    I am new to HubPages. I set up my adsense account and link it according to the instructions. Everything was fine, approved and I published my first hub.

    However, when I get back in a week later, there was no google ads. According to my hubpages account, it was not setup.

    So it has the question: Do you already have a Google AdSense account? I clicked YES. Instead of enter your phone number / zipcode. I had the whole "Create a new Google AdSense Account
    Please be sure that your presence on HubPages includes substantial, original content before you apply."

    It doesn't allow me to update the email address and I am not supposed to create a new adsense account anyway.

    When I set it up, I followed the instructions here: … s-adsense/

    Everything was fine and done but things suddenly changed a week later. From IT stand point, it seems like a bug.

    Any idea what I should do?

    I checked the forum

    When you say you "set up" your AdSense account, what exactly do you mean? Did you actually get approved by them? It's not just a matter of setting up an account like you did here at HubPages. A few more details would help us figure out what happened.

      I went through all the steps and got my adsense account approved by google. Out of the blue, it appeared that my account is not setup. I tried to re-setup / link, but the form on hubpages doesn't allow me to do that. i.e. I clicked yes that I have an account but instead of asking me to key in the email address, phone number/zip code to verify and link, I was presented with the form to set up a new adsense account, which adsense will deny because we are not allowed to have more than one adsense account anyways.

    I assume that you only have one account on HubPages, so we aren't talking about being logged into the wrong account. You could contact HubPages via email,, asking them to confirm your AdSense account status. According to all the steps you say you have gone through previously, they ought to have a record of your activities.

    As the procedure you followed is confusing, better contact
    the AdSense team.
