It meaniless telling you that AdSense is one of the best and reliable advertising network all over the world and most bloggers both existing and fresher's will love to use it as their main monetization if they want to use display adverts.
So being the best, getting approval now in this era as been a bit challenging to most bloggers who actually do not understood AdSense policy and because of that they suffer the consequences through rejection or disapproved messages.

Note: AdSense policy is one of the thing you as a blogger need to be conversant with before you could secured approval from them.
Truth be told, i also suffer the consequences of my action because i got rejected 4 times before getting the approval on the fifth time and before the approval of my blog which is the fourth disapproved message "low value content" i got some ideas so i decided to come up with today's article explaining the steps i took in fixing it but, before then let me quickly summarize what AdSense policy is:

According to AdSense policy, for a blog to be approved it as to meet all of their criteria which is:

  • Contents needs to be original, unique, fresh and don't write or host any illegal activities such as (hacking, smoking, dangerous.  etc)
  • Important pages such as (about us, contact, privacy, disclaimer) must be present on your blog
  • Choose a well looking template and your blog should be easy to navigate through.
  • You must have access to your website source code to add verification code
Now let me walk us through the steps i used in fixing "low value content adsense" disapproval.

Side note: No one including me understand how Google AdSense select blogs to be approved but we can always learn from people experience and this article does not only solve "low value content" it solves most disapproval messages.
 

What is low value content?

Low value contents are articles on a blog that does not make much meaning, or of no value to blog readers and Google. As we all know those behind AdSense site approval are also our blog-readers and if we can not convinced or satisfied them in all areas, then our blog will be disapproved.

Here is how to fix low value content in adsense:
  1. Make sure your google search console is in order.
  2. Make your template easy for navigation
  3. Add more fresh posts
  4. Arrange your articles using label or category
  5. Add images that are uniquely edited
  6. Have little traffics coming into your blog

 

Low value content adsense fix  

1). Google search console: 

Many bloggers don't know that submitting a sitemap in Google search console is a criteria towards AdSense approval. let me explain my experience; when i create my blog i successfully submitted the sitemap in Google search console but i noticed something, each time i post a new article on my blog, which supposed to automatically increase after 24--48 hours in the sitemap i submitted, it wasn't updating so i knew something is wrong with the settings. i deleted it and i used online sitemap generator to create another one and i submitted it on google search console and at the same time updated it on my blogspot "settings" in custom robots. then i give it 24 --- 48 hours and login to my Google search console dashboard, boom it started increasing. so in nutshell before applying for AdSense make sure you have submitted your sitemap in the right way.
 
Is another thing AdSense consider before approving a site, i came to discovered that on my own when i was applying the fourth time that my template is not that good for AdSense though i did not change it but i rebranded it because i know my way around coding.
here is what i did:
The template does not came with "homepage posts snippets" also known as little description under a post title, so i edited my blog template and include it. After that i categorize my posts into labels for easy navigation and i also create a sitemap page where users can view everything i have posted from the beginning of my blog till date.

So if you do not have knowledge about coding kindly change your template to a cool, pleasant and unique template, i suggest you use "news" or "magazine" template and make sure your audience can easily see what they are looking for.


3). Add more posts: 

Each time you apply for AdSense always cultivate an habit of having 4 to 5 posts extra on ground as this will not frustrate you when you receive rejection message. like me after i got rejected on the fourth time i publish 13 posts, 3 daily for four days and on the fifth day i publish an article in the morning and waited for 12 hours before applying for AdSense.

Note: the number of posts does not matters nor the length of the article but always make sure you wrote something meaningful, unique and at least not less than 400 --- 500 words in each articles.

The unique articles am taking about here is not really what some bloggers interpret, like posting something new that as never been seen on search engine before, well it is possible but my take here is write from your experience, what you see around, what you feel and others can't feel and make sure you make enough research about the topic you want to cover before writing your article.
In addition, you can use online websites to get contents ideas on fresh topics in your niche:
      Contents ideas generator
      Google question hub
      Answerthepublic


4). Arrange your articles: 

A lot of bloggers don't arrange their articles, even me too don't know arrangement matters for AdSense approval until i noticed it on recently approved blogs so i decided to implement it on my blog.
here are the arrangement am taking about:
use the default numbering or bullets on your CMS platform e.g (WordPress or blogspot).
use paragraph where it is needed.
subheading and minor heading should comes after the title heading if there is a need for it.


5). Add images:

Images on blog does not only beautify, it bring traffics to a blog if it is used properly with correct alt tag and along side it necessary for AdSense approval, and don't use copyright images from search engine, social media or from someone else blog.

you can download your images or pictures from pixabay, and make sure you modify the image with at least a watermark or better still edit it and write your blog post title on it.


6). Last but not the least have few people visiting your site:

This i don't know if AdSense consider traffics but make sure before applying you have people visiting your site daily, like mine i share my posts on social media and i was receiving few traffics from search in every two or three days.

Conclusion

Don't be in haste to resubmit your blog each time you are disapproved, always check your blog again and again until you see nothing wrong with your site before applying. 
Also, like i said earlier post more articles about 4-5 before resubmitting your blog URL for review.
