I am writing this Google AdSense Quick Approval Guide, especially for the newbie bloggers.
But getting approval for the program is really difficult especially for the newbie bloggers.
In this post, I will guide you to get Google AdSense Approval fast in a step-by-step process.
Points to Note About Google AdSense Program:
Before we proceed directly to the main topic of this post, please note the following points about Google AdSense.
- Blogs from a few countries like India, China, etc take a minimum of 6 months old domain name for getting AdSense approval from Google. However, there are some exceptions.
- According to Satish Kumar from SEO Siren, Google approves only 3 accounts out of 1000 applications. Be prepared for that.
- Self-Host Your Blog if you are a WordPress Blogger before applying for AdSense.
- It may take a few months to earn your first $100 from AdSense.
Step-1: Make Your Blog AdSense Friendly:
The first step towards getting the AdSense Approval is to make your blog AdSense Friendly.
AdSense Friendly Blog here refers to such blogs in which Ads by Google can be shown seamlessly.
To make your blog AdSense friendly, do the following:
- Use a Professional and AdSense Ready Theme for your blog.
- Make your blog front-end extremely Clean, Clutter-Free and Appealing.
- Make sure to host your blog with a reliable hosting company for optimum performance.
- Use a Mobile-Friendly Responsive Theme for your blog.
If you observe this blog carefully, you will find everything mentioned above to make your blog AdSense Friendly by design.

Step-2: Make Your Content Ready for Google:
The Content of your blog is the Real King.
You can not expect anything good with Poor Content.
So you have to improve your content quality first.
To improve it, you can keep the following points in mind:
- Your content must be Original.
- Your content must be Reader Friendly.
- Your content must Add Some Real Values to the Topic.
- Your content must comply with Google AdSense Policy.
- You must not do anything that can harm the blogosphere.
If you keep the above points in your blogging, you will find a drastic improvement in your content quality.
Since quality content is the lifeline of your blog, you should be extremely careful while creating each and every piece of content.
Step-3: Create a Few Must Have Pages:
It is not a brainer that Google will be interested to know the person/company behind a blog before giving the AdSense Approval to it.
So be ready for that and help Google to identify you/your company easily.
The conventional (and recommended) method for doing so is to make sure that your blog has a few must have pages clearly visible in it.
The pages are:
- About Page: Contains information about you and your business.
- Contact Page: Contains your contact information.
- T&C Page: Contains information about Terms and Conditions of using your blog.
You can, however, add other pages as per your requirement.

Step-4: Publish Recommended Quantity of Content:
This one can be tricky.
Many newbie bloggers wonder how many posts are required to publish on their blogs before applying for the AdSense.
There is no concrete answer for this question as Google did not publish such a guideline for the same so far.
And also, we have noticed that Google rejected AdSense Application for several blogs having 200-300 posts on them and approved blogs having only 30-40 posts.
So I recommend you to:
- Publish at least 30-40 high quality, genuine posts.
- Try to keep an equal number of posts under each category.
- Publish your posts at a regular interval.
- Keep your old posts always updated.
Pro Tip-1: Try to keep the number of categories minimum to manage Category/Post ratio better.
Pro Tip-2: Try to publish your posts at least 3 times a week.
Step-5: Eliminating Other Monetization Methods:
Many newbie bloggers make this mistake.
They signup with various content monetization programs in order to make money fast from their blogs.
While this approach is not bad for some online advertisements players, but Google does not like it. Period.
So it is a safer (and recommended) approach to
You can do this by eliminating all 3rd Party Advertising Codes from your blog.
Yes. All 3rd Party Advertising Codes.
Google does not like to share its space with its competitors.
Never have a hard-feelings Google for this.
Google does this to safeguard its advertisers’ interest and to improve their ROI.

In this step, I am about to talk about some technical Oops.
1. Google Analytics Codes:

3. Sitemap Page:
If you want to make your Application for AdSense stronger, you should include a custom-made “Sitemap Page” in your blog.

This one is vital.
You should include a “Robots.Txt” file on your blog.
I will publish a detailed tutorial on how to generate Robots.Txt File for your blog soon and update this article with the appropriate link.
5. Alexa Rank:
This one is a bit controversial.
A few bloggers think it is useless in 2017 while many reputed bloggers invest thousands of dollar to improve their Alexa Rankings.
I think you should set a target to keep your Alexa Rank anywhere under at least 400K.

Step-7: A Few Additional Things to Consider:
In order to get the approval for Google AdSense, you should consider a few more things before applying for the same.
1. Domain Age:
Your blog should comply with Google AdSense Policy regarding Domain Age in your country.
2. E-Mail ID:
I strongly recommend you to use your domain specific E-Mail ID while applying for AdSense.
For example, it is a good practice to apply for AdSense with “email@example.com” than “firstname.lastname@example.org”
I will publish a detailed tutorial on how to get Domain Specific E-Mail ID for your blog soon and update this article with the appropriate link.
3. Decent Traffic:
If you have decent traffic on your blog, you will win the half-battle in your blogging journey.

Although it is not official, but having at least 2K Visitors/Month will make your chances better for a fast AdSense Approval.
