    It is so sad to receive this notice:

    Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately, after reviewing your application, we're unable to accept you into AdSense at this time.

    What have I done wrong?

      Hi Evane, you have done nothing wrong-- just get hubbing. If you joined from outside US, UK, Aust etc etc; you need like 15 more hubs to be accepeted in Google Adsense program. I have 21 high quality published hubs and got the same email from AdSense; your approval depends on your location, number of hubs and may be the period you have been online.

    You've only been here for four days Evane, i'll reccommend waiting till about two - three weeks and have at least 15 to 20  high quality hubs. Make sure you edit your hubs to look more professional then re-apply

    Evane, you have done nothing to deserve than, it is because of a slight of infringement of AdSense  rules, any everybody went through that unless otherwise.

    Evane, you are located in the Philippines and Google is going to flatly turn you down until your account and content here is six months old at the minimum.

    Everyone here in the forums who says you can get your account quickly by just writing some more Hubs or in just a few weeks is wrong, as they are not giving you advice based on Google's rules for your specific home country.

      Hi Relache! oh, so a special rule applies from people coming from our country. how sad. What are the other rules? besides waiting for 6 months

    Applying with a 4 day old account.  Wait and apply again later.

    I do not think the country where you belong matters in the approval process. The main factors for approval are enough content and the age of the domain.
    Evane you will have to be patient and post more hubs over the next few weeks.
    I got my adsense approval after posting 20 hubs and when my domain was older than 6 months. Don't worry, there would be many people who would have got approval way faster than me.The best way is to add more hubs and then again submit the request and finally one glorious day you will become approved(and the approval request took at least a week in my case). So my tip is to keep writing more!!

      The country is absolutely critical.    Residents of the US, Europe, the UK and Australasia can all get an Adsense account after a month to six weeks.    People who live in Africa and Asia have to wait six months.  Those time rules apply regardless of how many articles they've written.

      I have known people in India get approved faster too, but they have usually done it by following dubious advice on how to get around the restrictions.   They eventually come unstuck, because part of the Adsense process is that they send you a PIN number by snail mail.  As soon as Adsense sees the physical address is in a restricted country, they will close the account and probably ban the person for life.

    Incorrect about what country you live in mark:
    In some locations, including China and India, we also require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months, per Google Adsense:

    This information is also at the Hub Pages Learning Center:

      6 months is too long (:

        Looking over your articles, you are unlikely to make anything the first six months anyway. Use this time to read all of the information in the HP learning center and learn from experienced Hubbers like Marisa Wright, relache, and others that contribute to the forums.
        This is not a get rich quick scheme; if you are going to participate here you should be in it for the long haul. Continue writing, and think about topics in which you have unique knowledge (like your information about the Phillipines).
        Good luck. If you continue to produce, and learn a little every day, you can be making a decent salary in a year or two.

    LindaSmith1 Could be a factor, but I have known many people from India to have gotten that approval faster. So that is why I said that. Just keep trying with more content and a bit of domain getting older and will get approved.

    Sed-me It is quite a resemblence.

    Hi Evane I just got approved after 5 weeks of painstaking rejections! You will get there I promise! I was still getting the "insufficient content" email even though I had over 100 hubs! As soon as I hit the 5 week mark though, I got instant approval - so I think google want people to gave been a member of this site for at least 4 weeks from the date of their first hub being published. Don't give up - it takes a while but it is worth it!
