What is Google AdSense?
First, let’s go over what AdSense actually is. Essentially, it’s an ad network owned and operated by Google. This company employs an impression based payment model, where publishers are paid whenever someone sees one of their ads. The more impressions (or views) a website receives, the higher its value becomes to advertisers—and therefore its earnings potential as well. In order for you to participate in their program, however, you first have to get approved.
Why Would I Want To Use Google AdSense?
One of your biggest goals with any website is likely earning an income from it. If you aren’t monetizing a site, then there’s little point in keeping it up, right? AdSense is one of those tried-and-true ways to make money from a site that requires very little maintenance once you set it up. In short, you sign up for an account, add a code to your site, Google shows relevant ads based on topics related to your content which generate income for each click on them. Easy enough! That said, getting started isn’t quite simple… because getting approved by Google can take a bit longer than expected. Let’s talk about why it is so and what you can do about it!
Do I have The Right Content For My Blog?
Before you can even think about getting approval for your AdSense ads, make sure that your blog has good quality content. After all, you don’t want Google to show advertisements on a blank or poorly-written page! Having fresh and relevant content on your site will help convince Google that your website is a quality one — which is exactly what you need if you want to get approved for AdSense. Remember: Your application will likely be automatically rejected if it doesn’t have high-quality content on it.
Do I Have A Website That Supports This Content?
The key question you want to ask yourself before starting a new business is whether or not you have a viable product. If your product is still just an idea, that’s OK – maybe it’s time for some research. It doesn’t matter how great your plan is if there isn’t anyone out there looking for what you have to offer. Luckily, there are plenty of ways online you can learn more about your potential customers and find out if they’re even interested in what you do at all. Sites like Alteevity make it easy to create simple surveys with questions that uncover basic demographics, product interests, and more. Don’t know where to start? Try asking people if they’d be willing to pay for your product or service. You will be surprised by what you find!
What Kind Of Traffic Do I Get On My Site?
You’ll need to have your traffic info ready before you get started. It’s not possible for Google to review your application if it has little or no information on what kind of traffic you bring. To apply, check out Google’s help page on getting Google AdSense approval. The first question reads How do I know if my website is suitable? The next two ask you how much traffic your site gets and what kind of content it has (text, images, etc.). You can enter up to three websites you plan on using with AdSense once you get approval, so start compiling that information too.

Does My Site Have A Strong Design?
Think about your site’s design. Is it functional? Does it make sense? Does it have an information hierarchy? If you don’t feel confident, hire a designer or at least find someone who can provide some objective feedback. Your best bet is going to be sites like Fiverr or Upwork and asking people who specialize in web design. Otherwise, go through your homepage and think about every element there. If you can’t describe what each element does, then take it off your page! You want everything that’s on your page contributing directly to conversions (i.e., money coming into your pocket). A cluttered homepage will get you nowhere fast.
What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Getting AdSense Approval?
The most common questions that are asked about getting approved for AdSense are how much traffic one needs, and how many ads can be put up. The short answer is 100 unique views per day (vpd) and 2-3 ad units per page. You’ll need a ratio of 1.25 pages with ads to every page without ads. For example, if you have 5 articles on your website you should have 5 pages with a sidebar ad or header ad.
Final Thoughts And Conclusion
Getting Google AdSense approval can take anywhere from hours to weeks. That’s why it’s important that you don’t just focus on getting approved—you should also work on creating a site worthy of approval. If you do, getting approval becomes much easier, and as a result, monetizing your website will be smoother once you get approved. Here are some final thoughts and conclusions based on our research
