Inappropriate Ads

    I wish there was a way to opt out of that strand of ads that appears near the bottom of my hubs.  My hubs are conservative and written mostly for teachers and parents.  Bare bottoms and couples making out are not relevant to my content.  I would like them removed.

      I think there is a way but I don't know how.  Maybe someone who knows how will answer you.

        I hope so too.  I don't want to leave HubPages completely but these ads are not relevant to my content at all.  I don't want to write a post about kids activities or Sunday School lessons and then have to look at someone's thong adorned behind when I get to the end.  I don't want those ads associated with my content which has my name on it.

    I'd wondered about the same thing, @Tina Truelove. I've just not had an oppo to search for the information to see if there's a solution.

      Maybe someone on here will have a simple solution.

    I agree, and, I hope that admin takes the right steps to make this happen for you and me....

      Me too.  I have my Adsense ads filtered.  Sometimes something gets through the filter but I haven't noticed anything particularly over the edge.  Some of those ads at the bottom of the page could be categorized as soft porn.  They are very offensive to me and I'm sure most of my readers as well.

    Go to Earning Programs page
    Go to Google Adsense Reports
    Then to Allow and Block Ads
    Then to Sensitive Categories
    You can block or allow certain ads from there.

      I did that when I first set it up.  I never have issues on my blogs, only HubPages.  I will double check my filters but I'm wondering if these ads are even Adsense ads.  They don't have the appearance of Adsense.  HubPages has their own ad program so I have to wonder if these inappropriate ads are coming from someone other than Adsense.

        Have you written to Hubpages to ask them?
