How To Get Approved For BuySellAds?

Hi friends!! I'm very excited to know that my blog "Everything About Blogging | Free Premium Blogger Templates" got approved by BuySellAds. I opened my inbox today and found a mail stating that "Your Site Is Approved On BuySellAds". It's a Diwali surprise for me. To all those who do not know about BuySellAds, it is basically an Ad Agency that supports direct advertising but they accept only quality sites. So, what do I mean by quality sites?
buysellads
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS (as mentioned on BuySellAds):
  • Greater than 100K impressions per month (for new sites, if you (or your team) have a history of creating really nice websites we will accept you)
  • Your website must be live, finished, and have fresh content.
  • Your website must contain custom domain (eg. www.abc.com), we don't accept sub domains (eg. www.abc.blogspot.com)
  • No porn, anything illegal, or containing even remotely "questionable" content.
  • If you have a ton of untargeted ads on your site already, we're not going to approve you.
  • Getting denied does not mean that we will not approve you at a future date.
The most important points to consider in the criteria listed are the second and the last point. The first one is a keyhole to the newbies and the last one gives you space to submit your site again and again. Do you think I got my site approved on the first attempt? Definitely not!!!  I got it approved at the fifth attempt. So, what do they expect from you, in other words, what should your blog/site possess to get approved by BuySellAds?

As far as I know, you need to maintain a site design that is simple, professional and clean. If you mess up with the widgets and alignment, I'm sure they will not approve you. Make sure that you get your Alexa Rank below 200K, less than 100K would definitely help (Learn more about increasing your Alexa Rank here - 5 Methods To Increase Your Alexa Rank). The next important criteria is that you need to have enough Yahoo! Inbound Links (or) Google PR which is measure of Google backlinks (Learn more about increasing backlinks here - How To Increase Backlinks To My Blog?). 

You should also make sure that your site has got a compete rank(optional). The last but not the least, you should have a minimum of  10,000 pageviews to get the approval. This has become mandatory for new sites because they ask you to add them as a temporary user to access your Google Analytics account and they personally verify whether you satisfy their minimum requirements or not.

I cannot guarantee that your site will be accepted if you satisfy the above mentioned conditions. How ever, I'm pretty sure your blog/site should possess the above criteria. In short, the conditions are necessary but not sufficient. However, if you wish to advertise on my site, then visit the following page for more details - Details About Premium Blogger Templates.

Well done on getting accepted !

One point you left out is they are not big fans of blogspot sub domains.Having a custom domain shows you are commited to keeping a long term blog.If you are using a Blogger sub-domain you will need to have a very high hit count, PR etc...

@Anup: Yeah!! I know that Anup!! May be you need to wait for little more days. You gotta better Alexa Rank too!! So, just wait! Advertisers should find you soon!!!

Does BSA tell you how much you can charge for each Ad slot?

I see your Ad slot for the 125x125 in the right sidebar is $10 per month.

Can you make that for example $20 per month, If you wanted to?

Thanks,

REPLY
Mukund said on November 6, 2010 at 11:17 PM :

@Jim: Yeah Jim!! We can change the price for the ad slots! You decide the prices for each slot. Thanks for the comment by the way!! I hope you enjoy the other updates on my blog as well!!

@Mukund

Uhh.. May be soon with later days.. I am just waiting for PR update for more great result :)

One thing is, BSA Marketplace Manager, Mr. Sergiu Poenaru commented on that post which I have written when I got approved by BSA considering: I don't agree with "Keep re-submitting".

You can see his full comment here: HackTutors BSA

Mukund said on November 7, 2010 at 2:52 PM :

@Anup: Yeah!! I know that!! I mean to say that resubmit your blogs again and again as and when your traffic stats are increasing. If your traffic is at the same level and you keep trying, it's a waste of time. I checked out the comment Anup. He had replied to me via email, not once or twice, but more than 10 times:)

BuySellAds is as good as any other service like Puxee. But I see it doesnt approve for *.in, too bad! And by the way I guess you know that Unless someones buy's your ad slot, then only you would make money. And visitors wont choose unless you have a thesis theme and hosted on Wordpress. Agree?

REPLY
Mukund said on June 12, 2011 at 11:28 PM :

@SurajKV: No way! If that was the case, then we wouldn't have made money! We did sell few of our ad spots a couple of months before. So, it's about the traffic that you receive. Thanks for your comment Suraj! Would love to see your comments on my blog!

Thanx For The Tips Mukund.
But My Question Is, BSA Approve Hacking Sites?
I Tried To Apply For My Site www.MaherHackers.com But It Always Declined.

REPLY
Mukund said on July 6, 2011 at 11:39 AM :

@V3King: I guess they don't approve sites related to hacking. If it's related to technology/web geeks, they would but a purely hacking site will not be approved!
