Hi, I have this problem here that I hope the staff can help me with.
I heard that after publishing the first hub you can apply to Adsense and then eBay. I did that after publishing my first hub, but I got a refusal letter for Insufficient Content. I posted another hub, and applied to AdSense the second time, but got the same refusal letter. Can anyone tell me how to fix that?
Here's the copy of the letter:
Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately,
After reviewing your application, we can not accept you into AdSense at this
We did not approve your application for the reasons that we list
Insufficient content: To participate in AdSense, your site must
have enough text content for our specialists to
review it and for our crawlers to identify ads
relevant and display them on your pages. We recommend you include phrases
and full paragraphs on the site. It is necessary that the website and
are available and functional, and which allows users visit
the site with a menu, sitemap, or appropriate links. Once the
Most of your site is complete and work, we are happy
reconsider your application. "
Have you ever heard of libel? It's apparently against the law.
Alisa, I received the same letter after a couple days on hp. It's standard. All eventually worked out after being stressed out over it as I didn't know what I was doing. I ended up applying outside of hp via my business website and joining both accts. It will work out for you in a few weeks. I now bring in a few pennies, woohoo! But I'm cool with that for know. I have a business outside of hp. Money here will eventually help to fill gas tank as I enjoy my passion for writing. I knew going in that there was no real money here, only on ocassion when you produce something spectacular that consumers really want. Cool wit dat :-)
First I want to say do not listen to people that have "0" hubs. There is a few trolls hanging out in the forum that are attacking new Hubbers.
In order to get approved by Adsense you must write 10 hubs. no less than 400 words each. Add images and videos if possible.
I read the hub about insomnia. Great writing! You also have a great writing style.
With Adsense you have to earn a $100 in order to get paid. it takes the average writer about 9 mnths to a year. It takes at least 50 hubs it really depends on what you write about.
The first $100 is the hardest to reach but after that its much easier because your articles have matured and you have added more. The more you write the quicker you reach payout each month.
Make sure you sign up for the hubpage program you only have to make $50 to reach payout but you do have to have Adsense so write your 10 hubs so you can apply for adsense.
If you have any questions I will help just visit my profile page click on fan mail you will see a link click that and send me a message.
Please do not listen to people that have very little articles on the forum!
Tamron, you've been quite helpful to me as well. Thanks for the explanation. Good luck, Alisa. Happy writing!
Thank You Tamron! Extremely Helpful Information!
This thread is very old, so just to update the advice:
Don't even bother applying for Adsense until your oldest Hub is at least a month old. You do need 10 Hubs, but it's unlikely you'd get 400-word Hubs approved these days. Nowadays HubPages is looking for Hubs of 800 to 1,500 words long.
Tamron, janshares, thanks a lot for the replies, guys!
I'm actually a bit surprised it has to be 10 hubs instead of one. I'm absolutely positive HubPages Earnings section said it was just one. Anyway, still thanks for the replies. I'll try to stick it out with this site, and we'll see where it takes me.
The "must have 10 hubs" for adsense approval is not true. I was approved with only TWO hubs. I applied for (and was approved) an adsense account a few weeks after my hubs were published.
At the time that I applied, my few hubs were already getting traffic from google searches. That may have had something to do with the approval, one will never really know.
Try writing a few more hubs on topics that people will search for using google or other search engines. You can check your "traffic sources" under the "my account" section to see where your traffic is coming from.
Give it a few more weeks and apply again.
You are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Google tells you have insufficient content and they will probably email again in a couple of days and say that they have completed a partial review of your site and will give you an answer within 4 working days. Do not believe them. They are lying. They will now just forget all about you and leave you sitting there twiddling your thumbs like Budda in a 10 ft cell, stuck forever in the great Google Bermuda Triangle.
My friend Amy will help you further with her great Hub on this subject, which should be part of the learning center;
http://amygillie.hubpages.com/hub/Dont- … le-AdSense
As for the content thing itself; you are from a western country, you only need a few hubs.
You have to have whatever the review considered "enough". *Most* people with one or two hubs are rejected, *most* people with ten hubs are accepted. Thus, writing 8 more hubs will *probably* solve your problem.
10 hubs sounds a bit hard work compared to how I got my account approved from Adsense. There are various other partner websites for Adsense apart from HubPages. If you cant get an approval from Adsense though Hubpages, as a last resort, I suggest you try websites like DocStoc to get your approval.
