    Please visit my hubs at the link given below and please...please...please tell me what's wrong with the hubs?

    As you can see, all the 4 hubs are about food and contain nothing objectionable are as per Google Adsense Content Guidelines. But still, my application for a Google Adsense account gets rejected every time, giving the following reason;

    Unacceptable site content: Your website contains content that we do not
    allow at this time. Please review our policies
    ( for a complete list
    of site content not allowed on web pages.

    I went through Google Adsense Content Guidelines several times, but I am unable to pinpoint the particular error. Please help me. I am seeing obtaining a Google Adsense account as a challenge now, because I think I have not posted anything that violates Adsense Policies. Here is more information for your ready reference;

    i.   My hubs are almost a year old now and have good traffic. If you check my profile in HubPages, you'll find that it was created 12 months ago. I cannot provide you the exact date of creation of my hub because every time I updated it and published it, the date changed.

    ii. Google Adsense is saying that it contains "Unacceptable site content" and I am unable to pinpoint what's exactly unacceptable in them. Please go through my hubs through the link posted above and tell me if you find anything unacceptable with them.

    Please help me out.

    Thanks & regards,

    It's not just about your content - it's about your location, too.

    Sadly, since many spammers come from India & Asia, adsense no longer approves new accounts without at least six months history of good quality and a large amount of, content.

    Your hubs are very short and do not line up very well - there's a big space to the left with the pictures on the right.

    Try writing some better content and making them longer.

    If you want to earn money, I'd recommend working on writing product and review hubs and getting some Amazon income.

      Thanks a lot for those tips! But if you take a closer look at my hubs, you'll find that;

      i. My hubs are almost a year old now.
      ii. They do not contain anything offensive.
      iii. Traffic is average.

      Moreover, Google Adsense never complained me about location and obviously I am not sending spams to anybody.

      Although your tips are really of great help, but could you please pinpoint the exact "Unacceptable Content" in them. I recently removed all the images from my hubs because they were downloaded from other sites and applied, but was rejected again. But at the same time, I know of some hubs created by my friends who used downloaded images and still got approval from Adsense. I am really confused about what's going wrong.

      Please help...

      Thanks a lot & regards

    I think you might need to write longer hubs, and more of them. The quality doesn't seem too bad, especially compared to a lot of the dross out there.

    My advice would be to write at least 6 more hubs and try and make each one contain at least 800-1500 words of good unique content.

      Thanks! That was a good tip indeed. But I still request you if you could pinpoint the exact "Unacceptable Content" in my hubs. I am really confused at such remarks of Google Adsense. I don't see anything offensive in them. I have also deleted all the images from my hubs because they were downloaded, and applied again, and again rejected. But at the same time, there are lots of hubbers who are using downloaded images and got approval from Adsense.

      Please help. Please pinpoint the exact "Unacceptable Content" so that I don't repeat in future hubs.

      Waiting for a response, Thanks

    Based upon what I have read - and numerous forum threads will confirm this, if you research them - "unacceptable content" is more or less a standard explanation Google Adsense uses when rejecting applications. This could include the issues WryLilt and Thisisoli have mentioned here, namely the 6-months waiting period and/or an insufficient amount of content to warrant approval. Which brings us back to their advice: Write some more quality hubs, then apply again.

      Yep WE is right .. this is just the standard reply.. for rejection of Asian application... don't get worked up just write long quality hubs that the search engines will like and hopefully you will get accepted.
      6 months looks like standard..waiting period.. your may be an exception I am hearing from people with good content anytime from 4 months upward they are getting accepted.
      I can understand your frustration.. I have whined too .. that is Google for you..
      cheer up and keep working.

    Yes, India is one of 'those' countries - it seems to take a long time for Google to accept. 

    You need to really be quite active if you want acceptance - so enjoy writing hubs and reapply - people on this thread has given you some great advice - dont let it get you down - Good Luck!
