I'm so confused right now. So I finally got my AdSense set up correctly (yet it's still wrong), and I am seeing numbers recorded in my reports. But why is the referring website only Hubpages.com?
I have 18 articles and all but 3 are published on niche sites. I thought, surely views from these sites, ToughNickel etc. count towards my Adsense earnings. December I'm entering my first three-month with Adsense, and I'm making barely a cent.
If you look at my dashboard it would look as if Adsense is only recording views from one article published on Hubpages.. Can somebody please explain to me how to get niche sites views to count towards my Adsense earnings?
Try loading the niche URLs into adsense.

You need to add each of the sites your articles are on into Adsense. I would just take the time to add all of them so you don't have to remember later if one is added to a site you've never had one on before (unless think there's no way you'd ever write on a topic for a particular niche site). Don't forget to add the new ones. Sorry you're having so much trouble with Adsense. Hopefully, once you have it set up properly you won't have to do anything else in the future. Good luck.
This thread has prompted a question.
If, we are are in the HP earnings program, (with our adsense account), do I need to do anything when HP moves my article to a niche site?
I hope not, because I haven't, and also because it would be a dumb move on HP's part. If they move the url then they should accommodate the move with all of the earnings programs. Not make us manually readjust.
Did I misunderstand the topic?
You're fine. You don't have to do anything at all. Matter of fact, if you go look at your Adsense account, you should see earnings coming in from your articles on niche sites.
No, I never had to do anything when my articles went to niches, and it's over 135 of them. The money still comes to Paypal from Hubpages.com. Not to worry.
If you’re using the HubPages Earnings Program then generally you don’t need to worry about it. But there still is one ad with your own AdSense code and you’d be missing out on earnings for that one if you selected to block usage of your AdSense code by anyone else.
If you did elect to do that then you need to confirm the niche sites as Natalie pointed out. You'll need to add all the niche sites being used to your list of allowed domains in your AdSense account under “Sites”. (Not under URL Channels, which is useful only if you want to see detailed stats on each hub).
Only specify the ones your hubs are in. If you specify the others then Google will issue a warning that your AdSense code is not in the ads.txt file for those domains. No harm with that, but it’s just annoying (an confusing) getting those warnings.
Thanks very much for explaining this.. I used Natalie's tactic and included every single site HubPages from the "Sites" section, as Glenn pointed out, and away from the URL element Will previously suggested to load the niche sites. (Sorry, Will, that didn't quite work.) And then I unverified every single site where my writing is not featured. These are sites AdSense would warn of not having the ads.txt set up properly.
Edit: By having the sites' status set as "unverified" they are still listed but they are unchecked. Later if my writings ever appeared on those other sites I will be able to verify them.
After around 24 hours I have two referring sites showing up in my Adsense reports, and made more in one day than I made throughout the entire month of November!
Let me use this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and productive weekend xoxo

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

I implemented Adsense over seven days ago, and it seems that based on my page views so far, there'd be at least one ad click. But every time I check "earnings," for every day listed it says $0.00. Sometimes under the "Yesterday" header it says "Pending," but then next...

I just read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it. Could someone please give step-by-step directions on how to get this accomplished? I don't remember hearing about this when the niche sites started....

Anyone know which are the highest and lowest traffic niche sites? From my own stats I’m seeing ToughNickel and Bellatory do pretty well while Letterpile and Delishably get much less traffic, though it could just be me.

Being new I'm not sure I totally understand the way to generate income here in HP. Am I to understand that one must have an Adsense account to earn income? I've applied for an Adsense account some time ago but have not heard anything from them. Does this mean no matter how good my hubs are and how...

Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact that my daily impressions on Hubpages vs Adsense differ by a factor of about 100....
