Why Google rejects your AdSense application?

adsense rejection reasons

Let’s first start with the basic question. Why does Google rejects your AdSense program?

Well, there are many reasons for getting your AdSense application rejected. Here are few primary reasons why your AdSense account gets rejected.

  • You violated Google policy rules.
  • You don’t have enough contents (average number of articles).
  • You are not getting enough traffic to your blogs or websites.

Now, let’s briefly discuss about them.

In case of violating Google policy rules

Please read carefully about the Google policies before applying for Google AdSense account. Google has few set of policies and rules that can’t be skipped at any cost. If you’ve violated any of their rules such as content plagiarization, using someone’s images, crappy web design etc, rectify them immediately and reapply for AdSense account. Here’s a detailed guide on few factors to remember before applying for Google AdSense.

In case of not having enough content

To get your Google AdSense approval, you must need good number of articles on your blogs and websites. Although there’s no fixed number on creating the articles, having around 5o to 100 quality and original articles is the REAL key to getting your AdSense account approved in the first attempt itself! Make sure each and every post you write is relevant, not stuffed with keywords and focused on users not on getting more clicks.

In case of not getting enough website traffic

As a rule of thumb, if you are getting 1000 unique visitors each and every day, your chances of getting Google AdSense approval will increase and so does your AdSense income.

To get that kind of traffic from search engines, you need to write keyword rich articles that grab the attention of search engine crawlers. Here are few proven tips to get quality traffic from search engines to your articles.

  • Before writing even one word on your next post, perform keyword research first. Choosing the right keywords is perhaps the only factor that can triple your search engine rankings.
  • Always do on-page optimization on each and every article you write. Make sure to include your primary keywords on title, sub headings, image alt tags, internal links and maintain a keyword ratio of 1 to 2% to increase organic traffic.
  • Build quality backlinks on your keywords by guest posting, blog commenting and reaching out other people to linking out to your blog posts. The more people who link to your web pages, the more traffic you will get from search engines.

Make sure to create articles around 600 to 800 words: Most beginner bloggers think that they can build a Google AdSense based blog or website just by writing 100 to 300 words articles. Although there is no thumbrule of writing articles with specific word limit, you can increase your chances of getting your AdSense account approved by writing 600 words articles. That way you will not only be able to add some value to your content but you can also include few keywords with the proper keyword density to drive more organic traffic.

Use your business email: Make sure you have a custom domain name like and create a domain name personalized email for your account immediately after launching your site. If you don’t have an email with your domain, you should probably get one immediately and use the same email to apply for Google AdSense. For instance, you can increase your chances of getting your AdSense account approved by using a domain based email like [email protected] instead of using [email protected].

Make sure your site is 6 months old: To get your Google AdSense approved, you must need a website that is owned by you at least for 6 months. This is to ensure the quality of Google AdSense ad network and protect their advertisers.

Avoid building offensive or non-family safe websites: Google has various bots that will easily figure out what your site content is all about. If they find your website content vulgar, offensive or not family safe, your Google AdSense account will not be approved. So avoid building the websites that are spammy and/or offensive.

Googel AdSense approval review waiting time: Generally Google AdSense team takes anywhere around 2 to 3 days at an average to complete your AdSense review process. So whenever your AdSense account gets rejected make sure to first take some time to reapply. In this case, I recommend you to take at least 3 to 4 weeks gap to reapply for AdSense account.

  1. Hi sir,
    I have got adsense approval but last one year I haven’t earn any money from it, please suggest me what to do.

  2. You need to make sure that your website is indexed in google and then only apply for google adsense. Its very common that Google adsense team might reject your application for couple of times.But don’t give up, reapply and that’s the keyword here.

  3. Hi…Recently my blogger site got approved for Absence…It had been only 3 months since I created the blog..Only 6 posts, an About and Contact Me page. That’s it….I am extremely happy. But then the next question that lingers in my mind is: What next ? I don’t have any Ads to put….So whats the point? Will other put ad on my blog? Or will google put ads ? I did not provide any account number while registering for ad sense (neither was I asked). So how does one get paid if he does earn some money ?

  4. Good insight. I have not applied, but this helps to know what to be taken care before I do and get rejected. Thanks.

  5. I was rejected 3rice due to insufficient content yet my blog has more than 55 posts. Never tried business email id tip. Next time I’ll apply with custom email id.
