Something to say about adsense

    So i just got adsense approval.  I always see people posting and asking how long did it take them and how many hubs to get in.  I can say this i only have 14 hubs, which hub-pages says you need at least 10.  However i found that i had to wait at least about a month before i could get approval.  I had stopped posting for a while and i deiced to take down all my hubs while i figure out what i want to do.  Last night i decided to re post all my hubs, did so and applied and got in.  I think its not really about how many hubs you have ( i do suggest you get 10) but how long you have been here.

    just my 2 cents.

      Good job! It's really hit and miss based on so many variables. smile

    I have to agree with you there Renaissance-Man. I applied quite a few times in my first month and got a big fat no for insufficient content but I reckon it was simply a matter of waiting until after the first month and with at least 10 hubs as you say. I had 28 hubs at that time and had been here 35 days. I suggest applying after 30 days.

      I applied for AdSense through YouTube with no content at all and to my amazement they approved me within one hour.

        You've been approved for a limited Adsense account (starts with ca-pub instead of just pub) which is a lot easier to get through linked Google businesses (Blogger, Youtube etc.)

        If you wish to use it on your own personal domains, you'll need to submit a website for consideration and approval. smile

          I'm very curious how that works. I just started a website about a month and a half ago, still working on it; I eventually want to monetize it. Do you just use the limited account but submit the new website to that account and they give you a new code if it's approved?

          1. WryLilt profile image81
            WryLiltposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            Does your account have "ca" in front of the pub? If so, yes, you'll need to submit your website. If it's simply "pub" then you don't need any further approval.

              On HP it shows as ca whereas on Adsense it shows as just pub.
              Does that make it a ca account?

                WryLiltposted 3 years ago in reply to this

                As long as it says "pub" only on your Adsense account, you should be able to use it across all websites smile

                  I think my AdSense account has been partially approved, because my account has "ca" in front of "pub".

              I didn't even know I have the pub, not the ca pub, so looks like I'm okay. Just checked it.

    I agree that it is a matter of time.  I was approved after 6 weeks, although I waited for a few weeks after the initial rejection.  It is a matter of time plus the amount of quality hubs. (at least 10).  Three weeks and 18 featured hubs was rejected just for the time factor.

    Just got rejected again today sad 20 hubs, 25k+ views and just completed 3 months.
    Any tips?

      I can understand how infuriating is it to get rejected repeatedly. They have very strict rules for us Indians according to which you need to complete six months before applying for AdSense.  Email me bro. I will tell you what to do.

      It's showing as active on HubPages..
      After monetizing you gotta apply for Adsense.

    Write 10 for a start and let them mature. Develop some tenure and apply.

    Congratulations! It took me 30 hubs and five weeks to get approved. I also received the Insufficient Content response. I tried several times after 10 hubs (as HP recommends), but it didn't work. I did apply right at four weeks, but still got denied. Five weeks was the magic number for me. I had also considered doing what you did, I didn't know if I was wasting my time since I wasn't getting approved. When the approval came, however, it was the best feeling, so I'm glad I didn't go to the lengths of taking down the hubs and reposting them.

    I do agree with you that the approval process relies more on how long you have been active and less on how many hubs. That's not to say you can write two hubs and wait it out a month and get approved, but I think if you wait at least four weeks and have ten hubs you can get approved. It would be nice if someone can truly track down the exact magic numbers with regards to number of hubs and length of time on HP. It would be so helpful for the newbies not to waste time trying until they hit those numbers.

      Length of time depends on your location.
      I got rejected with HubPages after having 20 hubs (most over 1k+ words) and being here for 3 months.
      Got approved from Youtube without having any content, just that my account was a year old.

    The status on my Google Adsense (Earnings page) says "Association Disabled by You or by Google for TOS Violation".. I did nothing though, at least not that I know of..Got rejected twice for insufficient content and figured to just let it go for now and wait til after a month..

    Does the statement mean I'm forever banned? coz I've read it somewhere here that once you were disabled by adsense, there's no way of getting it back..help...thanks!

      That's cause of insufficient content...Once you do get accepted, it'll go away..

      try the suggestion of wowtgp and paiva. I have been struggling about this adsense thing. I have 20 hubs at that time and over two months here at hubpages. I keep getting insufficient content, I almost give up that time. Then i read a hub about a trick to get adsense faster. What I did is I created a channel from youtube actually its a gaming channel. I post around 50 vid because its a walkthrough then apply to monetize the vid. after an hour they accept me as a YT partner. then I applied on adsense. then after an hour they send me an email that I've been accepted to their program. I did more research on this problem, some hubbers here they have 40 hubs and they live in US its still not accepted to adsense. and some country you need to wait after 6 months to get approve. and I read some tricks from inyarocks and docstoc. i didnt try that. I'm from philippines now I'm partially enjoying adsense and waiting for my PIN. I'd like to make a hub on this topic including the estimated total earnings here at hubpages. But, I have no time for it, I'm busy making gaming video content and guides for my YT channel..

    @sheilamaeparreno (I am not typing that again!) you probably heard about Pay Per Click accounts. 
    Once closed there is no way to open again and Google refuse to even discuss your issue.  It doesn't matter if you did anything wrong or not, once the decision is made by Google there is no going back.
    I should know it happened to me about 6 years ago and they wouldn't even talk to me let alone tell me what I had done.
    Let's hope its not the same with adsense.
    I would like to see someone challenge Google in court on this but you would need a bottomless bank account to fight them.

    Simply, it is very simple to have adsense account . Sometimes it takes approx one month to get approved but sometimes it activate your adsense account within hours.

    Hey, this is a great! I joined HP two weeks ago and my goal is to get an adsense account (though I still have to write more hubs cause I only got one) and earn from it. I really thought that it's important to have 20-30 hubs, but I'm happy with what you said that your adsense application was approved by publishing 14 hubs and by waiting for the right time.
    Thanks for posting this forum. This will be an inspiration to all of us.

    I hope this will encourage hubbers who are applying for Google Adsense accounts. I applied for an Adsense account on Sunday, and got my approval yesterday (3 days). I joined a little over 2 months ago, and have 10 hubs.

      Hi PuposeEMbraced..wow after just 10 hubs? that's great, I'll read them all now and see how I can improve mine..I've applied 3x already, declined everytime. I'm trying to monetize my youtube account but I can't.. the line is already blocked or should I say filled in by my hubpages account..Would you know how to change that into my youtube account?Thanks!

    Hey, Got lucky when I follow what paive25 did since my application yesterday was on partial review. I've waited for 2 weeks to get approved but when I try monetizing my Youtube account since I have a year old video their I got approve on youtube right after I apply. Then my application on adsense for hubpages also approved. I was a bit surprise yesterday until today when I check my adsense theres no alert message for partial review means Im all set.. so happy:)
