Is My Site Ready For Adsense Approval?

This is a question that a lot of people ask themselves and ask me. Today I will tell you five things you need to make sure your site has if you want that all-important Adsense site approval. These are not complicated tips, they are the basics of getting Adsense approval and if you can't tick at least 3 of these requirements below you shouldn't bother applying for Adsense. So with that in mind, let's get your site ready for Adsense approval...

Site Navigation (Menus)

This is often something people misunderstand, but yet it is probably one of the simplest things to check. You need to make sure you have a menu, or at the very least 5 pages of navigation. So a contact page, an "about me/us" page, main categories, a disclaimer page or even some social media links. Having just a few of these is enough to clear you though this requirement, but obviously, the more main menu items you have, the easier your site will be to navigate and the better the chance of Adsense approval!

Site Navigation (Links)

While it is all well and good having some of the menu items I mentioned above, having broken links on a site can counteract all the hard work you have done making those menu items! You need to run a broken link checker on your site as Adsense will reject your application for as little as 5% broken links on your site! If you only have a few links, that is not a lot at all! So make sure they all work and any redirects that need doing are fixed BEFORE applying for Adsense.

Content (Amount)

How much content do you have? Is it enough for Adsense approval? You should be aiming for at least 30-50 posts, at least 2 pages and a few different forms of media. So a lot of text, some images and maybe some social media work like videos, tweets or Facebook posts. If you don't have enough content Adsense will reject you, but not tell you why! It till just tell you that your site is unreachable or still in development. This will often mean it lacks content amount.

Content (Quality)

I will not go into what qualifies as "quality content" here, other than tell you to make sure your content is ORIGINAL! The important thing here is to fully understand what original content means and to make sure you have enough of it. So no spun posts, no aggregated content, just your own work, by your own hands. Oddly this is often the 2nd most popular reason peoples Adsense applications are rejected, with low content quantity being the first.

Content (Policies)

The last thing you need to check is that your content, your site adheres to all Adsense policies. So no content hat might cause harm to someone or something, nothing political, nothing adult, basically nothing that might cause offence to anyone else. If your site breaks one of these policies Adsense will not tell you which one, it will just tell you that it breaks the Adsense policies period. It is up to you to make sure the site doesn't because no-one else will.
