    Why does Google Adsense keep rejecting my application?

    I have 19 awesome, professionally written hubs yet I have twice been denied access to the Google Adsense program.  I'm getting very frustrated and am about to set up an Indyarocks account to get approved.  Why is it so hard to get one through Hubpages when I know my hubs are all featured and within Google's guidelines?  I'm about to delete all my hubs and paste them onto another blog site that I know will accept my Adsense application.  Please help!

    Your name is   not unique. Other people have  the same name. Use symbols .For example, there are many Pablo Escobar in different countries using the same name. Google computer thinks you are the same person.

      I never thought of that and guess I shouldn't have used my own name.  Thanks for the tip as I will be sure to revise my user name and will be sure to include symbols.

    You gotta have patience. I had 20 hubs and over 15k views and still got denied.
    I finally applied through my Youtube account and got through easily.
    Depending on your location you gotta wait 6 months before applying for adsense.
    If your Youtube account has aged for over 6 months, then apply there..you don't even need any content to apply on Youtube. Once you've got your adsense account,just link it here and your done.

      How old is your youtube account?
      Monetise it first and then apply for adsense..you should get through..

      ...before applying so that they don't get people frustrated.  I did find that the easiest and fastest way to get approved is to set up an Indyrocks account, which I am working on now.  What's ironic is that my content here will be a lot more...

    Hang in there. I was getting rejected for over 25 hubs due to insufficient content but as soon as I had completed a full month on HubPages, my AdSense account was approved. I believe you've been here 3 weeks so I suggest waiting another one or two and then reapply.

      Thanks so much to everyone for all their feedback if I don't respond directly to your comment.  Perhaps I'm just being impatient, but Hubpages makes it sound like all you need are 10 featured hubs.  They should also suggest waiting up to a month...

    Patience my friend, patience. Believe me you are not missing out on any money in your first few months on HP without adsense. Just be patient and continue what you are doing, you will get there. I would wait a few weeks before applying again. Good luck my friend.

      ...engaging than what they require from Indyarocks.  But I guess that's the power of a site that is partnered with Adsense.  I'll let you all know if it works before the end of the week as they should approve me within 2 days.  Thanks again!

    I have had the same issue. I read a few posts on Hubpages and took the advice to make several articles longer. I added 2 that were around 1500 words. My next application to Adsense was accepted.  I can't say for sure that was the issue but I'm realively new and only have 10 articles, 2 of which are longer ones. Hope that helps!

      Yeah but all of mine are a lot longer than that, which is why I was so surprised.  Were you on here for at least a month before finally getting accepted/
