    I have tried to find and follow directions for google authentication to allow google to crawl my sites, and have not been able to do so.  My sites have not been verified.  I haven't made a single penny for over a week in spite of increased hubs in the past 2 weeks.  The directions are difficult to follow because they don't seem to apply to hubpages; attaching HTML to verify ownership of site, and because I start to follow links, forget what's next, and can't find the original page where the directions were!  HELP!  I hope you understand the question.

      Things work differently on HubPages than on your own websites. Here, the way to start earning with Adsense is that you need to enter you affiliate ID in the "affiliates" section of your "my account" page. There is no other code for you to insert into your hubs, in fact inserting HTML into hubs is not possible.

    Hi kimho39-I'm not sure this helps, but out of the blue I received a sealed card with a new pin for my AdSense account.  It's obviously for authentication.  Maybe something's going on with the big boys and gals at Google.
    Funny thing is, I joined AdSense almost a year ago and got this card just last week.

    I initially signed up through hubpages, but have since added other sites to the google account.  Maybe it doesn't apply to hubpages.  There was an option to post HTML or 2 other forms of code.  I tried them all.  Like I said, I have been trying to follow directions from the help and info links at hubpages and google.  Usually, I can figure these out, but this one had me spending a lot of time and getting nowhere.  I think I'll assume it doesn't apply.  I did finally earn my first penny in quite awhile today.  Maybe earnings are down cause the weather is nicer and all our readers are outside!  I thought I may have broken something.  Thanks for the tips, and I will get back to those links. I learn a little more every day!

      You need to make sure you are applying with your specific profile URL, not with the domain
