    I recently examined my adsense account and now have to try and understand what it all meant. I am making some money there so obviously something is working.

    Apparently I have 'requests for ads' on some of my pages (I'm taking that to be good news, lol) but I have 'crawler errors' and they 'can't access those pages'. I have noticed recently that some of my pages are crawled regularly, and others haven't been crawled for over a week. I'm not sure whether google crawls that show in my hub stats are the same as adsense crawling. I confess, however, I don't check individual pages frequently and obviously my level of understanding of the whole process is minimal.

    I copied the things that I'm supposed to be fixing ...

    "Your page has (ranging between 7 and 13) blocking script resources and 1 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.

    Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.

    Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.

    Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.

    Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times."

    There was also something about 'above the line' or similar. I don't seem to have copied that bit. Geez. I wish this process was a lot more simple.

    I have absolutely no idea how to achieve any of those things other than compressing my photos and reloading them but I'm not sure that's worth the effort if I don't fix everything else.

    Am I right in believing these are issues for HP techs, not individual writers? And, if so, would you please tell me if they can be addressed?

    Thanks. smile

      If the crawl errors are all related specifically to URLs, then it could be for content that is no longer published.
      For further assistance, please email (team at hubpages dot com) a screen shot of the errors to which you are referring as well as a list of example URLs and we can look into it further.

    If you are talking about AdSense in relation to your HubPages articles then the issues you mention can only be improved by the HP tech staff. However, if you also have your own blog or website then you should have the tools needed to adjust and amend your pages to improve the AdSense experience.

    I’ve just checked my AdSense account and I have no crawler errors. As I use HP too, I can only assume that the crawler errors mentioned in your AdSense account do not relate to HP. Are there any other websites that you have your AdSense linked to?

      Thanks, Beth.
      I used adsense on another website years ago, but it hasn't been up for about 4 years. I'd be surprised if it is in any way linked, but I will go back and have another look, thanks.

    Hi LongTimeMother
    In your AdSense account; go into “Settings” by clicking on the flower-like icon in top right of screen.
    Click on “Access and Authorisation” in menu on left hand side of screen. Then click on “Third Party Access”.
    Under “Host” you’ll see a list of all the blogs and sites on which your AdSense ads are displayed. You can enable or disable this function for any sites that you no longer think comply with Google policies etc.
