    Hello All! 

    I am new to this hubbing thing and am having a blast!!  I am also stuck.  I'm hoping someone can help me.  I tried to sign up for Google AdSense and it said I had to sign up through HubPages.  When I try to sign up through HubPages, it says to go to Google AdSense.  When I tried to fill out a form to ask Google about this, the form rejected the ID number for HubPages.  I feel like I'm going in circles at this point and am at a bit of a loss. 

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!  yikes)

    Hi! I think I know what's going on. You might want to wait a little longer until you have, say, five to ten hubs on here before signing up with AdSense again. You have to have a few hubs before you can sign up. Trust me, I know, because it took me four tries to sign up with AdSense before I realized that I had to have a number of hubs in order to get signed up. So you might want to hold off a bit longer before trying again. I don't know if I explained this well, but hang in there!

    Hi writinglover! I signed up for AdSense when I had three hubs and got rejected:( How long do you have to wait until you try again? And how many hubs do you think one should have before signing up? many thanks

      Try somewhere between five to ten hubs. I recommend you have ten hubs and try it then. As for a waiting time, I don't think there is a specified time to wait. Just wait until you have those hubs up and going and try it again. Hang in there! You'll get it!

    I've seen a lot of posts regarding acceptance problems with Google Adsense. Maybe there are some backend issues however I would advise - exhaust some more time to develop tenure. Publish more in the mean time as well and do some self promoting. I can't see why you would have any problems after another month or so. Just keep at it. Good luck.

    I think they accept you according to how many views you get in a day. I got accepted after I started getting over 100 views a day.

    I think my problem is more than just being a newbie.

    When I tried to "configure" AdSense as it requests on HubPages, I got a red error message saying that the application was rejected and I should receive a detailed email saying why.  It also says I should go to Google AdSense, correct the problem, and try again later.  This made sense to me as I am new and probably do not have enough traffic or published hubs yet.  But, I never got the email so I don't know what I did wrong. 

    Then, I tried to be pro-active for the the next time.  I wanted to see if I could log-in to AdSense through my Google email account and I got an error message saying that I am signed in to my Google email account, but not to AdSense.  And that I need to sign-in to AdSense with the email on my application, which doesn't sign-in to anything. 

    When I try to sign-up through Google AdSense, it says that I have to sign up through HubPages, and HubPages says I have to correct the error through AdSense.   I feel like I'm in a loop. 

    I know I need to wait a little while before trying again, but I would like to know for sure what I did wrong.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

      Hey! I'm almost certain that it has to do with having a certain number of hubs published before you can apply for AdSense. When I applied for it and got rejected, I had a message that I didn't have enough content on Hubpages. Did you get this message by any chance? If you did, it is probably as I said. You have to have a good amount of hubs (5-10 I would say) and make sure they are good quality--which I'm sure they are, I'll visit--and long enough (500 words or more).

      Here's part of the e-mail I got when I was rejected:

      Insufficient content: To be considered for AdSense, your site must contain
      enough text content for our specialists to review and for our crawlers to
      identify relevant ads to show on your pages. We recommend including more
      complete sentences and paragraphs on your site. We require websites to be
      fully launched and functioning, allowing users to navigate throughout your
      site with a menu, sitemap, or appropriate links. Once the majority of your
      site is complete and functional, we'll be happy to reconsider your

      This situation very nearly sounds like what I had to go through in the first few weeks. Did you sign up for the HubPages Earnings Program?  I'm asking cause' I just now thought of it and I want to make sure that you got every step so far. The link below will help explain the program (I had to read this over and over until I got what they were saying).


      Anyway, we'll see what happens and go from there. Hang in there, fellow hubber! I know it's frustrating. Been there, done that! LOL!

    Hey WritingLover,

    Thank you for sharing the email you received!  I learned of the rejection from an error message when I tried to configure AdSense.  I never got an email from Google. 

    Yes, I did sign up for the Earnings Program and it is showing as complete.  But AdSense is the problem.  When I click on the link in the error to go to Google and correct the problem, it just sends me back to HubPages and will not allow me to log-in.  I can log-in to my Google email account, but not to an AdSense account.  I kept getting an error saying my email address is not associated with an AdSense account.  Maybe I can't log-in because of the rejection?  If that is the case, where do I go to apply again?  My understanding is that you have to log-in to re-apply.  I went through the recovery stuff on Google too with no success.     

    I know I need to wait a bit, but I'm trying to be pro-active as much of this out of way as I can so I can concentrating on why I am here, to write.  I also noticed that on the earning page, all the tracking is 0.  It doesn't seem to be keeping track of anything. 

    I will wait to see if the error messages changes over the next few weeks.  I also emailed HubPages to see if the support staff could help. 

    Thanks for your help...I hope you have a wonderful holiday!!!

    I think you might try linking your g-mail account with adsense. I had the same exact problem that you are having now. I don't know if you tried that yet, but that is the only other solution I can think right off the bat!

    Hello, how about trying what I've done?

    Instead of signing with HubPages or waiting until you've got some articles up, head on over to a free website maker (I prefer Weebly) and make a quick little site. Could be on whatever you want! I made mine on punk music lyrics, for example.

    THEN go sign up for Google Adsense, using that site as the one you sign up with. It's always worked for me, and I'm usually activated in less than 48 hours. Then just take your Adsense ID and shove it into the HubPages designated area for it, and you're good to go.

    How can you link your email with AdSense if AdSense doesn't recognize that you exist, yet says that you have to sign in with a different email which it does not recognize?  I was going to try to start over again, but apparently you can't.  I think there is a Glitch in google.

      You're probably right about the glitch. I'm sorry if I can't be of anymore help. I've exhausted everything that I could think of.

      You'll find a solution, though! Happy Holidays!

    Hmmm...maybe I will try that.  I've tried everything else and nothing has worked.  Although, I understand you can not have 2 AdSense accounts.  Google doesn't seem to recognize me when I try to log-in, but, it thinks I have one.  I tried recovery, but that was not successful either.

    One day something will happen and it will fix itself.  If not, maybe the folks from HubPages will lend a hand.  Either way, I'm sure it will work it self out.  Thanks for reading my babble!!

    Happy Holidays To You Too!!!!
