Just because your blog doesn’t break guidelines does not mean it’s guaranteed to be approved into the AdSense program. The rules are simply a guideline for fast rejection, beyond that, Google has absolute right (and often does) whether to approve or to reject site on any number of requirements whether or not to partner with them. Google’s right might be based on anything from the codebase/template of the web site being spiderable or scanable by their crawlers to majority topic coverage if such topics are overload or recognized for fraud or low quality traffic.
The best ways to guarantee your blog qualify for adsense are to focus on several aspects as follow:
- Diversify your site traffic sources such as search engine marketing, social media traffic, blog commenting, or guest blogging. This will increase your quality of site traffic.
- Create quality contents in regular basis. This kind of content will make reader engage and make it goes viral which mean more visitors will come. Google will see this sign as “interesting” and will consider your site as one of their publishers.
- Don’t overdo themes/template modification. Choose wisely on every template you are going to use to your blog. Don’t modify it often or else your request for adsense going to be rejected because Google crawler will find it difficult to scan your site.
