Sick of Google Double Standards

3 replies
If you search for Google Adsense alternatives you will find exactly the same article on dozens of websites which is obviously totally okay for Google. You can also run one of 500 clones of exactly same 'news' website with 30+ ads where the only difference is a slightly different header of the same theme, but if I want to write about interesting facts about animals, people, nature, places, etc (original texts - plagiarism checked), with bounce rate only around 18%, that's not good enough.

I asked why is google rejecting me on their support forum and I was told that I can't write about interesting facts because nobody can't create facts, so I had to take those facts from somewhere...

I probably can't share the URL here, but I was told by several people they like the concept, website design, etc, but I will probably have to kill it because what's the point if I am not able to monetize it.

Any suggestions on what to do? Any decent Google Alternatives?

Thanks.

    First, congratulations on an 18% bounce rate. That's very, very impressive.
    Second, are you sure you can trust the opinion of the person/people who offered it in the support forum?
    Third, you mention "animals, people, nature, places" - is that the niche of your site?

    There may be alternative monetization methods, depending on the niche.

    I think you might misunderstand.


    You can write about interesting facts.



    The internet is full of articles about interesting facts.


    Bounce rate of 18% is not good for Adsense. You don't want them to stick around, you want them to click on the first link they see (which will be adsense, of course), so you can make money.


    Google does not object to duplicate content. It objects to thin content.


    Without reading any of your articles, I cannot tell you what is getting Google to not approve you.


    But I can tell you, it's got nothing to do with original content or interesting facts.


    I can also tell you Adesnes is not a great way to monetize a site.


    Look into other options... You'd have to know who your visitors are, but I am sure you can find some item they'd be willing to buy through your site.

    I do not believe a word you said because I have never heard someone say so much and never said nothing.
