I had my ads disabled on a hub on the history of corsets. In it, I mentioned the contemporary use of corsets in the burlesque scene. I can understand how this may step on google's toes a bit, but there was really no sexual content.
I have removed a couple of photos that may have been frowned upon, as well as removing any reference to burlesque. I'm wondering how long the ads will take to come back? They literally got disabled an hour ago. I have unpublished then republished the hub after editing, hoping to refresh the publishing status, but to no avail.
I don't know whether I'm allowed to add the URL here, so I'll leave it out to be on the safe side.
If anyone could look over the hub and suggest anything else that may flag up? I'd really appreciate it.
Hey sparkleyfinger, I just had one of our moderators look over your Hub and ads have been turned back on.
In the future it's a good idea to email the staff directly to have ads reinstated on Hubs. Once they've been turned off, they won't be turned back on again unless approved by a moderator.
P.S. Neat Hub, by the way. As a frequent Renaissance Faire attendee, I do loves me some corsets!
Is it your hub on how to make a corset? I don't see a hub about the history of them.
Thanks! I sent a wee email to hubpages, but wasn't sure about whether I'd sent it to the right place or if there was even any point in emailing if the subject was deemed to be inappropriate still. Thanks for such a quick response! To contact the staff, is it the help section I go through? Thanks
If you know which staff member you need to contact, you can shoot him/her and email through his/her HubPages user profile. Otherwise, you can find our contact information on the Team page: http://hubpages.com/about/team
I don't think it's necessary to shoot any of the staff. I do agree about emailing them though.
Well, thank goodness! As a member of the staff, I'm inclined to strongly agree.
But it was YOUR idea!!
Actually, I was more worried that you'd quietly edit your "shoot AND email" typo and ruin my joke.
Here's the FAQ entry on hubs with ads disabled:
At the very end there is a link for contacting us about it:
I believe there is also a contact link in the warning that appears on your hub if you expand it. If you email us that way, your question will be automatically routed to someone that is capable of helping you with that problem, and therefore it's the most expedient way to get your issue resolved.
It really helps us to help you, when you contact us through either contact links in the FAQ, or via the help wizard, as opposed to emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or contacting individual staff directly.
or just email email@example.com to avoid having to go via an internal page.
I had exactly the same problem with my hub - How to Shop for a Corset - . I think It has to do with the word "corset" as it is mostly associated with adult industry. Just send email to hubpages' moderator for review and they will fix it.

My new hub has had advertising automatically disabled. As far as I can tell, it does not violate Adsense policy. Who should I contact? Is it Maddie?
