Why did adsense accept my site?

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by newby, May 14, 2010.

    This is all new to me and I need a little info.
    I started a website in december using a Godaddy template. So my site doesn't look that great, you can tell an amatuer did it.
    I sell handmade items, I usually get less then ten visitors a day, I make a few sales a week.
    So just for the heck of it, I applied for an Adsense account and they accepted.

    First of all, I can't understand why they accepted me.
    And second, do I really want to bother with it? From what I read here, it seems I will be earning nothing or a few pennies at best.
    Will if hurt my future prospects with adsense if I decline this time?
    Thanks

    I dont understand what you are asking.

    You do not have to decline....just do not install the ads.

    Google cannot loose. They want impressions regardless.

    You dont get paid until you make 100. They have made plenty more by then.

    Its win win for Google

    so you have just applied and they accepted; you can leave your account inactive and use it another time when you need it

    well you need to be more informed with other options.

    cpalead.com, sharecash.org, perfecttracking.com and other affiliate sites.

    best thing to do is basically choose 1 that fits your style... and i agree with wordpress... i don't understand what you're asking either

    as for my personal preference i would go with cpalead.com. their customer support is awesome and a majority of their content is good.

    Google rank there Adsence acceptance based on content. So if your website has unique sales items this will be what gave you the boost.

    Even if you don't wont to put adsence on your main website maybe setting up a blog as once your account is accepted you can add adsence to any site you own.

    Thank you for your replies.

    To clarify, I asked for a adsense account and they gave it to me. Now that I know more about it, I do not want to use adsense on my site at this time.
    So if I don't use this account now, will it effect my ability to start an account with them in the future?

    If you are selling items that you make (on your website), & you have Adsense on your site. You will be sending customers to your competition.

    Adsense isn't for every site, are you willing to give up customers for a few extra dollars?

    If you don't have a lot of traffic you won't make much money with Adsense.

    Save your Adsense account for another site.

    don't be too confused on the matter.. If you don't want to serve adsense on your site, you do so.. Just place the ads when you think you want it to be placed already..

    Hi,

    Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's marketing efforts. Examples include rewards sites, where users are rewarded with cash or gifts, for the completion of an offer, and the referral of others to the site. The industry has four core players: the merchant (also known as 'retailer' or 'brand'), the network, the publisher (also known as 'the affiliate') and the customer. The market has grown in complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third parties vendors.

    Regards.

    I am using Google and Geegain. Then I have an experience about these both. You can also try Geegain for advertising and publishing under one account. Geegain gives $ 5.00 free for advertise to new users. Then you can try it and get any idea about it.

    Congrats for the approval mate, if you do not want to use adsense on that particular site, move on with the sales... And later on you can add adsense to another website of yours... :)

    Hope this helps, Good Luck ;)

    I guess it's because you're from a developped country, so they accept pretty easily new accounts.
    Now, of course you probably have no interest in adding it to your merchant site, it will bring you peanuts (because low traffic) and may drive potential buyers away.
    But you can ad your ads on any other site, you don't need to open a new account for this.
    So there are things to recommend for adsense earnings (good traffic) but in the meantime if you want to keep your account a little active while benefiting your sales, it would be to join adsense revenue sharing sites such as shetoldme.com (full disclosure, it's mine) and countless others that let you create backlinks to your main site while displaying your adsense ads.
    If you need more info, contact me via PM. But it's easy to understand, you should keep your account active and earn some money with it, if you have spare time.

    If adsense team accepted your account, that means that your site follows their TOS. So start to place an ads on your site.

    Newby, don't always pay attention to what you read here about Adsense earnings and people making pennies with it.

    Firstly, I agree that your website adheres to the terms and conditions of Adsense and that is why it was given to you. Adsense do not approve accounts based on the website layout or template. It has mainly got to do with content.

    Secondly, it is not to say you will earn pennies. The best way to see what your earning potential is with Adsense is to add it to your site and leave it for a month or two. Adsense is by far the best paying PPC program around.

    Thirdly, if you do have a website on which you want to sell goods, do one really want to place ads? If you have good traffic and earn a good income from sales, why ad any ads for that matter? It may look to visitors as if your website is not earning a good income and you are trying to make money from ads as well.

    Personally I would keep the Adsense account. You could always start a second, third or fourth website later and place adsense on them. But, if you are not interested you can cancel your adsense account. You can always re-apply at a later stage, Google will not keep it against you.
