Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. Dr. xmen 6/22/12 2:43 AM
I had to change Account Type and Payee Name but I couldn't because it wasn't allowed. The only way was to cancel the current account and create new one. So I did but now I cant get approved. The review keep saying Insufficient Content. Seriously ? The site got more content than it had before. How it wasn't insufficient in first time. And I've seen many sites those have "NONE" content, only providing links and stuff got approved by AdSense. It just plain stupid.

When I submitted the application with new account, it almost took 1 week to get reviewed, same with 2nd time but now it only takes 5 minutes and snap!! the site is rejected because of content. It just templates sent by Google, they don't even review anything. They are making things more complicated than making it easier to use. Is that so hard for them to say where is the problem, which url they crawling? Any idea guys ? I even added

     User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
     Disallow:


in robots.txt but same thing.

Here is link : www.x-squares.com

Thanks :)

The AdSense application process has gotten stricter, which may be why you could previously get approved with your site, but cannot now.

There are a number of pages on your site without content. For example: 

So the solution is to add content. 

And make sure it's content the AdSense bot can find - so plain navigation rather than javascript navigation, for example.

Yeah right, but those absolute links should not be visited by bot. The site provides sitemaps for detailed Urls (Google Webmaster). I have no idea what else I should put in there.

For java navigation, its not only navigation. The site also provide anchor tags inside "noscript" tag. So I hope bot is able to read them ?

I have seen the sites whose domains just bought like 1 month ago and having Google Ads. They all are single page sites with no content but redirecting URLs. More like tinyurl.com.

Thanks for the reply :)

The AdSense crawler reviews your site. Those "absolute links" are where the links in your navigational menu lead to. Unless you have those pages blocked from bot access in your robots.txt file the crawler may visit them when your site is under review. Note that I am not suggesting you block the crawler, since again that may lead to "insufficient content" disapproval.

Consider why you have those blank pages on your site at all - is it really necessary for navigation? 

Once you have a fully approved Adsense account, the ads can be placed on any site, so just because you see sites with less content than yours with AdSense ads doesn't mean that site would pass scrutiny if they used it to apply for a new account.

Alright, I have removed those empty navigation URLs. And resubmitting now.
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. Dr. xmen 6/27/12 9:19 PM
whoops!! another rejection mail with same reason within an hour.
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. PeggyK 6/27/12 9:35 PM
I looked at your site and it looks like you've just removed the menu links to those pages I cited, so now there is no way for the crawler to find your content at all. 

Starting from the front page of your site, how would the AdSense crawler find your site's content?
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. Dr. xmen 6/27/12 10:13 PM
Through links on right side in home page, and http://www.x-squares.com/ShowUsers.aspx will redirect to user profile and profile has url to more content.
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. PeggyK 6/28/12 9:14 AM
The show Users page leads to profiles like this (picked at random), which are essentially just a blank page:


On your home page, most of the links I see on the right side of the page go to download pages.  The download pages have links to rapidshare and megaupload, which might look problematic to the AdSense Crawler, even if the downloads are legal. And the download pages don't really have any content themselves.

Down at the bottom of the navigation on the right side of you home page you have links to Topics in your forum. Presumably that's automatically generated, and again they sometimes don't have much content (for example: http://www.x-squares.com/Topic/i/23/Please-add-a-Replace-All-function.aspx)

And more problematic, once I'm on one of the topic pages, I don't see an obvious way to navigate up to the top of the forum to see the list of all topics.

So in my opinion your site not only has many pages lacking the kind of content AdSense is looking for (substantial text), it's difficult to navigate (which also doesn't comply with AdSense policy).

Doesn't your site have articles somewhere?

No, there is no Download page that has links of RS and MU. There is just one link which I'm aware of, nothing else. Would you mind giving me a download page url that has RS links ?

Well, those are problems topics, topics created by users and explaining their problems. Same as this site(http://productforums.google.com). How can I get more content from that. And how much content do Adsense need ?

> Doesn't your site have articles somewhere? 

It has but some categories are empty(reserved) so I removed the categories browser from menu.

Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. PeggyK 6/28/12 10:24 AM
AdSense is looking for "substantial original' text content. So not download pages, unless the download page has original text content in addition to the download links.

>> No, there is no Download page that has links of RS and MU. There is just one link which I'm aware of, nothing else. Would you mind giving me a download page url that has RS links ? 

Sorry, it wasn't a download page, it was a forum topic: 


I still don't see a way for users to navigate to your forum from your home page.

Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. Dr. xmen 6/28/12 11:12 AM
Alright I will try to add as much as text content I can.

Users do not need to navigate forum because a separate forum is attached to Download page.

I think google adsense bot is crawling the old pages, which were deleted and now no more exists. Is there anyway to know what url is it crawling ?
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. PeggyK 7/1/12 6:23 PM
If the pages don't exist, the bot can't crawl them. You might be able to see in your server logs which pages the bot visited.
Re: Cancelled previous account, now cant get approved with new account. Dr. xmen 7/1/12 8:44 PM
there are several bots those visit the site. Can you tell the IP or IP range for google adsense bot ?
