Please help me. For almost a month or more now, my adsense earnings have been non-existent. A few weeks ago, I checked my hubs and alot of them had no adsense ads on them. Tonight I rechecked them. After going through 27 of my top hubs, I found that only 9 of 27 of them have adsense ads on them. I know hubpages gets a 40% cut on our earnings, but until recently I have never seen my hubpages with no ads. I don't understand what is going on. Can someone on this forum or the Hubpage Team explain what is happening.
I think you should contact HubPages directly so they can investigate this. Looking at your hubs, it looks to me like the same hub will sometimes display an ad, other times not--and I think--but am not sure--it's only HubPages' adsense ID which displays. If that's true, it suggests that there may be a problem either with your AdSense account's permissions to HubPages to access your AdSense ID, with the coding here, or an AdSense account problem.
adsence all depends on advertisers, If you have chosen a niche subject the chances are you may not have any targeted ads within the niche subject. It may well be that no one is advertising in your chosen subject.
The most common likely cause is that you did not complete the AdSense pin verification process. Does Google have your current mailing address? Did you ignore mail that came from Google? (It probably would have been mailed about 4 months ago)
There is no way for us to know if your account is in that state, it still appears as approved to us. But, you won't earn anything and you'll see blank spots where the ads should be.
I checked my adsense account. They did say they sent me a PIN to my address in February 2009. I never recieved it. Consequently, I requested another one today. However, I do not think that is the problem because this is what Adsense says on that page "As part of our effort to protect the accounts of AdSense publishers, we have mailed a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to the payment address entered in your account. This PIN must be entered on the PIN Information page before any payments can be issued to you.
In the meantime, your account remains active, and you may continue to show ads and accrue earnings. If you have not received your PIN within 3 weeks, you may request that it be resent."
I sent an email to the adsense team, however, I am hoping you can still help me too. I don't know what else to do.
There isn't much we can do, you'll need to request a replacement pin (make sure they send it to the right address). They describe the pin process, and how to request another pin here.
After 4 months they will stop serving ads (they say public service ads, but they will show up as blank spots on HubPages). That's the stage you must have just reached.
If you want we can remove the AdSense association from your account, so that the blank spots will have ads. But if we do that 100% of the Google AdSense earnings will go to HubPages (you can re-associate once you enter your pin, and start earning again).
Thank you, Paul. I guess I will just have to wait.
I think this advice from Adsense is misleading. There is a period of grace where they will still show ads, but I know other people whose earnings have been stopped because they didn't enter their PIN within a reasonable time. You won't be able to start earning again until you get the new PIN and enter it. Make sure your address is correct on Adsense!
Account being active does not mean that they will be displaying ads. This means the account will not be cancelled, which they do if the PIN is not entered for 6 months.
It's possible there was a weirdness going on last night for a while. My Hubs were at one point showing no ads, and neither were any others that I checked--when viewed from MY computer--but other Hubbers could see ads on my Hubs and were not reporting problems with their own.
Following one logical suggestion, I closed out of HP. Did not shut down the computer. Logged back into HP. And the ads were all there and lookin' fine.
I have a question I need clarified. Regardless of the Adsense revenue sharing with Hubpages and whose turn it to recieve adsense revenue, shouldn't adsense ads show up on all of the hubs?
Could someone from hubpages please tell me whats going on. My highest traffic hub is not showing any ads most of the time. When it does its sponsored links.

Is there a technical problem. My other hubs are showing both types of ads. I'm a bit concerned. Is there something wrong with this hub. I just removed half the tags in an effort to be a good boy.
Just to say the thing appears to have resolved itself.
I was concerned that sponsored links was showing up on the high traffic hub but after a lot of reading I'm aware that the weight loss niche is a tough one for a newbie. So I have decided to just do a lot of writing using the hints and tips available.

There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.

Several days ago it was mentioned that the sidebar had disappeared, appeared, disappeared, on HP Hubs. I just noticed on another site which I am frequently on that the ads have also vanished. I checked a couple others...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the...
