    I am so tired of seeing the ad for saggy skin on HP.  Am I the only one that thinks those ads are disgusting?

      Oh, yes, me too.  They seem to be everywhere!  I just saw an ad on one of my recipe/flash fiction hubs that turned my stomach and is not appropriate to be on that hub due to turning one's stomach ...being it was about yeast in the stomach and showing a big fat belly fat!  Makes one not even want to read the hub!  But I guess they paid for the ad ... I thought in the past the ads would match the topic of the hubs better, but I guess that is out the window with just making money.

      I see them too and it's not because I Google how to combat saggy skin. I feel like HP has a hidden camera and is telling me to tighten up!

    Ads are posted according to key words in the article and sometimes they just choose weird seeiming words for the matches. In this one they may have chosen the word stomach.

      I just can't agree with you, Beaddooler.  This ad just pops up on many Hubs; no matter the subject !  I've seen it on recipes.

    I don't like them, either.  Or, the belly fat ads.

    I strongly suspect the more crass the ad, the higher the CPM. When they come up with a toenail fungus foot standing on a saggy stomach covered in vomit, we can all retire.

        "Revolting" would have been a better word than "crass'.  I guess I should have gotten Grammarly, oh well.

    I keep getting ads about "What Ellen is hiding!" and "You won't believe her transformation!" Still better than the ads about the clogged arteries though.....
