Getting accepted to adsense for new bloggers is hard these days. You know achieving adsense account is something like having regular pocket money for daily uses. Many suggest adsense is not a permanent game in making money online. I do agree with this. Google Adsense is part of achievements in blogging career but not the final achievement in blogging. Getting adsense account approved fastly is something that happens easily in our dreams especially for new bloggers.
New bloggers get into blogging, why? Thinking of money. How to earn? Now comes the word “Adsense” This is known to each and every blogger. But 30% of users who are using adsense account, don’t know all policies regarding their terms and conditions. Adsense means “money” to new bloggers. Obviously for me too. I too entered into this field to make money online from blogging especially with google adsense. But things are harder than I thought. So the word “Money” means “ Adsense” even for me, a few months ago. But not now.
No doubt their are many ways to make money online without adsense. You better try for best alternatives for adsense if you can’t get adsense account. I recommend yahoo bing contextual ads and Infolinks. So as expected, I got my application rejected for the first time. Do you why? My blog doesn’t meet adsense policies. So rejected.
Why I am happy when my application rejected?
As usual, if application rejected, everyone search in google “My adsense application rejected. What to do?”. This is why most of blogger sign out from blogging. And some stick to it for rectifying issues and understanding their blogging mistakes. I stood in race and I am here today to share my experience how I got my adsense account approved after 4 times of repeated submissions.
The first one as said above rejected, due to website not complied with adsense policies. Why? Because, I have not read their terms and conditions and applied blindly as soon as I got a thought to apply for adsense. I applied within in one month after my domain registration date, got rejected. Then I went to their terms and conditions, read everything. And told to my heart, “You Idiot, you still have to work more to make your dreams come true”.
Second Time Disapproved
Second time disapproved again, why? I again applied before 6 months. Why I did this even after reading google adsense TOS. Because I found a post on shoutmeloud that his blog accepted within 4 months. So I thought to take a trial again this time. But rejected. Felt its ok. Let’s wait for six months. Again back to work. I applied in 3rd month.
The second time disapproved is due to low traffic. I understood it’s time to build online presence and get more traffic to my blog and started working on it. As expected, I worked to get traffic to my blog with in one month, I also drive traffic from United States to my blog. That made me happy.
Third Time Rejected
Waited for six months to get finished, this time I don’t want to get disapproved. So before applying I started to use my brain…haha lol… just kidding here. I just checked the required things to be ready to apply for adsense and finally submitted application. I was eagerly waiting for my account to get approved. First week gone with anxiety. Second week started.. I slowly forgot about adsense reply email. Third week, received an email for sponsored post request. While going through it, I saw +1 count in gmail unread inbox, immediately switched to it.
As expected, received email to place google ads in my blog for second review. I waited all over two weeks, then I got an email, you are rejected this time. But do you know what? Adsense not totally rejected me. It just sent a warning about few issues that made my application get rejected. So, adsense want me to remove copyright material in my blog, which was written few months back and resubmit my adsense application. I did not copy content, but adsense felt to be copyright material. So removed it.
Fourth Time Resubmitted my Adsense Application
Later resubmitted my application for second review. Again received email from adsense after four days of ad placement. This is totally different. Guess what? “Navigation”. Yes, navigation plays more important role compared to number of posts. So thought for an hour and checked few blogs of my friends, who’s website got recently approved to adsense. So made up a list of changes to be made for my website theme. Do you know, I am using a premium theme. But rejected due to improper navigation. It’s my mistake not theme.
So made changes to navigation and applied. I waited…, waited and waited.. It has been more than a week. I felt more tempered… I don’t know what to do.. Dived into facebook and started asking friends who got recently accepted for adsense. Posted status and tagging my facebook friends. They told patience should be increased. So, waited in peace. So, I was live in gmail when compared to social media. But, I did not received email.
Thinking of adsense, I got a comment on my recent post “How and Where to build quality backlinks to your blog?” I got a comment and about to reply it. I opened post page, replied to comment. Do you know what?…. Ads are live in this post. I noticed Godaddy domain ads are displaying below my post title. I was shocked.
Things to Remember :
- Adsense is not sending emails to all accepted accounts. Only a few get an email from adsense, that adsense account is fully activated.
- If ads started displaying, you almost got 95% of your account approved. Wait to get adsense confirmation email to your inbox.
I did not receive adsense email but ads are live. How I confirmed? I opened my adsense account, each time I open, I would get “your application received and its under review’. But instead, this time got a big bang.. there. The below is the screenshot..
So, this is how I got my adsense account fully approved after repeated rejections/disapprovals. But remember adsense in not a permanent way to make money online with your blogs. Its just a part of making money online. So, I should discuss two related topics, tricks to get adsense account approved fastly and how to understand and find solution to email sent from adsense team. My next articles would be on this. Stay Connected. And let me know how you felt when you got your adsense account. Drop a comment below. I will discuss number of posts, traffic and rest of details required to apply for adsense in my next post.
