Here are the most asked questions for WordPress users who wanted to start with AdSense.
How do I add Google AdSense to WordPress without a business plan?
Google Adsense doesn’t work with websites that are not self-hosted. If you are using a wordpress.com subdomain, then Adsense will most probably won’t accept your website. You will need a paid hosting website to get accepted and of course with well written, old articles. So, the answer to this question is NO, it won’t work.
How do I insert the Google AdSense code into my website created without WordPress?
Just simply copy the ad code from your Google Adsense account. Then paste it on your desired position on where you wanted to show your AdSense ads.
Why my site isn’t getting approved by AdSense?
There are a few reasons why your website wasn’t approved by Adsense, here are some common issues.
- Your website is new
This is just one of the reason, you need to have at least a month or 2 to apply for Adsense. In my case, a 2 months old got approved.
- Less to no content
Most likely there are quite a lot of publishers who just rushed to apply on Adsense, thinking that 5 x 500 words articles will work. No, we are already in the year 2020 and Adsense has become more strict than ever before. You need to have at least 20 articles done.
- Plagiarism – Are you re-using content from other sources? If you’re one of those who just copy and paste contents from other articles. Then don’t ever think you will get approved as long as you have more content. Then you are 100% mistaken. You must have a well-written article with 100% plagiarism-free. There are tons of software that can help you check this free of charge. One of these is Grammarly’s free plagiarism checker so far the best and is the one I am using right now.
- Niche or content type
Gambling, casinos, adult-like porn, pharmaceutical, and other for adults only type of contents. These are not allowed to show AdSense ads and therefore won’t be approved on their platform at all.
Sometimes, image sources are also important, if you have the license for those images you are using on your content. Then you are fine, you can get free licensed images for at least 10 images from shutter stock. If not it would be likely that AdSense won’t approve your application.
Why has AdSense ads stopped showing on my WordPress, but inserting the same code shows ads on my other WordPress blog?
If your new WordPress website is not yet added on your Adsense account. If the website is not yet verified by Adsense then it won’t show any ads at all. There was a recent policy on Adsense that each new website you own must be added to your account. Therefore, it must be approved first before showing any ads.
