XML Sitemap Page
Creating a sitemap doesn’t take too much of your time. If you are using WordPress, I recommend Google XML Sitemaps By Arne Brachhold. And if you are using any other platform, I recommend you to checkout XML-Sitemaps website for more info. Installing a sitemap on your website can help search engine bots to index your website faster, which is again a trust factor to bots about the website trustworthiness.
Creating Robots.txt file on your website will get rid of indexing unwanted junk onto Google. It restricted all the unwanted data indexation to search engines, which adds a lot of value to your Search Engine Optimization efforts of ranking the pages higher on Google.
Before applying to AdSense, make sure your website global Alexa ranking is less than 400K for faster approval process. Usually the website above this rank is considered to be new and underestimated that no much data is seen on them.
Custom Domain and Email ID
Google Adsense team take a custom domain more seriously rather than the free domain name create through blogspot and free wordpress platforms.
Let your blog age a few weeks (Atleast 2 months) before you rush to apply the AdSense program. I would always recommend you to stay until your website get a minimum of 50+ visitors per day. If your website is not getting enough traffic, the chances of rejection is much higher when compared to other guidelines.
