I'm getting really pissed off at Google...they say 10 featured hubs.
I gave them 12.
You say long hubs.
Many of mine are 1500 words.
You say depends n what country.
I'm in the frickin U.S.
Just curious what the teeming masses did about this drama.
Hubpages needs to update that 10. I applied to google every two hubs I wrote and got denied until I reached 19 hubs.
Just keep going you will get there. 10 hubs used to happen in the past but Google tightened the restrictions about a year ago.
Very frustrating, BigJulesMags. Getting adsense approval was the hardest thing I went through after joining HP. I almost quit at one point but hung in there. I think I had ten hubs, don't recall. But it took around three weeks of back and forth confusion and new gray hairs. I ended up applying through my business website and adding HP. Don't ask me how to do it but I figured out that you can circumvent the madness if you already have a website recognized by Google. I wish you luck, it will happen soon.
I got adsense in December 2009, one week after joining Hubpages and with only 3 hubs.
3 posts on a blogger blog a week old.............. but that was years back..... so that will not help you..
BUT don't worry, if it takes you 20 hubs and 3 months..... It takes time to start earning; until you start to generate decent levels of traffic you are not going to see income. Most people here have to wait 9 months or more and publish a few dozen hubs minimum before they start to earn anything like enough to begin to see payout.
So stop worrying and just keep publishing, when the traffic starts to rise start applying!
Seriously, Google own Blogspot, so I would still, even now, start a blog and apply for Adsense through it.
I would start a new blog on a niche topic - something you know about.
Whether that is gaming, or romancing, or dancing, or gardening or whatever. Choose a title that reflects your niche, and post away.
The SERPS are favoring niche blogs at the moment. Maybe Adsense does too,
Once you have that magic code, it is easy to link it to HP.

I'd like to consider myself an asset to the hubpages community. Although I began relatively recently, I have over a dozen published hubs, and I even won the rising star award for one of them. I have applied...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is...

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account...

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied...
