    I have posted one quality Hub and Adsense keeps rejecting it as "insufficient content."  There are over 1500 words, 2 pictures, 7 keywords and a link. May I have an honest opinion, please?

      I was accepted to the Adsense program using one of Google's Blogger blogs. I do not know if this helps with acceptance.

      It really is safer to have about 10 hubs when you apply. But in my case, I got past the insufficient content issue after writing my 6th hub. The problem was, another rejection issue came in the way.

      So, I highly suggest that you also consider reading the Google Adsense policies. Or you may opt reading some hubs on Getting Accepted in Google Adsense. This will ensure you get to be accepted in adsense program. smile

    You need more content = you need more hubs.

    The prevailing guess is that you need about ten to be safe, but some get it with fewer.

      You only need one hub. You got the right idea of using your own photos though. I think Google may automatically reject hubs that have copyrighted photos or other copyrighted material on it.

        i had ten hubs before I applied. It's better to have more hubs.

          Agreed, I naively applied for Adsense straight after I joined (I was too excited) only to get rejected. Once I calmed down, I trawled through forum posts and discovered that you need at least ten before they'll accept you. So the more the better. Keep writing and good luck.

            Hmm. Did this change recently? I applied and was accepted after only 1 hub (which wasn't even good). Granted that was 2 years ago...so maybe the rules really have changed...

              I am new, so I don't know about their standards. However, I am confident my first Hub is quality and has content that is interesting. I am averaging over 50 views a day.

        Hm...My pics weren't copyrighted, but maybe they have a sorting process that involves pics used. Something to think about....

    I just got rejected too. Although I applied after I published my 1st hub which I believe was what they required initially only to discover that later it's not enough through an e-mail. Now, I am going to work hard on publishing more hubs probably 10 or 11 more just to be on the safe side. Wish I'd seen this before I applied for Adsense.

      Ten sounds like the lucky number!   The reason given me was not enough content. Then, I read other hubs that had less content tham mine, so that confused me even more!  Now I realize I just need more hubs!
