AdSense may not be the only sources of income for web owners, but it is certainly one of the most lucrative sources of revenue to tap into. Applying for an AdSense account requires you to go through a number of steps. To help improve your application, here are a few things you can do to prepare.
Make an About Page
An About page is simply a must-have. Even when you are not applying for an AdSense account, having a proper About page set up is a necessity. An About page describes you and your blog, what the blog is all about and many other details about the site. It is the first step towards building a good relationship with your readers.
Let Users Get in Touch
You can let your readers contact you via a simple contact page and a clear contact email address. Both of these elements are required when you are applying for an AdSense account, so be sure to have them in place before you even begin your application process.
firstname.lastname@example.org is a good email address to use when you want to set up a contact email. This is an email address that Google will recognize immediately. As for the Contact Us page, you can use a plugin or a simple HTML form to allow readers to get in touch.
Name and Email Verification
Google will verify your full name and email address when you first apply for an AdSense account. Although the company will also verify your domain name, it is a good idea to display both your full name and valid email on the site for verification purposes.
A good way of doing this is by having an Author box on the home page of the site, on the footer or at the bottom of every article. Similar to the previous elements, you can always find plugins and add-ons that will help you accomplish this in just a few seconds.
Sufficient Number of Quality Posts
There is no rule to follow when it comes to the minimum number of posts you should have before applying for an AdSense account. There are old blogs that didn’t get approved even with over 500 posts on their sites. On the other hand, newer blogs with fewer than 100 posts are displaying AdSense ads already. To increase your chances of success when applying for an AdSense account, it is best to have at least 50 posts of over 500 words. Make sure the posts are themed and highly readable as well.
Based on everything that has been followed above, submitting and making sure that an AdSense application is approved is not such a hard thing to do, but it does require some work. However, by keeping all of the tips in mind, chances are that your AdSense application will be accepted without any trouble.
