Hi everyone,

So I'm very new to the whole blogging/ website creation.

I signed up for a Google AdSense account and this is what's come up:

Thank you for your continued interest in AdSense. Unfortunately, we were unable to approve your initial application. To resubmit your application, complete the fields below.

For your application to be successful, make sure you've resolved the issues described in the disapproval email we sent you:

  • If your application was disapproved because it matches a currently approved AdSense account, then you must close your other account before you reapply.
  • If your application was disapproved because your site doesn't follow the AdSense program policies, then you must fix the issues with your site before you reapply.

For more information, visit the AdSense Help Center.

I don't understand why, as I haven't applied for it before? What do I do in this case?

Thank you in advance,

Crystal :)

If your site is brand new then you might need to add more content to it. Have you got a contact page, about page and a privacy policy page + some content on there?

AdSense needs to see that the site is active and maintained to be approved.

I would not be concerned too much. You need to have tons of traffic to earn something with it. Build your site and try later again. They will approve you when/if you have some traffic in your site.

Yeah, AdSense typically is tough to get into. To be honest, it isn't worth the effort on a new site anyway. You need to have pretty high traffic for the income to be worth it.

That's one of the key reasons that WA focuses on affiliate marketing, as there is more income potential early on.

Dear Crystal, that's normal and isn't strange at all.
there're several reasons that your application may be rejected by Google and since you're new that's probably because your site is new and does not include enough content to be eligible in Google Adsense eyes. Google checks if you've enough content (sometimes traffic) on your site to run Google ads.

I recommend you continue to build your site and add content as much as possible. After 2 weeks (1 month is the best in my opinion ), Reapply again and probably you'll be accepted.

Feel free to contact me if I can help you with anything else )

Best,
Ali

Hi Milar, that can't be the reason and there is no difference between blog and website in Google eyes when you're applying for adsense. The main reason is that, guys who started this business are excited to see some result fast and adsense is the easiest way to do that so they apply at the beginning when their site created recently with no enough content/traffic and it's something that Google does not like.
Of course you can reapply and if you've worked on your blog after the first rejection and filled it up with many content regularly, you'll be probably accept this time.
I personally applied for adsense after 2,3 months when I've run my site and there were enough content and there was no issue with accepting. (although I don't have any plan to use it soon now! :D )

Best,
Ali

The ones enumerated may not be the reasons why your account was disapproved. They are just follow up reminders, as I can see with them. You must figure out what is really the reason why your application was rejected.

By the way, I am also an AdSense publisher.
