Guys I am sorry to ask this here but may I suggest an improvement to your rejection email ?
Let us ask a question there, so we don't have to ask here.
Thank you for customer service ( even though I am not a customer yet )
So with this out of the way, I read through this forum and I do understand that 96% rejection rate is the current state of affairs. Not a problem, Google has a right to reject their customers.
I would still like to know what is wrong so I can grow personally and professionally. My goal is to earn money on the side by talking about my experiences and doing research and providing valuable contents to my readership.
Here are the bullet points for my rejection:
- False claims of downloadable or streaming content
- Linking to content that does not exist
- Redirecting users to irrelevant and/or misleading webpages
- Text on a page unrelated to the topic and/or business model of the website.
To #1 ? Is this wrt me creating podcasts of some of my blogs ? Is there something wrong with this ? Can you please explain. Thank you.
To #2 Is this because I have empty Categories ? I gave the blog structure which I intend in filling in over the next few weeks / months.
To #3 Don't know really. Can you provide an example from my site please.
To #4 Well I just got started, had a car accident and report about the financial impact this can have on a family. I agree that at this time, due to personal circumstances, I deviated from the main intended topic. This is so I can provide a personal perspective on spending $20k and how to get about dampening the financial impact.
I am looking for answers from you in order to correct the trajectory I am on with this blog. If my assumptions above are correct, then #2 and #4 will go away over the next few weeks as content grows and Categories are filled in.
Any additional information to #1, and #3 would be appreciated and helpful.
Ps. Can you please improve the on-boarding for and with us. I am quite certain that you could provide an automatic tool which scans a new site and responds with some type of indicator of the probability of being accepted. The tool could then also give more information on how to improve the quality.
I think that would save some manual labor as well.
