Does publishing more articles speeds up the Google AdSense approval process?
It is not only that publishing more hubs speeds up the Google AdSense approval process but what matters is the quality of content you are writing. The most important step every writer applying for google adsense is to go through the google’s terms and conditions before sending in your application for approval. If you are writing good quality content without using words that break google’s terms and conditions, then it is totally fine, but if you write on topics that break the google’s rules, then it is for sure that your adsnese application will be rejected.
Interestingly, google adsense approval also depends in the country or region you live in. For example, I am from India and when I applied for adsense 5 years back, my application got approved within 24 hours. I was surprised to see this as I had seen so many bloggers from India who did not go through the approval process at that time too. Might be the number of blogs or the quality content I had written. Right now, it is a common rule of google for countries like India, China, and Bangladesh that you must have a blogger account or a personal website or an account on a revenue sharing site like Hubpages, etc. with quality blogs or articles for at least 6 months and then you can apply for adsense. If you will apply for adsense before this timeframe, it is for sure that your application will be rejected. This has happened because of a large number of people from these countries who engage in click fraud, i.e., clicking on each other’s google ads to make quick money. Currently, google is adamant about this rule and there is nowhere in the news that they will change this rule. If you live in USA or UK, then you can apply for adsense before six months.
Also, after successfully writing hubs at hubpages for last 4 years and earning 1000 plus dollars each month, I agree that this rule is totally justified because if google will instantly approve applications from countries with increased click fraud rates, then these rates will go up and above and advertisers will lose confidence in google and google will not hire more publishers like us.
Now coming back to your question “if publishing more articles speeds up the adsense approval process”, then I would say yes because every advertiser wants to display their advertisements on good content so that they get genuine buyers to buy their products. Also, 20 or so quality articles are always better than just 2 to 3 articles before applying for adsense. I have several of my office colleagues and friends whom I have referred at hubpages. I will give you example of two of my friends. One friend started writing at hubpages around 8 months back from now and when he applied for adsense this month, he got his application approved within 5 days, first he got initial approval and then the account was put on review for 4 days before approval. Another friend asked me about hubpages and adsense and told me that he was publishing blogs at blogspot.com for last 1 year. I told him to show his blog. After checking that he does not write on topics that break adsense rules, I simply told him to apply for adsense. I was not surprised to see his google adsense account approval because I knew it will be surely done as he had written more than 50 blog posts and not a single word copied from anywhere and the most important thing he had already crossed the six month timeframe. As he is an editor, there was also no room for grammatical errors. So it is really important to publish good quality content and more content is always better but never compromise on quality. I think the above advice will definitely help you speed up your Google AdSense approval process.
