    When I get my blog going I want to have adsense on it to help make some money from it. I heard that it is kind of hard to be approved. It's going to be all original posts that are not copied from anywhere so I think that will help based on what I have read.

    I was wanting to know how many blog posts I should try to have before I apply for adsense approval. Is there a minimum amount of posts that I should make sure to have?

    You would want to have atleast 5-6 articles posted on your blog for even being considered by Adsense. Make sure that the content exceeds 600 words, and also see to it that you apply using the root domain only and not a sub-domain.

    There is no set number of posts that you will need to get AdSense approval but you want to make sure that you have a nice website with good quality and original content.

    When I was approved I believe I had 14 or 15 (I can't remember 100% for sure) posts and all were over 800 words. I also had all the policy requirements and everything else that Google wants in a website before I applied. I was approved the 1st time that I applied.

    The main thing is that you want to have QUALITY ORIGINAL content and not something that was scraped or spun.

    If you have good quality content then I would wait till around 15 posts or more just to make sure that you have enough content to satisfy Google. You can try with less but then you have a higher chance of getting denied and having to go through the approval process again.

    I have already started writing some articles and they are over 1000 words each, is that too long or is that still ok? I didn't know if maybe there was a point where the articles are considered too long and the length would actually hurt your chances.

    Its ok to have 1000 words article over your blog , it will certainly increase your chances of getting approval from Adsense easily.

    I have worked over many Amazon review websites which are having 3000+ Words Pillar Article over homepage , and
    1500-2000+ Words Article in inner pages .

    These websites easily get approved , basically its the quality of the content , traffic , bounce rate you are getting over your blog/website which plays important role in getting your site approved from Adsense.

    I didn't know if there was a point where it got to bee too much and would hurt your chances. I have heard that too little content and words for your pages can hurt you but I didn't see anything about the larger amounts. Thanks.

    I think Google is more worried about you having a good quality content on your website and enough so it looks good. I know they don't have any kind of minimum to apply but you still want to make sure you have more than just a few.

    There is no minimum number of posts to get approved by Google for Adsense but you want to make sure that you have a nice full looking site. I would shoot for 20 or more posts plus all the usual pages like a contact page, an about page, a policies page which includes a privacy policy and any other relevant pages.

    Google looks for quality in a site and something that would be valuable to people who visit that site. Just concentrate on building up a real good quality site first then after that worry about getting Adsense approval.

    I think they just don't want to see spam sites with scraped content or filled up with a lot of affiliate ads or other things they look bad at. As long as your site is something that is nice looking and not full of junk then you can get approval.

    They don't have any number requirements for the amount of posts you have to have but they want a good site. You have to have good content, good navigation, terms and privacy policy, content that is not thin or too little and things like that.

    They want good looking sites and not some that look cheap and low quality.

    True but after people get approved on one site then they will often put their Adsense code on cheap low-quality spammy type websites.

    Google doesn't keep up with things too much after a site is approved to see if Adsense is being put on junk sites.

    I see that all the time. I don't know why Google doesn't do something about it more.

    They do catch some but it's just too hard for them to have eyes on all websites an Adsense user has their code on. They have somewhere to report other sites that are violating their Adsense guidelines but I don't know how well it does at removing those sizes from Adsense use.

    I have never used it myself but I have seen it somewhere but I can't remember where.

    They should do something about it because that will help to reduce the number of trash spam sites since many of those are put up just for adsense.

    They do and often people get their Adsense accounts banned because they put their Adsense code on sites that don't meet their guidelines.

    I don't know how aggressive they check though because if you think about it they are still making money on those low-quality sites when people click on the ads.

    If they are making money from even the bad sites then they probably don't care too much.

    I think it's a little of both. They care a little because if the advertisers are not happy with the sites their ads are being shown then they might lose the advertiser. At the same time, they are making money which I am sure they like.

    When you have a big part of the advertising market and everyone is afraid to get on your bad side I guess that means you can get away with things like that.

    They need to keep their quality levels up or they might find Facebook and Bing get above them in market share.
