      I think you need a staff member to come along and comment.

      I see no ads either. Not only that, most of your hubs are not indexed. Out of the 23 that are according to site:http://oldalbion.hubpages.com/ I can't find any of your hubs in search by putting the titles in quotes, except through Hubpages Topics pages.

      Something is very wrong with your account.

    Two "shots in the dark" spring to mind...

    Have you altered your settings with regards to "Editor's Choice"?

    Is everything showing OK on your Adsense account when you sign in to Google Adsense?

    Hope you get it fixed.

    I didn't check all of your Hubs, but these three are not featured:

    You can make a difference.
    Christmas Eve and the Tottington bomb
    Kitchen Cooking Tips

    Go to your account page and see how many of your Hubs are unfeatured.  Unfeatured Hubs are not shown to search engines and this may be why you don't have ads.  Also, check your AdSense account.

      Hi WF,

      I think you are right. Unfeatured hubs are not supposed to show ads. Mine do, however, even those unfeatured due to quality.

      I am wondering if perhaps the OP made all of his hubs non-commercial, perhaps by accident?

        How do you make a Hub non-commercial?

          In edit mode it is an option in the right column

            Thanks.  Why would someone choose that?

              You used to get a choice from HP. In an email usually. We don't like the subject matter, it may offend the great God Google, if you don't make it non-commercial it will be unpublished.

              Then there were others who wrote for 'exposure' and not for money. Which is fine, really.

              It opens up the options for writing stuff google adsense doesn't like.  Either just as a calling, or to make money from other programs.

                  Fiction that includes the word "boob", any mention of homosexuality whatsover, advice on the best vaporiser to buy for legal medical uses.

                    You kids are only scratching the surface of the big Google no-no stuff.

                    Try the word 'breast' even when used in conjuncture with the word "cancer". It's a crazy world, and in the end you tend to stick with something innocuous but popular like "10 best ways to remove paint from walls".

                    Actually, even that  title suggestion is a big high-brow for Google.

    I personally have never had a problem with content suitable for AdSense.  But some publishers do seem to get away with a lot.  Ever heard of Plenty of Fish?

      I have lost Adsense on two different blogs, one about romance novels and one about feminism.  No email or warning, they just flipped the switch and the ads stopped showing.

        Hope your adsense account did not be suspended by google.

          No, apparently if you have multiple blogs they just "turn off" ads to the offending blog.  My account is still working fine.
