Can anyone help?
I've written fifteen articles and set up a Google Ad sense account, but the earnings/affiliate configurations still remain Not Set despite affiliating the link and being redirected back from Google Ad sense to finish the process?
What am i doing wrong? What else do i need to do?
Have you entered your Adsense affiliate code into the appropriate place?
3rd one down. Should show a code beginning with CA-pub-.... If not, click Configure.
You add the number to your profile, then it s automatically added to your hubs from there
I don't understand, what number? You mean, code?
I don't understand what you mean by 'directed back from Google Adsense'. You don't need to be on GA site. You have to do it on HubPages. Put the Adsense code into the appropriate 'Configure' box, and that should be it.
If the box already shows a code, then it's done.
ID or code?
You need to accept an affiliation in GA for HP to work. Generally they don't accepted hosted sites, so there is this hiccup for many. My issue is prob GA doesn't recognize me as a publisher yet.
I think the confusion is that you said you had set up an Adsense account, so people thought you already had your publisher ID
Well, 1) I didn't think an Adsense account was dependent on you having your website already posting ads and 2) I didn't realise they rejected Hubpages because it's a hosted site unless you were already publishing ads and could make an affiliation. It's a little confusing ans skewed towards Google's control.
You said this: I've written fifteen articles and set up a Google Ad sense account, but the earnings/affiliate configurations still remain Not Set despite affiliating the link and being redirected back from Google Ad sense to finish the process
So it seemed like you already have an Adsense account and only had problems setting it up here. You need to have a few articles live before you can apply.
As theraggededge says, all you need is your publisher ID, copy it and paste it into HP.
Login to Adsense > Click Settings > Account > Account Information.
You now have your publisher ID pub - XXXX...
Copy that and paste it into the settings here on HubPages.
The problem is, we can't see what you are seeing. What is the actual text of the response from GA?
The best thing to do is contact email@example.com and ask them to help you out.
Thanks everyone on here btw, it has to be me!
Will update once it's sorted.
Hey wow it's active!
Went to get my pub code, which I could not access before, then paste and.... it's already there.
Perhaps an internal issue then.

A few days ago I went through all the steps to sign up for Google Ad Sense. I just checked and found out my status moved from "Pending" to "Association Disabled by You or by Google for TOS Violation." What in the world does that mean?!? I have no idea how I would...

When you send out the request for an account should you get an email back right away or does it take a while? Will the not respond to you at all if you've only published one hub? Does anyone know of a way to contact Google? Or a way to cancel your google account? I signed up, I...

So I signed up for Google Ad Sense after publishing my tenth hub around April 15th. The notification says that the reviewing process will take up to three days. And it's been five weeks. Does it tend to take this long to get approved or declined by Google Ad Sense?

What is the right time to apply for a Google Ad Sense account?I don't have too many articles and no followers; so I am not sure if my application will be approved by Google. Do they allow reapplications?

Once approved for Google Ad sense, do I need to to put the ads in myself into my hubs, or will Google do that? Thanks

I need someone smarter than I to help me with Ad Sense. I went through the entire sign up thing, they gave me a code which I copied and then put into my website. BUT what then. I left me with a little box on my home page. I don't know what it is for, or what I am doing. Help, Lizzee
