First I will tell you how you can get AdSense approval, before start writing anything on your blog read the AdSense guidelines carefully.

Guidelines for AdSense Approval

Google-Adsense- approval trick in 2013

Create Great and Unique Content         

Google always appreciate Good work of publishers, and when they start reviewing your website they search for the quality first, your blog should have quality content, when you write quality content then your readers will love your blog and if your readers are happy it means you are satisfying a Google condition for a Blog and website.

Quality never refers to the uniqueness, maybe your content is quality content but not unique, there are many blogs who publish the same kind of content, so uniqueness is very important for a make sure you are writing some quality unique articles on your blog to maximize your approval chances.

Build some Links           

Link building plays important role in AdSense approval, if your site has backlinks from some higher authority sites then it means Google can trust your website for the quality and other factors, it will improve your chances to get approval.

There are many ways to build backlinks for your blog, for example you can write guest posts on other blogs, you can comment and build relations with other bloggers, also you can use adword to advertise your blog and website.

Link Your Blog to Analytics and Webmasters

Every blog must be linked to analytics and webmasters, you are going to apply Google AdSense and these both are Google services, so they can get better and accurate information about your blog and websites.

Neat Design and Navigation

Google always works only for their users, and they don’t want their users to visit those sites which don’t have a good design and improper navigation, so if your site doesn’t have a good design and navigation then you may get penalties from Google and your adSense will also not approve.

Remove all other Ads Before Applying

If you are using other advertising networks then remove them before applying for an AdSense account , because Google don’t want you to use other advertising network and more advertisements means less user experience, and Google always focuses on rich user experience, and some advertising networks are compatible with AdSense not so avoiding any kind of ads before submitting your application.

Use Images with Credits

Google strictly follows their guidelines for content, so avoid using images which you search for web for your blog post, if you have little knowledge of photoshop then you can create your own images and Google will love them, but in case you are not able to create or design an image then give the proper credits to the author or designer of that image, this is a Good blogging practice so you should apply it always.

Increase Traffic from Search Engines

Search engine traffic means your blog is a quality blog, because search engines spend millions to improve their user experience, and if you get the traffic you are getting good traffic from search engines then your chances of approval is high, and another reason is Google is a contextual ad network so Google shows those ads or ads of those products which user were searching.

Say No to illegal Content

Illegal content means, if you are dealing with the content for adult audience or you are sharing hacking and gambling related articles on your blog then Google will not approve your application for Google AdSense, so always follow their guidelines for content.

All these points are already mentioned in Google AdSense polices but most of bloggers never read them and some of them never understand their policies.

Create All Important Pages

Most of the bloggers never create pages on their blog, you should create these pages before applying for AdSense.

These pages are important for a blog and you should create them first and then apply for AdSense, if everything goes right you will get your AdSense approval.

  11. Ganesh Narayan says:

    Hello Nishant!!! First of all, thanks for this useful post…but I have a doubt regarding it…I am also a blogger and want to get approved in adsense, that’s why I am here. I am using link shortening services like adf.ly etc. on my blog. So, is there any problem in getting approved by google adsense due to this service as it also pays money for the links.

    • Nishant Srivastava says:

      Hi Ganesh,
      As per my suggestion you should remove all monetization from your website, and also I will suggest you to remove adf.ly ads from your website, that makes a website look cheap, but if you are getting earnings from that than you can use it, but for applying adsesne remove all monetizing options.

  12. Hi Nishant

    Thanks for sharing these useful tips.

    I will keep these in mind before applying for the adsense.

  13. Hi Nishant,

    That’s right not ever body reads full guideline’s and that’s the 1st reason Google punish’em, even i have tried 3 times, at first i got a message of copyright issue (i fixed the image’s copyright issue), secondly my details mis-matched with my own blog author who works at another blog too, third-it say i’m not following guideline’s.

    P.S- I have already read guideline’s very carefully and cont. working on every part of site quality/content work and SEO, i don’t know where & what i’m missing.

    Current Status: Now i’m working on Alexa rank and which i think is good enough, backlinks on alexa is very low even i have commented properly and nicely on high PR and do-follow blogs, traffic is also good and comes mostly from Google around 43%.

    My blog is 3 months old, so is this a real issue ? i don’t think so because i have seen such blogs with moderate traffic got adsense, so please throw some light here and help me and other visitors too.

  14. Prashant Sharma says:

  15. Hey Nishant,

    BTW, I don’t find Guidelines too difficult! :P but yea.. may be approve of adsense seems difficult just because Google receive so many proposals in a day and it’s too difficult to find who r really a genuine blogger and who r just copying the content!
    Well, as my Carrier is just started I will surly try to follow all these guidelines! :)
