Confused about Adsense.

    On my google adsense app it says my account is still under review - has been for a couple weeks.
    On HP it says active and my publisher code is listed.
    But.. I got an email from Adsense today saying I need to place my ad code on my site, which to my understanding is unnecessary with HP.
    Also, Adsense isn't showing any traffic or earnings. All of my earnings have been from the HP Ad Program.

    Am I doing something wrong?

      Hi sagolia,

      If your AdSense ID is associated with your HubPages account and says "active," then you don't need to do anything more. HP places the ads for you automatically.

      Most users find that they make mush less on AdSense alone (as shown on the AdSense website) when HP Ads are enabled, but that they make more overall. In other words, if you were to turn off HP Ads, your AdSense earnings would increase a bit, but you are likely making more from your AdSense + HP Ads together than you would from just AdSense. Hope that makes more sense.
