My application for Google AdSense has been partially reviewed.

    A week ago, I received an email from Google AdSense saying my application had been partially reviewed, they would continue to review my site and it would be either approved or disapproved in 4 business days. I still haven't heard anything. Is there anything I can do other than send them an email?

      I recently got an adsense account. I got the same email, nothing else. They said they would get back to me via email but nothing ever happened. When I logged onto the adsense account it said it was still under review. One day, about 4 weeks later, that message stopped appearing. I correctly assumed that my account was good to go. I started using my id number and everything is working fine. Don't send them anything, they won't respond. Just keep working on content, it will be approved when they get around to it.

      I had the same issue. I got an email regarding that my google adsense application is under review. But the thing which I forgot is to implement the code. You should create ads in Google Adsense and implement in your site. Unless you don't implement then you site won't be reviewed. Implement the code then your site will be fully approved within 2-3 days.

    Google usually does not respond to email queries. The email itself sounds a bit odd, so you may want to be careful. I suggest posting to the AdSense support forum, where a Top Contributor may flag it for staff review or at least you will get a fuller explanation.

      I agree with WE, the email doesn't sound like Adsense to me, but only they can tell.

      I agree it sounds odd, but when I try to log onto my AdSense account is gives me the same message, that my account is still under review. Maybe it's something new they're doing.

    Great to know I am not the only one that got this email from Google after applying for my AdSense account.  Crossing my fingers that I am approved soon.

    I had the same message from AdSense several weeks ago, and my account is still on hold.  Is this just a stalling tactic or has something gone wrong?  I am still in the review mode and not earning anything from Hub pages.

      It sounds like a new procedure.  Think for a moment, how many thousands of applications Adsense must get every single day - it was never an overnight process.  Patience!

      It took me nearly two months to get approved totally, from the time I got the first Partial Approval email to when I got the second email from AdSense telling me I was approved. I applied in the middle of November 2011 and it was the middle of January 2012 before I was able to start earning.I think it's just taking them a long time to approve people right now.

      I guess you just need patience, and keep publishing hubs so they're ready to go when you do get approved! I've been there!

          Hi, I had the same letter and it took a few weeks. I finally posted a note on their forum saying that I was wondering what was up and the very next day mine was out of pending. So, I don't know if it was a coincidence or what, but someone on the adsense forum had given that advice so I followed it. You might want to give it a try.

    When I applied for an adsense account,I got nothing to let me know if it was sent or not. I'm not sure if they even recieved it. How Is one to know?

  7. ElizaDoole profile image87
    ElizaDooleposted 6 years ago

    I had the same problem and managed to fix it by trail and error following this hub advice, particularly the last section, about channels. As soon as I did whatever bit I had missed, google asked for a phone number, and called me. You have access to the Adsense account when partially reviewed. Log in and look around.

    As soon as they ask to phone, check you have put a number in the Adsense account.
    Bingo, account activated.

    Though, earnings stay on hold for a few weeks, and then that bit changes automatically. Hope this helps you all, here is the hub link. x Eliza x

    I had a crazy time trying to get approved. Two denials then a partial review email in the same 15 minutes for my application. It said it was under review for a few days after that. I read someone's post somewhere on the web which said he downloaded Google Chrome and was approved. So, this may all be happenstance and completely unnecessary but... I logged out of my Adsense account, downloaded Chrome and then logged back in. Within 2 hours, I was approved with an email in my box and everything. Strange happenings I tell ya! Could be complete coincidence, but who knows. Now I use Chrome and FF.

        Def done the channels bit too, within the Adsense Account Vespa? You could add more hub content while you wait? Can't hurt.

          No good news yet. Yes, I've done all the channels. I'm working on another hub as we speak.

    I was finally approved for Google AdSense! The confirmation email I received from AdSense, though, only lists one of my hubs as showing ads. Should I be worried about the other hubs, or will that come automatically?

      You should be concerned. I checked some of your hubs, and there are no ads on them. Try to edit the hubs, and be sure that the hubs are set to "commercial" and the ad level to "high."

      Ad serving is automatic, and has nothing to do with whether a Hubber has an active AdSense account or not. If the ads have been disabled by HubPages, there should be alerts on the hubs. In case you need clarification, contact HubPages (team@hubpages.com).

    Hi vespawoolf, i too got a partial review mail today. They've written that they would decide within 4 Business days. By the looks of your posts I feel that my case is similar to you. What do you say about the wait it will take.

      Hi Gurpreet Seehra, I think the wait was partially my fault for not setting things up right. Be sure to visit the Learning Center under "help" and follow the suggestions in the technical section. It makes a difference!

    vespawoolf, how long was it before you ended up getting approved for adsense? I'm having this same problem a lot of other hubbers have had, and I see some took up to a month or so before the second stage of their Adsense application was finally approved...
