My Google AdSense account has an affiliate code (ca-pub-XXX) and is designated as "Active." But I received an email recently from Adsense that says, "Your application has been successfully reviewed. Now you need to create your first ad unit and place the ad code on http://karenlanigan.hubpages.com/ to fully activate your account. Note that before your account is fully activated, only blank ads will appear on your pages." When I go to my hubs, I see ads. And when I followed the AdSense instructions for creating an ad unit, I got some html code that I was told to add to my webpage.
Do I need to do anything with the html code? Is my account already fully activated? Should I ignore the email from AdSense? I'm confused.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
As far as I remember you will not have to add the code to HubPages - you would need to use the code only it this were monetizing a website of your own.
Yeah, you just add your publisher ID (ca-pub-xxxxx) to right spot on the earning settings here. The html code is for people who run their own sites.
I don't remember doing anything but adding the publishers code. If it is saying active then it is active from what i understand. Google does not know that this is not your own website. Their instructions are for web sites. This is an issue that needs to be added to the learning center.

Hi Hubbers, I checked my account yesterday on August 20, 2016 and to my surprise the Google Adsense has approved my application. It is hardly even two months, when I signed up.

Once you have applied you cannot change. It sucks and a lot of people have this problem. I suggest checking the Google adsense forums to see if they have found a work-around yet.
