    I have recently joined Hubpages and added few my own articles. And applied for Adsense. Today they have disapproved my request for the fourth time. The reason this time was said Page Type. Here's what they said.

    Your website is a type of website that we do not currently accept into our program. Such websites include, but are not limited to, chat sites, sites that drive traffic through cybersquatting, and sites that use excessive keywords in the content or code of their pages.

    But I cannot understand where the issue is. It's great help if someone can help me solve this.

      Did you give them your profile page as the web address or did you just give them 1 hub URL as your website. If your not sure read the docs in the learning centre, there is a link at the bottom of each page and set it up step by step. Hope this helps.

      Hope you are using google accounts for google adsense. Otherwise better sign up for google email. Apply for google adsense through blogger.com. Because you are from asia , the approval for google adsense takes six months. All the best.

    You should submit your profile page as your website when making the application.

    If all else fails, set up a blogger.com account, create a blogspot blog, add some original content to it, can be any topic, leave it for a while say 2 weeks or so, then apply for adsense using that blogger blog as your website. Google sometimes approves these more readily as they own Blogger.com too. Give it a whirl, blogspot blogs tend to rank well too, so it's worth it anyway.

    Right now I think you should concentrate on Content.   Your content is not bad but the writing needs to be tweaked.  I suggest that you post some of your hubs on Extreme Hub Makeover and get some suggestions from other hubbers.   Improving your content will be helpful.

    Thank you very much everybody for your valuable advice. I gave Google my profile page as the web site. Getting an Adsense account through blogger is very hard. Once they have said disapproving my blog, they need top level domain and site must be older than 6 months. Also the domain should be registered under my name.

    I cannot understand where the issue is in my hubs. The earlier link has been removed. Here's the link again for your kind consideration.

      The country you come from has a waiting period of 6 months, that is Google policy. You must have had an active HubPages account for at least that long before your application will be processed.

        But they have not mentioned my hubs should be older than 6 months. What they said was

        Your website is a type of website that we do not currently accept into our program. Such websites include, but are not limited to, chat sites, sites that drive traffic through cybersquatting, and sites that use excessive keywords in the content or code of their pages.

        It is not clear to me where the issue is in my hubs. If I know it I can correct and reapply. If they say it needs to be older than 6 months then I can wait. But here it is different issue.

          I would clean up my HubPages account, write some more quality hubs, wait 6 months, then reapply. Google has support forums and there is contact information as well. Good luck!

    6 months, when that is an issue, is about the age of the profile, not the actual domain.

    I'll be vague in the details I'm about to supply, but the facts remain true:

    I had an account that was over 6 months old and less than 10 hubs published, each hub had original content, and at least one image. I had never inserted my Adsense Publisher ID in it. I had originally set up the account for someone else, but stuff happened so it fell to the wayside.

    I have a friend in business that required an Adsense Publisher ID so rather than start from scratch I applied for Adsense on his behalf through that account on Friday. Within 6 hours he was approved for Adsense.

    Thanks Darkside, this is really interesting.

    I would suggest starting a blogger blog and basing the application there.  It is simpler in the long run.

      It gets past one of the problem (site type), and in six months you will be past the other of your problems (national screening).  And at the end of the day, you either give up on adsense or you do what you have to.

      i think the article title must be appropriate according to the content without "too much" and for content after reader read must let them feel it really benefit and add value to their knowledge. most importantly, make sure your content is not duplicated and is unique. Hope these help.
