I am also confused about Amazon, ebay? Are they related to the google account or a different one?
as I am very new to this stuffs. .. Thanks
What country are you in? Some will not get an approval unless the account is 6 months old.
I am from from India. Well i have been here for a year already, but I was busy in other stuffs, trying to be more active here.. hope i got the approval soon!
Sorry, but Google has strictest policies for people in Asia and even then if you are form India or Pakistan, it gets all the more difficult. I'm from India as well and still I've not got accepted by adsense program. I have 18 featured hubs. I think, being an Indian, you should at least publish 50 high quality hubs before applying for the Adsense program. I'm not joking brother, Its a fact that many Indian bloggers and Hubbers are facing problems with the Adsense policy as Asia turned out to be the biggest spamming hub after the Google Panda Update. So, publish at least 3-4 hubs a week and wait till you reach the mark of at least 50 'Featured' hubs.
I hope it helped
For AdSense, more content is usually better. Although, there isn't a specific amount of content that AdSense requires, it appears that they are not as concerned with number of Hubs as total content.
So a bunch of short Hubs might not work as well as fewer longer and more in-depth Hubs.
I think a month and 15-20 Hubs of good length could be a good starting point.
Please keep in mind that since we are not privy to the entire Google AdSense application process, all of our suggestions are guidelines and should not be taken as Google gospel!
As @psycheskinner mentioned, AdSense treats some coutnries a bit differently.
AdSense, the Amazon Affiliates program, HPAds, and eBay are different programs (although some require other programs as well).
You can find more information about each here.
Check out the articles in the "How to Make Money on HubPages section"
for each program.
As you mentioned in your profile that you are from India, people from Asia need to wait at least 6 months before they can apply for Adsense. You can write a few more hubs meanwhile. Ebay and Amazon are different options not related to Google Adsense....
Do I have to create an account for ebay and amazon as well?
If you're looking to make money here, then yes, waiting until after the 10 published hubs mark is a good idea. Go ahead and apply for Goodle AdSense and if you're approved, that can be a source of income for you here.
eBay and Amazon are separate potential income sources... for those programs, you insert "capsules" - which are boxes where you'll select the merchandise that people can choose to buy or bid on. Their income reports are also separate.
Google probably won't accept your application until you have at least 20 hubs, and they may have a tine restriction as well. Their standards have changed, and Hubpages has failed to update their information on it. I have 15 hubs, and my application was just rejected. I have heard this elsewhere in Hubpages as well.
I've seen people get accepted in less than a month with under 20 hubs.
Personally I've been at it for five weeks. I wasn't accepted at 17 hubs, hoping that will change when I resubmit at 20.
Ah I decided to try again at 19 and got accepted. Just passed the threshold! Hope that helps.
Which link do we have to provide when creating adsense account? Do we have to enter the link to our profile or the link of a particular hub?
Cheers and Bravo for reaching the milestone of 10 featured hubs!
I will be sure to stop in, and I have no doubt, will be glad I did.
Here is all the best for you, as I raise my glass and wish you many more.

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

Let me be honest with you, I joined Hubpages in the hope that I will be able to earn some extra income to supplement my college expenses. I know there is no such thing as easy money and I shouldn't expect to live off my earnings on hubpages. But, If I get a good number of my hubs featured, how much...

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I have published 21 featured hubs. And then I applied for Google AdSense. But it did not approve my account saying "Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately, after reviewing your application, we're unable to accept you into AdSense at this time. We did not approve your...
