25 Hubs and still getting insufficient content from Adsense

    Added my profile page URL with 25 Hubs all submitted within the last 30 days and got rejected.  Got 555+ views in total.  Any ideas why I've been rejected?

      Hi ourevolution,

      For some countries outside of the US, Google requires a waiting period of 6 months after your first article was published to apply to AdSense, so depending on where you're from, this might apply to you.

        I'm in US, and it still takes 6 months for me. (For new blog anyway).

          You speak as if you've experienced this more than once, but you do know that you're allowed to have only one Adsense account, no matter how many blogs/sites you write on?

      In addition to Christy's advice, your profile looks a bit spammy with the link given and 'discount code', remove that and everything else that sounds like a sale pitch.  Just include your bio, it shows you know what your talking about, you should mention that you have published books but maybe without a link to them!

      I see your Hubber score is pretty low (53) which is an indication that your Hub scores are low too and Google may view this as poor quality.

      Try improving your Hubs to get the score up to 70/80 at least.

      To be honest, I earn more from Amazon than Adsense, you are looking at pennies a day unless your getting a few thousands views a day.

        Thank you.  I have Amazon Capsule for my books, but collecting royalties from Amazon for selling them, or Ebay sales for that matter, requires my Adsense account to be linked to Hubpages.  Step 2 in Earnings-Settings,"Associate a Google AdSense account", is the last step for both to be activated..

          Reminder -whatever items you put in the Amazon capsule must relate to the article.
          If you are putting your books in the capsules this may be considered personal advertising or spam.

      I know exactly why.   Adsense doesn't say so, but time is definitely a factor as well as number of Hubs.   I haven't seen anyone approved recently with only three or four weeks' track record - I'd say, give it two weeks and try again.

      The six month waiting period doesn't apply to you.

      By the way, it is against HubPages TOS to add a link to your profile in your Hubs - don't do it, or your Hubs may be unpublished.

        I can't remember, do you need Adsense to use Amazon on HP?

          Not if you use an external Amazon account.

    It could possible be where you are from, sometimes you have to waited a period before AdSense accept you. Continue to post feature hubs and be patient.

        You've only been here 3 weeks. Even if you were in the USA Google would not approve you right now.
        P.S. As was mentioned before -get rid of the spam in your bio.

    And don't worry about your Hubber score or your hub scores. Google does not care about those or even know what they mean. Just give your account some time to mature a little bit. At three weeks your account is too new. Twenty-five hubs is a good number, but keep writing while you're waiting for a few more weeks to pass, and by the time you apply again you will have even more content in addition to an account that is not so green.

      The best advice I got about hubpages was that a watched pot never boils.  I remember sitting there every evening hitting refresh waiting to see how many pennies I had earned for that day.  It absolutely needs time to mature.  I found that incorporating webmastertools is quite insightful also for seeing how well your sight has been crawled.

    I just started. Looking at the time it takes for Adsense to approve my hubs I am wondering if I will make anything form writing here. i do try to write good articles but looking at the posts here I am beginning to wonder if folks actually make money from writing.

      They do, but conservatively speaking it will take at least a year before any real, consistent results are seen.

        Why does it take a year?  Does the accumulation of views play a role in the search engines or something?

          There are many factors involved.

          Bear in mind you're going to earn between $2 and $5 per thousand views.   Although you can attract some readers by other means, you're reliant on the Google search engine to send you most of that traffic.  Google uses a variety of signals to decide whether an article is worthy of inclusion.   A brand new article may get prominence at first, simply because it's new and fresh - but after that initial burst, it will drop down the rankings again unless Google can see it made a big impression (e.g. if lots of people were sharing it).   

          Then it's a long slog to climb the rankings again - which it can.  As your sub-domain grows in size and age, Google will trust its content more (Google dislikes small websites).

    Does WebAnswers still qualify members for an AdSense account after they answer 50 questions? If so, that might be a quicker way to get an AdSense account up and running.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image93
      Marisa Wrightposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      The "50 answers" thing is a bit misleading.   

      If you've got an existing Adsense account, you can't use it on WebAnswers until you've answered 50 questions. 

      If you don't have an Adsense account, you are invited to apply for one after 50 answers - but WebAnswers doesn't guarantee you get one.  It's still up to Google to decide whether to accept you or not.    Like HubPages, I believe people on WebAnswers have been finding it more difficult to get accepted recently.

    I think the tone of the bio and the obvious typo in it may be part of the problem
