How To Approve Adsense on Blogger (Blogspot)
Before we get it on, I have a confession to make with the readers. Previously, I wrote another article on how to approve adsense. People who are willing to invest and want easy shots found it really helpful. A lot of people were helped by it and they don’t even have to wait 6 months. So if you are that guy who can invest in a business, go check it out. Trust, me it is really time-saving and easy to approve Adsense account with that method.
Let’s get started. Below is a table of content that will take you directly to your favorite section in the article.
Use custom domain
A domain is literally the address of your blog or website. For example, our website (the one that you are reading right now) has a name ‘Advanced Blog‘ whereas its domain is ‘advancedblog.com‘. Here, .com is the domain extension. Remember these terms ‘domain name‘ and ‘domain extension‘ because you will encounter with them a lot in your blogging career.
Our website has a short domain name that is easy to remember. If you are thinking of making money out of a sub-domain like example.blogspot.com, then forget about it. Even if you are able to approve adsense with it, you will never make actual money out of it that pay the bills because they rarely rank. You will not receive any profitable organic traffic from search engines and thus it will be a waste of energy.
In order to rank better and approve your Google application, I recommend the three main top-level domain extensions to use in your blog:
These three work better than any other in terms of search engine optimization and approval process. When you buy a domain then make sure to purchase a custom e-mail address with it like [email protected] If you want to learn deeper on this topic, you can read my article on how to choose the right domain name.
Please Note: When you buy a new domain name, make sure to check its past history. Has anyone already bought it and left working on it? If so then how did it looked in the past? Check it using the way-back machine. Is that domain spammy or safe? Make sure to check these things before buying any domain name.
Publish Important Pages
Adsense checks whether you have organized your website in a standard manner or not. For that, they search for the most important pages on your website that should not be missed. You must publish the following pages in your blog:
- About Page (Must contain full details about what you and your website do)
- Contact Page – There must be a contact form that works.
- XML sitemap page.
- HTML sitemap page (optional) – This is only for search engine optimization.
All of the pages listed above should be clearly visible and accessible in your blog. You can place them in the menu, sidebars or manually publish their link in the footer area.
Do Site Audit
Site audit means fixing technical issues and optimizing your website or blog for better performance. It also includes the way your website looks. But before doing the site audit, use a premium blogger theme to increase the chances of approval. Plus, there must be well-arranged menus. It is your choice to keep full-width template or sidebar layout, does not makes any difference.
This is a checklist for how to approve adsense on blogger. Make sure to bookmark this page right now. Site Audit for AdSense Approval includes the following things:
- Use a premium mobile friendly template
- Use custom logo and favicon
- Use SSL certificate
- Make sure that the site redirects to a preferred version (with or without ‘www‘)
- Connect your site to all social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest)
- Connect to Google Analytics
- Generate XML sitemap
- Create a custom robots.txt file
- Add XML sitemap in robots.txt file
- Submit sitemap to all search consoles ( including Google, Bing, Yahoo & Yandex)
- Optimize loading speed
- Get Indexed
Once your design is installed on blogger, you should create a Google Analytics account and insert tracking code in your website header or footer. This measures the user’s statistics on your blog in real time, like what pages are visitors watching right now, bounce rate, and other data. It is more accurate than the default blogger’s visitors statistics report. This is an important step that you should not miss.
I recommend placing the tracking code on the website’s footer because it will affect loading speed relatively less. Read this guide to learn how to add GA tracking code in blogspot.
The steps mentioned here take time to complete but they are very easy and worth it. To optimize the loading speed, scan your website address through Google Page Speed Insights & GTmetrix. These two tools recommend how you can improve the blog’s performance. To test the design, you can run Google’s Mobile Friendly test.
Get Index: Indexing means showing your website on search results. Once your website and the content is ready, and when site audit is complete, you can request Google to crawl your website and index it. If you have already connected your site to google search console, you can click on the URL-Inspection and enter your homepage address to get indexed right away.
Articles mean posts. People generally ask: how many articles do I need to create to get approved by AdSense? how many views or visitors should I have?
The fact is, numbers do not matter. It does not matter how many articles or viewers you have. You must have 15 – 20 well-written articles that comply with AdSense program policies. Your articles must be worth reading and follow the rules of AdSense.
Now, what you are going to write about makes a big difference. If you are thinking to make articles about how to make money online, SEO, Android, blogging and similar, you will have minor chances of approval. The reason is that there is a huge competition going on such topics and Google is no longer supporting it through AdSense. They are done with it and want something new and different. So think wisely and create your blog on different topics. Even it is difficult to approve Adsense on the health-related website because it’s become an old trend.
