    Hi there
    I'm a newbie so please forgive me if this is old (looked at many Q&A and didn't see an exact match).

    When I go into "Earnings", the Ad Program shows 2 steps; #1 is "Sign up for the HubPages Earnings Program" which shows complete. #2 is AdSense, which is incomplete. I applied for AdSense account and was turned down because of "insufficient content". I understand from other Q&A that this is because I am a newbie and only had one hub when I applied...I will re-apply at some point.

    My question I earning revenue right away on my hubs from the HubPages Earning Program even without AdSense? Or does HP not kick-in until I have Adsense as well?

    ty !

      You need Adsense before you can sign up for the ad program

      You cannot earn without Adsense association... That may have been an error. .. You can write around ten HUb that are unique and useful and apply ffor adsense.. the sooner the better.. smile Welcome to Hubpages smile
