Google adsense application rejected

    My google adsense application is being rejected repeatedly with the message that my site carries unacceptable content. I have applied through hubpages, most of my hubs are relating to chidlren's education, kids stories etc and I am unable to understand why it could be even remotely perceived to be unacceptable. I must be missing something here!

      From other comments in these forums there would appear to be some kind of block on contributors from India and some other countries.  I also understand from some of the answers that a good collection of hubs and some months online with them will do the job.  But someone better informed may come along soon - good luck smile

      Well, same for me too, I have apply many times but also got rejected and the reason they give is also unacceptable contents which I do not understand why too. Guess just have to be patience and keep applying.

    Thank you alternate poet for your immediate response and best wishes. Actually I have 15 hubs published and I am on hubpages for over 18 months, so there must be some other reason.

      15 hubs in 18 months isn't much - that is on average under 1 hub a month.  You might need to boost your output and leave application for re-consideration for two months.  Have you considered doing the 30 day hub challenge?

      Just a thought that might help.

    Try to apply through blogger blog and let us know.

    Thank you Shazwellyn for your response. Yes, I know 15 hubs is not much; there was an opinion that applicants with a presence of less than 6 months would not be accepted for adsense, hence my response of being online 18 months.I do intend to write much more, but I shouldn't think that the quantity of my output would have a bearing on the adsense application.

    Thank you burningdesire and TopUniverse for your thoughts. The main advantage in hubpages for me is that it is much easier to publish that even in blogger.

      I just got accepted by AdSense last week after I had only produced 1 hub and had been on Hubpages for a week. This probably won't make you feel any better, but it eliminates the possibility of you not having produced enough hubs. Have you asked them for clarification on their ruling?

    Thank you LakeShow T. I am trying to figure out how to ask them why? Is there a support email id anyone has for such purposes. That said, I am certainly happy you got accepted, and that they do not expect a hundred hubs from me before I apply!

    Everything that I have read on the topic indicates that there is no support email address for this purpose. Google has support forums, which you may want to read, and you could post your questions there as well. From what I understand, Google staff does participate in those forums.

    Lots of threads here on HubPages have dealt with the same problem as yours. If you take the time to research them carefully and then compare with your own situation, the answer ought to lie in there somewhere.

    Thank you, Website Examiner. I shall have to work out what is the issue.

    Change your From data on your profile page from “India” to “Citizen of Earth”. If it doesn’t work, change it back. I know this logically shouldn’t make any difference, but things are not always logical.

    Also, Google appears to have been somewhat of a mess since their upgrade.

      What pray is your rational basis for this peculiar advice? People should be proud to list their country of origin.

        I have seen what alternate poet has seen:

        “From other comments in these forums there would appear to be some kind of block on contributors from India and some other countries”.

        Changing the From data immediately gets rid of the word “India” on all his hubs.

        I’m not saying it is the way it should be; I’m just saying it is the way it is.

          Alternate Poet is apparently referring to the well-known fact that there is a 6-months waiting period for people from certain countries to apply for Adsense.

          Based upon the application, Adsense will know that the applicant is from India, China, or whatever. I can't imagine how changing the country of origin on the HubPages profile will make the slightest bit of difference. If you have anything concrete to back up this assertion, please provide some references.

            “Spiders” (those S/E searcher, crawly things) are stupid. Ref: Every SEO book on the planet.

            Bye for now.

    Just looking at the Google forum at

    http://www.google.com/adsense/support/b … %3Ahl%3Den

    it seems like there are TONS of reasons to deny an application.  If what Website Examiner says is true, then maybe they are applying the 6-months waiting period to you.  They can still claim this as unacceptable content, since it is such a broad term.

    I know you've been on HP for 18 months, but you only recently applied to Google. I guess the 6 months will start now.  I agree with TopUniverse, though.  You should try applying through Blogger, or even with your own website, then just use your Pub-ID here.
