    Hi all,

    Newbie here.

    Created a hub, signed up for an Adsense account and entered my Adsense ID the right place in my account.

    However, I signed up for Adsense under an email that is not my main email address/Google account, and I now want to delete that Adsense acct and sign up under my main email address.

    Question is: how do I remove my existing Adsense ID from the affiliate settings in my account?

    There is no option to edit this info in my affiliate setting page...only a "signup" link, and the Adsense ID is "embedded" into the field (eg, can't delete it from there).

    Thanks for your help!

    You can get your email changed at Adsense. If you search there help section for changing email they have the process there for doing this.

    Hi Spuds,

    Thanks for your speedy reply!

    I was aware of the possibility of changing one's email address with Adsense, but that option appears to be different from actually using a different Google "account", which is what I'm really after.

    I've asked Google to delete the account I have registered in relation to my hub, so that part is taken care of.

    But...still don't know how to eliminate that same Adsense ID from my affiliate setting page. Maybe once Google deletes it, it will magically disappear...?

    If you already have an adsense account:

    1. click on "sign up" from the HubPages my affiliates page
    2. select "yes i already have an adsense account"
    3. fill in the fields and you can associate your existing account

    If you don't have an adsense account (other than the one you're trying to get rid of), I think you may have to create one outside of HubPages, and then follow the steps above.

    However -- I don't believe google allows one person (ie. tax identification number) to have 2 adsense accounts, so you may be begging for trouble following this route.

    Perhaps there is some way to get google to transfer your existing adsense to a different google account.

    Thanks for the tips, Paul.

    This is the only Adsense account I have (first-timer), and I mistakenly thought that I could have more than one email address/Google account "attached" to it.

    Since I've now found out that's not the case, and since Google cannot "transfer" the Adsense account to another Google account, I think I'll just go with the cancellation route, and start over once that's done.

    More of an inconvenience than anything, but that's what happens when you make assumptions ;-)

    What Google does want when you cancel an Adsense account is for you to have removed the Adsense from the your webpages before you request cancellation.

    That's why I'm trying to find out how I can delete the current Adsense account ID from my affiliate settings, but maybe it's not even necessary if I have Adsense turned off now.

    If it's not something that I can do from within HubPages, I'll have to hope that Google can do it from their end.

    Cheers and thanks for your help!

    Once google closes out your account HubPages will be notified, but I went ahead and cleared it out for you.

    Thanks, Paul!

    Google was super-quick and I just received the account cancellation request.

    Now I will happily start over, wiser for the experience.

    Really impressed by how quickly you guys responded to my plea...keep up the great work!
