We have always been curious about Google AdSense.

  • How it works.
  • How much money you can really earn with an average Site.
  • etc.

 

The information you can find on the Internet (and YouTube) doesn’t seem very reliable.

  • People brag too much or don’t show their real earnings…

 

Therefore, we decided to apply for an AdSense account and share everything we learn with you.

  • Our Results, Configuration, learned lessons, etc.

 

Few days ago, Google AdSense approved our Site application.

  • Our request was approved without any problem.

 

Since lot of people wonder what is necessary to get accepted into AdSense…

Today, we’ll share with you what our Site looked like when we applied to Google AdSense.

 

In case you don’t know, in this section we talk about How we are building this Website: our SEO strategy, Theme and Plugins we use, our Real Results (Pageviews and Users we have)…

* We have just created a new category: Google AdSense.

 

We’ll divide this Post into 3 parts:

1. How to get accepted at Google AdSense.

2. How many days does it take to get AdSense approval?

3. Our Google Analytics report for today: Users and Pageviews we have.

 

Let’s begin:

1. How to get accepted at Google AdSense.

There are lots of theories about how to be accepted at AdSense.

  • However, the truth is that nobody except Google knows what the requirements are.

 

The most common tips that you find on the Internet to be accepted by AdSense are:

  • Have a lot of high quality content (legit content).
  • Have an easy Site to explore.
  • Have an “About us”, a “Contact” and a “Privacy policy” page.
  • Have a decent amount of Pageviews (Organic, if possible).
  • Do not have empty Post sections.

 

Did we fulfill these requirements?

  • We think so.

 

When we Applied for an AdSense account we had:

 

Content

 

  • 106 Pages.
    • Average length: 1,500 to 2,000 words.
  • 98 Posts.

* Our Forums do not generate any traffic at the time of writing this.

 

All our content is legitimate and has been written by us (we have not paid anyone to write it for us).

 

Traffic

 

As you can see in the image above, when we applied for our AdSense account we had:

  • Pageviews per month: 8,261.
  • Average Session Duration: 1m 4s.
  • Bounce Rate: 86.84%.

 

But… How much of our Traffic was organic?

 

As you can appreciate in the image above, +85% of our Traffic is Organic.

How old was our Site when AdSense approved it?

 

We Started this Site on May 1, 2019 so:

  • When we applied for our AdSense account (June 24th 2020) our Site was 1 year and 2 months old.

 

 

This is what our site looked like when we applied for our AdSense account.

  • Some days later, Google sent us an e-mail: Our request had been accepted.

 

2. How many days does it take to get AdSense approval?

We submitted our application to AdSense on June 24, 2020.

  • Google sent us the acceptance e-mail 10 days later, on 4 July 2020.

Did the COVID 19 situation affect our AdSense application?

 

No.

  • At least, when did it: from June 24, 2020 to 4 July, 2020.

 

10 days seems like the average acceptance period, as we have read in different Sites.

  • Google tells you it can take up to 15 days, so…

 

3. Our Google Analytics report for today: Users and Pageviews we have.

This past week has been absolutely terrible.

  • We told you: Summer Holidays and Business-related content… bad combination.

 

Users:

As you may have already seen in the Post’s top image, these last 7 days we received 947 users.

  • 2 weeks ago, we had 1,400.

It is a 33% drop in Users.

 

Pageviews:

In the last 30 days, we’ve had 7,828 Page Views.

  • 2 weeks ago, when we applied for our AdSense account, we had 8,261.

 

We are not worried because, according to Google Trends, Business-related content experiences a 50% (approx) drop in traffic these weeks.

  • Our numbers are not that bad.

Hopefully our metrics don’t get much worse. We’ll see…
