    How many Hubs should I publish before I apply for Adsense?

    I currently have nine Hubs, and I'm currently writing my tenth one. I really would love to apply for Google Adsense soon, so that I can start earning from my hubs.
    However, I'm not sure how many I should publish before I apply! Should I apply after I get to ten? or should I publish some more? How many more?

    Thank you!

    Apply for adsense right away is my word of advice, because google will place the ad's into action on your very first hub you submit, so if you looking to gain any sort of revenue back in return for your earnest hard efforts writing here, you should do it asap.

    I'm earning some good numbers even in my very first 4 months here, and I am surprised it all works out so smoothly.  Adsense pays out after you accumulate your first 100 bucks, so good luck and keep hubbing.

    I agree, do it as soon as you can.

    i wrote 6 hubs before applying for adsense and they immediately sent an email saying they have partially accepted me and will fully approve or disapprove my application within 4 business days. smile

    You should definitely apply now, you have enough hubs to get approved. I wouldn't recommend that people apply when they have less than 3 hubs though. I tried it after only writing 1 hub and it got denied. When I reapplied after I had 6 hubs it got approved pretty quickly.

    Go for it. I hastily applied with zero hubs but was accepted within a couple of weeks with about 4. I did, however, have a blog beforehand. That probably helped.

    I applied after I'd written two and got accepted the same day, within hours. But then my hubs are awesome smile

    Suggest you to apply now, as your current articles are sufficient. I had my approved around around this number too. Good luck to you.

    I applied with one and was turned down.  I reapplied when I had three and was accepted.  I suggested 3 as the magic number to my wife and it worked for her, too.

    The number of hits you'll miss in the first week or so aren't enough to worry about.
