How to Get BuySellAds Approval for Your Website

BuySellads is a marketplace to sell direct ads. Few days back I have added my review about BuySellAds and I think it’s better to add another post in the series for the blogger who wants to start with Buysellads.

BuySellAds Approval

For those who are new to buysellads, Buysellads sell your advertisement spot to advertiser in the niche. Though there are few catch you need to know before you apply for buysellads.

These are the reasons why Buysellads will reject your blog :

  • We are currently focused on the tech / web design / development / freelancer niche. While we do occasionally accept sites outside of this niche, you may be denied if you are not in this niche.
  • 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.
  • No porn or anything illegal or containing even remotely “questionable” content.
  • Site must be in English (sorry, we’re just not able to provide support in other languages right now).
  • If you have a ton of untargeted ads on your site already, we’re not going to approve you (you know who you are).
  • If you do not have your own domain (i.e. you have a * url) we will not approve you.
  • Getting denied does not mean that we will not approve you at a future date.
  • Last, but not least: we’re not trying to be snobby, but we aim to keep the quality of the network high, and if we feel that your site impeedes on the perception of the network we will not approve you.

Why buysellads will approve your blog?

  • Blog Design : Neat and clean blog layout
  • Daily updated blog
  • Niche : Technology, Twitter, Web designer, Development, WordPress, Freelancer Niche, Web2.0
  • No BlogSpot blogs : If you are a blogspot users, Sorry no luck for you. You should try considering our BlogSpot to WordPress service or get a BlogSpot custom domain.

So in case if you are missing anything,   there is always time and scope of improvement. The most important thing is professional look of your blog, if you blog has ads and they are cluttered here and there, chances are very low that buysellads will approve your blog. Buysellads is growing everyday and it’s   a good idea to be a part of their publisher team.

You can see an example of publisher page in below screenshot:

    The Buysellads was live and woked for 2 years, but my site was down for a week when my site got delisted. I currently have the account but can get my same site with same traffic approved back as by now the criteria for approval has had 100K traffic.
    This is unfair in part of old publisher.

    • says

      That seems unfair from their part. Try to contact BuysellAds support & tell them about the issue. Do mention that you are with them for 2 years, and this is unfair to break a relation with existing publisher.

  2. says

Need to know that what is major difference b/w Adsence or Buy sell ads. Both are offering advertisers and publishers. Is there any cost differ or other?

  4. NARAYAN says

    Hi Harsh,
    kindly tell me whether buysellads are approving b2b marketplace website with more than 100 k visitors monthly and only 3 months old.

  5. says

    Hi Harsh,
    Thanks for the information. Alexa rank for my programming blog is 258000. I need to wait to get the rank within 100000 to get it approved.

  6. Sachin says

    Seriously Sir, its tough to get buysellads without having a popular niche like on tech, apps, web designing or seo etc. I run a popular website on Education niche with around 4 million unique pageviews, but they even rejected me.

  7. Vikrant Malik says

    Really a nice post. Sir, can you please suggest me some tips to get approved by Buysellads and also please suggest me some tips to get approved by google adsense as they third time rejected my site and all the time they messaged me that ” Your Site Does Not Comply With Google Policies”. Thanks…….

  8. Alex says

    It seems tough to join buysellads because the TOS is very hard to achieve. In addition to this BSA team says they are always ensuring only high quality sites participating their ad program to maintain its quality. It seems I need to do more hard work.

  9. Amit says

    Hi Harsh,
    I have just signed up with buysellads, waiting for approval from them. I was just searching for signups in google and found this blog.
    I update new content everyday at [], but the only problem is with traffic building and impressions, can you suggest some ideas? I am already on twitter and facebook….

  10. aditia says

    It is twice I rejected by BSA, I think right now they became more and more selective, maybe they considering your social media stat, like rss subsribers, facebook fan, twitter follower, or pagerank as you can see on the sample publisher page, I must work harder for this

  11. Rachael says

    Thanks for your article. I read it before signing up to BuySellAds and thought that’d I’d have no chance of getting approved due to my blog being new (2 weeks old at the time). I thought I’d try my luck anyway and was amazed when the approval came through so I guess they liked the design of the site and it’s regular updates – maybe saw it’s potential (I’d like to think). The only problem now is building up traffic to attract the advertisers ;)

  12. Gojeg says

    I’ve got all the requirements, except 100k < of page impressions. :D I'll keep trying.. thanks for the tips.

  13. mahesh says

    sir i have Educational website with MBA niche.May i eligible for buysell ads publisher.

    Any good other option to get income for educational website’s.

  14. Jeyaganesh says

    I have a new custom domain. Its not possible for me to get 100k impressions per month as its a fresh site. How can i get approved by BSA? My site is within that niche they specified.

  15. aditia says

    can tell me more about fresh content?? what the meaning of this??
    is the blog should be updated daily? weekly? or the content have to be unique that no other blogs have?

    • says

      Aditia by fresh content I mean :
      Your blog should be updated in regular basis. It can be daily, weekly or couple of times in a week. Depending on your posting nature. Unique content is must have for all the blogs.

  16. Samir says

    Well getting over 100K impressions a month is not really that easy for a new blog. So, it is probably as tough as getting into google adsense I guess. In fact a bit tougher than that.

  17. Vivek says

    i have been rejected. As my website includes information on blogging, wordpress, seo and finally information on colleges. In future i have been approved by buysellads or not because according to them they focus on tech/web design, etc.

    • sandy says

      Don’t worry Mr. Vivek, Do maintain good Alexa rank below 1 lakh for your website.
      For sure your site will be approved.
      Keep up trying ;-)

  18. S.Pradeep Kumar says

    Hey nice sharing Harsh !

    Should we pay any commission to BuySellAds if some potential buyers buys some ad slots ? :P

    • says

      Pradeep That’s true they keep a part of it as a commission, but its better then keeping your ad spots empty or with affiliate banner which never sells . :)

  19. George Serradinho says

    You told me about them and I signed up and got accepted. Not hard to setup and get going. My prices are very reasonable and not high at all, but I’m still waiting for someone to purchase them. I have created 2 banners, one at the bottom of my post and another in the footer (can see this one when you leave a comment).

    I will be giving them 3 months testing to see if this makes a difference on my site. If I have no sales then I will probably remove it.

    • says

      Hey George
      Depending on the niche you will get ads soon. Though for now, you can make changes to not to show black spot as ads, by making little change in the ad code.
      Moreover the downside for now is that it will take some time now to update your daily and monthly traffic and once you will have your traffic stats updated, you can expect ad sales… Best of luck. :)

  20. Curious Little Person says

    I’ve got accepted by buysellads… but need to check out how to publish the ads.. I remmeber i spoke to you on this and you mentioned that a publisher selects our blog, based on the pricing…

    I’ve used the lowest pricing, which is $10… but still awaiting some positive results…

    May be you could continue writing this series with your experience on how to actually get an ad placed on our blogs.. will be helpful and looking forward to it
