Making Sense of Ad Sense?

    For the second time, my Ad Sense application has been turned down.Not sure what to do about this particular problem:

    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.

    All of my Hubs have surpassed the 850 word mark and I'm including the recommended number of videos, images, etc. Is there some magic I'm missing in the translation?

    Any advice would be appreciated. The Hub page FAQ seems bereft of any salient answer.

      If you reside in America, I think you have just been applying too soon to be approved.  Publish 20 quality Hubs, THEN wait 30 days, then apply again and I think you'll be approved.

      (The notice you were sent is just the standard form-letter response.)

      Or, post some videos on YouTube and apply on that account.

      Hi wbdh,

      You should have at least 20-25 high-quality Hubs before applying. You have a number of good Hubs, but it's also a good idea to wait at least a month after the publication date of your first Hub to apply to AdSense. My recommendation is to write another 2-5 Hubs and wait another 2-3 weeks before applying again. Best of luck!

    Thanks - I do have 20 Hubs now published but plan on composing more:what types of YouTube would you recommend?

      Thanks, Christy. Currently I'm operating at 20-25 featured Hubs (I assume that's what is meant by quality?) but you're right in that I initially waited only three weeks before my first application.

        That was the problem.  Adsense doesn't say so but experience tells us you need to be here a month before applying.
