    My google adsense is "ACTIVE" already in my earnings settings but when I go to my google adsense account my application still looks pending.It's like what you see in the picture. Why is that?

        It is difficult to read the writing on your photo but I think it is saying that Google needs you to verify your address and phone number. If so, then you will need to do this asap.

        Unsure why Hubpages is showing your account as being active, but it is Adsense that you need to get approval from. It may well be that your account is active but that you won't receive any payments until Google has all of the information that it has requested.

        Sorry that I can't provide you with a definitive answer, but this would be my best guess.

          Thanks Ma'am, but I already verified my address and phone number before. I think that the "green check" signifies that I already did it. I just really don't know why it still looks pending.. sad

            The bit underneath says that they are working on setting you up. I'm guessing that it says that it will take a day, but maybe longer.

            Are you showing any earnings on Hubpages?

              I have the exact same problem on my account John, you are not alone. Your picture is exactly what I see when I open AdSense and I too have completed the steps mentioned at the top regarding phone number and address.

              I have earned a grand total of $0.57 from my active/inactive account so far lol

                You'll notice Christy is advising him to contact the team for help, so I'd advise you to do the same.

      Please email team@hubpages.com for questions and help regarding your AdSense account.

    My account looks the same way. Says active and my Google Adsense is the same as yours. I was wondering if they were waiting for me to get more views or something so it would be more profitable to them first. Thinking it just takes a lot longer than the day or less. Just like my account stayed on that 3 days or more before connected for about a month. I sent an email to them and then it moved to the same as your reads above to the one day or longer. Maybe we just need to be patient??

    My AdSense account looks exactly the same and has done for around 4 days. It it showing on my HubPages as active also.

    The first part, the 3 days or so section, took well over a month to get through.

    I think Google should remove the "less than a day" section as it is very misleading and can take months to get through approvals!

    Thank you ma'am and sir! I already sorted it out. It seems like there was a little bit of confusion in the configuaration settings of my adsense account. I have 2 adsense accounts, one for hubpages and the other one for my website from weebly. The affiliate code given to me in hubpages was for the adsense account for my website in weebly in which it should be for the one associated with hubpages. I don't why it became like that. Thats why I just made a different hubpages account and delete all of my information and copy my articles from my previous account.

      That is a concern.  You are not allowed to have two Adsense accounts, it's against Adsense TOS.   If they discover you've got two, they could ban you from Adsense altogether.

    But am i allowed to delete the forst account?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image94
      Marisa Wrightposted 2 months ago in reply to this

      Be careful - before you delete anything, check what your Adsense account allows you to do.

      Once upon a time, if you had an Adsense account you could use it on ANY website you liked.  It's not like that now.

      If you applied for Adsense for your own website on Weebly, it's likely that account allows you to use that Adsense account anywhere you like.  So what you should do is use that account on HubPages.

      If you applied for a new account through HubPages, it's likely that account allows you to use it on HubPages ONLY, and there is no way to get permission to use it on Weebly.   So that's the one you should close.

    I already emailed them. But no answer yet. What did Matt told you to do to solve the problem Ian?

      I was told that my account is active and to be patient. He thinks Google may just have a backlog of these accounts to clear.

    How many days did it take to fully function from the day that your google adsense account says "active"?

        Just as an update, I have literally JUST got a confirmation email to say I am now fully connected to AdSense. So yes, it is just a case of patience.
