    I am not approved yet for GAdsense. Is there any way to get compensated here on HP without GAdsense? How can we earn from Amazon or ebay? Please help me. Thanks.

    I've been trying to get approved for over a month. Last notice I got back indicated that I was declined for TOS violations. Terms of service .... Upon investigating this, I found that none of my hubs were in violation of their terms of service. This is more trouble than it's worth. Hubpages is a waste of time and my understanding is that most people don't make much money through this service. I think I'm going to write a hub about Google and then resubmit my application. I wonder how much traffic I can get by slandering Google wink

      Hi UMChamps,

      Unfortunately the Learning Center here at HP doesn't go into much detail about applying for AdSense, and they refer to it as "signin up" rather than applying. AdSense seems to be getting more and more strict and picky about those it will accept. It is not simply a matter of "signing up."

      AdSense doesn't publish what their requirements are, but from what I can gather based upon forum posts like yours, when it comes to HubPages accounts, they are accepting people who have had their account at least a month or two, and have around 20 or so articles posted.

      I think your articles are titled well for SEO and are the kinds of articles that would do well here and online in general. You're just jumping a little bit ahead of yourself. Give your account another month or so of age, and publish about ten more articles, and apply for AdSense again. (But leave off the one bashing Google.) I think you will be approved.

      As far as a TOS violation, it might be that you are using photos that are copyrighted.

      Hang in there, keep writing, and you will get your AdSense approval. Even if you leave HubPages, you will still need an AdSense account to earn online. I think your articles will do well online, so don't give up so quickly. I don't think anyone is getting rich here, but if you end up with some popular articles, you could earn a nice little chunk every month once your articles take off. It takes more work in the beginning, which for you is right now. It can pay off in the long run, though.

      Best wishes.

      You can get banned for slander, so good luck with that strategy.

      ANY disqualification from their program is referred to by AdSense as a TOS violation because you are supposed to have read all their rules and service terms and not applied until you were pretty certain you would pass their application procedure. 

      10 Hubs that are less than new month old is not a well-established web presence in their eyes.  You need more content, more like 40 Hubs, and they should all have been published for a minimum of 6-8 weeks.

      You've been here only four weeks.   Google doesn't say so, but there are two requirements for Adsense:  one is number of Hubs, and one is time.   I've never seen anyone approved for Adsense within their first four weeks here.   Give it a week or two, write a few more Hubs and apply again, and I bet you'll get approved.

    umchamps:  Slandering google in a hub is a good way to have yourself banned from Hub Pages.  http://hubpages.com/help/user_agreement

    Was the reason for being declined detailed as a TOS violation on the rejection email or just on hubpages?  If it specifies this in the email then you need to check through your hubs however I expect you're just seeing this on hubpages and the email advises lack of content.  I was accepted with 15 hubs after five weeks.  I have written a hub on the topic of Adsense acceptance too if you want to check it out.

      Thanks for the replies.I appreciated your effort to help me understand more about Adsense.

      Best regards to all.

      Why is it that everyone believes that they can write for 5 minutes online and then they are entitled to shower in cash?

      Google makes it hard to sign up so as to weed out those that are not going to be in it for the long run...

      Depending on what you read you may have to wait 3-6 months and publish 20-30 hubs....

      Even when you have been approved you may still be waiting for a year before you start to see any traffic and after that you are still not going to be getting rich!

      Making money online is a full time job if you are looking for a full time income!

        What you say is true, but in their defense, the Learning Center makes it sound easy-breezy lemon-squeezy to "sign up" for AdSense. Check it out: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/signup-AdSense

        HP finally changed the recommendation of ten hubs to 20-25, but it still refers to ten at one point. The Learning Center page on AdSense also includes language such as "Google AdSense has made it very simple to sign up" and "If you don't already have a Google AdSense Publisher ID, you can apply for one after you've published a few quality Hubs."

        There is a bit included about getting turned down, but not much, and it is at the end. I can see how people might miss it.

      The only spot that I have adsense is here because I need it to earn from HP programs.  IMO to make money, the money is in the sales.

      All one needs to do is search Google Adsense which has their rules, how to apply, etc.
