      I don't know what to say, but I got a bad news like you do,

    You need at least 10 good quality hubs, preferably more, before you will stand a chance of being approved for Adsense. The days you could get accepted by tossing one article up somewhere on the Net are long gone.

      They ask for a URL so what does a person do, write 10 articles and then submit all the different URLs at one time? Please advise how this works. Thanks for your feedback!

        You would submit the url of your subdomain, rob211rp.hubpages.com.  As WriteAngled said, you need around 10 articles or so in order to get approved.

        A work around is to sign up for an Adsense acct through a Blogger (Blogspot.com) blog.  Since Blogger and Adsense are both owned by Goog, Blogger users tend to get approved more quickly.  With that approach you would also need around 10 posts.  Good luck.

          Thanks! So it sounds like if I give them my original domain then they will be able to track all the other Hub pages I have from the original correct?

          They said that they would reconsider my application after I fixed the issues, I just didn't see what was wrong with it, now I know they want volume in order to make money.

          I don't know if this is still the case, I've had my Adsense for a few years now, but YouTube is another way to get in quicker. I think I only had 2 or 3 video's up when I got approved.

            Thanks! I'll keep that in mind but I will have ten hub pages up before too much longer. I had a bunch of articles I have written for college courses and it makes for good blogging material.

    My honest suggestion is to just get an adense account from posting on Blogger and just transferring it over here.

    Also, this is off topic, but you might reconsider how you post your content. You have to respect a Hub with a works cited page, but HubPages is not an academic site.  My instinct is that you are reposting college papers?  I would strongly snuggest giving them a quick rewrite to remove excessive quoted content that would require citing another author.

    Also think visual! Pictures, graphs, etc.

    Rob, did you try signing up for google adsense directly through your Hubpages account?  It sounds like you've been trying to get an adsense account directly through Google.  Applying through hubpages or as Len suggested, through Blogger would be easier.

    From what I understand, new and updated Hubpages have a 24 hour pending period before they're released for search engine indexing, so that might be contributing to your problem.

    Adsense does not require a minimum of 10 hubpages before they will give you an account. I was given an adsense account with just two hubpages.  However, after posting my two hubs, I waited two weeks and then applied for an adsense account.

    Good Luck!

      Thanks for your advice. I have resubmitted my application after I put up another 9 hubs so perhaps I'll be attractive enough to get accepted by Google now.

      They have informed me that I have been partially accepted pending further review...
