Adsense Approval Made Easy – 100% Fool Proof Techniques

Once your Adsense Account Approved, according to me, Anytime is the high time to start showing Ads in your website and Get paid for Clicks.

Come, lets explore some unique details of this “Placing Ads” game.

Traditional / Manual Procedure of adding Google Adsense Ads in a Website:

Gone are those days when we placed ads in a traditional way with boring Text widgets. Nevertheless, Let me summarize that procedure for the benefit of Old School lovers.

Steps to do with your Adsense Account

  1. Login to your Adsense Account
  2. Go to “My Ads” Tab
  3. Click on “New Ad Unit” Button
  4. Configure your choices like Ad Size and Ad Type. Give it some meaningful name (for easy tracking)
  5. Save it and Copy the generated Ad Code.

Google Heat Maps for Adsense Ads

Steps to do with Your Website

  1.  Add a Text Widget as allowed by your theme.
    1. Adsense Heat Map might provide a better idea of such placements.
  2. Paste the Ad Code Copied previously and Save it.
  3. Wait for some time to see Google Ads in Your Website.

Placing Ads using Google Adsense Heat Map :

I followed the Google’s Heat Maps and decided to go ahead with the following 3 places for content ads. The Idea here is to keep the ads as close as possible to the main content that you elaborate.

Placing Ads under Category Page:

  1. Under First Post Header
  2. Middle of Sidebar (Preferably Left Side)
  3. Under the Third Post Header.

Note, It’s wise to list maximum of 3 posts in a Category Page. So that,

  • There is enough Ad density across the Page
  • Ads are not crowded. i.e, As per Google, At any time of scrolling only One Ad should be visible (I have seen many deviate this rule. Still, better to cope with).

Placing Ads under Post Page:

  1. Above the First Paragraph
  2. Middle of Sidebar
  3. Above the Last Paragraph

So that, the above discussed objectives are achieved here too.

Challenges / Issues of placing Google Ads Manually:

  • Many of the themes will not have Widget Areas of your choice.
    • As far as I know, Free themes have them only on Sidebar. So pitiful, isn’t it?
  •  You should risk editing the theme functions PHP files OR Should yourself get resorted to some 3rd party Plugin
    • In either ways, Its a pain in *** because
      • Your changes are lost with a new theme version update
        • Yes. Having a Child theme is an option, still not so handy, at-least for me.
      • No single plugin is consistent / complete in showing Ads in my experience.

Policy Violation Ban

  • If you fail in meeting any of the Google Adsense Guidelines and Policies such as ‘displaying more ads per page’ or ‘Not more than 3 content Ads per page’ .. etc.
    • That’s it. You can kiss goodbye to your Adsense Account. All gone with the wind.

So what is the best way of showing Ads? That are,

  • Google Adsense Compliant
  • Consistent in displaying Adverts
  • Trouble Free in a long run
