Google Adsense

Hi, this is my first post on comluv and I am writing about Google Adsense. You start a blog for just passing the free time or getting the attention on the internet, but if it also give you some Monetary Gain as well. Hence you start looking for an ad agency to give you some ad material. You found out Google Adsense and you thought now I can make money easily. But after some days of applying you got rejected why ?

Google Adsense is the largest ad agency in the world. That is why every blogger and webmaster are running after them that has made very difficult to get accepted by Google Adsense for new blogger. Now I have come with some basic guidelines that might lead you to get accepted by adsense. So before applying on adsense make sure that you are following all the guidelines listed below.

10 Precaution that should be taken before applying to Google Adsense

1. About Page :

An about page is very important for a blog. Not that will make your relationship better with your better but it will also help new readers to know what is your blog is about. When you apply for Google Adsense make sure you have created a about page and have given a link to it in the primary navigational menu. Without this page you will have zero chance of being accepted, so make sure you have written  a good description of you and your blog and represented it on the primary navigational menu.

2. Privacy policy :

This is one of the main reason that fails most the new blogger by accepted in the Google Adsense. Privacy policy is a description that describe to your readers that what are the personal information about them you are storing. Most of the people thinks that what is the need of having a privacy policy on a blog.

But they are wrong, you should have a privacy policy. And it costs nothing and will only take 5-10 minutes with an online privacy policy generator tool. So make sure you have a privacy policy when applying for Google Adsense. You can create a privacy policy from trust guard for free.

3. Number of posts :

I have seen many blogger who got rejected because Google said that you don’t have enough content to generate ads. Now Google has not provided any fix number of posts which will qualified for this. For my calculation if you have 60 posts with an average of 700 words per post, then it will be enough for Google Adsense. So make sure you got at least 60 posts before applying for Google Adsense.

4. Contact us Page :

It is very important that you should provide a contact us page on your blog. Most of the premium themes has a template for giving a contact us page. Just you have to choose the contact us page template while creating a new page. If you do not have a premium theme or your theme doesn’t provide you a contact us page then you can use the plugin like contact form 7 for creating a contact us page. If that’s also more of work then leave a email id there and make sure the comment tab is open on that page. So the reader can contact you by that email or by commenting on that page as well. So before applying for Google Adsense create a contact us page and before applying please test it one time.

5. Blog Design :

Your site or blog’s design play a very important role while applying for Google Adsense. If you a irregular structure then you have zero probability of getting accepted by Google Adsense. But why a good design is necessary ?

A good design doesn’t means that you have good pictures or good animation from CSS or Javascript. A good design means you must have a clear navigational menu through which you can link to any post of the blog. Your menu must show all the main categories and primary pages such as Home, About us, Privacy Policy etc. If you do not have a good navigational menu than you will be rejected because you didn’t follow the Google Webmaster Guidelines.

6. Content Type :

Now be aware what are you writing, Google Adsense do not accept blogs which have illegal, Porn or adult, drugs related content etc. I think you have know about adult or drugs related content but let me give you some more explanation about “Illegal Material” . Here illegal material can be articles which

  • Provide hacking of facebook or twitter accounts.
  • Provide a way or tutorial to create a bomb.
  • Provide a way to crack a game or an app.
  • Provide a tutorial or a way to download You Tube Videos.

There are things which I thought was illegal but it wasn’t. Those things are tutorial on how to Jailbreak or root a smartphone etc. So make sure before applying on Google  Adsense that you doesn’t have these types of materials.

7. Name And Email Verification :

While submitting an application to Google adsense make sure you have written all of your details correctly. Its because if you found of providing wrong info about you then your account can be rejected and if approved then it will be banned after some time.

8. Top Level Domain For Google Adsense :

Those days are over when Google Adsense accepts those blogs which have their blogs on blogspot or on wordpress. For getting accepted into the Google Adsense you have to spend some money and have to buy a Top Level Domain name such .com, So don’t try for Google Adsense if you are still on Blogspot or wordpress sublevel domains.

9. Paid Traffic or Traffic from Traffic Exchange Sites :

You are getting very high traffic after starting a blog because you bought some traffic from a traffic exchange site. Then beware Google hates paid traffic, you should never buy traffic because it won’t give you any benefit. Now to overcome this factor “Never apply for Google Adsense before 6 months“. So in six month, if you work properly you will have a good traffic and then apply for Google Adsense.

10. Copyrighted images or Plagiarism Content :

If you have done plagiarism on some post then delete those post remove that content before applying for Google Adsense. You can check the for plagiarism with some online tools such as Copyscape.

Now images tells is necessary to describe the content or the post. So you searched the Google and got the images. But before using the images first check is they having a “Creative Common License” or not. So for those images you used that doesn’t have a Creative Common License, you have to remove them. Don’t bother to apply without removing them because your application will be discarded saying that it is doing the “Copyright Infringement” .

So that’s all I have to say on the precautions of Google Adsense, if I left something out then please comment below.


  1. Hello Rohit Sharma,

    A new blogger or website owner should always be aware of the Google Adsense TOS. Being banned for the lack of knowledge happens to many newcomers.

    And far as images goes, Google will only ask you to remove images if it’s been reported by the actual owner of the image. People use other copyright images all the time, it’s all about it being reported to the right person. Lets say someone has a partnership with NIKE or Jordan, and has permission to use copyrighted images, then Google won’t harass you about it, it’s all about verification.

    Yes, “.com” is a winner with Google Adsense. It lets them know how serious you are with your website.

    People should always keep new content on their site, old contact will result in the loss of rank, and ads being displayed on the page.

    Great post, love it.

  2. Thanks Wright, for your gratitude !
    But I saw some of the sites who’s application is rejected due to the images. Google will ask you to remove the image if your application is accepted. Otherwise it will only say that your application is rejected due to the “Copyright Infringement” .

  3. Hi Rohit,

    You mentioned some really essential points here, but I guess usage of copyright images with permission is very common and many new bloggers do this mistake and keep wondering why their blog isn’t getting Google Adsense approved.

  4. Hello Pankaj,

    You are absolutely right the new bloggers doesn’t have any idea about the copyright images. So that made their work very tough to find the images with Creative Common License.

  6. Dinesh Sharma says:

    Never Apply for Google Adsense if you don’t have good traffic. First get a huge traffic then apply. Avoid adding other advertisements till got adsense approval. and Content is must to approve adsense so Don’t use copy or paste content.

  7. Hello Rohit,

    Your very first entry on Comluv is supremely useful…for which blogger does not appreciate more money doing what he/she already loves?

    From my discovery however, when one blogs for passion and not the bucks, the bucks naturally finds one and making money blogging becomes a piece of cake!

  13. Nice post Rohit Sharma,
    Before applying to Google Adsense the precautions must be taken. And I think all the points you have told here are enough. If you are an Indian blogger you must wait for 6 months before applying. Copyrighted content is the major problem.

  14. Hi Rohit,

    Adsense precautions tips are useful. These tips are great and like to share these tips with my friends.
    Thank you for sharing these tips…:)

  15. You are right about the conditions of Google for any blog to provide ad. Many blogger try to manipulate Google by getting paid links to increase there ranking but Google doesn’t provide ad to such kind of blogs. There is also a specific reason for many blogs due to which they don’t get ad from Google AdSense and that is poor quality content. Bloggers just fill up their blog with extra material which effects a lot to their blog. Thanks for sharing your views. I t will help many bloggers to get some idea about Google policies.

  18. Hello Nitin,
    I checked out your site and find out that its still running on blogpsot.com domain. For getting approved by Google Adsense first you have to buy a premium high level domain such as .com and then wait for 6 months. After that your blog will be accepted.
    Hope this will help you.

      There are two things you can’t be certain of
      first is a Girl’s Mind
      And second is Google’s policy, rules and alogorithms.
      They changes over the night so if that works for you that’s good but all the things which are written is taken from Google Policy of Adsense so for new bloggers all the things are must.

    Hello.Thanx for sharing this brand new information.Google has made plenty of changes recently and these factors are really good to know.In blogger when you try to apply for adsense it says just few countries like China must have a blog older then 6 months to apply for adsense.Is it just for some countries,or is it for every new blog that comes up?

  25. Yes, Using copyrighted images on site leads to rejection of Adsense application. I applied for adsense nearly 3 times for my site. And the third time I checked and changed few images on my site and the next application of mine got approved. So, it is must to check images.

  26. Meridith says:

    Thanks for this post, it was really informative. I’m a new blogger and I’ve been considering AdSense and becoming an affiliate marketer. I never even thought about the images, so now I have to go back and check my blog.

  27. Hello ROhit, thats a Nice writeup, but I would like to add a bit in it…

    if we apply through blogspot then all we gona get is hosted adsense which cant be used on any other custom url.

    Paid traffic is a big no no… specially for adsense, all we need to do is write informative content which might be useful for others and get it ranked is the best part…

    I think Adsense accounts are still approved for blogspot (blogger) domains, contrary to what is mentioned in this article.

  29. Seems like its very easy to get a hosted account now a days. But one of friend who has been blogging through a blogger blog got approved for adsense, yeah full account. He has been updating that blog for the last 7 or 8 months.

  38. Google AdSense is undoubtedly the easiest way to make money online and most of the times new bloggers/website owners are not sure as when is the right time to apply.

    I also think that your website/blog must be six months old to get AdSense account approval is not true. Some website owners get approved before than that time period. Maybe it is to do with the quality and quantity of content your site has.

  49. Well, These points are very important to get Adsense account, but these days Google is giving away accounts much easier then before. Although everyone can’t get it. My many friends got Adsense accounts with 10 day old blogs with 5 posts, but I have few clients are not getting approval event with 1 year old blog. So, it depends on luck. But still we can follow these rules and regulations to get Google adsense approval.
