    I have been here for 19 months and have gained 67 valuable followers

    I could never succeed in making adsense accept me. As suggested by many of friends here, I am changing my identity to "thirdmillennium"

    Let me see if I meet with positivity from adsense. I request my followers to start  following my new name, if possible and if so inclined. Nedless to say, I will do the same.
    New followers too are most welcome.

    Thanks and best regards

      I had tried to link up ad sense to my current "thirdmillenium" with four different email Ids one after the other but to no avail.

      So now I have selected a new identity and a new mail ID created only for thiws purpose.

      The new application also received the sme reply as before:


      Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately, after reviewing your application, we're unable to accept you into AdSense at this time.

      We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.

      - Domain ownership


      Further detail:
      Domain ownership: To complete our review of your website, we need to confirm that you have access to the HTML source code of the URL you've submitted or were given access to AdSense via a third-party platform.

      I. If you host your own website or can edit the HTML code, please complete the following steps:

         1. Access the HTML source code of www.hubpages.com.
         2. Create a separate page on the site and paste the snippet:

      <p>This post confirms my ownership of the site and that this site adheres to Google AdSense program policies and Terms and Conditions:  ca-pub-0895196013145819 </p>

         3. Resubmit the application as described below after replacing www.hubpages.com in the 'Website URL' with the URL of the page on which you have pasted the snippet.

      Any idea what I can do? I tried doing all this but I m not able to.

    First, you should delete the Ad Sense code from this thread.  It shouldn't be on display for the public.

    I'm not sure exactly which blanks you're filling in when you submit the application, but one problem may be that you are giving hubpages.com as your URL.  That's to the main HP site, but it's not to your profile.  I'm just guessing here (and I may not even be recalling correctly, because it was a while ago that I signed up with Ad Sense), but I believe if there's a place where they request the URL what you should have is the URL for the page that shows your profile.

    Someone else can give you a better answer, but I figured I'd give it a shot.  I do know there's one thing or another in the application that kind of trips up a lot of people because of HP's main address.  Whether the problem I'm recalling is exactly what I described, I'm not sure.

      They want only the main URL i e www.xxxxxxxx.com . so they do not accept my profile page.

    Im no expert, but I had a similar problem and think I may finally have sorted it out. I had adsense application rejected on the grounds of domain ownership.

    The problem seems to exist if you apply for adsense from google direct as I did. What I should have done is apply through the hubpages platform. I was told that if i kept applying I would receive the same rejection. The application when received by google will show your ip address, so it makes no difference what email address you use.

    Today I contacted the google adsense help forum and explained my problem, they got back to me and said that they would need to delete my original application in order that I could reapply via the Hubpages platform.(which they say they will do in the next few days)  I dont know if this is the same problem for you, but hope it helps. The domain ownership rejection appears to be problematic depending on how it was originally applied for.

    Just set up a blogger blog, put five posts on it and apply through them. Worked for me, before I even knew what Adsense was.
