I currently have 8 featured hubs and for some strange reason, Adsense won't approve my application. I would like to begin earning money and getting more exposure, but Adsense is blocking me. How do I get past this roadblock? Any suggestion would help. Thanks.
We recommend 20-25 Featured Hubs before applying to AdSense. Also, depending on your home country, you may have other restrictions such as a 6-month waiting period before AdSense will even consider approving your application.
For now, it's a good idea to concentrate on writing high-quality, useful Hubs, and you may also want to check AdSense's particular requirements for your country if you live outside the U.S.
I know it can be frustrating to get everything up and running, but from your Hubs it looks like you're a good writer. Keep at it and you'll have everything figured out in no time. For more tips on when to apply for AdSense, you can also check out the Learning Center Entry.
AdSense keeps raising the bar and just won't stop. I've seen estimates as high as 25 for the number of hubs required now.
I'm guessing new bloggers on Blogger still have a much easier time of it. So, if you've ever thought about starting a blog or website anyway....
Then you can apply from there and use the assigned AdSense account number here.
thanks for giving an estimate Go figure "25"
You have to wait for six months on Blogger before you can even attempt to apply for AdSense. So unless you're in a country where it's the same on HubPages then it's much easier to become part of the program here.
You just need decent quality hubs and a regular upload rate. Become as active as possible within the HP community to gain support and pageviews and enjoy your time here. Before you know it you'll be being accepted!
Thanks for info re: Blogger. I wasn't aware they were doing that now. I wonder if that 6-month thing also applies to new, non-Blogger sites? Be kind of odd if Google picks on its own website platform, but not others. Sure is getting to be one tough town around here...
I just now noticed that Christy's post snuck in ahead of mine. She's sneaky.
Thanks everyone! I think I am starting off pretty good, but I have to find ways to increase my traffic, for starters. Working on that as we speak! In the meantime, I'll just keep crankin' em out!
This is a person in Houston. (it only takes a second or two to look at someone's profile)
In my experience, this looks like a simple lack of content situation. But really, the AdSense rejection letter says what the problem is, and if the OP reads that, she'll have her answer.
Does "lack of content" mean not enough words or unsuitable or unengaging subject matter? (curious)
