Hi everyone,
My google adsense application has been rejected for unclear reasons as below:

1) It is important for sites that display Google ads is to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique content and relevant to the user a reason to visit your site first.

2) Do not place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little or no original content.

3) Your site should also provide a good user experience through navigation and clear organization. Users must be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they are looking for.

I don't think I violate those on my website. Could you guys help take a look and provide your expert advice?

My site: Blog- | Keep Asking-Keep Learning

Thanks alot

      Thanks for your response.

      I'm looking for someone having the same issue and have it resolved. Of course, Google will give final (and secret) decision...but I still hope...

    I recommend you to remove the email subscription widgets in the sidebar and add a user bio in the footer widget and try again. If still you are unable to get approval, it might be based on your country.

      Thank you...it's interesting. Do you have any idea why Google does not like email subscription widget? What's bad with that?

      I would scrap Adsense way before I would remove my opt-in forms. If given a choice between building a list with my blog or running Adsense ads, list building is the obvious choice. I would take 1 targeted subscriber over 10 Adsense clicks any day.

      Also, I thought the site was fine. It had interesting, unique content. None of the reasons Google gave apply to that site. I have seen hundreds of sites with duplicate content or YouTube auto blogs running Adsense for years with no issues.

      The bottom line is that the idiot who reviewed the site didn't like it for some reason, and Google can basically deny you for any reason they please.

      It's no secret that Google hates Internet Marketers. In fact, they hate anybody on the Internet that makes money without giving them a cut.

      I wouldn't even sweat being denied. There are so many better ways to monetize your site anyway. Adsense isn't the only PPC network that accepts publishers, and they don't even pay the best.

      If I was the OP I would add more opt-in forms and concentrate on building a list and also monetize with CPA, Clickbank offers, etc. I monetize a couple of my blogs using Fiverr. I set up Gigs and charge $5 to allow someone to put up a 400 word guest post, and then I upscale by charging another $5 for an 800 word post, etc. This works awesome because I actually get people to pay me to give me their content.

      There are literally dozens of ways to monetize your site without Google.

      IMO they did you a favor.

      BTW, I think the design is great and it's very easy to navigate. It's their loss, not yours. At any rate, son't let it get you down. You will find that you will face a lot of rejections in this business. I like to think that when one door closes, two more open. If you have that "refuse to lose" attitude, you will always find the positive in everything that happens to you.

        Thank you so much for your answer. It's clear and makes sense.

        Actually, I'm not terrible worried about my site rejected by Google adsense. I'm just curious to know if I'm doing something wrong and if I can make my site better.

        Thanks again man.

        Btw, where's the Thank button?

    When I first saw the home page my first thought was ugh, another thin Wordpress blog of bad posts. The look was not good, and the English in a few places is off. (Top menu item referring to "humors" (should just be humor or fun), about me page saying "why I build asktester" (should be why I built asktester), etc.

    But then when I got into into the posts ... wow, awesome, this is nice. Well done.

    Maybe use one of the best posts as the home page - at least until you are approved.

    It could be the reviewer did not understand the site and the "testing" topic. This is unfair and really frustrating, but unfortunately common with Google.

    I echo a prior comment about possible country prejudice. I'd remove the reference to Ho Chi Minh City.

    Finally, I surf with ad blocker on. If you have any ads I'd remove them while trying to get approved.

      Thanks for your awesome comment. English is not my native language, so I need to correct it. Thanks for pointing out.

      It's interesting that Google doesn't like Ho Chi Minh

      I guess one of the problem with site is that it's a Q&A site (just like forum) and Google considers it as "user-generated" content. I heard that Google (adsense) doesn't like forum like site.

      Anway, thanks again for your reponse

    Your blog has a nice theme. I also notice that your blog has been up for a year now, which should be long enough to apply for Adsense. But the problem might be the lack of content. There's not enough blog posts.

    Maybe try affiliate marketing instead.

      Thank you for checking out my site. Yeah, I have only around 20 articles published so far. The reason is that I built the site while I'm having my full-time job. I don't have time to write a lot articles.

      Thanks again
