I was asked by a few friends about this interesting topic and I would be happy to share and give some advice. So basically, after you have launched your own website and started blogging, you finally decided to apply for Google Adsense to start earning. I love Google Adsense because I can track my earnings and I get zipped up for every additional cent. They said it’s every blogger’s dream. But, I’m telling you it’s not easy, and to tell you forthrightly I was amazed when my account was approved right off the bat. Since I’ve done this stage and I had the experience to get edgy, I am sharing these tips that I hope will help you and some enthusiastic bloggers.
First, let me tell you what is Google Adsense. This is quite common to bloggers. Google Adsense is the most popular online advertisement service, it is provided by Google but it’s not related to its search engine. By using Google Adsense, you can generate revenue from third-party ads on your website. It’s an easy way to make money from your blog. Yes! In other words, it is very rewarding once your account got approved and started running the ads on your website.
Nevertheless, it’s quite tricky when it comes to approval. Some say their accounts got the approval after six months, some accounts were approved after three months, and some were approved in just 24 Hours, like mine. It’s surprising and gratifying when I received the email from Google Adsense Team that my account was approved! Fantastic Feeling!
I’m running my website for one month with 15 posts and it was approved in no more than 24 hours. How? Here are a few tips:
Your contents should be unique and original. Google will predict if you copied your contents, they are pretty smart. It should be decently written and in correct accidence. The images should be your own and not grabbed from someone else’s page. The total words should be at least 500 per post. Your page should have enough contents and satisfactory for them to review and approve. Needless to say, there should be no nudity, pornography or unacceptable content.
Make Your Design Simple
Think of this way, when you are browsing a website and the landing page is rather knotty to navigate, would it be appealing to you? If the font color is neon green, would you be interested to read the contents? Make sure it is pleasing to the eyes of the reader or someone who is browsing your page. I’m a minimalist person and I keep things very simple, same as designing a page: easy to navigate, no superfluous widgets, user-friendly and orderly designed.
Contacts and About Page
You can create pages about yourself and your Contact information. You need to prove to them Your authenticity. Put Your Name and complete address. Make sure you have the details in your website when they want to reach you.
The best domain is the one with .com extension. I presume Google does not approve Adsense ads with subdomains like Yourdomain.wordpress.com. It would be better if you opt for your own domain and hosting. Choose a unique and easy to remember domain that is related to your blog niche.
After you have submitted your google account, wait for an email from Google Adsense Team. If your account was approved, they will ask you to complete some steps before running the Ads on your website. You will need to add some codes to your website’s HTML then follow the remaining instructions.
Happy blogging! 😊
