Adsense Denied Me Again?

  1. csmiravite-blogs profile image86
    csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago

    I have been here for almost a year (22) months. I have 15 featured hubs now, since I edited the unfeatured ones to update it and make it longer. My article length goes from 800+ words to 1800+. I have 12,000 + views so far.  After putting some work on my past hubs, I again applied for Adsense. I got the same response as before.......pls see response below.

    I know the links are all there for me to find out. But could anyone in the community, please  help me wade through this predicament? I am planning to do backlinking to increase my traffic, but how can I do that when Google Adsense keeps on refusing me? This is my 2nd refusal. Any comments from you would be much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Issues:

    Insufficient content
    ---------------------

    Further detail:

    Insufficient content: To be approved for AdSense and show relevant ads on your site, your pages need to have enough text on them for our specialists to review and for our crawler to be able to determine what your pages are about.

    To resolve this issue, please work through the following suggestions:

    - Make sure that your pages have sufficient text - websites that contain mostly images, videos or Flash animations will not be approved.
    - Your content should contain complete sentences and paragraphs, not only headlines.
    - Ensure that your website is fully built and launched before you apply for AdSense - do not apply while your site's still in a beta or "under construction" phase or only consists of a website template.
    - Place the ad code on a live page of your website. It does not have to be the main page, but test pages that are empty except for the AdSense ad code will not be approved.
    - Provide a clear navigation system for your visitors so that they can easily find all of the sections and pages of your website.
    - If you'd like to monetize YouTube videos, please apply for the YouTube monetization program (http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/a … er=2490020). Note that blogs and websites that contain only videos will not be approved.

    As soon as you've made the necessary changes, we'll be happy to take another look at your application.

      The HubPages Help page is outdated.  I haven't seen anyone get approved with less than 20 Hubs for months now, and some people have needed 30.

        Agreed. I also know that your location counts a lot for adsense approval. If you happen to be in Phillipines or India requirements are stricter for adsense approval. I only had five featured hubs and I got approved with no problems at all as I'm located in Europe.

        The information we have posted in the AdSense FAQ is the most up-to-date information we have from Google. There's no strict minimum of Hubs required and the guideline states that no one should apply with fewer than 10 Hubs. However, your chances of approval are dependent on a number of different factors: your location (they are considerably stricter for applicants outside of the US), age of content, profile completeness, etc.

      csmiravite-blogs I was really surprised that you were rejected so I contacted AdSense on your behalf. Upon second review, they decided to approve your application. You should have received an email from AdSense with login information!

        I just saw this!  Thank you very much!  I plan to do more articles,  and having Google Adsense would be a BIG Bonus! Thanks for intervening on my behalf!   big_smile

        Mariana,
        How did you contact them? I was denied yesterday and do not know why.  It says TOS, but I don't understand what I could have violated.  I am new, so I figured if anything it would be not enough hubs, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.
        Thanks

          If you do not meet all of the conditions for application, like not having enough content, you are not meeting their Terms Of Service.  Or in other words which you seem to not understand when they said them to you, you are in violation of their TOS.

          It's a good idea not to post the same question in multiple threads, otherwise you get confused!   Don't contact Google, there's no point.  The email you got was a standard one which covers all bases.  Your problem is not enough content.  Write some more Hubs, be patient and apply again when you have about 20.

    Hi csmiravite-blogs my suggestion is that you try adding your own videos. (Hub Video) This creates a neat way for ads to show before your article is displayed. I could help you with one, if you would like, you can contact me.

      Your article on "how to make" a video looks great. I better learn how to create something as nice as yours. It is awesome and I have bookmarked it for future reference. Thanks much!

    You are not going to get accepted with only 15 hubs.  I had written well over 50 before they accepted me.  Try writing more frequently.  If you have been on this sight almost two years you should have more hubs then that.  They don't want to invest money into something that isn't working.  Write at least an article a week or more if you can so they know you are worth their money.

      I think I need to edit my articles again to do links and make it longer to around 1,000 plus. Putting videos as suggested by swilliams is a great idea too. I need to put in the numbers  by increasing the number of submissions and reapply again when I have around 30 articles. Thanks much for the comment.

      1. swilliams profile image82

        I had  ten featured articles when I received  approval  by Adsense. Creating engaging articles that will capture public attention is key. This is an aspect that everyone is capable of doing. Your own unique style and insight will build traffic. I believe that you are an authentic writer you have the capability to reach your audience.

          You're in Arizona, and you've been here 3 years.   The rules have changed a great deal since then.

          Thanks much! I read a number of your articles and they are great? What software did you use in coming up with this video?

    It says the issue is "insufficent content."

    What part of that do you not understand?

    1. csmiravite-blogs profile image86
      csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      My content averages to around 850 to 900 words. I have edited most of it since my average before was only 600 to 700 words. Do I need to make it longer to more than a thousand words to qualify?

      1. Marisa Wright profile image93
        Marisa Wrightposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Insufficient content means not enough Hubs.

      2. relache profile image87
        relacheposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        You do not have enough content.  15 Hubs is way too few. 

        Read what AdSense sent to you.  Read their rules for your home country.  None of this is a mystery, all the info you need is there, but you have to actually read it.

        1. csmiravite-blogs profile image86
          csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          I am planning to add more hubs about my NGAS articles. It is a bit techie but my articles on this topic are giving me the views. I hope Adsense approves my application,  since this would mean more traffic on the site.

    2. csmiravite-blogs profile image86
      csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Btw, I saw your site and read some of your articles!  Great!  The stats are great too at 10m views. I'd probably look on how you are doing it and follow your path.

    You don't need better hubs at this point,  just more hubs.

    1. csmiravite-blogs profile image86
      csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Yep, that's what I think so too. But the video addition by swilliams is really nice. I would look at articles with videos like those. The manner of writing of relache is great too. Though I notice that his articles only hovers to  around the 800+ range. The topics though are interesting unlike mine. But I am getting the views from this uninteresting topics. Hehehe!  The downside is adsense keeps on refusing me. I better add some more hubs and reappply again when I have the numbers. Thanks for the comments.  smile

    I got approved last year I opened up an account three years ago but I did not start writing for Hubpages until last year.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image93
      Marisa Wrightposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      So how long was your oldest Hub when you applied?

      1. swilliams profile image82
        swilliamsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        I had only written one Hub when I started, when I came back years later I wrote nine more featured hubs, I had to go through boot camp. This was last year. However that one Hub remained available all that time.

        1. Marisa Wright profile image93
          Marisa Wrightposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          I'd say that made a difference - it meant that your account had age.

          1. swilliams profile image82
            swilliamsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

            Hi Marisa! I like your articles on dance my daughters are dancers great information, What does age mean? The article itself perhaps?

            1. Marisa Wright profile image93
              Marisa Wrightposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              Yes, that first article establishes the fact that you've been writing for a long time, even if you didn't have much content.

              BTW I liked your Hub on asthma, and was disappointed you'd disallowed comments.

                Oh my word Marisa! Good looking out I had no clue the comment box was  missing! Lol! Thank you! You've been with Hubpages for six years Wow! We can learn a lot from you! Thanks. And I added the comment box. Thank you.

    I wrote over 40,000 words and then applied! They accepted me. They will do same to you. Just be little patient and keep writing.

      csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      At 1,000 words per article, that would mean around 40 articles. Whew, that's a lot. I better get to work. Thanks ravi1991!

    ravi1991posted 2 years ago

    Well ! I had written 25 hubs before my Adsense application was accepted. Some hubs of mine have 6 or 7 thousands words and some have three. I remained ensured that always I cross the 1500 words while writing any kind of hub.

      csmiravite-blogsposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks much! I will try to lengthen mine to around 1,500 to 2,000 words each to be safe. Will try to resubmit again after 10 t0 15 more hubs.
