I am having difficulty signing up for the Hubpages Earnings Program. I go to the Hubpages Earnings Program Settings, under Ad Program the status says "not active", so I click the configure button and it says the following:
While your Google AdSense account on HubPages is active, your publisher id was simply typed in to our affiliate settings box. This means that it has not been verified to us as valid by Google. In order to activate the Ad Program, you must associate your Google AdSense account with HubPages through the AdSense API. It only takes a few minutes. You may begin that process here.
Below that it says:
1. Sign up for Hubpages Earnings Program - Complete
2. Associate a Google AdSense Account - Incomplete
So I click on the Associate a Google AdSense Account link. Next page says, Do you already have a Google AdSense Account? I click Yes & Next.
Next page says:
You are currently signed into the Google Account
Would you like to use this account to sign in to AdSense?
I click on Yes (because that is my email associated with my existing AdSense account) I sign in with my password. It asks me to specify content language, for which I choose English and click "Accept Association" it redirects me back to Hubpages Earnings Page Every Time. I have done this dozens of times over the last week.
I tried enabling cookies. Didn't help
Can You Help?
Did you go to directly to your your Ad Sense account to see whether or not you have any notifications and what they say?
I checked my Ad Sense acct. and I don't have any notifications.
Have you received an email from Adsense (possibly in spam) asking if you wish to approve the association?
Sign into your Adsense account, click on "Allow & Block Ads">"Manage">"Access & Authorization">"Third Party Access" and see if Hubpages has a pending request.
Thanks for your help. I did what you said and it says that it is enabled for Hubpages. Doesn't make any sense why I can't associate it.
Thanks for everyones help. The change the hubpages team made fixed everything and I am now signed up.

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up. I could not find anything like this in the help section, is there something else I need to...

I was wondering if Hubpages offer a revenue sharing HTML code that can be implemented into the hubpages members own websites.The Hubpages Ad programme seems to work better than google adsense in respect of how much can be earned per 1000 page views, I would much rather have hubpages adverts being...

I already have an active google adsense account. After signing up with hubpage, I wanted to link it to my hub. I received the confirmation email to authorize hubpage to link to my google adsense. However, when I check back with my affiliate settings in hubpage, it is still not set. I've tried to...

Okay, I just signed up like two seconds ago, and I am seriously confused. I can figure it all out (I think for the most part) on my own, once I get reading into everything, but I have one major question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere.Do I have to have a google adsense account to...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...
