New Adsense account- how long to wait.

    Hi, I applied for a google Adsense account  7 days ago and have not heard anything yet ( I am a UK resident).
    Their return email said I should hear within 2-3 days. Does anyone know how long it usually takes?

    It may take a couple of weeks. I suggest you check your spam folder.

      LOL, spam from Google

        That is what Google recommends on their own website.

    Thanks, I have only written 5 hubs, is that enough to be accepted?

      You are welcome. Possibly, yes. It is difficult to tell without reading the hubs, and AdSense practices are not very transparent and their approval criteria are changing. If you have too little site content, they will let you know.

      If you apply through hubpages then I am sure it is enough. I think I only had around 2 hubs when I applied, and they replied very quickly.

        Thanks so much Polly, I'll wait a bit longer. I really appreciate your help.

          make sure to add their email address as a contact, that will make sure it doesn't go to the spam folder. Most times they take about six weeks for non U.S. residents. it will come through soon enough, good luck

    I disagree with the six weeks.

      You think it should be less?

        PS: Six weeks would probably not be unprecedented, but rather unusual.

    I would try and write more, receiving Adsense acceptance can take anything from a few days to several weeks.

      I agree, but there is a point where it is feasible to inquire whether the application was correctly submitted and received. If I were from the UK, I would not wait much longer than two weeks before making inquiries.

    I joined 8 days ago and posted my third hub yesterday then applied and was approved within a few hours.  Not sure if they looked at my hubs or not but one is about 1600, another 2,000 and the third is 800 words.  Not sure if any of that made a difference or not.

      Perhaps US accounts are approved more quickly than overseas accounts?

        I don't think so. AdSense has no preference for US applicants, they are happy to quickly approve qualified applicants from many countries.

    I purchased a domain and started a hub, then applied after about three days of posting content on the blog. I was approved for adsense, amazon and kontera within a day. That was about three weeks ago, so far I have not made back my $25! But I am still working on it.
