    My hub get rejected by Adsense twice. First is due to "page type". After re-apply, they reject me with "unacceptable site content".

    Any suggestion?

      As the email from Google says, you need to read their policies.  It's most likely that you not only don't have enough content for them to accept you, but you live in an area of the world where they specify that you have to have an established web presence for at least six months before you apply

      If they specify unacceptable content that means you cover at least one of the forbidden topics like sex or gambling.  But I had a quick look and couldn't see anything like that.

      Nothing much to worry.

      You have applied for Google Adsense approval a bit early I would say. Wait for couple of more weeks, have atleast 15-20 (or more)  hubs with substantial original content, have a decent traffic (around 100 page views per day), apply again and I think you will be through.

        thanks for the suggestion. 15-20 more hubs are fine. But 100 page views per day, this is kind of hard for me. How to get that much of traffic?

          Oh don't you worry... Google comes up with these strange mails.. if you do not have any hubs covering forbidden topics just let it be .. keep writing is their way of saying that you have to wait for six months as you are from Malaysia. Don't get discouraged we have all been through that .. it takes six months for your hubs to start earning and anyway it won't amount to much..
          Write more and do all that you would to promote and it will come. Best wishes to you smile

              I'm not sure if Malaysia is one of Google's countries where you have to wait 6 months or not.

              It shouldn't be too hard to find out if you Google it! Eeeek!

              Sorry about that - it really shouldn't be the same company who runs the adverts and the search engines!

              By the way, I read some of your hubs and the content is excellent.

              Welcome to Hubpages smile

              IF, and that is only an if, you have to wait six months for approval, please spend more time writing hubs, because it will be well worth it when you get approval.

      If you resubmit without even trying to address whatever the Google reviewer saw, you may get away with it or you may get banned. You need to look for:

      Adult content
      Copyrighted material
      Gambling content
      Drug, alcohol, and tobacco-related content
      Hacking and cracking content
      Violent content
      Weapon-related content
      Sites which offer compensation programs ("pay-to" sites)
      Content which advocates against an individual, group, or organization
      Content that promotes illegal activity or infringes on the rights of others


      pages that could be interpreted as negative, non-family safe or potentially offensive.

      It is also possible they considered the quality too low, I saw a number of obvious typos--although overall not too many.

        Well, I don't think i violated any topics above.
        For typos, i type my articles in Ms Word before move it to Hubpages. If yes Ms Word should had pointed out. Already tried my best to avoid...

        The HP filters would have kicked in long ago if those were the issues. Did you look at this guy's hubs?

      Google is not very strict in enforcing six month wait for the some of the countries. If the content and the track record is good they do relax the rules and give the approval a bit earlier.

      I would suggest you to keep writing and may be a month or two months after you apply for approval again and might get through with it. (Now with the approval process being two steps, you might get through it ). But again, with Google you are not 100% sure of anything, so have that in mind.

      With respect to increase traffic on your hubs, please read the learning center docs and the related hubs.

      Above all, keep asking/posting your experience in the forums here. Hubpages community is such an awesome place - you can't find more helpful folks anywhere else.
