I am new Hubber from India with only 2 Hubs. I need to know the 'time span' before a Hubber gets Google ADSense approval. The number of Hubs as per the convention seems to be 10 but then is there a time frame before applying for the ADSense?
I need some help from you guys.
Yes you need the account to be active for 6 months at least meaning during these 6 months you have to be regularly posting hubs on hubpages.
So if you do this you will have many more hubs than your figure of 10.
The only thing is that you maintain a high quality of hubs.
It is also advisable to have a more complete description on the profile page than what you have currently.
Your account, with a reasonable amount of original quality content, should be at least 6 months old at the time of application.
Yes I believe some countries, including India, must wait 6 months before applying.
@Richieb799. Yups, most probably China and India are under this criterion.
You are a techie - so getting a website on would not be very difficult for you. If you want to increase the probability of an Adsense approval, get a website. A .com domain costs around Rs 400 per year. A .co.in or .in domain will cost around Rs 100 for the first year. Shared hosting will cost around RS 600 every year. If you choose to host on blogger.com, it is free of cost.
You can get online by spending less than Rs 1000.
Stay clear of these subjects - music/ringtone downloads, free wallpaper downloads (unless you have designed them yourself), bollywood pics etc, adult subjects.
I have written a hub on adsense approval for Indians - you can read that too.
@Sidd Singh. Can you elaborate on the Blogger.com methods and .com domain prices, if not a problem?
For blogger hosting -

For buying domain names, use domainsearchindia.com - but don't buy hosting from them They accept net banking payments, so you don't need to have credit cards etc. You can also explore sites like speedhost.in (this is the one that has Rs 600 basic hosting) and unlimitedgb.com for domains and/or web hosting.
Hostgator has also launched an Indian version on Hostgator.in. The prices are reasonable - and the service is very good.
NEVER buy a domain name and its hosting from the same provider.
Some common misconceptions behind the Google Adsense approval :
1. The six month rule - The general belief is that, if you are from India or from other Asian countries, you need to wait six months before getting Adsense approval. While it is true that Google has stated the above in its Adsense help forum, it is not very strict with respect to six month rule. As long as the publisher URL satisfies Google TOS and the content is of substantial original quality, Google does gives approval at the earliest, even if you are from India and other countries.
2. Apply through Blogger - Since the blogger, the blogging platform is owned by Google, many people assume that having a blog site in blogger will quicken the process of Adsense approval. Absolutely false - Google does not favor just because you publish in Blogger. The standard terms and conditions and the procedure remains the same.
Quality content and originality matters. Hope this helps.

Hi Hubbers, I checked my account yesterday on August 20, 2016 and to my surprise the Google Adsense has approved my application. It is hardly even two months, when I signed up.
