    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?

        Do you know where to find your publisher's ID? It seems to have been entered in the incorrect place. Copy it and re-enter in the correct place. See if that helps.

    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.
