Hi, has anyone applied to Google Adsense this week? I tried yesterday and today and get this error:
"Cannot connect to the server. Please check your Internet connection and try again."
I tried on different browsers, without a firewall and on my phone on 4g.
Sorry you are having problems setting up AdSense with your account.
It sounds like there may be a connectivity issue with your computer, ISP, etc.
I would suggest trying these trouble shooting steps.
1. Clear your browser cache
2. Check for and install any browser or OS updates.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Reset any network hardware (cable modems, DSL devices, routers, switches, etc)
5. Try another browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Opera.
Hi Matthew, I tried the 5 steps, and still no luck!
It could be an issue with your ISP. Is there another network connection or a computer that uses another ISP that you could try (machine at a library, etc.)?
What sort of internet do you have (dial up, DSL, cable, etc.)
What is your ISP and where are you located geographically?
You may want to contact the ISPs support department.
What browsers, browser versions, and operating system are you using?
I will try another computer on Shaw Cable internet this afternoon. I am on a Bell DSL network in Northwestern Ontario. I did however try on mobile, connected to a Rogers data plan, with the same results.
I am using Firefox 41.0, and also tried Internet Explorer.
Tried on a different computer on a different provider, still getting the same message
Sorry you are still having problems.
I have had no other reports today of any issues associating AdSense.
If it was an issue with the AdSense servers I would expect it to affect more people. The internet is a weird beast, so it could a weird DNS or other issues that is only affecting a certain region of the world.
You are applying for a new account or I would have you contact AdSense to see if there is an issue, but they would likely pass you back to your ISP or to us.
Unfortunately, there is limited testing I can do as Google only allows a single AdSense account per person so I can't apply for a new one to test to see if I have the same issue.
I contacted our engineering team earlier when you first reported the error and they did not find any issues at that time.
Looks like its been an issue for some before when i google the issue. there is also a hubber that had this issue, but the old discussion is closed for reply. However no solution was posted - http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/124601
That is from a year ago and it would point to a potential issue with that persons network connectivity as well.
could it have something to do with my existing google account?
Possibly as people are permitted only one AdSense account, Google site could be blocking the login.
If you already have an account with AdSense then you should not apply for a new one, but add HubPages to your AdSense account settings and add the AdSense code for that existing account to HubPages.
I would suggest contacting Google AdSense support.
I do not have an existing account no.
I was looking for Google AdSense support today. The only link i found was for new applicants, but one mandatory feild was for your URL and it would not accept my hubpages address.
You don't have a link to their support email do you?
I'm a little confused. You just posted this:
"could it have something to do with my existing google account?"
That sounds like you were saying you do have an existing Google account.
I do not think that Google AdSense support has an email address.
I think you have to use a web contact form to get in touch unless you have a very high volume of activity.
Sorry for the confusion. What i meant was that my existing "google account" as in my gmail / youtube account. For step 1 it states:
You are currently signed in as XXXXX@gmail.com. Would you like to use this account to sign up for AdSense?
Whichever account you choose will be used to log in to your new AdSense account.
What do you propose?
Regional error hardly sounds true, because I had an id (which is not existent anymore) registered in no time, a week then.
Ultimately, HubPages has no control over Google AdSense and the issues you might be experiencing with signing up. I recommend you check out the official AdSense Help Forum and hopefully your issue can be resolved there.
There is a known issue with AdSense at this time.
You can find a related thread here.
I have a post on the adsense help forum here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/ … FvDpsOj_4J
and here is a screen shot of what i see as far as the error: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nwto41vge4uqa … t.png?dl=0
Here is another screenshot showing a 500 Internal Server Error : http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F% … SiOQ6-9XpA
Very frustrating. Hopefully someone can figure it out.
I have a thread ongoing on Google support forum as well. https://productforums.google.com/forum/ … OCznhBAcyk
I've been having the same issue the past few days. I've never had an AdSense account and at this rate, it my stay that way. Sigh....

Hi Guys, So I read that you can link your Google Adsense to Hubpages- under the External Affiliate Settings in My Account. However, I am unable to find any tab that says External Affiliate Settings? I have been searching for over a month now and it still hasn't appeared for me. I have 20 featured...

My Google AdSense is in violation due to the fact that I canceled my adsense account by mistake. I got confused when trying to restore the account and somehow in the process made another account. I'm very disappointed with Google for not having a live person to speak with in these types...

I'd like to consider myself an asset to the hubpages community. Although I began relatively recently, I have over a dozen published hubs, and I even won the rising star award for one of them. I have applied to Google Adsense multiple times, and I have always been rejected. I would...

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...
