I tried to register for the Google AdSense through HuPages and I don't meet there program criteria from the e-mail I read from them. Can anyone tell me how long it them to be approved for Google AdSense through HubPages? Also, can you still earn money anything without it while waiting to be approved? I have signed up and completed the HubPages Earnings Program, all that is left is to Associate a Google AdSense account with my HubPages profile.
In advance, Thank You for those that took the time to answer this forum
Welcome to HubPages, Miller.
It is always a good practice to check the Help of Hubbers forum if you have a question. Here is one thread I found that may address your issue with Google AdSense:
Best of luck.
The usual advice is to tell people who have been rejected to make sure they have written 10 or more hubs, however, you have 23 hubs and they certainly look good enough to me. Another popular piece of advice is to let your HubPages account age about a month, and you've been here 4 weeks and so I think you are good there, too.
Maybe keep writing and let your account get a few weeks older? It seems like lately AdSense is getting tougher on approving people. Maybe some of the people who were posting in the forum about having trouble getting approved could chime and and let us know what it finally took to make AdSense happy.
You have lots of football articles so I'm thinking it would be nice for you to get approved sooner rather than later, before football season is over. You could probably get a good amount of views leading up to the Super Bowl and it would be a shame not to be able to take advantage of that.
By chance, do you have a blog that you could submit for Adsense approval instead of your HP account? That's another option.
To answer your other question, you can still earn through HubPages Earnings Program, eBay and Amazon without Adsense approval.
Actually, unfortunately, you have to have an AdSense account to participate in the HubPages Earnings Program.
You are right about Amazon, though, you can become an Amazon affiliate and earn commissions without an AdSense account.
I do not participate with Ebay, so I know nothing about that one.
Don't worry, have patience and you are bound to get accepted in the Google Adsense program. It's interesting to note that you weren't accepted since I was allowed in with just 3 Hubs as I remember.
