    I'm new to Hubpages and have only written 3 articles to date but one of them has been approved to appear on a sister site of Hubpages. When I signed up for adsense Hubpages instantly became an authorized site in my adsense dashboard. I'm assuming I need to go to my "authorized" list and manually add the new domain on which the article will be moved to, is this how it works?

    I'm asking because I'm not sure if the earnings system is the same on network sites, if my adsense pub number is added to the list on that site etc. I'm looking it up but not finding the info yet.

    To be clear I employ the google adsense "authorized" system so that my code only earns me revenue from sites I authorize to prevent abuse.

      You can only have one Adsense account.  Are you saying you've been using Adsense to write on other sites?  The Adsense account that Hubpages uses pays much better than any that you hold separately, so if you're not writing on other sites, you may want to switch.  If you are, you need to make sure you're using the same Adsense account.  You might want to ask the team about this at just to be sure.

        Yes, you are only allowed one account. Since I already had an adsense account it simply is not an option for me to create a NEW account just for hubpages, and hubpages knows this.

        That is why when I associated my existing adsense account with Hubpages I was prompted to go through the official adsense protocol to allow my code to appear on Hubpages from that pre-existing account. In short I authorized Hubpages to display my code officially, within my adsense dashboard.

        That's not related to my question however, I'm sorry if I didn't word it succinctly enough. What I am asking is, if my articles are moved to network sites, do I need to approve those network domains to use my code as well within my adsense dashboard?

        As mentioned, I have "only allow my authorized sites to generate earnings" option in adsense turned on for safety.

          Yes, you do need to add the niche sites as authorised sites.

        TT2, you are right and you are wrong.

        Yes, you can only have one Adsense account.  But there is no "HubPages Adsense account", it's just one big account, and it all pays using exactly the same mechanism - which is the one I described on the other thread.  Adsense on HubPages doesn't pay any better or worse than anywhere else.

        You may be thinking of our Amazon accounts with HubPages, where we're paid at a higher commission rate.

          Sorry.  You're right. I confused the two.  Lots going on around here today!

      As I recall you do have to add it the nice to your authorized sites in your google analytics,  I think @Glen Stok wrote an article or forum post about it.

    How do you ad the niche sites as authorized sites?
