It is safe to make the assumption that this could be treated like a formal examination with the Google specialist being the professor who checks your answer script.
Bad handwriting and other deal breakers will annoy them, and guarantee that you never get your application approved.
Most people since focusing on the deeper and much more complicated aspects of their websites, sometimes forget the most core essentials and make basic mistakes that may get their websites rejected.
What needs to be understood, is that Google takes Adsense applications very seriously. They do not leave the judgment of the website to mere bots, regardless of how advanced their bots may be.
A few days later after submitting your Adsense application, a real human from Google who specializes only in Adsense applicability will drop by your website to review it.
They will check if the Adsense policies as well as the Google Webmaster Guidelines are being followed.
1.1 How the website looks, and how pleasing it is to the eye
The first impression IS the last impression when it comes to Adsense applications. Visual appeal is essential to please the specialist who is, after all, working for Google.
They need the website looking as pretty as possible and by pretty they do not mean Ultra HD images or fancy CSS styling, they simply want a website with the least amount of clutter possible.
This is an increasing concern in recent websites as they are more about making money with click-bait crowding or by being cluttered with advertisements everywhere.
The site should be presentable, and to the point. Think of it this way, would you visit your site daily? Would you not get annoyed if you were there for several minutes?
Answer yes to these questions, and you will have a cleaner, much simpler website that will never annoy the Google specialist. Trust me, the are ready to approve your google adsense application if you don’t have a cluttered website like the one above!
1.2 Necessary Pages needed to boost your chances of getting the Google Adsense Approval Easily
- Terms of Service: One of the safest ways to design this page is use one of the TOS generators from the millions available online. These should explicitly mention the regulations and rules of your website.
- Antispam Policy: This is just an extra step to ensure the Google specialist, and the people that you are not affiliated with any kind of spam services.
- Contact Page: This is important to have as people would want to contact you regardless of you being Adsense approved or not.
- Copyright Notice: This is a small piece of information to inform the people visiting your website who owns or has the rights to the contents of your website.
- About Page: A short summary explaining what your website does and why it could be better.
Even for websites that you do not intend to get Google Adsense Approval, these are essential tools that should be part of every good, well functioning website.
1.3 Material that is a strict NO and should be avoided regardless of how important it may be
There’s a lot of things that Google will simply not accept, regardless of how pretty you make it look. A strict zero tolerance policy is maintained for these websites, and the Adsense application is rejected quicker than you can ask why it happened. Most of it is common sense, but just for the sake of giving a few examples, here are a few big No No’s:-
* Bot generated traffic, more problematic if the traffic is being driven to click ads
* Explicit/Obscene content i.e. XXX, Adult, P0rn, Nud3 etc
* Websites in languages other than the ones mentioned here – https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9727
* Websites that sell fake goods
* Websites in clear violation of the Google Webmaster Guidelines
* Pages that are not completely finished
* Tedious site navigation
* Illegal stuff like child pornography or stolen items
* Copyrighted material
* In specific countries, websites under 6 months old are strictly not allowed (https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9724?hl=en)
* Websites that offer a very poor User interface and experience such as annoying endless popups/popunders, malware, prompts for download
* As the saying goes, content is king. It is not clearly specified how much content is deemed thin, but it’s safer to have a decent amount of content on your website to prevent rejection.

- Questions that have been asked too frequently (FAQ)
These are some of the most common questions that have been asked too many times even though the Google support for Adsense sufficiently answers those questions.
However, the list is quite exhaustive and needs a bit of reading, so the grunt work has been done for you and the questions and answers are as follows:
- Why are my Adsense Ads not appearing even after my application has been accepted?
There is a dedicated and really informative answer that Google has provided for this problem. Along with the list of common reasons that cause the ads to not appear, they have added a troubleshooter to help the troubled further – https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1208336?hl=en
- What is the exact amount of web pages that I need to get accepted for Google Adsense? How many posts do I need per page to qualify?
Unfortunately, there exists no record of the number of posts that you would need to qualify your website as ‘Not thin’. The best case of action in such cases is to focus more on quality of the content instead of sheer number.
If the quality of an average number of pages is high, you will get approved. A decent number of pages to have would be from 40-60, but the content should be relevant and of high quality to make the number matter.
- Can a Subdomain be approved? If so, what is the method to get it approved?
The answer to this question has been given word for word by Google Adsense support – https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2781228?hl=en
- How many visitors do I need to get approved?
There is no explicit mention of a certain amount of traffic that you should receive on your website. It’s safe to say that it does not depend on the visitors that heavily, as long as you do have some of course.
