Google AdSense Application Rejected

This is the snippet of an email which I received from Google in response to my application for Google AdSense . This is the second time this is happening. The first time, I thought it might be because my blog was on a sub-domain. The second rejection shows this is not the case.


Hello Kiran,

Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately, after

reviewing your application, we're unable to accept you into Google AdSense

at this time.

We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.


- Unacceptable site content


Further detail:

Unacceptable site content: In order to participate in Google AdSense,

publishers' websites and application information must satisfy the

following guidelines:

for AdSense.

*You must provide accurate personal information with your application that

matches the information on your page.

*Your website must contain substantial, original content.

*Your site must comply with Google AdSense program policies: which

include Google's webmaster quality guidelines:

If your site satisfies the above criteria in the future, please resubmit

your application and we'll review it as soon as possible.

Unacceptable Content??? Could somebody please point me to "unacceptable content" on this blog? I'd be grateful to you.

I did get a hint - but I rejected the thought. The last time my application had been rejected, the latest post had been the book review of Frontline Pakistan. One point I had made in that post was my opinion that US (rather - the US-Russia cold war) had been a reason for instability in the Indian Sub-continent. Now could that have anything to do with this whole rejection matter?

Frankly, I don't think so. I would be very surprised and even more disappointed if it did. There has to be some other reason. All I have to do is - find it!

  • so not pretty !

  • My application is pending with them
    for the last 3 months.May be I should expect a similar reply.Let us see

  • Hey, I was rejected too. And I got a similar mail saying with 'Page Type' in the heading instead of 'Unacceptable site content'. I have decided not to reapply. *There goes my fortune.*

    The layout looks a wee bit cluttered to me. Besides, the alignment of the stuff in the sidebars goes left, right, center. (Buttons to the left, other stuff in the middle.) I suggest you put everything in the same line.

  • @Pavi: I agree! Although my photoblog has been accepted - so thats a consolation :-)

    @BK Chowla: Let's be optimistic - and hope that your application is accepted

    @Julia Scissor: The thought of layout (and the google webmaster guidelines) did cross my mind - but then I have seen several sites with absolutely ridiculous alignment featuring Google Ads. But thanks for that pointer - I guess I will look into the guidelines again and see if I can spot something there.

  • What is unacceptable content and what is expected, they should have a list of expected content then...
