    How many Hubs should I write before applying for a Google Adsense account? Thanks.

      You should apply as soon as you've written your fifth hub. Assuming, of course, you intend to write more. The adSense rewards start taking effect when your readership starts getting into the hundreds (for all hubs) per day. Since there is no way to predict with any certainty how popular your hubs are going to be, I suggest applying as soon as you've written five or more hubs.

        Liam, it depends what you mean by "rewards".  I haven't written hundreds of Hubs and neither has Relache.  My next Adsense payout will be around $300.  Relache is an internet professional and earns far more than me!  It's not entirely about quantity.

    Julie, based on what everyone has said, there is no magic number for your answer.

    However since you haven't written even one, I don't think you should even be thinking about AdSense yet.

    Relache, agreed.  I have read as few as five or as many as fifteen to be accepted for Google Adsense.  Just wanted other people's experience with this.  Thanks for your advice.

    I dont think there is a number nor could anybody prove that any number is the correct one, if you are US or UK based you are most likely to get accepted, even one hub could suffice.

    One used to be able to get into adsense with one post on a one day old blogspot.

    I think a lot of the confusion comes from the waiting periods required for india,china, phillipines and other countries that adsense doesnt seem to desire partnerships with

    it doesnt hurt to apply and get denied

    you need to w8 min 6 months to apply for adsense (new rules). Make sure you have activity on your pages.
    Sry for bumping up the thread.

      Not true at all,  waiting period only for previously mentioned countries.

    Write at least a few quality hubs-3 or 4- and get some traffic, then apply for adsense.I hope it will work.

    I have plenty of hubs but google rejected me by saying I can't apply with '/' in url. I have applied for my profile url- http://hubpages.com/profile/directsaurabh . Can you tell me why is it not working?

      I think your supposed to use hubpages as the domain not your profile as the domain and i guess theres a policy about Indians applying after a six month waiting period. I'm from the U.S. so my application didn't need to wait the six month waiting period and I only needed one hub. only took two hours to receive the automated approval. but being in India is a different story I suppose. Try ( this is speculation) not using the profile next time but the main hubpage domain in general unless it specifically instructs otherwise for Indian residents

          Marissa , this is not meant with bad intention, but i feel now that you are in another forum and are still hinging on my every word making sure its up to your standard , that I feel like im being followed ,fanned, followed, fanned, followed...get my drift . I don't want to have to post by what you think is politically correct and argue if not to you liking... I would like to post without you looking to follow up evertything i say please.

    When i applied in 2007 i had written only one hub and my adsense account got approved within 2 days. I got paid by them after 5 months and now get paid every 2 months. :-)

      That was in 2007, a lot has changed since then.

      Mel, as I said, not following you intentionally - just felt it appropriate to say thanks for your post, since I'd given you a hard time elsewhere.
