    Hi everyone,

    I am new here. I applied for ad sense and it was rejected because I have only two hubs published. I am confused because even though my application was rejected I can see ads on my hubs. How come? I thought the ads would only appear once the application is approved.

    Thanks in advance.

    This happens quite commonly- I recommend waiting until you have about fifteen Hubs published, then trying again. It's best not to keep applying in quick succession- it can reduce your chances of being accepted.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Right now HP will be earning from your Adsense adverts until such time as you're approved. This is the price you pay for using their platform, but ultimately when you are approved you will earn from your ads 60% of the time. Right now HP are earning from your ads 100% of the time.

      You can turn ads off entirely on any Hub you like under "Settings" in the HubTool.  So, while you are probably correct, it doesn't have to be the case.

        I see Paul Deeds (HP staff) has responded to my post above, and what he says makes sense (apart from the bit where he says I am 'probably' correct, as what I said is correct, no 'probably' about it). Not a problem though, to be honest it is not big deal in your early weeks of writing as your hubs are unlikely to be making any money anyway until you have been here 6 months or more.

          My intention was just to let him know that he could turn ads off while he was waiting if he liked.    For all practical purposes your answer was right.   When I said probably, I was just trying to avoid going into unnecessary detail.  But for the record, what you said is definitely not correct  because this user was referred HubPages is not getting 100% of the impressions.  In addition, on any Hub visited by someone with a live referral token cookie, we will also do not get 100%.

            Fair enough, I stand corrected and admit I had forgotten to factor in referrals.
