Hey Hubpages community!!!!
Since I joined about a month ago, I've been trying to associate an AdSense account with my profile. I've heard it's best to publish at least ten hubs before attempting to do so, but I know several hubbers who have been accepted who only have 3 or 4,
Thus far I have been denied because of a TOS violation, but after reading though the AdSense guidelines I'm still confused about what in particular I've included that is restricted. I know that photos and videos are usually the culprit, but what about links?
Since most of my articles address social and political issues, it is vital that I am able to prove (with evidence) the claims that I make. I'm wondering if including links to websites I gathered information from is also a TOS violation.
When you say "TOS violation" is that a HubPages TOS violation or an AdSense TOS violation?
We don't typically penalize people for links for videos unless:
1. They're overly promotional
2. They're to spammy sites
3. They promote illegal activity
4. The video has a watermark
If your AdSense application is being denied, the best thing I could recommend would be to publish more high quality content (and wait a while before re-applying- doing so over and over in quick succession might hurt your prospects).
Your HubPages standing re: Hub moderations is not likely to have anything to do with your AdSense application (though I doubt AdSense is going to accept a banned HubPages account... so I suppose there are exceptions to this rule).
Hope that clears some things up!
Thanks for responding to me so promptly!
I was referring an Adsense TOS violation actually. I have revised my hubs and resubmitted the request several times since I started here on Hubpages, but still there is a violation. At this point I have no idea what in particular the violation is, which is frustrating to say the least.
This website is a great opportunity for me to build a portfolio of articles, but also to make some extra money (even if the amount is negligible in size). Thus, associating an Adsense account is at the top of my priority list.
I would suggest asking on the adsense forums where the users might be more familiar with adsense terms of service.

So I haven't been active much on HubPages lately but I did decide to check my hubs and see if my hubs had been copied. I found five verbatim copies across the web. I want thoughts on how to handle them as each situation...
