My AdSense application has been denied, which apparently makes it impossible for me to go forward with any earnings program. I'm not really sure how to address this or why my application has been denied. I followed the prompts in HubPages to activate the earnings program, and I have clear content that is actually getting views. I have published only one Hub so far, but it's perfectly legible and is getting views. Here it is:

And yet, Google AdSense told me this:
>We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.
>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.
Any ideas about what went wrong?

Chad, Dale is correct. I was denied at first, too. I waited a few weeks, and reapplied when my content had some "maturity" for lack of a better term, and it went through successfully. I had given up trying to find a way to contact Google - there isn't one that works, and the people here on the forums offered me sound advice.
You have insufficient content. One Hub is just one web page. When you apply for Adsense, they look at your account as a whole website, and one page isn't enough. Wait until you have 15 to 20 Hubs. They also look at longevity - so wait at least four weeks before applying.
You need 20-25 good hubs to get approved for Adsense via hubpages.
Thank you for these answers. I hope you won't mind a couple more questions.
First, let's say I add some high-quality content (10 or 20 more hubs) and I also wait a few months before re-applying. How does re-applying work? It looks like that avenue is closed unless I try to apply with a different AdSense account, which HubPages and AdSense advise against.
Second, unless I'm mistaken, it appears that I cannot activate any sort of earnings on HubPages without AdSense. Is that true?
Thanks again for the great info.
You just write 25 hubs and just reapply. You have been declined , not banned.
In the denial email there should be a link that will send you to a place to reapply.
I was denied when I applied after a couple of weeks here and 20+ hubs. It seems you have to wait until you have that 15-20 hubs AND have been on HP for at least a month.
I'm waiting a couple of more weeks before I apply again.
