    I have created a new site and it has approx 20 pages. The content is unique on that and also there is no affiliate link on the website. I applied for adsense and got the following reply:

    ==================================
    We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.

    Issues:
    Site does not comply with Google policies
    ---------------------

    Further detail:
    Site does not comply with Google policies: We're unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies (http://support.google.com/adsense/b...google.com/adsense/bin/topic.py?topic=1271507) or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines (http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769). It's our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this criteria.

    Tips:
    Here are some recommendations to help you improve the user experience on your site and comply with AdSense criteria:
    - It's important for sites displaying Google ads to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
    - Don't place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
    - Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they're seeking.

    ==================================

    What can be wrong in a brand new site with unique content n excellent design? Any tips for debugging the website? The structured data is fine and there is no crawl errors.

    The content is unique, but is it readable? Does the content provide anything useful? Do you have any images or anything, or is it a wall of text?

    I would check your website thoroughly for any mistakes even a tiny one can get you rejected.

    It is about various softwares available for a particular purpose.

    The language is very simple and very readable. Each article has 1 related image. The content is organized in lists, paragraphs and tables.

    Any more tips pls?

    Depending on the niche they just may not accept it.

    I had to do 3 sites before I was accepted.

    If you do not have a privacy policy, about us page, contact us page, and a disclaimer/TOS (if there are affiliate links) they will likely not approve the site.

    You need all the burocratic pages.

    Also, if your page is about software and the copy is just meant to sell the software then it's going to send them a bad signal. For example, if each post is about one program and no in-depth stuff is presented about those programs in separate posts, it just looks like a spun catalogue. JM2C

    I applied today again. And got the same apply. But, I got the reply within 5 mins of my application. Isn't that too fast. Added disclaimer etc pages too in site.

    Now the site has 30 pages of content. It is responsive n passes W3 HTML validation. The performance score in PageInsight is 87/100.

    The content is copyscape passed. Home page content is from a native writer from BHW.

    But, still rejection?

    Does the site age matters in my case?

    In my opinion it is not a technical issue but it is a matter of the quality of the content.

    Try to look at it from a reader point of view... is there any value for the reader?

    The fact that you are concentrating on copyscape, shows that you are not focused on the reader but on technical loopholes.

    I never got all the fuss about adsense approval. Make a blogger with 2-3 pages of unique random content with a privacy policy page and apply the same day. It's how I got mine.

    Techxan gave you some great advice, in fact you won't get approved without it. I got approved the first time with a TOS and Privacy Policy, address, phone (with contact numbers) and business hours on my site. Once I got approved I removed the phone, address and hours.

    Just a few suggestions for you, best of luck!
