I read all the topics and threads and sorry if I missed the answer to this somewhere - but Hubpages asks me "do you have an AdSense account" and I DO NOT... AdSense denied me, since I do not own www.hubpages.com. I realise that there is where the problem lies, but not how to fix it. They asked me do I own the site (and I don't think there is anything that I can say I 'own'). They said I could fix it by posting a statement somewhere that I adhere to Google's terms and conditions... Where/how exactly am I supposed to post their little ditty and thus prove I own the site? I'm a novice at this, and a bit confused, sorry. Please help. Thank you in advance. Gary
I note that you are rather new to Hp. Give your hubs a few days to "settle" in and try again. You can only apply for your adsense account once you "own" some hubs to HP. I assume you have applied a while ago since Google takes up to 6 weeks for adsense approval, however, i dont think you had any hubs by then. Try again in a few days.
Thank you, Ronaldos, for your reply. I did wait to apply to AdSense, as suggested, until I had some things for them to look at. It was the URL problem, not the lack of content. I'm not sure how to fix the URL that AdSense has for me, now that I have given them the wrong one, I don't think the instructions they have given me to fix the problem address the real issue of the wrong url.
Im a little confused at your question, but heres my guess, you were denied by adsense because you put www.hubpages.com as your URL , try again and put
as your url
You should probably be accepted, you are correct you cannot place the proof of ownership code anywhere, so just retry with the correct url.
When you are, scroll down to the bottom of your new adsense console page and you will find a code ( ca-pub-6736547612764 )
something like that, insert that into the appropriate place in the "affilaite settings" tab in your hubpages account and your all set to earn, good luck!
Yes, you are correct - that is exactly what i did do. Here is the response:
We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.
- Domain ownership not evident
Domain ownership: To complete our review, we need to confirm your
ownership of the site you've submitted. Please follow the steps below:
1. Access the source code of www.hubpages.com.
2. Create a separate page on the site and paste "This post confirms my
ownership of the site and that this site adheres to Google AdSense program
policies and Terms and Conditions."
3. Resubmit the application as described below after replacing
www.hubpages.com in the 'Website URL' with the URL of the page where you
have pasted the snippet.
I now know (thankyou Sunforged) what I did wrong. But I do not know how to fix it.
hey sunforged, thanks for your help! AdSense up and running! Gary
He was denied so i doubt he has a adsense account. Considering the fact that Google takes a while to approve an adsense account and his hub ratio and dates, i doubt Google had anything to look at when he applied. A blank page i guess. Let his current hubs just settle, maybe add another one or twp and re-apply. Like sonforged said, do add the correct url though!
Gary, do you have a blog on blogger? If not, start one up & then use that as your door into google adsense. I couldn't get adsense from just writing on hubpages, but once I started a blog on blogger, I was able to get it & was approved promptly. HTH. Another helpful hint, get a gmail email, its google, as is blogger.
Hi Jane, Thanks for your reply! Yes, I have a blog (don't use it though I should) and I had an idea that for my email I might have a better response if I used my gmail account GMTA
Sunforged got me on the right track. I was able to simply resubmit my application with the proper URL. You are right though, couldn't hurt to start Blogging... I got that thing so long ago - when they invented the word! I hope I can remember my log-in! Gary
UPDATE: Google AdSense up and running! : ) Thanks!
This is interesting - just goes to show that if you're in the right country, having only a few Hubs is no barrier to joining Adsense.
