I applied to Adsense on HubPages because it seemed so automated and easy. However there are lots of issues and snags.
My Adsense status is 'pending' and has been for weeks now. I have never gotten an email from Google.
While my status is pending I have Adsense ads all over my hubs. Strangely they are not always there. Who is getting paid for those ads? Who is exploiting my material?
I gather my Adsense status is based on the quantity and quality of my hubs, but I have a blog and a very large, content rich website Grub 'n' Gear. Those should have been taken into consideration when I applied to Adsense, but there was no opportunity in the process to bring those to Google's attention when I applied.
I need to turn my attention to Grub 'n' Gear for the next few months, as business is seasonal, and I probably will not have the time to add hubs for awhile, but I really would like to get Adsense approved for the Grub 'n' Gear website.
Is there a way to revoke the HubPages application?
Until you link your Adsense id, Hubpages earns from 100% of adverts displayed on your hubs (-10% if someone referred you + 9-12% if people link to you).
Not sure about revoking it. It IS better to apply when you have ten or more quality hubs - or a site. So maybe try and do some more hubs and see if that speeds up the review.
Just do NOT apply for a new account - that can get you a permanent ban. Only one account per household.
EDIT: Your account is only four days old, how can it have been pending for weeks? Also, it's likely your hubs will be taken down unless you remove/change those photos. Watermarked photos are not allowed on the site.
Sorry, you are right about the time frame. I am getting confused as to where and when I have been publishing.
Those are not watermarks. They are my photos with the Grub 'n' Gear name and logo on them. That is me in the canoe.
I would suggest reading the FAQ pages. Hubpages will run adds until you get your ID. If it bothers you, you can turn the ads off by marking the hub non-commerical.

First time when I tried to singup to Adsense through Hubpages, they mentioned "in red line" that I need at least 10 high quality hubs to get approved from Adsense. Saying "top quality" and "At Least" means I might need to write more hubs.I opened a forum about it...

Being new I'm not sure I totally understand the way to generate income here in HP. Am I to understand that one must have an Adsense account to earn income?

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...
