Getting adsense if ads are already on my page...

    When I look at the latest hub wrote, there are ads which say that they are by google.  At the same time, my account says it is not signed up for google adsense (even though I've tried multiple times).  My question is are the ads that I have affiliated with adsense or do they just show up normally? 

    Also, when I go to sign up for adsense through hubpages (under "earnings" is says my adsense status is "not set") by clicking "get started" I get to the page where it asks for my e-mail, last 5 digits of my phone number, and for my postal code (along with if I have a google adsense account-which I do.  When I submit the page all that happens is the same page reloads in a blank format (the same page with the phone #, e-mail, and postal codes blank) which makes me think nothing happened... Is this normal or is something not working for me?

    My last issue is that of getting my domain ownership approved when signing up for adsense.  I was told that you could not get hubpages approved on your own and that you needed to sign up through hubpages itself in order to link the two accounts.  Is it true that this is the only way to sign up for adsense on hubpages?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Hi and welcome to Hubpages!

    Firstly, all the adverts currently showing on your hubs give 100% of revenue to Hubpages. Once you have linked an Adsense account, you'll get your adverts shown 60% of the time.

    If you're at a page that asks for digits from your phone number and postcode, you've click on "YES" when asked if you have an Adsense account. You need to click on "NO." It can take 24 hours or more for Adsense to approve your application.

    You can apply using your Hubpages profile (http://hubpages.com/profile/jpfiorillo) or use a free site like blogger. Either way it's a good idea to have some content before applying.

    If you're in India or Asia, it's a mandatory to have 6 months of quality work before you can be approved, due to the high level of spam from these countries.

      There is no mandatory period for anyone.



      Can you cite a few sources as the basis of this repeated assertion?

        Google doesn't say as much - but it just keeps rejecting people from those parts of the world. For very obtuse reasons.

        Ask Saleheensblog, Sofs, Pisean and the dozens of people on the Adsense forum who are from those countries.

          Adsense API from google allows hubpages to send applications related to their revenue sharing site and each application is evaluated under hubpages domain and not based on the personal information(like country, race, color etc). These applicants rarely get denied unless ofcourse they put wrong profile URL or less content under their hubpages profile. Account approval from hubpages referral system is more guaranteed than manual application from google adsense sign up form. 

          Indians can get their application approved within week or so if they own domain and hosting. I think shifa saleheen is from bangladesh and there is no active google hq presence there so not sure if they instantly approve or go for verification check. African countries are out of US payment processing services and other affiliate services due to political reasons and so it's hard to pass any remark on their approval.

    The ads belong to HubPages and show up on every hub unless you change your settings to none, but you can't have any outgoing links.

    You might need more content before you get accepted by AdSense.

    Google's terms for AdSense TOS state that "for some countries,"  applicant sites must be of good quality, be all original content, and have been active for at least 6 months along with following all of the adsense policy, terms of service and webmaster guidelines to gain approval.

    Here at HubPages, there are a LOT of people who are utterly brand-new to web writing or having a web site and so they have been having to wait six months after starting their Hub accounts to find out if they are going to be accepted or not.  That's where WryLilt is getting her hearsay.

    The best thing to do is read the localized terms for your area for any specifics or variations in conditions,

    In fact, Google specifically mentions India and China, as among some countries that will be subject to tougher standards. Of course, those "other countries" are not mentioned - always leading to much confusion.

    My point was not that I dispute that Indians MAY have to wait six months (or even more, or some applicants may never get an account, or some will get it within a week - as has been the case right here on HP). It is a fact that Adsense is usually tougher on Indian applicants.

    My point of contention is the reason she mentions. She has repeatedly asserted that "India and Asia" are subject to tougher standards because "these places breed spammers" (those are the exact words). I would not want to do any hair splitting on "breeding" (as if one is talking about dogs or horses!), but that is not even a fact - Google does not ever mention that spam is the reason.

    A little research will show what is the probable reason, and that reason is definitely not spam.
