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.

Broken links used to be highlighted in yellow, not it seems they are not? This makes it much harder to find and fix them. I am using Firefox, is it any better in any of the other browsers.
