My website is 6 months old and only gets less than 100 visitors daily. Therefore, I applied for Google AdSense, but it didn’t approve my request. So, I tried my best to fix my mistake by displaying ads on my blog to earn money. It wasn’t easy as many bloggers think until I followed some of the tricks to get my site approved by Google AdSense.
When I first connected my website with Google AdSense. The AdSense team refused my website to display ads for 2 direct reasons:
1- Low Value Content
2- Site Behavior: Navigation
How to fix Low Value Content
Low-Value content is the most common issue in which Google doesn’t approve sites to display ads or monetize. And, it gives you 4 points that you should check and fix before sending your site for review again.
1- Minimum Content Requirement
If you type on the Google search bar; what are the minimum content requirements to get your site approved by Google AdSense? You will get the information exactly as shown in the image below.
That means Google wants to tell us that we should publish good content which contains articles and pages that brings real audiences to our website. And these are Google AdSense requirements for accepting playing ads.
2- Make sure your site has unique high-quality content and a good user experience
In the second requirement, Google wants to inform us again that the published content must be unique and of high quality. Publishing more than 16 articles is not enough to get ads approved. And here, you should be careful of what you are publishing. Also, you can check by yourself if your content is unique or plagiarized. You can use [duplichecker free site tool] to verify your articles deeply.
3- Webmaster Quality Guidelines for ‘Thin Content
What does Google mean here by thin content?
The content with little or no value to the visitor is referred to as thin content. This includes automatically generated content, unhelpful affiliate content, and content stolen from other sites.
Google AdSense repeatedly wants to tell us that even if we are publishing unique content, it may not approve it, it is thin content.
4- Webmaster Quality Guidelines
The last AdSense approval requirement is an important point. Why? Because publishing thin content Google will not index your website, which means the owner of the thin content sites will not get organic visitors. And at this point, I connected my site with SEO tools such as Ahrefs and Seobility to crawl all my pages and discover issues.
As a result, there are no specific requirements to make our sites display ads until we publish only good content.
How to Fix Behavior Navigation on Your Site?
I also got this Site behavior: navigation AdSense error when I had applied for Google AdSense for the first time. Moreover, I thought Google was wrong in reviewing my website. But after using SEO tools and checking deeply, I admired that the Google AdSense team was totally right for not approving my website to show ads.
And here also Google AdSense points to 4 issues that should be fixed as requirements to get approved.
1- False Claim of Downloadable or Streaming Content
At this first issue point, Google AdSense indicates two critical issues that everyone should resolve.
- False Claim of Downloadable
I personally promote many affiliate programs in my blog posts. And the reason why Google doesn’t like to redirect visitors to false claims, such as buying products or downloading applications. Therefore, if you are including this kind of this point, make sure to remove it before applying to Google AdSense.
- Streaming Content
Most of us embed videos while writing a post. It could be a YouTube video or any other video from any platform. All of these videos, however, are protected by copyright. Therefore, ensure that all your videos are not copyrighted, and I suggest removing those kinds of videos during review time, making sure to avoid the Streaming Content issue.
2- Linking to Content that does not Exist
We are all aware that internal and external links are beneficial to Google indexing and SEO. That is why we add links when we write articles or create web pages. But sometimes, those links that we have added to our sites may redirect to broken links, or possibly result to ‘404’ or ‘302’.
As a result, conduct a thorough review to determine whether any of your links are considered broken or do not result in a ‘200’.

3- Redirecting users to irrelevant and/or misleading webpages
Google AdSense doesn’t like finding pop ads on our blog that redirect visitors to irrelevant pages. Even though you are adding those pop-ads to earn a commission. Try to remove them before sending your site to get monetized by Google.
4- Text on a page unrelated to the topic and/or business model of the website
At the 4 points, Google wants us to ensure not to publish any post or text that is not related to the topic. To resolve this issue, just make certain that your niche and the content on your blog or website are similar.
