Lots of people keep making videos about how you have to do this and target that so that maybe one day the Adsense people will take you in and that if you never get fully enrolled then guess what there are other ad programs out there so that Google ain't the best thing on earth afterall and so on and so on... STOP
I thought I'd write a little article that will save you some time and frustration, hopefully lightening your path a little. That supposes of course that you have applied at least twice to get full acceptance into the program and that currently you're in a state of almost wanting to bang your head against the wall because you can't figure out what it takes to get Adsense and that it makes you feel psychotic every time you start thinking about it.
Fine, but RolandC.net, what do I need to do to get fully accepted into the Adsense program?
The answer is both simple and short: BE TRULY USEFUL to someone (not just to yourself).
Let me clarify what I just wrote. I did not even have 18 (probably 17 or 16) articles when I applied (and got full acceptance), so don't even listen to those who recommend having at least 20-25 quality articles.
And frankly, quality is not even the point here. Google does not need quality, it needs usefulness, hear problem solving, creating solutions.
Before I elaborate on this, a little word about traffic, as not only I remember having had less than 18 posts for sure, I was also averaging the 30 visits a day or so, probably even less at that time. Felt lonely on my Blogger platform...well who cares, I did get accepted anyway
Of course, your content should reflect the fact that you've benefited from some sort of, quote on quote, education somewhere along the way, and your website/blog's visual identity should convey your own personal spirit or your product/services's spirit or whatever, but that's not to the point, the point being that your content should solve problems, bring solutions (and not just to you but to people that are actually real and that actually need your content, so that the reader went 'Oh, gee! thanks so much for your article, it really saved my day!' or 'Gosh, I didn't know that! I'm so happy I found your blog!' or even 'Wow, this is so interesting, I gotta try that on my own too!'.
Bang! there you have it, if you can help people, if you can really be useful to anyone on this planet, then you will attract people (potential customers) and then advertisers want to know about you - here's your Adsense ID coming up right now! (well actually they first give you a link to download the Adsense app :))
Anyway, I'm not going to mention anything about the 'you have to be passionate' thing because it's obvious or it should obvious that if you write articles about something you know enough to help the community, that means you love what you do enough to be doing it, right? So if you have started creating content just to get Adsense and then you only have to sit on it waiting for Paypal® to come thru while sipping your beverage of choice on some sand beach somewhere, then this article wasn't for you to read, sorry.
Think about it this way, as an advertiser, would you invest money in people who don't have nothing helpful to tell (hear sell)? Would you invest your hard-earned money in people who only keep sharing things they haven't even created? Would you invest in people who're only looking to get an income from advertising while not even trying to understand what advertisers need (advertisers - those are the people who will pay you money in the end) and would you invest in people that....I forgot, sorry.
Anyway I hope you've enjoyed reading this article, that it'll help you either getting quick and easy (though truthfully) Adsense at last, or find something else (better) to do with your life (you might wanna try the DMOZ directory project to get ideas if you don't have any - link opens in a new window and they have a brand new mascot there, green mascot actually).
