    When trying to get approved for Google AdSense, does the Account Type matter?

      I'm not really sure been turned down 3 times. I cant figure it out. If you find out let me know , because without that you cannot earn any money.

      I just got approved  on the second time on my HubPages and my personal blog, after being turned down on my first application. While I like to think I'm always improving as a Hubber, I don't think there was any significant difference in the quality of my hubs during the few week gap between my applications.

      For what it's worth, I think the main reason I was turned down the first time had nothing to do with account type, but rather quantity. I had 15 Hubs if I recall. Now I have 21. 20 seems to be the magic number, from what I've heard from others. I do think it's much easier to get approved through a host partner, like Hub Pages, than through an independent site. It's very easy to get an independent site approved once your Adsense account is approved through a host partner first.

      Hope that helps, and good luck!

          I totally understand! Something else I forgot to ad, I've heard rumor that first getting approved is much easier through Blogger, since it's actually run by Google. Not sure if it's true, but it makes sense. I've actually gotten a lot of traffic to Hubs through my Blogspot, although I got approved for AdSense through HubPages. If you get rejected again, after publishing at least 20 Hubs, that might be worth a shot!

    10 hubs is usually 'the magic number' (if there is one). Certainly it seems that this is a major factor, and that with any less than 10  hubs you are unlikely to be accepted, but plenty of people who have written 10 quality hubs are accepted.

      Considering all the Adsense threads that have popped up of late, I don't think 10 hubs will cut it anymore.  It might be more like 20, plus having the account exist for a few weeks.

        I've noticed that too.  Things seem to be getting tougher.

        I agree that it looks like the ten-hub mark that we've advised people to hit in the past doesn't appear to be enough anymore, based upon posts I've seen in the forums in the last few months. Someone suggested 100 hubs but I think that is overkill. The OP has around 20 hubs but was rejected; his account is only 4 weeks old. Maybe if he lets his account age another couple of weeks and keeps writing in the meantime, that would be enough. He's got a good niche, IMO. I'm surprised he wasn't accepted the first time.

          How many more weeks do I give it?

            @ Miller: I'm just guessing here -- maybe in a couple of weeks?

            @ everyone: Some general advice for anyone and everyone applying for AdSense: use a spelling checker and a grammar checker on all of your hubs and also on your profile page. One easy way is to use the Firefox browser, as it will underline any incorrect spelling with a red squiggly line. Microsoft Word will also catch grammar mistakes, I believe (I can't remember for sure). I don't want to single anyone out because we all make mistakes, but I thought I would mention it here as AdSense seems to be rejecting so many people, I think it is something for everyone to take action on.

            Also, try for at least 500 words in your hubs. I don't think a short article here and there a problem, but if all of your hubs are under 500 words, I don't think AdSense will be too impressed. Shoot for a magazine article, not a blog post.

            I'm not a pro; anyone with better, different, or more advice please chime in. It just seems like lately there are so many rejections of accounts that would have been approved in the past. I'm not sure what the reasons are, but I would make all your articles as professional as possible.

          My experience also seems to confirm that 10 hubs is no longer enough. I applied for AdSense with 11 hubs and 2 weeks and was denied for "not meeting requirements." I feel I have pretty good quality hubs, so I am going to keep on writing and waiting until my traffic is a bit higher before I reapply.

          Wish you success, Miller2232!

    AdSense offers two account types: Business and Individual. There's no difference in the services or payment structure between Individual and Business accounts. Business account payments will be made payable to the Company Name, while Individual accounts are paid out to the Payee Name of the account holder.

      I have another question. Is it possible that I'm not getting approved because my Hubs are all not published yet? the times I tried to register for Google AdSense, some Hubs were still be in that 24 hour process to be published.

        If your hubs are not published yet then Google won't be able to see them.

    As the review of your hubs will take ca. a week to google, your unpublished posts will be published in a week, so don't worry about it !

    Getting adsense approval is getting tougher nowadays. Why not try writing 100 hubs or posts  before applying for adsense? I'm sure they would gladly welcome you if you are in the right niche.

    To me, First your hubs should be with good quality content and at least 100 visitors daily then you can get easily approved. Whether you've only few hubs.

    I was rejected because Google cant read the content or code on my site ? So its viewed as " Under Construction "


    What Code are they referring to ? I thought I followed all the steps to apply

    1. lanablackmoor profile image96
      lanablackmoorposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      They're referring to the code you have to place on your non-host partner site in order for it to be reviewed for acceptance into the program. Log into your AdSense account, select "My Ads" on the blue ribbon at the top of the screens. Go to > Content > Ad Units > New Ad Unit. That will allow you to name and generate an ad code that you will have to place into your website.

    i got my application through youtube. so if you put up a couple videos and get decent traffic its a guaranteed approval bc youtube is a google company.

    Will Video's or 2 many Video's in anyway bring about a Rejection from Adsense ?

    Google Own's Adsense - So I would think Video's would not be any issues

    I got approved by adsense through blogger.  In fact I just posted 2 blogs.
    However I did have to wait a few weeks.  I think its fair to say you are much
    more likely to get approved if you apply through blogger as blogger is part of google.

    I have applied 3 times, my last one being yesterday. Within hours, I got a response saying that it was ONCE AGAIN disapproved. I'm started to get so discouraged sad

    If I now change and try to go thru blogger , I'll have to set up a new email and go thru that for a different adsense account -
