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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

Yesterday, when I went to check my adsense account, the google site kept telling me to sign up for a new account--didn't recognize that I already had one. There is no place to sign in either. And google adsense help wasn't helpful either. Same thing happened whether I tried to access...

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up. I could not find anything like this in the help section, is there something else I need to...
