    I can't seem to figure out why Google AdSense keeps denying me.

    I have 13 hubs, all featured except the most recent 3 which are pending... been here 6 days with about 300 page views. 

    Why do I keep getting denied?  I'm so confused...

    This is all they say:

    "Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. After reviewing your
    application, our specialists have found that it does not meet our program
    criteria. Therefore, we are unable to accept you into our program.

    We have certain policies in place that we believe will help ensure the
    effectiveness of Google ads for our publishers as well as for our
    advertisers. We review all publishers, and we reserve the right to decline
    any application. As we grow, we may find that we are able to expand our
    program to more web publishers with a wider variety of web content.

    Please note that we may not be able to respond to inquiries regarding the
    specific reasons for our decision. Thank you for your understanding.

      May be you should have given some more time to apply.

        Maybe.  Is there a certain etiquette about the timing?  I have heard others doing it earlier like this.  I have also heard that it's a-go when you have about 10 hubs.

          Depend on which Country you belongs. In Asian countries it is 6 months to apply for google adsense

            Yeah, I hear that.  I'm signed up with an American account.

          Google has gotten tougher and tougher as HubPages has grown.

          It's not an automatic "go" if you have ten Hubs.  Google wants to see an established and substantial web presence.  A week isn't established, it's barely begun.  10 or 13 Hubs isn't substantial.  And that zero of an AuthorScore you have means that HubPages is telling Google that all your Hubs are no-follow, and tells me that internally HubPages finds something truly lacking when it comes to the quality of your Hubs.

            Which I find strange since they have featured every Hub I've submitted.. :\

    Typically we've found that it's best...

    1. To have at least ten Hubs the first time you apply
    2. That those Hubs are well over 500 words each and of high quality
    3. That if rejected, it is best if one waits at least a couple of weeks before re-applying

    When you applied, did you have fewer than 13 Hubs? Were most of them on the shorter side?

    At any rate, we recommend letting things sit for a couple of weeks and then trying again. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    The same happened to me!  I'm a newbie too but I have put AdSense on hold for now, maybe try again in an few weeks. I'm just going to continuing on writing hubs and staying active in the HP community. Good Luck to you and I hope it works out soon

    Dont rely on Google adsense, instead advertise or recommend affiliate

    Recently the old suggestion of 10 hubs has not been enough.  Now it is looking more like 15-20.  Which is  tough requirement!

    Google can be pretty strict, I'll give you a tip - start a Blogger blog - it belongs to Google so if you submit your blog with a short article when applying you will probably get accepted.
