    Almost there but Question

    So, I am almost finished with my community forum and want to apply for AdSense. Do I have to wait until the site is entirely finished or can I go ahead and apply now. It's up and running...just no posts yet and I still have some minor things to tweak and haven't started advertising as of this moment.

    Thanks.

    Mike

    I had no problem getting approved on a new forum with few posts.
    Just make sure that you do not 'go-live' with the adsense until you have some relevant content on the page. Otherwise Google-Mediabot will visit - be unable to determine the topic - and will dump public service ads instead of keyword related revenue ads. It may take weeks for Googlebot to come back and re-evaluate your page content.
    Best to practice ad-placement offline (on your c drive) or on dummy test pages with test-only URLs.
