    You need more substance. A half dozen of ezinearticles won't get accepted into their program and even if you had an Adsense account you wouldn't make any money.

    The content that is there now is too generic and superficial to be a traffic draw.

    What is your traffic like?

    If your site is rejected with this (site does not comply with Google policies) message means, then your site does not fulfill the Google AdSense criteria.

    This is because their goal is to provide advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow them to serve well-targeted ads to users.

    There are lots of guidelines to follow before applying for the AdSense application. Here is a list of few,

    Your Blog’s structure is quite important. Use a lighter template or theme which has well-structured navigation menus.
    Make sure your blog receives a good amount of traffic and as well as good traffic sources.
    Ensure that your blog has content that must be written in a language that AdSense supports and also free from copyright infringements.
    Concentrate on the Niche of your blog.
    You can also get approval without adding a privacy policy page. But, it is good to add a privacy policy page before applying AdSense.
    Make sure that all links that are on your website are authentic and doesn’t send you to illegal sites.

    Your site is filled with copied content which in itself would not get approval. Nice design but content is not unique so even if you got approved for Adsense your site would get Panda penalised pretty quickly. Quiet shocked that this kind of site is been built in 2017, let alone even 2010!

    Yeah i fucked up lol. I bought a blog guide and it said to use a niche, but i wanted to write about something that i enjoyed writing about. I think im going to just sell this site on flippa for like $100. I put A LOT of time like 50+ hours on this site and invested like $60 all for nothing. I get about 20-50 organic views a day. then like 100-200 from unorganic.

    @TheJohnDon it means you're not following the policies listed here: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/48182. I think @drogon has it spot on - you're likely getting caught out by duplicate content, but check the rest of the policies just to make sure.

    @keywordspot - you've given a list of criteria - are these taken directly from a Google help page of some form, or just what you would suggest? I'm pretty sure your site can look pretty awful or be poor structure wise, and still be accepted and you certainly don't need vast amounts of traffic to be accepted.

    Agreed, you need more substance. Also get some people to comment on articles. Zero comments make it hard to tell if the site was built 5 minutes ago or months ago, and comments are a way of making your users more *sticky*

    Even eaten a hot wing with wonderfully crisped skin and that heat that starts in your belly and builds to a little brow sweat? Now boil a chicken thigh, no seasoning, nothing, just boiled chicken... Sure they are both chicken, but one leaves you feeling happy and fulfilled, while the other just leaves you wanting ANYTHING else.
    Using generic copied content is like plain boiled chicken, it doesn't entice me, it leaves me feeling underwhelmed, I am not going to tell anyone about it, I may warn others to not do it if they ask about it.
    Now the perfect hot wing(solid content, great titles, strong visuals, engaging media), I am posting about on social media, I am telling my friends about, I am coming back for more, I am writing a blog post about it.

    From the first view I would suggest using images of a higher quality, make better structure, change theme.
    I did not check articles for quality or if they are original, this might be an issue as well.

    Apart from not so unique content your site doesn't have a privacy policy page or contact page either.

    You consider investing 50 hours and 60 bucks into a site as "a lot of time"? What are you going to say when you spend a year and $10k on a project that doesn't turn out as you have planned?

    Learn from your mistakes and move on. Few days of work and less than $100 put into a site is nothing to stress about.

    For pillar and review posts, I order from multiple content writers here, probably used 5 different ones here on BHW and spend $1,000+ for it all.
    Also for filler content, I spin PLR stuff and combine them into large posts.

    Plagiarized Content - many accounts are getting banned because of this reason and u r waiting for approval with unoriginal content.

    U need to include Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions and Contact Form.

    New Theme would not make difference in this case.

    Read their policies and apply. Your site must be some 3-6 months old with regular updates or else you can buy adsense accounts from buy/sell section
