      Best thing to do is email them and ask them directly.

          Finding contact info for Google is usually tough, even for email. I've only done it a couple of times, and I did it by digging through their site. You might try searching the web for their contact info. That actually might be faster than searching their site.

            Every AdSense ad has a contact link, just click on the link at "Ads by Google."

    Pramod, you're from Sri-lanka and google adsense requires a blog or site with 6 month of solid content. Start blogging via blogger for next 6 months or on your own domain before you apply again for adsense.

      Or hubbing via hubpages.

      Whether it's here or somewhere else it doesn't matter. It's the amount of time and the quality of the content that is taken into account.

      @Skyfire - so u mean i can't get adsense through hub pages right? Oh good..

      @Sidd - yeah. im from Sri Lanka.

      @Darkside - So can u help me to get adsense?

      1. saleheensblog profile image60
        saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        you can get adsense via hubpages or any other writing platform where the writing medium is English. Start writing good, fresh content and wait 6 month.

        SiddSinghposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        @pramodblog,

        Please be patient - that is the best approach - besides adding a lot of good quality - ORIGINAL content - preferably on a self hosted blog. Contrary to popular perception, a self owned blog is not expensive - you can get one for less than 1 USD per month.

        And if that seems expensive to you, at least go for a blogger.com blog. For Asians, a separate blog is a better choice than Hubpages for getting a new Adsense account.

        In the meanwhile, continue adding content on HP.

        P.S. - No one can help you get an Adsense account - other than yourself.

        Publish 10 original quality articles of at least 700 words over 6 months and you should be right.

            I think it is pretty much certain you will be accepted. I've read your hubs. They are good, although I would stay away from articles on child abuse / adult topics... at least on the hub page account you apply to google with (safe rather than sorry)

            1. saleheensblog profile image60
              saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              I am also worried about that. I have 2 hubs on child abuse, 6 on suicide prevention, 2 on breast cancer awareness. None of those adsense friendly.  But I don't want to open another account and wait 6 more month sad

              1. ThomasE profile image73
                ThomasEposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                Well, I certainly wouldn't apply using the new account, I would just move any hubs you consider risky to the new account, and apply with your current account.

                It will lose you some age and search engine rating, so if they get a lot of traffic, it might be a harder decision.

                    Don't be scared, I'm certainly not Google, and as I said I think you will probably be accepted either way. Even if not accepted, you could apply again a month or so later.  It's not like its a single shot. I got accepted on my third application.

                    I'm definatly not saying these hubs will prevent you getting accepted by adsense... I just think it may make it a little harder...

  3. saleheensblog profile image60
    saleheensblogposted 7 years ago

    Fresh content means contents that are not copied or written through article spinner.

    Your contents are not of great quality yet. Consider the following things:
    ~never plagiarize
    ~write hub that has at least 600 words; you hubs lack contents.
    ~write in good English, your English doesn't seem bad though

    Pramod this is Google's standard answer to all Asians..whether your content is acceptable or not.. the waiting period is six months.

    @ skyfire looks like people with blogs of ten months, with decent content are now being refused by Google.. I just heard from another hubber about this. sad

    Are there other ways of working around this? would you know/

      SiddSinghposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      @sofs,

      From what I know, there is no "hard and fast" rule of six months - I personally know a couple of friends (Indian) who have got their adsense accounts in less than six months - even in three months. Of course, both of them bought their own domains - .co.in domains in both cases. But overall, the six month moratorium exists.

      Don't be afraid of buying your own domains - .co.in and .in domains are available for less than Rs 100 - and you don't even need a credit card - a net banking enabled bank account will do. You can even get good hosting for a single website at Rs 45 per month - payable monthly.

    I have 278 hubs.  Now it is the eleventh month.  I am from India. First I applied after one month and I was declined and among other things it was suggested that I had to for 6 months. I waited while continued to write. In the 7th month I applied agian.  But was declined saying there was content which could not be allowed. I went through the contents and deleted some which might be of issue.  I continued to write and applied again in the 9th month.  It was again declined stating Site Page problem. 

    I had a further look into my contents. After publishing a number of articles on Hubpages, I had republished the same on Bukisa. 
    I am afraid that it may be a problem. Will it give rise to the issue of Duplicate Content? Anyway I have deleted those articles from Bukisa. Now when I checked for duplicate content for my hubpages content, nothing is showing up on google.  I am waiting to apply again. Whatelse should I do? Please advise.  Thanks in advance.

      saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I am shocked sad but one thing I can say is the author score of 78 what you currently have reflects that your contents have some problems for sure. A mature hubber with even only a couple of hub can maintain a author score above 80 even without participating in the forum.

    dude, your blog needs to be at least 6 months old, its just 3 weeks old. My adsense application got accepted when my hubpages ID was 8 months old. So till then, try to develop your writing skills, get some traffic to your pages.

    cheers!

    @saleheensblog.  My author score had been above 90 a few months ago.  It had in fact reached above 80 in a couple of weeks of my joining.  I have accounts with other sites such as Associated Content, Factoidz, Triond, Bukisa, etc.  I am an experienced writer with good language skills.

    The author score on Hubpages is primarily a measure of the activity level. Pageviews also counts.  I have daily pageviews in the range of 1500 to 1800.  But of late, barring a few new postings, my activity on Hubpages is minimum. Hence the author score has come down.  A month's activity can bring it above 90.

    1. saleheensblog profile image60
      saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      may be but I think the re-posting of your hubs in Bukisha caused you the harm. Activity doesn't really matter for author score if the hubs are fine from all points. As you have deleted those it should be ok, I hope.

    These days it is very difficult to get adsense approval without having your own domain. Google is now rejecting almost all applications coming with various profile pages, and this problem is not confined to asia.a domain just cost a few dollars and a wordpress self hosted blog is as user friendly as blogger. just buy your own domain and then apply.

    @mdlawyer, why are you keeping same content over multiple sites ? This will not only hurt your application process but also your adsense income and organic links.

  12. jamesbrownbete profile image60
    jamesbrownbeteposted 7 years ago

    Just, don't lose hope! Google, actually banned several countries due to massive fraudulent acts like invalid clicks. Your country might be included. So, to get over this problem, continue publishing unique content and reapply again soon.

  13. mdlawyer profile image38
    mdlawyerposted 7 years ago

    @skyfire.  In fact the reposting happened nearly 10 months ago during my initial days on Hubpages.  Then the duplicate content aspect was not a very serious issue on the Net. Then it was really a myth, because I got better pageviews for my reposts on better-ranking sites than what I got from my original posts on low-ranking sites. Subsequently, the issue became more serious and now it has assumed very alarming proportions. Other than the few initial reposts 10 months ago, I haven't reposted anywhere.

    Anyway, I have deleted the reposts a couple of weeks ago and am going to reapply after a few weeks. Thank you all for the help.

    You were probably rejected because you only had two hubs. I was accepted within hours. However, I have hundreds of articles all over the net.

    They can't assess what your writing is like and whether you're going to be making money for them.

    I would write a lot more high quality hubs and then reapply.
