I'm Baffled and Frustrated with Google Adsense! Help, Please...

    I've had an AdSense account for around a year now and have made some staggering money, folks-about 7 bucks, I think.  The 'I think' part is there because no matter what I do I cannot sign in any longer to the account.
    I've gone round and round with the forms Google has available and it says that my account is not active and under review-I should expect an email regarding the matter within the week.  Well, it's been around 3 weeks now and nothing.
    I have little computer experience-most of it I've gotten here on HP-so if you are kind enough to comment on this, do dumb it down a bit, please. smile
    Since it's impossible to contact Google-at least that's my impression-I thought I'd come to my pals!
    Thanks in advance and happy 4th.

    On HubPages, go to My Account > Affiliate Settings. What does the "Status" say to the right of the ID you have in there for Google?

      It says 'active' Ironher.  I don't get it!  Also, to the far left, it says 'modify.'

    Everything sounds as it should be. Are you sure you used the correct email address to sign into AdSense? It sounds like you were able to get into it at one time, or else you wouldn't know that you've made a whopping $7.00.

      I think that may be my problem.  I was 'Phished' not long ago in my hotmail account and got terribly confused about how to update my new address.  I've tried both, still no go.

    Lorlie, I don't know either how to contact google. Bumping this thread for you.

      Please excuse me just a minute for swerving off-topic... I've seen the expression "bump" twice recently and haven't the foggiest idea what it means when something is bumped.  Thanks!

      Thanks, Izzy.  I just tried again and no go.  Well, maybe I should contact the HP team.  You think?

        Lorlie, I don't think the HP team can help you on this one. It's between you and AdSense. Your account has clearly not been disabled, or you would have received an email to that effect (did you check your junk mail folder?) and I imagine your HP Affiliate page would not show the status as "Active." It sounds like you're just trying to get in with the wrong email account.

        The response that you got from AdSense (Account not active - Application currently under review) is for new accounts--not established ones. Did you originally sign up with that Hotmail account or did you use a Google account to open your AdSense account?

        Read this post. Whether you signed up for AdSense through Blogger/YouTube or not, it seems to be generating the same error message that you are getting. Hope this helps!

        BUMP technically means = Bring Up My Post

    Bump.... Bump is a message board term to move a post to the top of the forum with a pointless reply so everyone sees that first.

      Apparently, you do not understand the meaning of pointless?

      If a thread is *bumped*, the it was bumped for a reason(point). To think there is no point in the post is not wise, because there would be a point, just like you said- to move the thread back to the top of the threads list, so as to get it noticed.

      It is also a helpful hand to other people, so their topic is not lost.

      Just a thought.

        Not always.

        Bumping is often used by those who wish only to fuel their own fires.

    It may indeed be related to being phished.


    Did you explain to Google that your account was compromised?

    Yeah I would say Irohner is right, maybe you could try the 'forgotten' password option at login??

      And I sincerely hope there was $10,000 lying in your account!

        Oh, Izzy-how I wish...how's $10.53 sound?  You know, it's not the amount I was concerned with, I guess it was the principle of the thing.
        Thanks for your assistance, m'dear! smile

      Hey lorlie6,

      I'm really glad you got back into your account dashboard. If something similar happens again, try the messageboards/forum at google. I've often had questions answered by other members even if it's not possible to contact Google directly.

        Thanks mythbuster-I'll remember that.  But I've been incredibly happy with hubber help as well! smile

    I have made $.03 but have not taken the time to read and decide what I need to do to set up my account in a better way that might actually attract some income. I plan to read this hub and see if there are any suggestions there. I would love to add some books to my account.
