    I’m on day 4 of the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge. But I’ve hit a major snag with my AdSense account. I signed up for it some time ago, but haven’t rechecked it until last night.  I have an affiliate code for my Hubpages account, but Google says that application isn’t complete, so I’m trying to correct the problem. So now I’m wondering if I should keep writing Hubs or wait until everything is straightened out with Google AdSense? Google has all sorts of Help information, but it would be so much easier if I could simply call a Google rep and get my account straightened out.

      Definitely keep writing.  I would think that you probably didn't finish the tax form information thingy or something like that.  So check your Account under Google Adsense "My Account" and I think it should tell you if something is missing. big_smile

        Thanks, Sandra. I'm waiting to hear back from Google. I guess though that I should hold off posting more Hubs until everything is worked out with Google. Since they have my affiliate code, I would guess that any little earnings I have should be recorded though I can't access my account. I'll keep writing but will wait a few days to post more Hubs.

          You should post them ASAP, you want them popular and you don't want someone else writing the same stuff and beating you to the top spot of google, If I was you id post asap. IMO

            You're right, getpaidtopost. I'm working on two articles right now, and I'm going to get them posted tonight.

    Keep going and save them and you can post them later. 

    Thus speaks the Queen of Unpublished Hubs.  (I NEVER throw anything away and keep them all saved!)

    I do the same thing Julie.  I get an idea and start a new hub just so I can remember the topic when I have time to research and write

    Did you get a pin number in the mail and input it into your Adsense account?

      I think what I did was open the HubPages account last year and then didn't do much with it until the last few days. So it's hard to tell if I actually finished the application. I did receive the affiliate code and added itto to my HubPages account back when I first started. So I assumed everything was okay. But when I clicked on my AdSense account, I couldn't get any information. So I'm waiting to hear back from Google, which may take a few days.

    Wow, I can't believe it. After a couple of dozen clicks, and reading copious detail instructions, I was finally about to access my AdSense account. And low and behold I discovered I've made $9.26 for the months of April-June. That income is based articles that I posted several months ago.

    I've just started submitting hubs again this week. Now I just need to have my PIN# resent and I'm good to go. Nine bucks is not a lot of money, but it makes HubPages promising since I made money with say the first five hubs I posted several months ago. Almost a year ago in fact. That's also when I didn't know know a thing about writing with keywords in mind.

      Not sure how well informed you are of google adsence so I thought I would give you some friendly advise, Make sure that you don't click your own ads to often. Google will allow a few clicks here and there but not to many otherwise they ban you, You do not get paid for your own clicks, google filter your clicks.

      If you already know this just discard this comment. smile
