Weird "related searches"

    Not sure if this is the right place to bring this up, as I *think* they're considered ads but I'm not sure.

    A couple of my hubs have very odd "related searches" which are not at all related to the article. For instance my Death Card hub has weight loss, dog training and pregnancy and my Dictionary Lover's hub has several for weight loss.

    One would think the algorithm that place those would be able to see that one page was about the Tarot and the other about dictionaries.

      You're correct, they are ads.  And not only are they not "related" and not actual "searches" but the revenue from these ads is not shared with authors. 

      We started complaining about it over a year ago and nothing has changed, and most likely nothing will change, unfortunately. 

      Here is the 11-page forum thread on the matter that management finally responded to.  (There are numerous other threads on the topic, but none with as much input from management)
