Anyone else have problems getting cleared for AdSense? It keeps saying broken links and other things.
Do have an existing Adsense account to link your Hubpages to? If so, try removing any broken links in your articles. This can be easily done, as the broken link notice will appear on your article list on your account page. If you do not see that on your articles, there is a button at the bottom of the page that says "Check for Broken Links". Remove any that it pulls up. If that does not not work, maybe the links are irrelevant to the article, or over-promotional. Trying to link to affiliate pages like Amazon will flag your article.
I'm still confused. What are you doing before you see that message?
Are you going to your Earnings page, and clicking on "Google Adsense Reports"?
Or had you somehow deleted your Adsense ID from HubPages when you became inactive?
Or have you never had an Adsense account before? If you've only just applied, then the answer is simple. You've got only four Hubs - that's not nearly enough. You need at least 10 Featured Hubs before Adsense will even consider you.
Hi Marisa. Thank you for clearing this up. Yes AdSense and my hubpage have never been linked before. I'm working on a couple new pieces so I'll wait to send until I have over 10. I'm not even sure how to use AdSense or how it even works. Thanks again.
Hubpages recommends 10-15 Hubs and one month old in the U.S. (or 6 months in some countries). Google AdSense does not disclose their approval process, and sometimes holds writers to different standards. Also, Google AdSense can approve temporarily and reassess. I found I had to have about or over 15 articles before I was fully approved.

Do broken links effect Google rankings? Sometimes I'm hesitant to put informational links in articles because many seem to break over time and there may not be another good one to replace it with.

Two of my articles on PetHelpful are showing as having broken links. In the first instance, when I look at the article, the link is a picture. This link http://www.sxc.hu/photo/679862 is showing as broken but is in fact clearly showing as a black cat drinking so I think this may be a 'glitch'? In...

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

There are too many things going on right now that shouldn't be, like banning an account for someone that was editing, and the new broken links coming up with 404 errors that should have been 301 redirects.So....are there more bugs, or what's going on?

Today I have had several alerts for broken links in my hubs that turned out to be videos and all were actually working when I tried playing them,

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?
