How many posts are required in a blog to apply for AdSense?

This is one of the common doubts asked by many new bloggers - how many posts are required in a blog before applying for AdSense. Find the answers in this article.

You have started a new blog and you started getting some traffic. It's cool but when is the right time to apply for AdSense and start earning some money? How many articles you need in your blog to be eligible to participate in Google AdSense program? 10 articles are enough? Or, 50? You won't find a definite answer in the program policies or the AdSense terms and conditions. Let's try to find an answer here.

How many articles are required to get AdSense approval?

Google has no where mentioned anything about the minimum number of posts required before you can apply for AdSense on a blog. Obviously, just having a lot of posts in your blog will not make you eligible to participate in this program.

I have seen many people reporting they have hundreds of posts in their blog but their application was rejected. At the same time, many others have reported that they got the application approved with just 5 or 10 posts in their blog.

AdSense Post Requirement

As I said above, there are no hard and fast rule on how many articles are required on a blog to be eligible for AdSense. It just depends on how impressive your blog appears to the reviewer at Google. When you submit your blog for AdSense, a reviewer from Google will look at your website. If the reviewer is impressed with the quality of articles he sees, you would get approved, even if you have just a few articles. A reviewer will not read more than a few articles and so, make sure you do not have any low quality articles when you submit the application to Google.

In some countries like India and China, Google is recommending that your blog should be at least 6 month old. Read more on should blogs wait for 6 months before using AdSense.

Also, read how much traffic is required to apply for AdSense.

If you have a new blog and want to apply for AdSense, I would recommend you wait until you have at least 20 to 25 high quality posts that would impress the reviewer from Google.

It depends on the quality of your articles. As tony said, 20-25 will be a better number to apply for Adsense. I got an approved Adsense when I had 6 posts. Maintain quality and build some back links and remove site wide links. Main point here is apply with a clean and simple template. Happy blogging !

You are right and it is a bit tricky! many times, Google approves brand new blogs with a very few articles on it and many other times, applications are declined if the number of posts are too low. Typically, Google never says they are rejecting an application just because there are not enough articles. They might be looking at the writing potential of the author than how many articles are already posted.
