • Chris says:

      I did’nt know that too. What I thought was the option to reapply once your site is rejected is meant to let you improve your site (the same site) until it complies with Google Adsense’s quality guidelines

  7. Juan says:

    Hi Spencer! Great post! I read that you got banned from adsense and i felt bad, but now im reading that you have it back again. How did you do it? did you create a business entity? I feel really interested to know. Have a good day :D

  8. One critical item here, you have to have a disclaimer and privacy policy page(or pages) on your blog. Google will look for these, so have them before you apply. Inspite of taking care of al these instructions, google is unfair in issuing adsense accounts on geographical basis. I got a lot of information from here. thanks

  9. Hi spencer,

    here is more tips on getting approved by the Google adsense team.

    Use a site that has a PR 3 + and your chances of getting approved will be high.

    Add your Google Privacy , About Me and Contact page to the site .

    Do not use copied and Spun content on the site either. Makes sure your contents are already indexed by Google before you apply.

    You can also add a link to your Fb Fan page on the site. From personal experience , I know that Google Adsense will approve your application if the domain is old and has a high Pr



  10. Do it through blogspot for super fast and lenient approval.

  11. Any minimum number of visitors/page views per day for getting approved?

    I will apply soon.

  12. Rahul says:

    Hi Friends
    Please give feedback if i can use Adsense in site newstelecom.info

    I am not advertising my site but i actually want to know your precious advice.

    • Spencer Haws says:

      Yes, your site looks like one that could get approved to adsense. However, its always up to Google to make the final decision.

      • Ishfaq says:

        Hello All Friends! i have just made a website for live tv channels and i had bought a software for live tv channels including 70 live tv channels and i applied for google adsense account and they did not approved it now i have made my own theme using artisteer and its look good have add quite few channels i m wondering if i can resubmit the request for google adsense will it get approved? please have a look it my site and tell me what i need to do more . waiting for experts advice Thank You.

  13. SKS says:

    I just started a blog 72-hours ago: http://gotevidence.blogspot.com/

    I applied for Google Adsense the day I started blogging and 24-hours later got an automated rejection e-mail. It doesn’t specify what criteria I don’t meet, nor does it state what I need to do to be accepted. I included the e-mail below. Any advice?

    application, our specialists have found that it does not meet our program

  14. henry says:

    I have to apply everything you guys have said here. please about getting my site indexed how can i make that happen?

  15. Hi, as you can see my website offers freebies gathered all along the web. With a proper attribution that links directly to the creators. But i wonder if i can apply for adsense with this kind of website? I don’t do articles which i think impossible to get adsense approval. Would you help me by answering this ignorant question of mine? would really appreciate it.


  16. Ram says:

    Nice post. I think this will really help me get my adsense approved.

  17. Selima Garris says:

    Hi! I applied to google adsense got denied. I have two questions. Can I start a new blog to get approval for? Also can I have a tab for my home business? Or is that against Google rules? My blog is just starting so no traffic. So I think that is why I was denied. Selima

  18. Dina says:

    Hello Spencer,

    This is a great post as I’m gonna use Adsense. But, I have some issue about it. My brother used to use Adsense, but he got banned. Therefore, could I apply for Adsense again with the same IP? Does Google must send the physical mail to my address? Because my country national post service is really bad, so I’ve always lost the mail which the post men won’t deliver to me.


  19. Tan says:

    If my site talking about diarrhea with some diarrhea photos, is this against adsense policy and result of disapproved my application?

    • Spencer Haws says:

      lol, I don’t know about that one. Maybe the photos are? but I doubt the text is. my guess is that your application was denied for a different reason, but unfortunately, I don’t know for sure.

  24. john says:

    i will planing to apply only i got 1500+ unique Daily.

  25. cindi says:

    I dont’ like that google does not put some of this information in it’s program policies. I have tried twice now with two different blogs to get approved and never knew there was a privacy policy I needed. I am new to this and am learning a lot, but there is a lot of criteria not explained when starting out. I really have a niche, but not one that is quite obvious to google’s machine. And how do I find out if I am indexed through google? I haven’t been banned that I know of, but have applied once with this account. I really enjoy writing on this blog and hope to continue, but from what you are saying it may be best to start another one. And what keeps you from getting banned? If people are getting banned easily I would like to not make those mistakes.

Till then I had left doing work on my website because there is not profit of doing work if I don’t get earning from this website. Reply soon waiting for your reply

  30. When you say “you cannot do adsense on a site you’ve never used adsense with before” what does that mean? Wouldn’t that mean you could never get adsense on a site? I’m a bit confused.

  31. Mubi Rana says:

  37. henry says:

    Hi author nice post… I have aproblem, I have been applying for adsense for over a year, and my site had over 700 posts but I get disapproved, so I have (Deleted all my post and I started all over, but yet no approval still I get temporarily approved but get a warning later my site doesn’t comply with policies.. Please check my site to see what is wrong http://ho9ja.com thanks in advance.

    • Spencer Haws says:

      Its possible that all the traffic is coming from a country where there are not many ads – or for some other reason Google doesn’t want it in their program. I would perhaps try Media.net.

  38. jon says:

    I’ve been waiting now for months to get my site ‘reviewed’ by google. But as I’ve had no feed back I’m unsure if that is what is required. Any way of poking google to take a look? Being rejected is better then not knowing what is going on.
    Cheers for the post.

  39. Denzil says:

    Interesting article. I don’t have a privacy policy page on my blog. Is it really necessary for a blog site? Anyway, when they decline, Adsense, and say that you have insufficient content, just how much is the minimum requirement?

    Oh, and I got my replies within 12 hours from Google, saying my account is declined.

  40. Shola says:

    Nice article. had me glued to my screen for a while but it was worth it.

    Initially when i launched my site i got approved by Google adsense however something happened a few weeks after and ever since then it’s been declined.
    The last reason i got “Issues:
    – Site does not comply with Google policies”
    ‘d really appreciate any tip to get this fixed once and for all

  41. Claudia says:

    HI Spencer,
    I was wondering does the site i apply to adsense with needs to have traffic coming?
    Cause i just built a site, with all the criteria you mentioned above and i’m not sure if i should start link building first and rank in google before i apply to adsense. What do you think? Did you have traffic coming on the sites you applied with when you got approved?

  42. Jaimin says:

    How much website traffic need to apply to Google Adsence ? is they traffic must come from search engine only ?

  43. what should be the information added in contact me page like my email etc.

  44. naresh says:

  45. GeorgeM says:

    Hello Spencer,
    I do have one question,
    I want to start one site and the thing is the name of the domain that i want for the site is already taken. I am taking about a .com here.
    If i will chose the same name but with different extension (.info, .net, .org and so on ) the site will still be ok for a google adsense account?
    Thanks a lot !

  46. Spencer do you think my site mrstore.net will get approved by google adsense

    thank you

  47. mohan says:

  53. ban yen sao says:

    I’ve applied more than 10 times and fail all .maybe my domain only 9 month age .Can anyone plz tell me why am i ? thanks so much .

  54. I have a blog I started in April 2013. People say blogs created in Asia should be at least 6 mos. old before applying Adsense. I do not think it’s true. I am from the Philippines with a blog containing about 14 posts. I applied to Adsense on June 12 2013 ( 2 days ago )…Surprisingly, my account is now under review and the cool thing is I have accessed the Adsense interface and they let me create ads and use them on my site. However, it’s not final yet I am still waiting for the final approval. I have not gotten any rejection notice from them.

  55. The author on this blog is correct. You should have a privacy policy, a disclaimer, a sitemap, your own domain name and a premium theme at least. You should be fine if you follow his advice…My blog I started in April 2013, http://www.kindtrepreneur.me was submitted to Adsense last June 12 and got reviewed. Now, I have access to Adsense.

  56. Mike L. says:

    The Google Privacy policy. The link you provided is what I need to put on my site? I’m just making sure I understand correctly. My Privacy Policy. It contains links so I shouldn’t not copy and paste, correct? I’m a new guy, so thanks for the info. I have learned a lot from this site, so thank you. Mike L

  57. Jennifer B. says:

    Very good article! This explains the process for the AdSense Program perfectly, I just recently submitted my site which is only about a month old, http://itschoolfinder.com, I received the blank ads after 24 hours or so and within a week I was approved! My site does not generate too much traffic yet but I can say for sure that having the privacy policy, about page and contact is something that helps your chances. My question is, does anyone know if having AdSense helps with generating traffic?

  58. jonas says:

    Thanks for great blog.
    This might have been covered somewhere ells but I just haven’t found the answer
    Can you have say both Google adsense and the Amazon affiliate ads on the same page?

  59. irfanali says:

    I have been waiting for my application to be completely reviewed.Thanks for the info,it will help newbies like us to get application approve faster.

    P.S:Google is being strict these days on content publishers from ASIAN countries

  60. Brother this is very helpful to me.1 week ago in june,2013 I designed http://tutormanbd.hostzi.com this websites.And I

    wanted to have google add from addsense .Now I understant if I make application for my websites I will be penalized.
    Oh,I have a question the above domain is a free domain.But I think this websites will be very useful in
    my region.Will google acccept me after 6 months though it is not a pure domain . . . .

  61. Hi Spencer,

    I would say that what you had posted was great!

    Just started blogging on blogspot and I had applied for Google AdSense on June 20th and till now, there is this red banner which says that my content is still under review.

    Had tried reading other people’s “hint” and most of theirs have very similar points to what you had pointed out. Apart from the “Contact” page.

    My website had lack the “Contact” page and I have just added it it.

    Would be glad if you could help me by visiting my website and give me some pointers on improving it to reduce the chance of getting my application rejected.

    Also, how long usually does Google takes to approve the application?

    Thank you.

    Hi Spencer, can u please review my site, is it suitable for adsense or not , i have not applied yet for adsense also wanted to complete it till October as my domain is just 3 month old ………..thanks in advance …

  63. karkphan says:

    Could you help? Thanks!

  64. bossything says:

    hi spencer, just want to say thanks for this post, it really helped me! i also listened to the first podcast you did on itunes and your story was extremely interesting, you are very articulate and explained everything so well. i really enjoyed it! inpsiring stuff, thanks :))

  65. Hi Spencer,
    From reading some of these replies and from your article’s “tone”, I must ask- Is it really that difficult to get approved?

    My circumstances are different of course, but for me, it was one of the easiest things.

    I registered my first site a few weeks ago and due to my naivety, I suppose, I went ahead and applied for an Adsense account while I had a freshly installed TwentyTwelve theme with only a “Privacy Policy” page- apart from the homepage(which still had the “Mr. WordPress” comment on it). They replied within 30 minutes and asked me to add the adsense code and within 4 hours I got accepted. As I said- a freshly installed theme(a few minutes old) and only a “Privacy Policy”, with no title- except the name of my site and the default -“Just another WordPress Site”- title below my sitename.

    I guess I was extremely lucky :)
    Perhaps the person who reviewed my application, just didn’t bother(due to this, I believe you need to keep on applying until you hit a cool dude somewhere in google).

    Another thing- I got indexed within 2 days after adding my content and one article reached the 2nd page within 3/4 days. So far I’ve had a breeze of niche melarkey, but maybe it’s because I also just “breezed through” this whole thing. There’s a lot of things that I’ve done half-arsed, but I’ll still get to that, yet I’ve already earned about ~$90.00 from that site(Adsense + Affiliation) and it’s been basically a month since I decided to take “the big leap”.

    Thanks again for all the valuable information you’re sharing with us all! You gave me belief!

    Hi Spencer,

    A quick question which I hope you could clarify for me

    When you applied for your Adsense Business account, when entering the “Person to contact/Webmaster” name, did you use a different name to the one you had used on your original banned account?

    Thank you

  75. Peter says:

    …. also, when applying for a Business Account (having add a personal account banned) do you have any thoughts about whether the website being offered for consideration has to have anything to do with the Business name in any way – i.e. does it ‘have’ to be a business website for that business.

    I understand that adsense ads can be placed on other websites after acceptance back into absense but I am unclear about the requirements of the site being offered in the application.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  77. Thanks for the guide. Well.. in my experience I was too hard to get my first adsense account. After I became a publisher for about six month then my account got banned with no any real reason. I have no idea, because I thought I ddn’t break any adsense rule. You may explain me. Thanks

    my web site and tell me can I apply the google adsense?

  81. Vipin Soni says:

    hey Spencer,
    I had applied for google adsense many times from past 2 years from many sites with different niche. Is there any possibility that they are not accepting because i tried too many times (from different email ids). Am i blacklisted?
    please help, i am confused

  82. I am experiencing the issue where Google has put an amount into my bank account but the verification process says that the amount is incorrect.
    I’m not an idiot, and perfectly capable of typing 0.41 without a mistake. I only have one deposit from Google, so there is not an issue there.
    Please can someone help me on what to do to resolve this problem?

  83. Razak Gory says:

    Hey Spencer, you wrote a great and usefull article realy It’s very helpful for me. i have created a education blog [ EduRise]. i w’ll go with your tips when my domain age 6 month,

    thank you for this Awesome tips :)

  84. hey Spencer plzz give m the reply dude… I need to help u….

  85. Hanna says:

    Hi Spencer.. I feel like an idiot asking this but, if my blog is hosted by wordpress, do I need to purchase the domain name before I can use adsense?

    • Spencer Haws says:

      Not sure how hosted wordpress works actually. I only use the self-hosted version of WordPress. I’m pretty sure that you need your own domain and hosting account – don’t think you can have adsense on a wordpress.com site.

  86. tj says:

    I think it is absurd after being with google adsense for almost as long as it started that they are forcing users to provide them with bank account information. A check is a whole lot more secure and its not like they have to put much effort in sending one via their automated system.

  87. Vishal says:

    Hi , this is vishal from india .
    i created a website using wordpress 3 months back and i m updating it regularly , i have also checked that i have no copied content on my website .
    i just wanted to ask how is my website and is there any time period after which u can apply for adsense ???

  88. somya says:

    how solve this problem “Site does not comply with Google policies”
    Plz you help me please..

  89. shekhar says:

    i read every line of this article and i know something new about adsense. i wnat to know about the priority posts which Google wants like unique content, not copied, words count and all that related to a good article.

  90. mukul kumar says:

    First of all this is an excellent article. After reading your post I added About, Contact and Privacy Page to my blog and I also added a new theme to my blog and then applied to adsense. But my application got rejected on second review stating that “Site does not comply with Google policies”.
    Please, If you may have time to take a look at my blog and give me your valuable suggestion if any.

  91. Thanks for this wonderful post on helping adsense newbies out there.

    I never knew it was this difficult and all the comments asking for their blog to be checked. There wasn’t any sweat in my blog getting adsense approval and if all the steps mentioned are well implemented, then approval won’t be a problem.

    This is on problem folks have, instead of complying with adsense policy and they do is just to apply and they later fell depressed when their application is declined.
    Well good tips you got here Spencer, I hope they implement it.

  92. Hey Bro I upload privacy and policy on our site. So plzzz see my web site and tell m, can I apply the google adsence or not? plzz give me the solution and reply as soon as possible..
    Thanx Spencer…

  93. Anand says:

But as per policies I’m not using any others contents, no images from other site, around 100 post, daily traffic as per webmaster around 1000, around 7 months older.

  96. Ifeanyi says:

  97. Ifeanyi says:

  98. After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added
    I receive four emails with the same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?

  99. Sanjeev says:

    Getting adsense approved is becoming harder and harder. My previous site got approved very quickly but this time, things are going hard.

  100. Hi, i have a query. Does google approve the price comparison websites for google adsense account? I have a price comparison website http://www.price-hunt.com. I had applied for google adsense account 2 months back but got rejected. Please guide me how can i get approval. I have read on internet forums that google does not approve price comparison websites for its adsense account due to lack of original content. But there are many price compariosn websites like pricedekho etc. who are already having approved adsense account. Please help me.

  101. rais1212 says:

    My application for adsense was disapproved via this message:


    – Site does not comply with Google policies

    Further detail:

    Site does not comply with Google policies: We’re unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies (http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=48182,https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/topic.py?topic=1271507) or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines (http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769). It’s our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this criteria.

    Here are some recommendations to help you improve the user experience on your site and comply with AdSense criteria:
    – It’s important for sites displaying Google ads to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
    – Don’t place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
    – Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking.

  102. Hello Spencer I’m currently building a forum, I want to monetize it through Google Adsense, do they approve forums???

  103. Abid Omar says:

    My Website abcdblogging temporarily approved for adsense. But, after placing the code the disapprove it. Can i submit to adsense again?

  104. Logan says:

    How’s it going Spencer? Really appreciate the great info and I’m planning on following to the T. I was just wondering though if there was a certain number of weeks or months that your website had to be up in order to be approved. On there website it says:

    “Have you owned your site for 6 months? In some locations, including China and India, we require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months. We’ve taken this step to ensure the quality of our advertising network and protect the interests of our advertisers and existing publishers.”

    Not sure if this is other countries outside the US. I lived in the US by the way.

  105. driedfruit says:

    Hi ! Spencer,
    Great info you have shared with us.. thank you for your helpful work…I just applied for the adsense more than 4 times but google rejected my site telling “google policies” issues violation…I just worked hard to get approved…but seems very tough….my website is http://www.myonevision.com. Any idea about it ??
    Thanks in advance

  106. Lowell says:

    Unfortunately, you also need traffic. No matter how great your site is, if your traffic only trickles in, then you won’t get approved. To Google, the amount of traffic you get (and yes, it needs to be quality traffic) is as important as your content. A site with just a few hundred hits a month won’t due. This is my experience but I could be wrong.

    I have a website that serves Google search… about 25,000 users a day doing multiple search each. I lost my account because of the content (and not sure which of my sites was in question). If anyone has an Adsense account that is not making much money, I’d like to partner to serve search only.

  107. Olga says:

    I wasn’t approved because they required to insert a code into my page to prove that I own the website, and then send them the url with the code. However, they don’t accept this url because it doesn’t end with the primary address, such as .com! They don’t know themselves what they want! I will make a direct contact with companies and place their ads not to bother with google’s complications…

  108. This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  109. eagleeye says:


    Can we use adsense for maps in our free file transferring website?

    We are monitoring the transfers closely, but how to show this to adsense?

  110. Ugochi says:

    Hi Spencer,
    I hope you will find the time to reply me please. You mentioned that Google will not approve a site that has been declined before. I run only one blog, now what should I do?
    I really want to work with them, please advice me.

  111. thanks alot to share all information about how to apply adsense to get approved. i hope it will help for getting apporved.

  112. TecGyan says:

    Very informative post…

  113. Omkar says:

    I submitted my new website http://www.diyconservation.org . I have more than 40 pages and apart from some pages such as contact us and about us etc all have near or over 500 words in text. 90% of the photos are original and belong to me, a few are from the public domain. Also as far as uniqueness is concerned, I can say that I have not found any other website on the internet that explains and teaches conservation techniques to laymen.
    I do not know why I have been rejected at the very first stage within 2 hours of the site name being submitted.
    Can anyone please tell me what I’m doing wrong? The standard insufficient content reasons given by google do not seem to be true in my opinion.
    Thank you for your time.

  114. Ritesh Saini says:

    Hi Spencer. I applied for AdSense two times. They approve my account after first step verification but after second step verification I get disapproved.
    They notified me by mail which contained this “Site does not comply with Google policies”. Please suggest me for any change in my blog I have to made to get permanent approval.

  115. rukal says:

    Please do tell me if you know it will be very great :)
    BTW Nice Article

  120. Hi Spencer, I have a complicated issue and I’d be thankful if you could help me with it.

    I signed up on Adsense with my WordPress.com site and got half-approved, I was able to place blank ads only, I waited for about 3 weeks without the approval process being completed. Then realized that Adsense won’t work with WordPress.com sites.

    So i moved to WordPress.org and started all over, my concern is will the approval process get completed or I have to resubmit the application again?

    Also I was thinking of canceling my Adsense account and create another one with the same website but of course using a different email.

  121. rus says:

    Hi. I was just confused. I have been researching about adsense for more than 2 years but I don’t have any account.

    the main reason? I am afraid that I might violate a rule and they’ll put me to prison.

    Well, before I create my own adsense, I wanted to know first whether their was a person that violated a rule after he has been paid?

    Have you heard someone that has been put into prison because of this???

    haha. I know this question is funny but I am just afraid to violate any rule.

    • Spencer Haws says:

      No, you won’t go to prison for violating Google’s rules…unless you break the law of course :)

      • rus says:

        Ohh. haha. well, to be honest with you, I registered an account with adsense before and luckily I was approved.
        Unluckily, my account got disabled due to invalid clicks. I don’t know what happened behind it. But I think I’ve done one thing that is wrong. I was at school one day and I used the computer in the school. I open my blog to see how it looks in other people’s computer. As I view it I got interested with an ad coz the ad shows something relevant to my course that time. Well, I clicked it. that was my mistake. I send an appeal to the adsense saying these things 1 day ago. Well, 24 hours had passed but they did not send a reply. I think I don’t have a chance anymore.

  132. So if you got adsense on old sites why are there no AdSense ads here?

    Can you use a new adsense on an old site that gets an OK in sandbos ban check sites?

  133. Milan says:

    Can you tell me is there a minimum number of visitors a web page must have before applying for adsense?

  134. Ninn says:

    thank you very much for this article! it’s really helpful! However, I’d like to ask you a question regarding to Adsense. I have my account confirmed few days ago. An ad has temporarily appeared but when I click my Adsense Dashboard, it says that Adsense crawler is unable to crawl my site, is there any way to solve this? I’m new and don’t really understand about how to make Adsense crawler crawls my page :(

    sorry if my question is somehow out of topic but I hope you don’t mind to help give me some advice.

    thank you very much,

  137. thanks admin really nice and helpfull post for all newbies that are in blogging…

    love to read this post again and again.. thanks for sharing your knowledge :)

    but i am using my brother’s adsence account, and i think we can use anyone’s adsence account on our blog/website and there is no issue from adsence team…

    you can see its working fine here http://www.smartweb.com.pk .

    so if someone’s account was not approved ,, then you can use any one’s account if your friend or any family member have it. no need to worry about.
