Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
So, are there some small-site AdSense success stories? What does it take to get accepted? (Of course, Google didn't reply so far to me...) How many visitors to get some money out of it?
[On a related note, my Google blog was also rejected from Google news... and I expected that even more.]
I wonder if I should try to apply for my other sites. They're all one-person driven hobby sites, yet have visitors (not into the 50,000 though), and are giving away software, tutorials, etc., 4,000 pages all in all indexed by Google.
They sound like good bets. It takes only a couple of minutes to apply, so why wait?
