    I have now had my adsense account cancelled for whatever reason, only they know and it would be nice if adsense them selves would at least tell me why instead of me waiting for a new adsense account, standing by the computor ,waiting, waiting for five days now. Hubpages is at fault also because they have my email address and they have not notified me. Mean while ,adsense keeps putting their ads on my sites without giving any sort of income,
    Do I sound annoyed. YOU BET!
    I tried to make my hubs non commercial with no ads and was told that I could not do this because adsense did not like it and the only way I could keep my sites was to unpublish every hub.
    Unless someone can help me solve this terrible situation I will have no alternative but to cancel my hubs with hub pages

      regards brownlickie

      I've read down this thread and it looks to me like adsense wouldn't let you in to your account, is that right? You had forgotten your password?

      Then I assume you contacted google and they have now cancelled that account, not for TOS violation but simply because your email and password didn't match up? you will have lost any earnings accummulated?

      I would try contacting adsense again, because if there was no TOS violation, there is no reason why you shouldn't get your old account up and running. They would, I think, have asked you for the last 5 numbers or so of your telephone number. Maybe having that info to hand will help identify you to them.

      You would be as well republishing your hubs and setting them to commercial because when google look at your stuff they will know you have quality content for them to put their ads on, even if in the end you have to get a new account.

      maybe you should contact HP or google directly. He you forgotten your password maybe you should retrieve it through your email unless they both use the same password.

    Your beef is with Adsense, not HP.  One can only assume that they believe you have violated their TOS in some way.  When you applied for Adsense you would have given them details that would allow them to contact you.  They wouldn't go through HP to do that.

    I'd hate to see you pull your hubs, but you're mad at the wrong party and it's up to you to figure it out.

      hub pages may not be at fault , I realise that but they should have contacted me when I posed the question before on this forum not so long ago. When I tried to go through adsense ,I kept getting the old run around where it brings you back to the start, even going to google themselves in sydney but know one wants to know me and at this stage I still do not know what they are on about.
      For a few months I had to do other things and when I came back and checked my google earnings, I found they would not let me in. Also I did this account two year ago and I have no idea what email account or password I have used so unless some one contacts me I guess its stalemate. But ,how many hubbers has this happoened to?

        If you want a reply from HubPages Staff, you can't rely on just a post in the forum. If you want a direct reply you need to contact them.

          These days HP staff aren't replying to emails. And a large no. of hubbers here don't have an adsense account, it's a shame HP still puts ads on their hubs and conveniently keep 100% of the income.

            These days? I trust that you have had more than just 37 hours experience with the hubpages staff to have come up with that opinion.

            And there's no shame in HP keeping a 40% share or even 100% of the income from the ads run on their site if the hubber themselves have no Adsense Publisher ID. It would not be convenient for them to be offering a quality service if they couldn't cover their costs.

              Too true darkside.  Any business not taking some sort of margin will fold very quickly hurting its customers and suppliers i.e. us.

              Anyone who ignores the business equation does so at their peril and I'm happy for Hubpages to take their share. 

              I also hope they're making a good profit so they can continue to invest in the business and continue to make the numerous enhancements they roll out for our benefit.

              This is not my main account. I use this account only to participate in forum since I have got some bitter experience when i used my main account to participate.

              There is absolutely nothing wrong if hubpages keep 40% of income. But 100%, that can hardly be called ethical.

                It is if the person does not have AdSense.

                  And they can remove the text to use elsewhere and close the hubs. Otherwise they are just providing a free hosting service, which isn't really in their business plan.

                As they're not withholding money from the author then how can it be unethical?

            Rubbish. I just emailed them with a problem and they got back to me within a few hours. One of my hubs had been unpublished after I accidentally broke the google adsense TOS. Once they explained the issue - I have deleted the offending information and I am re-published.

            You can turn the ads off completely on any hub that is not commercial.  Simply go edit the hub, and then under settings uncheck the commercial box and set the ad level to none.

        You should have contacted AdSense and told them you had another account. I did this, they cancelled the old one and let me create a new one.

    One of the main reasons that adsense will kick you is "abnormal" clicking. If you or someone at your IP is clicking your own ads, you will not last long with adsense.

    Not saying that is what was done, but it is the top kicker.

    I wouldn't be surprised that "These days HP staff aren't replying to emails". It's Christmas Holidays time. Give them a break! No one is going to make your life easy for you but you, if you can. At the very least they made your publishing very easy for you. Take care of the rest and don't blame Hubpages for some hurdles you have. Check what you've made wrong and try to correct it. Annoying things happen. Recently right before Christmas superintendant of our huge office building where I work, suddenly died from heart attack. He was such a charming person, nice, polite, looked like a Hollywood star,not even old yet (about 50 or smth. looked much younger) I liked him so-o-o-o much. Very annoying. sad

    I usually get a response from Hubpages within a few hours. 

    If your Adsense account has been cancelled, then it is YOUR fault, not Hubpages, not Adsense.

    If Adsense cancelled your account they would have sent you an email explaining why.

    If you can't remember your adsense login or your email accounts and login, that is yet again YOUR fault.

    Hubpages cannot help you restore your Google Adsense account.

      When did I say my adsense has been cancelled . Don't make assumptions about something you don't know.

        My adsense is intact, but it's a fact many hubbers don't have adsense. Get to know the fact before pointing someone ELSE's fault.

            Hard to guess in which way the conversation went, since he mentioned the response time. Anyway in that case, please ignore my comment.

          The account cancellation would be refering to the first sentence of this thread I guess I should have made that a bit clearer.

    In this one's case, it's pretty obvious why.....he said if we couldn't help him he was leaving.  We didn't tell him what he wanted to hear....he left.

    Sounds like he went on holiday for 2 years, forgot what his email address was for Adsense, don't they do something if you don't log in for so long?
