Some Great Features of Google Adsense
Google Adsense allows you to display any number of ads in a single page or post. Previously, it Adsense allow only three ads per page or post.
But I recommend you to not ad too many ads in a single post or page to protect user experience and website speed.
Highest paying Ads Network
Google Adsense is the highest paying ads network. This is the reason it is mostly loved by all bloggers. You can earn up to $10 per 1000 Impressions.
Also, $.10 to $20 per click. But to earn that your website must be of high quality and must have decent traffic.
I have observed that Google Adsense codes are lite and do not slow down your website speed too much. I am using 7-8 ads per article and pages and articles are loading within 5 seconds which is excellent.
Unlimited Ads Units
Adsense provides an unlimited number of banners, rectangles, skyscrapers and auto ads. Its auto ads function displays ads automatically according to the size available.
Adsense Auto Ads
Adsense is now capable of inserting ads in suitable places of your website automatically without any code. You don’t need to insert manual codes.
But I don’t recommend this method. Inset codes manually. You can disable auto ads in Adsense control panel.
Select Type of Ads
Adsense allows you to select what type of ad you want to display. It may be “TEXT” or display “BANNER”. You can also set it to automatic.
Adsense is free for all. Simply sign up with your Gmail account and get free codes for your website.
New Ads Types
Adsense is now having auto ads as mentioned above. It has many formats now like, In feed ads, In article ads, Matched content ads, Anchor Ads, Vignette ads. You can enable all of them or select any of them as per your choice.
So, these are some main features of the Google Adsense program. It has many more features which you can search over the internet. Now I am going to tell you my methods which help in getting Adsense approval with just 18 articles.

1. Choosing Domain
Don’t get confused while selecting the domain name. You can choose any domain name until it is micro-niche site. If your website has different topics then you can name if anything which is related to the website topics.
But don’t make it too awkward. Like something related to health and publishing post of marketing. You can also register with your name also.
2. Choose Blogging Platform Wisely
If you are starting a blog then I strongly recommend to make WordPress your first choice. I strictly say no to another platform. You can also use blogger but it is very limited.
If you don’t care about money then stick to Bluehost. Else you can continue with GoDaddy which has a basic plan of $1/month for WordPress hosting.
WPinfy is also the best option also and using same for my this website. It is very simple and cloud-based. Prices are normal. I am not sure about others but according to Internet reviews, they are mostly preferred by people.
WordPress provide extreme level website optimization for SEO and Speed. And these are the key things you need.

3. WordPress Theme
This is the most important point you should take care of. For me, this is the step which helps me in getting Adsense approval. WordPress theme defines the overall functionality of your website.
Hence, always use light and clean theme initially. Once, your website is approved by Google Adsense then you can switch to any theme you want.
Initially, I used many heavy themes includes sliders, lots of widgets etc and rejected two times by Adsense. Then I switched to Subscribe Pro theme by Happy Themes for my website.
Again applied and got approved by Google Adsense. I didn’t make any changes to content or anything else and got approved within 12 Hrs. Now I switched to PenNews Theme.
So, start with any theme from Happy Themes and start publishing your content. Happy themes have free versions also.
You can also find a premium version online free but I won’t recommend that because pirated themes may contain unusual scripts that may harm your website. Stick to the free versions and make a proper website.
4. Content Quality
Here comes another major part of website building. If you are really serious about blogging and really want to make money through it then you should take care of the content you are publishing.
Never copy content from any other site. Write your own. Google Panda is smart. I am clearly not saying that you must write huge long posts with 3000 words or more.
If you can check my website, none of the posts are more than 1800 words. Even, some posts are below 1000 words. So, the point is, it doesn’t matter how much you write.
The thing which matters is what you write. Give priority to the user satisfaction than long unnecessary articles. Try to write on what users are looking for. Stop including dozens of useless lines.
Also, keep your articles above 800 words. Always, do keywords research before writing anything, use LSI keywords in articles. Here is a perfect article which I have written on how to write an awesome articles. Please check it and it will clear all your doubts. And always write for users, not for Search Engines.
5. SEO Optimization
Optimized all your articles, pages, and categories for SEO. I recommend using the Yoast SEO plugin. Provide proper meta title, description for each article, page, and categories. Keep it fully SEO Optimized to rank better in Search Engines.
6. Social Media Accounts
It is not that much important but still has some benefits. Create website social media pages and link them to the website. Place them in header/ footer or in the sidebars.
7. Avoid Content Overloading
Avoid too many sliders, content boxes or widgets. Keep website normal and not messy.
8. Website Speed
One of the most important factors in SEO will help you in getting awesome ranking and Adsense approval. Optimize website for Google Page Insights and Pingdom tools. Optimize important factors like:
1. Optimize Images
2. Minify HTML, CSS, JS
3. Leverage Browser Cache
4. Reduce Server Response Time
5. Enable Compression
Happy Themes are quite fast. I recommend using them. You can easily optimize all the above-mentioned issues by using simple plugins like W3 Total Cache, Jetpack, Fast velocity or Autoptimize. Here is a tutorial on how to optimize WordPress website.
9. Proper Pages
10. Proper Header and Footers
Optimize headers and footers in good manners. Avoid using too many links. Use proper logo, menus, and proper fonts etc.
