Does one have the flexibility to opt out of the unrelated ads ? It appears most are not related to subject of the hub in question. Just wondered if I can opt out of any of these ads?
Unless you have contextual advertising turned off you are being shown ads based on your own cookies and previous internet behavior, and not related to the site you are on. The same it true for pretty much everyone else visiting your hub. But in answer to your question you can opt into showing ads, or not, you can't control what ads are served.
As psycheskinner says, internet advertising has changed - it isn't based on what the page is about any more. Instead, it's based on the reader's search history.

Why are ads now appearing in "Related Hubs" under our hubs? It does not look right for ads to be placed there.
