    Hi, I just want to ask if Google adsense is more strict about accepting applications from Indians?

    I am asking this because, they have continuously rejected my application 3 times till now stating that my website has inappropriate content. I don't understand what does that mean? I own two blogs one in which I write my internet Marketing reviews and the other one contains my personal writings on various topics of day to day lives.

    When I joined Hubpages, I applied for Google adsense with a new ID, but that again got rejected. Recently, I read certain hubs and questions in which people who are just 3 days old and with just 2-3 hubs written have got their google adsense approved.

    Yes, for resident Indians Google approves the application only when the site [or whatever the webpage you apply with] has a minimum history of 6 months.

    Thanks for your prompt reply webismine. I searched google forums too, for the answer. Earlier I used to think that only for personal websites or webpages they had this 6 months policy, that too worldwide. Just now came to know that it is only for India, and it doesn't matter to them even if we are writing on hubpages.

    I feel there should be some better ways of restrictions. I feel this to be really discriminatory because we are seeing other people getting accepted despite no good content in their writing.

    I hope they alter their policies soon to make things more uniform and just to all.

    Unfortunately, it is true.

    Adsense has turned wary of approving new publishers from countries like India and China due to relentless click fraud. A lot of unscrupulous people have queered the pitch for a few 'honest' publishers.

    However, a new publisher can be accepted -

    1) on a self hosted domain
    2) which is AT LEAST six months old.

    Just because someone is new to Hubpages doesn't mean that they have a new google adsense account.

    Just make self hosted site and wait for six months, during that period of time optimize your site as mush as you can, after six months your site will have good optimized  traffic and Google will definitely accept your application.

    Yes, Google needs a hubber from India have an active account for atleast 6 months during which time you should be posting hubs regularly. It has happened to me .I had 10 hubs before I applied for adsense but they rejected twice for the same reason they gave to you. Now I will apply on completion of 6 months which is far off, though I have an acoount here for 7 months now, I started writing regularly since the last month and half.

    BTW  have you got your adsense application accepted now. I see that  you have been here since 20 months now.
