Hi GOOGLE, I was wondering if GOOGLE adsense would work with picture website? LeagueMeme 3/15/12 10:51 PM
Hi,

I was wondering if i can place google ad on picture website similar to 9gags, and any of the popular meme website. Would there be a problem? I already am a partner with google adsense on youtube.

Thank you!

Ads on image sites won't work. Adsense bots need a lot of text in order to be able to understand what a site is all about and serve ads accordingly. It would look different if you have a lengthy description of each image on your pages.

What about 9gags, or any other meme website? How are they putting ads up with no text at all?

Would adding a description / introduction make me eligible to apply for ads?

Thank you

Perhaps Google couldn't turn down 9gags due to the high traffic they were attracting?

I'll note that 9gags isn't using the standard Adsense code and so they're probably allowed to do things that your average Adsense publisher isn't.

Ah so you won't be able to apply for advertisement if i decided to make a picture/meme/rageface website?

If that's the route you want to go, then I would make the site and build a lot of traffic to it like they did.
Then you have a compelling argument to why you should be allowed to publish Adsense on it.
See without the traffic first, Google has to look at the merits of the site, which is determined by the text, and what traffic it gets.
If it gets very little traffic and has very little text (or no text at all), then it does not appear to have value. So if you can create that value by getting visitors to use your site a lot then you have a sufficient argument on why your site should be allowed to publish Adsense.

Take twitter for example.
Didn't we all think it was just a bunch of spam in the beginning and have a hard time gaining viewership because of that?
Then users turned it into a valuable resource and membership climbed and so did content creation.
Only then did it turn from a 140 word or less comment spam site into valuable advertising space.
