Today I am here to help you get Google AdSense approval. A lot of people have asked me about this, so I have put together 12 tips that will help you get approved quickly.
Google AdSense is one of the best ad networks to monetize a website or a blog. It is 90% better than any other CPC advertising programs.
The bitter truth is that Adsense introduces strict rules and requirements. This makes it more difficult to get Google AdSense Account approval. In fact, statistics show that Google Adsense only accepts approximately 3 accounts out of over 1000 applications they receive daily.
This is why I am here to make things pretty much easier for you.
12 Proven Tips To Get Google AdSense Account Approval.
1. Write High-Quality Content:
Number one is what I consider to be one of the most important things to do if you’re trying to get approved with Google AdSense. That is, you need to make sure you have high-quality content on your website.
2. Create 10-15 Posts Before Apply ing Google AdSense.
Number two goes back to high-quality content. Before you even apply to Google AdSense, you should have 10-15 high-quality posts on your website to make sure Google knows you’re taking it seriously, and that your website has some articles that can be monetized.

3. Blog Domain Must Be Old At least 6 Months:(Optional tip)
In certain countries like India and China, there is a requirement for 6 months for the domain to apply for AdSense
Here is official statement from AdSense team:
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.Google AdSense team.
This is not applicable in Nigeria anyway so if you are in Nigeria you can apply even if your domain is 3 months old.
4. Make The Website Look Decent.
Number four is to make your website look decent. This doesn’t mean you have to go buy premium themes, but you want to make sure your website looks good.
Take a look at Speedyminds, it has a simplified design and off course structured easily for navigation purpose.

5. Make Sure You’re Over 18 Years Old:
Number five is to make sure that you are of age. With Google AdSense, you have to be 18 years or older to have an account.
When you are filling out an application to join AdSense, they ask you for your birthday. If you are under 18 years old, you are not allowed to get an AdSense account.
That doesn’t mean you can’t do it. If you are under 18 years old, keep doing what you’re doing; it’s great that you’re starting so early.
My Advice: What you need to do is have a parent or legal guardian put their name on it. Just remember that the checks are going to be made out to that person and not you, so make sure it’s someone you trust.
As long as that person is willing to cash in for you and help you with that else you are in big trouble.
6. Check if Your Blog is Not Blocked by Google:
Be sure that, your blog is not blocked by Google. Because Adsense will check your blog statistics on their search engine. Don’t know how to check it?
Just search for “site:yourdomain.com” on Google. If you find out search results, your blog is not blocked. But, if you not, it is blocked.
7. Don’t Use Images with Copyright:
Do not use copyrighted images. I can’t stress this enough. If you have taken an image directly from Google and put it on your website, never do that again. Where to get images? Use Flickr .
8. Your blog or website should not contain adult/Restricted contents:
You can’t have anything sexual, and you can’t have shocking, like killing, terrorism, explosives, guns, tobacco, recreational drugs, the sale of alcohol, online gambling, prescription drugs, and unapproved pharmaceuticals or supplements.
9. Apply Google AdSense Using Root Domain:
You should always apply using the root domain like yourdomain.com. Not blog.yourdomain.com.
It’s pretty simple why; when Google is reviewing your website, they want to make sure it’s legitimate, so they want to know who’s behind the site.
11. Make Sure Your Website Isn’t Banned:
For those who have created a website from scratch and bought the domain fresh, you don’t have to worry about this (unless you were already told you were banned from Google AdSense).
But if that’s not the case, and you have purchased a website or domain name, then there s an off-chance that your website has been previously banned from Google AdSense. It’s something definitely worth looking into.
12. This is the last point: Work on your page speed, make your blog load very fast.
