Make money using Adsense

Many website publishers apply for Google AdSense accounts due to the fact that it is one of the biggest providers of internet ads which pay significantly higher than others out there. Google AdSense also offers fast and easy way to display contextual ads to website publishers of all sizes. However, more and more people get denied on their application unlike those days when it is relatively easy to acquire an account. Here are the top 10 reasons why your application for Google AdSense gets denied.

1. You did not read the terms and conditions. That's right! Most people simply treat Google's terms and conditions lightly without knowing that even the smallest violations to it can cause denied applications.

2. Site content is not original or will not convert well for advertisers. If you built your site for the purpose of Google AdSense revenue, then you should pick your content more carefully. Majority of the reasons why the application gets denied is content. Personal sites will most likely get denied because it does not need advertising.

3. Site is not dynamic. Basically, Google wants dynamic web pages where it is constantly updated like blogs. This helps bring in more potential visitors on your website everyday and hence more clicks on ads.

4. Site is not yet developed. Patience is a virtue if you wait until your site is well developed before you apply for Google AdSense, and then the chance of getting approved is high. Most new web publishers make the mistake of applying for an account even before the site is officially launch that why they get denied. Make sure that your site is complete with no dead links and is properly structured. If other people say your site is ugly, you should listen and make necessary adjustments.

5. Site is not yet indexed in Google. This is something to be checked before sending your application. Make sure that your site is indexed especially for those who use proxy or site forwarding.

6. Site is down when Google attempted to review your application. If you run your own domain, make sure that you site is up and running 24/7 during the approval period. But if you just use a blog site and it was unfortunately down when the specialists tried to review your application, then you just have to re-apply.

7. Domain name contains trademark. Google do not want to place their ads on sites with trademark within the domain name. And if you have a trademark, why would you need an account in the first place?

8. Information provided on the application is incorrect. Don't let typo errors ruin your future. Double check all your entries to ensure accuracy on the information you provide.

9. You were banned or blacklisted before. If Google banned your account in the past, you will not get approval unless you contact them prior to application. It depends on the gravity of your previous violation if they will reconsider to give you another shot.

10. Lastly, applications get denied by mistake. You just have to keep on trying.

I would like to add another reason to the list as for new program policies of AdSense team.
11.Site is brand new. If your site is not old around 6 months AdSense team will not approve your application.

Indeed! I got rejected 3x already although my site is fully developed and have hundreds of traffic daily. And the reason I reckon was because I haven't met the 6 months old condition. I will have to re-submit again in a few months time. Fingers crossed...

Actually indexing has nothing to do with Adsense application. I got my Adsense approval even though my blog had just one blog post, and was not indexed at all.

Hi scheng1. Which host were you using? I was using Bloggers and I had my site up for over six months, had applied for Adsense the same time I published my site, and I got an email today saying my application was denied.
