7 Setup You Should Consider Before Applying For Google Adsense


Having your Google AdSense request rejected can be really annoying most of the time. But what most people fail to understand is that their request was rejected due to the fact that the proposed blog failed to match AdSense requirements for them to publish ads and not otherwise.
If you're in this category, don't feel bad because almost 90% of the successful bloggers you see around you were once in this same state just like you.
I believe the big question is what should be done to get AdSense approval, but before that, let's look into the criteria that should be put in place before requesting AdSense approval. 
1. Blog
It sounds funny, right? Yes, but it is the first thing needed because you can't place AdSense ads on an application of social media, but instead you can do that on a blog or website. If you're confused about how to set one up for yourself, hurry down to YouTube to get yourself educated on that. 
Visual learning will be more effective and less difficult to understand. That's why you head down to YouTube rather than reading other blog posts on the web.
2. Content 
A blog without content isn't a blog, and without content, there won't be any place for you to input your ad code, except for your home page, and there won't be anything to keep your visitors' company when they stop by, which is another reason you need content. 
Remember, we're talking about Google AdSense approval. When Google crawls your site for AdSense approval, one of the major factors it considers is content.
Note that for AdSense approval, Google expects you to write quality content, not just low-value content with a thousand words. Yes, lengthy posts are nice, but when they have no value for your readers, Google will turn down your requests.
Before I forget, Google also turns down your request for insufficient content. To be on the safe side, ensure you have a total of 30 quality blog posts before applying for AdSense. A good number of bloggers have testified to getting their request approved with less than 30 pieces of content. Well, kudos to them, but to save yourself time, 30 would be preferred. 
3. Theme

There are hundreds of themes which can be gotten in their free versions, but not all of them are AdSense or SEO-friendly. Always watch out for these factors when selecting a website, and once you've gotten one, ensure it has a contact page and that one can easily navigate on it.
4. Language 

Not all languages are supported by Google, but it is always advisable to write your content in English. If you find that hard to comprehend, don't feel bad because there's always a way out. 
First, you can write your content in your desired language and then head down to Google Translator or any other translator to get your content translated to English. 
What If My Targeted Audience Is From a Non-English-Speaking Country?
Hmmm, there's no big deal about that, but if you choose to write in your desired language, first check if it is in the list of accepted languages in Google terms and also enable an English translator on your blog. 
5. Pages

There are certain pages that are expected of you to include in your blog/site, which are About Us, Disclaimer, Privacy Policy, and Contact Us Page. Ensure these pages are active and place them where they can be easily found without stress. The most preferred place is at the bottom. You can include them in your footer widget, at the top of your page below your logo, or they should be included in your drop-down menu. 
6. Icons

If this is the reason behind your rejection, then you must have been in pain because it is the least reason anyone would suspect and only heaven knows what you must have altered just to get approved before you found out. 
Always ensure that all icons are functioning well, especially your social media sharing icons. Ensure they all redirect visitors to the expected pages where they should be.
7. Images
Stock images are a red flag for Google's approval. Always be on the lookout for quality images and images without watermarks. 

Having done all this as instructed, you're good to go for AdSense with the expectation of being approved. Note that Google changes their terms often, and if you find this content outdated, check for an updated post on Google AdSense approval using the search box above.
