This is very much difficult question for all the writer. There is no any right time to apply for it. But still people are saying it is recommended to have 15 to 20 articles in your profile with some amount of traffic to your channel. Still It will vary from person to person and quality of the article I can say.
What should if I do I got rejected?
You need not to worry about rejection. It will happens with most of the people while applying for the first time. You just need to improve the quality of your article or video to get it approved. If you use copied content then you will not google adsense for life time.
If you are rejected for one of your site (may be blogger) then you can not use the same google id to apply for google adsense for other site then blogger. You need to create new google id and apply with that new google id. Because google will not allow you to change the url or site address once you apply. As this happens to me also. So don't worry and apply with other google id to get it!
What I need to do if I got approved from Adsense?
You need to link your site to google Adsense after got approved from google. With linking you will not able to make money out of it. To link it you need to do the same procedure which you followed while applying. Here difference is that this time it will ask to you to accept the association rather then applying for it. Once you accept the association you will be able to see your earning in Adsense account. It will take around 2 to 4 days to show your earning in your Adsense account.
How to Link?
It is import to link your account with your adsense account after getting apprvoal mail from google. Login once to your adsense account and confirm the details provided by you. Then associate your websites, which you want to add for making money or revenue sharing.
What is "Adsense for content" and "Hosted Adsense for content"?
You can see "Hosted Adsense for content" if you have associated your youtube channel with Adsense account. If you have associated your blogger or hubpages account then you can see the "Adsense for content" in your adsense account.
Some of the things (Dos & Don't) you need to keep in mind while dealing with Google Adsense:
- Don't Apply frequently at short period of time without changing or adding much content
- Don't use copied content from any other sites
- Don't use adult content
- Don't use image directly from google image. Use the image which you are illegally entitle to use.
- You can use the free images from pixabay or flickr which is illegally allowed to use.
- Read Google TOS carefully
- Content is King, use quality content with enough length (above 1000 words)
- Use of back links
- In some of the country it is required to wait for 6 months of waiting period of time before applying for adsense. But frankly speaking I have seen people getting adsense in less then 6 months of time.
- Don't click on ads which is displayed on your article or videos.
- Don't ask your friends to click on ads, else result can be banned from Google adsense
- You can not upload the same article to multiple sites (like hubpages & blogger)
- You can unpublish your article in one site & use it for other site.
- Use google analytics
- Use google webmaster tool
- Use google keywords

Once I got adsense, I came across many different terms which I am not able to understand. So I will tell you all that terms meaning which is required to understand the traffic to your channel as per my knowledge.
