Making Money on Hubpages

    I am a former Squidoo writer and made fairly good money with my pages there. Now that I am on Hubpages I have not made a cent. I tried signing up for Adsense, but it says there was some violation--which I have NO clue about as I never even had the program activivated. I have not found any way to get an account now. All the suggestions I've tried which you all have given me have led me nowhere. I cannot get in touch with any real person who can help me. It's all computerized. I'm a good person and a good writer. I'm so frustrated. And, now I find that my content is showing up on some crazy site called Fotopages with my full name and personal info. Any good advice??

      What is the violation? Your options from here depend on why you were rejected (if it's insufficient content, for example, you just need to write more articles and apply again).

      Your rejection email from AdSense should give you more information on why you were rejected.

    If you can't get an Adsense account, then you cannot earn a cent on HubPages ever - so there is no point in having any articles on HubPages. 

    Your best bet would be to switch to a site which doesn't need Adsense, or (if you have a specialist topic) start your own blog/website and use affiliate ads to monetize it instead of Adsense. 

    However, before you do that you need to get the copies on Fotopages taken down.   I would try writing to them first, because it looks as though they are a multi-user site like HubPages, and if the management are genuine, they will soon get rid of any members who are posting copied work.

    If that doesn't work you'll need to report them to their hosting company
