Does anyone else find it ironic that the very butt hubs and the hubs about shaving genitalia Google promotes on the bottom of almost every hub are not allowed to have ads on them to avoid upsetting Google?
the butt hubs do have Adsense ads.
have you seen the hub about urine with an image of urine samples? i have seen it at the bottom of a few articles now (non-urine-related). now i almost welcome the butts. at this rate, HP should just replace the ad carousel with an animated gif of an elephant pooping.
Seriously? You can't talk about sexual orientation, use the lgbt acronym, or show a statue's nipple and have the ads on but there are ads on the hub illustrating how to shave one's butt and its partner on how to shave men's genitals? We seriously have to blur out the boobies on classical paintings to have ads on our hubs yet hubs with drawings of butts, penises, and scrotums can have ads on them?
My ISP blocks the ads on HubPages so I have no idea if you're just messing with me or not and today's not a library day for me.
I don't dislike the hubs about shaving butts and balls themselves. They are witty and give good, detailed instructions, but I do dislike the fact that they're on hubs that don't match their topics in even the most general sense. I do find the pus-related hub photo I saw at the bottom of one of my food hubs the last time I went to the library to be disgusting and I think it's idiotic to pair photos of pus infections, bedbugs, cockroaches or anything else that's gross with recipes. Way to compete with Food Network, folks.
I'm not messing with you, what would I get out of it? here's a screenshot.
I don't have a screenshot for the urine hub being served in the ad carousel, but that is probably for the best.
@calculus-geometry - I didn't really believe you were messing with me, but it makes zero logical sense that the butt hub has ads on it when considering the things that get ads taken off hubs. Thanks for the screen shot.
Maybe you get a pass on the rules once your traffic passes a certain point?
You can block some ads in Adsense but after blocking a few your choice become limited as the maximum amount you can block is 50.

In a word: adverts! I was just looking at some older hubs and realised I have lots of Amazon and eBay ads alongside the text or in blocks. I remember doing this now having seen some past high-earner Hubbers having lots...

I have a big concern about the ads coming up on my hubs and profile. They are almost pornographic. I make an effort to keep my writing respectful and suitable for all ages, and many pieces are spiritual in nature. The...
