How to get Adsense Approved
If your reading this it’s probably because your interested in our 100% Revenue Sharing Program and your wondering how to get Adsense Approved. Unfortunately, we have no say in determining if Google will approve you or not. In addition, it’s become very hard to become approved without a top level domain (mysite.com) meaning your profile on GUAP (gearupandplay.com/myprofile) is not enough. You actually have to own a website. Don’t Fret and get all panicky though because were gonna break it down real easy for you. This isn’t a bad thing either as Google just wants to ensure you can produce some quality content and heck, so do we!
Step 1.) Get a Google email account and make sure it consist of your name as much as possible like email@example.com (Don’t ask why- just do it!)
Step 2.) Create a Blog at Blogger.com Why Blogger.com? Because Google Owns it and Google likes themselves right. Not to mention its FREE!
Step 3.) Buy a domain. Try to pick a domain that uses the primary keywords of your blog subject matter. It cost 10 dollars/year and you can do it right from the Blogger Dashboard. Just go to settings and then Publishing. This will change your blog address from “mysite.blogspot.com” to just “mysite.com” This tells Big G that your serious about doing some quality blogging.
Step 4.) The Six Month Probation Period. At this point Adsense does not want to hear from you. Instead you will be busy filling your blog with useful original content. Somewhere between 15-20 post should be sufficient. You have 6 months so that’s not a huge workload. For every 5 post you create on your blog create one unique article on your GUAP profile and link back to a relevant topic on your blog. (Note: In order to include a promotional link in a Article Submission the content published on GUAP must be original and not found on your blog.) In addition, choose 1 out of every 5 articles on your blog, the best ones and bookmark them on Digg, Reddit, Delicious, and any social bookmarking sites you desire. The more the merrier right!
The reason you are creating content on GUAP that links back to your blog is so you can drive some of our traffic your way. Same reasoning for bookmarking some links on social bookmarking websites. Google wants to make sure you are at least receiving some traffic before approving your website.
6 Months is UP Quick Checklist - Woohoo, time to apply for adsense!
- Website is 6 months old.
- Website does not have a “still under construction theme”.
- Website is full of useful original content (at least 15-20 posts).
- Website has a registered .com under your name
- Website has all its links in order and they work
- You have a file (usually called adsense.txt) on the root of your domain verifying site ownership with the following text “This post confirms my ownership of the site and that this site adheres to Google AdSense program policies and Terms and Conditions.” Usually Google will send you a email asking you to do this as a final step in approval.
Sign Up for Adsense
The only thing I can say here is make sure you use the same personal information you used when creating your Google email account and domain registration. This isn’t the time to get cute and just make up a bunch of crap.
UT-OH, I Got Rejected! Usually we see two main occurrences here.

YAY- I got Approved! Now What?
Simply go to your GUAP profile, Admin Dashboard and at the top right corner you will see My Adsense. Simply put in your Publishing ID to start earning 100% of the Adsense revenue from all previous and future article submissions on GUAP.
“What about my blog,” you ask? Yes, enter your Adsense there as well and continue to use both platforms if you wish. GUAP will always provide you with 100% Adsense Revenue Sharing and the advantages of a Multi-Author Blog but it never hurts to spread your content around. It’s all about networking, building bridges and spinning spider webs when trying to find a name for yourself on the internet. Don’t limit yourself to one corner of the web when you can grow in many.
