6 months before Adsense can approve account?

    I signed up for adsense, and I get an email that because my site isn't 6 months old, I cannot qualify for an adsense account. And there are ads in my hubs.

    And how can I earn in the meantime!!!

    Those ads are Hubpages publisher id, in the mean time sign up for other affiliate programs

    You can earn from Amazon and Ebay.

    Be patient. If you're new to this you wouldn't have been earning much anyway.

    Implement the other affiliates (Kontera, Amazon, and Ebay). Like darkside said, because you're new, it'll take a while to earn on Google anyway.At least while you wait, your hubs can be getting traffic and hopefully building status.

    I think you earn a little faster on Kontera, so just implement that in the meantime.

    That's weird. This must be new, because when I started my new account, I signed up for Adsense and my application was approved within a couple of days.

      It's a recent change that has affected anyone applying for an account, not just HubPage authors.

      I'm seeing the same thing being mentioned at Digital Point and AdsenseChat.

        Yeah Google is getting strict and frustrating a lot of folks now!  Here an interesting blogpost I found that is a hot thread ~ http://blog.2createawebsite.com/2008/12 … -bloggers/

          Well, I'm glad I signed up for an account when I did!

    Yes, Google is getting tight and tougher – perhaps because of the current credit crunch. They may be figuring it out that whilst the credit crunch continues, they can use the opportunity to limit the number of new publishers as well as to clean their house.

    It is particularly difficulty to new publishers when they say you should have your own domain – that is yourname.com and not yourname.host.com.

    I signed up from new about 3 weeks ago, with no problem.

    The policy does not to seem to be a strict one.

    I purchased my domain mid November.  My site went live Jan 2nd (Friday) and I applied for adsense the same day.  My account was approved Jan 5 (Monday).

    The difference may be that my adsense account is for my domain, not just for hubpages.
