    So following is my site
    techguru3d dooot coooooom ( replace appropriate text)
    It's still under construction. I am not able to find a proper tagline for the blog. Currently it's set to Best Technology Blog

    Plus is there anything else that you want to recommend regarding site's design, content or anything. Much appreciated :)

    And by this, hopefully I will start my venture here on Black Hat and will try my best to be come a valuable part of this forum :)

    Go with something simple. the tag line wont make or break your site. try something like "where the tech gurus hangout". Incorporate the site name into it somehow.

    My suggestion: play on the '3D' part of the name - "Tech from every perspective."

    Only on my iPhone at the moment but the mobile version of the site definitely looks good.

    Depends on what your site is really about. The tag line should sum up your ethos.

    Well the site is obviously related to tech. However, on some friend's suggestions, I have focusing more on mobile tech and less or PC tech. I am good at writing and I have been writing for tech blogs from a long time. So I am convenient in writing for everything. But the final categories are the ones that you can see on the site.

    Well the tagline that I had in mind initially was " Where The Guru Meets You". But "Tech from every perspective" is good as well

    More questions besides making an Additional THREAD
    1 - Me and my partner in website(a friend of mine) were having this conversation where he said that do not put Google Ads on your new website till its 1 month old. I said that what is the logic behind this and he said some stuff that I literally disagreed. He showed me few sites as an example and all of them were like 1-2 months old and had no Ads at all. So I am confused if this really means something or not. (REMEMBER: I have my adsense account since 2010 which I will be using)
    2 - Which is the best WP Pluggin for Gallery of Images (just like at TheVerge and Cnet) and Tables. I need tables plugin to show the specs of hardware in a well formatted way.

    I'd had a couple of beers when I made the tagline suggestion although having slept on it, I still quite like it :D But yeah, completely up to you.

    As for the other questions:

    1. Rather than looking at it in terms of waiting x amount of time, look at your site as if you were applying to AdSense for the first time. If you have content, which you do, together with no holding pages, lorem ipsum text and the like then you're good to go. Make sure you have a privacy policy somewhere too if you don't already. If everything looks in place and it would pass a manual check, then it doesn't matter how old the site is. I started a new site four days ago and I've had my ads running from the second day and have done the same numerous times in the past.

    2. Definitely not an expert on image galleries as if I use them they're generally part of the theme so I'll leave that for someone else to answer. As for tables, I use TablePress. It's a free plugin and while not the prettiest tables in the world, it adapts well and allows searching, sorting, etc and may be up to the job. You can also import CSV files which comes in handy on bigger jobs.

    Actually I had it in mind to mention but forgot to add, that I have my Adsense account approved in 2010 when I made my first ever site (although a fail projecT). So I intend to use the same account on this site too.
    I have the Privacy Policy Page and other Disclaimer pages etc. Have a thorough look at my site to see if its complete or still needs few things. Then I will see few other replies from people and then put the adsense within next few days.

    Thanks

    Yep, understood. I actually wrote that in the context of having an existing AdSense account rather than applying for one. My account is a little older but generally I look at any new site and think to myself "if I was applying to AdSense for the first time with this site, would they approve it?" So all the basics really - unique, worthwhile content, privacy policy, contact info, etc.

    I've just had a proper look at the site and ran it through Copyscape and all seems fine to me. I personally would be comfortable dropping ads on there now regardless of the site's age - but like you say, its always worth seeing what others have to say :)

    Poeple can run CopyScape ALLLL DAAYYY LONGGGGG :D (no offence)
    The site is a pure image of what I love to write and love to do as well. So no need to worry about the copyscape and other stuff. Instead of this, I am more worried about my content being copied by others. And for that I am already gaining information regarding DMCA and stuff

    No offence taken - I know what you mean but if someone from Google was checking your content, they have much better tools than you or I for detecting copies, it was just a quick and easy way to see whether the content was original - certainly wasn't implying that is wasn't, it's just that if it was indeed copied and then I said AdSense would be fine on there then I'd be lying!

    Call the tag line:
    This site is related to tech
    :)
    No seriously, I know the sites about tech, but is it review site, knowledge base, news?
    Those things should determine your tag line.

    I like top tech talk

    I just gone through your website, Although it looks well with full of contents, But the domain age was just "0 months, 8 days"..

    I'd like you to follow the Adsense guidelines before stepping in.. All the BEST for your success.


    P.S : If one who succeed in Google ad-sense must have failed at least 1 - 2 times. I can say this, bcoz am also "one among them" :) So never give up until you succeed.

    Well my friend said that since the site is quite new and he and I will be visiting it a lot to make changing and stuff, it means that many of our views will be counted as fake by google if we put ads too soon and it can, in the end, and in worst case scenario, result in account ban. So I will wait like a month till i get few visitors then will put up ads.

    Thanks for the heads up :) . I am thinking of getting like 15-20 posts in a couple of days and then start publishing my site everywhere and put ads as well. Still my friend disagrees with me :)
