Hi there im new here and I wonder why the Affiliate Settings page is still empty, even though I did the sign up and it said that I already have linked my account. So whats wrong?
Welcome to Hubpages!
You have to enter your publisher's ID that you received from Google Adsense inside your affiliate settings.
Then save it.
Welcome to this great site called Hubpages. if you didn't get your pubID yet it may take a couple of days till Goggles issues it to you and then do as Cagsil said.
I have to enter it at "Affiliate Code" right? I can not wirte anything into the line next to google. Confusing?
You have a button on the left side. Click on it, then you should be able to enter your publisher's ID. Make sure you've confirmed the email that Google Adsense sent to you, so it's an active publisher's ID code.
It's not an affiliate code. It's a publisher's ID code. There is a difference.
You mean the Sign up button right? When I click on it, I choose that I already have an Adsense account, which is true, and then I have to enter the last 5 digits of my phone number and my Zip Code to link the accounts. If I do so it sends an e-mail to my AdSense account, which says Hubpages want access to my account. I click on a link to allow it and it says:
"You have already granted the website www.hubpages.com access to your account"
But my affiliate settings page is completely empty and Google AsSense is still "not set".
And, you've entered in your Adsense Publisher's ID into the space.
It is a CA-PUB-################(the ca-pub is followed by at least 16 digits).
If that number is not in your affiliate section, then the ads that are on your page are not yours. The ads will benefit Hubpages and not you.
Write down or "Copy" your Adsense ID.
STEP 1- GO to "MY Account"
STEP 2- GO to "Affiliate Settings" and click
STEP 3- After clicking Affiliate Settings you are Here->
Now, follow the Red arrow to the EDIT button by Google and click. Mine says modify, but your should still say edit.
In the blank box to the right under Affiliate Code is where you will "paste" or type in your Adsense information.
It is like Cagsil said to use..."It is a CA-PUB-################(the ca-pub is followed by at least 16 digits)."
Michael thank you very much for your detailed instructions but if I go to affiliate settings having in mind that I have to click the EDIT button next to Google AdSense, I only find a SIGN UP button. And the stuff occurs again like I described in my last post.
Actually I am new to hubpages and also having some difficulties regard the adsense issue. I applied for it, filled the form and it said that google will approve my application.
Important points to be noted here are:
1. The status in my affiliate settings is "Pending Google Application Approval"
2. It is like 3-4 days I filled the form, but haven't received any reply yet.
3. The affiliate code "ca-pub-***********" is being shown in the respective section.
4. There is a sign up button available in my affiliate settings.
Moreover, I am confused because it all seems to be like I haven't got the approval yet, but the adsesne is being showing in my hubs
Now what is with that adsense and what will be those earnings that I might have earned with it (if I get the approval later) ?
Please guide. Thank you all and thanks to hubpages for such a supportive forum.
I did the sign up thing again and it worked now! It says active, thank you all for your help.
