10 Major Reasons Why your Google Adsense Account Request will NOT be Approved

There have been many incidences where the Google Adsense Account Activation request of many publishers were rejected by Google. And as Google does not state the Exact reason why the Request wasn’t approved, it keeps the publisher wondering what he did wrong. It must be noted that Google is getting very strict these days regarding the Adsense Account approval as people are trying to Fool the Advertisers and Make easy money.

Google Adsense LogoPeople from the Asian Sub-Continent have been increasingly caught in Adsense Fraud Activities so the rules are stricter for them. Let us consider a few reasons why adsense account request of Publishers is not being approved.

2. Domain Name not even least 6 months old.
3. Website not getting enough traffic [at least a 100 visitors per day]
4. Website does not have unique content [Content is Copied from Wikipedia or from other websites indexed by Google]
5. Content is only about latest events [Like Latest Technology News and nothing else]
6. Website does not satisfy Google Adsense policies [read the Adsense policies in detail, you may find a reason there]
7. You are filing the application with a directory under the Domain name [like domain.com/xyz]
8. You are not having enough content on your website. [minimum 30 pages]
9. You are using Black Hat tricks for SEO.

Bonus tip: Use Original Information and a Google Account [Gmail Email Address] to apply for Adsense Account. And verify your site ownership in Google Webmaster Tools.

    This is really good and unique information. One must wait for 6 month if his website is new..

    I’m not sure about minimum 30 pages and 6 month reason is only a way to reject a site, the applicants usually don’t get account even they try their luck after 6 months. A applicant can get accepted easily by publishing unique and researched content. People still get approve using sub-domain(blogspot.com blog are good example), so top level domain point not trusted one. Anyway, this list at least give new publisher a good to-do list before they apply for an Adsense account.

    @Arafat: Remember that it is easier to get accepted in the first attempt of request. If you fail to do that then these conditions come into picture..So better be ready for the worst.And of course exceptions are always there.

    Hey Rohit!
    The list is good for making an applicant dead-serious before actually applying for Adsense. However, I’d applied for Adsense on a 1 month old and 5 post blogspot blog, got rejected once, then added 10 more posts in 3-4 days, applied again and got selected!
    So, there is no such clear-cut rule for getting rejected or accepted. You need to have genuine content on a serious looking website. It may be one page of very useful and totally unique content too!

    @Indihow: I never said that your application will be accepted after following these steps. These are just some major reasons why each account is not approved!

    you are very true but hubpage and many other google adsense revenue sharing sites claimed that even dummies can get google adsense account by just making registeration to their sites
    i was also trying the same thing to get adsense account through revenue sharing sites but failed!!!
