    What went wrong with the redirect? And sorry to hear about the adsense. Have you tried any of the alternatives?

    Sorry to hear that man. Keep trying. Nothing worth doing is easy. Are there any other additional as networks you'd consider using?

    For AdSense - how long are your descriptions on welcome pages?
    How does the rejection letter look like - I mean exact reason of rejection?

    I assume

    It's tough getting rejected from AdSense. There are additional networks that are out there and you could feasibly buy an AdSense account, but of course you would have to get the site approved.

    I wonder if quizzes should be ancillary to a website, at least in a beginning. There are tons of sites (the evil Buzzfeed the first that comes to mind, but there are others) that get a ton of traffic to their quizzes, but have a lot of additional content. Maybe you should trying creating really good content / articles, and then put in the quizzes after? I've had sites approved after writing a big bunch of really long articles and I don't recall ever being rejected by AdSense.

    It's just a painful lesson to have to learn.

    I don't think this is the issue here, AdSense is usually fine with the quizzes and other users reported to be approved with no issues. Just check Sporcle, thequiz, or grizzly - they all quiz-only sites.

    Try increasing to 300-500 words.

    My point still stands. Next time, create the content on the site, get approved, and add the quizzes after. Otherwise use other networks.

    I'm not sure I disagree with you, per se. Maybe those sites were grandfathered in. I just think that the chances that you get approved for AdSense are better if you have many long articles rather than just short quizzes. Why can't OP (or anyone) add in the quizzes in after? A few thousand words of text isn't a bad insurance policy, especially considering most of the traffic to the site will likely be paid for / pushed via social channels anyway. Most people might not even see the original long-form articles.

    Don't you agree?

    There is no issues with AdSense and the quizzes, but as an ad network I understand that point of longer articles, therefore longer welcome pages (first page of the quiz) is working as an article on this case. You can write an article about Jurassic Park movie or Fortnite and use it as a welcome page.

    There’s is no need to delete quizzes or getting approved with the articles first, you’re not doing anything illegal to hide, just doing what they asking you for.

    Longer welcome pages are also good for SEO purposes and can explain what the quiz is about.

    I am pretty sure we’re on the same page :)

    What i have done so far
    Have been trying to see if there a way i could monetize my site ,no success :(. It very depressing to work really hard set up something at the end hoping to get rewarded for the work and get rejected, took me quite a long time to create all the quizzes on site . All Ad networks want traffic of 10k daily visits before they would consider you. Apart from adsense that wants content .

    i feel really down , was hoping to start making few bucks from this project this month already ,to sort out some things.

    Planning on creating 20 long articles for the quiz site and try again. I don't even know if they will accept me since they didn't give reason for rejection like "little contest" or something ,probably gonna waste time again all for nothing.

    please an Appeal if anyone has an adsense approved site and wants to help me out make few bucks this month i only need 30% of revenue it will generate , all you have to do is create a quiz for me on a certain niche ,or if could do it if you want , my work is to send traffic to the quiz from FACEBOOK . i need some cash while creating Articles for my site . Please help out if you can ,thanks.

    EXPENSES = $45
    PROFIT = $0

    Don't feel down man, just write big welcome pages for each quiz like se900se suggested. Make sure to have your Policies/ToS/Contact page at the bottom. I was approved within a week with only 4-5 articles containing 500 words each so 60-80 words per each article is not enough. If it's hard for you to write that much then translate a similar article from another language and rewrite it for your site.

    Can't you just lie about how much traffic you have? Doctor a Google Analytics page or doctor a spreadsheet? Or buy some cheap traffic (without monetizing it, of course) and make it look legit that way? Then you'll show the AdNetworks you have enough visits.

    There is really no way for them to tell how much traffic you have independently that can be verified (outside of Alexa, Quantcast, etc.)

    Hey, Adsense has got really strict now-a-days. Do you have Disclaimer, Privacy policy and Terms of Service pages on your website? If you do not have them, go over to Google and search for Privacy policy generator and so on. Generate your own privacy policy, TOS and disclaimer page and add it to your website. You should also add an about us section and make sure you link to these pages from the header section. Once these pages are indexed, re-apply for Adsense. It should approve.

    Many ad networks rely on SimilarWeb data so this wouldn't work. Alexa is easy to fool and show lots of traffic without having any, but SW is not easy, but possible, though, for the price of boosting SW you can really buy real traffic.

    The best way to open a publisher account is to open an advertisers account first and then be extremely nice to your account manager mentioning you're going to spend a lot of money of buying traffic and looking to monetize with them as well.

    Don't as you're just a couple steps away from the first milestone.
    Adding text to your welcome page is less time consuming and easier than creating a whole quiz.
    As for the other ad networks - do not stop sending traffic even if you don't have ads on the site. If you can show lots of traffic in couple of weeks - you will be accepted.
