Get a Custom Domain

It is also advisable to apply for AdSense using a top-level domain. For example, your domain should be something like example.com and not a subdomain like blog.example.com.
Responsive website design with easy navigation
The first impression of any website depends mainly on the blog structure. Make sure to use a good theme for better visual appeal. Consider the placements of widgets like header, sidebar, footer and blog space since it will help in the future for ad placements.
Many free HTML templates are available in WordPress. Choose a theme, which looks more professional to take advantage of AdSense approving your site. Keep the site simple with proper menus for navigation. The site should be designed in a way it is appealing for users to visit again. A simple, professional and user & mobile-friendly website with a faster load time is more appreciated by Google.
High-quality blogs and posts
Google always wants a quality resource. This is the most important criteria to get through the AdSense approval process. Check the below points before spending time on your blog writing.
- Do not copy-paste content from other sites or use content spinners to modify content from other blogs. Make sure your content is unique.
- Each blog should have a minimum of 700 words. Words less than this cannot describe any topic properly.
- Write at least 20 quality blogs before applying for approval. Check for any grammar or spelling mistakes.
- Use copyright-free images from websites like pexels.com
- Use a proper logo and favicon for your site
- Do not write content which is prohibited by Google policies
Finally, create a contact page. This is much needed to establish a connection with your customers. You can either create a contact form for users to fill or simply display your contact information.
Make your site Search Engine Friendly
Your website should be search engine friendly. In other words, your pages or posts should not be blocked by Google. To ensure this we would suggest you Google Webmaster. Verify the ownership of the site and submit a sitemap which helps the search engine to crawl your site easily. You can also check by typing site:example.com in the search box to get the list of crawled pages. This can, in turn, fasten your AdSense approval process.
Remove other Ad Networks
Google AdSense allows the use of other Ad networks along with it. But do not apply for AdSense with these ads on your website. Make your site ads free. Once you get approval from Google, then you can mix up other network ads to your site.
