Well, this is a follow up article for my previous article with the same title “How to get Google Adsense in less than 2 days“. If you have not read that, It is highly advised to read that before this.
This is for all those who have either limited Adsense account through YouTube or going to apply first time for Google Adsense. As per Google Adsense Policies , every blog/site that is applying for Adsense must follow these simple guidelines
1. How many Topics Should I cover
There is rule for how many niche you should target but we would highly recommend you, Not to involve yourself in too many niche initially, You must target your article on your primary niches and try to write your best in that. Your article will bring very healthy traffic to your website. The idea behind limited niche is – Let them think you are going to be an authority very soon in that particular niche.
How much Content is sufficient for Google Adsense
Well there is no such limit or direction is defined but as per general perception, at-least 20-25 medium size article containing 800-1200 words is more than sufficient. This limit is also not a very strict parameter but in this word limit you are required to define your article in first 200-300 words rest words must be used to explain.
What about the heading Headlines
Your article should contain its main heading in h1 tag as well as other important heading must fall with h2-to h4. It is also observed that listing of point also help people to digest your articles very easily. So if your article have some point related to any heading then they must be there with proper listing.
Images and How to Use them
There should be at-least one image per article and that image must contain a proper name ie if your article is related to “Wallpaper WordPress theme to generate easy money” then image name should have your keyword, alt text as well as its description.
If you are borrowing that image then a proper credit must be given to the owner either in the caption below the image or at the end of your article. 21 places to find out free Images for bloggers is a must read article.
What about Videos
Well videos will help you to get some quick eye balls from the fellow bloggers but in my personal opinion, only add related high quality videos on your Article.
WordPress has the facility to add whole video in your post, You are only required to just copy -paste the URL of that Video from YouTube and Vimeo.
Any other Content that is helpful to Get Adsense Quickly
About Us Page
Every one who is desirous to apply for Adsense must have an about us page on his /her website. About us must contain your recognizable Photograph along with a brief description of you or your company and a proper Gmail address etc. It does not matter how you looks like but people out there want to know who is actually behind the site/blog.
If you are little bit confused how and what to write in an about us page.Kindly visit my own about us page
NOTE : Remember this very clearly that your contact us page will be scanned by the Adsense Team before approval so it must be easily accessible from your home page.
A privacy actually explain to your readers about what they will receive on your Blog, and how the information can be used, how you can use their filled information, what they should do and what they should not.
2. Role of Theme
Do not try to create Haffington post like website from the first day ,instead of that, try to locate the most simple theme for your website/blog with two column. One column must be dedicated to your contents and another column must host your widgets and other details.
You can use our own free Adsense ready WordPress theme samriddhi for your start-up.
Navigation should be at the top of your website below the logo. Try to choose simple navigation system as this will not add extra coding thus keep your website’s code -text ratio in a very healthy proportion.
Home page of your website must show the excerpt of your full content but try not to show auto generated content from your article. If you are on WordPress then you can clearly understand what I mean, Instead of that try to write manual excerpt of every blog post.
Featured Images are another point that must be taken very good care of. It is observed that most free WordPress themes does not supply alt text to its featured images by default.
The recommended size of your featured images are from 100 x 100px to 150 x150px and its up to you where you want to show i.e left hand side or right hand side.
It is also observed that some bloggers do not show the date of publication on their blog post like we do but as a newbie you should not do that. Instead of that you are requested to show date of publication along with author name + category on each post.
3. SEO and other Points
If you are on WordPress then we would highly recommend you to install Yoast SEO plugin, this will quickly help you to recognize the main point you should work in your article.
Jet-pack and Digg-digg are another exceptional good social sharing plugins on WordPress that can help you to share your contents on the social media. Social signals are one of the major SEO factor in Google and other search engines so you can not ignore them.
Ads Before Adsense
It is observed that newbies are desperate to make some quick money online, in order to that they start showing some random ads ( sometimes that violate Google Adsense policies ) from various ads network that might kill their blog in its infancy. Try not to add these add network and let Google feel the only owner of your generated content.
Paid Traffic and Adsense
Not even think in your wildest dream about it. Google hates the sites that are getting paid traffic and mostly penalizes them so there is not a damn chance of getting approved by Adsense for a site that is getting paid traffic. Y You can bring traffic from Search Engines using or any other way you want but if you want to earn via Google Adsense the right way, paid traffic is not a solution. Also note, that Google do not accept site which gets traffic from illegal sources.
Age and Email Verification :
This is a very common problem with most new bloggers that are less than 18. They write incorrect age and get into trouble. Use your correct date of birth and age while applying for Google Adsense account. If you do not have that then do not forget to apply through your father/mother’ name. In that case use your mother/father Image in contact us Page.
Because Google Adsense is not for people who are under 18. Some people realize this problem after being disproved a few times without any legitimate reason. So I advise you to be accurate while typing your age.
