The Hubpages FAQ states that gambling strategy articles are permitted (though obvious commercial promotion is not). However, the Google adsense FAQ simply states gambling is not allowed.
Does this mean essentially that if you have a gambling strategy hub you can't use adsense?
Thanks. I noticed what you refer to but that seems to be dealing purely with hubpages attitude towards gambling. I am certain I can meet their criteria as I have no interest in promoting gambling operators and am focused just on strategy discussion as required.
However, it seems that Google adsense specifically disallow any mention of gambling. I don't understand how it is that many hubs seem to discuss gambling and have adsense. I am concerned that even if hubpages allow my content I will get my adsense account banned.
All hubs must meet the conditions of the AdSense Program Policy. If you dig a little deeper, Google explains their gambling program policy further. It's certainly open to interpretation, but we believe that hubs that mention gambling but have no connection whatsoever to sites that offer gambling for money are within the policy. Of course, if you value your AdSense account it's probably better to err on the side of caution.
I would suggest if you really value your adsense account that you stay far away from gambling and find safer topics. Some people can't resist playing with fire, because it's either a topic they know alot about or there they believe a lot of easy money is there to be made.
I read this before I wrote about playing poker and decided it was not a risk.
AdSense publishers aren't permitted to place Google ads on sites with gambling or casino-related content. In other words, if your site accepts money or allows users to place bets in exchange for an opportunity to earn cash or other prizes, then it's unacceptable to place Google ads on your site. Please note that this policy also prohibits the placement of Google ads on sites that link to online gambling sites.
They are pretty clear about what is not allowed. I will say that this is a very, very, very competitive subject and I will not be writing any more unless I can ever get any traffic to the ones I have.

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...

Because of some technical problems with the Google AdSense API, since Thursday evening you can not associate or create a new Google AdSense account through the HubPages Affiliate Settings Page. If you try, the error you see will say an internal error occurred, which indicates a problem in...

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up. I could not find anything like this in the help section, is there something else I need to...

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

My Google AdSense is in violation due to the fact that I canceled my adsense account by mistake. I got confused when trying to restore the account and somehow in the process made another account. I'm very disappointed with Google for not having a live person to speak with in these types...
