    I have just set up an account at hubpages and have linked to my Amazon affiliates no problem but when I fill the form in to link to my adsense account and 'send' it simply returns back to that point with no indication that anything has happened and the status is still not active.

    I haven't yet published an article .. would that affect it ?

      That could possibly affect it. Either way I don't think it's smart adding your AdSense account to a site on which you have no content yet. Google will probably consider the site to be 'under construction' and as such it wouldn't comply with the AdSense guidelines.

        ah ok .. I just presumed that as I already had teh account it shouldn't be a problem. I'll try to write a short article this pm and try again ..maybe that will help - thanks

          I linked my Adsense before I had any content so I doubt that is the problem. I'd contact and ask them to check it out for you.

    Thanks .. I notice the status is actually 'not set' .. as opposed to 'not active' ... does that give any clues ?

      did you try linking it by clicking the set button on your affiliates page or by going through Google? I did mine right off the bat too so I doubt the content is the issue like UW said. try using the link through the affiliates page.

          No reply yet so have just emailed them via the site after trying an alternative approach which I found at

 … c-trouble/

          However there is no 'account access' tab in adsense sad

          Have written 3 hubs now but wondering if I should bother with any more as adsense seems by far the biggest earner
