I just wanted to let other squids know that I was recently able to get my AdSense account approved. I am not one of the squids with a massive account, mine was rather small. At one time I had 25 lenses, I only moved over from Squidoo with 2 lenses and I have worked to create a total of 13 hubs. I have also only been on HubPages since the notice was given our content would be moved. I was going to hold off until I had 20 hubs but I just couldn't resist. I saw Google directing traffic to my hubs so I figured why not, if it's good enough for their search, maybe it is good enough for their ads. I am so very glad I did.
@CassandraCae, Congratulations! I am glad to hear this. Just visited your profile, you have only 13 hubs and got an approved AdSense account! That's truly great. I do have 44 hubs here and I applied for getting one but it got denied, it happened because I don't live in the USA. However, now my intention here is to earn through Amazon affiliate program. Squidoo was a perfect platform for the people like me who live in Asia. Thank you, I wish you good luck.
I think you can still have adsense but you have to be on the platform longer. I was super surprised about the 13 too. I was expecting a denial but I was approved. That's why I wanted to tell squids I got it with less than 20, just in case they were holding off like me.
Yes, now I do have to wait for 6 months long! It is a long time, my earnings now is very poor though! In fact, it was not like this on Squidoo. I earned a lot there! Only for this Adsense issue I have to suffer. Sometimes, it does make me stop writing as well. Well, @CassandraCae, best of luck
Yes,I know,its just that,we Asians have to wait for so LOng,that others not................well,I just wanted to say what 's on my mind,,,that's all and thanks anyway......It just saddened me to learn of it,and I can't focus to write,that's all..
That does stink. I am sorry you have to wait. If Google were Asian everyone else would be waiting. ☺ Do any of the mega search engines companies in that part of the world offer an ad program like Adsense. It might be worth writing a blog for one of the domains in your country along the with the work you do here. That would be a really cool adventure.
@CassandraCae... You go girl!!! Well... that will upset the apple cart regarding popular opinion about the timing of applications. I was waiting until I reached 20 hubs (I'm at 19) but this is encouraging news for me. Thanks so much for posting your results!
No greenspirit, you don't sound dumb. The same thing happened to me. You don't need to add or paste the code sent to you in the email. Hubpages has it set up so that everything goes under the right code. Just go to your earnings page and you'll see the Adsense status says "active". If you're fully approved, you'll get another email in about 2 days that says "your account has been fully activated.
Thank you Zainab...I've just looked and you are right...what a relief. I was worried about touching anything because with google you can get caught in an endless circle of wrong passwords etc. Your help has been much appreciated.
I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account...
Hi,I do not why Google is not approving my Adsense application. Am from India and I heard that people from India should wait minimum 6 months to apply for Adsense. Also they should have published minimum 10 hubs. I have...
Hello there,So I just started hubbing, but I've gotten out of the bootcamp phase. I applied for Google Adsense and was disapproved - twice. I read all the possible problems that I could fix that was sent to my e-mail,...
