Google AdSense is one of the best Ad networks to monetize a website and starts earning from it. It is widely used across the world and has the highest CPC. Every blog owner dreams of getting AdSense approval as soon as they start their blog. Many pass through and few find it tough to get approval. So In this article, I will share my practical experience and will show 10 killer tips on how to get Google AdSense approval quickly.
Blogging is not as easy as many of you might think. You have to have a great level of contribution to get success in blogging career. It does not make sense to apply for AdSense if you don’t get enough traffic. So our first priority should be getting enough traffic and then think about AdSense
My Experience with Google Adsense
I am a part of many blogging communities and almost every day I see some threads on AdSense rejection. I used to get scared and thought that I will never get AdSense approval as because I am a casual blogger. Having said that I stepped into blogging and started building my blog following my basics.
I did not watch any YouTube video or followed any expert advice. Just concentrated on creating a professional website and that’s it. I got AdSense approval on my 2 months old domain. The time taken for getting approval is just 12 hours. The second blog got approved in just 2 hours and the same happened for the third blog also.
Tips on how to get Google AdSense approval quickly
1. Use high-level domain
There is a high chance of getting AdSense approval if you use a high-level domain for your blog. Try to use the .com domain as it is widely visited. Regional domains like .in or .co.in have a fair chance of getting approval but .com should be your preference if you want to get Google AdSense approval quickly.
You should always try to apply AdSense with the root-level domain as It’s very difficult to get approval for subdomains. For example, we should apply with www.example.com but not with forum.example.com.
2. Use a good and reputed host
Speed makes a lot of difference nowadays in Google AdSense approval process. No one loves a slow website and Google too. Google is very choosy about giving approval to a website if it is slow as it affects the overall user experience.
To achieve the good speed you need to host your blog with a good hosting provider. Don’t get tempted by unlimited and cheap shared hostings. Use a VPS and once your blog grows use a dedicated server.
Below are links of a couple of articles which will help you to learn how you can decide which hosting you should choose.

3. Use a responsive and SEO optimized theme.
Using a responsive and SEO optimized theme makes a major difference in blog success. More than 50% of the user nowadays uses mobile to read articles. So having a responsive theme is a must to reach a greater audience. The responsive theme changes the interface based on the screen size so the user finds it easy to navigate.
If your blog theme is SEO optimized then you will have a good chance of getting a good rank in SERP ( Search Engine Result Pages). Good SERP helps to get more traffic and thus increases revenue.
To find a good responsive theme you can check out ThemeForest. This website has thousands of theme for WordPress. You can choose the one that is meeting your requirement. Usually, all theme vendors in ThemeForest give 6 months support. So this support is very good if you want to build your blog from scratch
4. Clean layout with mandatory pages.
Good layout and easy navigation help users to browse your website smoothly. If any user finds it hard to browse your website content then they will simply leave your website and this will increase the bounce rate. I see many websites have good contents but those are not properly arranged. Getting AdSense approval for those websites is a bit tough.
There are a couple of mandatory pages that every blog should have to get Google AdSense approval. Those pages are regulatory requirements for google to approve your account. Below are those pages.

5. The blog should have enough content
Many new bloggers apply for AdSense without even getting their website ready. They feel like getting AdSense if the key milestone for blogging success. But unfortunately that’s a misconception and you won’t be able to earn anything even if you get AdSense approval. Unless your blog has enough articles, no visitors will visit your blog and if your blog does not have traffic you won’t be able to earn anything even after getting AdSense approval.
Though there is no thumb rule about how many articles a blog should have to get AdSense approval for the safe side you should have at least 20 articles. The more is better. Article should have enough content and explains the subjects on which the article was written. Don’t write a half based article and this will give a negative impression to Google. Ideally, all article should have minimum 1000 words for google to approve your account quickly
6. No copyrighted content
Google is very strict about the copyright issue. No matter how nice your blog is but if you use copyrighted content, Google will simply reject your AdSense account. Don’t copy paste articles from other blogs. Google has a mechanism to track those. Don’t use copyrighted images. Many of us usually download images from Google search without even knowing that those may be copyright protected. There are many copyright-free images available in websites like Pixabay, Pexels from where you can download images to use in your blog.
7.Stick to your niche
One of the main mistake that most of the new blogger does is that they cant decide their niche or even if they decide the niche, they can not stick to it. It is very important to decide a niche and post article only on that niche. People do not love mixed content nowadays. You may get less traffic initially if you stick to a single niche but over the years that will be more beneficial. Target a specified segment of the crowd. If you try a wide range of crowd, that usually backfires.
8. Optimize blog for speed and SEO
Though you have an SEO optimized theme and fast host but to get the best out of your blog, you need to optimize your blog for more speed and SEO. A good host and theme may help to optimize up to some extent but unless you do optimization in your blog and post, it will get very difficult to get good SERP rating. Google also looks for this parameter before giving approval to your website.
9. Don’t use Black hat SEO
Sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly, but most of the new blogger do this mistake. Before that, we should know what is “ Black Hat SEO”. When you get backlinks from some spam websites and banned website, then that is called Black Hat onsite SEO. You might see many websites giving free backlinks. We usually get tempted and visit those websites to get backlinks. We get hundreds of backlinks within a minutes. But have you ever thought if those backlinks are of any use? Google loves quality backlinks. You might have many backlinks but if those are not from quality websites then those are of no use. Getting backlinks is a long term process. So if you get backlinks too quickly then Google will treat that as spam and will backlist your blog. I saw many websites which have great content but still could not get AdSense approval just because of black hat SEO.

10. Have patience
Finally, Don’t be in a hurry for Adsense. Nothing you will achieve by absence if your blog does not get traffic. Concentration should be on getting the traffic first and then apply for Adsense.

Well, if anyone follows above 10 rules then there is no way Google can reject your AdSense application. As I already said that we should not be in a hurry to apply for Adsense. Sufficient amount of time you need to spend before your website is ready for ads. In the worst case even if you don’t get Adsense approval there are a number of ad network through which you can earn money. Even if that is not possible, you can earn from your blog using affiliate marketing. In a nutshell, my point is that, if you have traffic to your blog then there are numerous way to earn money.
