Majority of the applications for Adsense are often rejected. The only Good thing is even if your application for Google Adsense gets rejected, you can apply again and again for it and there is no fees for same.

Suggestions You Can Consider To Get Your Google Adsense Approved 

Google does not approves each and every application they receive for Google Adsense program. They only accept quality websites with original content. 

Here below are the Top suggestions you need to consider to get your Adsense approved.

# Original content: You need original content in order to get your Adsense approved. If your Blog's content is copied from some other random site, Google will never approve your application.

Hence If you are copying your content from some other website it is better for you that you delete that content. Moreover copying content from other's website without consent can make you fall in some other random problem as well.

Moreover, Google Adsense does not approve websites having Adult and 18+ content. Even I have noticed that they even do not approve content related to Love poetry and related categories.

If you want to get your Adsense approved the best niches in which you can write is Productivity, Time management, Fitness and Health, Education and Science and Technical content.

Before applying for Adsense, make sure that you have some good amount of content at your website. Usually its better to first write some 10-15 posts with 700-800+ words before applying for Adsense.

Otherwise, there is no such guideline by Google about length of content. But majority of applications are rejected with the reason of insufficient content. Hence it is better that before you apply you post some good amount of content.

Good Theme: A good theme is must for getting Adsense approved. You need to properly customize your theme before applying for Google Adsense.

If you are using ads from any other network like or propeller ads do remove them before applying for Adsense.

If Google often rejects your application for Adsense, do change your theme and apply again. Themeforest has a lot of good Adsense optimized themes. You can get one as per your needs and budget. Have a look at all the themes here: Adsense Optimized Themes. 

Stop writing about cracked themes and apks: Google hated piracy and pirated content. If you shared nulled themes, or you share cracked apks or even if you share pirated content including movies you should stop doing it.

Else you will never get your Adsense approved.

Some Hard Truths Related To Google Adsense That You Must Know

# Google Adsense does not makes thousands of dollars for Everyone:  If your adsense account gets approved, it does not mean that you will start making thousands of dollars from the very next day.

You need a good amount of traffic to make some good money. If you are getting some 10-20 views on daily basis, you earnings are going to be very very low with Adsense. 

There is a 100$ threshold limit which you need to achieve before cashing out the amount you made with Adsense. With low traffic like 10-20 page views daily it will take you months to reach that amount.

Hence, Its better that you side by side keep looking for other monetization options available. Affiliate marketing can be really a good fit for most of the websites.

# Do not involve in activities like Self-clicking:  Some people often gets involved in activities like doing self clicking on their ads in order to make some money. Please note fooling google is not that easy.

They can easily deactivate your account anytime due to suspicious activity. If you think that you will change IP address and then you will click on your own ads to make money, then also this is really a bad idea.

# Try getting traffic from tier-1 countries like USA, UK etc. : Though getting traffic from these nations is not possible for every website owner but you should give it a try.

This is because these countries pay high CPC (the amount you get when someone clicks on your ads) as compared to Asian countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc.

Hence traffic from these countries can boost up your earnings.
