There are a lot of things that is to be consider before you apply for AdSense. I will give you what is required before we apply to AdSense as my personal experience and may not be applicable for you all so please use this article as reference not as a method.
Things that are required for applying AdSense:
Hosting and Domain:
Your domain should be eligible for AdSense because Google does not supports many domain extensions for its program. We recommend you to use .com extension because it is world widely supported and accepted by AdSense. In terms of hosting you hosting should be uptime and should have acceptable load time for the number of users visiting your website. If you are from Nepal I am currently using hosting from ehostingserver which provides budget hosting for starters.
Since we are taking about AdSense for blogs and website platform is very important. In the past AdSense used to give approval to most of the blogger users but now a days the trend is changing and it is prioritizing WordPress users. Now a days WordPress hosted sites are ranking top on search engine and are gaining more visitors. So, we suggest you to go with WordPress but it is your own choice which framework you want to go with.
Theme and Design:
Theme and Design used by your site should be AdSense friendly and responsive. It should support each device without any disturbance for users. User experience is very crucial. Themes should support various user friendly ads positioning. User interface have to be clear and easy to use.
Your site should have all required fundamental pages which contains information about your site. About us is a page which contains info about your site and the content creators. Contact is a page which includes forms and contacting information. Your site should contain terms and condition page along with sitemap.
The main part among all is your content. It should be original and creative as well as it should fall under accepted criteria. You should have minimum of 20-25 content. Each of them should be in more than 1000 words in words count and should be informative. It is not necessary for it to be exactly 1000 it can be more or less but your content should be quality content. Write contents on more than 6 categories so that variety of information can be found in your site.
Images used should not be copyrighted and avoid using images from online. Create images by yourself for your site.
Generally it does not affect but I prefer not to use third party ad network in your site. Avoid it as much as possible because the things shown in that ads network may go against Google AdSense policy.
Do not use unwanted widgets and keep your site clean. Removing unwanted widgets makes blog load faster and it also improves seo of site.
