Pricing information is missing or not applicable

One of Google Play Books "Needs Action" issues is "Pricing information is missing or not applicable",  this is caused by the payment settings, you have to set up "Payment Profile", "Sale Territories", and "Currency Conversion" if you sell your book to the "WORLD".

Some authors or publishers spend hours to tweak the Prices setting when they add new books, and feel very confused and frustrated, this happened to me too. Then I realized that you have to set up your Payment Method first, adding bank account for your payment profile. After that you wait for Google to deposit some cents to verify the bank account.

You have to add sales territories as well, if the territory is WORLD, you have to TURN ON currency conversion, too.

You have also to specify the On-Sale Date, although its help tips (when hover mouse on the question mark ? ) says "Leave this field blank if the book can be made available for sale on Google Play immediately." My experiment tells me that reader won't be able to buy if you don't specify the the sale date, since there is no "Try Sample" button or Buy button with a Price on it.

This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234.

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway.

Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message:

"" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host.

Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
