Google Adsense #4

Yesterday I wrote a message to the google people to reconsider my site as it is in English .. Today I received an e-mail after they visited my site.

Hello Dennis,

Thank you very much for your interest in AdSense. Our goal is to be able
to extend our service to as many web publishers as we can. Unfortunately,
after reviewing we are unable to accept
it into our AdSense program at this time.

In general, we do not accept personal or chat sites or blogs into the
AdSense program. However, if a site contains targeted, text-based content
and/or provide a product or service, we may consider it for participation.

When you submit your application for AdSense, our specialists will review
your website and use their discretion to determine whether your site is
appropriate for the program.

For more information on site requirements, please visit our policies page

Thank you for your understanding.


The Google Team

Damn .. my website is not having targeted, text-based content
Not about syndication, not about RSS. I am laughing my ass off .. In general … my ass.. I’ve seen the just launched typepad weblogs with adsense stuff on it already.

I think I will remove all my categories cause google things it is not targeted, text based content..

:: UPDATE: why can they ACCEPT this website and not mine ??

  1. …and mine, as well as jdb’s. JDB is definately very targeted and personal, though mine does contain a lot of general news.

    Life’s unfair, I guess ;-)

  2. One of the reasons I can think of is that my content runs across several targetted domains and that my blog entries are only a minor portion of content on my site: the photography database is by far more important. #1 on Google for “erasmusbrug” after all.

    Furthermore, I applied with the largest of my sites,, which is rather targetted. To comply with Google’s TOC, I don’t place ads on my bio page or resume, for example.
