    Well, it doesn’t look like Google Adsense will work with me, nor can HP intercede over the disabling of my AdSense account.  I’m not angry.  Things happen for a reason.  Perhaps HP is not the path I should be on but instead, back to writing novels.  Overall, I’ve enjoyed my time on HP, a few difficulties along the way.  Interesting people on the forum, a few personalities clashes here and there as we all experience, but nothing I ever hold grudges over.  I think we all live and learn, forgive and want to find peace, happiness, success… and I wish that for all of you.  To my old acquaintances, Nell, Billy Buc, RonE, MsDora… farewell, you are all gems, treasures for HP.  To the forum Gurus… TT2, Brandon, theRaggedEdge… and the rest - keep up the great positive help in the forums, you are always an asset to HP!!

    I’ve deleted all my articles save for one I’m leaving behind..  A bit of humor to remember me by… https://hubpages.com/community/7-Hub-Personalities-You-May-Recognize

      Isn't this a bit premature Ziyena? As far as I can tell, ads are still being shown on your remaining article.

      Adsense tends to inflexible and there is little that HP can do, on an individual basis.

      You haven't been banned from Adsense yet. Disabling your account usually means that they are giving you an opportunity to rectify the problem. Unfortunately, this often means that you are required to drill-down to discover what the issue is. They won't spoon feed you.

      Also, are you sure that you haven't received an alert regarding ads for just one article being disabled?

      I received a warning last month saying that ads were being disabled for an article I wrote, saying it contained graphic images. As it turns out, the article was about warts and someone had obviously taken offense to the pictures of verrucas!

      Just be certain that you are correct about this, before throwing in the towel. Good luck!

        Google was very specific in stating that I will never be able to have another AdSense account and that's ok with me.  However, I\ll leave behind another article to test just in case it's as you say.  Thanks for the caution  smile

          But what about your Hubpages Ads? They are not all Adsense.

            You need an active Adsense account for the HP ad program. However, looking at the ads on Ziyena's remaining article, they all look like Adsense ads to me, although could be wrong.

              Just because the article is showing Adsence ads does not mean the author has an account. Even before new people are approved, their hubs show ads. I guess HP gets the money.

                That's what I was thinking … we'll see.  If not, I'll report back

            Yes … that's why I took Marketing Merit's advice.  I'll be monitoring, but I'm thinking Google will catch up after the response that I received from the appeal.  Instead of deleting, I've switched to unpublished. Waiting to see if I still collect pay out per day on the one  … if so, then something is off kilter.  Even so, still going back to writing my historical romance novels  smile  Hugs

      Sometimes the Universe is trying to prod us into doing something new, and you seem to have made up your mind. Let us know when your novel is written and best wishes as you move forward.

      You do have copies of all the articles you wrote, right?

        Thanks Jean … Yes, always had the copies  smile  Good Luck to you

    Oh no... So you see no point in moving your work to another platform such as your own domain and using another advertising network? That's a lot of work just wiped off sad

    Anyway, it was nice meeting you here and I wish you success in whatever you do next. Do you have any published novels already?

    Ziyena, It's always sad to see a Hubber leave. Hugs!  It sounds like you have your writing plans figured out. Consider it a new chapter in your life.

    Leaving with one of your articles remaining means the back door is always unlocked and you can return.  That is a good feeling. big_smile

    Ok, so it does look like my earnings are slacking off.  I find it interesting that HP will still continue to make money off of my articles with their ads.  But, if I want to keep my articles in visible position, then I'm guessing it's a give and take situation - just to hold on to decent traffic for Amazon earnings so I'll leave a few articles behind specific to that.  This is my  second issue with Google, four years ago when I was still a greenhorn I got confused and accidently canceled my own Google AdSense account and turned around and created a new one thinking it would be ok - they would not reinstate for a long time.  Now, I've violated a policy that I'm not completely sure what I've done other than the possible scenario given earlier in this thread.  They are not clear with you at all.  So, let this be another example.  You cannot make a mistake, no matter how unwittingly small or grey the issue.  What a headache this has been.  Good luck to you all.  Back to writing romance!  Blessings

      Since you've taken down a lot, it would slack off, right? When it goes down to 0 that's when you know the HP ad program is not working for you anymore.
