Ever heard of Google Adsense trial accounts? No chance! They don’t exist till date. But this is what I suggested Google Adsense team when they asked me to fill a survey for them. Indian Adsense publishers were invited for the survey and the prize is Apple iPod Touch. Details here. Entry only through invitation.
As I guess most of you have submitted your valuable opinions and suggestions, I would like to share what I suggested them and would like the feedback from you readers as this can influence Google’s Adsense team in some way and favoring thousands of Adsense aspiring webmasters and bloggers.
Adsense is an unmatched industry leader in online advertising and every budding webmaster / blogger / internet marketer wants to be an Adsense publisher, but getting an Adsense account these days is a very difficult task. I see many of my online friends and readers who run a successful blog are still waiting for an AS account.
Disadvantages of no Adsense account for budding webmasters:
- Publisher may lose interest in content generation – growth of an aspiring person is affected.
- He/She may join some unethical ad networks and finally comes into conclusion that all ad networks (including Adsense) are fraud. This is the current state of survey sites – though there are good survey earning opportunities, users always try to keep away from them.
- As account applications get rejected for NO REASON, the real address of the publisher gets blocked. They can’t change their home just to get a new address for Adsense account. Same with phone number, website etc.
- As blogging is a growing career option, it gets tough to choose blogging as profession if they don’t have an Adsense account. Most of the content / news websites depend mainly on Adsense for revenues.
- Anyone can lose patience for resubmitting the same application form again and again for more than 15 times. Result of this can give raise to ad networks which don’t have a sole existence, but serve Adsense ads to fill their ad inventory. The publisher who has to get the entire revenue will start getting a small percentage of what he exactly earns. I am sure Google cannot be happy with this
The above are the reasons I could think while writing the post. The solution is ADSENSE TRIAL ACCOUNT. Though they have not assigned me a job of designing such a system, I wish such trial accounts come true in short future.
Google Adsense Trial Accounts
- These accounts are short lived Adsense accounts of a test span of say 7-15 days.
- Users can directly sign up for an account and get complete access instantly.
- Ads are served as normal, but not paid. Hope everyone is happy to run Adsense ads for free if they can get an approved Adsense account.
- Complete statistics like impressions, clicks, CTR, eCPM and earnings (eCPM and earnings are those they could get if it were an approved account, right now, they are just displayed, but not paid).
- After the trial period is over, users get notification through mail / Adsense reports page if their account is approved or not.
- No need to change tags after approval, but if rejected, you are welcome to remove the tags.
What Google do behind the scene?
Algorithm + bots decide if an account needs to be approved. Bots can identify whether the content is suitable or inappropriate according to Adsense policies. Google in the mean time gets complete details about site traffic, demography, user behavior and other required stats which influence account approval process. Only in few particular cases, a staff review can be expected.
Your suggestions / views / ideas:
Though I don’t bother about number of comments I get on any post, I request every reader to post a comment below sharing your views on such Adsense Trial accounts. If the response is impressive, there may be chances that Google can implement this in later stages.
Note to readers: It takes some more time for me to return to normal tone of blogging as there is a major shift in my personal and professional life at this time. Meanwhile check out my new website Deadly Tips where you can share your tips which rolls out of your blog niche and get a link back
