How do I get approved for Google Adsense? Read on to find out a great way to show Google Adsense that they should approve you as a Google Adsense publisher.
What is Google Adsense?
Google Adsense is Google’s revenue earning program for publishers. If you have an account, you can display Google ads and earn revenue from them. The program is contextual so Google will display relevant ads to your topic — this could be a great way to earn money from writing!
How much can you make on Google Ads?
The amount varies. Google will not disclose how much they pay in an effort to keep the system honest. Ad payments can range from cents to dollars in payout amounts, depending on many factors such as competitiveness, action taken, etc.
How does Google pay?
Google pays via cheque or via direct deposit the month after your account reaches $100.00 (or a higher amount if you raise the payout threshold for your account)
How do you display Google ads?
In your Google Adsense dashboard, you can easily create ads based on colours, types, etc. Google then gives you html code that you paste onto your site. (Tip: display text and image-based ads for maximum impact!) Or, you can join a revenue share such as Bukisa or a blog network that displays ads for you (but in these cases, you’re most likely sharing your revenue with the site owner).
How do you get approved for Google Adsense?
Google requires that you apply to join their program. When applying, you need to demonstrate why you’d be a good fit. For this reason, you should have established online content to show them. This content should be valuable, interesting, and well-written. Here are some tips:
- Read the Google Adsense terms of service. Check out https://www.google.com/adsense/adsense-resources for helpful tips and info. Then you’ll know which topics are taboo and you’re sure that you won’t inadvertently break any rules.
- Start a website or blog. You can set up your own through your own hosting or you can set up a free Blogger blog. Don”t use a free WordPress.com blog — those blogs don’t allow contextual ads.
- Start submitting content. (Tip: Rome wasn’t built in a day! Write posts and publish over a few weeks. Be patient! A good dozen or so blog posts should be up before you apply for your Google Adsense account)
Gotten rejected from the Google Adsense program?
What should you do if you’ve gotten rejected as a publisher? Chances are that either Google didn’t have enough info to make a decision, your application broke one of their rules (content type, etc.) or your examples didn’t appear high-quality enough. Re-review the rules and attempt the process again — taking your time. You might even want to seek help from a professional web content writer.
Caution: When you do get approved, do follow all rules. Otherwise you’ll get rejected from the program and forfeit any/all earnings.
How much have I made from Adsense? I’m not allowed to say but I’ve been in the program since 2006 and while it took until 2007 to hit my first payout it has definitely been profitable for m.
