How My 5months Old Blog Got Approved By Ad Sense With Just 12 Posts. by OBALORLA(m): 6:27pm On Dec 13, 2016
Straight to the point.
I have always wanted to own a sensibly unique blog which would contribute to already existing knowledge. On this note, I’d like to advise anybody intending to own a blog to desist from it, if what they want to blog about won’t add value.
If your sole aim as a new blogger is to make money, you won’t last long at all.

Here is how I got adsense approval within the first 5 months of creating my blog at my first attempt:

1. Read very wide about blogging and all other things that surround it before applying

I actually launched my blog on the 11th day of july 2016, but I have been reading different articles on/offline about blogging since December 2015. I read about ad sense for close to a month during this period.
What this habit helped me do was that it prevented me from making common mistakes people have made during their application process and how to avoid them.

2. After reading as many articles as possible, I was able to deduce that wordpress is the best if you really mean business.

3. Since it’s a travel blog, I looked for a very simple name which has the following qualities:
- Easy to spell
- Relates to my niche
4. I immediately searched google for websites that can help someone generate a comprehensive privacy policy page, while I did the contact us and about me page myself. According to my findings these are the 3 most important pages to have on a website or blog.

5. Create a social media profile for your blog. This indicates that your blog is now a separate entity from who you are. After creating this profiles, ensure you link them to the blog.


NB: you should only create social media platforms that will be useful to your niche. i.e if you know twitter will not really boost your visibility, ditch it.

6. Download the right plugins
I mean plugins that will prevent your blog from unauthorized users, prevent spam, and help with SEO.
Do not download the plugins you don’t need or the ones you don’t know how they work. And don’t download 2 plugins serving the same purpose. E.g you don’t need google sitemap if you already have Yoast seo.


About content

7. I want to presume you already have a vast knowledge about your chosen niche. So it shouldn’t be difficult for you to write posts that have at least 300 words (according to SEO standard). In my own case though, I write the average of 1,000 words per post.
8. Write contents that are engaging and unique because this will do 2 things for you:
- Your audience will be willing to drop comments and this is one indicator that your blog is actually useful
- They’d come back for more
Nb: nobody till date knows how many posts you really need to get approved. Nobody.
9. If you must insert images in your posts, make sure you completely give credit to the original owner. Did you notice I emphasized the word completely? It is that important. Same thing applies to borrowed quotes too.
10. Ensure you optimize your blog for both desktop and mobile. When I mean optimize, I mean your blog should both be mobile and desktop friendly.
11. Your loading time too shouldn’t be more than 4 seconds. People get pissed at blogs that take forever to load.

These are the steps I followed to get me approved.

I just finished checking ur blog.
let me start by saying well done because I can imagine the kind of work u must have put in to gather that much content.
However, here are the observations I want to call your attention to:

Your grammar has to be improved: you can always give your work to a close friend who knows how to edit or you too can do it yourself by reviewing your already finished post more than 3times before finally hitting the publish button.


Next is the mobile optimization: some of the texts were cut off, so I wasn't able to read them, especially the first word of each paragraph.

Lastly try to have a more interesting style of writing. and learn how to differentiate words that sound alike. look at one of your topics:

TOP 5 CHEAP LAPTOPS FOR THE YEAR 2016 AND THERE PRICES

replace that "there" with "their"

little mistakes like this get readers turned off.

Aside that, I love the simplicity of your blog's
design.

you can check on popular tech blogs to see how they write so u can improve yourself.
peace.

Good job there bro!
If you can observe from your back end, you'd see that I checked on close to 4 posts on your blog. These were what I observed:
awesome template and design. you actually killed it.
Unique niche and contents too

However, I'd advise you
1. reduce the number of social sharing fields you have there. They tend to be stuffing your blog.
2. Try infusing more links (internally and externally) intelligently into your works to achieve the following reasons:
- help you re-ignite old posts
- they help boost the number of page clicks too.
3. for the number of contents, I discovered you have on the average 600 words per article, so I'd advise you write up to 20 unique ones and lastly.
4. try to properly acknowledge the owners of borrowed contents. e.g when you borrow a featured image, reference it like this after each post

feature image credit: www.xyz.com

It costs nothing to give credit while it is also the least you can do to say thank you to the real owner of the work.

I hope these tips help.

1. Absence of privacy policy. try checking up sites on google that help people generate this page for free.
2. i also feel the niche is somewhat restrictive. you might run out of content sooner than expected. try enlarging your coast.
3. for google to grant you adsense, i dont think they will appreciate the sexual content promotion you have on your blog. do well by reading adsense terms of service so as to know what and what adsence frowns at.
4. in a bid to make your site look busy and filled, i observed you added unrequired widgets like calender and co. please try reducing them.
the simpler the look of your site, the easier it is for people to navigate. google appreciates that a lot.
5. one of your topics is "memo of a a male sex addict"... please change the memo to "Memoir" they mean 2 different things.
6. try to also give credits to the owners of the pictured you borrow.


aside all the above listed
1. I must commend you for your choice of niche- its unique
2. your writing stile will also take you far- its captivating

That number 2, what do you suggest. what niche do you think I should add to it?

3) You meant the story I wrote? I know it contained some sexual stuff, but how can I remove it without clearing off the story?

Thanks!!

concerning number 2
you can try sourcing for different writing competitions or events that entails writing and start doing small write-ups on them.

for number 3
dont forget the thread is about getting Adsense. therefore what this implies is that you can make money without Adsense if u intend going raw. trust me, sex sells.
a good example is zubby77 blog www.globalruns.com where readers pay to read.

1.
from what I saw, a lot of hard work has gone into the creation of your blog. kudos for that.
but have you ever wondered why you haven't been approved by Adsense despite the fact that you have written close to 200 articles?
the reason is simple, you really do not have a niche. this is why it's been difficult coming up with an About us page.

what do u think makes u unique? Google need problem solvers which is why it's good to have a defined niche

2.
your home page is too long. try reducing the length. it gets boring and tiring to see something like an endless page. look at sites like nairaland and even Facebook, they have either a "show more button" or a numbered tabs to show visitors more.

I hope this helps you Onyejemechimere

it would help a lot of you can munch the regret mail sent by Adsense so we could know what really happened.

but for the time being, try to properly reference your picture sources.
Google hates plagiarism... write :
photo credit: xyz.com instead of
photo credit: xyz

try meeting someone to do a logo and/banner for you.

What of cases where one does not know the right source of the image...how to do proper referencing?
For instance, you see an image suitable for your post on Nairaland.


Also, if I say...
Credit: Cnn, Punchng...isn't that enough since they are well recognised? Must one put the '.com' and which rule/policy supports this?

Well done.

Ihave them too, if you checked via the mobile version you might need to swipe out the menu by the left to see the top menu. But all the pages menu are easily shown in the desktop version. I had to push the menu to the side on mobile to accommodate more texts and content.

hi favvvy
if you noticed, k have checked scanned many pages on you blog and from my observation, you need to quickly work on the following:

1. your about us page is close to empty. try checking popular blogs so you can fine-tune yours to taste.

2. you do not have a privacy policy. do the same as 1 above to get 1.

3. those pictures on your site, please caption them alongside proper credit. and please try to reduce the number of pictures therein. pack ur pictures to ur blog's IG and Facebook pages.

4. ur blog's URL is kinda restrictive too cos I believe you have more to offer aside Ankara.

u can hit me up for suggestions on how u can enlarge the coast- typing with my fone isn't too convenient.
