    I signed up for an adsense account just after I began my posted my first hub a few days ago. I get a reply from Google that my account was rejected as "domain ownership was not evident".

    Can someone walk me through the problem here and suggest ways of fixing this issue?

      I suppose that for the application you entered the URL of your profile page, Otherwise, Adsense would not know who you are.

        If memory serves me right, I think I just said and not my profile URL. Are you suggesting I use the URL to my profile page?

          I do believe that may be the source of your problem, yes. Adsense needs to be able to verify your content and see that you are a hubber, which is only possible if you provide them with the URL for your profile page.

    Did you follow the HubPages step-by-step instructions?

      I did follow the instructions, hence the loss in understanding what happened

    I found this in the Learning Center and step by step instructions in the help section

      Well, I did follow what the instructions said, but I think I fail to understand what adsense wants me to do. I've copied the message below, and perhaps someone could explain to me how to create another page with the source code and fix this issue. Is it possible to just paste the link to one of my hubs for the URL?



      - Domain ownership not evident


      Further detail:

      Domain ownership: To complete our review, we need to confirm your
      ownership of the site you've submitted. Please follow the steps below:

      1. Access the source code of
      2. Create a separate page on the site and paste "This post confirms my
      ownership of the site and that this site adheres to Google AdSense program
      policies and Terms and Conditions."
      3. Resubmit the application as described below after replacing in the 'Website URL' with the URL of the page where you have
      pasted the snippet.

    You can't do anything that is code related so just ignore that part.

    By following the instructions provided you should have applied from hubpages. The message you received indicates that maybe you did not do this, otherwise you shouldn't have got that specific message: Domain ownership not evident

    HubPages has a special deal in place with AdSense since we the users here do not own or have access to edit the code.

    In the Learning Center instructions it says:

    If you apply to AdSense through the site, HubPages have an agreement with Google to get new accounts approved. Going through HubPages will absolve you of the requirement that you own your domain.

    Occasionally, new Adsense team staff reviewing applications aren’t aware of the agreement and will deny some applications, but that can usually get cleared up with an email.

    If you believe you did things correctly then it could be the case of a new AdSense staff member not familiar with the special agreement in place for HubPages's users to be able to bypass the domain ownership requirement.

    I would suggest that you email HubPages's staff here: Contact Us
    Since I'm already registered for AdSense here on HubPages I can't walk you through the steps. When I try it just messes up my AdSense associations. I wish I could better help you here, but I already had an AdSense account and went through a different set of steps than you should be using. So I'm not familiar with exactly what needs to be done.

      Well, thanks for trying. After sending you a msg, I sent the Hubpages team an email as well, so waiting to hear from them. I did, in fact, apply through the Hubpages website, but seemed to have hit a brick wall. Will wait to hear from the guys at Hubpages regarding this.

      Appreciate the help smile
