Preparing your site to submit for approval for a Google AdSense account? Then you need to pay attention to your website before submitting it. New webmasters may tend to make a few mistakes which, in turn, could lead to their AdSense account application being rejected. So, before you sign up for Google Adsense, make sure you have paid attention to the topics listed below.
HAVE GOOD WEBSITE CONTENT
Whenever you submit a Google AdSense account, make sure your website has good quality content. Your website visitors come to your site because they can find good reading materials. That is what all visitors look for in a website. The Google AdSense evaluation staff is also looking for this aspect. They are looking at the content of your website when they are evaluating your site. Get it!
MAKE SURE YOUR WEBSITE IS 15-20 PAGES BEFORE SUBMITTING
Before you submit your site, make sure your site is at least 15-20 pages long. Google never recommended the minimum number of pages required before an account is approved; however, based on the experience of many new webmasters, it is highly recommended that you have at least 15-20 pages.
MAKE THE SITE EASY FOR NAVIGATION
Make sure that on each page you have at least one link that takes a visitor to the main site that has a navigation table. You don’t want a visitor to get lost within your site. This will also make it easy for visitors to find the information your site has to offer.
LAUNCH YOUR WEBSITE TO WORD WIDE WEB
This is another important topic. Make sure your website has been released to the world before submitting your Google AdSense application. Many new webmasters have submitted their Google AdSense application before their website is live on the Internet. Of course, your request will be rejected because your site could not be found on the Internet.
MAKE SURE YOUR SITE DOES NOT HAVE VIDEO, MP3 DOWNLOADS, NEWS GROUPS AND RESULTS IMAGES
All of the above matters will lead to copyright issues and Google has made it clear that they do not want to endorse any app with a website that has these materials.
MAKE SURE YOUR SITE DOES NOT CONTAIN OR IS ABOUT ANY TOPICS PROHIBITED BY GOOGLE.
Google has clearly outlined the topics that are prohibited. These are:
Violence, racial intolerance, or advocacy against any individual, group, or organization
Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia
Pornography, mature or adult content
Gambling or casino related content
· Any other content that promotes illegal activities or infringes the legal rights of others
· Pop-up, pop-up, or exit windows that interfere with site navigation, obscure Google ads, change user preferences, or are for downloads. Other types of pop-ups, drop-ins, or exit windows may be allowed, as long as they do not exceed a combined total of 5 per user session.
Excessive, repetitive or irrelevant keywords in the content or code of web pages
Deceptive or manipulative content or construction to improve your site’s search engine ranking, for example, your site’s PageRank
Incentives (monetary or points-based) for users to click on links or ads while visiting a site that contains ads
Sale or promotion of certain weapons, such as firearms, ammunition, balisongs (movable-handle butterfly knives), butterfly knives, and brass knuckles
Sale or promotion of beer or strong alcohol
Sale or promotion of tobacco or tobacco-related products
Sale or promotion of prescription drugs.
Sales or promotion of products that are replicas or imitations of designer products
DO NOT LABEL YOUR ADSENSE LINK
This is one of the important requirements of Google. Do not tag Google AdSense with your own text. Google will tag them when the ads appear and you should leave it as it is. You must not encourage your visitors to click on the ads by labeling them in any way. The visitor must click on the ads of their own volition.
