I know that this topic is often discussed and Ive read most of the hubs to do with AdSense, but I don't know anymore how to proceed, since I seem to have violated some rules. Not that I have any idea why or what I have done to deserve this penalty. Can anyone from the hubpages team help me?
The only advise from Google is that I have to remove my Google account and start over again. That is not an option. then I lose years of work and followers, both on Facebook and Google+
Shot in the dark, did someone claim that you infringed their copyright? That's the only reason I can think of for this. Google really only bans for: trying to game the ad system, infringing on copyright, illegal content. When you get your account suspended, you have the right to appeal. I don't think it's anything HubPages could help you with.
Did they give you any more information?
What have the emails from AdSense said was the problem? Also, you've only been with Hubpages for a few months, so your statements about losing years of work is a bit odd.
Hubpages can't help you, this is between you and AdSense. I recommend you go to the AdSense forums where you can talk about your situation with other AdSense users and get advice/help from them. Don't read Hubs about AdSense, go read AdSense's program guidelines and help pages.
If your account has been suspended, you can file an appeal. If you are just under some sort of website penalty, you can look that up in your account and get more info about what to do.
Like relache said- you will need to go over to the Google Adsense forums. You can appeal the decision, but beforehand you need to read the email that Google sent you, and find exactly what the violations are. Go back to the guidelines/policies, see exactly which behavior triggered it... and when you find it, you'll need to fix it on all of your domains before going back to Google to appeal. Otherwise, they won't be very likely to meet you halfway. I hope you get everything straightened out, and the best of luck!
Google never suspend your account until and unless you break any one guideline or terms of Adsense.
If you have approved Adsnese and even you are not using it, account will be active. So try to find where you did a mistake.
You can reclaim you Adsense account, just explain honestly and professionally exact reason or mistake if you can. They will reconsider you, its my personal experience. Google love honesty, and they will never want to loose a single cent of Adword advertiser for fraud people.
The Examiner...Who sent you the notice?
This notice below appeared on my hubpages - earnings the under Adsense tab.
- It appears that your Google AdSense Account, with the publisher id ca-pub-2642422452168963 is no longer associated with HubPages.-
I have no idea what number that is? No idea how It got there. Unless I saw that number on an email reply from Google+ during the time that I was still waiting for an approval from Google? Google team later said that number is not an Adsense no...I might have made a mistake thinking that it was? I was clearly out of my depth.
Ashraf Kamal - ....(honestly and professionally exact reason or mistake if you can.) What has been implied here, that I have been dishonest? -
This is the only sentence that came close to what must have happened:
Ashraf Kamal- If you have approved Adsnese and even you are not using it, account will be active. So try to find where you did a mistake. -
I have in great detail written to them and made all effort to try to find out what i have done wrong in Google+. Their suggestion was that I simply open a different Google and gmail account.
angryelf - : find exactly what the violations are -
I think that the violations has to do with this number - id ca-pub-2642422452168963 google + told me that is was NOT an adsense number, but I have no idea where that number came from?
relache - "Also, you've only been with Hubpages for a few months, so your statements about losing years of work is a bit odd."
I was referring to my Google+ - gmail account and the years that I have been using that email account, ( more than 8 years! ) NOT hub pages.
jkcki - No they never mentioned that I infringed their copyright, which I NEVER would have. I got the impression that they have no idea themselves where that number came from. That is why they suggested that I just start all over again. Meaning close Google+ and my gmail. that I have been using for many years
Thanks all of you for your replies. All I wanted to know was if the team of hubpages could help, but I know understand that is clearly not the case.
Gmail and G+ have nothing to do with AdSense. Neither do any of Google's other services. If you lose AdSense, that's all that is effected.
Having an account become no longer associated means somehow it just got cut off from HubPages. You still have an AdSense account, but you need to recheck all the settings in your account on this end, and in your AdSense account, to re-establish the connection.
When I'm asked to delete my google account, does that not mean automatically all the other connections, like google+?
My total confusion started due to this sentence: - You are currently signed into the Google Account .........@gmail.com, which is either not an active AdSense account, or still pending an approval. This account cannot be used to - monetize your content.-
I made the mistake of thinking that I had to create a different google account tn order to - monetize your content.-
I created another google account by using my Yahoo email address. Then I signed up again for adsense with the new google account.
That is when the problem started. ( I think ) I had to my knowledge never received an adsense email reply, but I saw that in the meantime I did start earning on hubpages?
And suddenly that was suspended!
Thanks for your replies....everyone.
I asked who sent you the notice because you had mentioned Google, Google+, AdSense and Facebook. Google has nothing to do with Facebook, just the other three.
Have you been checking your HP Earnings page?
Did you receive the notice in email? The notice may have been false (spam). If it was from AdSense then it would have been in the AdSense notification box on their site.
No I never did receive an adsense notiication in my email, but at the same time I saw on my earning page that I had earned 018cents...? So that was unexpected?
To know if you are cut off at this end, just go to Earnings page and see if your AdSense acct. says 'Active'.
This is how to connect your AdSense account to HubPages:
It may be that Google think you are trying to create two AdSense accounts which is against their TOS. You could try writing to Adsense Help https://support.google.com/adsense/?hl=en and explain that you had not meant to create a new account. They will take some time to check that you are one and the same person, but they usually listen to appeals that are genuine.
Oh the link gets me to a forum where I had several discussions with them. They gave me the advice to create a new Google address and sign in again. Then after a few days the same person on the forum told me to delete my Google address. I was under the impression that she meant my original Google address? the one I already had for more that 8 years! She just said YES!
I was not at all happy with that advice and told her so. In the meantime i have deleted the new Google address I had used to apply again! Now I better wait and see if anything is going to change? No idea. I think I was very unlucky to have dealt with people at google just before Christmas.
I'm sorry to hear the problems you're having. They seem to have changed the system since I last used it. I had an AdSense problem about a year ago and I was able to have a direct email conversation with a staff member rather than use the forum.
I don't know what else to suggest, because only Google Adsense are going to be able to sort this out for you.
