Could someone tell me how we are supposed to fix this problem? I have no idea which sites are missing this info and no idea how to add it in. Am hoping the team will take care of this, but if not, need some help. I suspect many others here feel the same.
Hi TT2, I had this problem earlier, but then all of a sudden it just resolved itself. So, no worries. I’m sure yours will be fixed in the same fashion.
I spoke too soon, the same ad text warning is back. But earlier, I checked my notifications and it stated the problem had been “resolved”, but now it’s back. And of course it is affecting my highest traffic niche article! Frustrating, but I’m sure they’re working on it.
I have this too - I hope it doesn't risk my being kicked out of the AdSense program seeing as how I make a substantial chunk of income off my own sites with AdSense. I wish they'd address this as it just popped up today for me. I'm aware of the other earnings problem from the other thread, but I'm getting concerned now.
I have this too. On delishably and toughnickel.
There is no danger of people "being kicked off" - it's just a note from Google that our publisher IDs aren't registering earnings due to an error in the ads.txt file - which is something on the Hubpages' development side to fix.
We're getting the error messages, but it's not for us to "fix". It's a Hubpages issue.
Ok cool hope they fix it soon. That was kind of concerning with the giant red warning yikes.
I hope you're right about the HP team fixing this. They told me earlier this evening that they had resolved the issue, but from what you guys are saying, the ad.text thing still needs work. Hopefully they'll get this fixed and will let us know when it is.
Yes, the warnings have disappeared. However, I switched back to straight Adsense last night for about a half hour and saw almost nothing in earnings...far less than what I should have seen. So something is still wrong. Most of my hubs are on AxleAddict, but I don't know how to check that one. Can you tell me how to do this. Something still is not working on my end.
Click on “Performance Reports” and then select “All Sites” - then change the date range to “today”.
I don't see anything marked "all sites" Where is it?
It’s under “Performance Reports” in your Google Adsense account.
I looked there...didn't see anything that looked like that. Exactly where is it located on the page? I found it but it was buried under some other stuff.
Adsense appears to be working BUT I have 15 sites and only 4 of them are showing activity. Now what?
Performance Reports > Advanced Reports > Verified sites
All of my sites were verified some time ago.
This is where you can see the earnings from axeladdict. This is what Glen asked you to see, I just pointed you to the place where you can see what he wanted you to take a look at. I'm not asking you to verify your site, I assumed that you already did that.
I am wondering why only 4 of my 15 sites are showing activity. This was for yesterday's date. Today only two are showing activity. Any thoughts?
Rather than looking at your list of verified sites, go to the place I told you to look at. It’s easier to see all the niche sites under “Performance Reports” > “All Sites”
That’s where you will see the views, impressions, and clicks for each site. If you see one that has some views, but zero impressions, then search for your AdSense Publisher ID in the ads.txt file of that site, as lobobrandon instructed above. If your ID is not in that file, then let HubPages staff know about it.
Just as TT2, I do not see this "All sites" option either
It’s an option under the “Performance Reports” on the left-side column when you open the options menu. It’s the same place where you have the advanced reports that you mentioned, only a little higher up.
Maybe you need to expand “ My Reports” under “Performance Reports”. On mine, it expands automatically. That might be the problem.
Do what Glenn says and if you don't see something go to axeladdict.com/ads.txt and use the ctrl+f (find feature) and search for your Adsense publisher ID. If it's in there everything should be working fine.

I'm pulling 2013 kind of randomly, but I really miss how HubPages used to be. It used to be a really friendly place. We used to have kind of an "in" with the administration in that Maddie and Simone would give us advice. There used to be contests to motivate us to write.I understand that...

Hi all, we are aware that there's an issue with AdSense earnings right now and our engineers are looking into the details. It's not clear if the issue is on HP's end or if this is a problem with Google, but we should know more by Monday. Thank you to everyone who has reported the problem, and we...

Hi folks. I use the AdSense direct implementation, rather than the HP earnings program on HubPages. Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the number of clicks and my earnings have increased very dramatically (5 to 10 times).Having reviewed my account on AdSense and looking at the Google...

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

As you know, HubPages has discontinued the AdSense requirement for the HubPages Earnings Program. As a result, you may receive an email notification from AdSense, "One or more of your sites does not have an ads.txt file. Fix this now to avoid severe impact to your revenue". This does not...
