Why Does My Site Keep Getting Rejected by Adsense?


While you might think this is a question that only Adsense themselves can answer they do give clues as to why a site has been rejected, with the most common reason being insufficient content, content quality issues or even site navigation issues! So what does this all mean? I hope to break down each reason for Adsense rejecting your site and explain it in as simple terms as I can...



Why Was My Site Rejected For Insufficient content


The problem people have here is what exactly is classed as "Significant" content? The best rule of thumb here is to stick with the 5-30 rule. That means you should have at least 5 pages and at least 30 posts. I choose this number is that is most likely to get your site approved. While Adsense will happily approve sites with less it is consistency in content what is the most important. If you only blog once a week make sure what is what you stick to, even when you are awaiting Adsense approval.

Why Was My Site Rejected For Content Quality Issues


The biggest problem people have here is not knowing what "Quality Content" is! While only Google themselves really know what they class as quality there are a few things to consider. Is it original? It's OK to use other peoples content, provided you add a significant amount to it. Try to stick to no more than 10% "borrowed" or "aggregate" content to 90% original. Also, mix up your media forms as much as you can. All pictures or all videos are no good, you need some text and that text needs other things as well. Wha the word "quality" doesn't mean is a 100,000 essay on a subject matter. It can be a short paragraph with a picture and video added, just as long as those things mentioned are original content.

Why Was My Site Rejected For Having a Site Navigation Issues


This rejection reason is often page (or lack of) related. Make sure you have a contact page, at least some sort of menu and maybe some tags and category pages as well. This is not so much about making it easier for Adsense, it is more about making it easier for the page viewer to navigate around your site. Even something as small as a search box can help resolve this matter.

Why Was My Site Rejected For Having Issues with Your Traffic Sources


When most people get rejected for this reason it is pretty easy to guess they are using some sort of scam to try and gain Adsense earnings. 99% of all people who apply to join Adsense won't have this problem as they are not trying to cheat the system, but if your site does get rejected for it its just a simple matter of ascertaining where your site traffic is coming from. If less than %50 isn't coming from Google search itself you have a problem.

Why Was My Site Rejected For Unsupported language?


While there is a list of languages Adsense does support (see that here) there isn't a list of languages Adsense doesn't support. It doesn't matter what country you are from, you can target any language there is. So if yours gets rejected for this reason try translating it to one that Adsense does support, even if that means learning a new language.
