There are many adsense tricks you must know before you can be a certified adsense publisher and to get that adsense approval you need to work hard and be consistent so we came up with an idea to write on the things you need to do before you can get adsense approval.
What is google adsense and how does it work?
Google adsense is an ad-network run by google that stands as the middle-man between advertisers and publishers (webmasters & developers) which accepts publishers from different countries by placing adverts on their websites which in exchange pay them for this service from the money paid to them by advertisers. It is the largest and the most reliable ad-network in the world.
There are many full-time bloggers making complete living from adsense without fraudulent clicks, if you are consistent and hard-working you can make millions from adsense but don’t think it will be very easy because I said “there are many”, it is easier said than done.
Before you can make much from adsense you need a whole lot of traffic and not ordinary traffic, human audience! Let’s leave that for now as that is not what we want to talk about today
How Google AdSense Works
If you don’t know the way AdSense works, this is it;
You as a publisher (Webmaster), you will insert an adsense code that will be given to you when you are approved on your website . If you can’t code, don’t worry! WPQUAd plugin will do this for you for free. The plugin will place the code at your desired location except you header.
Most time these adverts are matched with the existing content you have on youemr website or matched with the cookies of the person viewing the posts.
Adverts displayed also varies from country to country, being a Nigerian webmaster does not necessarily mean your british visitor will also see a Nigerian advert.
Also note that it is difficult to buy or sell an Adsense account nowadays as Adsense policies have been updated one of the new policies says that every website you want to put an adsense code on must get approved before they can serve ads unlike before when you just need to add your adsense code on the new website and Ads will start displaying

Let me explain briefly on how I got my 2 personal adsense accounts in year 2016 and 2018
In year 2016 I applied for adsense for my blog that is not even up to four months old with only 26 posts and I got approved, since then I have been helping bloggers and other webmasters get adsense approval in weeks without stress and this year alone I’ve helped many bloggers get approved for adsense so I think you could be the next and that is exactly why am writing this lengthy piece – to help you out on getting approved for adsense.
By 2018 I have gained more blogging experience and getting adsense was more easier to get, I got adsense approval for this blog you are reading now (Bloggingscope.com) in 2—30 days with 8 published posts, you are shocked right? Don’t be!
I bought a domain name on 5th of November 2018 and I got approved for adsense on November 26 2018. Adsense really wanted to toil with my complete success story but God is surely bigger than them!
The approval process took 21 days but on a normal day it ought to be a day, I guessed that it was as a result of holidays in USA due to black Fridays, cyber monday and the likes.

However, before applying for adsense, you need to check these adsense approval tips because you wont get approved if you don’t follow adsense policies, adsense are not always straight for their rejection policies so we came up with a plan to split adsense policies into details for you.
Adsense approval techniques: 16 things you must do before applying for adsense to start serving ads on your blog
1. Publish Original, meaningful, lengthy and insightful contents
The no 1 goal of every blogger should be to produce contents that will be insightful, original and inspiring but I don’t know why some bloggers always look for shortcut by duplicating contents online.
Please when am talking of original contents, please don’t mind numbers! If you can produce 20 original contents and they are more than 1000 words it is okay than producing 100,000 plagiarized posts will never get you approved.
Adsense policies are really strict if your blog is not a standard blog and you produce plagiarized contents but if you can produce insightful and original contents then your chances of getting adsense approval is high.
When getting adsense approval, content is the 60% while other requirements follows.
… Believe me when I say not all orignal posts are quality posts, a post with 100 words can’t be considered as a quality post though you did not copy it , a quality post must be at least 300-500 words.
Also, make sure your posts are grammatically sound and highlighted with proper heading tags, bullet listed as this will increase your chances of getting approved.
Without these three pages your chances of approval is very slim or let me just spill the truth zero! Websites lacking these pages are considered new and not safe for users.
You must find a way to tell your users what your website is all about, who you are, how they can contact you and how you use their data — that is exactly what these pages are meant for.
When I said the three pages are essential, I did not say creating more pages apart from these three will get your adsense application rejected, you can have more pages but just ensure that they follow the rules and guidelines i.e. they must be original and not blank
3. Your age is very important
Many don’t think this is a serious issue but believe me it is, when opening gmail account they just choose any age they like but they don’t know this will later backfire.
Adsense policies stated that anyone applying for adsense should be at least 18 years old so choosing the wrong age for your gmail will easily get you disapproved even when you are meant to be approved.
Also, Provide accurate age when filling adsense application form to avoid stories that touch.
If you are not up to 18years old yet then we suggest that you use one of your parents or guardian email address and name and please inform then about it.
4. Buy a domain name, not free domain names please! TLD or ccTLD
Without a domain name you can never get adsense approval with a website unless you get a hosted adsense account with blogspot, names like yourblog.freedomainname.com will never get approved as they are considered unprofessional and risky, no one wants to do business with such website.
You need your own domain name like yourblog.com which will not even cost you up to $20.
Don’t buy domain name anyhow just because you want to get adsense approval fast! Please check our guide on choosing hosting and domain names. Domain extensions like .com, .org or Country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) like yourblog.co.uk are usually recommended.
You can buy a domain name from Qservers
5. Have a website or at least a youtube channel or an application
Many people do ask me if they can get adsense approval without a website, yes you can! If you develop applications or own a youtube channel.
However youtube adsense differs from adsense as it cannot be used on your website except you do an upgrade.
The easiest way to get adsense approval is by using a standard website so we recommend that you start a blog or a forum etc before you can even think of getting full adsense approval.
6. Website design should be at its peak
Your website design could be one thing that will knock you out of adsense approval chase.
Your website design should be at its very best when you want to apply for adsense, no one wants to run through a wall of texts.
If you can’t design your blog properly we recommend that you hire an expert in Coding your website for you as this will reduce errors on your website.
A horror design is a no for adsense
However if you want to design your website yourself you can still go on but do it properly without contradicting colours and other newbie designs
7. Adult contents are not allowed
Adsense stated clearly in their policies that websites with adult contents will never be approved, Adsense said and I quote “while we recognize that interpretations of adults or mature content may vary across countries and cultures we hold all publishers accountable to the same content requirements so that we can ensure a safe and global healthy advertisement ecosystem”.
Forget all these rumors that you can get adsense approval with a site publishing adult contents like pornography etc. you can’t please except you use some techniques which I stated in my ebook
Immediately they cite a topic or an image portraying adult contents they will disapprove your application.
The worst scenario here is that even if you are luckily approved with adult contents, the probability that you will get banned again is 90% as they will still review your application again so you should be cautious of what you write about.
You need to check this page on how to remove adult contents on your website if you have one
8. Domain age should be at least 6 months old
In some countries like India and Pakistan your website need to be at least 6 months before you can apply for adsense.
The reason behind this is not yet known though am guessing it is because most asian webmasters engage in adsense malpractice like self-clicking etc. so you have to wait for six months if you are in Asia, while waiting you can easily use this opportunity to set up your blog to the standard and also try out other ways to monetize your website (blog) like affiliate marketing etc.
This is even the best way to get reasonable amount of traffic before you start showing adverts on your website.
9. Use a trusted email address and add it your contact us page
When applying for adsense please avoid emails like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org as this will easily reduce your chances of getting approved, humans are the ones reviewing adsense applications you know!
It is even advisable that you use emails that portray what you do on your website like email@example.com .
Research shows that many websites get approved with this. Am not saying that you can’t use your personal email address please, you can use it but make sure it is not that email you use to commit crime up and down.
10. Avoid paid traffic
Be cautious when you get paid traffic, believe me when I say google algorithms can easily differentiate bots from human audience and even some of these automated bots are made to click ads automatically.
Some paid traffic will reduce your chances of approval by 200% if you are not careful, adsense wants human clicks and that is exactly what advertisers pay for.
We even suggest that before you apply for adsense flow with natural traffic you have on your blog and apply with it, this will reduce your chances of getting disapproved because of paid traffic. Adsense don’t use traffic as an approval requirement
11. Watch your sidebar
Sidebar is one thing adsense specialists take note of, just incase you are hearing this for the first time adding unnecessary sidebars may get your website disapproved.
Don’t disorganize your website with annoying sidebars and pages and widgets, take advantage of your sidebar to post information that will be useful to your readers like your recent post, call to action for subscription or lead generation etc. not stuffing the sidebar with flashy ads and irrelevant text.
12. Avoid black hat seo and work on your seo
We wrote a guide on beginners and pro guides to white hat, grey hat and black hat seo here so do well to check the page if you want to know more, also check 30 ways to improve your blog seo here.
I discovered lately that adsense want to start disapproving websites that are not properly search engine optimized like sites without meta description, site tags etc.
In addition, do well to avoid black hat seo techniques as websites practicing such will never get approved, black hat is one thing adsense specialists frown at like I discovered so do well to abstain from it.
13. Ensure navigation ease
Adsense don’t take navigation ease with levity hands so you should know how that proper navigation will easily trigger your approval, I myself have made this mistake in the past and I got disapproved for it so ensure your website navigation is at its very best before you apply for adsense.
On a normal ground your navigation is meant to be incorporated and properly placed with your theme but some themes are not properly coded which cause adsense disapproval so if you fall into this category we suggest that you change your theme or tweak your theme settings if you know how to do that.
14. Use Google adsense supported languages
Some languages are not supported yet by adsense so you need to check if your language is supported so these are thee supported languages: Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Catalan, Simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonia, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lativian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Spanish (Latin America), Sweedish, Tamil, Telungu, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian
So if your Language is not included then you need to find other ways to monetize your website or probably you blog about language then selling adspace may be the best way out.
15. Avoid nulled themes and plugins
There are some files that are placed in nulled themes and plugins, these files even have the tendency to break your website and your site is even prone to hacking.
Search engines mark such website as not safe to surf, when adsense specialists notice these things they will be left with no option than to disapprove your website as they can serve ads on websites that are not safe to browse
You can test your theme or plugins with XAMPP or WAMP before you go ahead and install them on your website.
16. Check if your country is not restricted by adsense
Google said they must comply with sanctions imposed by the OFAC ( United state office of foreign assets control and as a result Adsense is not available for publishers in some countries like Crimea, cuba, Iran, North korea, Sudan, Syria.
If you are affected by this then we suggest that you try some adsense alternatives
17. Avoid stealing Copyrighted Images
Many bloggers are guilty of this, they just go to google image to search and steal them which illegal.
Google don’t want to be sued for copyrighted images so they rather disapprove your adsense.
Even if you link to the real image owner, you will just reduce the probability of getting disapproved by 60% but you can still link to them if you can’t create images yourself.
Better still, you can buy those images and get the license
Grace (An adsense expert) want you to know this on adsense approval with copyrighted images……
How can i get adsense approval in one (1) minute

You launched a website just now and you want to start earning from it the following minute? Who does that?
