    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.

    Hello KrysDWrites,

    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.

      Yes, it was helpful, thank you! I'll keep on trying until I get results.

    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.

      Thank you for clearing that up concerning the insufficient content. I'll read through the policies as you suggested. I'll also work on writing more hubs and improving existing hubs.

    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.
