I've had an AdSense account for around a year now and have made some staggering money, folks-about 7 bucks, I think. The 'I think' part is there because no matter what I do I cannot sign in any longer to the account.
I've gone round and round with the forms Google has available and it says that my account is not active and under review-I should expect an email regarding the matter within the week. Well, it's been around 3 weeks now and nothing.
I have little computer experience-most of it I've gotten here on HP-so if you are kind enough to comment on this, do dumb it down a bit, please.
Since it's impossible to contact Google-at least that's my impression-I thought I'd come to my pals!
Thanks in advance and happy 4th.
On HubPages, go to My Account > Affiliate Settings. What does the "Status" say to the right of the ID you have in there for Google?
Everything sounds as it should be. Are you sure you used the correct email address to sign into AdSense? It sounds like you were able to get into it at one time, or else you wouldn't know that you've made a whopping $7.00.
Lorlie, I don't know either how to contact google. Bumping this thread for you.
Please excuse me just a minute for swerving off-topic... I've seen the expression "bump" twice recently and haven't the foggiest idea what it means when something is bumped. Thanks!
Thanks, Izzy. I just tried again and no go. Well, maybe I should contact the HP team. You think?
Lorlie, I don't think the HP team can help you on this one. It's between you and AdSense. Your account has clearly not been disabled, or you would have received an email to that effect (did you check your junk mail folder?) and I imagine your HP Affiliate page would not show the status as "Active." It sounds like you're just trying to get in with the wrong email account.
The response that you got from AdSense (Account not active - Application currently under review) is for new accounts--not established ones. Did you originally sign up with that Hotmail account or did you use a Google account to open your AdSense account?
Read this post. Whether you signed up for AdSense through Blogger/YouTube or not, it seems to be generating the same error message that you are getting. Hope this helps!
Bump.... Bump is a message board term to move a post to the top of the forum with a pointless reply so everyone sees that first.
Thanks Leo and welcome to Hubpages... ps. love your avatar
Apparently, you do not understand the meaning of pointless?
If a thread is *bumped*, the it was bumped for a reason(point). To think there is no point in the post is not wise, because there would be a point, just like you said- to move the thread back to the top of the threads list, so as to get it noticed.
It is also a helpful hand to other people, so their topic is not lost.
Just a thought.
Bumping is often used by those who wish only to fuel their own fires.
It may indeed be related to being phished.
Did you explain to Google that your account was compromised?
Yeah I would say Irohner is right, maybe you could try the 'forgotten' password option at login??
I got it! I'm in!
You people are the best!
And I sincerely hope there was $10,000 lying in your account!
I'm really glad you got back into your account dashboard. If something similar happens again, try the messageboards/forum at google. I've often had questions answered by other members even if it's not possible to contact Google directly.
I have made $.03 but have not taken the time to read and decide what I need to do to set up my account in a better way that might actually attract some income. I plan to read this hub and see if there are any suggestions there. I would love to add some books to my account.

Because of some technical problems with the Google AdSense API, since Thursday evening you can not associate or create a new Google AdSense account through the HubPages Affiliate Settings Page. If you try, the error you see will say an internal error occurred, which indicates a problem in...

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...

People have been asking this, so I looked at my account. In the week that my application was approved, I have been earning a few cents. I looked under earnings, and it shows that money earned from HubPages is 54 cents. So, I thought, am I getting anything from AdSense? Yes, I am. I went to the...

I already have an active google adsense account. After signing up with hubpage, I wanted to link it to my hub. I received the confirmation email to authorize hubpage to link to my google adsense. However, when I check back with my affiliate settings in hubpage, it is still not set. I've tried to...
