Is it normal on Adsense for there to be a message of .....

    "no data available" when you ask to see the report of your earnings in the past month?

    My earnings for all time are reported as around $27.00. I started wondering why that figure never seems to change, even though I get good traffic and good hubscores. So today I asked to see the report on my October earnings -- and the data is not available.

    Also, they say my payments are on hold. But if I haven't earned $100.00 yet, there wouldn't be payments, anyway, right?

    They say they are running public service announcements on my hubs because I haven't filled out some form. But... there are sometimes ads on my hubs. They don't look like public service announcements...

    What's going on? Has anyone experienced something like this?

      You need to go onto your account and finish your account info and double check your tracking number, so that it's reporting activity to your adsense account.

    I was running PSAs for awhile on my account as well.  turns out I needed to enter a PIN number from Google into my account.  I guess they had to verify my new address or something like that, there was also a hold on my account until I entered the PIN number.  You can request to ahve a new PIN sent to you.

    If you go under the "My Account" tab in AdSense, there will most likely be a pink box on the screen under either the "Payment Hold" section or the "Payment Details" section.  Click there to see why there is a hold on your account and resolve the issue.  This will more than likely take care of the PSAs as well.

    The reason you sometimes see ads in your hubs and not PSAs is probably because you happen to catch them when it is running HubPages AdSense code (40% of the time).

    After you hit 10 dollars, they will send you an airmail with a pin number. Since you have 27 dollars, they probably sent you a letter but you didn't receive it. You can request that they send the pin again, you'll get your Ads back

    Scott.Life, 1974 and Csjun89, thanks.

    I think I must not have received my PIN. I'll apply for a new one.

    Does this mean I've lost any earnings from the Google Adsense that I might have generated in the past year? Apparently, they sent me the PIN last November...

    You will get your earnings when you have confirmed your address (via the PIN Googel sends you and your telephone number.

    I've got a hold on my account at the moment because google doesn't seem able to accept a mobile telephone number as a contact (in the UK )

    The money you earn sits in your account and cannot be paid until you co nfirm your details and reach $100 or in my case £60 of earnings.

    No, actually it seems they stopped running ads on my account in March of 2009. So, while I will get my earnings for the time before they sent me the PIN, I've lost out on anything I might have earned between March 2009 and November 2009.

      correct, until you enter the PIN number which confirms your physical mailing address with Google, they will run PSAs for your publisher id instead of contextual ads.

    1974, you seem to have a good understanding of the requirements. Do you have any idea why they want to know your physical address? Is it for tax purposes? Because if it were just sending payment, they could wire transfer the money to your bank.

      I don't think it is for taxes, they have your SS# or TaxID# for that, but I think it is more to deter fraud.  I think (I could be wrong here) that Google only allows one AdSense account per physical address.  The only way to verify that is via a physically mailed PIN number.

    Look for the clicks, if there are no clicks in other words you didnt earn...

    hayz clicks translate to earnings otherwise its nada, zero, nil or nothing...

    I hope this help though, traffic is not an assurance that you're getting the elusive clicks...

    Even you have thousands of page views with no clicks its all nothing... smile
