Earlier this week, I posed a question on what I could do to get approved through Google Adsense. I wasn't approved because of "Difficult Site Navigation" ... turns out, I have too many redirects to other sites. Specifically, these are Caloriebee and Heal Dove, the Hubpages Network sites. I was quite honored to have 5 of my hubs moved to those sites (I've only written 10). I realize I have very few hubs written so far, so I don't expect to make any earnings for a while. However, I wonder if I'll ever get approved because of the redirects? I feel as though, in a way, it's a punishment to have your articles transferred because Google Adsense sees that as detrimental. AND on top of that, one cannot earn through Hubpages earning programs without a Google Adsense account. That is unfair.
I would love to contact Hubpages directly to ask them to reconsider their policy on earning. I absolutely understand that Hubpages is not a "get rich" platform. I truly love writing for Hubpages. I love the format and the ease with which I can publish articles. However, I'm not sure if I should pursue another venue if this is ultimately a dead-end. Should I just try to use Amazon's affiliate program instead of Hubpages'? Can you earn at all by having your articles moved to the network sites? (Some incentives for good writing would be nice!)
Thanks for any suggestions!

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

I just read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it.

Are ad settings totally controlled by HubPages or do the settings in my Adsense account have a bearing on what will be displayed? If so, is it a good idea to select categories relevant to a niche site?
