Need help understanding notification from Google AdSense

    I'm going to include as many details as I can.

    I received an email from Google stating my application was rejected for insufficient content. Even with the number of hubs I have, I understand they might need some tweaking. But some other notices (here at Hubpages) makes me think it might not be just my hub content.

    Under my account, the Ad Program shows the status is "Not active". When I click "configure" the list says the Adsense part is complete but the "associate a Google Adsense account" is incomplete. I click on that and mark that I already have a Google account. That's when this message pops up.

    "It appears that your Google AdSense Account, with the publisher id ca-pub-2204779270253875 is no longer associated with HubPages. Your application may have been rejected by Google, you may have refused the association with www.hubpages.com through the AdSense Account Access Page, or your previosuly approved account may have been disabled due to violations of the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions. You should not apply again, as each person is only allowed to have a single Google AdSense Account."

    How do I associate my number with Hubpages?

    I'll play around and see if I can figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      I tried signing into my Google Adsense account and got this message - "Associated with a disapproved AdSense application" because the account violated the TOS. I never got an email telling me anything other than the ones saying about insufficient content. HELP!

        Your profile says you've only been here for 2 weeks. Success here involves a combination of the number of hubs and the amount of time they've been published. I suggest you wait a few weeks.

          Thanks. I've been doing some searching and found other people in other places saying the same thing.

          One of my friends told me the same thing this morning. I don't remember having used this one before, but anything is possible. She suggested using another email addy. I think I'm going to wait a while and try again. If I still get turned down, I'll probably try my other one. I just wish the notices in the emails and what the one on the hubpage account said the same thing. It all seems confusing to me. On the bright side, if I ever get it figured out, I'll be able to help some other new person if/when they have to go through the same thing.

              That brings up something I didn't think about. Does the email addy have to be G-mail or can it be any email server?

            Sheila, does that mean you had another Adsense account at one time?

            You do know that you're only ever allowed to have ONE Adsense account, which you use for all sites?

              No. I've never signed for Adsense before. Musadiq said try another gmail ID and I was wondering if to sign up for Adsense it has to be gmail. Probably a stupid question since I used hotmail and  the notices about insufficient text or whatever to that account. I'm just trying to cover all the bases.

                Nope, it doesn't matter what the email address is.

                    Indeed, this might be your problem.  You need to revive your first (primary) account.  Trying to open more than one account can get you banned on both accounts.  They do track users by IP.

      Recently, Adsense increased their qualification threshold.  You're unlikely to be approved until you've been here a month, so wait and try again then.

      The message you got is the standard message so don't worry about it.

        Thanks. I guess I'm getting a little over-eager.

          Meanwhile please browse through Google Adsense Forums as well. They often prove helpful, as it helped me a lot in finding some answers to the questions I had.

    Go to 'my earnings' under your name and then open up the tab on the left which says settings.

    I wouldn't think you'd have to have a gmail account.

    I had an adsense account with another site before starting on hubpages last month. I put my info into the external affiliate settings slot and everything was okayed. Then today, I went to the adsense program and found that I didn't have hubpages listed as a web site, so I changed what I had to hubpages, now it says I'm missing something.

    Others have said that they make more from the hub pages ad program than from google's adsense program. I don't know as I've haven't made enough to compare the two yet.
