Basic Requirements for AdSense Approval on Blog

As a blogger myself with years of experience, I will honestly guide you based on my personal learning and experience.

Before you apply for AdSense Program, make sure your blog meets the following basic requirements.

1. Your blog should at least be receiving Zero Traffic

Amazed? Yes! Honestly, you do not need any traffic for AdSense approval on your blog. What I am trying to say is; traffic on your blog is not a prerequisite for Adsense Approval.

When I applied for AdSense and got approved, I was getting 50 visitors per day to my blog. Even, if I had less than 10 visitors, I would have been approved. It is because I was fulfilling all the other conditions that Adsense requires before they approve your blog in their program.

So, now let’s talk about those necessary conditions.

2. Publish minimum of 18 Posts before you apply

As I am guiding you on the basis of my personal experience, I had only 18 posts on my blog when I got Adsense Approval for it. At that time, my blog was hosted on Blogger.

Let me assure you, I have seen many cases where blogs with 12 posts were approved by AdSense.

Hence, it is not the quantity or number of posts, but the quality that matters!

So, how should the posts be written for instant AdSense Approval? Let’s discuss this under the following heading.

3. The Articles on your Blog should meet the following conditions

The posts on your blog must meet the following conditions in order to obtain AdSense approval.

  • Each post on your blog must contain at least 500 words. It is better to publish lengthy posts if you seek Adsense approval instantly.
  • The posts must be original and unique. Google does not tolerate plagiarized content, nor does it tolerate rephrasing/rewriting/article spinning. Make sure you present your own original ideas in your posts.
  • Pictures, videos, charts, etc used in the posts must not be copied from other sources. Copying others’ property is illegal. In case you are using pictures or videos taken from other sources, give them credit. Stealing others’ content and property is against Google’s policies. Do not violate them or you will be penalized.
  • Your published post must provide value to the readers. In return, Google will value your posts.
  • The posts must be organized properly under their respective categories. Do not mix your posts under the same page. Make sure you add different pages for different categories.
  • Last but not least, presentation matters. For example, I made my best effort to make this post easily readable and understandable. I used simple language. Furthermore, I broke the whole article into multiple paragraphs. I organized the sentences into different bullet points.

If you are fulfilling all these points related to your post, Google AdSense will never reject your application provided you are fulfilling a few other conditions as discussed below.

4. Responsive and AdSense-Friendly Theme

Use an AdSense Ads-friendly and responsive theme on your blog/website. Such themes are easily available to use for free.
