No Objectionable Content
Google has a list of blog topics that will not be approved for Adsense. Among them are gambling, firearms and pornography. Make sure your blog content doesn’t fall within these categories.
You must publish original content that provides value to your readers. To improve your chances of Adsense approval, do the following.
Have at least 20 posts with at least 500 words each to be on the safe side.
Users should be able to navigate through your blog without any problems. Your site must be well laid out with the necessary menus, categories and tags.
