I have been here for almost a year (22) months. I have 15 featured hubs now, since I edited the unfeatured ones to update it and make it longer. My article length goes from 800+ words to 1800+. I have 12,000 + views so far. After putting some work on my past hubs, I again applied for Adsense. I got the same response as before.......pls see response below.
I know the links are all there for me to find out. But could anyone in the community, please help me wade through this predicament? I am planning to do backlinking to increase my traffic, but how can I do that when Google Adsense keeps on refusing me? This is my 2nd refusal. Any comments from you would be much appreciated.
Insufficient content: To be approved for AdSense and show relevant ads on your site, your pages need to have enough text on them for our specialists to review and for our crawler to be able to determine what your pages are about.
To resolve this issue, please work through the following suggestions:
- Make sure that your pages have sufficient text - websites that contain mostly images, videos or Flash animations will not be approved.
- Your content should contain complete sentences and paragraphs, not only headlines.
- Ensure that your website is fully built and launched before you apply for AdSense - do not apply while your site's still in a beta or "under construction" phase or only consists of a website template.
- Place the ad code on a live page of your website. It does not have to be the main page, but test pages that are empty except for the AdSense ad code will not be approved.
- Provide a clear navigation system for your visitors so that they can easily find all of the sections and pages of your website.
- If you'd like to monetize YouTube videos, please apply for the YouTube monetization program (http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/a … er=2490020). Note that blogs and websites that contain only videos will not be approved.
As soon as you've made the necessary changes, we'll be happy to take another look at your application.

To update and resubmit your application, please visit http://www.google.com/adsense and sign in using the email address and password you submitted with your application. Our specialists will review your account for compliance with our program policies, so please make sure to resolve all of the issues listed above before resubmitting.

The HubPages Help page is outdated. I haven't seen anyone get approved with less than 20 Hubs for months now, and some people have needed 30.
Agreed. I also know that your location counts a lot for adsense approval. If you happen to be in Phillipines or India requirements are stricter for adsense approval. I only had five featured hubs and I got approved with no problems at all as I'm located in Europe.
The information we have posted in the AdSense FAQ is the most up-to-date information we have from Google. There's no strict minimum of Hubs required and the guideline states that no one should apply with fewer than 10 Hubs. However, your chances of approval are dependent on a number of different factors: your location (they are considerably stricter for applicants outside of the US), age of content, profile completeness, etc.
csmiravite-blogs I was really surprised that you were rejected so I contacted AdSense on your behalf. Upon second review, they decided to approve your application. You should have received an email from AdSense with login information!
I just saw this! Thank you very much! I plan to do more articles, and having Google Adsense would be a BIG Bonus! Thanks for intervening on my behalf!
How did you contact them? I was denied yesterday and do not know why. It says TOS, but I don't understand what I could have violated. I am new, so I figured if anything it would be not enough hubs, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.
See the contact information I posted here:
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121369? … ost2575185
If you do not meet all of the conditions for application, like not having enough content, you are not meeting their Terms Of Service. Or in other words which you seem to not understand when they said them to you, you are in violation of their TOS.
It's a good idea not to post the same question in multiple threads, otherwise you get confused! Don't contact Google, there's no point. The email you got was a standard one which covers all bases. Your problem is not enough content. Write some more Hubs, be patient and apply again when you have about 20.
Hi csmiravite-blogs my suggestion is that you try adding your own videos. (Hub Video) This creates a neat way for ads to show before your article is displayed. I could help you with one, if you would like, you can contact me.

You are not going to get accepted with only 15 hubs. I had written well over 50 before they accepted me. Try writing more frequently. If you have been on this sight almost two years you should have more hubs then that. They don't want to invest money into something that isn't working. Write at least an article a week or more if you can so they know you are worth their money.
I think I need to edit my articles again to do links and make it longer to around 1,000 plus. Putting videos as suggested by swilliams is a great idea too. I need to put in the numbers by increasing the number of submissions and reapply again when I have around 30 articles. Thanks much for the comment.
I had ten featured articles when I received approval by Adsense. Creating engaging articles that will capture public attention is key. This is an aspect that everyone is capable of doing. Your own unique style and insight will build traffic. I believe that you are an authentic writer you have the capability to reach your audience.
You're in Arizona, and you've been here 3 years. The rules have changed a great deal since then.
Thanks much! I read a number of your articles and they are great? What software did you use in coming up with this video?

The pacing is good, the music is nice. A real eye-catcher!

And you can use Royalty Free Music from sites suggested by Wikipedia.
It says the issue is "insufficent content."
What part of that do you not understand?
My content averages to around 850 to 900 words. I have edited most of it since my average before was only 600 to 700 words. Do I need to make it longer to more than a thousand words to qualify?
Insufficient content means not enough Hubs.
You do not have enough content. 15 Hubs is way too few.
Read what AdSense sent to you. Read their rules for your home country. None of this is a mystery, all the info you need is there, but you have to actually read it.
Btw, I saw your site and read some of your articles! Great! The stats are great too at 10m views. I'd probably look on how you are doing it and follow your path.
You don't need better hubs at this point, just more hubs.
Yep, that's what I think so too. But the video addition by swilliams is really nice. I would look at articles with videos like those. The manner of writing of relache is great too. Though I notice that his articles only hovers to around the 800+ range. The topics though are interesting unlike mine. But I am getting the views from this uninteresting topics. Hehehe! The downside is adsense keeps on refusing me. I better add some more hubs and reappply again when I have the numbers. Thanks for the comments.
I got approved last year I opened up an account three years ago but I did not start writing for Hubpages until last year.
So how long was your oldest Hub when you applied?
I had only written one Hub when I started, when I came back years later I wrote nine more featured hubs, I had to go through boot camp. This was last year. However that one Hub remained available all that time.
I'd say that made a difference - it meant that your account had age.
Hi Marisa! I like your articles on dance my daughters are dancers great information, What does age mean? The article itself perhaps?
Yes, that first article establishes the fact that you've been writing for a long time, even if you didn't have much content.
BTW I liked your Hub on asthma, and was disappointed you'd disallowed comments.
I like the article and videos on male belly dancing! First time I saw something like it.
I wrote over 40,000 words and then applied! They accepted me. They will do same to you. Just be little patient and keep writing.
Well ! I had written 25 hubs before my Adsense application was accepted. Some hubs of mine have 6 or 7 thousands words and some have three. I remained ensured that always I cross the 1500 words while writing any kind of hub.
