There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.
There's also a problem with communication. Now thats what I call professional!
I see my ads. Not a problem on my end.
I will say that some of them seem to be in a different place, as on a hub of mine that I just answered a comment on, there wasn't an ad on the very top above the content. It was at the bottom under the comments, where the ad that's usually in the middle goes if there isn't a place for it within the content. That's the only thing weird I've seen, but this is the second remark about not seeing ads.
There is Problem with the Adsense Site Too.
Thanks for the fast response about this matter, paul.
Hope the ads will becoming live asap.
I think we can't be banned because I can't see any violating of Adsense TOS
I think there is no need to panick. Lets give hub staff sufficient time to solve the problem.
WHY ARE'nT THE ADS NOT GETTIN DISPLAYED???
WHATS THE ACTUAL REASON???
Once again I find myself in agreement with Stacie
Since HP own revenue depends on Adsense as much as our revenue, I'm sure they are doing all what could be done. Pressure from our side will just add them more work and more stress - thus effectively delaying a solution, whatever it is
How have people been doing in terms of Adsense earnings this month?
I would expect to have earned at least a few dollars by now but have had only one click worth 5c.
My traffic isn't particularly low, either. Looking on the bright side, loosing a days adsense earnings isn't a problem for me with such low earnings anyway!
And its probably a good point that if loosing HP advertising for a day or so makes a serious dent to your income you should look at a bit more diversification of income streams ! Pity though April was shaping up for a good month :-(
Terryg there are only about 4 employees at HP - would you rather they fixed the problem or wrote problem updates in the forums ?
It appears to be a local problem as adsense ads at other sites with same affiliate code are currently getting displayed
OH ! Thanks! I was just abot to ask..I had not noticed they were gone but noticed that I had made very little yesteday ad nothing at all today.
It took a little longer than expected, but AdSense ads are now back on. We're going to up the author's share from 60% to 70% for the rest of April as compensation for the down time.
Another heads up, we're going to be switching over to the new eBay affiliates program in a couple of hours. Stay tuned for that.
This is the second time it has happened within 40 days. I am concerned. I must have lost around 20 to 30 $ during this downtime. I hope this will not happen again.
Perhaps the bigger earners at HP will have a better say on this?!
I think the extra revenue share we've enabled until the end of the month will more than compensate for the downtime. It should actually mean about a 17% increase in impressions for you (from 60% to 70% is 16.7% more). We're not very happy when we aren't making money either, so we certainly understand your frustration.
Is this *just* affiliates -- or is this a return to those ebay ads?
This is why I love Hubpages. Customer Satisfaction First ))
Thanks, HP staff for hard work & painstaking efforts to normalise adsense display.
Hub Pages is Great! No other goup is like it at all.
Hubpages did a good job of taking care of this matter. Thank you!
That is very generous of Hubpages. Most websites have downtime, but few offer additional compensation. Thanks so much!
I love you guys! *giggles*
Seriously, the added 10% is an unexpected bonus that I'm sure all of us appreciate.
Do you realize that I could get rich from this % increase????LOL
Why doesn't my Adsense and Amazon affiliate codes appear in the source code of my Hub.
lol aren't us newbies a lot of fun, or at least a lot of fun to make fun of?
What does it mean in affiliate settings:
Refused by google? and why? what to do next?
Jyoti it simply mean that google has temporarily refused to accept your application and it will further monitor your site. You have now two options either apply using different gmail account or use other affiliate code if you have one. You may reapply also but you have to improve the content of your hub for reconsideration.
Actually it depends. It could also mean that you refused the association with www.hubpages.com on this page:
You should have received several emails directly from google explaining what is happening. Without knowing what those say, it's impossible for us to say what has happened with your application.
I do not get any mail from google, what to do next?
As Prem singh suggests to improve content, I think all my pages rated good. my hub score is moving around 90 always and hubpages scoring between 60 to 80.
In the begining your score will be less and also the traffic because these both increases gradually with time. However, a new hubber has to apply at the time of sign up. If your hub did not attract any traffic in the begining when google crawled your hub, there are chances google monitored your hub (URL of the hub you provided to google) and found it not worth affiliation. You may better know for how long your affiliate settings showed google affiliation code pending. Even if none of the condition applies to your hub, you may send an email to google to reconsider your application.
Generally speaking a simple strategy for getting accepted by Adsense is to open a blogspot account at Blogger.com, start a blog, make a couple of decent posts on the blog, on a subject that you will probably be posting on here at Hubpages in any case, and submit THAT as your URL.
As long as you have a few sensible posts on the blog, so it looks like you intend to keep it up (which you could do anyway -- as much presence on the web as possible is good for you, as putting Adsense ads on Blogger blogs is extremely easy -- then you'll have TWO places on the Web with Adsense ads on it (check out what "channels" are for monitoring of each, by reading up on this at the Adsense site itself).
If you maintain your blogger blog, you can send people to your Hubpages from that blog -- more traffic for you at Hubpages, therefore, so potentially more revenue off your Hubpages ads.
I would tend to agree with Prem (I think that's her first name?), that you might want to reapply with a new email address (easy to set up at Gmail); also, if you switch off your modem for a few minutes, then you will probably be assigned a new IP by your Internet service provider, which might help too.
Best of luck.
I had ben accepted by google adsense and also been provided by a code. They have shown in the accounts that so many pages visited on so and so date. They are also informing of revenues earned on those days.
Some of my articles are doing well in the googl search engines. I have seen today an article in the 1st page of the google search another in the 2nd and some in 4th or 5th page. I think is pretty well. Not?
The affiliate settings refers to sign-up for adsense and when signing-up it indicates already have an account.
What to do next?
I also haven't got any mail from google adsesne support.The look like they are really busy
I'm surprised that you haven't gotten any emails from google at all. You're going to have to work this out yourself with Google I guess. Here is the place to start:
I am somewhat computer and technically incompetent.
I thought I was doing something wrong when I was unable to post adsense ads.
I'm technically not good with computers, HTMLs and the registration stuffs. I'm lost! I have an Adsense Account and there are some ads in my hubpages. But something or is there anything wrong... I still can't get a single cent! My hubs are rated good, just started 10 days ago and traffic is rising. When should I expect to gain? Thanks...
I just posted a new Hub - no google adsense on them, but there seem to be spaces in my text where they might be. I haven't checked my other hubs to see if they are having similar problems. Hubpages are you looking into this?
A concern with Adsense. I am really excited about participating at HubPages. I just enrolled in the program a few days ago and have encountered a problem with Adsense.
I have loaded all the sponsors with my affiliate IDs, but I have come to learn that Adsense has disabled my account. Has nothing to do with HubPages; appears I had a happy clicker at my blog who got a little finger happy. I have put in an appeals but have not heard anything from Adsense yet, so I am going to assume at this point that I am not getting it back.
Which leads me to my question -- Is there any way I can utilize Bidvertiser instead of Adsense? If someone could advise, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for your help,
