My Experience on Applying for Google Adsense this 2019


Not so long ago, I got my first Google Adsense approved. It took three attempts for me to get approved by Google Adsense. In March this 2019, I started making as many articles as I can for my WordPress with 600-1000 words per post. Just before I started this blog I did a lot of research and readings on how to build my blog site and how Google Adsense will approve it.

Through Google Adsense, we can earn money from our website by showing ads, but of course, Google Adsense must approve web page content first before you can post advertisements from Google Adsense. Google Adsense works by displaying ads to the website based on the content to the visitors of the sites. Many web authors chose Google Adsense to monetize their website, as this is the most reliable and well-known advertising services.

Based on my experience, it takes time and patience before Google Adsense approved my website. I am writing this to help those people like me who want to start building websites and hopeful of earning in the process by successfully setting websites and get approval from Google Adsense. Below are my journey and my thoughts on how you can get the approval from Google Adsense:

  • Get a Domain for your website. Think of a unique name that’s not easy to forget.
  • Choose a system to manage your website. (I used WordPress as it is free and dashboard is user-friendly)
  • Make sure that your website has the “ABOUT US,” “CONTACT US,” and “PRIVACY POLICY” page. On the ABOUT US page usually narrates some facts about the author of the website, indicates your CONTACT information so the audience can easily reach the author of the site. Indicates the Privacy Policy of your web page and don’t forget to include the policy of Google Adsense.
  • Start building your articles not less than 500 words per post. Be specific about choosing the topic. At least discuss content in one category only. (For example, my website is about traveling, and I focus on our travel within the scope of Asia.) Don’t copy from another website as for sure Google Adsense will not allow it. Mine got approved with 14 blog posts with 600-1000 words per posts.
  • Design your website with mobile-friendly themes and with easy site navigation.

The following are the time line of my application to Google Adsense:

I sent my first-ever application of Google Adsense on May 6, 2019, and I had nine posts on my website. They replied on the 16th day, and it was May 22, 2019. They sent me an email informing me that I was unable to comply with Adsense requirements. So what I did is to recheck all the pages, re-edit and added more posts. Google Adsense will not explain the detailed why you get disapproved. Instead, you will need to find, think, and check as much as you could why your website is disapproved. My second application was on May 24, 2019, that time I had 12 blog posts on my websites. Google Adsense replied on the 28th day, and it was June 20, 2019. Another disapproval email from Google Adsense. After I received the email, I logged my Adsense account, and I saw information that I was disapproved of due to the “Valuable Inventory: Under construction” problem. What I did was I double-check all my link addresses on all my posts and made sure that the link was all functional. That time I added more posts and a total of 14 posts in my websites before I submitted another application for Google Adsense. It was June 24, 2019, when I sent my third application. On the 22nd day after I sent my third application, and it was on July 17, 2019, I finally received the approval of Google Adsense. I waited for almost 2 months before I got the approval. Take note that the reply from Google Adsense is unpredictable and may vary from the different span of time, my husband got approved by Google Adsense by one application only and gets a reply just within the day and with only two posts from his website. But for me, it takes time before I get the approval. Application to Google Adsense is unlimited so you can try and try until you get approved. It was a great relief that after all my hard work, Google Adsense finally approved my website. But of course, this is only the beginning and will still have a long process before you start earning from Google Adsense. I hope you too will get the approval from Google Adsense the soonest. I wish you Good luck!
