    Hello there

    I have found that when I go into affiliates the https appears red with a stroke over it. When I went into my Google Adsense from there, I get this message on top:

    "Your ads have recently appeared on websites you haven't authorized. To avoid lost revenue, make sure to authorize any sites where you display ads by visiting your account settings."

    And I can see no clicks have been getting registered into my account. The past 4 days it reports the same amount.

    I tried placing my sites in the space it asks to place the allowed URL. But I am not sure if my hubs are getting considered if I just place my main hub address.

    Has this happened to anyone?

    Help! yikes(

      I am not sure if I understood you completely, but do check your ad setting have you by any chance ticked on non commercial hubs your hubs should be set on high for ads. Go on edit mode click on settings( this is on the right where you can add a summary)  and check your ad settings. I hope this helps.

      If you add "" to your allowed sites, that will allow ads on all of your Hubs.  You do not need to add them individually.

      (I hope I understood your question correctly.)

    In addition to Maddie's post-

    Once you add "" to your allowed sites, which I think it establishing a custom URL channel, then you can setup individual URL channels for each hub you create, up to 200 channels.

    By creating URL channels, you can track each Hub individually, so you can track and trace your earnings. smile
