Can't get approved by AdSense. What am I doing wrong?


I have six Hubs, and I've been on HubPages for a couple of weeks. I've applied twice and been turned down, citing "Insufficient Content". I've tried asking on Google AdSense, but have only gotten a couple of rude comments. For those who are using AdSense, what do you think I'm doing wrong? It looks like Google is already placing adsense ads on my hubs. Is that possible? My hubs tend to be 1600+ words, with polls and/or quizes, and images. I've used images gathered from search engines and listed as not licensed, yet the replies from the Google forum says I can't do that. Help?

    Thanks for the reply. Reading around, it seems that many people seem to want to leave HubPages for greener pastures. I'm brand new to all of this, so I don't even know what they mean. Ha!

    Thanks for the advice. It is appreciated. Being new here, I am sort of stumbling round and learning as I go from trial and error.

    Thanks. I'm just anxious to get it going. Just curious as to how it works. One person on the AdSense forum said my content was unoriginal, so they'd never approve me for an account.

    Unfortunately, most of the images you find through regular search engines are not free use - even if they say they are. Your Duck Dynasty photos are publicity stills and def not free use.

    Thanks, Ben. I'll keep writing! About my images: what I mean is I search Bing and type in my search: such as "Phil Robertson". A bunch of pictures will appear, and I click on 'license', and select 'free to share and use'. Then....
