How to be Approved Quickly by Google AdSense
Why is it taking so long to get my account approved?
That is not only your question but the question of hundreds of people. We don`t understand why when we signed up for a Google AdSense account, they said that we would be approved in 4 days and unfortunately we have already been waiting for a week. I`ve heard of cases of people who waited for six months and of people who were accepted in less than 24 hours. How does it work? What are the evaluation criteria? Why do they say 4 days if it`s going to take 4 months?
Why do they say 4 days if it`s going to take 4 months?
The auto-responder system of Google is 6 years outdated. That`s why they have been telling people the same thing for 6 years. 6 years ago, there weren`t that many online surfers and that much traffic, so it was possible for them to finish their assessment in 4 days. But today there is just too much content on the World Wide Web and a lot of applications.
How does it work? What are the criteria of evaluation?
Well, here are the reasons for such a long delay. First of all, a system goes through your site and if it is entirely free from any policy violations, then you are accepted right away, but those cases are not as common as people say in blogs. If this system detects any suspicion of violation in your website, then your application is sent to be minutely reviewed by a real person. This is when the actual waiting time begins, as there are an unimaginable number of broken sites, profiles and blogs out there waiting to be reviewed before it is your turn. The review time of 4 days is just not enough in view of the astronomical number of daily applications.
The second reason is that people usually apply again right after they were denied by Google or sometimes even before getting the answer from Google. More work for Google and more waiting time for you.
Ok, here go the real good tips that will put you first in line:
- Keywords. Include new content all the time. The more content containing keywords you publish online the better it is for your site or blog.
- Do not copy content. A good site or blog is established through original content, so always write authentic content and don’t write articles containing less than 400 words.
- Make sure you don`t have broken links or any link to an inappropriate site such as sites advocating racism, violence or intolerance based on race, religion, creed or national origin, sites selling illegal drugs, etc.
This will guarantee you will distinguish yourself from all the averages sites and blogs in order for your application to be approved sooner. I hope you enjoyed this article and get the opportunity to apply those tips. Good luck running your site.
If you are from India or China, your chances of waiting at least 6 month are a lot higher, so be up for new tips of how to proceed in this case.
