    Assuming you have been rejected:

    "Why would an application be rejected?

    An application will be rejected if you:

    Fail to provide a website or blog URL on your application. We do not currently accept social profiles for applications.
    Provide a URL to a website that is still under construction.
    Are an app developer and fail to provide a link to your app on the App Store or to your company's website.
    If your application is declined, you can reapply to the program once you have an appropriate URL.

    Reasons for a rejected application may include, but are not limited to, a website or content that:

    Infringes Apple or third-party trademark rights.
    Contains sexually explicit material.
    Contains hate, violence or offensive content.
    Promotes discrimination.
    Promotes illegal activities or otherwise violates any applicable laws.
    Appropriates text or images from Apple's websites or stores.
    Fails to clearly state an online privacy policy to visitors.
    Uses misleading or fraudulent means to prompt clicks.
    Includes an Apple trademark in your domain name.
    Includes other inappropriate elements. What is deemed inappropriate is at Apple's sole discretion.
    If you think your application has been denied in error, reach out to us at our Affiliate Helpdesk and provide your name or company name, account username, email and the date of your application."

    I just applied myself, gonna see what happens. Can you PM me your site, I may be able to help if you've been rejected. I know It's not traffic based though.

    Thanks sgudav. Well, I have a domain and I wish to build a site.
    I just want to know beforehand what kind of sites get approved, so that I can build such site before applying to iTunes.

    Ah, well yeah, from what I gather, the main thing is to make sure the site is finished. And nothing illegal or that can be seen as making Apple look bad in any way. I don't think mine will get in, mine is a bit like beemp3, so um yeah, no chance.
    Still, never know, gotta be some that slip through the net!
