Why do we have to have Adsense in order for hubpages earning program to be active and work?? What if I never get approved by Adsense will never be able to set up hubpages earning program as well???
I have 15 hubs all featured as they are all recipes they consists of around 400 words each as recipes cannot be stretched to 1000 or 1100 words or so it's just unnecessary to do so.
But the mail from Google Adsense says my legs have too little text and more pictures which makes the crawled unable to crawl the page ??
Any idea about how I can improve my content and how to lengthen my recipes and texts ??!
In addition to not having enough articles and not being here for at least a month, you have some severe problems using English.
For instance, this makes no sense:
"But the mail from Google Adsense says my legs have too little text and more pictures which makes the crawled unable to crawl the page ??"
The Hubads program is a version of Adsense, not a separate entity.
The HubPages earning program is NOT a version of AdSense.
The in-house ads use multiple ad streams to identify and serve what it thinks is the ad with the best earning potential. AdSense is one of those streams.
However, qualifying for AdSense is not easy, and by making acceptance to that program be a condition of earning here, HubPages doesn't have to do any work vetting applicants to their earnings program.
What I mean was that it include, predominantly in my observation, Adsense ads.
Ask Habee, she writes recipies and is very well accomplished here, put her name in search on the site and read a few of her hubs too - that should help answer many of your questions
I think your problem may be that your HP account is only three weeks old. Google does not publish its requirements for an AdSense account, but from what I've read in the forums here in the last six or 12 months, Google is approving AdSense for accounts that have perhaps 15-20 articles AND are at least 6-8 weeks old.
Keep writing and adding content to your account, wait several weeks and try again. If you are turned down again, repeat the writing/waiting process and apply again. You will be approved.
It is quite easy to add personal commentary to your recipes to make them longer. For example, you've done this in your fried chicken recipe with comments such as "Marination time can be as short as less than an hour depending on the schedule. Trust me it will be almost as tasty as the longer marinated one." Add in more cooking advice such as that to lengthen your recipes. For me, personally, I prefer recipes with advice from the writer, as these kinds of tips help me feel more confident that I can make it successfully myself.
Another option is to add in information about the ingredients. Again, using the fried chicken recipe, you could add a sidebar titled "Skin-on or Skin-off -- Which is Better for Frying Chicken?" and go into the pros and cons of each. On your fried chili pepper recipe, you could write a little section on the different types of chili peppers one could use for this recipe, with a description and the pros and cons of each.
You can also add commentary about serving the dish, such as "this is great to take to potlucks. Cook it the day before, transfer the stew into a slow cooking and store in the refrigerator overnight." or "This is my nephew's favorite dish. He always asks for it when he comes to visit. Of course, I am happy to oblige, and serve it to him with toasted French bread and a green salad on the side. It warms my heart to watch him eat every bite with a big smile on his face."
Wine pairings, side dish recommendations and the history of the dish or its ingredients are other ways to increase the word count of recipes.
I also suggest you double-check grammar and punctuation, as I see quite a few very small mistakes such as missing spaces and small typos. They are small but they add up.
Best of luck to you in getting approved -- you will be eventually!
Smartandfun I am grateful to you for your comprehensive advice. It's really nice to have people like you around. Thank you. I really appreciate you took time to actually go to my profile and see what's lacking. Thanks for your time and effort. I will definitely go through my hubs again and follow your advice.
