Hello Hubpages, I have been a bubbler for 7 years. I'm have below 30 hubs however neither ones are spammy at all. I researched and added products thoughtfully to ask generate cross selling ad revenue. You recently terminated my participation with vague explanation. I understand you reserve the right. However you explanation is not understandable why I am not eligible. My hubs had just generating revenue. I had nearly had no revenue and after so much research and tips when I started getting some, you terminated.my hub is on VISA and it is read by world wide audience. At least be sincere and explain what is it I need to do to be part of the program? What is it I am not doing right? What area"ireegularities". Hubpages community I am seeking your support....!!
My top most visited hubs are about US VISA process. Which helps people in other countries who want to go for US VISA interview or want to understand US VISA related subject matter. I also think such people want to explore latest gadgets such as phone. So my ads are related to Phone.
If your Hub is about the US visa process, and you are placing ads on that Hub for phones, then you are breaking HubPages' rules. Ads must be relevant to the subject of the Hub - i.e. if your Hub is about visas then you can only place ads related to visas. Perhaps a book about how to apply?
Also if you are using affiliate codes, they may be on prohibited ad networks?
I am big fan of cross selling. It does not make sense to show someone advertisement about the topic he is reading. I would rather think after reading a person may want to take a break and explore interests.
Hubpages got back to me and told me the reason as "fraudulent" activities. The funny part is I never initiated any activity. I just visited my site after a few weeks. If it was so, I would have done so many years ago. I fact I feel disrespected as I have taken time to build these articles and I have no intentions to run any scam. I am sure there is a glitch on hubpages side that they identify some natural activity as fraudulent activity. I would love to understand what is it about my hubs or activity on my hub that seems fraudulent. I am myself a predictive modeler and have seen too many bad prediction models that flag genuine activity as fraudulent because they made bad assumptions.
Anyways, I have never been making revenues at hubpages, and then when I noticed something is happening in the favor, some flawed policy and algorithm thinks that as fraudulent. Hope hubpages team can investigate thoroughly the reasons and see if it is their own process issue that they are calling activity on my hubs fraudulent. I live in Bay Area and I a happy to come to your HQ and even spend time understanding why and what is fraudulent.. Do they look at. A tyre of information and relate to physics of the activity at all.. Or is it just count based analysis or cross relation. There are patterns in data that can deceive eyes. ... I am going to tweet to Paul who is CEO and request he deep dives into this issue and really see that it is fraudulent.
Completely illogical. How could you know what the reader is interested in other than the topic you are writing about? HubPages is not a fan of cross-selling.
Anyway, it seems the problem lies elsewhere, so good luck with that. Hope you can get it resolved.
Cross-selling is not allowed under HubPages's rules. It's as simple as that.
Thanks hubpages for such a treatment for genuine content and flagging my hub activity as "fraudulent". On top cancelling my ad program participation. This is an extreme rude behavior. If my hubs are not earning, there is no point for me to write. I have decided to unpublish my hubs until you resolve the glitch on your side and develop insightful process and policies.
If you're a Bubbler, then you're getting angry at the wrong site.
Also, being a bubbler for 7 years would be a good trick because Bubblews wasn't around that long.
On what planet? Nobody says "Y'know, this article I'm reading about cheese and crackers is very informative, but doggone it, it really needs some advertisements for luxury yachts."
There you go. That'll show'em.

I was just wondering how successful people are with the Hubpages ad program and if anyone had managed to make payout in one day yet. I have yet to earn over $5 in one day from the ad program. How about everyone else?
