First of all, gaining followers doesn't mean you'll get more people to read your hubs. If you doing it right, you should be getting most of your views from outside hubpages, like when people find your articles in search engines or through links posted on other sites. Followers are nice, but mean nothing in terms of earnings and traffic.
Second, if you don't have an Adsense account, you're not going to earn anything at all with the Hubpages Ad program, no matter how many followers you have or how many views your hubs get. You need to work on getting an Adsense account first, and then worry about getting traffic.
Did you get a reason from Google why the denied your Adsense application?
You should be writing in such a way that seach engines index your hubs and rank them higher, and that people find your hubs useful and entertaining and want to share the links with their friends. You should also create some backlinks to your hubs on other sites so that search engines and readers can discover your content more easily. That's "doing it right" in a nutshell. If all or most of your views are internal, you're doing it wrong.
I suggest you take some time to go to the learning center. Also the things you don't know such as how to create back links can be searched in the search bar above. There are many hubbers who have written about such things. Good Luck!
Actually, after reading a few of your hubs, getting involved in the religious forum might be a great idea for you...you seem to have the right kind of stuff for it and articulate it well (meant as a complement).
Summerberrie, that is so kind. I am a sucker for compliments. I will spend tomorrow reading and commenting on your hubs. You now have a devoted Hubber who will tweet your top hubs. Wish I knew how to do those smiley face symbols.
Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense....
So i am an active Huuber and i write good blogs. Ones that i have found people searching for. So please no answers like, "Write good hubs that interest people." Or something like that. Could i get more...
Why do I show 0 page views at Google Adsense, but 200 and some impressions. This doesn't make sense to me. Google Adsense never shows the same page views or impressions that I show elsewhere. Can anyone help me...
