How to Not be Accepted by Google

How to not be accepted by Google Adsense for advertisements to your website.

Google’s Motto is “Don’t be Evil.” However, what if they are evil and that is just a front?  A scam to pull the wool over the eyes of the flock of people on the interwebs? I don’t know. I’m just a bit pissed that they denied me for their services, thus me thinks they be evil.

The Googs

What I do know is that this website is a hobby.  And you can easily see it too. Just look at the design. A current 4th grader could make a better presentation. But then they would not have the wonderful life experience that I have to share with you. 🙂   I also update it about it once every few months.  About as much reliability as a intercity Thai bus schedule.  But I actually have random people visit my site.  Yesterday, I had 8 people read one article on thrift store shopping in Orange County!  Let’s just say we have a niche market here.

But this being a hobby did not stop me from applying to Google for their adsense program.

Adsense is a program to place ads on websites.  Yes, those annoying ads on the side of every site I wanted to put on my own site.  Google even advertises: “Turn your passion into profit.” (Link) So I had a grand scheme to make money off my hobby.  Time to get in tune with reality! That just ain’t going to happen.

Buy Stuff

I will relay my story of attempting to sign up for a Google Adsense.  This happened half a year ago and I am finally getting around to writing about it.  I forget the actual process to apply, but I am assuming I linked my Gmail account to my website.

Immediately after I received a response which was promising:

Alas, I got a response soon after that My account does not qualify as is “does not meet our program criteria”  Fine.

Access Denied.

Is it because I use an apple computer and own an iphone?  Nah, probably because I use vulgarity and am quite spastic.  I am unprofessional.  Good to know.  Also good to know I need to step up my game to be included in the Google way of life.  But, I actually hate ads so I am quite the hypocrite to even to want to put up ads on my site.

In reality, probably better to not have ads.  And I should be thankful for Google to deny me rather than resentful.

So, from now on I am just going to do this for fun and for free.  There is Liberation in that.  Freedom!
