  2. hi Buddy
    I Have Done All These Process..
    But From Last 15 Day They Were Not Approved My Custom Domain
    bCoz They mail Me Please Implement Adds Code On My Site (www.TheGuitar.in)

    1. Have you installed any ad code from your hosted adsense into that custom domain? make sure you have done it correctly and you install a newly created ad code and your site must have impression for them to check your site.

    2. Impressions for them means? I can't understand please let me know what impression on codes means I mean when codes are pasted and not approved they are black area and one can't click on them. Please tell me dude.thanks in advance.

    3. Impression means views on your site. if you did installed your hosted adsense code on your custom domain the ads will not show until your adsense upgrade has been approved (if you did apply for upgrade on your hosted account). If you didn't do upgrade yet do it now if you wish to use your adsense into a custom domain. Take note that hosted adsense can only be used to blogspot, hubpages and youtube only.

  3. Hi,

    I am try to updating my Hosted Adsense Account, but always getting same message "your site not comply with policy", so please provide help on getting Adsense Account Hosted to Normal.

    1. You have to make sure that all of your blog post are original. 15-20 original articles with one niche have higher chance to get approved on your hosted adsense upgrade. Site with PR is a plus.

  4. Please help me I am having trouble placing ads on my website. I am using custom domain and hosting from blogger.com so I use html/JavaScript widget to place Ads code. But again if I go to adsense hosted account it keeps showing me in order to your application get review please place ads code on your custom domain, I am using. Net domain. Please help what should I do or what I am doing wrong?

    1. You didn't do wrong, if you seen that notification about get review thing that means your upgrade is not yet approved. You have to wait until they do review on your site, they will email you about the result of your hosted adsense upgrade in 1-2weeks upon the date you applied for upgrade.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. If the message still showing on your adsense dashboard stating that you should implement adcode which you already did, it only means that your requested upgrade is not yet reviewed. Wait more days.

  6. Instead of implementing ad code I did add an Adsense Gadget in my blogger. Is it a correct procedure??

    1. Yes that is okay, hope you'll get approved too. Happy Blogging!
