    i should know this by now. sorry. and i did not see anything re: this is the forum so i apologize if i missed it. if there already is an answer to this question can someone please post a link? thanks very much.

    Q: when you get your Google Adsense code, you are instructed to put it in your page's HTML. i am assuming this is in the text capsules. i tried this on one hub. i put the Google Adsense code in the first text capsule, at the top, by way of the HTML editor. is this wrong? if this is correct, do i have to put it in every text capsule on every hub?

    off to hang my head in shame now...

      No hun paste it into your affiliates page you will see it there. You only need to paste it once and it covers all hubs

    It's wrong. You go here http://hubpages.com/my/affiliate and associate your account with HP. Google will send you email asking to click on another link to complete the association. Then you will be done, and HP will insert the HTML code into your pages automatically. smile

    You dont need to use any HTML code.....

    All you need it your Adsense Publisher ID, which you can find via your adsense account.

    Copy and paste this ID, and then insert this into the relevant part of the 'Affiliate Settings' screen.

    Hubpages does the HTML for you.

    You never to worry about HTML with HubPages. That is their job! smile

    All you have to do is go to affiliate settings under 'My Account'.

    Click on the button next to Google (it might say 'modify' or 'add') and then you'll have to give your e-mail address.

    Then, it should automatically link the two together...no codes needed.

    Also - you'll have to go into adsense and look under 'My Account' on the google adsense website. Then select 'account access' and allow access for hubpages.com. Otherwise, you're code won't automatically start showing on here.

    Good luck!

    ok you guys, thanks so much! i actually did paste my publisher ID into the Google Affiliate Code box, and my Amazon Associate's ID into the Amazon Affiliate Code box when i was new. i guess after reading forums and Google sites i thought i had to do something different, but HubPages does it when i just paste those things in there?


    i luv u guys.

    i'm here for you too, you know.


    p.s. i misspelled "embarrassingly". that was a typo. thank you for not correcting me smile
