Ad Sense account disapproved.

    Hi all Hub writers,
    I tried to get Ad Sense account after publishing almost 20 Hubs. But it was disapproved by showing that insufficient content and difficulty in navigating to my site. I have used the link http//username.hubpages.com.

      Sorry for the setback, chithuunni. Rest assured you're not alone and this takes a long time for many people (it's not fun, but at least you're not alone!).

      I suspect the problem may be your English.  I scanned a couple of your Hubs and your grammar needs some work - there is even a title which has bad grammar ("How Safe Research Chemicals Are?" should be "How Safe are Research Chemicals".

        Hi,
        Thanks for the input but I think, the term insufficient content has some other meaning. Secondly, I know the sequencing in the title is not grammatically correct but you know there is a bit difference between what we write in the text and the words of a title with a punch. In that way I feel that title is considerably fine,

          Why don't you try taking an online grammar course...they are free and will remind you of the basics before you even write comments.  You are not making sense.

    As far as they can see you have 14 (featured) hubs.  That is probably not enough these days.

    all the while Adsense has ads posted on accounts like mine while I don't get paid a penny. Very convenient for Adsense,making money off me and those not approved.....something bad wrong with this picture

    1. psycheskinner profile image84
      psycheskinnerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      The ads are placed there by Hubpages and the earnings go to them.  You can open the hub and turn the ads off if you wish.

      Since the average Adsense earning per 1,000 views is somewhere between $1-$3, I doubt they're making a stack off you wink

    Don't lose hope! I started my adsense account through my youtube. It took several tries and a lot of work before I was approved. You will get there. Try adding more featured hubs, get more attention to your page and then apply again.

  6. DennisDo profile image67
    DennisDoposted 5 years ago

    I agree with Stitch. Making money via Adsense (especially on Hubpages) will be tough. That's not to discourage you though. It is possible, but you have to keep publishing hubs and stay consistence with posting articles.

    try to add some more fresh content.Also check the all contents are contain more than 1000 words.Try to submit some more hub entry (ex : 25) and then try once again.Hope that time your account will be accepted.

    It is really hard to join adsense that is the point. Like you, you had already published 20 hubs but still you were disapproved.

    1. psycheskinner profile image84

      Most likely only featured hubs would be counted.

  9. yupperclub profile image73

    Maybe if you publish more originally, unique hubs, creating better quality, instead of publishing hubs just for the numbers, Google would take your application more seriously.

    Sign up answer 50 questions and you get invited to adsense. Assuming you answered these questions well and avoided any content with alcohol, tobacco, drugs or sex you should be approved. I posted this in a recent forum, it is probably the easiest way to gain your adsense account.

      You can't use promotional links on the forum. And you could've at least tried to make it a little less obvious.

          LucidDreamsposted 5 years agoin reply to this

          I have heard Webanswers is fairly easy to get an adsense account with. I already had one when I signed up. It also could be a decent place to earn if you are active. Hubpages has been harder to earn with the last couple of years as they have focused more on Hubpages ads and have lost a lot of love with search engines.

          Weebly has a 2.0 platform that if you create a free website and attach a blog, you could get some decent traffic if you are active. They have a pretty high adsense approval rating also.

            I may look into the webanswers. They are very vague and confusing with how they work, though.

            1. LucidDreams profile image69
              LucidDreamsposted 5 years agoin reply to this

              The best way from my experience working with webanswers is to be consistant each day. Answer questions which are related to topics such as finance, real estate and other decent paying adsense terms.

  11. John Jason Hosac profile image60
    John Jason Hosacposted 5 years ago

    I am not trying to be sneaky about it....it is not promotional when I am not selling anything. It may be promoting another site yes, but how many hubs here promoted a particular item etc? It is the easiest way I have found to get an adsense account and with how many posts I see with people complaining about not being accepted by adsense I thought I would shed some light on this with the hopes that people would use my referral as it does not hinder them in anyway or decrease their earnings etc.

    Why would I be sneaky about it, I rarely click on shortened links because that is sneaky unless its a twitter feed or something. So perhaps some people in this world are not dishonest. Thanks for the heads up. I am trying to solve a problem for some people, it worked quite well for me.

    1. John Jason Hosac profile image60
      John Jason Hosacposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Sadly I have gotten a couple dozen referrals through here or other avenues but only about 10% of those answered more than 10 questions let alone the 50 required. It took me a night to answer that many questions in a thoughtful manner at least. Kind of pathetic in my honest opinion, I give everyone a clear path to get their adsense account and people can not put in the effort when they can sit here and complain about it?

      Webanswers is a decent source of income if you are active on an almost daily basis. It may even be a good place for ideas for hubs etc.

      1. jericho911 profile image89
        jericho911posted 5 years agoin reply to this

        So you can use the adsense acct that you get there and place it on other pages ? If so, then you definitely just helped out newbies like myself.

        1. John Jason Hosac profile image60
          John Jason Hosacposted 5 years agoin reply to this

          Yes sir, I use the adsense account that I received from webanswers on youtube, blogger.com. webanswers and of course here. You can also use it on your own sites but that requires additional approval. Any hosted content like the above that I mentioned you are free to use your adsense account without further approval. So if you dont mind using my referral link for pointing you in the right direction, I would appreciate it :-)

          By the way, make sure to avoid any questions that pertain to questionable content like drugs, alcohol, sex, tobacco etc.

          I would stick to whats your favorite color, where should I visit when I travel here. Those kind of questions that would not pertain to anything seen as potentially adult oriented by google.

            I'm sorry but i already have an acct on webanswers. i answered 25 questions and just stopped because i was confused. I would have used your link otherwise. Thanks for the help. I'll check out your hubs.

              It is a bit misleading as well because it sounded to me like I needed to be awarded 50 times not just answer 50 questions. It turned out that after I answered 50 questions I was sent an invite for adsense though.

    I have 17 hubs all but one is featured and I got turned down too.  I understand from the forums that now they want somewhere between 20 and 35, all featured, before they will approve you.  So keep trying, as I am.  Someday we will both make it.  :<)

    We are same I have also apply forn Google Adsense when I have write my 20 hubs, 13 featured, two of them evergreen content, but the email sent to me that your application was disapproved because of insufficient content. Now I will reapply when I reached my 30 hubs and to write more high quality hubs. Because quality matters not quantity.

  16. ketage profile image83
    ketageposted 5 years ago

    I waited until i had 18 hubs and more then 1k views before applying to adsense, it took about 6 weeks of work, I tried to make all my hubs interesting in the hope that google found it of high enough quality to approve my application. 
    Only advice I can give is,  write more hubs, maybe add some photos, polls, videos. and make sure you have as few spelling and grammatical errors as possible. Then try again.

  17. madscientist12 profile image94

    I have 11 hubs so far, all of them are featured and I haven't been approved for an adsense account yet so I guess I'll just keep writing....

    Same for me, rejected for insufficient content, read somewhere that we have to hit at least 25-30 featured hubs that are 'well rated' and be around for at least 6 months under googles new rules.
