Adsense Account Denied - Insufficient Content

    I have been an active hubber here for a couple weeks now and have posted four hubs. Three of which are Editor's Choices. They are long, organized, and have rich content. I have scores of 100, 99, 99, and 96.
    I have applied for an adsense account a couple of times now and still get denied due to "insufficient content".
    I have read numerous forums on this situation and can't seem to find a consistent answer.
    Some say that you need 10 hubs first. Some say that they were approved after only two hubs.
    Does anyone have a real answer on how I can become approved or how much longer I may have to wait?
    I'm not really looking for answers like "hang in there and just wait", I'm more interested in what the adsense set policy is on this.

      10 used to be enough, now it might be 20 0r 50.  Four is not going to do it.

      There is no set policy but there is consistency in experience.

        Psycheskinner is correct, AdSense has no set policy, at least not one they will divulge.

        I see you have been an HP member for 12 days. From what people were posting here on the forums a few months ago, it seems that AdSense approves Hubbers who have been around a little longer, perhaps a month or two. It seems that they prefer stability as well as somewhere around 20 articles at a minimum. However, I have not been on the forums much in the last few months; perhaps people with more current information will chime in.

      None of that means anything to Google.  In fact, none of that means anything to anyone outside this website.  And none of that means anything when it comes to actually drawing readers and being advertiser-attractive.

      You have four Hubs, and you've been with this site for 12 days. Google wants to see that you can earn them money before they will decide to share any with you.  (Because, let's face it, that's what AdSense is really about.)  Right now, all they know is that you are a brand-new, unproven, low-traffic, unestablished web presence.

      Having been with this site for seven years, I'd say that  totally would have done the trick back in year one.  My personal recommendation would be to write about 50 now first before applying.  That way you should have enough established traffic from the 20% of those that are actually going to perform well-enough to look like a worthy investment on their part.  But note they will also want to see some time go by, so if you suddenly dumped 50 articles in your account tomorrow, you could still be denied.
