I have noticed that whenever a hub of mine goes viral (the recent one being the one at this link:
http://aravindb1982.hubpages.com/hub/Go … ahasamadhi), within hours ads start appearing. However, the hub is still not a 'featured one'. This is not good. What about the thousands of impressions the ads get while the hub is still being evaluated?
Either the impressions must count (mine did not for yesterday, I had more than 3000 views but have only 600 impressions) or the ads should not come till the hub is featured. Have I got my logic right? Is this not unfair for me?
I believe you will still get paid based on impressions even if the hub is not featured because at the end of the day 'views are views' no matter what the circumstances under which you get them. Even non-featured hubs can be seen online (think backlinks, Facebook shares etc) whether or not Google have crawled them and got any kind of 'no index' message. Likewise your calculation of impressions could be flawed, as bear in mind you will only get 60% of impressions, and that is not based on any one figure, it is a rolling 24 hour period. You never know which times of day HP have split your percentages, so it could be they got their 40% at a busy time of the day, and your 60% was in the quiet time of the day (it is random and varies). It might not always tie in exactly with Analytics either because of the 'rolling' 24 hour period we have here.
The impressions count. We'd hate for someone to have a Hub go viral right away and NOT be able to earn from it!

Why are ads now appearing in "Related Hubs" under our hubs? It does not look right for ads to be placed there.

I don't often moan but even I am getting a bit fed up of the 'waiting' period. I thought it was 24 hours? I have recently published a hub that, by the time the ads come up, everybody who is going to read it has read it,...

One of my hubs was getting decent traffic and was featured. But I have tried to update it and after that it has become red with "needs revision" and also ads are blocked I don't know why. I have tried to make...

Ok, here it is. Hubpages edited some of my hubs to "make them better" so they can be featured and moved to vertical sites. If I undo their "corrections" I risk having that hub removed...
