Google Adsense doesn't permit multiple accounts--What?

    I have applied for Google Adsense, and thought I'd done everything right, but I got an email from them, stating this:

    ---
    Thanks for your interest in Google AdSense. While reviewing your
    application, we noticed that your account information matches a currently
    approved AdSense account associated with xxxxxx@gmail.com. Please
    remember that your ad code from that account can be used on any website
    that complies with our program policies. However, because our policies do
    not permit multiple accounts, we're unable to accept your new application
    at this time.
    ----

    There's more to the email, but this is the main part that I don't understand.  Is it because my husband already has a Google Adsense account set up under the above email address? 

    I set mine up to go under a different email address, so I just don't understand what I'm supposed to do here...

    Any help would be appreciated!

      Google ran a track on your address,which most likely ended up at your husbands e-mail,which you have used occasionally.

    Thanks firead45--But what does that mean?  I haven't used his email account, but we do share the same computer--would that be the problem?

    And if it is--what do I do next?

      You can have 2 accounts on the same computer they just need to have different names and email addresses.  Your best bet is to just resubmit an application, or prior to doing that, contact google and explain what you are trying to do.

        Thank you--We are using different names and email addresses, that's what is so confusing here!

    The only way is to use a Computer with a different IP Nummber Than the one your husband is using, you will probably need a separate address also, and phone number. Use any computer to set up the account, but create another e mail address for yourself from your husbands computer.Don't show anything remotely the same as on his original account.
    You are not doing anything illegal. You are entitled to have an account.

      Do you mean a different home address?  And I don't have a clue what you mean about using a computer with a different IP number, sorry...I signed up with a different email address than my husband's, but they are saying I'm using the same one!

      I apologize for sounding so dense here, but the more I read, the more confused I'm getting, lol...

        No, No but never give out your personal address or any personal details unless you are certain whom you are dealing with...........No one is who they seem on the net. Every computer has an IP Number which shows location of computer, and is effectively an address for that Computer. In other words country of Origin is traced this way, e mail address is something which you create and use, for your transactions, I make a habit never to trust anyone, unless they prove to me who they are, I correspond with only those known to me. I was worried when you said Do I give my address, NEVER>

    Why not just use your husband's account - you'll reach payout quicker? To setup your own everything needs to be different: home address/phone/IP address/email/bank a/c for payment

      I'd suggest following Lissie's advice.  If you want to see your own earnings separate from his, you can set up URL channels for your hubs and his hubs (or sites, as the case may be).

      TamCorposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Lissie--Thank you for the suggestion--I don't have a problem at all using his, if I knew how to set it up without causing any problems.

      Should I just close the one I opened in my name then? Is there a place I can go to to find out how to use his account?

      So sorry for all of the questions, but this is all new to me...

    Thank you Maddie--I think that sounds like the best idea, I agree.  I guess my next step is to figure out the best way to do this...

      All you need to do is ask him for his AdSense for Content publisher's ID.  Should start with ca-pub- and then a series of numbers.  You enter this on your affiliate settings page here on HubPages.  You can find instructions to help you do this at http://hubpages.com/help/googleadsense

        Thanks so much Maddie--I just went in and did that, and now the setting says "active".  When I click on to check earnings, it now shows my husband's email address at the top, and what I believe are my earnings, since the last time he checked, his earnings were higher...

        Does this sound right?  Is there anything else we need to do?  Should we change the payee name to both of our names, or leave it as his?  I was concerned about this only because of future tax issues...

        Thanks again for all of your help, this new hubber really appreciates it!

    Google also check your ip address. proxy is no good either as they will match it with your home address. One thing you can do is ask your internet service provider to change your ip. however they will not change your ip without good cause, to get around this just tell them someone keeps attacking your computer, planting viruses and you feel your private information is at risk let them know you have read on many guru forums that changing the ip address will stop the attacks and to achive the ip change i must contact my isp.

    They should change it for you.

    Once you have the ip changed go delete all your internet history, cookies, use a different email address and website address for a free website try http://bumdig.com this will give you a new unique url for google. once your account is active you can put your ads on any site even the one they declined.

    Do the above and you should get accepted for a new Google adsense account.

      getpaidtopost--Thanks for those suggestions, I appreciate you taking the time to post--since I just went ahead and did and Lissie and Maddie suggested, I will keep this in mind if any other future problems occur!

    I am presuming the other account has been blocked. Otherwise I don't think Google would reject your new application.
    Sorry if i read this wrong. if it has been blocked follow my last post above.

      Do you mean my husband's account?  As far as we can tell, his is okay--I really hope I didn't do anything to mess his up, as he's been a member for quite awhile now...

      NO apologies necessary--I have been so lost, trying to figure all of this out, that I may not have explained it very well....

          lol...Thanks ripplemaker, yeah, sometimes we get a tad carried away, haha. 

          Okay, I give...what's SEO??? smile 

          I think I need to take some sort of computer classes to understand all of this jargon...it's SO confusing!

            SEO:  System Engine Optimization. 

            Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines. If your website or hub appears on the front page, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine.

            As for you and Tom, I still find it cute. smile lol

        I thought that the first advise you gave on this subject, was possibly naughty, or provocative, so you were joking, Truly.

          No I was worried that she was going to give her e mail address out. Thats a no no!!!!! Or were you referring to the IP thing, Its terrible but more wide spread than we think.
