Google AdSense Rejects My Site

Written September 23. 2003, at 09:38 GMT.

Reason: My site has content in other languages than English. Here's the email I received:

Date: Thu, 18 Sep 2003 17:17:23 -0700
From: "Google AdSense" <adsense-support | google.com>
To: mar | anomy.net
Subject: Re: [#3921484] Google AdSense Application Status

Hello Már,

An entire site must be reviewed for participation in Google AdSense, not individual pages. Currently, we cannot selectively approve the pages on which you may run AdWords ads. As the web content on your entire site is primarily a non-English language, we are unable to approve your application to join AdSense at this time.

If you manage or own another site on which you'd like to display AdWords ads and which you think will meet our program policies ( https://www.google.com/adsense/policies ), please reply to this email and include the URL of the new website in the message. We will then reconsider your application for that particular site.

Sincerely,

The Google Team

And I was really looking forward to becoming a Google AdWhore(tm). Shucks!

    If not for the language, Google would probably have rejected your site because of the 'personal' content. Most webloggers with AdSense on their sites have aquired their account with a second, more commercial site. Once you have your account,you are allowed to put the banner on all your sites, including the ones that normally would have been rejected.

    Jeron, interesting. This policy seems kind of arbitrary.
