Why does my blog not meet AdSense eligibility requirements 0 Recommended Answers 13 Replies 0 Upvotes
1 Recommended Answer
$0 Recommended Answers
My UK-based blog (about activities for children) is just over six months old, I have 80 published posts in that time, all unique content which is well formatted and illustrated with photos which I own the copyright to. I have a Privacy Policy and About Me page, and traffic from various social media platforms and search engines.  However,  the Earnings tab on Blogger still says I don't currently qualify for Adsense.  There's nothing in the published AdSense eligibility criteria which I don't seem to meet, yet I am still unable to apply.  Any ideas why this might be?  Many thanks in advance.

Dunno, but if Blogger says you don't qualify basically they saying the site isn't anywhere near ready and they saving your time and Adsense. Maybe there's some other issue but as you never actually told us what this "blog" is then impossible to give any more advice.

URL - ? 
so 80 posts over 6 months would be about 12 a months yes? Or are all 80 from 6 months back and nothing recent? See ... I cannot tell if you don't let us know

As FATHER TED requested, please share your blog's address. It's difficult to comment without seeing the blog in question.

It's http://ossicones-and-oxygen.blogspot.com and to answer the question about posts, I post regularly, roughly 3 times a week.

This isn't an answer, I'm sure others will have insights, but you only have 13 pages indexed by Google. Have you recently made changes to your blog, maybe deleted pages or reorganised it?

You also have broken links which would be a quality fail. Find them at:

On the main/ home page of the blog, there is a long twitter feed in the sidebar.
Wonder if that takes people off the blog?
 
Maybe remove that and simply post a link to your social media pages/ accounts. 
Those twitter feeds seem to duplicate content on the blog.

Thanks - I've not recently reorganised the pages (I haven't ever done this), so not sure why only 13 are indexed by google.  Any idea what might cause this?  Twitter feed of late mostly duplicates content, but hasn't always been the case - I sometimes post to Twitter when I haven't got enough content for a full blog post. I don't know why there are so many broken links, I will endeavour to fix.

The robots.txt looks fine, and there isn't anything in the HTTP header or on page that would prevent indexing, as far as I can see, so that's a bit of a mystery to me. Have you changed anything recently with regard to your blog (excluding adding articles)?

The only thing I've done except add posts is to put the tag Pinterest give you in the page header to link your website to your Pinterest account.

Again, just trying to provide insights.

You have some pages such as https://ossicones-and-oxygen.blogspot.com/2019/07/ which effectively has no text and they are looking for copious text on all pages.

Probably more insightful, but a 100% guess, is "more posts" at the bottom of the page returns: 

https://ossicones-and-oxygen.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2019-12-17T21:44:00Z&max-results=13

With that magical number of "13" embedded. Maybe that's a clue?

rather than the more traditional https://ossicones-and-oxygen.blogspot.com/page_2 (just for illustrative purposes)



It maybe worth your while creating a sitemap with all your articles linked on it and ensuring that is linked to from your main page. Just thoughts!

Thanks - I've used one of the standard blog templates on Blogger which creates those views i.e. all blogs from a particular month. I can create a sitemap, but if the template itself precludes AdSense eligibility that's a bit of a trickier problem to solve. 

Is there anything else that might be stopping Google indexing pages?

I don't use blogger, but it just seemed maybe co-incidental that you have 13 page sin Google's index and the max number in the "more" is 13 as though the search bots can't see your other content as there is  a search rather than standard link. That is why I suggested a physical sitemap so the search bots can access all of your pages at once which would get more indexed and maybe take you over the eligibility finish line (once the broken links are repaired.)

Thanks for previous suggestions - my site now has no broken links, I've submitted the sitemap to Google (and it's in robots.txt) and their crawlers have picked up a lot more of my blog's pages, and I've replaced the Twitter feed with a link to Twitter. But it still says I'm not eligible for AdSense - do you have any more ideas on why please? Thanks in advance.
