    Hi everyone!

    I am just about to get into AdSense.
    I've ordered my authority website from one of the 5* members on BHW - I got around 25 posts and my website about 2 weeks old (my domain is more then 1 y/o). Website is about makeup, all content unique, SEO optimized and I will be growing it of course, but I have some questions and I need an advice from those who already experienced with adsense.

    My website in not on Google yet (I have submitted it also via Webmaster Tools and it shows 25 indexed pages, but I can see it only if I search for site:mydomain) - how long does it usually take to get in search?
    Is there a way to get website faster in Google search (SEO packages)?
    How long should I wait before applying for Adsense so I won't be declined because website is young?
    How many posts should I make per months or it doesn't really matter?
    Should the website have some amount of visitors coming everyday? If so how many? If I'm not in search and have only occasional visitors for now - what if I buy traffic ?(here on forum some member sell 'adsense positive traffic')

    Also: may I encourage my visitors to click on ads? For example asking to support the source by clicking on ads or this can block my account?

    All these questions are better to be asked to the one who sold you the authority website package.

    Give it 3 months before worrying. At first you won't rank for difficult keywords, but you should rank for your easy kw's at first, like your site's name, for example. After you're stable with the easy kw's, then you'll start to work on harder kw's.

    Give it 3 to 6 months and get some legitimate traffic before applying for adsense. No you should not call users to click on your ads, that'll ban you instantly.

    I asked here because I want to get different opinions from those who already know a lot. If there's nothing useful you'd like to comment - why bother to comment? :)

    Thanks for reply!

    I am planning to get some legitimate traffic from those sources who I am going to partner with as well as maybe I will do AdWords - still no point to apply earlier?

    At first I targeted phrase that consist of 4 words - it has low competition. My domain is more like brand name rather then directly related to the keyword.

    Don't do this and don't click on your own ads.

    You should check if the brand name is trademarked. If so they can demand to hand over the domain name.

    I heard horror stories about Google banning so many accounts once they reach a certain earning amount. Always stayed away from it.

    01. Buying traffic for AdSense sites is risky thing. That could always get your account banned whatever the sellers tell you. I would stick with search engine and social traffic.

    02. Never encourage visitors to click ads in anyway. Another one way ticket to ban wagon. Read their TOS several times and find what they don't like also read stories of those who are banned. You might learn a thing or 2 even thought my claim they were just banned by AdSense for no reason.

    03. If your content is more than week old and still not in SERP then you need to recheck and redo all content. Pages usually get ranked for something within 3-4 days. Check with Google webmaster tool. If it show your site rank for various keywords but no clicks again same story.

    04. Year old domain with 25 posts is enough to signup with AdSense. Make sure to show you keep adding posts like at least one post a month. AdSense guys getting picky these days.

    05. Trademarks has nothing to do with SEO but it can get you into plenty of trouble in many ways. For AdSense TOS says you can't use Trademark or copyrighted stuff in your pages if you use AdSense. Also if you start ranking your site for every big keyword which that trademark owner also complete he/she could request you handover the domain.

    06. It seems Google AdSense usually do an audit about your traffic and contact details before sending the first payment. If they find something wrong like bad quality traffic, TOS breakings or if they find you had been banned from AdSense before that you get kicked out again. Minus your payment in most cases.

    Thanks for your reply!
    Can you please clarify point #3
    My webmaster tool shows that I had some impressions on my main 4 keyword phrases (which is great), but clicks (i guess its fine for now, website live just for 10 days) - when I try to search the same keywords - I never see my site on first ten pages - is there something wrong or google bot just need to take more time to index my site (weeks-months)?

    5 - let's forget about trademarks - it has nothing to do with SEO and that's no point to discuss it.

    6. What can be considered a bad quality traffic? Example: I write about makeup and I've partnered with a company that produces makeup products - they put my link/picture/post on their website - can this do any harm to me?

    Whatever else you do, don't make the clicks look obvious... Google knows of all the tricks in the book!

    P.S.:

    Read this article, and then go from there (do more research):

    My advice on adsense:

    Use original content, create value to your visitor, and build email list, so your visitor will go back again and again to your website

    Make sure the domain name that you've bought ISN'T banned by Google Adsense in the past. And you cannot encourage visitors to click your Adsense!

    Because nobody will be able to offer you proper answers, you could've at least named the service you used so we can get an idea of what has already been done.

    THere could be so many reasons for not indexing, starting from having a penalised domain, or having over optimized content (this will throw you out of the serps).
    How long should you wait before applying to adsense? ... If you bothered to read around, there's no exact date. People have been accepted with 1 month old websites and others have been rejected with 6 months old websites. Why? Ask google (most likely poor quality or they didn't have the required pages such as contact, privacy policy, ToS, etc).

    All your questions will have no exact answer, how are we supposed to know whether your website should have or not visitors and how many? Does in rank in other search engines? If so, then yes, you should have traffic. If no, then where do you expect traffic to come from?

    May I encourage visitors to click on ads? Yes you may, you may as well send google a message asking them to ban you.

    You asked my why I posted here, but the real question is, why did you post this thread when there's no exact answer and most questions have already been answered dozens of times (in particular cases, obviously).
