      But you probably added axeladdict to your list of websites that you publish on. Many people went ahead and added all 27 niche sites. I have the notification for letterpile.

      I did check out the ads.txt file on dengarden: My publisher ID shows, but it does not show on letterpile. So this time it is not a problem with Adsense, but it's an issue with HP.

        Yes, that's right, I did. Sorry, I didn't mean I was surprised to see it, only that I don't have any articles on any of the sites listed.

          I see.  But the issue of them not being synchronized needed to be pointed out as you did with this thread.

    We made tweaks to ads.txt yesterday because google handles the Adsense host api poorly - currently every Adsense id is required.   We started having some issues last week with EBDA and notified Google. We also made our ads.txt smaller by only including IDs that have articles on a site, so the files are now different for each site.

    The very short of it is we are on it and we hope it’s mostly resolved today.

      Cool, as assumed it was related to that. Thanks for the information.

      And that issue with EBDA might have affected impressions and CPM between May 29 and June 1. I earned less during that period. I don't know how other hubbers fared.

    Paul, Something is weird. Now that our AdSense IDs are only in the ads.txt files where we have hubs, I suddenly got a warning from Google that my ID is missing for DenGarden. But I don’t even have any hubs on that niche site. So I wonder what is triggering Google to think I do?

      Glenn, the trigger for Google thinking a site should have your publisher ID in its ads.txt file is if you have site authorization enabled for that site. For example, I enabled site authorization for all the HP sites, both those I have articles on and those I don't. That way, if I have an article published on a particular niche site for the first time, the site will already already be enabled and I won't miss any income. As a result, I get the "Publisher ID missing" message regarding just the HP sites for which I don't currently have any articles.

        Ron, Thanks for that explanation, but I already do the same thing. I mean, I also use site authorization just to be sure no one causes me to lose my account by copying my ID to a malicious site. The only thing I do different from you is that I only add new niche sites when I have something moved to a site for the first time. I'm okay with doing it that way since I use reminders for myself.

        So, since I don’t have DenGarden in my authorized list, it makes no sense that google is alerting me to the missing ID. That the weird part of all this. Wouldn’t you agree?

          Glenn, the only thing I can think of is that maybe you accidentally authorized DenGarden without realizing it (with Google's far less than optimum UI, that would be easy to do). Have you checked your authorized list?

            That the the first thing I checked. It’s not in my authorization list.
