    Hello friends...I'm from India and as we know Google has some policies in place regarding India, China and some other regions, I think I'll have to wait for six months before I get approved for AdSense.

    But till that time, can I still earn something from here or I should just concentrate on writing more hubs and apply after six months?

    There would be many experienced hubbers here who could help me out with this may be.

      same applies to me as well...sure going to follow this forum of yours. this is a vital question in my mind . though i write for pure passion not for money but yes i would like to celebrate the money earned whatever from writing. may be i will like to buy lots of books......i think same will apply to many.

      thank you for this useful hub, Ashish

    You should concentrate on creating quality Hubs and not worry about the money until after you get approval from AdSense.  You need a good number of strong Hubs both to get accepted by AdSense and if you're going to earn anything once you are.

      Yeah...I understand that, six months is a long time though.

        When I first started here I didn't reach Adsense payout for a year.

        The reality is that even if you could get an Adsense account right this minute, it's unlikely you'd earn much.  It takes months for Google to rank your Hubs high in the search engine results, and until they do, you won't get many visitors from outside HubPages.  And you won't make much money until at least 80% of your visitors come from outside HubPages.  Most people make only a few dollars in their first few months.

        So you won't lose much by not having an Adsense account in your first few months.  Just write some good Hubs and learn about writing online, so that when your account is approved, you hit the ground running.

          Thanks Marisa...I get you!!!
          That's what I'm looking to learn and implement till then.

          I learnt about Google Analytics a few days back only...and there were only about 15% of the visits from outside a lot of work to do!!!

      Yes, I absolutely agree with relache! You should really focus on your hub's quality and workflow. If seeking for answers on how to earn here as soon as possible, your psychological state will be tremendously dampened, including your motivation and ambitions. Concentrate on your writing skills, occasionally you need to re-read your hubs for eventual modifications and SEO.

      Additionally, try to cover a topic from different perspectives, the more capsules or detailed, well-written headings you add the more your work and mental calmness will improve. So basically, love what you do, write as much as possible. Personally, I've searched a lot to see how writers chase today's trends, but in fact, standards do not really exist. Like in everyday life, do your best and traffic will increase, people will eventually follow you, reach you and find you as a charismatic, interesting and exciting writer. If you are not a native english speaker, or you encounter troubles it is not the end of the world. The best solution is not to focus on tiny parts inside your hubs, but write without preconceptions and fears.

      Good luck!

        Thanks overcrok. I'm not bogged down by that really. I understand that AdSense is not open for me right now. It was only a know if there could be something else till then. Not a big deal still.

        I appreciate your advice and I too am looking forward to focus on same. I don't even have an idea yet what is all this fuss about traffic...SEO...keywords...niche and upon that there are various kinds of traffic too!!! Too much to handle and learn.

        This is actually my first time that I'm trying to write online. I hope I'll be fine with time, and with support of the HubPages community.

    What about the HP ads program? I though you didn't have to have Google Adsense to participate in that. I went to find that answer at the learning center and it sounds like maybe you do? The info I found doesn't exactly say. I thought they were separate and all you needed for HP ads was a tax ID # and a paypal account.

      Yes, I'm afraid you do currently need an ADSense account to register for HubAds.

    Adsense approval for a few countries is very difficult nowadays. This is the reason why a lot of my friends are not able to get through their process after waiting for six months also.
