I have sent in numerous applications to Google Adsense so I can start to make a little money on HubPages, yet they keep shooting me down. It keeps saying "insufficient content" every time I get their email back. What should I do? I've written ten articles so far, all have been more than 800 words (most are 1,000+) and I'm not sure what to do next.
Am I missing something, do I need to write more or do anything to help change this?
Please check out my articles and see if I'm doing everything correctly.
Thank you in advance for any help on this matter...
I actually got accepted through my youtube channel. I had a lot of video plays for my music tuition videos. I used that adsense account on Hubpages.
Google does not consider ten Hubs to be sufficient, especially when combined with a three-week-old account.
Write more Hubs. It's better to have anywhere between three and four dozen, and for that content to have been published for one to two months. Google is looking for what they call "an established web presence."
I also read to write about 30 hubs, and that sometimes 500 words are enough. Keep trying, it might take a bit longer, but they should eventually approve you.
We recommend at least 20-25 high-quality articles and that your first article should be at least one month old before applying. You'll need to write 10-15 more Hubs and wait another couple weeks. Hang in there, you're halfway there.
Maybe 20-25 articles looks a lot at the moment, but in reality you can't expect to earn significant money with only few articles, so more is always better - for you as publisher and Google as advertiser.
Another beauty of more articles lies in authority of your profile, which is related to the number of your articles. If you can manage to build several dozens of articles around one particular theme, your authority will boost traffic on all articles.
write atleast 20 then try ........ and dont send multiple requests otherwise your account will be banned from adsense permanently !!
Okay thank you all for the help and support. Its greatly appreciated. I will keep writing more hubs!
Everyone seems to agree that you need a minimum of ten pieces before applying. Why then is hp sending me info to sign up immediately after 6 hubs? Is that customary or have things changed maybe?
I noticed after about 7 Hubs I started to get a notice when I clicked publish about signing up for Adsense if I didn't already have an account (which I didn't). I waited until I had 10 Hubs and then applied and was surprised to be accepted and fully signed up within a week. I have no idea if the notice comes up when it appears you have enough content or if it is just random, but my application seemed pretty straight forward at the 10 Hub point.
That does seem pretty stupid and HubPages ought to change it!
You're right, Susan, it doesn't make much sense for us to notify Hubbers so early. I suspect this is a lingering notification from several years ago when it was much easier to be approved by AdSense. I'm looking into having the number of Hubs extended before Hubbers see this notice. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

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...

I have posted one quality Hub and Adsense keeps rejecting it as "insufficient content." There are over 1500 words, 2 pictures, 7 keywords and a link. May I have an honest opinion, please?

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is...

Hi Hubbers, I checked my account yesterday on August 20, 2016 and to my surprise the Google Adsense has approved my application. It is hardly even two months, when I signed up.

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is...

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still...
