I just received a rejection for my application for Adsense; the long letter describes thing that simply are not going on in my hubs..not enough content..to many videos, too many headlines etc. Could they be mistaken? Or is this a laundry list of things that COULD be wrong. Could enough content may mean I don't have enough hubs (I have 7) And, this may be another crazy stupid question…they kept mentioning my 'site'; am I supposed to have an independent site other than my Hubs here?
You don't need another site. It's a form letter, so it's not specific to your situation. What they mean by "site" is your HubPages account. And Barbara Kay is right, get your account up to about 20 articles and try again. I think the HP learning center mentions 10 articles (or at least it used to), but that is old information. AdSense is more strict now, based on experiences people have posted here in the last year or so.
I have 11 hubs published, just started getting adsense revenue from them. I've also been consistently getting over 1000 unique visitors to my hubs a month.
I checked your hubs and I noticed that you have a lot of links. That may be the problem.
Thank you all for the good information. One more question, so is Adsense necessary to get on the Hubpages ad program; when I try to register it looks like I have to have Adsense in place.
There are other ways to qualify to open an adsense account that have been posted on threads before. Might be worth looking there
I guess I don't mind waiting. I'll try to get some more hubs up. This gives me some good goal numbers to work towards.
Hubs take time to build traffic, so not having Adsense at this stage is no big deal - you wouldn't be earning much from them yet anyway.
Aim for 20 to 30 Hubs, then apply again.
By the way, I also think you have too many links. Too many blue links in your text will annoy your readers. Before you add a link, ask yourself, "if my reader follows this link, will it enhance their experience of this Hub? Will it be helpful to them?" If not, don't do it - unless, of course, you need to acknowledge a quote or photograph. There's no need to link to every organisation or person you mention.

Call me old-fashioned, but I'm not a great believer in internet + money, especially not for non-professionals, I don't have much faith in internet payment things, but reading how enthusiastic Hubbers are about Adsense,...

Hi Hubbers, I checked my account yesterday on August 20, 2016 and to my surprise the Google Adsense has approved my application. It is hardly even two months, when I signed up.

I'd appreciate any advice for my problem: I was rejected by the Adsense program. They tell me the reason is "insufficient content." It feels odd to me, since I have 30 featured Hubs; from the research I've...
