    When I first tried and open an Adsense account I was working with a different hub name and then I deleted that hub but had applied for adsense with that hub name.  Then I created a new hub which I published.  I think the adsense account that is linked to my new hub is for my firsy hub.  Where can I identify that on Adsense it is for the correct hub address?

      So - you really did not like the FAQ you have been pointed to - twice at least?



      Or maybe if you started another thread? This seems hardly enough and what we really need it another dozen or so threads on the same questions...........

      Or you could take a look at the FAQ?

    Your adsense affiliation is linked to a series of numbers/letters. So it won't matter than you've created a new name/ account.

    Regarding the 'finding' best someone else answers because I get confused, though I generally understand the hows and whys of adsense.

    It's the telling that trips me up smile

    I did, I did, I really did, I just don't understand it.  I'm not good with computers, just the writing part.  I'm sorry I don't mean to offend you - I just don't understand.

      Well - opening 7 different threads to ask the same question is not going to help.

      If you have read the FAQ and do not understand it - I am not sure anyone can help, because you are not asking a question that can be answered. I can promise you that your recipe hub will be worth about 12 cents a year though, so I would calm down, read the FAQ again and make sure your adsense account is set up properly.  smile

    I realize you may think I'm dumb but I could use some help.  I have tried to set up my account with adsense I put the code they gav me in the affiliate settings.  I am not sure that code is correct because when I went back to verify the account, the account is not verified.  Then I tried to verify and it went round in circles, I was given a new code and went to the affiliates setting and tried to copy and past and it won't allow me to do that.
    Would you be willing to help me set this up so I could just write and know that the adsense was working.  I don't see anything in the google earnings account, therefore it not working, probably becuase by account is not verified.
    I have read everything over an over and if you could help me I would appreciate it.

    I would love to help, but I still do not understand the problem. You would not have been sent 2 different codes by google adsense - especially not 5 minutes after they rejected your application.

    Contact me through my profile page and I will help if I can.

    But do relax - I have loads of recipe hubs and they make peanuts. wink

      Maybe you'd make more from your recipe hubs if they weren't all about making peanuts, it's not the most exciting dish. big_smile

          I had to google image that to see what it was, but it does look good. smile

          I guess you can't really 'make' peanuts anyway, only grow them, after all they were placed on this Earth as one of Gods many gifts to mankind. hehehe big_smile

    Why would you delete a hub when you wanted to change the title?  It's much easier to just edit the title and change it.

    And if you think that in one day a single Hub is going to show earnings, I do have to say that is dumb.  Unless you have a very well-established web presence and are practiced at gaining and driving traffic, it's going to take weeks to months for you to earn anything from HubPages.

    I would greatly appreciate that - I will contact you later as I have committments today. Perhaps I can contact you later.
    Just to clairfy I had started a hub which was about something completely different.  Rather personal so I don't want to disclose. I decided not to delete it - too embarrassing of a hub.  So I started a new hub, to see if I could get it to work.  That is the recipe one.  My goal is not to have a hub of recipes, believe me I have lots of subjects I want to write about which are much more interesting and I think I could learn a lot and make friends through hubs as I like to hear about other peoples experiences which could be similar to mine with regards to my subjects (not just recipes).So my problem is when I was given a code it was for the first hub in which I put in the affiliate setting.  Now I think that code is related to my first hub.  Adsense says I can link the hubs, but when I get the code and want to add it to the affiliate settings, it doesn't allow me to do that.  It is locked as if I can't delete current code and put in new code.  Also the site is not verified.  I don't know if it's because they are trying to verify hubpages or my hubpages hub.  Very confusing.  I'm not looking to make milions, I just want to write, that's what I like to do and about intereting stuff.  If my account was set-up and running, and all I had to do was write I would be okay, but that's my problem.
    I would be happy if you could help me jsut set it up so all I had to do is write.

      Your Adsense code is not related to just one Hub.  You didn't put your code in the Hub, you posted it in the Affiliate Settings section in "My Account", and that automatically covers all your Hubs. 

      It sounds like you really aren't quite ready for the whole "making money online" thing. Did you understand Darkside's Hubs about How to Hub (the link I gave you before?).

    Well I am still confused. Contact me when you are ready. But - not having the adsense sorted should not stop you from writing. Trust me - you will not be losing any money by writing them now and adding the code later. smile
