    Keep writing articles, reapply every few days, and you will get accepted at some stage.

    Rajan - I would wait a bit and do exactly what they said in their email - write original articles and wait six months.

    Originality is important. If they think any of your stuff is duplicated they will keep rejecting you. So pump out unique stuff and wait. In the meanwhile you can always monetize with Kontera.

    My content is original, also, this site ie Hubpages, is more than 6 months old. Mine is just a page on that site. Is my logic correct ?

      No, you will be judged on your content, not the site. It is after all your account. Listen to what they say, be patient and keep writing good quality articles.

      No. Hubpages may be older than six months, but you yourself don't have a six month record. As they are giving the Adsense ID to YOU, they want to see you produce that track record.

      Think about things from their point of view. For all they know, you have just produced five original hubs, but as soon as you have an Adsense ID you will start some blog somewhere and plaster it with copy/paste stuff. However, if you are prepared to spend an entire six months producing original stuff, chances are very high that you are NOT a copy/paster, and thus it's safe to give you an Adsense Id, because the real scammers wouldn't have the patience to wait. See?

      So be patient. If it's any consolation, the hubs don't produce much money in their first few months anyway. It's as they age that the money comes in. Ask Misha or any of the older hubbers - they will all say it took about 12 months to a 18 months before the real money came in.

    I don't know if things have changed in the last year since I got my Adsense account, but I think I got approved almost immediately by having my own domain. It was a very new blog I had just started, less than week old, so maybe having your own domain will speed things.

      The 6 month rule was added a few months ago. I was confused with their definition of site. Now i have got their point.
