It is quite frustrating to blog without Adsense especially when it happens to be the major source of revenue. I got 2 Adsense account approved on two of my websites in less than 3 days without getting rejected even once.
Irrespective of the myth surrounding Adsense, it is very easy to apply and get approved .
Here are 10 ways to get your Adsense approved in less than 3 days.
Write original articles free of plagiarism.
One of the major reason why most Adsense application are rejected is because of copied content. Google has a means of detecting plagiarism that it typically takes less than 7 hours to respond to such application.
It’s important for sites displaying Google ads to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
Don’t place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
Here is what to do;
Write a few quality articles with 500+ words. Google is definitely not interested in how many post you have on your website. It is easier to get Adsense approved with four 500+ word article than it is with 100 articles with less than 300 words.
Write on related topics;
It is easier to get approved for Adsense when you write on similar topics than random unrelated topic. That is the more reason why news bloggers find it difficult with Adsense approval.
It is important to define your blog niche and stick to that niche at least for the period before your Adsense account get approved.
Navigation and menu
A part of the email sent by Adsense on rejecting an application reads
..Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking.
Google encourages webmasters to provide clear navigation on their website in order to aid user experience.
To do this, simply add a menu at the top bar of your website which contains links, categories, labels, tags etc
These are 2 important pages you need to put up before applying for Adsense;
The About /contact us page which allows your blog readers to know about you and how they can contact you.
Page Builders could be the issue
You will be very much familiar with page builders if you are using WordPress.
Page builders like SiteOrigin and Elementor could be the reason why your site is not being approved by Adsense. These plugins have the tendency to make your website look like chat sites which violates Google Adsense Policy.
Here is a noreply email from Adsense.
Your site is a chat site which is not compliant with our policy.
Publishers are encouraged to experiment with a variety of ad placements and ad formats. However, as stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers may not place ad code, search boxes or search results in chat programs. This includes, but is not limited to, instant messaging (IMs), chat sites and other pages that contains dynamic content.
How do I know this?
I recently applied for Adsense and got disapproved even with unique content and clear navigation.
I suspected it could be because of the Page builder after going through the noreply email.
It took less than 7 hours to get approved after I removed the Elementor Page builder and reapplied.
Mobile Friendliness/ website loading speed;
Websites/blogs that harm user mobile experience may never get approved by Adsense. This has to do with the arrangement, structure and website behavior which can slow down the site and affect user experience.

Avoid placing Ads from competitors on your website at the time of applying for Adsense; Though unconfirmed, it is stated that using other third party ads can lead to Adsense being disaproved.
Google Search Console
Inasmuch that Google search console is not a major reason why accounts are not being approved. It is important to create a Search console and submit sitemap in order for Google to better understand your site arrangement.
Place Adsense code properly on header
You can use “Insert header footer” plugin for WordPress to do this.
Remove all content that encourages violation of Google product policies.
You need to remove all content that encourages violation of Google product policies.
Publishers may not provide the means to circumvent the policies of any Google products, such as by allowing users to download YouTube videos, or encourage the violation of Google AdSense policies. Moreover, publishers may not make use of Google brand features such as logos, screenshots, or other distinctive features without our express permission.
Remove contents that promotes illegal activities or infringes on legal rights of others.
It is as simple as making sure your website does not promote the sale of illegal products like marijuana or promote adult contents. Sites that promote the sale and distribution of term paper are not also allowed.
