    Hello, I'm having some problems with AdSense and would really appreciate some help about this. Initially, when I tried to apply to Google AdSense, I got the insufficient content problem. So, I wrote more hubs.

    Now, instead of getting that, I got the “site does not comply with Google policies”. But I can’t tell which policy I’m apparently not complying with or where this is happening or where the problem might be and what I might be doing wrong.

    I’ve read and reread the Google policies, webmaster guidelines and my hubs but I can’t seem to find the problem.     

    The Google policies:
    Content Policies from https:// support. google. com /adsense/answer/1348688?ref_topic=1271507&rd=1

    “Adult Content”
    -My hubs are about topics like anime, holidays and celebrations like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Valentine’s Day, etc.

    “Content that advocates against an individual, group, or organization”
    -I don’t have hubs that contain text content that might go against this policy since my articles are about reviews, gift ideas, etc.

    “Copyrighted material”
    -All content was written by me and not posted anywhere else.
    -I do use images that are either in the public domain or that have the creative commons license (CC:BY or CC:BY-SA). I cite the source for my images and follow the way the HubPages learning center on legal image use cites its image source (name of image artist, license, via site where I got it from then the link to that site)
    -I also use Amazon images of the products and items that I’ve listed in my articles as a member of the Amazon associates affiliates program

    “Drug, alcohol, and tobacco-related content”
    -I have not written about these topics

    “Hacking and cracking content”
    -I don’t write about these things either

    “Sites that offer compensation programs ("pay-to" sites)”
    -I don’t think this applies here since I’m writing for HubPages

    “Sites that use Google Brand features”
    -I haven’t written a hub that makes use of screenshots from Google brands or products

    “Violent content”
    -I don’t have hubs that have violent images

    “Weapon-related content”
    -I don’t have hubs that are about weapons or selling weapons

    “Other illegal content”
    -I don’t have hubs about this

    AdSense Program Policies from https:// support. google. com /adsense/answer/48182

    “Invalid clicks and impressions”
    -I don’t and have never clicked on any ads

    “Encouraging clicks”
    -I do not encourage anyone to click on any ads

    “Content guidelines”, “Copyrighted material”, “Counterfeit goods”
    -This was previously discussed above

    “Webmaster guidelines”
    -I don’t think this applies here since I write for HubPages
    -I don’t have hidden text or hidden links on any of my hubs

    “Traffic sources”, “Ad behavior”, “Ad placement”, “Site behavior”, “Google advertising cookies”, “Identifying users”, “Privacy”, “Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)”
    -I don’t think this applies here since I write for HubPages and can’t modify ads or change their placement, etc

    “Gambling content”
    -I don’t have hubs about gambling

    “Product-specific policies”
    -I don’t think this applies here since I write for HubPages and can’t control the number of ads placed on an article as well as their size, etc

    Maybe I missed something but I don’t know what. If anyone has any advice or help, it’s really greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

      I would suggest following up with Google AdSense support as they are the only organization that is going to be able to provide your answers to your question as the program is entirely controlled by them.  The only information we can see is if an application was accepted or not.

      Please consult the "rejection" email sent to you by Google. It will give you instructions to fix whatever issue caused the disapproval and give you instructions on how to reapply. If you still have questions about the disapproval, you should respond to that email to reach the AdSense support team who will be able to address the issue.

      Google's not to much into hubs that advertise more products than they do!
