How Did I Get My Adsense Approval in One Try

Can we talk about Google Adsense today?

As you can see, I have so many things to say about Google Adsense and nobody in my home is interested to listen.  My husband understands me, but I guess somehow it tires him when I blabber about Adsense all the time.  My son however is too young to get what Mom is talking about.  So I thought I’ll write about it instead.  Has it ever happened to you?  Have you ever experienced being pink-as-punch happy about something you achieved when you thought you could never get it and you are dying to tell the stories of your feats and you just want to share the joys with someone?  That’s my predicament at the moment so please, indulge me.

But before that wait, I struggled to have Adsense in my blog so the little earnings could help augment my son’s educational expenses.   So it gives me to say that this post clearly remains connected to mommy-ing :D

Are you ready to listen to my Adsense tale? Because I am so ready to tell!

Firstly, let me explain how Adsense work  in a manner mommies could understand.

Let us say you have a website about kitchen utensils, and you want to promote your site in the web.  So what you do is you go to Google and join their advertising program by becoming an Adword advertiser. 

I, on the contrary do not have products, I have a cooking blog though and I’d like to put some ads on it.  So I also go to Google and join their advertising program by becoming an Adsense publisher.

Simply put, Adword provides the ads, Adsense provide the ad spaces and Google is like the heavenly match-maker. 

The program works like this:  You, as an Adword advertiser will provide your product’s keywords and Google will match you keywords with Adsense’ publishers (like me) articles’ text content.  If your keywords are, for example ‘kitchen utensils’ and ‘non-stick frying pan’, Google will then search if these keywords appear in my blog’s articles on cooking.  If they find it, they will show your ads in my pages. 

This is the reason why Google requires good, substantial text content from publishers. ‘Content is King’ the Adsense adage says, without sufficient content, no significant ads can be shown.  So there, somehow I hope I’ve explained how Adsense and Adword simply work.  Wonderful isn’t it?

Adsense  is a way of earning a little extra from your website’s content.  If you like blogging, and you have decent content, I suggest you visit Google Adsense website and read about how the earning scheme works. 

Secondly, I’m not connected to Google in any way.  What I would be sharing here is my experience of how I successfully got vittlesnvisuals.com application to be an Adsense publisher approved the first try and in the process give you important tips on how to get your application approved too.

Yes, you read it correctly, the first try. My full-approval came 3 days after I implemented the codes to start the 2nd stage happy girlof review.  That’s blazing achievement for a stay-in-mom like me who only uses the computer to open Facebook, gourmandize on my friends’ pictures, write comment on my friends’ posts or open my email occasionally  to check if somebody loves me enough to send me an email.

So, how did I get my Adsense approval in one try?  Oh wait, let me reiterate, I said getting Adsense approval in one try, I didn’t say EASY Adsense approval in one try.

Your blog will have to pass through and survive a gruel screening process and has to be fully approved before you could see those lovely ads go live in your blog.

Adsense review has 2 stages.  When you submit, the first stage is kind of quick scanning and database cross-checking if you have a previously disabled account, they will check for correct address format, or check whether you’re applying with a top level domain or a sub-domain, quick scan for copyrighted materials and if you have enough content  for them to continue crawling.  If you pass this stage, you will then be given ad codes which you will implement in your site to begin the 2nd stage of review which is of the site itself.

Okay, speaking of review, I find it important to let you know that all Adsense application  reviews are made by bots, not by humans.  You can’t argue with bots, so you’re left with no choice but to make sure that you have all the elements the bots will be looking for when you submit your application.

If the bots detect copyrighted images, they will reject your blog. 

If they calculate very little content, they will reject your blog. 

If the bots recognize sensitive materials, they will reject your blog.

If your are from Asia, and they ascertain that your site’s age isn’t matured enough, they will reject your blog. 

In fact, they can refuse your site just because.

Yes, they are that discriminating.

You can’t win against bots simply because you can’t bandy with them, so common sense will tell you to work with them instead by understanding how they ‘think’ and eventually giving them what they want.  Example, if they report back to say that you have insufficient content, you have to check each of your pages to find the culprit.   You may have published a post that contains a bunch of pictures but with very little text content.    To you, the post was probably okay,  but not to a bot that is originally designed to give more weight to text than to images.  Your only way around this is to beef up that particular post with substantial text content to feed the bots with.  No other way around it.

If you have copyrighted materials, your choices are:  remove them, or get them licensed.  No other way around it.

If you have posts with little text content:  beef it up or remove the posts.  No other way around it.

If your site isn’t 6 months old yet: Wait for 6 months.  No other way around it.

If you have a very family-friendly, wholesome site, and yet the bots concluded that you have ‘adult’ content:  Scan every single page of your site (including visitor comments) for any  ‘improper’ word.  (Sorry, the bots won’t point the specific area where they detected it.)

Just a quick tip:  BOTS LOVE TEXT, SO GIVE THEM LOTS  AND LOTS OF THAT.  (To check what a bot sees in your pages, use this coolest Spider Simulator Tool developed by the cutest Google Webmaster geek I ever saw in the net.  This tool will examine your page’s content, the number of words you used, will show your keywords, will record your keyword’s density etc.   So more or less you get an idea if you’re on the right track.)

You need to do two very crucial steps to qualify for Adsense.

1.   Your site has to meet the Google Webmaster’s Guidelines and adhere to Adsense policies.

2.   Submit a site that has interesting and useful topics, a site that stands above others’.  A site that will land visitors when they look up  your keywords in Google’s search and then beseech the holiest of all holies that Google distinguishes your site’s potential and usefulness to warrant an approval.  In other words, pray that Google favors your site.

The Google Webmaster’s Guidelines is a compendium of ‘standard procedure’ on what web-mastering is all about.  You may think that these are just guidelines or a bit of a manual and you feel that you could do without it, you’re wrong.  Following the Webmaster’s Guidelines is sacred and imperative if you plan to have Adsense on your site.  Pay close attention to verifying ownership, creating a site map, preventing broken links, learning about traffic and page speed, redirects, content-scraping, robots.txt, creating friendly 404s,  uses of frames and flash, minimizing image sizes without sacrificing quality, rich snippets among all guidelines.

Believe me, for a mommy like me, learning and adhering to the Webmaster’s Guidelines WAS A LOT OF WORK!  And I almost collapsed in excitement every time I test keyword searches in the Google search engine and find my posts landing on the first page.  I also treated my little boy with chocolate cake the first time I saw my images indexed in images.google.com

The Google Adsense Policies on the other hand are program criteria that dilettante publishers like us have to follow.  Basically, the policies show us the kind of content Google wants and don’t want to see in our websites.

A Detailed Discussion of How I Understand Adsense Policies

get adsense

Adsense Policies

Don’t, I repeat don’t take Adsense policies as a joke.  They are seriously implementing their policies and you’re expected to seriously follow them as well.  This is, if you want Adsense in your site.  A lot has published articles about the technical side of getting Adsense approval, so allow me to discuss the content policy instead.

Policy on Copyrighted Images

What is a copyrighted material?  I’m overwhelmed by the realization that a lot of publishers do not know what copyrighted materials are.  Copyrights is some form of protection given to the creators of ‘original works authorship’.  For example, you can’t sleep at night, feeling a bit dramatic and poetic and you decided to make a poem.  You automatically hold copyrights to that poem you just created.  If you decide to upload it on your blog, and somebody copied it and displayed your poem in his blog without your permission, this person is already violating your copyrights to the poem.  Poems, song lyrics, songs, articles, images, videos are examples of materials that have copyrights.

How would you know if a material is copyrighted or not?  Well, any material you did not create yourself is assumed to be copyrighted.

Adsense will reject your site right away if it detects a single copyrighted image.  Remember, Adsense is a serious business; they will not put ads in a site that infringes copyrights to avoid possible legal implications in the future.  What else, they will not tolerate publishers who ‘steal’ other people’s work.  If you have copyrighted images, remove them, and get creative.  At times when I can’t provide specific images pertinent to my post (because they’re impossible to get unless I go scuba diving or I visit Heaven to capture the image of an angel), I make my son draw them.  That way, I’m assured that my material is owned by me and I hold copyrights to them.  I don’t use copyrighted images in my site, not even a single one.

For me, borrowing images even from creative commons isn’t an option.  Sticking to the spirit of ‘originality’, I squeeze whatever creativity is in me and use it to come up with my own images.  You see the images in this particular post?  I cut letters from old gadget brochures and put them together on a bond paper, colored the background with oil pastel crayons, then took a picture of it.  Although I am discussing Adsense,  I dare not ‘borrow’ any Google Adsense trademark logo for fear of copyrights infringement.  My methods of creating my own images maybe tedious, but then again, they’re original, and originality my friend, is what will get you Adsense.

Now this part is funny, many publisher use copyrighted  images and stamp their sources’ name under the images thinking that by doing so, they are being honest about borrowing it.  Well, Adsense or not, you have no right to display images that are not yours without permission from the copyrights holder.  Much more with Adsense, they will require you to show a written agreement stating that the owners of the images are giving you a go to use their materials.  Simply stamping your source’s name on your pages make you an honest thief, but a thief just the same.

So okay, you’ve solved the copyrights issue by showing a written license agreement, how come you still can’t get that much coveted approval?  It’s because you haven’t solved the much bigger problem which is ‘duplicated material’. Link to Google’s Policy about Copyrighted Materials

Duplicated Materials

Anything you display in your site that is duplicated in other sites.  This could be a paragraph of text, a whole article, images and videos.  If you have duplicated materials, it will tell the bots that your site isn’t offering original content and will reject your application right away.  If you have 2 blogs with same identical content, you have to cancel the other one and wait for it to drop from Google’s search engine index before you submit your site for review, otherwise both sites will show and your site will be flagged for ‘duplication’.

Do not submit your site’s articles and posts to other online communities with the same niche including wikis.

If you have a bunch of writers, scan each of their articles for duplication and plagiarism before you publish their materials.

This goes for images too.  It’s okay to use images from Creative Commons or licensed copyrighted materials, as long as you keep them in a minimum count.  Lets say a ratio of 2:10, ten original images and 2 from CC.  If all your images are borrowed, most probably, the bots will flag you for image duplication.  Again, having no original value, therefore not adding anything new to the web. In the end, its still best to use your own articles,  images and videos.  Why is Adsense so strict on this policy?  Well I guess because advertisers demand that their ads be served only in sites with original content.

Policy on Family-Friendliness

Adsense will reject your site if you have contents not fit for the consumption of a 7-year-old child.  These contents include anything and everything ‘sensitive’ you won’t feel comfortable discussing in front of your children.

“I have a beauty blog!  How come I’m being rejected for ‘adult’ content?”  One publisher asked.

The culprit most likely is nail polish or the lipstick’s color.  Check them out.  Manufacturers like to brand their lipsticks with playful names and the bots often conclude them ‘adult-y.

Link to Google’s Policy on Family-Friendliness

Site-Age

Adsense is requiring 6 months minimum site age for applications coming from Asian countries.  It should be for a year if you ask me.  I believe this policy should be applied to all countries around the globe and not only in Asia.  If you are North American or European, the site-age requirement doesn’t apply to you.   Unfair to Asians?  Well I didn’t look at it that way.  I was happy about the 6-months rule because I used my 6 months to beef up my blog with posts and it bought me a lot of time to check and double check if every single page in my site is policy-compliant.

I also believe that this policy is implemented to isolate spammers from serious publishers.  But that’s just me.  If there is other reason for this, please enlighten me.  

Link to Google’s Policy on Site-Age

Originality of Content

this is the hardest criteria a publisher has to wrestle with, and I would like to stress on this topic very much.  Adsense demands only ORIGINAL content from a publisher. I repeat, If you have plans on applying for Adsense, your blog has to have original and unique articles.  NO COPYING.  NO CONTENT-SCRAPING. Do not write about topics you have no personal experience in or personal involvement.  Most publishers get rejected because of content originality.  Example:

  • They write about top 10 geniuses of their time when they’ve never met these geniuses personally.
  • They write about gadget reviews when they never owned the gadgets.
  • They give medical tips when they’re not  doctors.
  • They write about job listings when they’re no- HR manager of a company that’s opening up job oppurtunities.
  • They blog about celebrity gossips when they have never met the celebrities and never interviewed them personally.
  • They write about airplanes when they’ve never rode in one.
  • They blog about tourist travel destinations when they’ve never been to those places themselves. 

I hope you get my drift. 

Their sites get rejected because they don’t have personal involvement with the topic they’re writing about, so most likely, they come up with scraped contents from other sites, and most likely again, they will be borrowing images elsewhere the net, violating copyrights.   And this, my friend is the biggest NO-NO for Adsense.  Publish only articles you originally thought about and you personally wrote.

  • Discuss cars and car mechanisms if you’re a car mechanic.
  • Discuss food if you’re a cook, a chef or a mom or this is your passion.
  • Discuss health if you’re a doctor.
  • Discuss gadget reviews if you bought the gadget and would like to share your experience with it with the whole world.
  • Discuss about whales if you’re an ocean-conservation enthusiast who is personally involved with whales conservation.

I guess what I want to say here is, you ought to be an authority in the topics you write about.  Write only topics you are personally involved with like your hobbies, your job, your home, your passion, your pets, your doll collection,  or whatever you hold dear inside your old glory box.

Don’t write about Saint Peter if you never met, saw, talked to Saint Peter, even if he’s your favorite saint.  Chances are, you’ll be scraping religious books (contents are also available online) or Wikipedia.

I am a shark/whale-lover, and there’s nothing in this world that I’d like to do but to write about them.  I dare not, however.  Why? Because I’ve never seen a real whale even!  Wait til I join Sea Shepherd, Greenpeace or NatGeo. :D

Honestly, a publisher who happens to be a key-master and who blogs about his job experience making keys has more chances of getting his application approved than a publisher who blogs about gadget reviews, celebrity gossips, or life-insurances but scrapes his content from authority sites.

I hope at this point, I am able to get my message across.

Do not duplicate content by using frames.  Bots are specially designed not to see content inside frames (to discourage showing copyrighted materials by framing other site’s content).

Keep your articles exclusive to your site.  Do not publish your articles in other sites because the bots will detect any duplication.  Be it a sentence, a paragraph or a whole article.  If you publish your articles both in your site and in other websites, your site loses not only its value in the web but also its uniqueness.   This rule goes for images and videos too.

Originality and exclusivity of articles are crucial for Adsense approval.

Substantiality of Content

This topic is another hot water for most hopeful Adsense publishers.  Your site’s individual pages and the whole of your website has to have ‘substantial’ content.  Unluckily, there is no standard count of word usage stated so no one can really define how substantial is ‘substantial’.  A good rule of the thumb is to write interesting, useful articles as lengthy as 1000 words. By the way, you are at least expected to submit with a site with 6 months worth of posts.  So if you blog 3 times a week at the very least, you’ll have 72 posts, which is decent content enough.  I personally submitted vittlesnvisuals.com when it was already 80-post strong.

Okay, this seems to be over-acting.  But if you’re serious about monetization, you will want to write lengthy articles because you can insert your keywords more and allow them to naturally flow in your posts.  The bots will love you for giving them an ocean of text to swim in.  Writing lengthy posts will also ensure that Google Adword advertisers can serve significant ads in your pages.

ALL your pages will be crawled randomly, so it gives me to say that you should ensure that all your pages have substantial text content in them.  A single page with a bunch of images and no text content will sink your application even if you have 500 other lengthy posts.

Oh and another thing, bots can’t see images.  They are designed to calculate text and not pictures.  If you submit a site with pages rich in images but with no text content, your page will be seen as empty, therefore, insufficient, therefore a sinker.

Contact Pages and Site Maps are expected to be non-content pages, and are not required to be beefy with text as long as you label them as such.  A site map however is required content along with a Privacy Policy that practically states that you’re allowing Google to do their thingy in your site.

Be careful with the sites you link with.  All sites you link with will be indexed as part of your site and whatever violations these sites commit against Google Adsense policies will be on your head.

Write in a language that the review bots will understand.  Here’s a list of accepted languages.  Here’s a catch though, a English-oriented website, that has pages that contain only  images and no text will also appear as gibberish to a review bot.  Also, take care of the Latin placeholders ‘lorem ipsum’, make sure to remove them before you submit your site for review.  Also note the comments made by your visitors — if your visitors left comments in your native language not presently supported by Adsense, this could trigger ‘unacceptable language’ rejection.

Page view and traffic DO NOT play a decisive role in the Adsense approval process.  But before you apply, at least make sure that you’re getting around a hundred visitors a day.  How should you do this?  You can achieve organic traffic by following the Google Webmaster’s Site Traffic Guidelines.  Although traffic from social networking sites are good, they are not really considered as ‘organic’.  Why is this?  Well it’s because your visitors did not search for your keywords from the search engines, therefore they did not visit your site out of pure interest.  They dropped by your site because you posted your article somewhere.  Google considers traffic from Facebook, twitter, squidoo and other social networks to be peer-oriented, therefore they are just helping you get traffic.  This isn’t the kind of traffic Google wants.  Google would appreciate a website with 200 organic visitors a day versus a site that gets 1000 visitors from social networks.

A friendly-sitemap is always a bright idea to have in your site.  This will allow your visitors to access the entire content of your site from 1 static page.  I personally dislike websites or blogs that doesn’t provide a friendly-sitemap.  Ooops, remember though, an xml sitemap is different from a friendly-sitemap.  An xml sitemap is for the Google bots to easily map your content for indexing, while a friendly-sitemap is for your visitors.

Remove ALL login codes in your site.  Bots will stop at login codes and will not decide to crawl the rest of your site.  Anyway, you can put it back when your site is fully approved.

Frequent the Adsense Forum, ask enlightenment from the Top Contributors, stalk the posts and the threads.  Read the what and the what-nots, visit the sites getting rejected, visit the sites getting approved.  Compare the data you see, connect the dots, examine the sites’ qualities and you will get a clearer picture of what makes an Adsense-worthy site.

Think of Adsense as a customer, and think of yourself as a store.  You can’t force customers to buy from you, yes?  So instead of whining why Adsense doesn’t patronize you, think of ways to make your site likeable and useful to them.

Adsense is applicable only for top level domains.  You can’t apply for Adsense if your url is a sub-domain.  However, you are permitted to apply for Adsense in Blogspot as it  is another Google product.

Niches that hardly sell for Adsense for a year now (In other words, don’t write about these topics)

  • Computer Software tutorials
  • Gadget reviews
  • Lose Weight, Health  sites
  • Beauty blogs
  • Recipe Sites
  • Job sites
  • News, celebrity gossip sites
  • Financial Investments
  • Money-making online

I personally followed all these information I stated here.  If you want better chances of running Adsense in your site, I suggest you do the same.

You must be thinking what authority do I have to write about Adsense, well I got my Adsense approval the first application try, that should at least prove that I know what I’m talking about.  Do not believe people when they say it’s easy to get Adsense, or there’s a sure way to get Adsense.  Maybe at this point, I have alreary established that there is no piece-of-cake approach to getting an approval, and there is never guarantee of an approval.  There is a clause in the Adsense Terms of Service that says “Adsense reserves the right to refuse participation of any applicant.“  Makes me say that even if you followed all policies by heart, if they don’t like your site, they’ll refuse you.   Didn’t I mention that you should also pray that Adsense finds your site to their liking?  However, following the Webmaster’s Guidelines and the Adsense policies will give you a better chance at it.

 

approval
So finally, the several months of sleepless nights and laboring on your blog at last paid off and you got yourself an Adsense account.  In my case, lots of ingredients-buying, cooking, article-writing, picture taking, picture editing, image uploading, learning Web-mastering and a lot more.  Congratulations! Adsense liked you site.  You can relax a little now.  But don’t get too comfortable yet, because you’ll be preparing yourself for a more serious endeavor.  Of course the fun begins now because you’ll start earning, but it’s not easy at it looks like.  You can’t just leave your blog and let it earn by itself.  You’ll have to take care of your Adsense account. 

Why?

1.  Well because you worked hard to get your account and you don’t want to see it go down the dog kennel.  

2.  A person is allowed only to have 1 Adsense account in his lifetime.  If your account gets disabled, that’s the end of the road for you and Adsense.  And this one goes for me too. (Chilling)

Ways to Take Care of your Adsense account

Here are some ways to take care of your Adsense account

1.  Take care of your Adsense account by NOT CLICKING YOUR OWN ADS.  You don’t want to do this.  Adsense bots are like hawks monitoring clicks on your ads the same way you are monitoring your ads’ activities.  If they detect anomalous clicks on your ads, they will not think twice about disabling your account.  Remember, you are not Google’s customer; it’s the other way around.  Google is your customer.  If you cannot protect your ads from yourself, they will leave.  Google’s customers are the advertisers that pay them good money to serve ads in your site.  So don’t click your own ads.

  • Don’t ask friends and relatives to click your ads.
  • Don’t click your own ads even if you want to see the latest skin-moisturizing product shown in your ad.
  • Don’t click your own ads to balloon your earnings.
  • Don’t click your ads if your pet goldfish died and you somehow want to feel good.
  • Don’t click your own ads even if you’re feeling bored one afternoon and got curious about what would happen if you click your ads.

Don’t click your own ads for ANY REASON.  Don’t employ the services of click farms too.  Even if they claim that Google wouldn’t know.  Believe me, Google will know.

2.  Take care of your Adsense account by installing a Statcounter application in your blog.  It’s free.  By using it, you can monitor visitor activities in your site.  Statcounter records visitor IP, location, time spent in your blog, keyword search and many more.  You’ll want to install this because Statcounter is helpful and will at least give you an idea if a click was valid or not because it shows visitor statistics. 

3.  Take care of your Adsense account by binding your Google Analytics to your Adsense dashboard.  Google analytics will tell you the pages that referred visitors to your website but as well as what ad-serving pages were clicked.  So the trio of your Statcounter, your Google analytics and your Adsense dashboard pretty much takes care of the statistics you’ll need to study so you could protect your account.

4.  Take care of your Adsense account by being careful of how you promote your site.   You may be tempted to promote your site in the many social networking sites.  Although this isn’t really illegal, Adsense will frown upon clicks made by visitors referred by social networks.  It’s in your best interest to get ad clicks coming from visitors who searched for your site organically than ad clicks that are considered to be made by peers. 10-20 ad clicks referred by Facebook is a cause for alarm.

5.  Take care of your Adsense account by using the Allowed Sites feature in your Adsense dashboard’s Account Settings.  If you feel that your ads are under attack, remove your site’s URL in the ‘Allowed Sites’.  Yours ads will still show in your site, but ad clicks will not be reported.  You won’t be earning in the meantime, but you won’t get your account disabled.  Whoever is attacking your ads will soon get tired of it and you may put your URL back in the ‘Allowed Sites’ list.  Using this feature is also the best defense against publishers who steal your ad codes and serve them in non-compliant sites to sabotage you.

6.  Take care of your Adsense account by continuing to write interesting posts.  There’s a whole world of audience out there and you’ll want to land some of them in your site.  The more posts you write, the more keywords your write, the more keywords you write, the more chances of people finding your site.  The more visitors you get, the more people will link to your site, the more your site is trusted, and the higher your page ranks, the more Google will trust your site’s credibility.

(Note:  Although back linking is a gorgeously easy and enticing way to make your page rank higher,  this is frowned upon by Google.  For Google, creating useful and interesting content to build a following is still the best way to go.)

7.  Take care of your Adsense account by sticking to spirit of writing original content and staying compliant with Adsense policies.  It doesn’t mean that you could go wild scraping content after content left and right the internet after you finally get your approval.   Google will disable your account if  publishers report your site for scraping their contents.

8.  Take care of your Adsense account by not implementing your ads in NON-compliant sites.  The Ad codes you acquired through legitimate approval process can be implemented to any site you have access to. However, Adsense expects that you will not hog your codes by serving ads in sites that violates Adsense policies.  Don’t serve your ad codes in sites that have copyrighted materials, duplicated contents, insufficient text content and not family-friendly topics.

On a personal note, I made an extra effort to protect my account.

My friend Goran wrote a snippet for me so I would not click my ads accidentally. This is how the code snippet works:  It hides my ads from me whenever I’m logged in on my WordPress account.  That way, no accidental clicks will be made while I’m working on my posts.  This could also prove to be a valuable proof for Adsense that I am doing my best to protect their business in my site, including protection from invalid clicks made by me.  Just in case they disable my account, I could appeal my case with concrete proof that I was a good publisher with intentions of a long business relationship with them.

 

  • And to my little boy Makus — Mommy has gone through all these webmastering and adsense-ing  for you.  One day, you’ll appreciate it. 
  • And to Marvin –  6 months of laboring on this site is proof enough that I could do it.  I hope I made you happy.

I SEE TO IT THAT I VISIT SITES OF PEOPLE WHO VISIT MY BLOG AND READ MY POSTS.
