    I joined hub pages recently and have only a few articles online. So if I am to apply for a google adsense account what would be a safe number of articles to have before applying? And is the amount of time the articles are published also a factor?

      I think you need at least 50 hubs with traffic in order to apply for Adsense, they will check your hub traffic, if low, would be rejected

        Peachpurple, if you don't know, then don't guess. It's a minimum of 10.

        https://hubpageshelp.com/money/Learning … up-AdSense

        "We recommend publishing at least 10 high-quality Hubs (entirely original and filled with useful, well-formatted information, containing at least 1,000 words and at least two images) before signing up for AdSense. It can also be a good idea to wait until your oldest Hub is at least one month old before applying."

          Thanks, I went through the advanced instructions and that really helps. It has also been mentioned that my site needs to be active for at least 6 months. Does this mean that my profile in hubpages needs to be 6 months old for me to be eligible(I don't own any blog or site on my own)?

            We can't give you a definitive answer because Google is Google. It sometimes depends on what country you are living in. All you can do is follow the basic requirements of getting at least 10 well-written hubs done, wait until your oldest hub is a month old, then apply - that means you could be approved after just one month. If you get turned down, write some more, wait a bit longer and try again.

            Based on other people's posts in this forum (whether they had trouble getting approved versus not) it seems that you need at least one featured hub that is stamped as being created at least 6 months ago.  Keeping in mind that revising the hub changes this date.

    You need to have at least 10 Hubs which are Featured (Unfeatured Hubs don't count).   Then you must wait six months to apply.

    Even after six months with ten articles, you may be declined by Adsense. If that is the case, write more articles, wait a few months, then reapply to Adsense. Remember, with Adsense, they look at traffic to your Hubs.

    I am pretty sure I'll have a lot more than 10 articles by that time. But is it mandatory to wait 6 months? That seems to be like a very long time.

    Ok....so all of these people responding must have applied a long time ago.
    I got approved for adsense two weeks ago after only have 5 articles...I have also only been on Hubpages for 3 months total. All of my hubs at the time were on Niche sites so maybe that has something to do with it but you definitely don't have to wait 6 months. Once again, I was just approved  two weeks ago so my info is probably a little more up to date. All though I do agree that if you are trying with less than 10, make sure they are good quality hubs.

      Sarah, that's because you're in the US.   There are different rules for different countries.  For the US, the waiting time is one month.  For India, the waiting time is 6 months.

      Thanks for your reply..  It does seem to vary based on article quality and duration of the article based on what I searched..  Will try applying after I have a decent amount of articles..

    All I know is I signed up for hub pages 3 months ago and am already approved but that might be the exception not the rule...

      Read the answers you are given!  Other countries must wait 6 months!

        Sudhir Devapalanposted 13 months agoin reply to this

        If it's a fixed rule then technically I wouldn't even be allowed to apply right? I assumed that the 6 month rule applies to independent blogs which are hosted by the user itself as I faced that issue while trying to apply earlier with another blog. But it would be safer to apply after 6 months I guess. No need to rush things.

          The 6 month rule applies to writers in India whether they are writing on a blog or on a writing site.

          If you still have a blog, even if you haven't written anything on it for a while, you can apply using it. 

          In fact, if you already applied with a blog, you probably won't be allowed to apply through HubPages, so I would look into that possibility first.

    I applied and my adsense was approved yesterday. I have 10 articles, I m new too. Nope there is no 6 months rule for hubspages and youtube. But you can't earn on one adsense that already linked to youtube or other blog. You need new. But that is also a problem. Adsense ToS says, you can't have 2 adsense acc. But if you have some queries Email me.

      Sudhir Devapalanposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      Thanks for the response.. No I haven't linked adsense to any other blog or YouTube.. So I am eligible to apply and be approved without any time restraint on hubpages then right?

  8. Techs and Specs profile image68
    Techs and Specsposted 12 months ago

    Yeah something like that, I m not 100% sure but mine have started earning in just few hours. Approval requires 3-5 days and then you will get a email. And mostly like 80% you will be approved.

      Thanks a lot.. This was really helpful! I want to increase my article count a bit more before applying. But knowing that there are no time restrictions is good..

    Adsense only delivers, when you are getting traffic from search engines. And if your traffic is very low (like 1000 - 2000) low cpc keywords then it's not worth to show ads on your articles, because it will return pennies and furthermore it slows page speed, which is a crucial SEO factor. i think you should wait until you get moderate visitors from search engines (say above 4k-5k a month).

    but if you have a affiliate site or article then you can start using amazon affiliate links from the day of your first visitor. thanks.

      I see ads on your single article, parvinder. Why are you giving out advice that you don't follow yourself?

  11. Marisa Wright profile image96
    Marisa Wrightposted 12 months ago

    I was given that advice when I started. Glad I didn't follow it, as I would have missed out on several months of income amounting to around $2500

    1. parvindersingh13 profile image61
      parvindersingh13posted 12 months agoin reply to this

      How many visitors you were getting? i am not saying that you have to wait for months, just wait till your website is getting 100-150 visitors a day

  12. parvindersingh13 profile image61
    parvindersingh13posted 12 months ago

    I think those ads are added by hubpages, because i didn't added any adsense account here. And, these ads are useless (i don't think they will get any clicks). Because this article has been viewed only 7-10 times and (5-6 views are mine only).

    1. theraggededge profile image97
      theraggededgeposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      You have the option to turn them off.

      The ads, as I'm sure you know, are served up to individuals according to their browsing history. Therefore, you won't see the same ads as I do.

      If you only have one hub and no Adsense enabled here, how can you give out advice about Adsense on HubPages? In any case, if a Hubber is taking part in the HP ad earnings program, only one Adsense advert is shown at the bottom of the page. If the Hubber selects to turn off the HP program, then Asense will serve up all the ads on the page.

      You can earn from HP with only a few hundred visitors, so don't tell people not to activate the earnings programs, otherwise, as Marisa says, they could lose out.

      You must check your facts before handing out advice to new Hubbers.

        parvindersingh13posted 12 months agoin reply to this

        Adsense on Hubpages or Adsense on a blog (are not different), there might be a small CPC difference. So, having only one hub doesn't mean that I don't know about how Adsense works? Earning from Adsense means you need views (social or search traffic). Publishing 10-20 hubs with low traffic and enabling Adsense, is of no use (1 hub and 80-150 visitors is good enough ).

        1. theraggededge profile image97
          theraggededgeposted 12 months agoin reply to this

          Because HubPages is a platform and a collection of niche sites. There are no longer any sub-domains allocated to individual hubbers. Therefore, it makes no difference to Adsense how much traffic an individual gets to his/her hubs. You might have one hub doing 5k per day and the rest doing less than 50 put together. It makes absolutely no sense to disable Adsense because of low traffic.

          Adsense on HP is different to a blog or personally-owned website - because of the HP revenue-sharing program. You can't be part of it unless you have Adsense enabled. Your earnings will come from HP, not from Adsense.

          HP pays you wherever traffic comes from: social media, internal, direct clicking on an external link. Of course search engines are a huge source of traffic, but they are not the only source.

          In any case, if you haven't applied for Adsense before, you won't be approved with only one hub, however much traffic it gets.

    Well, you have to have at least 10 unique articles (300 words or more) for each one and then you can apply for Adsense. This rules apply to here and anywhere else like your personal blog or niche website.
