Adsense approval!!!!!!

    Jasmeetkposted 3 years ago

    As usual like many others, I am rejected for adsense account and I am not getting what improvement I can make to get approval

    Google gave me this reason for rejection:
    Site does not comply with Google policies: We're unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines

    How can we improve hubs as per webmaster guidelines as navigation and other things are by default via hubpages.

    Also, I have given copyrights to my photos on hub and given source lines. Is this the reason of rejection.
    Please help me out someone

      You said you've credited the images used on your hubs but you really haven't. Writing a caption underneath the pictures is not the appropriate way to credit an image that's not your own.

      I'd also suggest to avoid using the years [2013/2014] on your future hubs/current [if possible] until you get accepted.

      Another advice is to write some more informational/ 1000-2000 words hubs.

        Can you suggest why not to write (2013/2014) in hubs?

          I'm not against using years on titles but I just don't think it's a good idea to have a bunch of hubs with 2013/2014 slapped on the titles when you're applying for adsense. It might give the "Cookie cutter" appearance to Google.

            Ok. Thanks for your suggestion. I will try to remove years from title.
            Also, giving copyright with pictures can be cause of rejection?
            Can you find anything else on my hubs that can be a reason of rejection?
            I will highly appriciate if you can help me in getting adsense approval

              Use creative commons licensed images and credit them appropriately.
              You can read about it in more detail here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/legal-image-use

              You don't have to remove all of them but just try to balance them with some more unique content articles. How about some recipe pages with your own pictures? Or maybe about a product that you used with pictures of that product? Just add some more of YOUR content, stuff that isn't easily found else where on the internet.

              It is suggested by HP not to use 'Part 1, Part 2,...' or similar on the titles.

                  I was using the previous post as a relation to the dates in your titles. I apologize for not explaining.

                    can you tell me how to give attribute for images?
                    what are public domain images?
                    is it important to give attribute for public domain images?

      I suggest that you go to the following site:
      http://hubpages.com/faq/#when-to-apply-to-adsense
      and go down almost to the bottom of the page but stop at "Google AdSense on HubPages" and scan slowly to number 2). Read there.
      As Hamshi said put more words in the content. Plus improving your profile might help. Also try to make the Hubs more original and interesting.

      As others have said, you are using photos illegally.  You can't just take a photo and say where it comes from - that doesn't make it legal.  You must be sure the photographer has given permission to use the photo. 

      I have a Hub about how to use Flickr photos on your Hubs.  Only SOME Flickr photos are legal for use, and you have to credit the photographer.   You could also try contacting some nail art sites - they  may be very happy to let you use their photos if you link to them.

      I think one big problem is that your English has many grammatical errors.

        My english has grammatical errors!!! but hubpages check hubs before approving.
        have you read my hubs? Can you give me some instance?

        1. Marisa Wright profile image94
          Marisa Wrightposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          Yes, your English has many grammatical errors and to be honest, I'm surprised they are getting through the QAP - however it's not a perfect system so some things do get through.   

          I suggest you get a free grammar checker and start using it:

          http://www.gingersoftware.com/grammarcheck

          I haven't tried any of these myself so I can't tell you which one is best.

      The reason you are not being approved right now is because you live in India.  AdSense has a rule that your content must be online for six months before you may apply for AdSense if you live in India or several other countries.  This means you must have 25 – 30 Hubs which have been published for six months.  Do not reapply until you have met these criteria, because if you apply too soon you can wreck your chances FOREVER. So, when you have 30 featured Hubs, wait six months and then apply again.  There are lots of Hubbers from India who have AdSense accounts!

    You can also get a variety of photos on www.google.com.  Click on images and enter a keyword to search.  You can click on the wheel in the right hand corner and go to "advanced search."  Go to the bottom and click on: "free to use, even commercally." Lots of junk but some good pics come up too. You can also bring up the picture and go to the original page, if you want.

      I tried but I am not getting where to check license and how to attribute

      1. The Examiner-1 profile image83
        The Examiner-1posted 3 years ago in reply to this

        If it is not obvious then you have to search for it, like under 'Terms and Conditions' or 'Privacy', or perhaps it is listed in something like 'Copyright' or 'User Rules'.

      2. Marisa Wright profile image94
        Marisa Wrightposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        The rule for photos is very simple.  ALL photos are copyright (which means you can't copy them), UNLESS you can find something on the site that says otherwise.

        So, that means most photos are copyright and you can't use them.  If a photo is free to use, the licence information will usually appear close to it on the page.

        As I said, the other option is to look for the "Contact" page, contact the site owner and ask their permission to use the photo.

          I am running a blog and I want to use its photos on hubpages. Can you tell me how officially do I give permission to use photos?

          1. Marisa Wright profile image94
            Marisa Wrightposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            If the photos were taken by you and the blog is yours, you don't need to give permission.  Just state somewhere that the photos are yours.

    When applying for AdSense you have to do it directly through HubPages and NOT by going to the adsense website. Perhaps that is why you are experiencing this issue. Also, you may not have enough content on your HubPages site yet to be approved...

    1. Jasmeetk profile image76
      Jasmeetkposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      No I am applying via hubpages, but I think my issue is regarding usage of photos. I thought using watermark free images is enough, but now I think I should give proper attribution for it...

        You should try to apply again after renaming all images you have used in your page. Because images with same name, Google count as duplicate.

          ok. Thanks for your suggestion. I am going to edit my images primarily.
