This post is not necessary to read Through, but it worth reading. I just want to write about how I started Blogging and how far have gone with it.
I’m not a blogger okay? ???
Many people still take blogging as a joke, but what is blogging? Blogging is just about information and discussion published on a website which can include text, pictures, videos, animations, GIFs, etc.
At first, I know nothing about blogging until I started seeing people making money from it. A few months ago, I jumped into a group of blogging and I actually started engaging with some members of the group. At first, I was kind of feeling lazy because I feel it would be a lot of stress writing and writing, and yeah writing of articles every time to keep users engaged, but guess what? I don’t have to do that after all. I can actually post once every two weeks or like a post, once a month depending on what niche I chose, and yes it my blog, I post whenever I explore new things or I feel there is good information to share. Unlike other niches like entertainment and news, you will definitely have to post every single day, which is quite stressful.
So yeah I gave it a try, I started with blogger.com. I opened my first blog ayomidelalemi.com. with a free plan which was ayomidelalemi.blogspot.com. the website URL wasn’t really looking professional with the Blogspot in it but yeah I just started and I wasn’t really good yet at blogging anyway. and then, I explored and tried new kinds of stuff, changed the look of my theme, played with some HTML codes, made some blogger friends, joined a mentoring forum, and yeah I learned some new stuff. but, people won’t teach you to your taste. so yeah I went to explore on Google by searching new tricks and having a deep understanding of blogging but most especially blogger trick (Blogspot).
After a few weeks, I had to go pro! many bloggers earn from their blogging site, and I wanted to do the same, I never knew I would have to really work hard to get that. I look through the web for many companies that pay their publishers really well, many companies really sucks! but I was told Google Adsense is the best. at first, I never wanted to give it a try, because I had a lot of friends getting rejected all the time and they always feel frustrated. but yeah I gave it a try!!!
So before I applied, I wanted to get a domain name to look professional and to get rid of the Blogspot together with my domain name. A domain name cost about A$20 but I had nothing in my account then, but guess what ? my aunt gave me the $20 to start blogging. So I bought my from Google and I did the necessary stuff on my website.
I registered for Google Adsense and I applied after a week of starting a blog. Hahaha, yeah I know I shouldn’t but I was so desperate to get approved. Anyways, I was rejected and the reason why I got rejected was that my site was still under construction. I never even understood what their whole policy stuff, and then, I applied again immediately because I was like neeh I’m all good with my website. Guess what, I got rejected again, hahaha. so I decided to take a break and explore what the problem was and yes I kept on applying as I was exploring and I kept on getting rejected as well.
Okay to cut the whole thing short, I was rejected 9 times before I finally got an approval. I never gave up! So what was the problem? well with the whole experience and experiments it was because my site didn’t meet the standard review like it had no quality standard when I newly started.
In conclusion to Google Adsense part,
From what I’ve seen, most of the people who get rejected aren’t rejected because they were missing something.
It’s because the website didn’t meet the standard of the reviewer. It just wasn’t seen as a top-quality site that provided value to the web.
But what exactly may be a “high-quality” site that “provides value?”
A lot of the points during this article are my very own opinions and not officially stated guidelines in Google’s Adsense policies.
You can disagree and that’s fine, but I feel they’re sense tips since…..
1. Google Adsense team review websites manually, not an algorithmic review.
Manual review google ads
The most important thing you’ve got to understand is that an actual Google employee goes to go to your site, click around, and skim your content.
It’s not a robot that just crawls around your site to see if you’ve got everything outlined in their requirements list.
That means… some ridiculously smart person who works for Google goes to go to your site, click around, read your articles, analyze your ASCII text file, and then….
Decide that it’s a pleasant, high-quality website that gives value to readers.
Following the rules is simply a part of the equation.
To pass the manual review process, your site has got to be top quality.
So how does one confirm you’ve got a top-quality site?
2. confirm you’ve got enough pages
There are tons of reasons a site can get rejected. But once you do everything right, and still aren’t accepted… this is often usually the rationale.
From my conversations with others, some people are rejected with 50+ pages, and a few people are accepted with 10.
These things aren’t set in stone here.
It’s more about the general quality of the location than it’s about the number of pages.
Really… all it takes is simply some sense.
Don’t just order 5-10 articles at $10 each then submit for approval.
Even with 100 pages… those sorts of articles seem to be the foremost common thing amongst sites that were rejected from what I’ve seen.
………..Low-quality, generic 500-word articles filled with fluff.
They don’t add value to the web.
If it were me, I wouldn’t apply until I had a minimum of 5 really in-depth, well-researched posts above 2000 words.
These 5 good posts with about 10-20 unique 600 to like 1000 words of articles should be good enough to please any manual AdSense team site reviewer.
A lot of individuals buy articles for his or her site, and there’s nothing wrong thereupon.
But if you’re getting to apply for Adsense with a site that’s filled with articles that you simply purchased, confirm you paid an honest amount of cash.
If your site is filled with $5-$10 articles, don’t bother applying.
It won’t get accepted.
Spend a minimum of $30-$50 per article.
It may sound sort of a lot of cash, but it’s the worth of a top-quality article.
3. Make your site about one topic
If you’re submitting a site with but 100 pages, stick with one topic, and supply a value for one specific audience.
A lot of rejected sites I’ve seen are “magazine” type sites that mention anything and everything.
5 good posts about childcare, 5 good posts about sports, 5 unique posts about design, and 5 unique posts about SEO should be fine, and adding more is preferable.
Unless you’ve got 100’s of pages on your site, don’t do this.
Make your topic narrow. Make it about one thing only.
4. Build traffic BEFORE applying
I want it now
Traffic isn’t an element that determines whether your site is accepted or not.
But why apply before you’ve got any traffic? you would like traffic to form money.
This is probably one of the most important mistakes that I see: Applying too early.
Honestly, though…. I actually don’t understand this from a logical point of view because everyone seems to try to to it.
What’s the rush? You’re not getting much traffic now. Why not wait until you are doing before applying, and grow out the location within the meantime?
-Build out the location first.
-Put out some great content.
-Build some backlinks.
-Rank for something.
-Get some engagement on your site from readers.
There’s no need to rush.
If it were me, I wouldn’t apply until I grew the website to a minimum of 50-100 visitors per day.
5. Wait a minimum of a month
I would prefer you to wait until your site is a minimum of 3 months old before you apply, but it really shouldn’t be but a month old.
You can try it sooner, but it takes time to create and grow some traffic, too right?
Remember, a person’s reviewing your site.
Quality content is one thing, but if you’ve got a site on a website that was registered last week, with 20 posts slapped onto it, all published on an equivalent day……
I think it’s a reasonably obvious sign that you simply just threw something up to urge your account approved.
6. stick with a publishing schedule (at least within the beginning)
Show the reviewer that your site may be a REAL site that’s here to remain.
A domain registered a couple of days ago with 20 posts bulk published on an equivalent day, then none then doesn’t show that you simply have a true site that’s being grown into a top-quality site.
Show that it’s being grown out consistently.
Stick to a uniform publishing schedule.
Doesn’t need to be every day, but if you’ll show that a replacement post is being added on every X number of days, it shows that the location is providing more and more value to readers as time goes on.
7. Get a premium theme and a custom logo
Getting a premium theme isn’t absolutely necessary, but I like to recommend it for two reasons:
1. Some free themes have spammy links or malicious code written in them.
I’ve tried a couple of free themes where I might see a bunch of links coded into the footer. Usually, this kind of theme has links to the theme creator’s own niche sites.
You don’t want anything like that exposure within the review process without you even knowing it.
2. Most free themes don’t have a pleasant design
It’s tough to seek out an excellent looking WordPress theme you’ll download for free of charge.
It’s easier to seek out a topic with a design you wish and install that instead.
A shiny, bespoke site isn’t necessary to urge Adsense approval. But once again… it’s a manual review from a person’s being and it helps you get an honest first impression.
Even I find myself discrediting tons of web sites as soon as I land on them if they don’t have an honest, clean design.
Making a custom-made logo for your website is not that necessary either.
But again, it helps.
Logos don’t cost that much money lately anyways. you’ll get one for $5+ at Fiverr or simply make one yourself using Photoshop or Pixlr.
Pixlr may be a free online browser that’s pretty robust and is additionally what I wont to design the RankXL logo.
8. Ditch categories
If you don’t have more than 25 posts in every single category, remove categories in your navigation.
I encounter tons of web sites that were rejected from Adsense, and this is often a standard feature that everybody has on their site.
Having categories are a nasty user experience if every category you click only features a few pages in them.
I’m assuming people do that to form their site look more vibrant and “full” but it actually has the other effect.
9. Link bent other helpful sites
Don’t be a dead endways the web. Link bent helpful resources and sites.
Don’t just blindly link to some random Wikipedia pages.
Link to places that actually has some helpful resources that can support what you state in your articles.
10. Remove any ads from other ad networks
Google gives you a maximum of three ad spots for a reason.
Any more than that… and it always makes your site really spammy-looking.
Your site is there to supply value first and make money second.
Your website essentially makes good money by giving value to readers.
Plastering your page with ads from several networks makes for a nasty user experience.
Even if you opt you would like to combine in other ad networks within the future, remove them once you submit your site for approval.
11. Build backlinks, but don’t buy backlink packages
Having some nice quality links pointed at your site from established sites may be a good thing to possess before you submit your site.
This should be sensitive, but don’t order any link packages to your site, and don’t submit sites where you’ve got spammy links built on them.
Yes, SEO and Adsense aren’t associated with one another, but no manual reviewer who sees 20,000 comment links built last week goes to require your site seriously.
Just imagine what percentage spammy sites the Adsense reviewer has got to undergo during a day.
Remember that for each site that gets rejected, an individual had to take a seat there and undergo it.
it has always been said that about 3 out of 1000 websites are accepted.
That means… these reviewers are browsing about 997 sites before finding one that meets their standards.
Following the policies and guidelines of what Google wants is vital.
But it’s also important to review your site for quality within the shoes of the Adsense reviewer.
If you’ll do this, you ought to be ready to get your Adsense account approved with no problems.
