Google AdSense is one of the simplest and quickest ways to monetize your website when you become a blogger.
This article will know how to apply for Google AdSense and get Google AdSense approval fast.
What is Google AdSense?
With 2 million users, Google AdSense is a program that pays website publishers by placing ads that best fit the content and audience on their sites.
So if you have a functional website or think about building a website from scratch, you are in great luck.
Why Google AdSense
You only need to place a piece of AdSense code on your site after approval, then AdSense will take care of the rest.
No Minimum Traffic
Unlike other ads programs, there is no minimum traffic requirement which means you can apply for Google AdSense with a newly-built website.
Start Earning After Approval
If you are doing affiliate marketing or other ways to monetize your site, seeing the results might take a while. But you can start to make some small earnings as soon as you get approved by Google AdSense.
It is good for a newly created website to start earning even it is minimal
Quality And Relevant Ads
Google AdSense will automatically pick the high-quality and most relevant ads for your content and audience to maximize your ads income.
One For All
You only need one AdSense account for all sites. So it is easy to add more sites after approval, but you need to make sure other sites also comply with the AdSense policies.
You can choose to automatically let Google show ads in the best spots on your site, customize the size and place of the ads that suit your site, or block certain ads that don’t fit.
You are also allowed to exclude some pages or specific sections on all pages if you have auto ads turned on.
For example, if you don’t want ads to show on your About page or Contact page. You can simply exclude them.
An Effective Ticket To The Ads World
If you start with Google AdSense, you can later apply for other alternative ad management services such as Ezoic (10,000 sessions per month) or Mediavine, which requires stats from Google AdSense and 50,000 sessions a month (somewhere around 60,000 pageviews).
AdSense Approval Tricks
Getting AdSense approval fast for a new website is tricky, so I have made this list to help you.

💡 Note: Your site should be fully functional and globally accessible.
- Check your website on different devices to see if there are any error pages. If so, fix them right away.
- Make sure it is easy to navigate, such as adding headers, footers, categories on your site. So Google can quickly get the idea of what your site is about. You don’t need fancy design at this very moment.
- Don’t have duplicate pages on your site.
Add Essential Pages

You need to create original content that attracts genuine interest and brings value to your target audience.
With great content, you can grow more traffic; more traffic means more ad exposure and possibly more clicks and conversion rates.

Make sure you publish at least 20 quality posts with 1000-2000+ words each post on your site before applying.
You need enough numbers to show Google AdSense that you are serious about creating valuable content.

After the signup, you will receive an email for further instructions for your AdSense account.

How to Make Money with Google AdSense
AdSense earnings could be affected by many factors such as your niche, geographical location, user device, advertiser demand, and more.
For example, an estimated annual revenue in the finance field, targeting North America, could be $19,278 with Google AdSense. Note that the figure is only for reference use.
Follow the Rules
First, make sure you comply with AdSense policies after approval. Policies may update, so keep yourself posted.
Write SEO-Friendly Articles
Keep producing original and SEO-friendly content regularly to drive more traffic to your site.
The more quality traffic, the more earnings you receive.
Place Your Ads in the Most Visible and Visited Areas
If you have just started, you can turn on auto ads so that AdSense will do the job for you.
In the meantime, you can analyze your AdSense stats and make changes accordingly to maximize the revenue.
For example, you can see which ads receive the most clicks and conversion rate on which pages and areas, then make adjustments based on the data that matter.
Check the Ads on Mobile Devices
Many net users will probably use their mobile phones to access your site for the first time. You can check the use of devices on Google Analytics.
In order to create the best user experience for mobile users, check what, how, and where ads are placed on the mobile screen so you can adjust them for the best results.
Test the Reaction
The only way to find out the conversion rate is to test your audience’s reactions to the ads.
After experimenting for a while, you should expect to see some crucial data to make informed decisions.
For example, you might want to insert ads manually instead of putting auto ads on your site to drive more sales. Or, if you think square ads work better than rectangular ones, then replace them.
Don’t Click Your Own Ads
Don’t click on the ads on your site by yourself. Google knows everything.
How to Receive Payment
Once your balance hits $10, AdSense will send you a mail with a PIN code to your physical address, and then you can use the PIN to verify your address.
When your funds meet the minimum $100 payment threshold, you can withdraw with your preferred payment method.
Don’t forget to submit your tax documentation in order to withdraw.
