Hub types and GoogleAdsense
I'll get straight to the point. For someone like me who writes mainly drawing tutorials, how do I go about getting an Adsense account approved? I tried today, and the problem seems to be insufficient content. I do try to include as much as possible (and necessary) in my guides, but something like drawing instruction is naturally going to contain a lot of picture examples. I don't mind branching out and writing about different topics. I just want to know if it is possible to get my type of account approved.
I totally understand your frustration. I applied the other day and they sent me a note rejecting my request because of TOS violations. I am also new (almost a week now), but, I had my 9th hub featured today. However, they clearly state that in order to be considered you need at least 10 published Hubs. Just keep re-applying, that's what I will continue to do until they are satisfied with the number of quality hubs. I hope this was helpful.
The insufficient content refers to the number of hubs you have published. You need to publish a lot more hubs and preferably with a lot of words.
I also got rejected by Google AdSense for insufficient content when I applied the first time with having 11 published hubs, which is why I'm writing a lot more hubs before re-applying again. It seems that Google AdSense is much stricter in accepting people now as I've also been hearing of others who didn't get accepted even when they had 10 published hubs, which is what HubPages recommends you have before applying to AdSense.
So just publish a lot more hubs before applying again.And be sure to read the AdSense policies, terms of service to make sure that you're not violating anything. You can also try to make sure that you get all the goals in the checklist when you edit your hubs. This is the "need some goals?" at the top right-hand side when you're in the edit mode of your hub. Hope this helps and here's to hoping that everyone of us who still hasn't been accepted to AdSense will soon get accepted.
I had the same problem too when I first joined Hubpages. Hubpages requires you to write hubs averaging 800 words per hub and you must write more than 10 such hubs before you can apply for Google AdSense. This worked for me and should work for you too.

Would you think I must apply now for adsense? I have almost 35 hubs, is it okay now? I have read some forum that they got approved without the 6 month thingy. Some got approved in 3 weeks.

I've reviewed the instructions and have been declined again. I joined hubpages in January of 2013, and wrote 4 hubs. In the last few days I have written 6 more hubs. All of my hubs are featured and I have ten total. I hoped that 10 featured hubs would be enough. I am in the...
