are they of a nature that google doesn't like? I have one poem that is a little racier than my others and ads were removed from it because it went against what google wants. It may not have anything to do with length but more so with content.
Nope it was not announced officially. It is part of the 'test for a few days' that has lasted 2 weeks. The reason stated: "We are testing less ads on Hubs with very few lifetime (mostly new) views to see if it impacts traffic to new Hubs." http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/113839#post2424053
Yep it applies to Older Hubs - If less than 100 views the 250x250 ad top right gets pulled. Also applies to all new hubs - ad pulled until 100+ views - Not a great incentive to write new hubs is it?? My guess is that this ad generates 50% of revenue to the author from the page if click based. Related Search ads are posted on everything and are unafffected.
Wow. Maybe that's because the first picture I have on that Hub is really long. The poetry Hub I published on June 10 (Divorce Poems) has an ad in that space and the other two poetry Hubs I published very recently show an ad in that space.
The three poetry Hubs that I have which have been published longer than a day have more than 100 views each. (They are ranking pretty well right now on Google.) So, maybe that 100-view criteria is real.
I looked at my hubs and they do indeed follow this pattern. Only those with at least 100 "ever" views have the box ad--assuming the are formatted in they way that normally makes it appear. It does require a medium-large text module near the top.
IMO it's far too long to wait after publishing a new hub with the best earning ad on the page disabled. The Related Search ads remain. I have stopped publishing as a result, until I know if this is permanent.
Yup, PHILLY. I just checked and I have 4 poetry hubs with under a hundred views that only have the skyscrapper to the far right and the ads at the bottom. They are not that short, one is quite long so I guess that's the way it is for now. It appears to be about traffic.
Just to continue the discussion, the new poetry Hub that I published less than 24 hours ago now has the Adsense unit below my intro picture. Yes, it now has 100 views but, truthfully, most of those were my views intermittently over the two days I spent uploading the content of more than 6,000 words and 41 photos BEFORE I published the Hub!
Now, that Hub has: a top banner above the header a long skyscraper ad on the right column an Adsense box unit below my first picture a 'Related Search' Adsense unit with five links links to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and join HubPages in the right sidebar
– all before you finish reading the Table of Contents in my Hub!
For those of you who don't have this much advertising high on your Hubs, why in the world would you want it?
The advertising is how you make money from Google. The ads should be in a highly visible position to grab the readers attention. The bottom of the hubs is considered the least visible position. The ads are nearly invisible there.

I must have missed an announcement, but I have noticed a section down the right side of my hubs (as well as other hubs) and along the bottom called "related ads". I haven't clicked on them as that is a...
