Every blogger has a dream to earn some money by writing good content in his blog and placing ads on it. Google Adsense helps us to earn through our blog.
Getting Adsense approval is not as difficult as it seems. Earlier, it was very easy to get Adsense for your website but due to tough and increasing competition, getting Adsense got tougher. Many techies do a lot of unnecessary things to make their website ready for Google Adsense.
But in reality, they just spoil the website and make it very complicated for their visitors as well. And in such a situation, they are not able to get Adsense Approval, and traffic also drops.
With Adsense, bloggers can make a good income but there are other alternatives like Adsterra, Media.net, Ezoic, and many more, which are also one of the best Google Adsense alternatives in case you don’t get Google Adsense. If you also want to make Adsense your main means of earning, then definitely read this article.
Earlier, Google Adsense was approved by just having web content on it. But nowadays, Google looks at multiple factors like not only look of the website but also the content that Is it suitable for users? or Is it valuable content? or Is it really helpful for the people? and takes the final decision after these considerations.
After submitting the application, either your website gets approved or Google shows an error. It’s obvious if you are reading this post then your Google Adsense is rejected due to Low-value content, which is one such error. Don’t get down definitely, if you will follow this guide completely you will get your Google Adsense approved in 2022.
You will not only get your Google Adsense approved from rejection but also your site earnings will also increase fastly. First, let’s learn what is the meaning of low-value content or thin content of Adsense and what is the exact main reason behind this error or reason.
I’m going to tell all the things related to this in this and I will try to explain it to you in simple language so that if you ever get this error then you can solve it.
What is Adsense’s Low-Value Content Problem?
Have you also got a similar mail on which it is written that –
Low-value content – Your site does not yet meet the criteria of use in the Google publisher network ”. For more information, review the following resources :
- Minimum content requirements
- Make sure your site has unique high quality content and a good user experience
- Webmaster quality guidelines for thin content
- Webmaster quality guidelines
After seeing this, people will often think that I have written very good quality content, and word count is also fine, yet why this error is coming.
Actually, this Adsense error does not come due to the lack of quality content and content word count. There are some other reasons for this, about which we will know below.
In 2011, Google updated an algorithm named Panda. Its only purpose is whether the content that the webmaster is writing on his site is really useful to the people or not. And remove the one who is not fulfilling these criteria from the SERP ranking.
Before 2022, the problem of low-value content did not come as much, but now it has become the biggest obstacle.
What is Thin content?
As I mentioned above quality content and word count have nothing to do with it. It simply means that there are some pages or articles on your website that are not providing some value.
There could be some reasons for this,
- Unwanted pages
- Outdated articles
- Broken links
- Doorway pages
1. Unwanted Pages
There are also some pages in your blog which should be in Noindex but they are now indexed due to improper settings and are not providing any value to the audience.
To find similar pages in your website/blog, go directly to Google and search site:yoursite.TLD, eg: site:”mohitbahl.com”
After that, you will see all the indexed pages. Then from that, you will know which pages should have been inside noindexed.
Tags, page numbers, and categories pages are all considered thin pages or thin content in the eyes of google.
2. Outdated Contents
One of the basic mantras to get success in blogging is to always be fresh. Means always updating your old articles with the trend and writing new articles.
People do not get benefits from outdated content and it is easily known to google that this content has become old and is no longer providing any value. Then your ranking also goes down and your authority too.
3. Broken Links :
If your page is redirecting a link to another site or someone else’s page is redirecting a link to your site, I mean what we call Backlink, it is also necessary to audit.
A broken link means that the link you created is not working yet. There can be various reasons for this, such as if the link provider has added some other link in that place, or the page in which your link was is now noindex.
You can find and fix all this by doing a proper site audit.
Ahrefs is the best tool for this.
4. Doorway Pages :
If you search site:yoursite.TLD in Google, then you also see some such pages which do not matter if they are there or not. Like I mentioned above tags, categories ( ), page numbers, blank pages, etc.
The sooner you can remove all these from google, the better. There are 2 ways to do this with the help of the Yoast SEO plugin and if you want to do it manually, with the help of URL removal of the Google search console.
If you apply for Adsense through these pages, the chances of getting Adsense approved are very high.

Everyone knows what Adsense means for a blogger because it is considered to be the best ad network. And all that google keeps on looking for is the Adsense approval trick, but nothing like this trick happens.

I am going to tell below how I can solve it in a few steps and I will also tell below how I prepared my site and got Adsense approval.
Tips 1# Don’t be too worried, first go to Semrush and do a site audit. You will get to know all the broken links in your site from this, then fix them.
