When you are building a website and want to make money from it, one of the first questions you are likely to ask is “How much money can you make with Google AdSense?” It is a fair question because honestly, that number can change based on a lot of factors.
But what’s really sweet about Google Adsense is that thousands of publishers around the world use the platform to make 5- to 6-digit monthly income and you can do just that! For starters, the Google Network administers, sorts, and maintains the text, video, or interactive advertisements served to your site. Every time someone clicks those ads, you get a cut from Google. The whole concept is very straightforward!
One thing that endlessly frustrates newcomers to the AdSense program is the long wait time for approval. When you submit your site for review, Google claims it can take up to a week to get your site reviewed. In actuality, it can take a month or more, and there’s nothing you can do to speed it up. Or is there?
To be clear, once your application is submitted, it’s too late to change things. However, you can lay some solid groundwork to make your site look better and speed up approval times.
Verification with Google services is generally a positive trust factor and can streamline your approval. This is two-fold; on one hand you have verification with webmaster tools, and on the other you have implementing Google analytics. By doing those two things, you get a lot of additional trust and potential value, and Google is more likely to approve your app.
Other basic SEO factors are considered here as well. Using robots.txt properly is important. Using an XML sitemap is always a good idea, organically and for ads. Proper use of meta data is always welcome.
Finally, of course, having a decent amount of traffic is a best. Google has been known to approve sites that only get a small handful of views per day, but sites with more traffic get faster approval because of the potential earnings for Google they represent.
