Day 84 – Google Adsense Application Re-Submitted….And Guess What?

After having reorganised my site, updated the content I submitted it for Adsense.

Now this is the first time I have submitted this particular site for Adsense.

With having ensured the content was up to scratch and got the navigation sorted out, I was quietly confident that this would get accepted.

And…

It didn’t!

Same reason as before – Insufficient content.

In the Arbicash training it suggests that 15 or so articles would be enough for an Adsense application to be accepted.

Unfortunately it seems that the process and perhaps even the criteria for approval have changed.

It looks like I am going to have to put even more content up on the site.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing because the site is going to have to be regularly updated anyway as the business model unfolds.  It is just a little frustrating that I can’t start driving traffic and massaging conversions to start making a profit yet.

However there is a glimmer of hope.

One of the members of the Facebook Group that I am part of shared, their site and how much revenue they were generating from it.  I won’t share the site here but they had recently generated over 38 Million page views in the last 30 days with an advertising revenue of $400,000 a month!  Based on Jeff Hunt’s figures of an approximate 25% profit margin, that is still a cool $100k a month.

So there is hope, it is possible and I am in an environment where I can get access to people already doing it successfully.

It does start to reveal potential challenges in the future though… primarily one of cashflow.  You have to pay for your traffic first, then get the Ad clicks, then wait at least 30 days for the ad revenue to be paid to you.  With a $400k turnover, that is quite a cashflow challenge.

Though not a bad problem to have.
