Should I use 'Allowed Sites' feature under AdSense Setup tub?

    I'm a little confused about "Allowed Sites" feature under AdSense Setup tab. There are 2 options:
    "Allow any sites to show ads for my account"
    "Only allow certain sites to show ads for my account"
    Which one is to be used for hubpages?
    Does it make a difference in earnings if you choose one over another? I've been looking into this issue for sometime and I still have no answer. Thank you

    The feature is designed to prevent someone from using your Adsense code on a "bad neighborhood" domain in an attempt to get your account closed - so that is something a wicked competitor might try to do. Not very likely. Only allowing certain sites is the safest option, and will not impact your earnings; it merely means that you have to manually authorize what sites that you allow you affiliate ID to be used on.

        You are welcome. Ads would definitely still be displayed on HubPages' 40% share of the page impressions. As for your own 60%, I imagine they would not run. If they did run, it would be under HubPages' Adsense account, not yours.

    I imagine that some hubbers may have multiple websites under one adsense account but if I am only interested in just one, hubpage, then I can just choose the second option and enter hubpages.com in that window.
