    I just received a message from Adsense that they rejected my application due to insufficient content. The message is as follows:

    Insufficient content: To be approved for AdSense and show relevant ads on your site, your pages need to have enough text on them for our specialists to review and for our crawler to be able to determine what your pages are about.

    There are 17 featured articles in my hub and each article has 1200 words, still, they are saying insufficient content.

    Please suggest how to resolve this.
    Thanks for your help.

      Hi there,

      It might be because Google require 20 or more. Sometimes they have more stringent requirements for different countries. I'm sure I read somewhere that 20 - 25 is normal.

      There is no exact amount that Google considers "sufficient".  10 good articles used to generally be enough, but now 20 or even 30 might not do it.  Also you want at least on of the hub to demonstrably be more than 6 months old.

    I just took a quick look at your profile, MKishor, and I noticed a couple of titles that are grammatically incorrect. This would be enough for Adsense to dismiss your work as insufficient quality.

    Is Your Kids Getting Lower Marks in Exams?

    Would be better as: Are Your Children Achieving Low Marks in Their Exams?

    Conflicts at Workplace? Resolve it Amicably

    Would be better as: Conflicts in the Workplace? Resolve Them Amicably

    Lose the & in The Fox & the Broken Bridge; always use 'and' - in titles and in the text.

    Hope that helps.

      Thanks for your suggestion, I will update the titles.

      But I am just wondering why Adsense team is saying "Insufficient content", it can be "Insufficient Quality" if that is the case??

        Yes, it certainly can.

    Your articles seem to be posted recently I just noticed several of them are posted a few hours back. Maybe that is also a reason.

    I would imagine that is a canned response, algorithm created and sent.

    What it probably means is that you need to do something more than just a bunch of hubs.

    Depending on what country you are from, there could be other requirements.

    You might create your own website, wait 6 months, then reapply with that.
