    I'm still new to AdSense and all that, but the first impression I got (especially after reading what other Hubbers have to say) is that once you're approved, all your Hubs will have AdSense ads. I got my approval email, but only a couple of my hubs are generating clicks. Does Google need to approve all my hubs separately?

    Is this supposed to happen? Or is there any way I can get AdSense ads to show on all my hubs? Any help is much appreciated!

      I went through a few of your hubs and see that there are ads on them. If your hub isn't showing ads it could meant it's not featured or there are sensitive material on the hub and HP turned off the ads.

      If you are referring to the in-content ad which is placed within the text area, that ad wont show until you have more than 100 views on your hub.

      No, you do not need your hubs to be individually approved by Adsense.

      I'm not understanding what you mean about a few of your hubs generating clicks. Not all your hubs will generate clicks. Some people's hubs never generate clicks. If you opted into the HP Ad program, you get paid by impressions (the amount of visits to your hub) and not by clicks.

    I had no idea that the adsense ads in the content of the hub wouldn't show until the hub has 100 views. No wonder my new hub isn't showing any ads.

    Is this new, or has it always been this way?

      Once the hub is published without any violations there will be ads on it, only the in-content ad will be missing until you have over 100 views, all other ads will be shown. Check to make sure your ads aren't turned off.

    Hi ,

    I also want to activate Google ad-sense ! Can anyone please tell how to activate it means what is the criteria for it on hub pages. If there is any foundations of number of hubs that i should publish or not. Kindly suggest me.

      It's not so much HubPages criteria as it is Google's criteria. As I understand it, it used to be relatively easy to get an AdSense account, but not now not so much.

      The most important thing to do is make sure you have quality content and a decent amount of it. HubPages recommends that you have at least 10 published hubs before applying, but I had 15 hubs when I applied. You also want to make sure you have a completed profile (it's best if it has a picture, but I don't think this is a "must have").

      You can follow the instructions under "Settings" in "My Earnings" to apply for AdSense. Otherwise, you can just Google search "AdSense" and do it all from there. I'm not sure how long takes to get approved outside of America (I see you're from India). I've heard some say it takes about six months. If anyone knows differently, please correct me.

      Anyway, I think that's about it as far as applying goes!

        Thanks TwerkZerker for you reply.  I will try to add more quality hubs before applying . After 20 hubs would be the best and this long duration scksss..

      It takes around six months to get approved from India and you need something like 20 hubs. The more quality hubs you have the better chance you have. I see you've been here 7 months already. I think you should add more hubs to your account and try applying after 20 hubs.

      You must have adsense to be able to earn from the Hp earning program.

    In my experience using adsense for blogs and youtube channels its really unreliable.

    Google often shows 0 views per day on adsense when I know from youtube stats that I get roughy 50 views per day and my blog gets roughy 10. These don't show up.

    It only seems to start working when I have a spike in views and then the number is correct. For small numbers of views adsense seems useless.

      Why would you expect adsense to show you views? Adsense is all about CPM. If your views aren't enough to earn you anything or you haven't generated any clicks you wont see anything on adsense. You need to use analytics for views on your blogs and videos. I also suggest using the built in analytics for blogger.

        I use the built in analytics on each of the platforms before I go to adsense, however on the adsense screen it has a views column along with the click, CTR and CPC columns, This views column often shows far less then I would expect when compared to the other analytics software.
