Google Adsense is the best ad-network providing excellent revenues to millions of ads’ publishers. Just because of its high payouts bloggers love to place adsense’s unit on their blogs. But Google Adsense doesn’t allow everyone to become a publisher and only selected bloggers, after passing the hard approval process get their Adsense account.

When I surf bloggers’ communities on social media sites, I normally find bloggers saying that “How I can get a fully approved Adsense account?”. The scammers target these bloggers and sale them fake ads accounts by saying that those accounts are fully approved. But here’s my story about approval of a real Adsense account. You can also follow my method for genuine Adsense account’s approval.

My Blog’s Content, Structure and Keywords


My blog’s content has the below listed features:

  • Totally unique with minimum 400 words per article.
  • Number of articles are more than 300.
  • Every article consists of images and proper text.
  • Proper credits are given to images and content under copyright act.
  • Not a single word is copied.

illegal Words in Content


My blog’s structure is simple and clean with easy navigation. The primary purpose of my blog is to provide best user experience to visitors. Also it has some essential pages including contact us, about us and privacy policy. My whois information is correct and matches the information available on my blog’s contact us page; it can help people to contact me easily in case of any queries.


I know it’s strange that why i am discussing about keywords included in a blog. According to me Google Adsense’s approval system is automated process to some extent and it automatically rejects applications for blogs having illegal keywords. Here is a rough idea about illegal content and keywords.

My Strategy About Approval Process

The first thing is patience, if you are impatient then it will be difficult for you to face failure. I didn’t applied for Adsense just after creation of my blog, I published more than 300 articles and after that applied for Adsense account. I provided the correct information about myself during completion process of Adsense application. Correct  information is essential in creation of Adsense account because if you aren’t doing this, you may face trouble in future.

First Review

In the first review process, Google provides you with a partially approved Adsense account and you are required to place ad units in your blog; only blank ads will be shown on your blog in this first review.

What I did in First Review?

I placed Adsense’s most loved ad units in my blog in the first review. I placed 336×280 ad units on the single posts pages (One ad unit above the fold and one below the fold), also used 160×600 banners in the sidebar; furthermore 728×90 size’s ad unit on other pages including categories and tags.

What Happened after that?

Hurray! I got the approval email from Adsense team. Below image shows the approval email. I wasn’t expecting this approval because I was rejected two times before this. Previously there were some articles with illegal keywords and some spun content, i removed all those articles and applied after 2 weeks and it got approval; that means Google Adsense also respects quality just like Google search.

Further Precautions:

Below are some essential tips to make your Adsense account live long:

  1. Avoid fake ads clicks or fake impression on your blog.
  2. Avoid copyright or illegal content on your blog.
  3. Frequently update your blog with high quality content.
  4. Add correct payment information.
  5. Don’t allow other blog’s to show your Adsense ads. To do this go to: Settings> Access and Authorization> Site management.

My Opinion:

Without hard work and patience you can’t get approved for an original Adsense account. In my opinion you should create a blog with simple navigation, unique sufficient content, excellent design and high number of visitors.
