ad.text issue?

    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 smile 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.

    I think it's fixed on most if not all sites.

      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?

                  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.

        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.

          Where do you type this info in?  I tried doing it on the Google search and nothing happened.  I see that there are no impressions for Owlcation, and I also do not see about 7 of my 15 sites listed at all.  What now?
