How long does it take to get an Adsense account approved these days?

    I have been using Adsense for a few years now and trying to get my partner to join.

    I am curious as to how long it takes these days to get approved?

    Also does anyone have any tips for getting your account approved quickly?  I remember reading some time ago, all you needed to get an account was sign up for blogger and make a few blog posts.

    Is that still the case?

      Make a few hubs before applying for Adsense and you should be approved in several days.

        I filled out my app two days ago.  I don't recall where there was a field to put any info in if I had a blooger started.  Is it acceptable to contact them back and ask about an app?

      There's a lot of chatter about people finding it hard to get an Adsense account these days, but I think it's mainly because of the six month embargo on certain countries.  It seems like bloggers in other parts of the world are getting approved in a few days like they always were.

      Helen, I'm amazed you didn't apply earlier - it's a good illustration of what I was talking about, people are getting needlessly anxious.

          This is a 5 year old thread with outdated information.  I suggest that you start a new thread with your question.

    Good thing is to first get a hub or two running. Once you got this far, apply for your adsense account. I have done the same and waited for about a week. I have heard it can take up to several weeks, however, me and my Fiance got approved within a matter of days.

    Some people obtain an account reletively quickly however some people on the forum have said they have to wait up to six months. I think if you write a few good quality hubs before you apply, should increase your chances of approval.

    You should read the AdSense terms of service and see if they have any particular restriction on Bali, where you are located.  I know that Google screens Hub users from India and China more strenuously due to higher instances of click fraud and a sudden influx of what they consider to be lower quality sites submitted from those areas.

          Have to place a couple of posts before doing adsense?  that certainly seems to help, but the longer it takes the more likely you need to contact them.

    Thanks for the replies.  Yeah, I think it might be difficult for my partner to get an account.  Indonesia is one of the worst countries for internet fraud and hacking.

    It takes around 1 week. I had applied for Google Adsense after I  put some good contents and saw some traffic.

    The rush for Adsense is understandable when it is one of the few ways of making money on HubPages, but the reality is for most there is no hurry. Income will not usually come from a handful of hubs.

    When I started on the internet years ago the perceived wisdom was build a site, probably 30+ pages of solid content and build the traffic up to a few hundred visitors a day and then apply for Adsense. With a solid site and traffic the approval would usually be very quick, and the clicks and money then start to appear. With less than that the earnings would be minimal any way. 

    Now it seems to be Adsense first and then content - no wonder so many struggle for approval when there is nothing to approve. So I suggest that newcomers to HubPages hold off if they can restrain their impatience, build 20-30 quality hubs and get the page views up to a reasonable level first, unless they are SEO experts and can generate traffic from a handful of quality hubs.
