Got Approved then disapproved by AdSense?

    Hello, I have a question about Adsense. Yesterday I applied and got approved, then got the Amazon program, but then got this email today:

    As mentioned in our welcome email, we conduct a second review of your AdSense application once AdSense code is placed on your site(s). As a result of this review, we have disapproved your account for the following violation(s):

    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.

    To resolve this issue, please work through the following suggestions:

    Make sure that your pages have sufficient text - websites that contain mostly images, videos or Flash animations will not be approved.
    Your content should contain complete sentences and paragraphs, not only headlines.
    Ensure that your website is fully built and launched before you apply for AdSense - do not apply while your site’s still in a beta or “under construction” phase or only consists of a website template.
    Place the ad code on a live page of your website. It does not have to be the main page, but test pages that are empty except for the AdSense ad code will not be approved.
    Provide a clear navigation system for your visitors so that they can easily find all of the sections and pages of your website.
    If you’d like to monetize YouTube videos, please apply for the YouTube monetization program. Note that blogs and websites that contain only videos will not be approved.

    I have no idea what in the world they are talking about. I have plenty of sufficient text, in paragraphs, and the navigation and YouTube parts are irrelevant in hubpages. From what I understand I only had to place a code if it was my own website and not hubpages.

    Can anyone tell me what this means? Maybe this is something else that I'm just not aware of?

    Also for the record I have hubs that are over a month old. They were just edited recently so the time for them is a little off.

      Hi Linnea,

    I got another email last night, too, a few hours after this had been posted:

    "Your Google AdSense application has been approved. You'll soon begin to see relevant Google ads appear on http://hubpages.com/@linnealewis.

    Please note:

    Your AdSense account only allows you to monetize the content that you create on AdSense host partner sites.

    To track the performance of your new Google ads and access more AdSense features, sign in to your AdSense account.

    If you later decide that you'd also like to implement AdSense on a domain that you registered yourself, we ask that you provide us with the URL where you plan to show ads. To submit this one-time review request form, follow the steps described in this help article.

    The Google AdSense Team"

    Now I have no idea what to think. When I go to my adsense account it still tells me to reapply.

      We haven't heard back from our Google rep yet about your case, but I'll let you know when we know more.
