    I have an editors choice hub on my profile. I only have about 3 total hub posts and in the past I have not been approved for Adsense. Am I not being approved because I don't have enough content? I'd like to earn money on the really successful post that I have that has gotten constant traffic since being posted over two years ago. Please help any advice would be awesome.

      What reason does your rejection notice from AdSense give? I suspect it is probably lack of content. You typically need at least 10 high-quality Featured articles in order to be approved.

        I'm sure this is the reason. Is there no other way around this other than to publish more hubs and hope for the best when reapplying ?

          Adding more content (Hubs) is the only way to get approved if you've been rejected for insufficient content.

          If you have a blog or website containing a decent amount of content, apply for an Adsense account using that. Otherwise, no.



          Not true. It's possible to make upwards of at least $10 or more per 1000 views on a quality website that utilises Adsense. It's a lack of traffic and optimisation that leads to a lack of earnings.

    Find and slap in an Amazon vendor capsule that provides supplies for what your hub is about in the interim.

      Are people with only ten articles being approved for AdSense these days? Back when I was approved for AdSense several years ago, ten well written articles would do it. From what I understand now, ten doesn't cut it any more. Based upon what I have read here in the forums, it seems that Google is looking for more like 20. Lindseyjo, Google will like that you've been here three years, but they most certainly would consider three articles to be insufficient content.

      Edit: Sorry, PDS,   I didn't mean to quote you. Doh!

        Many people are still approved with 10 or so, but we usually don't hear from those Hubbers (most people come to the Forums because they are having trouble getting approved). Google's requirements seem like they can vary quite a bit from user to user, even within the same location.

    Seriously I wouldn't worry about adsense.  The amount you'll earn from them isn't worth the electricity it takes to check your account.  If you want better earnings find some specific related amazon products.

      I don't make much from AdSense here on HubPages, either, but the OP will need an AdSense account in order to join the HP ad program, which many HP members find pays better. If she joins the HP ad program, she can also potentially earn higher Amazon commissions if she piggybacks onto HP's Amazon account. Personally, I like Amazon just fine but make the bulk of my earnings from the HP ad program.

      Still, she could join Amazon on her own and use that account on her hubs if she decides not to build up her account to enough content to get an AdSense account. It would be better than nothing.

    Write more hubs for that is the only sure solution.

    I really appreciate everyone's feedback smile I am currently in the process of drafting a few more blogs. I've gotten success with the friendship bracelets so maybe a further broken down tutorial would get equal traffic. I will definitely make sure to check out the Amazon suggestions, I am a huge abuser of my Amazon account. wink
    Will keep you all updated on my progress.

    Is there a penalty for applying for Adsense again too soon ?

    I was approved earlier in the week with ten featured hubs. I had applied a couple of weeks before with about seven hubs that had been running since the squidoo days and been rejected as I needed more content. I added 3 hubs and then expanded a couple of my others so I had 1250 words with relevant pictures and applied again and was successful. The initial rejection e mail was quite clear that it was due to a need for more content.

    I decided to wait to apply until I had the recommended 10 hubs under my belt. I was approved in a few hours for my Google AdSense account. I also try to publish hubs that meat the suggested number of words, photos and polls etc. Best of luck to you!
