When to apply for AdSense?

    When I joined HP, I applied right away for AdSense and Amazon and got accepted without a hitch, but I think things have changed since then and am wondering what's the current opinion on when a new hubber should apply for AdSense? 

    I ask because someone I know has signed up via my tracker and I'm helping her get things going, but I don't know what I should advise as to when to apply.  She's been signed up now for about a week and has 5 or 6 hubs.

      I think it can vary depending on your country. In Australia I've seen people get Adsense accounts without writing a single hub while in other places you need six months of quality writing to get an approval.

      You might be able to gather some more information about current approval times via the Adsense help forums.

      If the newbie is in a country that's been identifed as a high spam source (India, China, Phillipines - not sure where else), then she'll have to wait six months before applying.

      Otherwise, I don't think there's any specific guideline - like Wry and Mikey, I applied and got mine without a single Hub.  To be on the safe side, you could suggest she writes half a dozen Hubs before applying?

    I honestly didn't even know it was an issue. I don't know what I had to do, but when I asked for it I got it.

    I'm from the US.

    There is no reason to wait really I have been on Hubpages two months now and am with Google adsense ad Amazon. One thing I tend to do is not advrtise links to things that I can't explain.

    Like you, I do not really fully understand Adsense so I would not provide a link to it.

    You have been here alot longer than me though, so I'm sure you will get there.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone - that helps.  I guess things haven't changed that much since I started!

    This is a myth because new hubbers from those countries who are applying from hubpages signup form are approved within few weeks. As for high spam resource, this will help.

    I'm realy up to my neck with adsense and just feel not to apply again because they keep on giving instructions that to me is not clear, this is my most famous msg from them:

    The URL you should send to Adsense is your profile URL.
