Google has various conditions that are considered as request approving parameters. Whenever you are prepared for asking ads from Google you first have to fill the form Google provides for requesting adsense. It takes a week time by Google to track and analyze your website (blog) and then it mail you with the result of your request. If approved then it will send you the link of the ads account from where you can create different styles of ads like static ads, dynamic ads, video ads, ads banners of different sizes and text ads etc. From that account you can keep a track of all the clicks and views your ads get on your website. Google is a good payer for ads click and hence many websites wants to go for Google ads.
If your request gets rejected then google does not entertain the same blog for the next 6 months or 1 year. So you have to wait for the next 6 months to apply again.
For a single website you get one ad account. It also means that you cannot use the ad account for multiple website or blogs. For every blog you need to request to google for ads display permission.
During the period of 1 week when your form is under process for ads approval the google analyst takes various parameters into account to decide whether to allow ads on your blog website or not.
