    A sense shows pairedlife and turbofuture in my sites section and suggest I verify those sites so I clicked verify all sites. Should I have done this or do I need to unverify them. I'm confused as it says sites you own but another part talks about sites you authorize your code to be on

    All should be fine.

    I just did the same thing while doing some long over due housekeeping and haven't noticed any issues.

    I mentioned this last year in my tutorial hub on “Tracking Hubs With AdSense” - You did the right thing. If you’re using authorization and you didn’t authorize any niche sites where you have hubs, you will not get paid for those hubs.

    Of course you can always opt out of authorization altogether and get paid for any site your code is on, but then you run the chance of losing you AdSense account if thieves copy your code along with your hub and place it on a site that goes against AdSense terms of service. That’s the reason for authorizing all sites.

      Glenn:

      Many of us just got warnings about damage to our earnings if we don't ad ads.text publishers IDs to our accounts and also tells us what we need to ad.

      My accounts have all been verified and I placed pub IDs on all of them, but I think this is something different and need guidance, specific steps, as to how to do what they want me to do to fix this problem...if in fact there is one.

      A lot of people here have the same problem, so if you could start a new post with directions about this onerous warning that appeared on our Adsense account page, we would all really appreciate it.

      I have a feeling that this has to do with the Maven changeover, but whatever it is, it seems to be negatively impacting income.  Hurry, please.  We need your help.

        TT2 - I also see all those individual forum threads several people are creating about the ads.txt file. No one is noticing that others have already started a thread, so I’m not going to start another as you are requesting. There is no point.

        This error is an issue for people who have their own websites. Webmasters may need to correct that file. However, it’s not something you need to deal with as far as your hubs are concerned. You can rest assured that HubPages staff will take care of this if anything needs to be done.

        You say this seems to be negatively affecting your income. Are you guessing? “Seems to be” is not the same as “is” - Do you actually see your AdSense report showing zero impressions?

        If you want to put your mind at ease about that error message in your AdSense account, search for your AdSense Publisher ID in the ads.txt under HubPages.com ( no need to search under each niche site) - if it’s there then you have nothing to worry about. When you search, drop the “ca-” prefix if you have that on your ID. That simply means you have a hosted AdSense account that you applied for direct with HubPages in the past. The ads.txt file has all the IDs starting with “pub-” and that’s okay.

          What about the fact that I am unable to add new URL channels as per the directions in your hub?  I get all of them copied over and added, but I am getting an error message that stops them from being entered.  It says  These Characters Are Not Allowed: [space].  I copied the URLs exactly as they were from the stats page and cannot figure out what is wrong.  I had already deleted the original URL list, so now I've got nothing!

            This is off topic for this thread, but I answered you in my hub where you asked that question. You are adding spaces after the URLs. Don’t do that. Why did you delete all your URLs anyway? Besides, if you followed my instructions in my hub then it works flawlessly. But as we discovered several months ago, you were changing the way I explained it in my instructions.

              I did not add any spaces  I copied them exactly as they came off the stats page without changing a thing

              Probably because I didn't totally understand your instructions?

                Just read through Glenns hub, I think he explained it perfectly. You just confused yourself by associating the recent emails with the process.

        Go to the relevant URL; https://owlcation.com/ads.txt search for your pub ID, if it is there ignore the message. If it is not there, contact the HP team.

        1. Glenn Stok profile image98
          Glenn Stokposted 9 months agoin reply to this

          They are all the same copy of the file. No need to check each ads.txt under individual niche domains. If it’s in one, it’s in all.

          1. lobobrandon profile image90
            lobobrandonposted 9 months agoin reply to this

            Yes, but dengarden has a green tick, but owlcation showed a problem. They are copies, but errors could creep in, so if you got a specific error on some niche sites, like me, it's smart to just look at them all. 2 minutes is all it takes to check 27 niche sites which is not too bad. And most people will have to check just 2 - 3 (based on the error message).

              Glenn Stokposted 9 months agoin reply to this

              What I’m saying is that it’s the same file. It’s a copy on all niche sites. They all have the same data. Even if you are seeing an error only for one niche, the file is the same as the one under HubPages.com

                lobobrandonposted 9 months agoin reply to this

                I agree. This is just to satisfy people. They are seeing an issue with one site and are worried, in that case just look at the ads.txt file of that site and then the reason to worry will be no more.

                So it's Ok then, unless it's one of our own sites?

                And it's correct all the threads about the same issue are making this a lot more confusing than it needs to be.

          Brandon, I bet most people will miss this post because if they are using threaded view then this will not be at the end of the forum, but somewhere in the middle because it’s an answer to TT2.  This is the problem we were discussing last week in another forum about the difference between chronological and threaded view that I was trying to make a point about. Oh well.

            Can't help that now, can we smile you pointed it out last week and also a few years ago we had this discussion. If people need help want help they should read stuff. I doubt the hubbers are lazy like many readers. So it should not be a problem imo.

          When I go to that page all I see is a huge page full of numbers and letters.  How do you find your specific pub number without having to sort through all of them?

          1. Glenn Stok profile image98
            Glenn Stokposted 9 months agoin reply to this

            Search! Ctrl-F for Command-F depending on your computer.

              I've got 18 URLs...most on niche sites.  do I have to search each one?

                Glenn Stokposted 9 months agoin reply to this

                See my detailed answer above. Use chronological view.

                No, you do not have to. But if it helps you feel better then do them all. Search on any one of them and you should be fine.

                  She only has one Publisher ID. She’s going to get confused now. Search the ID, not the URLs.

                    Yes search for your Google Adsense Publisher ID.

    Thanks all.
    Those ones automatically popped up for me to verify but I have hubs on other niche sites that didn't pop up in there so I added them. I just put (for example) toughnickel.com without the www or any other thing before or after, should I have been more specific or should this be good?

    1. lobobrandon profile image90
      lobobrandonposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      just the domain name. toughnickel.com should be good. Don't specify www or http or https

    I'm having adsense problems since I changed this. Now, I'm getting a message saying my ads.txt file doesn't show my adsense publisher id on pairedlife and hubpages.com. It says it could severely impact my revenue if I don't fix it but I don't have authority to go into hubpages and fix it so what do I do?

    TT2 - This is getting a little crazy now. You never answered my question. Do you actually see your AdSense report showing zero impressions?

    1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image97
      TIMETRAVELER2posted 9 months agoin reply to this

      No.  Earnings seem to be there but are hugely smaller than they have been.  I can't even remember how to get to the page that shows the per title earnings so that I can know for sure.

      Adsense sent me a list of about 6 URLs they claim don't have ads.text added, but I can't even figure out how to add them. 

      I have my pub ID but checking it  is complicated for me.  I think I'm getting too old for this stuff (75 in May).  Need some hand holding.  Terms that guys like you take for granted, people like me just don't get.  Still have not been able to get those URLs to connect either.  Pretty frustrating!

      1. HoneyBB profile image95
        HoneyBBposted 9 months agoin reply to this

        Pull up the page with all the Pub Id's listed, press Control and the F key and a search box will come up, put your Pub Id number in there and if your Pub ID is listed it will be highlighted.

        1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image97
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 9 months agoin reply to this

          Thanks.  I did that, and it's there...but I'm still showing about 7 files that say the pub ID is missing.

  8. HoneyBB profile image95
    HoneyBBposted 9 months ago

    The team sent me an email to ease our worries...it says: The warning from AdSense should go away within the next 24 hours. This may have been an issue with AdSense updating their ads.txt records.

  9. eugbug profile image98
    eugbugposted 9 months ago

    Why is Adsense throwing up these errors if the specific publisher IDs they claim are missing are properly included in the ads.txt files? Is it because HubPages has updated the files in the meantime?

  10. HoneyBB profile image95
    HoneyBBposted 9 months ago

    In the email that I received from Matt from hubpage team he says that adsense is probably updating their records and that's why we're all getting these errors but it should be fixed within 24 hours however it has been more than 24 hours since my notice showed up although it may take longer since it happened over the weekend. I just realized I started this thread 6 days ago which means it's definitely taking more than 24 hours to fix this. Somebody needs to work on it right away because it doesn't appear to be fixing itself.
