Since the past week whenever I open a Hub..the page gets redirected to this annoying banner ad which comes in the top left hand corner of the screen..
At first I thought maybe it was a problem with my mouse since the click button gives a problem by double clicking automatically..
So I changed the mouse, copy pasted the url of the Hub into the browser and kept the mouse pointer totally off the browser..
And well it happened again, before the entire hub could load it got redirected to this ad:
http://dbs.ozonemedia.com/banner/GetBan … ategyId=46
I'm trying to get approved for an adsense account and Google's gonna catch me for invalid clicks..
And I can't read other hubs or check out my own..
It sounds like this was not a HubPages ad after all, but if you ever discover a pop up ad on the site, or any other ad that does not meet our guidelines, please report it here: http://hubpages.com/help-answer/affilia … m-with-ad/
honestly it sounds like you need to adjust your internet tools for your pop-up blocker. it is just from visiting some site that now allows these.
I could be wrong but I would try deleting your cookies first, running a scan then changing your pop-up blocker setting to higher or none unless you approve the site since some sites you do need them.
It's not a popup..Just redirects to the banner page..
Will try deleting the cookies..thanks
If you THINK Google is going to catch you for INVALID CLICKS...they probably already did. Think about it. They are hip to all the tricks and start monitoring as soon as a red line is reached. By the time you think about it, they have probably already judged. Best of luck anyway.
I don't have an adsense account yet, so will it create a problem in getting one?
If you ALREADY have been pegged with INVALID CLICKS...think about it...maybe Google was TESTING YOU because they are PARTNERED with HubPages and it gives them a chance to PRE-SCREEN.
I did'nt click on the ads...it used to get redirected automatically when i opened a hub..
Anyways, deleting the cookies solved the problem...
So i'll just wait for a while and hopefully I'll get through to adsense..
Positivity has always worked in my favor..no use in worrying about something I'm not a 100% sure about...
I'm sure you have done nothing wrong. This happens at times. I have had it happen to me. I also don't click extra ads here or anyplace else.
I had this problem a while back but not on Hubpages. I was looking for cell phone cases, and I was redirected to porn.
I also had these annoying ads pop-up and cover pages. It is malware use free Malwarebytes my problem was gone.

I understand it difficult times but what good will deleting hubs do? I see some of the most prolific hubbers deleting heaps of hubs. Have we lost the hope of a hubpages bounce back?

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

I am the only one getting these looong spammy comments on my Hubs. Of course I am deleting and hitting the spam button. I guess they don't know they have to be approved before anyone can view their posts.

Warning: This is a bit of a rant. Please ignore if you're not in the mood for it.There's been a lot of scrambling and drastic knee-jerk reactions since the Panda update. Some have been well thought out and planned (like...

I have written 20 hubs about yoga, and to increase traffic on each of them I thought it would be a good idea to link from one hub to another.On the bottom of 4 hubs I added the same 4 links to 4 of my other yoga related...

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...
