Hi, i have a problem, when i'm trying to link my hubpages and Google AdSense accounts i got error message:
"The specified client identification header results in an ambiguous AdSense account"
Can someone help me?
Check out the Google help forums, like:

Obviously your using the wrong publisher ID. Don't grab the "Pub" part just the numbers to the right of the dash. You do have an Adsense account correct?
My problem is a bit different from that of Esuturtingas but also on Adsense. I am a new hubber and is still trying to register with Adsense. My 6 hubs so far are already filled with advertisements from Google ads and yet my Adsense application was not approved because of "unacceptable site content". I checked the link given (https://www.google.com/adsense/policies?hl=en_US) to understand which contents in my hubs are unacceptable but can't pin down exactly what's wrong with the contents of my hubs. Can somebody with a similar experience or a clearer understanding of "unacceptable site content" please help me or at least give me an idea on how to rectify the problem? Thanks.
We have been through this issue numerous times on the forum before. Many hubbers from Asia have reported that this is the only explanation they receive from Google, even though the probable real reason for them not being accepted is Google's policy of requiring 6 months prior web presence by applicants from India, China, and certain other countries. In other words, what you are seeing may be a blanket statement without a precise meaning.
Thanks for the quick reply Website Examiner. Didn't catch that part in the policy statement but 6 months waiting is quite long and is not very encouraging. It doesn't sound fair that Google ads appear in my hubs but I don't accumulate the corresponding credits for 6 months or until they decide that the "unacceptable site content" - whatever that means - isn't there anymore.
Hi Jessie. WE is right - due to the high level of spam from India and Asia they've had to enforce a mandatory waiting period.
All the adverts that currently appear on your hubs are those run by hubpages - they will be earning money from your hubs.
However look the bright side - if you write quality content for six months and then get approved, you'll likely start out earning a few dollars or even more each month, unlike those of us who remember starting out with 25c a month!
It can take 6-9 months for hubs to properly age to the level where they get good traffic so you'll be at just the right point to see some nice earnings if you put in the hard yards between now and then.
Hi WryLilt. Thanks for showing me the sunny side of the situation. I'm not really just after the money but am nevertheless disappointed that I'm not getting what other hubbers do get. I must lay this out clearly to the other Asians I invited to join HubPages so they won't be among the WE who are asking these questions.
Interesting note about the 6-9 months aging period for hubs. Will keep that in mind and try my best to write quality content in the coming months. Cheers.
Just to add a few more bright sparks to the fire:
►After reading a lot of work from Indian and Asian hubbers, I must say you have almost impeccable English compared to the majority, which is a big plus both for Adsense and keeping your work published here in general.
►Based on what you've written, I believe that if you continue you'll do well. Sure you could tweak some things but you'll learn as you go and you've done a great job for a new hubber.
►From what I've been told, "travel" related content can earn some nice amounts through Adsense. So if that is going to be your niche, I'm sure you can expect some nice $$$ once your traffic increases and you've gained Adsense approval.
►In the meantime you can still use Amazon. They pay by commission on the first purchase made after someone clicks through your link (for instance if someone clicks your link for a washing machine and then buys $300 of photography equipment, you'll get commission on all $300).
The only downside to Amazon is that you're more likely to get sales on 'product hubs' (for instance "Best laptops" or "Great toys for kids") than information hubs (for instance "How to clean your car" or "Best places to visit in Sydney.")
Alright, you've got me all perked up WryLilt. I admire your supportive and encouraging approach in responding to hubbers' issues. I did get a lot of help from the other hubbers including you in the forums before I was able to produce my initial hubs.
Thanks for the compliment and the additional feedback and tips. I was actually considering Amazon after Adsense broke the news to me and will set it up in a while.
For the meantime, I will have to take a break from writing hubs to focus on my more technical work which actually pays the bills. Will continue following you though.

Google adsense approval is a major issue that is faced by several people on hubpages. After waiting for 6 months, I got preliminary approval for google adsense (3 days passed). I was very happy to see this that finally...

Hi Hubbers, I checked my account yesterday on August 20, 2016 and to my surprise the Google Adsense has approved my application. It is hardly even two months, when I signed up.
