This article will help you to know:
So, let’s get started.
What Is Google AdSense?
AdSense is an advertising program from Google for publishers to make money from blogging. It was launched in 2003 and now it is the most popular advertising program on the internet.
It is a free and simple way to earn money by displaying ads on your blog. The most loved thing about AdSense is that it is a contextual ad network.
This means you can show quality, relevant (based on the context of the article or based on readers’ interest) and engaging ads to your site visitors. Also, it gives you the freedom to customize the look and feel of ads to match your site.
How Google AdSense Works?
The whole process is quite simple. Once you got the approval from AdSense, all you need to is, add a few lines of unique ad codes to your blog pages or sidebar widget or different places. After that, AdSense will show ads based on different criteria.
Being a contextual ad network, AdSense will take care of ad display. It will display ads according to the content type or user’s interest.
For contextual advertisements, Google’s servers use a web cache of the page created by its crawler bot (Google bot) to determine the set of high-value keywords. If keywords have been cached already, advertisements are served for those keywords based on the Google Ads bidding system.
Once Ads were started showing on your blog or website, all you need to focus on driving more traffic to blog or website to earn more.
When visitors visiting your website will click on AdSense ads, you will start making money. In some scenarios, Google pays you when visitors even see the ads. Overall it is the easiest way to make money online, but all you need to do is writing good quality content and driving targeted traffic to your website.
How To Get Approval From Google AdSense Quickly?
Getting AdSense approval is the biggest dream of every blogger.
Unfortunately, AdSense did not give approval for all bloggers or website owners due to its strict terms and conditions.
So, you and your site need to meet some eligibility requirements to participate in the AdSense program. If you follow these eligibility requirements then you can easily and quickly get AdSense approval.
Here is the list of eligibility requirements for Google AdSense:
1. You Must Be Over 18 Years Of Age
This is the first and foremost important requirement to get AdSense approval. According to AdSense terms and conditions person or publisher must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the AdSense program.
If you are not yet 18, then you may have a parent or guardian sign up AdSense using their own Google Account. If their AdSense account is approved, then you will receive your payments on their bank account.
2. You Must Own and Control Your Website
To use the AdSense account, you must own and control your site. In short, the website should be yours and you must have access to the HTML source code of your site.
This is because while creating AdSense account you need to add AdSense code in the header (<head>) section of your site to verify its ownership.
If you did not own a site and you just sign up with that site then you will not be able to add the AdSense code to the site. Due to this AdSense won’t able to verify your site ownership and your AdSense account doesn’t get approved.
3. Your Site Must Have Unique and Interesting Content
As a blogger, we all know that Content is the king. Site content is the first and foremost thing you need to focus on before applying for AdSense.
Valuable and original content on your site will help you to build a strong and loyal user base you need. And AdSense always looks for such websites to show its ads.
If Google finds your site is full of scraped, stolen, and content that doesn’t make sense or provides no value to a reader, then obviously it will decline your application.
So, you must focus on providing valuable and original content to your users. As long as you are writing your own content your site SEO, ranking, and AdSense account will be safe. Otherwise, everything will get ruin.
4. Your Site Content Must Comply with Google Content Policies
Always be careful with what type of content you are publishing. Because Google has a lot of restrictions on the kind of content that can be on a site they monetize.
Your website cannot contain things like pornography or adult materials, pirated content, hacking or cracking tutorials, illegal drugs or paraphernalia content, weapon sales and so on.
Take a look at the complete list of content that is not accepted by AdSense. These contents are not allowed by AdSense to monetize.
If you are already written about listed contents, then you should get rid of them before applying AdSense. Otherwise, stop dreaming about AdSense.
Make sure you are not going to write articles on these contents in the future after getting AdSense approval. This is because AdSense will suspend your account immediately after finding such content on your site.
5. Your Site Must Use a Supported Language
Website language is another important factor to get AdSense approval because AdSense doesn’t support every single language in the World.
They’re serving ads for popular or most readable languages so that readers can view the ads. So, make sure that your site’s primary language or content is in the supported language to apply for AdSense.
Below is the list of supported languages at the time of writing this article – Check here:
6. You Site Should not have Copyright Content
All content you display on your site, from images to text to videos, must be something that you own or you are allowed to use or share under copyright law.
For example, Your site should have the content you wrote yourself, images you created yourself, a logo that you created yourself or paying someone, a video that you have recorded and other such elements.
According to AdSense copyright policies, your site should not include stolen or copied content, images with no license to use, or video that someone created.
Basically, displaying any form of third-party content on your site as your own is against the AdSense copyright policies. In such cases, AdSense will not show ads on such content and there will be a higher chance of getting suspended from the AdSense program.
So, create quality content from scratch, use your own images and videos and other forms of content. If you have to use someone’s content such as images or videos then get their permission to use it on your site or give credit to the website or person who has created it under the image or video (This shows that this content is not yours).
7. You Must Not Circulate Fake Traffic
Google is very strict in terms of website traffic. Your site must get traffic from legal sources like search engines, social media, and related blogs.
As Google says:
“Clicks on Google ads must result from genuine user interest. Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions on your Google ads is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include, but are not limited to, repeated manual clicks or impressions, automated click and impression generating tools and the use of robots or deceptive software. Please note that clicking your own ads for any reason is prohibited.”
“Google ads may not be placed on pages receiving traffic from certain sources. For example, publishers may not participate in paid-to-click programs, send unwanted emails or display ads as the result of the action of any software application. Also, publishers using online advertising must ensure that their pages comply with Google’s Landing Page Quality Guidelines.”
So, don’t use such illegal methods to earn more money from Google AdSense. If you do, AdSense detects the illegal activities happing on your site and ban you from their program.
8. Your Site Should Not Have An Abusive Experience
Basically, AdSense bans those sites that contain a page that look like it’s trying scam users, steal information, deliver malware, or other types of abusive experience or fraud.
So, create the content to share knowledge, experience, or love. Do not create content to abuse someone or something.
These are some official eligibility requirements you should meet before applying for the AdSense program.
Once your site meets all official eligibility requirements, follow some other tricks or techniques mentioned below to get AdSense approval quickly.
These are some legal tricks and techniques to get AdSense approval in the first try. All these techniques have helped me to get Adsense approval for this site in 6 days.
So, let’s see:
9. Write High-Quality Content
The first and foremost important thing you need to write high-quality content before applying for AdSense program. This is a very important factor that you can’t ignore or neglect at any cost.
Google loves the site which provides or providing high-quality, informative, and helpful articles to its visitors. So, you need to write such articles on your site. If you are writing SEO Friendly articles on your site then it will definitely help you get AdSense approval as well as to rank your blog post in search engine results page (SERP).
High-quality content means it should be:
- unique and original
- has proper headings and bullet points
- free from grammatical mistakes
- long enough (minimum 750 words), and useful & informative.
So, make sure your site’s pages/posts are ready for AdSense before you sign up.
11. Create Clear Navigation Menu
Not creating essential pages on site is the common mistake new bloggers make. Without creating a proper website it is impossible to get AdSense approval and to build visitors’ trust.
Also, these pages are mandatory for all websites and they will help you to get approval from Google AdSense.
10. Create Essential Pages On Your Site
Navigation is an important element for your users to know their way around your website. Basically, it makes easy for your users to find out the pages or content that they are looking for.
Here is what Google says your site should have:
So, don’t forget to add your site’s important pages in the navigation menu. This will improve the experience of your site visitors and increase the chance of getting AdSense approval.
12. Categorize Your Blog Posts
If you are publishing too many blog posts then arrange relevant blog posts in different categories.
Categories basically help your users to find related or relevant articles in one place.
For example, If I am publishing blog posts related to plugins then I will arrange all related blog posts under the WordPress Plugins category. Whenever the user clicks on the WordPress plugins category he will see all related blog posts in one place.
So, arrange your blog posts in different categories. Always keep in mind that if you are creating category then, publish at least 1 blog post under that category.
Don’t keep it as empty categories because it will be considered as a “website under construction” by AdSense.
13. Publish Good Number Of Posts
How many blog posts should I publish before applying for AdSense? It is one most asked question but there is no confirmed answer.
But one thing is clear that Google loves high-quality content providing websites. You already know that what is high-quality content. Just write such articles.
I want to share my experience here, I published 10 high-quality articles of minimum 1000 words (some of them are over 2000+ words). Also, I created all of the essential pages. After that, I applied for AdSense and got approval in 6 days.
So, I recommend you to publish 10 to 15 articles. Try to cover each and every topic in the article to make it more informative. Make sure to write at least 750 word articles but I recommend you to write lengthy articles including all topics because they will more informative and convincing.
In short, “try to write better content than your competitors. And focus on content quality, not on content quantity.”
14. Improve Your Site Design
We all know that the first impression is the best impression. To grab your user’s or visitor’s attention your blog design matters a lot. Google loves a clean, professional, and fast-loading site design.
Just think, you visited a website with messy design, not properly arranged navigation, and full of banners. Will you visit it again in the future? I hope you will not.
So, you have to build a good first impression on your visitors to engage them.
Actually, the website or blog design is the biggest thing after content. It represents your expertise, experience, and professionalism. So, your blog design should have features like:
So, if your blog is not having good design start designing it today.
If you are on WordPress self-hosted blog then there are plenty of professional-looking themes available in the WordPress eco-system. If you are looking for simple, professional, lightweight, and fast loading themes then I recommend you to use Astra or GeneratePress or MyThemeShop themes.
You can also use the page or theme builders like Elementor, Divi builder, or Thrive Architect to build and design professional websites from scratch. They offer you all the features and functions you want.
Suppose if you are using free website building platforms like Blogspot then there are many great websites available in the market where you can find free and paid professional looking blogger templates for your blog.
“I recommend spending money on your blog to make money.”
Follow my detailed guide to start a blog to get AdSense approval quickly.
15. Use Top Level Domain
To build a user’s trust and unique identity you need to have a unique domain that species your blog. If you don’t have one yet, stop dreaming of getting AdSense approval with subdomains.
The unique and top-level domain will cost you around $10 – $15 per year. So, if you are using subdomains like yourname.blogspot.com (for Blogspot users) then go and buy the domain for your site.
Don’t forget to read the detailed guide on how to choose the best domain for your website.
There are many domain extensions available like .NET .IN .ORG, and etc. But the best domain is the one with .COM extension. So, choose a short, unique, and easy to remember domain that is related to your blog niche with .COM extension.
Nowadays, it is become difficult to buy a domain with .COM extension. Your first preference should be to buy the domain with .COM extension, if you don’t find .COM extension domain then get a domain with other extensions.
16. Disable Other Ad Networks or Ads On Your Site
If you are using any other ads networks like Media.net, PropellerAds, or any other ad networks, then drop them off before applying for AdSense.
Even Google allows you to use other ad networks along with them, but it is better to remove all the placed ads before applying for AdSense. Also, don’t put them back until you get the AdSense approval which usually takes anywhere from a few days to weeks.
So, make sure to remove all the ads on your blog from other networks before submitting your application for AdSense.
17. Don’t Keep Any Post/Page In Draft
Before applying for AdSense it is mandatory to build a fully functional or developed website or blog. If you are keeping page, categories, menus, elements, and other elements empty on your site then it will be treated as “Under Construction”.
So, make sure to check each and every link, button, menu, and other elements on your site. If you find elements are not working properly then fix them.
Also, don’t keep any pages or posts in draft. Just publish them or delete them before applying for AdSense.
Google wants fully functional, well built, high-quality content providing sites to show its ads. So, make sure you build that one.
18. Create Social Pages and Publish Your Blog Posts
Creating social profiles is one of the most important things to do after installing WordPress.
Social Profiles are the best way to build a community for your blog or website and are like trust badges for your websites. You can post your blog articles to your social profiles on a regular basis to get decent traffic.
Creating Social profiles is the best and easiest way to connect with your audience. You can get attention by publishing Posts, Giveaways, Special Offers and more.
So, I recommend you to create a profile on Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter and the Facebook page. These are the popular social networks and get millions of visitors every single day.
If you build your community on these platforms then you can easily reach thousands of visitors. So, create recommended social profiles now and start to post your articles and build a community for your blog.
19. Your Site Should Be At-least Six Months Old
Domain age or website age is another important factor in getting AdSense approval. In some Asian countries like India, AdSense has placed domain age restriction. That’s why they don’t accept the sites which are less than 6 months old.
But in my case, the domain age did not matter for me. Because I applied for the Google AdSense program when this website is 52 days(1.7 months) old and got approval.
I created this website on 8th October 2019 and applied for AdSense on 28th November 2019 and got the approval on 4th December 2019. While applying for the AdSense program, this site had 10 well-written articles, essential pages, and clean design with no third-party ad programs.
So, I understood that quality content is an important factor to get AdSense approval quickly. Because Google loves to show its ads on quality content providing websites.
If you also have a fully built website with high-quality content then apply for AdSense, you will definitely get approval.
20. Your Site Need Sufficient Traffic
Google usually rejects the site for not having enough traffic. So, it’s your responsibility to drive traffic to your blog or site.
You can drive free, quality, and organic traffic by writing SEO friendly articles. Also, you can drive traffic by publishing posts on social profiles, groups, Quora and etc.
If I tell my experience then from the day of creating a website to the day of applying for AdSense, this website had 353 users and 1690 pageviews. So, just drive a decent amount of traffic to your blog before applying for AdSense.
Your site traffic is directly proportional to your earning. If you are able to drive a huge quantity of traffic to your blog then you will earn a good amount of money from AdSense.
This is how you can build an AdSense friendly website to get approval faster.
Whether you had a website already or creating a new one, just follow these 20 points to build your website or blog. After that, you will definitely get Google AdSense approval in the first try.
How To Create Google AdSense Account?
Once your website met all the eligibility requirements of AdSense, you are ready to create an AdSense account.
Google AdSense allows one AdSense account per person. So you cannot have a 2 or more AdSense account under single Payee Name (Name).
So, follow or read each step carefully to create an AdSense account without any mistakes:
Step 1: Sign Up
In the sign-up form you need to submit:
- Your website URL (without HTTP:// or HTTPS://)
- Your email address (Gmail address or business email address)
- And check whether you want to receive customized help and performance suggestions from AdSense.
NOTE: Here in this step don’t submit your website URL with HTTP:// or HTTPS://. And add the Gmail address that you use day to day or use the business email address to sign up with AdSense.
Make sure that, the submitting email address should not be used before to create the AdSense account.
Once you fill all the details, simply click on Save and Continue.
After that, select your country and read and accept AdSense terms and conditions.
And Click on Create Account.
Step 2: Add Payment Address Details
After Signing up you will land on your AdSense account, where you will see the pop-up of a quick overview of how AdSense works. Just read it or Click on Get Started.
In this step, you need to add your Payment Address Details. Here you need to select the account type and add your name (As it is in your Bank passbook), address and Phone number. And click on Submit.
NOTE: While adding your name you need to add the same name as it is in your bank passbook. Because this name should match the bank account name that you are going to add as a payment method.
And add your address details properly, because when you reach the threshold of $10 AdSense will send you Account Activation code to that address. You need to add that activation code to get payments from AdSense. If you failed to add that activation code in 3 chances, your AdSense account will be suspended.
Step 3: Connect Your Site To AdSense
Once you add the payment address details, now you need to add Your AdSense Code to your website’s header section.
Just copy the provided AdSense code and go to your website and paste it in the website’s header section using the Insert Headers and Footers.
Once you successfully paste the code on your website, simply go back to AdSense account and check the box of I’ve pasted the code into my site. And click on Done.
After that, you will see the pop-up of The code was found. If you did not see this message then you did not add the AdSense code properly.
After adding code into your website, the AdSense account activation process will start. Account activation will take time. This process usually takes 2 to 4 weeks or even a month. So, wait patiently.
This is how you can create an AdSense account properly. Until you get the approval, start writing unique & high-quality blog posts and drive traffic to your website.

How To Secure Your Google AdSense Account From Invalid Click Activity?
AdSense is one of the best and most popular choices of the publishers to monetize. But not only getting AdSense approval is difficult but also keeping AdSense account safe is a challenging task.
Due to Google’s strict policies and guidelines, many publishers have reported that their AdSense account is getting suspended because of Invalid Click Activity.
Any suspicious clicks or impressions included in increasing publishers’ AdSense income come under invalid click activity. This means if someone clicking on your AdSense ad frequently then AdSense will consider that particular click as Invalid click and immediately suspend your account.
As per Google:
“AdSense publishers are ultimately responsible for the traffic on their ads. For this reason, it’s critical that you diligently monitor your ad traffic to ensure that your account is compliant with our policies and not accruing invalid activity. If you see something suspicious after following the tips below, you’re welcome to notify us”.
So, it’s your responsibility to protect your AdSense account against invalid click activity.
For WordPress users, I recommend you to use AdSense Invalid Click Protector (AICP) plugin.
This is the best plugin for AdSense users to protect their accounts. Basically, this free plugin helps you to save your Google AdSense account from unusual invalid click activities and click bombings.
The plugin comes with features including:
- Set maximum ad click limit
- Block any visitor if he exceeds the mentioned click limit
- Ban some countries from seeing the ads on your site
- Ability to see the list of banned user details from the WordPress admin section
- Ability to delete any banned IP one by one or in bulk approach
- Ability to search any IP within the banned IP list
- Admin dashboard widget to show the total number of banned users
So, just install and activate the AICP plugin on your WordPress website.
After activating the plugin you can see the AICP plugin section on the sidebar of the WordPress dashboard. Simply click on that, it will take you to the AICP page.
Here change the AICP settings according to your preferences. Once you finish with the settings click on save changes. This will complete the plugin setup. Now your AdSense account protected against invalid click activities.
This is one of the easiest methods to protect your AdSense account. Along with this method, please follow some important tips to avoid invalid click activity:
- Never ever click on your own ads. Not even for testing or to check if ads are working fine and getting tracked. – I mean it!
- Do not ask or provoke others (Friends & Family members) to click on your Google ads.
- Never use any automatic software or scripts to click the ads.
- Avoid partnering with low quality and untrusted websites or parties
- Google is very advanced, so do not try to be over smart to increase your AdSense revenue with bullshit self-clicking methods. Otherwise, you will have to pay a heavy penalty in return.
Google needs high-quality websites to do business and to provide good values to the advertisers. That’s why it gives too much importance to the policy and guidelines. If you are caught in any case, your AdSense account will be suspended without any further notification. No matter it was your mistake or not. So, beware!
How & When Does Google AdSense Pay?
When your AdSense earning reaches the payment method selection threshold (i.e. $10), you can select your method of payment.
Depending on your location or payment address, the following payment options may be available for you:
- Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
- EFT via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA)
- Wire Transfer
- Western Union Quick Cash
For Example: If you are from India, then Wire Transfer will be your payment method to receive the AdSense payments. Like that, choose the relevant payment method according to your location or Payment address.
Usually, Google AdSense pays you when your payment threshold reaches $100.
Before receiving payments from AdSense, you need to complete some steps:
- provide your tax information (depending on your location)
- Confirm your payee name and address
- Verify your identity (using any government-issued ID card or bank statement or any other method)
- Verify your address (Unique verification PIN will be sent to the payment address in your AdSense account after reaching the threshold of $10)
- Select your form or method of payment
- Meet the payment threshold ($100)
Once you complete all these steps and your current balance reaches the payment threshold ($100) by the end of the month, a 21 day payment processing period begins. After this processing period, AdSense will issue the payment.
For example: Let’s say the payment threshold for your account is $100. If your AdSense current balance reached $100 during February and you have completed all the above steps, then AdSense issues a payment at the end of March.
What To Do If Your Application Is Rejected?
I know you all tried hard to get AdSense approval. But, AdSense is still not getting approved.
In that case, don’t lose hope. Take your time to fix the issues on your blog that is mentioned by AdSense in rejection email and apply again.
Always keep in mind that you can apply again and again until you finally get approved by Google AdSense.
I wanted to share my experience. I applied for AdSense and did not get approval. The reason they mentioned in the email is “Our specialists have found that it does not meet our programme criteria. Therefore, we are unable to accept you into our programme.”
So, when your application got disapproved, don’t lost hope and thoroughly check your site for above written eligibility requirements and read the AdSense policies. And apply once again and definitely, you will get approval.
After trying hard, still, you failed to get AdSense approval then apply for other ad networks.

You may be thinking that Ezoic is an expensive tool. But it is not.
Ezoic offers a free plan for bloggers. You can use this free plan for a lifetime but it has only one condition that “You have to agree to display a small Ezoic ad at the bottom of your page”.
If you don’t want to display the ad bottom of your page, then you can choose the Subscription plan. To use this plan Ezoic will charge $5% per month from you. Basically, if you earn $5000 monthly then the price will be $249 per month.
This plan comes with all the features and it best for bloggers to make more money from AdSense. If you don’t want to use this plan then use the free plan. If you start getting good results then switch to a paid plan.
Using Ezoic you can increase the revenue of other ad networks like Media.net, PropellerAds, VigLinks, and other ad networks (If you are using these networks).
But there are some eligibility requirements to use Ezoic. Make sure that your blog meets all these eligibility requirements before signing up with Ezoic.
These are some methods to increase your AdSense revenue. I know the Ezoic guide is very short. But you will definitely get the most detailed guide to Ezoic (like this guide). Just stay tuned!
But I want to say one thing if your blog met eligibility requirements of Ezoic then you should try it now!!!
Frequently Asked Questions
I have already covered some of the frequently asked questions. But here I am listing some other important and frequently asked questions:
There is no exact answer to this question. Basically, it depends on your website design, content quality, traffic, and many other things. But you can get quick approval if you read and implement the above written “How To Get Approval From Google AdSense Quickly?” section.
This is the biggest mistake you can make as an AdSense user. And it is a common mistake that many beginner bloggers do. If you are thinking to do this, please don’t do it. If you follow this practice to increase AdSense revenue, then Google will track your activity and suspend your account without any notification.
So, never click on your own ads. And kindly ignore some “Self-clicking AdSense earning methods” on social media.
No! You cannot. Google allows a single Adsense account for a person. So, you cannot have multiple AdSense accounts on your name. Suppose if you have, both accounts will be going suspend very soon.
If your AdSense account got suspended then obviously, you cannot have another account. But you can use your parent or guardian’s approved AdSense account but not on a previously approved website or domain.
This means, If I got AdSense approval on wpblogspace website then after getting suspended, I cannot use my parent’s AdSense account on this same website.
Also, you can use other ad networks like Media.net, PropellerAds, Infolinks, VigLink to monetize your site in absence of AdSense.
There are no such earning limitations in AdSense. As far as you are providing quality-content, getting traffic, following AdSense program policies and terms & conditions, you will be going to earn money.
Yes! AdSense allows you to add multiple sites in association to the same account. This will enable you to monitor and manage your sites from the same place, saving you precious time. To know how to manage all your sites in a single AdSense account click here.
Clickthrough Rate(CTR) in Google AdSense is the number of clicks your ad received vs the number of times the ad displayed.
If your site has 100 pageviews and your ads receive 5 clicks, then your site’s CTR will be 5%. CTR can be as low as 0.05% and it cannot be higher if it is then it will be considered as Click Bombing and there will be a chance of account suspension.
There are a few things that you need to focus on to get higher CTR for your sites to increase AdSense revenue:
- Ad positioning
- Ad color
- Ad Format and Size
- Image or text ads
- Multiple units
If you focus on these things and optimize your site and ads then you can easily increase CTR in AdSense. If you don’t want to do it manually then you can use Ezoic to boost your AdSense revenue from day one.
If you ever notice a dip in your AdSense earnings then you should check 4 engagement metrics in the performance tab of your AdSense account:
- Clickthrough rate (CTR)
- Cost per click (CPC)
- Page revenue per thousand impressions (page RPM)
These 4 things will cause a dip in your AdSense revenue. If you want to know more please visit the AdSense blog.
