I got accepted by Google adsense!

Life is about not giving up easily!

Just thought I share my experience so that new bloggers after me may benefit.

During my first month of blogging, I was in my monkey see; monkey do phase. So I innocently applied to Goggle adsense when I was only averaging 2 visitors a day. 

I got rejected with a cryptic message that it was because I have too many keywords and cybersquatting? What's that in english? 

After 5 months of fun experimenting with different kinds of post, and thanks to all of you, I've finally managed to average more than 20 visitors a day -  a 10 fold increase!  (See? Everything is relative! Why spoil my fun by comparing myself to blogs with thousands of visitors a week?)

I re-applied to Google last week and they said OK today. Nothing has changed at my blog! Why don't Google Adsense just say the requirement is X minimum of visitors a week to be accepted in the first place?   

Anyway, I've just "pimped" my blog with Google ads. Hope I've not overdone it.

Little things that make me happy!

  6. Hi OT83,

    Ya lor! After checking dictionary, I got worry I am breaking some copyright law or something - silly cybersquatting reason!

    So the trick is to get average 20 visitors a day - why so secretive?

    Strange world....

    1. Hi SMOL,
      Could I know how do you receive payment? Do they send over a cheque or something? I'm very new to blogging =)

    2. Paper N Sort,

      Thanks for asking! Makes me feel good that I can help you as others have helped me when I started :)

      There are 2 options when you signed up for Adsense:

      1) Payment by cheque

      2) Money collection at Western Union centres. I saw one at Lucky Plaza.

      Nice blog you have ;)

      Have fun!
