I recently created an AdSense account through blogger for a blog of mine and when I log into Adsense it tells me we’re working on setting you up. It allows me to place ads on my blog but they are only blank white spaces right now. How long does it usually take to get fully approved. I registered for an AdSense account after it said I was legible in the blogger control panel.

Give it time. G is "fast", but not that fast.

Is this a new account or did you already have an AdSense account? Did you add the blogger site to that account or create a new account? They check out every new site these days.

It is a new Adsense account and In blogger it told me my blog is eligible for adsense so I signed up and now when I log into the account that’s what it tells me. How long do you believe this process of approval will take?

Actual dates would help.

When did you sign up?
When did you put the ad code on your pages?

I just signed up last night and got the first approval to place ads on my blog a few hours later. How long should the entire process take for my account to be approved?

You do have content up, right?

Note: Eligible does not mean approved. That comes after the content has been vetted.

Yes, I have content up. I have been adding around one post per day and I am also getting a small amount of traffic it that is taken into consideration. But alright, thanks for letting me know. 2 days to 2 weeks sounds reasonable. Is there any reason it would take longer than that?

Ask again in two weeks. :)

Meanwhile, keep expanding your content. Cross all "t"'s and dot all "i"'s and serve the USER first! g and adsense will catch up. These days g is a little more careful in approving adsense than in the past. Time will tell.

When do you think google began getting stricter? This year or around 2015?

The MAJOR changes started late 2016-early 2017. Stronger actions seemed to happen in 2018. Sadly, there is not that much commentary here (or elsewhere) regarding the approval process and how long things take.

Okay and is this for brand new accounts looking for approval or does it go for accounts already approved just looking for site approval as mentioned earlier as well?

You can read about the experiences people are having since they started checking every domain: [webmasterworld.com...]

That is a fairly recent change and it affects existing and new accounts.

^^^^ This is the most recent commentary, but some aspects have been around for a year or more. YMMV depending on site/content, etc.

Is there a certain amount of time you should have on the site before applying or a certain amount of posts you should have before applying?

There is not a set answer for every case. To check what might possibly delay approval, read here: [webmasterworld.com...]

In a minute or two you will know what you might have missed.

@fotofruit

Adsense is currently filtering the number of new publishers/websites.
I don't recall whether it was a rumor or true, accounts with less than 100,000 unique visitors/month will not survive.
New websites: Adsense is not interested to maintain websites with 1USD/Day or so of income.
Suggestion: attract visitors first, make your site popular and after re-apply.

@Sissi

You don't quote a source for that so almost certainly it is a rumor and not a fact. Why spread statements like that? It may well send some publishers into a totally unwarranted panic.

For Adsense if the statement made in a Forum becomes a reality I would welcome it.
The filter for new websites will achieve this and preserve us from a further deflation of revenues.

I highly doubt that’s true for websites. Google has never stated whether traffic for website approval is even a factor, why would they start now with such a specific number? Traffic wouldn’t even necessarily affect your earnings, your content and the adverts that show because of it would.

And the article you listed for YouTube is true but over a year old.

Heh, heh! There is a COST to g to maintain ACCOUNTING INFO for dollar a day websites. Not that cost effective. Get rid of those (or raise the threshold to play to a higher level) and the resources required to do the work can keep up with the VOLUME that is killing their systems now.

NOTE: that is commonsense, not any statement from g or any other entity. Just ordinary economics at work.

All theoretical but those dollar sites for a lot of us have become much more than dollar sites over time. Where would the incentive for new bloggers go with such high expectations from the biggest advert company?

Indeed ... which means you have to be big enough to get their attention. :)

After all, the web is getting saturated these days, and the number of "big players" is finally large enough for g to "pick and chose" their source of income. (Remember, g is a business, and they aren't in it to be "nice".)

Shareholders what to see RESULTS.

Agreed and Google has done job of getting rid of the “typical” tech blogs and such and if they are placing them on small sites as well as all others that perform well with their niches they wouldn’t be losing any revenue as long as the sites performed well no matter the traffic, someone who has 5 or 10 sites that delivers 100k pageviews would earn the same as someone who owns one site who also delivers 100k and so would the adverts and a number such as 100k would also cause issues for those just transferring domains names over and recovering their own traffic to those new domains especially if they rely on google search amongst many other dependent variables.

The 100k visitors per month idea would be very controversial for Google and publishers all around in my opinion

I've always said that Adsense should be two-tiered, i.e. a premium platform serving premium ads to publishers with a prescribed about of traffic; and an open-slather platform serving penny-click ads to everyone else.

The one-size-fits-all system was good to begin with but now contains enormous disparities and inequalities.
