I was turned down for Google AdSense. Now what?
My request for Adsense membership was turned down -- rejected! -- twice. Please suggest me what should I do? Should I remove some content?
&uotThe first and most important thing you need to do is go back and read the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions and then the even more important Program Policies, which clearly states that you cannot have a site that includes:
Similarly, read the list above and you'll notice that any sites that play SEO games with keyword stuffing, excessive linking, atypical linking patterns or similar are also unlikely to be approved for the program.
I don't know your site, but most of the sites I have seen that were not approved for Google AdSense are sites produced by spammy "engines" that syndicate content from an article archive site or a collection of RSS feeds. Nothing original about any of it, and nothing ethical about it either.
While people like to think of Google people as being in the proverbial "smoke filled room" making random decisions, the fact is that as a publicly traded company (Nasdaq: GOOG), you better believe that their policies are carved in stone, that there's very little whimsy or randomness about their decisions and that they have a darn good reason to accept or reject any applicant (though that doesn't mean that they need to share it with the applicant).
What I would suggest is that you ask them why you weren't approved and perhaps they'll enlighten you about what you can do to modify your site, change your direction, update your approach and, finally, join the club.
