- Unacceptable site content
That's what I have received just now, but never did it mention what specifically needs to be done. I'm clueless on what is really the problem.
Can someone help?
Since you only have eleven hubs it shouldn't be too difficult.
The main problems often include adult or sensitive content (sex, suicide etc), drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, or promotion of illegal or hacking type sites or traffic exchanges and requests in any way to click on adverts or make people click on them.
i think i know now what's the problem. in my "facebook dangers" hub, i've used a photo with a lady using cocaine which spells f-a-c-e-b-o-o-k. I think this is it. I've changed it and resubmitted my application.
Hopefully, they'll approve it within a week. My fingers are crossed.
Unfortunately, I've suddenly become ineligible to participate in the Know-It-All Contest.
It may not even be related to that... I was also told I had unacceptable content.. and so were many others.. these are standard responses that you get when you apply for Adsense.. this could only mean wait.. Asians have this six month wait period... you could still appeal in the Google forums...
It could also be your smoking hub. Even thought it's anti-smoking.
should i disable the ads in my smoking hub? and what about my atheist hub?
Religion and politics are not prohibited topics. Atheism is not a prohibited topic. Sex, drugs and gambling are, including cigarettes.
Google uses robots to police these rules. They can't read the meaning of an article, they can only look for prohibited words. So you could write a strong anti-drug article and you'd be penalized. You can write a serious article on sex education and you'd be penalized. Same goes for cigarettes.
Ever since Panda, I've worried about HubPages' decision to leave these Hubs published and simply disable the ads. The Panda algorithm (which is run regularly) looks at your whole sub-domain and if it finds even one or two "low quality" posts, it will assign the whole sub-domain a low score. A low Panda Score means little or not traffic. "Low quality" can mean several things, but dubious topics is one possibility.
So even though you can safeguard your Adsense account by disabling ads on those Hubs, you're still at risk of losing traffic to ALL your Hubs. Not worth it, IMO. My advice would be - if you want to write about these subjects, go find a site which doesn't use Adsense, and write those articles there.
rLcasaLme, to please Google you have to look at it from their point of view. They don't want to feature ads in hubs that contain any content that is slightly objectionable. So anything having to do with drugs, cigarettes, sex, abortion, religion etc. -- they're not going to like. You really have to stick to subjects that are pleasant and commercial for the most part. If you can deal with that restriction, then you know what has to go and what topics you should stick to.
I deal with a lot of political subjects that can be very provocative. I don't have any ads.
But I thought I can just disable the ads where these restrictions fall. Not all of my hubs are about these anyway. I'll try that.
Yes, you can disable hubs, but Adsense will probably look at your whole set of hubpage articles when making their decision. It's best to unpublish the questionable ones then when you do have Adsense approval, publish them but with the ads disabled so that you don't lose your account.
if i unpublish, does that make all the comments deleted?
That's a good question, I don't know. I would think not. You can ask hubpages that question. However, I would ask myself which is the priority, the adsense account or the comments.
No, but since you've unpublished, no one can see them, so I'm not sure why you'd worry.

I would love to have some guidelines about what constitutes 'adult content'. In two recent hubs I wrote about how to make love in the woods and in a car...with no "graphic" detail that I am aware of. I don't mean to write things that are offensive by any means. ...

Currently my hubs are running ads through both the HP ad program and Google Adsense (External Affiliate). I am thinking of disabling the Adsense ads on a few hubs only considering that it will raise the CPM of HP ads. Disabling on only a few hubs because if I disable it altogether my Adsense...
