Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
So far, I have only one website. It's a Wordpress blog I created a few weeks ago and have only posted to it twice (but will now be posting weekly). Should I wait until the blog is more established?
I also heard you can apply to Adsense when you create a new Blogger account. That would imply that your blog is brand new... so it won't have much, if any, content. Does it really make a difference how or when you apply? Also, since these sites will be brand new, they likely won't be getting a lot of traffic for a while...
Speaking of which... if I could ask a second question... do you get penalized for low traffic or low CTR's?

Based on this, would it be advisable to just set up a new blogger account and apply for Adsense at the same time? I have enough niche articles for about 25 posts (from PLR) that I could put up on a Blogger account so at there is a fair bit of useful information, even thought there won't be much traffic.
I really wanted to replace those with real Adsense ads... It would just make the blog look better...
If Google is waiting until sites are at least 6 months old, I have another 5 months to wait. It will take that long until my site it out of the Google Sandbox and actually gets indexed. So it probably won't get much traffic until then anyways.
Just wondering... once you have an Adsense account, you can put up Adsense on "any" site, right? (as long as it doesn't violate the TOS, like gambling sites, etc). So, it's just getting approved for your first site that's the barrier then?
I thought I read somewhere that adsense isnt accepting new websites until they are at least 6 months old.Not true.
I personally have put Google ads on my new websites as an incentive to develop the site faster cause as Martinibuster mentioned sites with no content but filled with ads do not look good.
However, I have noticed new sites with NO ads have a higher chance of getting back links so you may want to consider that.
Established, or even newly accepted, publishers can put their code on as many sites as they like.
The only thing that worries me is that I used PLR articles. Granted, they're not very widely circulated. In fact, I was not able to find any of them on other websites, but I'm sure if I looked hard enough I might. But I rewrote them, used my own graphics (not theirs) and formatted them much nicer. Do you think that would be OK, or should I just write up my own articles and start a new blog before applying to Adsense?
And I'd avoid PLR articles. Even if you can't find them, they could still be out there. Better to write yourself or hire a cheap writer for some original content.
