Adsense Account Approval

Updated on September 4, 2009

Adsense Account Approval-Background

Almost on a daily basis in the forums I see people asking the same question.  How do I get AdSense account approval.  Of course the question is asked in many different ways but typically this is the gist of it.

I hope to be able to help some people out by explaining exactly how myself and many others have gotten approved very quickly.  What I am about to show you is no secret.  In fact I am sure I have read the answer in the forums before.

There is nothing illegal, nothing immoral or nothing tricky.  All it will take is a few hours of effort and most of you will be off to the races with your new AdSense account.

I don't believe this Hub will be very long but it will be straight forward and to the point.  So lets move on with how you can get AdSense account approval.

Easy Money Just Does Not Exist

AdSense Account Approval-Don't Kid Yourself

The first thing you need to know is even with AdSense account approval that does not guarantee you will make money.  It takes a lot more than just writing a few Hubs to start seeing any real AdSense earnings.

The effort required is a lot of work.  You need to set out and understand that it takes time.  I see many people on Hubpages write a few Hubs and then 2 days later they are in the forums asking why they are not making money.  I'm not sure why this is because there is nothing really misleading in Hubpages TOS but I think it's just that people do not read the terms of service.

So never the less you need to be prepared to put in a huge amount of work which will include learning SEO, keywords, article writing and so forth.  I wish it was just as easy as throwing up a couple of Blogger blogs, Wordpress blogs or even Hubs and just sitting back and collecting the cheques.

A couple more steps and words of wisdom and I will give you my recipe for getting your AdSense account approval.

Don't Count On Too Many 900 000 Dollar Checks
Don't Count On Too Many 900 000 Dollar Checks

AdSense Account Approval-Watch What You Do

After you get your AdSense account approval you will be searching for bigger and better ways to make money with AdSense.  First of all it is so important that you read the Terms Of Service when it comes to Google AdSense.  You need to read it and read it again until you understand it.  If you learn nothing from this Hub please learn this one thing.


Once they close your account it is almost impossible to ever get them to open it again so you basically have one chance and that is it.

The next thing you need to know is there will be tons of so called gurus trying to sell you the next big secret to getting rich from AdSense.  Sorry to tell you this but there is no real big secret.  It's all about hard work and learning the key elements.

I don't care how many huge checks they show you.  I could put up screen shots right now saying I made a million dollars.  All I am saying is don't fall for the so called secret tactics to make money with AdSense.  In fact many of those secrets will get your account banned anyways.

I am here to tell you there is good money to be made if you are willing to put in the effort.  My partner and I have never seen 5 figures but around Christmas we do see high 4 figure checks and lower 4 figure checks the rest of the year.  Every penny and click is earned through hard work and no real secrets.  Okay next part is about AdSense Account Approval.

AdSense Account Approval-Getting Approved

Well I guess it is time to tell you what works almost all the time when it comes to AdSense account approval.  Almost all of you are making a mistake by building a Hub or two and then applying for AdSense.  You will almost always get denied.  The odd one will get through but most won't.

The way I tell people to almost always get accepted is to build a Blogger blog before applying.  Now you do need to put in just a bit of effort and time before you apply but almost always you will get accepted.  Out of the last 10 people I suggested this to 9 were accepted within 24 hours of applying.

You do need to pick a certain niche that you are going to build a blog on.  Once you do pick the niche you need to write at least 4 or 5 quality, original articles for the blog.  Then you need to post the articles to the blog.  Please make sure they are your own writing or else you will not get accepted.

Once you have the blog built and the articles posted you can then apply to AdSense.  In almost all cases you will get accepted and then you can use your AdSense code on HubPages or any where you want.

I know this sounds too good to be true and way too easy but it really does work.  I know there are certain countries that make you wait 6 months and so on but even in many cases people from these countries that apply using this method get accepted within 24 hours.  It really is a little effort for a big gain in the end.

By saying you shouldn't apply using Hubs in no way puts down the value of HubPages because in all honesty it is now one of my best tools for my affiliate marketing.  I am just saying that through experience I have found that applying using Blogger makes things move that much faster so you can start making money with HubPages.  So get to work and get your Blogger blog built so you can get Adsense Account Approval.

      Hi Dale,

      Dale, thanks for sharing the information. I have a webdirectory, normally in directory content may not be unique as same description will be submitted to other directories as well. In this case, will I get adsense approval for my directory?

      HVAC sorry it took me a bit to get back to you but better late then never I guess.

      In short yes I would put together a blogger blog to get started. You can choose any niche you want. In reality it shouldnt take you longer then a couple hours to build a nice looking blogger blog.

      Then of course you can apply for adsense with that blog. Once you have adsense it can then be applied to any blog you have as long as it applies to the TOS.

      I hope this helped but feel free to ask me other questions and I will try and help.

      I appreciate your straight-forward advice on getting approved, staying within the guidelines of the TOS, and mention of utilizing work instead of chasing all of the "tricks" being promoted in mass. Building a long-term business is my goal. Give me that residual income!

      I have a question though. I was preparing to use my stand-alone, Word Press Blog as my "show site" for my Adsense approval request. Should I switch gears and use a Blogger blog instead?

      Thanks again.

      You are absolutely right Uva. Once the settings say active you have the right codes in there and you are off to the races.

      Um... you said "then you can use your AdSense code on HubPages or any where you want." I think I'm missing something very obvious. I had a blogger account and an Adsense account that isn't where I'm confused.

      My confusion is: What box do you put the Verification code er? Meta tag, in the header or what page do you upload your Verification .html to on Hub pages ? Since we don't have access to a header/html and don't upload anything other than images ?

      Or is it automatic and once your affiliate settings reads Active - then are you all done ?

      I apply for adsense a year ago and got approved but because I wrongly type my name and google adsense policy for Indonesia only allow me to close my adsense and re apply with correct name, I closed my account and re apply but never get approved ever since. I am not sure if they ban my name because I closed my account..

      The problem with India is it is one of those places that frequents in fraudulent clicks so Adsense is a lot pickier to whom they give accounts to.

      All I can suggest is keep building good unique, quality sites and then reapply in a few months.

      Useful hub, thanks for the tip. I got accepted a couple of years ago so am not really up-to-date with what is happening now, so it is good to know the correct way to go about it so I can tell people who ask.
