    How long did it take you to get GoogleAds approval?

    I for one thought I'd have it already but failed so far so a heads up would be great to how long should we expect to avoid disappointment.

    It took me about six months to get GoogleAds approval as it is the minimum prescribed time for publishers in my country. I have given my experience at … -Publisher

      wow, that's impressive. It must have take a lot of determination and will *hats off* .. I've been trying for only two weeks and started to feel a little bit down big_smile

    5 weeks to the date.   Just keep writing quality things and I'm sure you'll see results.  Though, for some countries you have to wait 6 months.  I am unsure for Egypt.

      When I looked around searching in that matter, penalty is for India and china only, no Egypt mentioned anywhere so I hope it's not included :\ ... And will do, I actually started liking it for the sake of writing itself big_smile

      Well hopefully things will look up soon!  Just focus on creating great hubs and make sure you follow all the tips in the learning center to fit the guidelines for Google Adsense and it'll be no time before you're in!  Good luck to you!

    I already had an active adsense account when I created this account. As I remember, it took me more or less 3 months to be accepted through my first account. Don't worry since you'll only make negligible income with only a few hubs prior the adsense approval. Just keep on writing quality content and try again once you made at least 30 hubs. Welcome to hubpages and God bless!

      I know for sure about the 6 months penalty in china and India, but are you positive about Africa? ... damn, 6 months feels like a life time :\

    When I started Hubpages I was accepted into the Google adsense program in a little over 2 weeks. From what I have read, I think it must be much harder now, or I just got lucky.

    I have been here for 11 months, published 23 featured hubs, around 6500 views so far and my average Hub score fluctuates from 77 to 80, but my Google Adsense application has not been approved so far. I had first applied after completing 15 hubs. To cut it short, I have not earned anything here. But I love being here, writing, reading and learning from so many talented writers here. I love the HP community.
