I have received the following email from Google AdSense:
"We've noticed that your AdSense account has been inactive for the last five months. If your account doesn't generate any ad impressions in the next 30 days. it will be reset and you will be required to connect your site to AdSense before you can serve ads.
If your account generates impressions in the next 30 days, no changes will be made to your account. To start serving ads, create AdSense ad units in your account and place them on your site."
I would be grateful for any suggestions about what I should do. I have not knowingly changed anything I have been doing in the past 5 months, so this email came as a surprise while I was away recently.
I would be inclined to change your ad program from Hubpages to Adsense for a week or so Liz, just to get rid of this warning. Once you've got some earnings and impressions, you can switch back if you want to.
Thanks for your advice. There are 3 sections on my settings. Under Hub Pages Ad Program and Amazon Program are Active. Under External Affiliate Settings Google AdSense is Active, but under Reported Settings Google Analytics is showing as Not Active. Do I need to go on Configure to make the changes you suggest? Do I switch off the Ad Program alone or the Amazon Program too? Would activating Google Analytics make any difference?
All you need to do is deactivate the Hubpages ad program. Leave Amazon and Google Analytics alone. The latter is a reporting tool. Activating it won't make any difference to your predicament, but you can do so, if you want to track your traffic. Good luck!
Thanks for your advice, Marketing Merit. I have done as you suggested, but the Google AdSense account is still showing no earnings. Do you have any other suggestions, please? I am wondering whether to switch the Hubpages ad program back on or leave it longer.
Silly question, but are you getting many visitors to your articles? Have you been generating earnings when using HP ad program?
Also, can you check if you have added all of the sites (HP and relevant niches) to your Adsense account? Finally, check that the Adsense publisher code you have entered on HP is the right one.
Other than this Liz, I don't know what to advise, other than email HP and ask them for help.
Good luck with this!
Thanks for your advice, Marketing Merit. I was generating some earnings on the HP ad program, but not mega earnings.
I have tried to add wanderwisdom to my Google AdSense account, but it won't accept it either as a site or as a subdomain.
The publisher code matches on AdSense and Hub Pages..
I tried to message Google AdSense and I am now about to message Hub Pages for advice.
This might sound like an extremely silly question, but any ideas for an email address for Hubpages, please? I have searched the site and it seems to me that anyone with a problem gets directed to the Help pages, FAQ and then to ask a question on a forum, as I have done. There appears to be a postal address, but emails are discouraged.
I've just read Marketing Merit's answer below. Her solution is the simplest and best. So I've deleted my long-winded (and not as useful) answer.
This is an odd email to receive if you are active on HP, which I know you are. I highly recommend you contact HP Team by email and see if they can assist you with this.
Yes. Unfortunately, it is part and parcel to writing for the Internet.

Why Don't I make more than pennies with Google Adsense?I've noticed recently that I am scraping in bare minimum earnings with my Hubs, and I was wondering what some other users here on HubPages were doing to compensate for low earnings...

Okay - It seems there was an update to the definition of our earnings. I cannot say when it occurred.Basically we are paid for pageviews. One payment per view of article, regardless of how many ads are delivered to the reader, unless they back out before the first ad is actually viewed. Then we...

Which program are you earning more on? The new Hubpages Ad Program or Google Adsense.

Does the Hubpages Ad Program effect Google Ads earnings?My Google earnings seem to have gone down significantly since adding the Hubpages ad program.

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

I recently got an email that my Google adsense account was deactivated for inactivity, will I not be able to get payouts now?
