I just signed up with hubpages a couple days ago and created a hub. I have been approved with Google Adsense and can log in to my Adsense account. In Hubpages, under the "affiliate" section, it shows that my Adsense account is pending and shows a completely different Publisher ID than the one I already have with google adsense. I can click on “sign up” and then select “yes” on “do you already have a google adsense account?” and give the appropriate info (email address, last 5 digits of phone, and postal code). At this point, I get the following error: “We encountered this error when contacting google: the specified client identification header results in an ambiguous adsense account. Please correct the problem if you can and try again, or contact hubpages support at email@example.com”
I cannot edit this pending publisher ID to match my existing Adsense ID. I believe somewhere along the whole process of signing up with hubpages and adsense that I have a pending duplicate account with google adsense. Not sure what to do: If I could just edit the pending Publisher ID under the affiliate section of hubpages to match my actual adsense account publisher ID, there would be no issue. What do I do? Thanks in advance.
I answered by email, but thought it's worth answering here as well, since it comes up every once in a while, and other people might need the info in future.
This error usually occurs when there is more than one AdSense account open under a single email address--this happens by mistake sometimes, and the user is not usually aware that it's even happened. The solution is to contact Google to have any extraneous accounts deleted.
