Google Adsense Approval Requirements: 6 Things To Do Before Applying

Wondering about Google Adsense approval requirements?

Then you are in the right place.

There are certain things to do before applying for Google Adsense. In this post, we will see those minimum requirements.

Google Adsense is a top-quality advertisement network.

It is one of the most effective methods to monetize sites, especially blogs. Many bloggers try to do Google Adsense sign-up, but most of them fail to get approval.

Do you know why it happens?

In a sentence, it’s because of a policy violation.

They go through quite strict rules and requirements. So, we are bound to admit the rules to get the desired Google Adsense account.

Here are the Things to Consider Before Applying for Google Adsense.

Did you struggle a lot and unfortunately couldn’t make a way out?

This blog post is for you.

First of all, check Google Adsense policies.

There are thousands of tweaks we could make for a better blog.

But I am introducing the top 5 things that are generally measured by Adsense.

Choose Top-Level Domain Names

There is a ton of domain names available with different extensions.

Let you know that extension is the finishing element of a domain. As an example, my domain is onlinedecoded.com.

Here extension is .com.

You have already seen many variations in these extensions.

There are also many subdomains available. So, which one you would prefer for Google Adsense?

The top-level domain names are the root domains with such common extensions as com, org, net, etc.

The extension doesn’t matter a lot in this case. But we have to keep root domains. It is also possible to get approval for subdomains, but that is not safe.

Even getting an Adsense account with subdomains will be hard.

Why are you going through difficult strategies? Just grab a top-level domain at a low price and then apply effortlessly. 

Keep in mind that Adsense prohibits crack, adult, and gambling sites. So, never include any of these terms in your domain.

Produce a Helpful Amount of Unique Content

There is no such rule with an exact number of contents. But producing helpful and unique content is one of the Google Adsense approval requirements.

I heard that many people have got their Adsense with only 40-50 posts.

I also heard some others couldn’t get even with 500 posts.

So there is no exact number or limit for contents.

You won’t believe I have got my AdSense account with only 16 posts in another blog.

The domain was only 20 days old.

As there is no limit to content, you should create high-quality fresh content.

Google always loves fresh content. 

Duplicate and copyrighted content would be the main obstacles to not getting approved. 

I think you will be also interested to get a Google Adsense account with a very low number of content.

So, you have to write detailed and informative posts. Keep all of your blog categories filled with content.

Note: Many bloggers write 300-400 words and consider these as high qualities. But it is not exactly.

High-Quality content could solve all of the problems on the topic.

That’s why it is gonna longer.

Longer posts are always better. I will advise you to write posts with at least 800+ words.

Create Important Pages and Sections

A website or blog is full of useful pages and sections.

Some important pages are the contact, about, and terms page.

These improve usability and experience. The Google Adsense team will look for these pages because of the higher user experience. Let me describe how these pages work.

  • Contact Page: This is the page where the contact form and information are located. That is the way to approach the admin for any kind of help. The contact page will provide better usability.
  • About Page: The About page will provide the history of the blog and the founder. It is because sometimes the readers want to read about the owner of the blog. In this situation, it is important.
  • Terms and Conditions Page: This page is for specifying the rules of users. This page reveals how the users should interact, how they should use your blog etc. This type of page will help the Adsense team understand that the blog is strict with its policy. They would love to approve the blog in their program.

Make User and SEO-Friendly Blog Structure

A blog structure is another important thing that should be emphasized.

Google’s team would love a good user and SE crawlers-friendly structure. It is one of the major parts where they will look for sure.

A good structure means good navigation, typography, widget, logo, loading speed, bounce rate, and so on.

First of all choose a good blogging platform, with a user-friendly theme, optimize pages for search engines, and reduce loading time.

When you are done, just revise your website from the view of a reader. If you think the design is appreciated and helpful, the Google Adsense approval team would love to.

Some days ago, I did a WordPress vs Blogger comparison.

In that comparison, WordPress is the winner.

For WordPress, it would be easy to produce a beautiful structure. All things could be done just using a premium theme.

I prefer premium themes rather than free ones.

These themes will be previously optimized by the developer.

You should also use it if you want to produce an excellent structure. The recommended theme provider is GeneratePress.

Remove Other Ad Programs

In Google’s terms and conditions, it is clarified that they will not allow other programs with them. So, you have to make sure that there are no other ones when signing up for Google Adsense.

Many people would indeed love to use several programs for better earnings. But these will not work with Adsense except for a few.

I think this program is better than any other program. I wish you would give it a higher priority.

Other Tweaks That Would Be Appreciated If You Could

  • The recommended blog age is 6 months for applying. It would be higher or lower.
  • Make sure your blog is not blocked by Google.
  • Your age should be 18+ or you will be declined.
  • Don’t get paid traffic. There is no requirement for traffic.
  • Avoid copyrighted images. They will not allow blogs with copyrighted things.
  • Don’t make adult, gambling, and hacking sites.
  • Use English or other Adsense-safe languages for content.


That’s all about Google Adsense approval requirements.

Google Adsense is the biggest advertisement network and my favorite one too.

There are many programs but this one is beyond all. So, you should try this one first. If you fail, you could use the alternatives. But make the intention to get an approved Google Adsense account.

I tried to explain what we should do before the Google Adsense sign-up. I wish you would apply all of these for getting instant approval.
