Do not waste time on Google Adsense. I had 30+ articles on my blog and get 500+ organic visitors and still they rejected my application 3 times. It was there bad luck. After that I started reading articles on affiliate marketing at SML.
I got my first hosting sales in 5 days. $50 commission for 1 sale. Normally i do around 5-7 hosting sales for hosting. Other than i started providing services such as Content writing, SEO and Website design. My earning is good now compare to what adsense pays.
2 months i had got an email from Media.net with approval. But i rejected them, as i'm not interested in showing ads on my website and redirecting visitor to other website for $0.05 per click.
Don't run behind adsense. See how Harsh earns money from his blog.
Can you see ads on Blogging cage, BloggingTipsTricks, Bloggers passion or any other popular blogs.
So reject adsense and go for affiliate marketing.
