Help Hub Pages Staff! Urgent Adsense Issue

    **EDIT**

    Nevermind, I've just blocked Hub Pages on the Google side until I can sort things out.

    ***

    Hi,

    I need to remove AdSense from my Hubs asap, but I can't remove the existing affiliate ID, and I accidentally pressed "sign up" so I assume that Hub Pages is now going to try to sign me up again for an account I already have which could really mess things up. More so than they already are, which is really saying something.

    Can we please have an "edit" field on the AdSense affiliate box? Not being able to remove our AdSense as we please is a big problem, especially if Google threatens your account.

    If any Hub Pages staff see this before Monday, can you please remove my AdSense ID from my account? I have emailed Maddie as to why, but I doubt that she'll get that email until Monday.

    Don't worry about sign-up click. It's just a link to adsense.

    There is a edit field. Just click on the "BOX" of your existing publishere id. I mean the box where your adsense publisher id is, just click on that box or existing publisher id. And thus you can edit your publisher id.

    If you don't want any ads on your hub. Mark them all as non-commercial. But it's very difficult when there are more than 800 hubs.

    I hope this may help you before monday. Don't worry...have a nice day!

    Can't you modify your AdSense affiliate settings?  I thought we could, from the affiliate settings screen, on our accounts...get in there and modify the Adsense affiliate setting to delete, or whatever.

    I'm just a little surprised this is a problem.  I don't have any special expertise but that's what I'd try if it was an emergency.

    Good luck!

    Just edit the settings and delete your AdSense ID.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, but unless my computer is being quirky again, I can't click on the ad sense field to change or delete the ID the way you can with EBay and Amazon. AdSense seems locked.

    Can any of you edit your adsense settings? In the meantime I am just going to block Hub pages in my google adsense settings.

    To satisfy your curiosity as to why I want to remove my adsense from my account, Google and I have different ideas of what constitutes adult content (though Google won't outright say what their idea is,) and they sent me a warning letter, so better safe than sorry, I'll take my adsense off until the issue is sorted.

    If you use the Allowed Sites settings in your Adsense account just remove hubpages.com from your list of allowed URLs.

    If you don't have it set up, then click on "Only allow certain sites to display ads for my account" and add all your sites but not hubpages.com.

    You can add it later once whatever the problem is is sorted out.

      However, remember that you still can't have any adult content on your Hubs regardless - it's against HubPages TOS too.

        Marisa, I don't have adult content on my hubs. I wrote numerous lingerie hubs though - which I was very careful to make sure had no adult content in them. If you take a look, you will notice that ALL hubs sitewide to do with the word "panties" have their ads missing.

        Google is apparently reclassifying some lingerie as adult and some not. Bras, are, for the moment, not adult, but panties are. It is only a matter of time.

        I know I am not the only hubber to write lingerie hubs, so I may not be the only hubber affected by this.  We'll see, I guess.

          Madness! 

          I understood that even if a Hubber removes their Adsense from their Hubs, HubPages' Adsense ads will continue to display - so even though you may have safeguarded your Adsense account, HubPages' account is still in jeopardy (assuming the panties Hubs are what triggered the warning).

    I checked some of the hubs and they don't look like "adult" contents.
