    Can an admin look into my adsense account and connection. I have many articles on niche sites and more than 50 articles. yet bI am back to making what I did over 6 months ago even though my impressions is way higher than ever. This isn't adding up to me. The articles are on 4 different sites here, how is this possible?

      Hi Terri, staff won't see your post in this forum 'Getting help from the HubPages community'. It's best if you email them directly: team@hubpages.com

      Have you checked your actual Adsense account to see what's going on? Some people have had to add and verify the niche sites to our accounts.  https://www.google.com/adsense/

      1. makingamark profile image62
        makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

        Verification only works if you have a non-hosted AdSense Account (ie did not apply for an AdSense account via HubPages)

        If you have a hosted account, then the adsense code will not work on sites outside the original host account domain (i.e. hubpages.com)

        The rules changed in 2012 https://adsense.googleblog.com/2012/11/ … -host.html but only seem to have become apparent recently to people on HubPages.

        The Google AdSense Help is not especially helpful at explaining the difference between Host Only accounts and Non-Host accounts - and how to add more sites to an account (i.e. it's clear for non-host accounts  https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/65063 and
        https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/65062 and https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2781214
        but NOT for Host Only accounts)

    Terri, first double-check that your Adsense ID is correctly showing on your Earnings page. 

    Next, do you have the HP Ads program switched on?   If you do, then you'll earn little or nothing from Adsense. That's the way it works - the HP Ads take over most of the spaces where the Adsense ads were.

    Then go to your Adsense account and check to see if there are any messages showing up - and let us know what they are.

          Actually the simplest check is that this is somebody who joined 2 years ago and IF James applied for his AdSense Account via HubPages then his niche hubs are caught in the problem relating to all "hosted site only" accounts created after 2012 https://adsense.googleblog.com/2012/11/ … -host.html

            MakingaMark, we don't know that for sure.

            The 2012 change meant that people who had a hosted account had to apply for permission to use their code on another site.   It doesn't specifically say they will be refused permission if that site belongs to a host partner.   

            So far, the only people whom we KNOW have a problem are people who got their hosted account very recently.

            1. makingamark profile image62
              makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

              Having done a search, I'm picking up numerous comments from people online dating back to 2012 saying they have been having the problem if they have a hosted account. They get a message saying

              "You currently have a host-only account, so this ad code will show as a blank space outside of host partner sites"

              and that the only way to change this is to apply for a full AdSense account.

              So my take on all of this is that it has been going on for several years - it's just it's not been noticed by people on HubPages until recently (i.e. with the advent of the niche sites).

              I'm also assuming that those most likely to have reviewed their Google AdSense accounts are those with a full account and they, in any case, are not affected.

              I also picked up this reference to a relevant support page https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2534771?hl=en

        Thank you all for trying to help. It seems it wasnt connecting to my hubpages link link for a few days. It looks like yesterday is showing properly now. I went into adsense and double checked everything. It's great to see so many helpful people here.

    Hi Marisa,  I looked at my earnings and I have everything active.  Should I turn off the HubPages Earnings for the top one, “Ad Program”?  Is this the HP Adsense?  I assume I leave the Amazon one on.  So far I have made 14 cents this month through HP.

    1. makingamark profile image62
      makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      James - can you provide answers to two questions
      1) Did you apply for an AdSense Account via HubPages?
      2) You have 23 articles listed against your name on HP (i.e. not 50) - how many articles are on niche sites?

      PS Leave the Amazon one on and don't mess with the Ad Program one either. The issue probably relates to the nature of your account - see http://hubpages.com/community/forum/142 … iche-sites

  5. Pianotek profile image54
    Pianotekposted 10 months ago

    I already had a Adsence account before coming here and used that ID.  I have not been able to log into Adsense for awhile,even thought I sometimes get a payment from them.  So it would be difficult to check my account with them.

    1. makingamark profile image62
      makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      How did you get your AdSense account?

      Did you apply in the normal way and identify a site which was not on HubPages, Blogger or YouTube (these all provided what are called "Host site only" accounts)

      Have you not added your Niche sites to your AdSense account? I'm thinking not if you haven't accessed your AdSense account recently.

      Maybe try finding your login details and take a look at your dashboard?

    Thank you MM. Ill read up on this. It's looking I can't do much but ask hubpages to look into it. Everything is in place and running. I'll just keep writing and see what happens. According to adsense report it's all connecting and running.

    1. makingamark profile image62
      makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      So you can see your HubPages account and any niche hubs on the dashboard of your AdSense account?

      1. Terrielynn1 profile image92
        Terrielynn1posted 10 months agoin reply to this

        Yes the pages show under third party . hubpages and I can go through each site and see the traffic and the source and amounts.

  8. Marisa Wright profile image100
    Marisa Wrightposted 10 months ago

    Terrielynn, in that case it looks like you are NOT affected by the problems being experienced by newer Hubbers, so you don't have to worry.  Can I ask, how long have you had your Adsense account?

    1. makingamark profile image62
      makingamarkposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      VERY Iteresting! You've only been here 9 months and you applied for the AdSense account via HubPages?

      So maybe it's something else related to "host site only" accounts?

      Or maybe you added in your niche sites properly and other people haven't???

    2. Terrielynn1 profile image92
      Terrielynn1posted 10 months agoin reply to this

      Hi Marisa. I just got my account in may. It looks like whatever was wrong has been fixed. I am going to check it again today. Adsense amount is different then hubpages. But has finally gone up. It looks like it might of been because of the delishable articles that were just added more recently. Thank you for helping. You have helped me just by helping others too. I have learned alot from you so again I say thank you.
