Hey HF, Sounds like you've got everything right, it's just the way Hubpages affiliate settings seem to operate. I get the same message with Amazon and Analytics as well. Adsense says active, amazon and analytics say set. If you don't get a lot of traffic yet with Amazon ads you can test it out by clicking on a few of your amazon ads and then seeing if they show tomorrow. Don't do that with the google ads though as that will get you into trouble.
