I'm out of ideas to enable AdSense. Please, help!

    I have an AdSense account

    My first application to AdSense was denied

    I then tried to apply through HubPages mechanism but was denied because my account was 'disapproved'

    So I searched and searched for what to do and heard that I could create a blogger blog and use the AdSense activation on that site, but apparently when your account has been 'disapproved' blogger states as default that your account was disabled (which mine hasn't).

    How am I supposed to appeal this, fix this, or work around this? I am completely out of ideas and my research isn't turning up anything new or hopeful.

    To reiterate:
    1) My account has never been active
    2) My first application was 'disapproved'
    3) HubPages won't let me register a 'disapproved' account
    4) Blogger also won't let me register a 'disapproved' account and states that it was disabled as a default message

    I beg of you, please, help me!

      You may have to contact Google support and explain the problem to them. While I waited for approval I found that  many people were just given random answers like yours.  Write more hubs and reapply  again.

      Hmmm, what if you tried to sign up for Adsense under a new email account?
      Maybe your spouse?  -- just some ideas.

    Trying through Blogger ruled out our first option.

    Second option is blackhat and I won't go there.

    Third option is write some quality articles, change them to pdf and load them onto Docstoc dot com. Get a few pdf's uploaded and keep doing this for a few days.

    Then apply for your account through Docstoc.

    That's one other option that might be open to you.

    Thank you for the advice. I'll have to look into that tomorrow.

    If anyone else reads this and has some ideas I'll take all the help I can get.

    Thanks again! I love this community -- so mature! smile

    Use a different email address.

      Obsolescenceposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      They do already have my name, address, etc

      How could I fill out another account's info in such a way that they could still pay me but not recognize that I have 2 AdSense accounts? I was under the impression that they terminate accounts and ban people for opening multiple accounts. Or do they only count active accounts?

      Thanks for replying!

      EDIT: Oh and I love your picture!

        If your first application is denied, then you won't have 2 Adsense accounts if the second application is approved.

        Though in your opening post in this thread you say "I have an AdSense account".

        Before we continue trying to help, when did you get the rejection email and what did it say?

      That will cause you more problems as your physical (home) address and your phone number's are with them... Please don't do that .

        The first application was denied. It's not like it was banned. There shouldn't be a problem with using a different email address.

          I did that and I had to wait for seven months to get through ..that is all I can say.  Multiple applications are not well liked by Google... check their site...and you will see what I mean.

    Try webanswers or flickr, just make sure you were never banned by Ad Sense.

    Well the saga continues...

    I tried to apply via the AdSense site by using my blogger blog's URL and a got another email citing 'domain ownership,' but an hour and a half later I get another email saying congrats you've been accepted. The only problem is that none of my interactions with blogger/hubpages/adsense seem to have changed.

      The Google Histrionics smile  yes the saga may have ended for you, but there will be many others who will go through this .... call it by any name ..the Google ground reality!! smilesmile

    On the bright side, the HubPages Ad program seems to be paying well.

    Amazon and, especially, Ebay are the biggest challenges to getting approved these days.  However, both also earn the most income.

    I'm a newbie on Hubpages so forgive me for being ignorant. I noticed several Google ads on my blog for shelter dogs and rescure organizations. This is fine as I write about dogs.

    My question is--do I get any pay for these ads or are they on the house?

      Do you have an Adsense account?

      Have you read this page: http://hubpages.com/faq/

        Thank you, Darkside. I did read the FAQ(or a good bit of it) just now. I only have an Amazon affilitate account, no adsense account.

        I'm a bit puzzled about what adsense does for me. It seems that it is so hard to qualify for that I may as well wait for a while to apply.

          I have to say I never had any problem getting an Adsense account, and it can pay very well. You will need one in order to make a decent income here, if for no other reason than you need an active Adsense account if you are to qualify for the Hubpages Ad program. Together the two programs will most likely form the bulk of your income from writing here on Hubpages, (although some people do very well on Amazon too).

            Thank you, Misty. I guess I'll apply for the Adsense account and then the Hubpages Ad program. This is all new to an oldsoldier and quite confusing.

          At the moment I'd do as you've suggested, and hold off applying.

          I'd have at least ten good hubs behind you. The current ones are probably too personal. If you added more information about dogs or specific breeds and add your personal story as a side bar it would probably have a better chance at Adsense approval.

            Thanks, Darkside. I'll do that.

    I still haven't gotten AdSense to work. Does anyone know if emailing Google would help or where I would send an email for this type of problem?

    I don't really understand how this hasn't been addressed before, because it was a very minor mistake and yet this has become a huge hassle to try and untangle when there is so little info around and so few options to try.

    I already emailed the HubPages team days ago but no reply.

    EDIT: By the way, thank you everyone for all your help and suggestions. I'm sure I'll figure this out eventually.

      Did you try doing it through HubPages?

      And by that I mean going to https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/ and clicking on Configure next to Google.
