I was rejected from Google AdSense due to insufficient content.
I've only posted one hub thus far, so that makes sense, I guess, but the rejection notification said I need more complete sentences on my site. I'm confused. I'm definitely writing in complete sentences! Can anyone advise? Thanks.
I suppose that some people don't take too kindly to a lot of one or two word sentences, like this: Yes. I know. Okay. Well, alright. Another thing that often perks up some pet peeves from the ones who may be examining applications, is if you have way too many sentences starting with the word 'But' or 'And', for example. On occasions, it is fine, but when a lot of your sentences start with 'But' or 'And' in combination with several others that are only one, two or three words long, it often throws a flag. I'm not saying that you do, just giving some possibilities...
I would imagine it simply means that you need more content (more than one hub), not that you don't write with complete sentences. Google likes content rich articles in which to 'pull out' search phrases that are being entered into a search query. I would write and publish more hubs and try again.
I just took a look at your hub (it was very good by the way). Other than the fact I know Adsense like to see at least 10 hubs before granting an Adsense account, the only criticism I could make was that some of your sentences are very short, and would read better if you used commas to make it one long sentence. For example your first paragraph was 28 words long, but this was broken up into six sentences. I would have laid it out something like this instead.
'Breathe, just breathe, it's so simple it can't possibly help, can it? What do you mean just breathe? Of course I'm breathing, what a dumb thing to say!'
You see that now instead of six sentences it is only three sentences, and it flows smoother when you read it out loud. There were a few other places in the hub where the sentences were a bit short like this example, but for the most part they were fine. Perhaps this is what Google meant when they talked about 'writing in complete sentences.'
My guess is that you will be reconsidered and accepted once you publish more hubs. I was initially rejected, but after posting about 10 hubs I reapplied and was accepted. You writing is very good, so I am sure that you will have no problem getting accepted.
another thing you can do is start a blog as well on a free site like blogger (Google is friendly to blogger folks ) write some of your own content there and cross promote your hubs and your blog posts (as long as they are somewhat similar themed). I've found blog posts can be a bit less formal and more conversational while still placing well in search engines.
Backlinking is great strategy as you work to build more content online anyway and it may help you to get enough content developed to get AdSense to accept you faster.
A review of the webpage for Google Adsense provides a reason why a hub (article) would be rejected for insufficient content.
The site even included comments and questions by those who had a longer history with online publications. The following is copied from the Google Adsense website, and is an explanation for the denial of your application:
To be considered for AdSense, your site must contain
enough text content for our specialists to review and for our crawlers to
identify relevant ads to show on your pages. We recommend including more
complete sentences and paragraphs on your site. We require websites to be
fully launched and functioning, allowing users to navigate throughout your
site with a menu, sitemap, or appropriate links. Once the majority of your
site is complete and functional, we'll be happy to reconsider your
While the context of your hub is extremely well, the content does show that you have many short sentences. It appears that you need to edit your hub, and restructure those sentences that are extremely short. As a writer, I imagine this should not be difficult for you.
I also think that perhaps you should use the text toolbar to break-up the layout of your hub. This will also allow placement of ads on your page. Your current layout does not have room for the placement of any additional ads.
I hope this helps.
I don't think there is anything wrong with your sentences. Google won't tell you the exact reason for rejection, but from my previous application experience I would feel that your are required to submit more articles to hubpage before they approve your application. So just continue submitting a few more articles and apply again later. Good luck!
Thanks so much for all the helpful advice. Maybe my next hub should be titled "How Not to Freak Out When Rejected by Google AdSense"!
As many people say there is no fixed number of words or pages to get your blog to be accepted by adsense.
I followed the trick below and it worked for me.
