Hey all! I'm a new Hubber here, and I was silly and signed up for Google AdSense, and was very quickly denied because, clearly, I have "insufficient content". They're happy to look at my application again once I actually have enough content for them to look at, but before I saw the email, I only saw that I had a TOS violation.
Panicking and looking around the forums, I saw that people were suggesting that some TOS violations came from Hubs having sources. As Hubs are articles, a lot of them require sources in order to be justifiable.
I was wondering if using sources and links within your Hubs could be the reason behind Google ASense TOS violations. I'm also wondering how certain articles get around this issue if they are so inclined to use sources?
It depends on what "sources" they were talking about.
As for your current featured hub, the only links I can see are the Flickr image credits and they're fine.
You write interesting content, just keep it up and reapply when you have about 30-50 good hubs.
You can learn more about what's allowed and not allowed on Google adsense here:
This would also help.
Welcome to HP (forgot to say it on my first reply )
I never saw that many mentioned before. I just checked at this site:
and it says the number that I recommended.
Ok. While looking around, I did see that some people had gotten to around 30 Hubs and were still denied from AdSense, but that may have been due to other violations. Thanks!
Another good thing about publishing at least 30-50 hubs before you reapply is it gives some time for your hubs to mature on Google. They're more likely to accept matured content over super new content.
Using sources and linking to sources is not a problem unless you also break a rule like he 'no more than two links to one URL' rule
Does that mean multiple links directing towards different parts of the same site? For instance, linking to the homepage and also the FAQ page?
Welcome to HubPages Abby.
You still applied to AdSense to early but did you know that you have to apply to HubPages ads first? This section of FAQ may help you understand: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubp … am-and-ads
When you have written about 15 - 20 Hubs then AdSense may accept you with no problem.
Welcome to the hubber way of life. You're just going through boot camp, initiation process or probation. You'll get through it :-)

Hi,I do not why Google is not approving my Adsense application. Am from India and I heard that people from India should wait minimum 6 months to apply for Adsense. Also they should have published minimum 10 hubs. I have done all these things. But when I apply to Adsense, am not getting approved....

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from my fellow music Hubbers as well. If you've written any Hubs about music (any kind...

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...
