What is Google Adsense
Google AdSense provides a way for publishers to earn money from their online content.
Website publishers serve text, images, video, or interactive media advertisements on there websites.
These advertisements are created by various advertisers and maintained by Google. Google uses a cost per click (CPC) pay method.
Which means you are paid based on a user clicking on the ads served on your website. Each ad will pay a different amount of money to you.
When you are comparing networks Adsense does not place in the top category for pay.
Although super popular the payout is relatively low.

Contact Page-Your contact page is set up so website visitors can make contact with you regarding any related matters of your site.
About Me Page-This page is an introduction page. It tells visitors who you are, what you offer, and general information about your website.
3. Age Requirement
You must be of legal age to transact with Google. The age requirement is no younger than age 18.
If you are not 18 you can ask your parents to obtain the Adsense account for you.
4. Copyright Images
Adsense will not approve your application if they find copyright images on your site.
You can use images from a free or paid stock photo website. Do not download images from Google or copy images from another website.
Using images that are under copyright is illegal and can get you into unwanted legal issues.
5. User Experience
Users are surfing the web from more than just a desktop computer now a days. Users access your website from a tablet or even a mobile device.
You wan’t to make sure that your website is mobile responsive and delivers a great user-experience.
This will help in your approval process. This will also be a recommendation for your website load time. A slow website will deter visitor’s.
Over 50% of mobile visitors who land on your website will leave your website if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.
This is worth taking the time to learn more about so you can ensure a great user experience.

How Do I Know if Adsense Is Approved
Exactly how long does Adsense take to approve your application may vary. I have seen 24-48 hours but the final Adsense approval could take up to 2 weeks.
Once approved you will get a confirmation email saying that ‘The site “yoursitename.com” is now ready to show Adsense ads.’
At this point you can get started showing ads, and can start earning money from your Adsense approved website/blog.
Once your earnings reach $10, you will receive an address verification PIN. Login to your Adsense account and enter the PIN.
You have completed all the steps of Google Adsense approval process. Once your earning reaches $100, Google will send you or wire transfer your earnings on your bank account.
This is a basic guideline you should follow if you are hoping to be approved for Adsense.
You should have success after going through all aspects of this guide.
