After 7 months and 19 hubs including 5 Stellar and 9 exclusive titles my adsense account has disapproved. This is disappointing. I cannot find a way out to solve this issue. I have got an error of insufficient content.I don't know how to react to this issue. I have read on websites like trionode that you approve 5 articles and the adsense account is passed. Here I am experiencing all sort of difficulty right from moderation to earning issue.I have not earned a single penny till now. Can I know finally whether my adsense account will be passed or not.
Hair topics do well on pinterest if you need more traffic.
I was informed of 10 hubs. I have completed the double...how much more content is required.
I never quit of 3 years to get adsense. Though I am not full time on the net, I know how it feels to be turned down by Google.
Don't quit yet. I want to add to your information, have a high traffic to your hubs, maybe about 1000 viewers.
If disapproved, send email to HP to remove adsense and then reapply two months later, like what Simone said.
Write contents higher than 300 words or much better 1000 words up.
Love your work being a writer. Enjoy while hanging around here in the Hubpages site so as not to worry while waiting for the next adsense application.
Do you have a Google Account with Gmail, AdWord, and Google Analytics enabled? If not, do those first. That may help get your AdSense approved.
Dear do not get disheartened. I have faced the same things that is 22 hubs and 10 months and rejection. I reapplied again at 12 months, again got rejected and then stopped writing. Just a month back, I was checking on my account and found that it is automatically approved by Adsense. So, Keep on doing the hard work and let it happen automatically. Accounts from India specifically takes much more longer time to prove its genuinity.
The fact you have stolen a blogger's personal photograph for your French bun hub has probably not helped you.
Simply attributing the photo to titianknitter.wordpress.com is not enough if you do not have explicit permission to use it. I would be furious if I put a photo of myself up on a blog and someone else stole it.
Yes, photograph problem is always a violation everywhere. I prefer having my own pictures to make sure it is my original work.
Hi writeangled. The issue is not photo violation but insufficient content.
That was my strategy to get adsense, I made another hp account. I unpublished my hubs for few weeks to remove my hubs from the search engines and then posted back later to a new account. This helps as long as you have made original hubs.
Monisays2u, I would be very hesitant to do this if I were you. Since you are in India, you would have to let your new account age for six more months before Google would approve it, I believe. This strategy might have worked for francisassissi because he/she is not in India and doesn't have to wait six months.
I think your best bet is to clean up the English in your articles and make sure they are completely original, then reapply. Just my opinion.
Thanks pinto2011 for replying.
I just to know whether the account will pass or not?
I said stealing photos would not help your cause.
Apart from anything else, it will make Google suspect your content is not really original either.
Hi monisays2u, only because you are asking am I saying this, but I think it would help if you worked on your English. As an example, the first sentence in your article about homecoming hairstyles says
"There are many occasions when you require a peculiar and decent hair-style."
Peculiar means strange. I don't think any girl wants a strange hairstyle.
Also, a couple of your articles contain chunks that are too similar to articles already on the web. You need to rewrite them more in your own words.
Additionally, it seems that Google has become more strict about handing out AdSense accounts. A few people are getting approved with ten hubs, but from what I've seen people saying here on the forums for the last few months, ten is not cutting it any more. My advice is to write a few more hubs, fix up the English on the ones you have, and make sure all your articles are completely original.
<link snipped> There you are. I had a similar experience, as do many people. The way I fixed my issue was to apply with numerous different email addresses until I was approved. Once rejected, I have never heard of anyone being accepted on a 2nd try.
You do not need to get a new email address to reapply. Do a search of the forums and you will find plenty of examples of people applying several times before Google finally approved their AdSense account. Google wants plenty of well written, professional content and also wants to see that you have some sort of web presence and some traffic.
I have heard that if you reapply too soon they will automatically deny you. However, no one really knows what Google thinks or does behind the Google gates.
It's funny that you say that because in my poll, not one member who contacted Adsense, says that they had their problem fixed. If you read my ring around the rosy problem, you would see that I had no choice in the matter, but to get a new email, as the instructions from Adsense sent me in circles and their customer service never replied to my questions.
And don't assume that I "just reapplied". I had over 20 hubs at the time, all of good quality and I kept adding before I reapplied. Adsense sweep you aside once you are rejected once. Or so, every reader of my hub agrees at least.
I'm just trying to help, also. Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm basing my answers on people in the forums who state early in their thread that they were turned down, but then weeks or even months later come back to say they reapplied and were finally approved. Truthfully, I do not know exactly what transpired in their cases.
It makes no difference to me what monisays2u decides to do. But because he is in India, I would hate for him to delete his account and start over, as Google makes people in India age and grow their accounts for at least 6 months before they will approve AdSense. I think as long as his content is written in choppy English and contains articles that are similar to some on wikihow, Google will not approve him.
Following ComfortB's advice and applying through a blog or some other site might be best for him if he doesn't want to fix his HubPages articles.
You do not need to delete your account and start over. You can simply change the email address related to your account. In my case Adsense sent me for a loop over and over, with instructions that literally could not be followed. For example: It would tell me to log in and do this that and the other, but I couldn't log in because I had no adsense account. Their CS never responded to my emails either.
I usually don't suggest the method I did. Instead I just point people to the comments section and tell them to figure it out.
*edit* ok so I guess I misunderstood. He doesnt have the same issue as me. My fault. - My problem included a lockout and a loop of silliness after being rejected.
I wasn't really understanding your situation either. I'm glad you figured out a way to work it out. Hopefully the OP will find something that works for him, as well. He has a lot of people trying to help him. Surely one of these ideas will finally work.
Well, to put it briefly, I was rejected by adsense. They sent me instructions to reapply. When it came time to reapply, they told me to login to adsense (as one of the steps). I have a yahoo email address, which for some reason wasn't recognized and just wouldn't allow me to complete the process.
It was very frustrating. So I used my gmail account instead and simply swapped my hubpages to that email address too.
Thanks smart and fun for replying.
On my way to check grammar and reapply. I do not have other blogs or website....so this is perhaps the best path for me.
Hi cfin..Is there any solution to this problem or what is the best way to manage all this...
My hub was snipped from my comment Anyway, I was sent in circles for months until I finally created a new email account and reapplied. People (like above) can say what they like, and have my link removed, but I was just trying to help. It's my opinion, and it worked for me. Also note that not one reader of my hub said that Adsense customer service fixed their issue
Could that be because not one person who read your hub already had an adsense account?
I am in Brazil, and know, through personal experience, that you can be rejected and later approved. You do not and should not change your email.
SmartandFun is giving correct and helpful information.
Ok, thats fine. I am just stating my own experience. The fact is, that I was sent in circles by adsense and once put in this situation, my email was locked out. Their customer service is terrible and have not once returned my emails.
I wish i had received as great and smooth of an experience as those who were accepted after being rejected, but I did not. Unfortunately, i was left with no choice but to use my other email address.
*edit* ok so I guess I misunderstood. He doesnt have the same issue as me. My fault.
Google AdSense is all about game of Number. If you have big number you will get quick approve, quick more more. If you have small digit then you will not get chances to approved. You have 19 hubs, i think it is big but must be 1000 words or more for every hubpost.
I have also better experience that, my blog was disapproved even i had 90 blogpost.
Do not hurry and write more original content. You will get chaces to earn money fro Adsence.
googma, I have a small digit but was approved quickly.
So no matter what they say, size isn't everything...
Try to apply outside of hubpages. I got my adsense within 24h and then after that I linked it to hubpages.
It was about 6-7 months after joining hub pages before i was approved for adsense. I had given up and then it showed up in my email one day 'congratulations....' don't give up, it might be right around the corner!
The only words of wisdom that I can share is focus on the writing, not getting approved by AdSense. My page is very boring and I only have 12 Hubs and was approved at 10. NOT too toot my own horn, however, I had a different focus - just to get my writing posted. Sometimes that will change the way you view your writing. Perhaps set a goal for yourself, for instance: write 5 more Hubs without thinking about AdSense. Also, read a lot of Hubs!
You have to write article with quality. I have written 4 hubs with quality. You can check.
I don't think that there is any solution of this problem, because I've seen the almost similar issue same like yours on Adsense. You can't do anything about this problem, you can start again by having new account on Adsense, this would be very tough for you.
I don't understand why this has become a problem. When I first started the policy was, you could get approved after one article. I guess someone messed it up for everyone else.
Google has setup a different standard for Asian countries, specially India and Pakistan. I have published 35 Lenses on Squidoo but yet to be approved by Google. Now you can guess how hard it is for to get Adsense account approved here.
That different standard includes a six-month waiting period, no matter how many lenses or Hubs you write.
It get really wearisome when people stuff these endless Adsense threads with their own opinions, WITHOUT READING GOOGLE'S POLICY
The OP is in India. Here is what Google has to say:
"In some locations, including China and India, we require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months. We've taken this step to ensure the quality of our advertising network and protect the interests of our advertisers and existing publishers."
http://productforums.google.com/forum/# … a2LInjgN8U
So the OP, will have to wait 6 months as well as satisfying quality criteria.
Google also gives the following guidelines:
"Think about what makes your website unique, valuable, or engaging. Make your website stand out from others in your field."
http://support.google.com/webmasters/bi … swer=35769
If the OP is posting unoriginal content with photos stolen from various blogs, his hubs are not likely to be judged as "unique, valuable, or engaging" and thus will not pass Google's QA procedure.
I did point out this matter to the OP at the start of this thread, but he chose to brush away my comment. The stolen photograph is still featured on his French bun hub.
Yes, it sounds as though you were lucky, but I wouldn't get too complacent just yet.
I know someone else who got approved before the six-month period, but when it was time to send out the code by snail mail and they noticed it was an Indian address, they realized they'd made a mistake and cancelled his account.
Everyone has to verify their address, it's part of the process.
When your balance reaches $10, you'll be sent a PIN number by snail mail.
https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/ … wer=157667
The 6 month rule is clearly stated, not negotiable and applies to certain countries. Google does not specify which countries are affected, the only ones they name specifically are China and India:
http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/a … nswer=9724
It is said that most spaamers were found from Asian countries which led to the Google policy change. We are punished without any reason.
Google has different application standards for different parts of the world based on their own experiences.
Some people just want to bash others without any reason.
The issues in this thread have been a heavily repeated topic for the last three years on this site, and the only reason it nevers seems to change is people are unwilling to educate themselves. I'm not meaning to bash people, I'm just pointing out the actual problem(s) from both sides of the equation.
Taking the five to sixty seconds to look at the profile and a Hub of the person who is complaining they can't get AdSense-approved nearly always makes the reasons abundantly clear, whereas saying "huh, I didn't have that experience" is actually much less helpful.
She provided accurate and impersonal advice to everyone here. I suggest you read it again and stop taking things personally.
I would say you need more hubs and good quality targetting around the 1000 words' mark. This is not and off hand comment. I had close to 50 hubs and a 7 month waiting period before I got approved. That takes a lot of patience mind you!
So keep writing that's all I can say. And yes, the hubs have to be original.
Well maybe you were lucky. Maybe you were evaluated by a new Google Adsense employee who was unaware the 6-month rule applies to the Philippines as well.
However, if you look at other threads on this topic, you will find many denizens of India bewailing the fact they have not been approved with 20 or more hubs.
I have tried to make the point to the OP that an account with stolen photos and thin content will be unlikely to succeed.
I am not going to bother any more.
Time will tell, or maybe DMCA notices against the OP and Hubpages will do their work instead.
