How To Make Money Blogging (Start An AdSense Blog)
Blogging can be confusing at the best of times, (let me be honest here). You start using WordPress and you’re blown away with the power and all the themes and in the excitement, I ended up making 20 WordPress sites! LOL. I had a friend helping me style them too. Talk about information overload. Then there are keywords!
When you use MTS AdSense ready themes, they already do most of the hard work for you, their multiple demo layouts are second to none! And if necessary you can change your layout or template further, as they are fully customizable. You can change the font, background, button colours and more. The code/style is customizable via the dashboard (this is not for beginners!). The AdSense theme includes Layouts for; Recipes, Fitness, News, and so many more templates within just one theme… All the plugins come with the theme, so you won’t have to search around for compatible themes. And you get access to a training video and full support with your purchase.

Blogging and AdSense niches
Niches use a combination of keywords and have a CPC (cost per click value) that goes both ways, advertising your blog or placing ads on your blog. AdSense is Google ads and you are basically giving large companies ad space which they are going to pay for. You will need an SEO plugin so you can check your keyword density and make sure you don’t repeat the same word all through the post. If it isn’t natural Google can detect this.
Blogging niches and WordPress design
Your blog shouldn’t be all about the niche you know nothing about or because you like the colour or design. Choose very carefully! You might think it’s a top 10 niche, you’re going to make a lot of money at it! Money grows on trees, niche trees! = NOPE. But it can.
You are going to write about things you are expert in, raising children, lifestyle, travel, mental health, teenager issues or having cancer. You can write about real gritty stuff or make a lifestyle blog. If you are in a scene of Music or Apparel and you think you’ve got what it takes, definitely!
You really need to take care when starting your blog, especially if you are paying out for it. You want to make it a success. So here’s my best advice about content, keywords and AdSense.
AdSense Blog Tips Do’s And Dont’s
- Do use opinion in your blog
- Do Plan your blog taxonomy
- Do post related content/mixed content
- Do buy a Premium Theme to save time
- Do write so people can relate to your blog
- Do write REAL original blogs not FAKE ones
- Do descriptions in each category and tag page
- Do write to attract wider audiences too
- Don’t put too many of your own ads in
- Don’t give up if you’re refused or go keyword mad!
- Do Blog naturally but install Grammarly
- Don’t put too many affiliate links in posts
- Don’t apply/reapply prematurely write posts first
Please forget the keyword and CPC highest thing. There are so many blogs and you will have such high competition with people who are qualified or have years of experience. Simply write what you enjoy writing about and make your blog look beautiful. Don’t put too many ads on your blog. Remember quality over quantity!
Choosing a good theme with AdSense compatibility
You can get some great themes that are AdSense ready from MTS! Most of the themes are AdSense compatible and you can see by clicking the various demos. Of course, there are other theme stores too.
Installing the AdSense code into your blog
MTS themes make it very easy it is done by copying the code you receive when you open your AdSense account and pasting it into Theme Options/General Settings/ Header Code.
Next, you can create auto, responsive or in-post ads in the AdSense settings. Just paste them in Options/Ads and you’re done. Everything is automated with these themes!
Getting accepted in AdSense honestly
The first blog I got accepted for was a free one in Weebly. I was posting about random attractive topics and getting thousands of visitors per month. I got accepted after just a couple of days. I’ve also been refused. I was refused on this blog once or twice. But I found out I was accepted once I had written more when I logged back into AdSense. Don’t delete your header code, wait and see! Another one of my blogs is awaiting acceptance. This blog is accepted as you can see.
AdSense Policy and your policy
If you want to be taken seriously and get approved you also now need to complete your drafted privacy page and display it in the footer or main menu. You should use a cookie bar plugin and an advertising disclosure plugin or page. Also, make sure in the dashboard your age-appropriate settings are accurate. Many companies won’t want to advertise next to adult content. Think about the companies and if they want you representing them.
Once you are approved you will eventually receive a message about ads.txt and all this ensures is that your site is legitimate for higher bidders.
If you are able to use File Manager in CPanel do so, you can copy/paste or upload the file into the public folder, alternatively, there are WordPress plugins to assist you with your file management. And it will take less than a minute to complete. Once you have uploaded this, then you are telling the world that not only your site is relevant but is of high quality to display high-quality ads.
People can get impatient with it all, but if you just use your common sense and a little patience, write more posts and apply again. It’s that simple!
