    Last April 12, I received an email from Google Adsense. It says:


    As mentioned in our welcome email, we conduct a second review of your
    AdSense application once AdSense code is placed on your site(s). As a
    result of this review, we have disapproved your account for the following


    - Site does not comply with Google policies


    Further detail:

    Site does not comply with Google policies: We're unable to approve your
    AdSense application at this time because we feel that your site does not
    comply with Google AdSense policies or webmaster quality guidelines. It's
    our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful
    content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads
    to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this

    I have read the said guidelines but still, I want to learn from a hubber's perspective. What should I do in order to have my Google Adsense account activated? Please share tips and your personal experiences. Thanks!

      There is an appeal process.  Sometimes if you have a new site with little content there is a rejection - this happened when I first started my blog Finding Fiji and applied.  However after two weeks, with daily postings and my appeal it got approved.

          It's harder now to get approved for Adsense than it once was before HP got caught for allowing spammy and misleading content on this site.  I'd try adding more hubs and try again after a couple of months or so.  Good luck! smile

            Hello, I have been disapproved by google adsense many times, and have just stopped trying.  I also lost my google adwords account because I was promoting a website that violated their rules and was not aware I was doing so, and therefore, I can never advertise on their pay per click again. Im sorry about your plight...

              Sorry to hear that, dear. Right now, I have resubmitted my application only once so I will not stop yet. Maybe I'll try adding more content then I'll see if it will be approved. If not, that's when I will decide.

          Maybe also try opening a blog account and aplying from adsense from there.  When you have encough content it will be approved  and that will also be configured to apply to hub pages.  Good luck.

    I randomly checked 3 of your hubs. I have absolutely no idea why Google would close your account. sad

      Well, it wasn't really closed. I can resubmit my application so I still have a chance. Now I am wondering what is wrong with my articles sad

    Have you read the ToS and made sure you're not breaking any Adsense rules?

    Some common subjects that can cause issues include:

    Sex, drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, suicide, violence and other sensitive topics.

      Yes, and I don't think I've written any of those topics. If you have read the email I pasted here, it says I need higher quality content. So I guess that is not the issue here.

    I haven't applied for Adsense yet. I have 2 hubs so it is still to early. The thing is, I have no idea how many hubs I should publish (or how old my Hubpages account should be) before I apply. Does anyone know?
