How to get accepted into the Google Adsense Program

Will Google accept your website or blog?

It's not really tricky to get into the Google Adsense Program. However, time after time there have been people that have been denied multiple times. They just can't figure out why.

There are rules that need to be followed and Google does enforce them. Fortunately for you, I will give you some tips that should allow you to be inducted into the Adsense program. Google will eventually accept your website or blog. You just have to convince them that it's worth their time to flip the switch for you to start putting ads on your site and that you are not a risk to them or their advertisers. They really do care about their advertisers and they will give you the boot if you even give them a little sniff that you are up to something fishy.

You must have quality content on your website or blog

Google will not or ever accept you if you do not have enough quality content on your website. Take your time and have some patience. You will not make money immediately when you place ads on your site anyway as you will probably not have enough traffic to matter. So just have a little patience and build your site up with content and traffic because if you don't you will get DENIED.

Google also likes for the site or blog to link properly and not be a bunch of spam garbage. Many of the sites out there that are seeing a lot of the DENIED is the "make money online" websites. Google is cracking down on these for a lot of them are very low quality. First of all, it's not that you can't get accepted. It has to do with your content. Is it spam? Does it all say the same stuff and just point to a whole bunch of affiliate links? Is it linked properly? This is all important and the Google boys will look at it all.

So just relax and write some good quality stuff and the traffic will soon follow and you should get accepted.

Get a bit of a pagerank

If you don't know what pagerank is then just do a quick search and a whole bunch of info will come up on it. A good method to get accepted into picky 'ol Adsense is to have at least a pagerank of 2 when you apply. This could take you a couple of months but remember that you probably will not have any traffic anyway so it's no rush to apply. Also, I'm not saying that you can't get in with even a pagerank of 0. It's all about circumstances and what your site or blog is all about.

Pagerank is like a quality meter. The meter goes from 0-10 with 0 being low quality and 10 being the highest. Not many sites out there have a 10. So since Google is looking for quality sites to promote their Adsense program, the higher your pagerank the higher the chance you will get accepted.

Don't give up

If you really must have Adsense on your website, then I urge you to not give up trying to get accepted if Google just keeps denying you. You will eventually get in. As long as you keep building quality content and get links back to your site from other quality sites or  blogs to build your pagerank, you will eventually get in and get your chance to host some Adsense ads.

Like I stated before, Google can be picky and it just takes time. The older your site, the more quality articles you have, and the higher pagerank will see you in soon enough.

I will say though, once you get in, do not screw it up or you will probably be out for good. Most people who get their account disabled never get a second chance. And don't try using your wives or friends name because they log ip addresses and server stats and all that good stuff to make sure you never get in again. They do not mess around.

I hope this helped you and gave you some insight on how to get accepted into Google's Adsene Program. There can be more issues that may not allow you to be accepted, but there is no way I can know them all as Google does not release to much information. Just be yourself and have some quality content and you should be OK. Also, don't use anything under copyright that you do not own and no porn.

Good luck!

      thanks for sharing, but I'm still quite not familiar with pagerank and how is it.

      Wow. Getting ahold of an email for support is near to impossible as you stated. Have you tried the AdSense forums as an alternative. Many people on there seem to know quite a bit. Sorry I don't have an email address. I looked for a good 10 minutes and nadda.

      I sought out support, but the closest thing to "direct" contact I could get from them is a post on their help forums, for which I haven't heard anything back. Do you happen to have an email address I can send a message to?

      Have you contacted AdSense support? They would be a a better source of what's going on than me. I just tried to sign up for another account just to see if it would let me and it seems that everything went through for me just fine. I didn't actually send the request for a new account but all the steps let me through.

      If you are still having issues, try contacting support if you haven't already.

      I've had some trouble applying. The server for processing my application has been giving me an "unable to process request" error for weeks now, and nothing on the AdSense Support site has given me any information on the issue.

      I don't suppose you would be able to shed any light on this?

      How did you apply? Was you using your own website to apply or using your hubpages account?

      The idea to write quality hubs, is very interesting. I read it all, its very informative article, especially for them, who want to signup for Google Adsense. Voted up!

      I've been accepted into the Google AdSense program and related ads used to appear on my HP site regularly. All of a sudden, they're not there; my ads were about health care and the need for health insurance . Is there somewhere I can put them? Where precisely do I put te codes on HP?
