Google Adsense and Authentication URL questions

I added my site to google adsense account but the ads do not seem to be working. I am getting page impressions, but no cents or dollars are coming in from it. Usually, I know it comes from ad clicks. So, now I am attempting to verify my site ownership which means I need an authentication URL. I don't even know how to figure that part out or what my authentication URL is for my site. Those are my questions: How do I make adsense work with Yola and how do I find my authentication URL for my site to verify with adsense?

Hello KaylaD

I'm wondering if you trying to use Google AdSense for Domains? The Yola environment does not support the use of AdSense for Domains; if you'd like to use this feature, you would need to move your domain to be hosted elsewhere.

Although it is not possible to use AdSense for Domains, you can put Google AdSense adverts on your pages. Here is a link to our Knowledge Book on this topic: Adding Google AdSense.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if it does not.

So, if I can put Adsense adverts on my pages even though I can't use Adsense for Domains, does that mean I can get revenue coming from this?

It does answer my question very well, I'm just not fully understanding why it isn't working this way. After all, you guys are affiliated with Google, right? You have the Adsense widget. The site is a domain. What gives?

Thank you very kindly for your reply. :)

Hi Kayla,

You can use Adsense with your site using the Adsense Widget or just the HTML Widget. Adsense for Domains is something else entirely, as far as I know it's used when you have a parked domain that only displays advertising (there's no site).

When you setup your Adsense account, they should provide you with code to add to your site. If they ask you for a URL, it would be the URL of your published site - eg. www.yoursite.com.

I hope that helps!
