I applied for Google Adsense yesterday after the server error was finally fixed, but I was rejected. The email I received said:
Can someone check out my profile/hubs/anything else and let me know what I can do differently. I've been increasing the text in some of my hubs, along with bettering my "About Me" on my profile. I also linked my Pinterest account. Also, I'm really not sure what to do about the "site navigation problem" considering HP sets it all up for you.
"Insufficient content" means not enough content. Keeping going and make more hubs before applying again.
So it's not that my hubs aren't long enough, I just need more hubs. Right?
Google is a law unto itself. Nonetheless, I would say that your problems may be two-fold. Firstly, you only joined 3 weeks ago. Secondly, some of your hubs are extremely short. I didn't look at them all, but there are 2 accounting hubs which ideally need lengthening.
It comes across that you are churning these hubs out, simply to get an Adsense account. Google frowns upon what is termed, 'made for Adsense' sites.
While there will always be someone who was approved after 2 weeks and/or with 5 hubs, these people are exceptions to the rule, rather than the norm. Another factor may be the volume of traffic you are getting a day to your hubs. Are you achieving more than 50 visits?
Focus on your writing. When editing your hubs, take a look at the goals listed towards the top right of the page. HubPages suggests a minimum of 700 words for a Hub, as a goal to aim for. Also, your content must be unique and grammatically correct.

I have posted one quality Hub and Adsense keeps rejecting it as "insufficient content." There are over 1500 words, 2 pictures, 7 keywords and a link. May I have an honest opinion, please?

I took a shot at applying to Adsense with the less than 10 recommended hubs. I have four hubs, but they are rich in content. They did have a lot of images, but they were all 1,500 to 2,500 words. I removed some of the images, and will do some more hubs before I try again. Just wondering...

Forgive me if this has been suggested or discussed before, but would it be possible to put a capsule or box on each hub similar to what are on the profile page. It should be technically easy to do as those capsules seem to exist. There seems to be plenty of space, especially on longer...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...
