I am having all sorts of ads popping up only when I am in the HP window. Not sure if it's because of something on my end or HP's.
Yikes- is that a pop up ad? We definitely don't allow those. Thanks so much for the screenshot! I'll ping Marina Lazarevic (who manages our ad networks) right away so she can get to the bottom of the issue.
Yes it is. I have had two types pop up today. The one shown and a bar one across the top of the screen while viewing a hub. Thanks!
Hey peeples! The bar at the top is probably not a pop up ad. Did it load in a new window after the rest of the page loaded?
Q&A pages have one ad at the top and one at the bottom (while signed out only.) The ad from your screenshot is definitely not something we're running. However, without seeing the ad call code (which you can only grab at the time the ad loads) I won't be able to tell where it's coming from. If you haven't been seeing it frequently, I would let it be. If you have, please email email@example.com with the information requested here and we will try to track it down. Thanks!
I had only seen them today, and it was really just the dating pop up ad that popped up on the bottom right side that bothered me. Guess I will let it be because that was I only had those few this morning and nothing else. Thanks.
Peoples, I noticed intext links on my hubs after downloading (accidentally) a tool bar. My computer had been hacked. I don't know if it's possible that pop up adds should show instead, but is there a possibility that you've inadvertently downloaded a tool bar, or some other random thing that you don't necessarily want?
I uninstalled and emptied my cache, it got rid of it- just in case this has happened to you.
A great suggestion! It's possible that you're seeing extra ads because of a toolbar or browser extension.
Though, if you haven't seen them frequently, the ads you saw this morning may have been accidentally shown on HubPages before they were detected and removed from rotation.

I noticed at about 9am today that each time I look at any Hub, I get an ad filling my screen at first. Is this a new feature of HP? Thanks. I'm not clicking ads, honest!

People at one end say that good content is a must for a Hub or for any web article where Google adsense is the revenue source. I believe if the content is really good, the visitor will read through and reach the end of...

This probably isn't a bug, but it's annoying and I wish Hubpages wouldn't do it. There is an ad which plays sound appearing on some of my hubs. I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a...

I was browsing my hubs tonight and ran across several "auto-play" video ads that are being displayed at the bottom of the page. This totally is not cool as I have videos on many of my hubs and these...
