Did I actually apply to Google Adsense four times or not at all?

    Did I actually apply to Google Adsense four times or not at all?

    How do I know if I applied to Google adsense 4 times or not at all.  The page didn't change at all after clicking apply (just refreshed).  Can you check status, once you apply?  This was twelve hours ago and I'm wondering if I'm out of luck now for over clicking or just impatient.  Thanks for any info!  Also why does every program need adsense to work (except amazon)?   Thanks

    It is confusing, isn't it.  You may have an ad block program that keeps you from seeing the ads. Be sure to turn them off.
    You have to respond to an email from Adsense, and another one from Hubpages allowing them to get info from Adsense. 

    Then you have to wait a few days.

    Check on the configure link to see if there are any error messages. It may simply be a matter of waiting. If you go to there is a link for them to check whether your account is set up.

    I have a feeling you just need to have more patience.

      I've been trying for a while now and haven't gotten a single email from Adsense ever. I think I've reapplied 5 times now.

    This is where I'm confused.  My google adsense setting button still says, "GET STARTED".  Doesn't that mean it never got my appl.? Or am I assuming too much?  Also Google "remembered" I had an email with them but I didn't.  Are they crosschecking my emails?  Should I try (gritting teeth) to sign up with my regular Gmail address instead?  I can't sign into adsense without a password(never set one) to check status.  Any ideas on this?

      I'm having all of the same problems. It seems that many Hubbers are. Sorry. Join the club. I'll let you know if I ever figure it out myself.

      As this was a long time ago, I think I went to Google Adsense directly and signed up with my gmail account.  This was easier.  Then merged hubpages with those acct. numbers.  Hope that will work for you.

    Your account should say "Pending" if you have actually applied. However, that will not happen until the request is registered-12 hours is a bit short a time.
