How do I set up Google AdSense if I was declined the first time?

    How do I set up Google AdSense if I was declined the first time?

    I applied for Google AdSense and was declined. I'm not sure why. Anyway, on the earnings page a red blurb pops up that says I can resubmit an application through the AdSense site directly but when I go there and say I want to advertise on, I get another red blurb that says to apply through HubPages. I feel like I'm going in circles. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? Any advice? Thanks!

    I am having the same issue currently.  I read somewhere that it is a good idea to have about 10 hubs before applying for that or they won't approve it. I'm not sure if that is correct but I'm waiting until I finish a few more before reapplying.

    I am not sure what the reason was for your account with adsense getting declined. But you need to have quality hubs atleast 10 or more before applying, more the hubs, more the traffic and better your chances to get approved. Now for the issue with you to go in circles smile .. Plesae contact the hub support once you have good number of hubs and traffic and they will surely help you out !!

      Thank you, mr-veg. I saw in a few places that the number of hubs affects the approval process as well. I'll just cool my heels for now, continue writing hubs, and try again later.

    hello BoozyHomemaker,
    Let me try to solve this problem for you.
    It is better to first build a high quality blog on the topic of your interest, on . By saying high quality, I mean the content should be original and at least make 10-15 posts over a period of 2 weeks and Do Not over do any promotions or spamming in the form of link building, let that blog grow naturally over a period of time. Then apply for google adsense from the "Monetize this Blog" from the dashboard of that blogger account. And wait for at least 1-2 weeks. And you are done. I feel this is the best way to monetize your blogger blog and you can get an adsense account for use on hubpages too. Till then, you can use amazon, ebay and HubPages Ad program for your hubs, which are by far the best monetization methods.
    I know that the above method takes at least 2 months, but you should not quit writing good quality hubs on hubpages. consistency in writing is very important.
    Hope this helps, and good luck for your adsense approval.

    Hello Boozy, yes the problem is the short amount of time that you have been here, also you will need to have several good quality hubs that Google will be interested in placing their ads on. I would suggest waiting until you have written the hubs and reapply after you have been here 3 to 4 weeks. Good luck!
