    Hello there,

    So I just started hubbing, but I've gotten out of the bootcamp phase. I applied for Google Adsense and was disapproved - twice. I read all the possible problems that I could fix that was sent to my e-mail, but my articles seem to abide by all of them. What do I do?

      You only have 6 hubs so you need more content before you can be approved.

      Some people say you need at least 25 hubs.

      My AdSense was approved through Blogger years ago.  I think it's easier to be approved through Blogger than anywhere else, but even then, you have to build up content before they will approve you.

      Sorry that Google has not approved your application.
      It could be related to the amount of content that you had when you applied.
      Double check that you are using the correct URL for your subdomain,

      In general, 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 including quality and other aspects they do not publicly disclose.

      So many short Hubs might not work as well as fewer longer and more in-depth Hubs. I think a month and at least 10 Hubs of good length could be a good starting point.

      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!

      Please consult the "rejection" email sent to you by Google. It will give you instructions to fix whatever issue caused the disapproval and give you instructions on how to reapply. If you still have questions about the disapproval, you should respond to that email to reach the AdSense support team who will be able to address the issue.

      Fewer than 10 high quality original posts will get that result.  I just posted my 1st hub yesterday and even though it got a 74 score, I have not earned anything.  So work on increasing your hub number and quality.  When you have 10, apply. 

      All the best!

      You will generally need 20-30 featured hubs to get Adsense these days.

      Hello. The quickest and easiest way of being approved by Adsense is to join WebAnswers. I wrote a hub that explains how," Make Top Dollar From Home. Online or Socializing." They are a questions and answer site in which you get paid through Adsense by answering questions. After answering a few questions for free, as long as you use good grammar, and are well written, Adsense will approve you.

      I will give you an inspiration for you not to fall out of confidence here:

      When I first joined hubpages, i thought it would be very easy to start earning but I was too wrong. So I followed every step here.

      1. Create my hubs (25-35 hubs)
      2. Put correct citation and sources of photos and info
      3. Check my grammar with ginger every time I post
      4. Then I apply for adsense

      But I was disapproved, almost 30 times! 30 times, I was about to give up but no, I don't wanna waste my efforts so i decided to continue. After 8 months of hubbing here, finally google approve my adsense. And now it was my for months after being approved by adsense, I am about for my very first redemption.

      So my advice is, write, high quality hubs. I suggest your hub must contain 500 words above for it to be featured all. I  don't allow my hubs to be not featured because it does not create traffic so it would be just a waste.

      if you are outside US, you better wait for six month just like what I did. Good luck smile You can do it.

    Your account is too new.  You have been here nine days and have six Hubs. 

    Google wants to see an established web presence that demonstrates the content you are creating is going to draw readers and thus earn them money.  Until they see you have enough content and traffic, they will continue to say no.  Reapplying frequently can hurt your future chances.

    Keep writing Hubs until you have 50 and have been here at least three months.  Then reapply.

    Thank you all so much for the advice! Admittedly though it is a little strange that there isn't a definitive time frame or number. I've heard that it had to be minimum 10 hubs and then...well...ah, who knows? Thanks again! I'll continue hubbing! I've got a few more in mind big_smile

      If you'd heard that a minimum of 10 Hubs was required, why did you apply with only six?   

      Google is a law unto itself, and it's annoyingly secretive about many things.  The best thing to do is look at the actual experience of other Hubbers.  If you look back through the forum, you'll find countless threads where people are asking exactly the same question.  Based on how they eventually succeeded, the best advice is to continue until you have 20 Hubs and have been Hubbing for a month or two - then you'll have a much better chance of success.

    If you want a Adsense account start a blog on or and make a couple posts and apply for the adsense. I have three adsense accounts have never been dissapproved for a single one. And I use the same method of getting one everytime.

      If there was a 'like' button, I'd hit it. I have no idea why people don't go to the google owned blogspot (blogger) even before they start writing at hubpages...

      Marisa Wrightposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      That's interesting.  I thought you were allowed to have only one Adsense account at the same address, let alone in a single name.  How did you manage it?

    You wont get approved with only six hubs.  You have to keep writing.  I was well over 30 or 40 before they approved me.  They should stipulate that when you sign up for the programs.

      I just checked.  Definitely "illegal".   An individual can have only one Adsense account.

      I'd quietly delete two of them if I were you.  If you get discovered, you could get banned altogether.

    I'd keep that quite if I were you, it is meant to be one person one account.

    Hi Whitney try not to bother too much about AdSense at the moment. I'm also new and if you think about it having AdSense now would still be pretty useless as we do need to work on writing more hubs, promoting our articles, and getting traffic to really be able to make money.

    Definitely wish there was a better way about this, but...whatever. Thank you all big_smile ! I feel as if a glass of wine is needed with this AdSense nonsense.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image85
      Marisa Wrightposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      It's not nonsense, really - the only thing that is nonsense is that Adsense doesn't give a definite number.  But they DO recommend 10 Hubs minimum and HubPages state that in the Learning Center.

      Adsense gets so many thousands of applications every day, they could easily set a much higher bar for approval if they wanted.

    I went through your profile. You are a new writer here. But does not matter. To get approved with adsense, I can suggest few points based on my experience.

    1. Add more content (hubs) with quality
    2 . This will naturally bring good traffic
    3 . Active in Hubpages regularly

    You published 10 hubs with in 2 weeks. this is actually a great thing. continue the same ... and wish you all the best

    Do you have pics to support your articles or poems? Do you mention the sources under the pics? Even though your writings are getting featured there still may be room for improvements. Sometimes Google will wait until you have at least 20 or more hubs featured so, just keep writing good content with good pictures especially your own pics and you'll get approved perhaps, after 20 or more are featured.

      too many pics actually lowers your chances for Google approval

  13. word55 profile image68
    word55posted 10 years ago

    1, 2 or 3 pics are enough but they should name the source if pics are posted.

    You wont be approved for just 12 hubs.  Keep writing.  I was way over 30 before I was approved.

    Really? I was approved straight away and had only written about 3 articles. Maybe there is something wrong in the set up details.

    I made it past the initial review with 12 hubs. It seems that you need enough content so that your *profile* pops up on the search engine rather than the articles themselves.
