I need some guidance here...
Adsense sent me an email saying my URL has to be mine...not hubpages/myname!!!! What do I do now?
This is the exact URL you need to use, your profile page:
If what Website said doesn't work, read through this. A lot of us haven't done it in months, so it is hard to say.
The URL I gave is the only one that will work if using HubPages as basis for an application. Someone who applies based upon their own website or blog, that is a different situation.
@ website examiner, thanks..but... I did give the URL of my profile page and they said that the domain has to be mine.. not domain/ me!
@mikeydoes...will read the hub on the topic...thanks...
I think you must have misunderstood the letter or there is some error in your application. There is no doubt that if you apply through HubPages, you must use the exact URL I have given you.
This issue has been asked and answered a thousand times before. Research the forums if you will. Read the FAQs, the Learning Center. There is nothing more that I can do for you.
I will try again W.E! but i am sure that there is no other error with my application. Lets see. I will post their reply right here for further dissection!
Could you post the relevant part of the email that you have already received? (Please remember, if there is as much as one character wrong in the URL you have provided, they cannot verify your address).
This is what they sent me last time

That is their standard reply when they have been unable to verify domain ownership. It aims at webmasters, not hubbers.
The only way they can understand that you are part of the HubPages system is by them examining your profile page. From there, they can verify your profile and your hubs.
When ever a hubber provides a wrong URL - that is, anything else than their exact profile page - Adsense will respond in this way.
So my advice will still be to reapply, double-checking that the URL for your profile page - as I showed above - is correct.
Wishing you luck!
Done that ... keeping my fingers crossed...toes and eyes too... thanks for prompt help and support....
