Many of your Hubs have extremely awkward phrasing and grammar, as though the articles came from an online translator. Quality counts to AdSense, not just quantity so you might actually want to work on that before you apply.
I was very interested in the OP's question. I have not yet applied for affiliates. I read from Lissie before I ever published, to write hubs 6 months, and have additional web presence like a blog. I don't have a blog or other web presence. I have 23 hubs. I'm confident in the quality. I have over 2200 page views, about 45% from HubPages and 55% from google, yahoo, arthritis forums etc. My older hubs are now showing 5* for time spent viewing page. Most hubs (not recipes) show 3* for earning potential. I figure I can always go back and optimize keywords, but have thus far prioritized writing hubs. Other veteran hubbers say it takes hubs 4-6 months to really be found by search engines. SO I have not yet applied for affiliates. Thoughts?
You should have applied on day one, it doesnt hurt to try.Yes, you are more likely to be accepted with a couple of hubs but it has nothing to do with time. ePn seems to have been difficult lately but you would have already been an amazon and adsense affiliate by now
The 6 months number is only accurate with certain regions, India, china and a few others that are noted on the application
If you are not from those regions than the information you received was patently wrong
I've heard before that it takes months for your hub to be picked up by the search engines. My experience is very different. My fastest page one listing was 40 minutes from publication. The keyword phrase was fairly long tail but still showed strong searches on Google's keyword tool- however, it was a wetpaint site not a hubpage. I published my most recent hub last night and within 52 minutes it was on page two. The real 'tell' of this comment is that if you research your keyword phrase and build your linking structure well, you should get page one listings pretty quickly.
I also think you've waited too long. I think Google slapping a six-month waiting period on Indian and Asian bloggers triggered undue anxiety in everyone else, because from what I can see, Western writers are still getting approved with a short track record.
Apply. You have waited much too long. I think the easiest way to get an adsense account is to start a blog on Blogger, post regularly for a week or so, then apply. Google owns Blogger, and they seem to process blogger accounts more quickly. You are only allowed to have one adsense account, so once you have one from Blogger, you use it on all your sites. However, if you have been on here for a while, you might as well apply based on your hubpages.
Blogger is the way to go. I have had my adsense for a long time but my son wanted to get an account. He built a blog through blogger, posted about 5 posts and applied to adsense and got approved. This was all in a matter of less than 2 hours.
Mr. Jackie will you please tell, me when were yourblog was accepted? i.e. how many months have passed since then? I am asking this question because, I heard that google have stopped to accept adsense application from blogs. Is it right?
Dear Jackie Thanks for the reply. I have already to apply for Google’s adsense account through blogger.com; however, despite several efforts I couldn’t be succeeded in it. That’s why I was asking.
Will you please tell me through which blog service you applied for the adsense account?, since I have heard that Google accept either an independent website for approve adsense application or through it’s own blogging service, i.e. bloggger.com. Recently I read somewhere on the web that Google has stopped to approving Google application of blogger.com also and it only approves an independent website.
actually I donot know which blog is the best to apply to adsense except blogger.com. Many people told me that it is possible to use blogger.com, I said that I would have a try, means that I did not succeed yet. I want to use hubpages, I hope I can gat an account by hubpages.
ya google now stopped giving adsense accounts to blogger.com.It pass a rule which your blog is 6 months continued after then will give adsense to blogs. Now it is also changed and u have domain with ur own. so dont wait for adsense for blogs
I think you should be able to pass. I applied when only my windows 7 hub was up (which is pretty detailed and decently written). Just make sure you go into detail when you talk about how you're going to push traffic to your hub. If adsense thinks you've got a good strategy for attracting traffic they're more likely to accept you (at least from what I've read). Good game plan = good game.
You do not even have to have a hub to get approved by google. I applied for AdSense before I had written one hub. Furthermore, I agree with what many people have stated here before: it is not the number of hubs that count in order to make any money from Google but the quality of your hubs and the popularity of your subjects. Also, mymagicview has got a very good point stating that it might be a good idea to start with a blog on Blogger, because then you are already known to Google who owns both AdSense and Blogger! Good luck to you! You have got interesting subjects and photos, but you should work on your texts. Most people are here to write and read, not only to see your wonderful pictures!
I think you should apply for Google Adsense as soon as possible. You should work on your hubs. They read rough. You want to create clean hubs that get traffic and that people will want to continue reading.
On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied...
