Sunday evening Greetings!! William and I were wondering if there is a way to change the automatically installed Google ads on our Hubs if we do not think they are appropriate?? I thought that was possible but I can't seem to find it!! Thank you!! Blessings, Earth Angel!!
No, there is no way to change the ads that are shown. Google matches those ads to the subject of your hub, but there matching is primarily keyword based -- they can't understand the subtle nuance of your writing. This can lead to some strange juxtapositions, and sometimes they will place ads that just aren't appropriate. Of course this happens in the real world sometimes too.
If you're hub is not commercial, you can turn the ad level setting to low or none.
I just went through my hubs to update them, where appropriate.
In this hub:

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
