Adsense turned me down :(

I signed a new site up on Google Adsense, but it was turned down the next day... I looked through their terms, and all of that - but I couldn't see anything wrong with my site, other than the fact that I have NO site yet.

So heres my question (However stupid it may be): does adsense not accept sites that are not up yet? Sites that are just the cPanel default view (the folder/file view)

On another related term: How is everyone liking adsense? This is my first time using it and I'm pretty excited about it, I heard Leo on TechTV talking about how he loved it (Cat too).

Of course you have to have a site up to use ad-sense.
How else are they supposed to review your site and find that it is appropriate?

Adsense accepts websites that have content. Enough content! An empty site stands no chance to be accepted AFAIK.

Aha... I was REALLY worried they didn't like the domain name or something! (Its nothing bad... Just weird)

They don't mind applying twice, do they?

Edit: Erm... My friend and I just uploaded our site template, we made by ourselves - it has links, a paragraph or so of text and some images - but we're still working on the scripts for it... Will THAT be accepted? We want to be able to put adsense in way before we get all of the content up, so we can play around with it - see if it looks good, etc.

No. They want good content. No coming soon pages, nothing like that. They want good semi-established sites with text content. And no, they don't mind. If you actually read the rejection email, you'd notice two things.
1: They give a reason for the rejection
2: They tell you to reply if you've fixed the issue.

You need to haev a fully functional site to get anywhere...
As for AdSense, I don't like them one bit... They used to be good.. until they closed my account due to fradulent clicks which they cannot prove or justify. Even after you contact them multiple times they don't do anything about the situation and just take all the money you earned through the programme. Them being too secretive about their payouts rate and operation process really leads people into believing it is a good programme, but in reality, its not. Well, maybe it didn't work out for me; I hope it works out okay for you once you get your site up and running...

The reason they want a content -up site is so you don't post some fragmented "constuction sign" then next thing they know is you have some blatant, illegal site that has nothing to do with what you "intended" to have up!

Nothing stops you from doing a fake site to get accepted, then putting the real illegal content with the ads.

does Adsense cost to have on your site or is this where the site
owner gets paid per clicks from their site?

How much can you make with Adsense?

d00t, this is where the site owner is paid per click via the google ads displayed on your website.

As for how much people make... we cannot discuss this as per Google's TOS.

If you still can't find it, read the Program Policies page (linked from and you'll find the clause that you must submit a launched site. No parked pages or construction pages allowed.

Also, they do review sites showing adsense code regularly, and will catch up with you eventually if you start showing it on an unsuitable site.

It's Pay Per Click (PPC) The minimun click is restricted to $0.05 via the google adwords program. Google takes $0.03 of that leaving you a minimum of $0.02 per click. Now thats the DEAD minimum you will recieve for a logged paid click. Prices per click can go as high as people are willing to pay. The only limit on what you can make is 30% (estimate) of what is put into the adwords program.
