But Google is very choosy as to who they allow to join their affiliate program. I have given you some tips on how to get accepted.

How to Get Accepted as a Google Adsense Affiliate

Have you tried to join only to be declined? It is very frustrating when this happens. You need to familiarize yourself with their strict terms and conditions. They do not allow gambling, porn, profanity or hate sites. What if you have a great site that does follow the Google rules and your application to join the affiliate program is still declined.

Step by Step instructions

Reasons why the Google Adsense affiliate program may have refused your application.

  • You live in India or some other countries in Asia. You must have an online presence of at least six months.
  • Your website does not follow the terms and conditions
  • Your website or blog is not good enough.
  • This could be bad grammar or spelling.
  • You should have at least twenty articles or blog posts
  • Google expects you to update the site very often.
  • It also looks at the content of your Blog or website for well written and informative articles and entries.
  • Age makes a difference too because the longer the URL has been out there in cyberspace the more traffic and participation your site attracts.

Making Money Online

Google does not know you It therefore does not rate you high enough to allow you to join. You need to create a presence for yourself through a website and user name on the internet. It is like the old adage of how can you get experience if no one with give you a job to get that experience.

Well there is something you can do that will get you accepted by Google Adsense on your Blogs and Websites. This is not a short cut or a quick solution. I am assuming that if you write blogs and websites then you have some knowledge of writing short articles and news pieces. Also if you are reading this article then you have an interest in earning money online from your blogs and websites with Google Adsense.

HubPages is Rated Highly

In order to get accepted quickly by the Google Adsense affiliate program you can join a writing site that Google does know and rates its members very highly. Joining Google Adsense made easy. Once you have joined HubPages and written at least twenty well written articles then you can apply to Google to join their Affiliate program.

HubPages have the link in the 'My Account' section under 'Affiliate Settings'. Just follow the very simple steps provided. Once you have been accepted by Google Adsense you can also add the Google Adsense affiliate code that is unique to you. Then you can add advertisements to your Blogs and Websites and earn money from your writing online.

Join a Good Writing Site

HubPages has very high standards for writers on the site. But this is to your advantage because you know that only good quality articles, poems and stories will be accepted.

      I am glad you found this article useful teachersincharge. Google is changing its terms and conditions for allowing writers to get on their Affiliate Program but it is worth the work and wait once they accept you.

      Blogs are very easy to navigate. I have a few and use Blogger .com. With Hubpages still in the dog house after the Panda Slap I have stopped writing articles here and I am starting to put more time into my blogs. You can use your Amazon and Google Adsense ids there too.

      Why not try it Availiasvision but it is best to use one blog for each separate subject. They are free and you can create as many as you like. Good luck

      After starting my first website this week, I appreciate HubPages even more. It's been pretty frustrating, but with HubPages it's super simple to start earning from Adsense. I just can't figure out how to get it to work on my new site. HubPages, I love you!

      Making money writing articles online does take time. But once you have been accepted as an affiliate by Google Adsense and Amazon then you will eventually start to earn money every day from your writing.

      Good luck with your writing career here on HubPages bollywoodcarpet

      vespawoolf as far as I know Google goes off your IP address and not your postal address so that could be the problem with the delay.

      Thank you for the helpful advice. My mailing address is in the U.S., but I suppose my physical location may be causing a delay. I'll keep plugging away in hopes it will pay off one day.

      Thank you everyone for taking the time to leave a comment.

      vespawoolf. There does seem to be some parts of the world where Google takes its time in approving you. I know anyone living in India has to wait for six months.

      I am not sure whether the country you are living in has a few months delay there too.

      My advice would be to keep writing as much as you can and at least when you are approved you will have established your place on the search engines and attracting decent traffic. That way you can start earning decent income straight away.

      It's so true that HP is the perfect venue for a new writer. I have been partially accepted to AdSense and received an email to that effect several weeks ago. However, the application still hasn't been approved and nothing I do seems to change that fact. I'm very frustrated but trying to be patient. Any advice?

      Thanks for this info. I was wondering what the Google adsense standard was. I obviously applied too early after writing only one article. I'm hoping I'll have more luck this time round.

      Hello Doc Wordinger thanks for reading. I am not sure because i waited and applied for the two of them at the same time. But both Google and Amazon will give you a better standing because they rate Hubpages very highly.

      Good luck with your applications

      Thanks for writing this hub Viking. Since I signed up to Hubpages, I've been wondering how many quality hubs are required before applying for Adsense. I'll give it a shot after two, as you suggest, and see what happens. Do you happen to know if Amazon has similar criteria to Adsense?

      Thanks for reading mailxpress. Yes I only started writing online 9 months ago although I have been writing for over 20 years. I agree it does take time for the hubs to make money but it is worth the wait.

      I've been writing seriously writing online for a couple of years now and I can't read enough about Adsense and other revenue streams. I love it and appreciate the fact that I can create passive income if I continue to do what I'm doing. I also just realized that the more mature a hub, blog or website gets the better the odds especially when I update and edit my work regularly. I enjoyed the read.
