Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. ajtayh 6/14/11 7:26 AM
I applied for google adsense about a week ago, and got approved. Then it seemed like every other day Google would re-review my application and cancel my account. I'd have to resubmit but it usually got approved a few hours later and would last another day or two before it got disapproved again. Today they disapproved it again, but this time its not giving me the option to resubmit. Their email was very vague and I have no idea where to go from here. Any insight?

Hello XXXXXXXX,

Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. After reviewing your
application, our specialists have found that it does not meet our
program criteria. Therefore, we are unable to accept you into our
program.

We have certain policies in place that we believe will help ensure the
effectiveness of Google ads for our publishers as well as for our
advertisers. We review all publishers, and we reserve the right to
decline any application. As we grow, we may find that we are able to
expand our program to more web publishers with a wider variety of web
content.

Please note that we may not be able to respond to inquiries regarding
the specific reasons for our decision. Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

Note this email was sent after a couple of days of already being approved and running adsense on my site.

Site is www.cliffeed.com incase you wanted to take a look. Thanks for any help!

What exactly did the first approval message say? There is a stepped approval process whereby they tell you to access your account and then place the ads and a short time later they will fully review the site. When they do a complete review, if the site doesn't comply completely with policies and guidelines, they will either disable the account or require you to apply again.

The final email you posted is usually the one they send when they aren't in the site.

Your site doesn't contain a lot of original content, and only links to other news sites, which could be why.

Hmm it definitely didn't go in steps for me. I applied once and got reject for insufficient content when I first made the website. (I had nothing on it at that point).  Once i began updating it with content, I resubmitted and it seemed like I got approved but they never sent a confirmation email or anything telling me what to do next. I just placed the ads on my site and went with it until I got rejected a day or two later.

The site gives summaries for news articles. Nothing is copied, the summaries are all rewritten in my own words, I just link to the full news article. And all the pictures used are under the creative commons license. I'm pretty sure everything I did complied with the adsense policies. Where does one go from this point?

BTW im getting this message now when I try to login to adsense:

Account Not Active
An AdSense account does not exist for this login, as it is associated with an unapproved application. For more information about your application, please review the message we sent to the email address you provided with your application.

It used to give me the option to resubmit but not anymore. And I appreciate your response Gracey thank you for taking the time to help out.

You said that you had an approved adsense account?

I applied for google adsense about a week ago, and got approved.

Unless you received a Welcome to Adsense email, then it wasn't approved - all I can see are messages rejecting your application.

The site gives summaries for news articles. Nothing is copied, the summaries are all rewritten in my own words, I just link to the full news article.

I'm afraid most of the summaries I looked at were no more than few lines long, written in point form (granted, I didn't look at everything, but I did look at four or five randomly). If that's what the entire thing consists of in each post, it probably  isn't enough. Have you got any full articles you've written (basically more than 150 words or so)?

Adsense requires a considerable amount of original content for it to be sufficient for them to put ads on. Nobody really knows 100% for sure what "considerable" means, but it definitely means more than a couple of lines per post.

The fact is, we can only give you ideas or suggestions as to why, since we are just volunteers here. Based on what we have learned by experience, we can suggest things like not enough content, or unacceptable content, but if Adsense just decides not to accept a person without giving a correctable reason, we can only make our best guess.

Yeah I never got an approved email, but I was able to put ads on my site and log into my adsense account so I assumed it got approved. Sounds like it never got approved to begin with. Thanks for shedding some light on that. 

As far as the content, unfortunately the whole purpose of the site is to be short and to the point. Some articles are more than a few bullet points while others are just around 4-5.  

Once again I appreciate you taking your time to respond to my questions. I think at this point I'll just wait a while until I add more content to the site and see if anything changes. 

Last question, if I am not able to resubmit using my current email, am I allowed to submit my site under a different email or is that against policy?
Re: Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. Gracey 6/14/11 12:37 PM
Usually it's better to submit a second application with a new email address, so yes, that would be the suggestion I'd make.
Re: Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. ajtayh 6/14/11 12:39 PM
Thanks Gracey you've been great. I'll do that after I let the site pick up for a month or two. Thanks again!
Re: Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. ajtayh 6/16/11 1:17 PM
Alright I submitted a new application under a new email address. Today I was able to access the new account, but I never got any message from google telling me I got accepted. Nor did I get any instructions on what I need to do next? It looks like the account is fully functional but I learned from my first try that that may not be the case. Am I supposed to wait for them to contact me still or what?
Re: Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. Gracey 6/16/11 1:25 PM
I don't know - I've asked one of the pros to look in on it for you.
Re: Adsense got disapproved after it has already been approved for a week. ajtayh 6/17/11 9:12 AM
Thank you, hopefully they can shed some light on the situation.

It looks like this account was shut off because you had a previously disabled account. Publishers aren't allowed to apply for another account if they've already got a disabled one. Sorry.
