I have received the below from Google Adsense and I do not quite understand what they are talking about. Any ideas? The site they are talking about is http://paganreports.com, but I am wondering if this will also effect HubPages?
We’re contacting you because you’re using AdSense for Domains to monetize your undeveloped domains. After evaluating the benefits of our partner network, we’ve decided to retire the Hosted domains product within AdSense. Going forward, undeveloped domains will only be served through our existing AdSense for Domains distribution network.
Our records show that 1 of your Hosted domains will be affected by this upcoming change, which will follow the schedule below:
March 21: You’ll no longer be able to create new Hosted domains
April 18: Hosted domains will become inactive and it’ll no longer be possible to earn from them
June 27: Hosted domains will no longer be available in AdSense accounts
To continue monetizing your undeveloped domains, you can migrate your domain portfolio to any domain parking provider. Find out how in our Migration Guide:
I was under the impression that Adsense for domains was just for "parked domains" with no actual content?
That's right. Dale, you can ignore it - you're not using it unless you have a site somewhere with nothing but ads on it.
That was my understanding as well, WryLilt and Marisa. However, that page is the one Google Adsense is referring to when I log in there. That has not been parked for at least two years now, I believe, lol.
Maybe they are REALLY bad at keeping records?
Nope, it sounds like their records are right - you may have done what I did, and clicked on Adsense for Domains while you were trying to find your way around Adsense at the start!
Bottom line is, you can just ignore it, because you never actually used it.
Are you sure you didn't set up Adsense for Domains for that site at some point?
I recall being unsure whether to use Adsense For Domains or Adsense for Content on my first website. After all, it was a domain so "Adsense for Domains" sounded right!
Good point. Either that or the OP forgot to cancel it.
Not sure, Marisa. I would not even know how to change that, lol.
