    I have just written my first hub. I have refreshed the page now 4 or 5 times, and checked the source.

    Each time, all of the google ads and also all of the amazon books were using a hubpages identifier, rather than my own.

    Is this normal at the start? I was under the impression that - at least with the amazon stuff - my identifier should be used if I am going to get any credit.

    60% of the impressions will show your AdSense ID and 40% of the impressions will show the HubPages AdSense ID... I think the same goes for your Amazon ID... smile

    The website mentions that Amazon and EBay goes 100% to you. However, it has started showing my Amazon Associates ID now. Guess it just took a little while to start working.

    As for the AdSense, I've noticed that my status was set to pending. The confirm email from Google never arrived, but I just logged into AdSense and enabled the link to here manually.

    It's now actually all working correctly it seems. Think it was just because my account was still so new when I made my first hub.

    From what I understan in the faq Amazon earns you 100% of the sale you make BUT your amazon id is only shown 60% of the time. Can anyone clarify if the 60% is only for adsense or if it is for amazon and ebay as well?

    The reason why you are seeing hubpages ads instead of your own is my best guess would be hubpages knows adsense does not allow you clicking or looking at your own ads example banner impressions. So to play it safe if it knows its you logged in then its going to show their ads and not yours. At least thats how I would set it up if I was hubpages.

    I don't think they have it set up like that. I now have my id's for google and amazon shown frequently, even if it's me looking at the page. Just took a little while to get going.

    I am having an issue with AdSense saying I've had zero impressions, but analytics saying I've had 40ish.

    But from reading around this is common when you have not set a custom channel. I've just set up some URL channels for my hubs, so hopefully it'll start showing there too.
