Hello everyone.. I've talked about some stuff here and there and from my understanding right now one of my site's is in the process of getting reviewed by Google for approval into their Adsense program.. I've already got a youtube channel associated with the account approved but I am now waiting on my account to get even more approved or something like that now from my understanding or something like that.. where I can eventually also have live ads on my site's pages and not just on the youtube videos. I'm gonna try to share some of my experience here some more, everyone is welcome to comment some on all of this too.. I think this could be a helpful post.

- 12-07-13 - So far it's been a few days and I haven't heard a response about approval yet.

    I helped to set up an Adsense account one month ago and she was approved during three days. It seems there is some problem with your website. Did you check the spam folder of your email? Maybe you will find some message from the approval team there.

    Yeah, I just checked now.. and I haven't heard from them through email or through any other way that I know of.. do you think I should of been approved by now already? From what I've heard here n there.. I feel like I could qualify to be approved already.. I'm still uploading content and updating things though either way right now.

    All you can do now is to just play waiting game. If you've got no reply, approved or denied, from them for a month or so, you could get to their support. I doubt they would ever replied or mess with inferiors.

      I heard that if someone gets approved through a blog they can only post the code on their blog and some other stuff like that.. do you think you might know much about any of that kind of stuff?

      @AJ3: I guess lkears11 & vishwa mention to blog on blogspot. You can easy to get approval with blogspot but your Adsense account is only Hosted Account. It means that you can only place ads on YouTube and blogspot. If you want to place ads on any websites or other blogs (Wordpress or anything like that) that you have to add your sites into Adsense account and wait for approval again. Once you get adsense approval for your site, your Hosted Account will be upgraded to Normal Account. At this time, you can place ads code in any sites or blogs.

      You will receive an email notification when your account is approved or disapproved. And, this process can take awhile, not just hours or days. Until then, you can do a lot to ensure your site meets the quality requirements for Adsense by adding many more pages of highest quality content, including articles, videos and tutorials. Ensure that none of your content is copied or spun as all this bad content will cause your site to receive disapproval. This content creation activity will keep you busy and occupied until your site is approved.

        When I enter Adsense's website, It says: "Your application for hxxp://xxxxxxxx.com/ is under review. You'll only see blank ads until your account has been fully approved."

        What should I do now?

      Yes, first time Google initially passed your ad sense account. But that is not final approval. In the mean time Google allow to to set up ad sense code and review your site quality. If google adsense authority think about your site is OK to get final approval then they sent you a final confirmation mail to your email. Otherwise they rejected.

        Check your email daily. If you the Adsense unable to approve your application then they will tell you whey they reject your application. There should be a reject issue and if you have Chane to re-apply then you have to fix the problem (they Mentioned in your email) and apply again.

        Adsense take about 7 to 14 days to approve any application but some times it can be approve within 24 hours.

        However, wait and see and if there any issue then fix them and apply again.

      First step is easy, the final step comes when you start serving ads on
      your site and that's when they pull the plug on bad guys.

      According to me, send them a message... Or at least send another request. It's not normal to wait more than 1 week... They could not like your Blog/Website, but in most cases they send a message...

    Initial approval is automated and easy. If your blog is easy to be navigated (a good navigation menu and internal linking matters), receives some visitors from search engines, contains a privacy policy page and doesn't contain adult/copyrighted content, it should get approved within a few hours.. Did you receive any response from there or still waiting?

      No I haven't, I thought it might get manually reviewed.. I heard they could get manually reviewed at some point.

    Hmm, well.. so far I still haven't got approved by Google Adsense or heard any more from them.. I also noticed my ads created gone again, I think something could be going on..

    I have gotten approved by InfoLinks in the mean time and have still been upgrading the site here n there since then. I think it might help me to have the site built up some more or something like that before applying to adsense again.. I feel like that and some other things could help with all this, it's a long story.
