Dinged by Google AdSense for supposedly adult content. Please help.

    Hi hubbers,

    I just published a hub Submissive Women vs. Dominant Women which has more to do with the roles of women in society and less to do sexual dominance or submission.

    However, Google is currently unable to see the distinction, and I am not getting AdSense ads.

    Suggestions on how I can change the wording in the hub to make it Google friendly would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much.

      What if you changed the wording to: Meek Women vs. Controlling women or Subservient women vs Commanding women?

      The premise would be the same but perhaps the Google bots wouldn't flag those words as being sexual in nature.

        Hi Lisa, thanks for the great suggestions.

        I did consider controlling and subservient, but those terms seem a bit too negative.

        I finally settled on "women who follow" and "women who lead" which are a bit awkward and probably won't get me good keyword hits on Google but hopefully it will at least get referenced smile

    Yes, HubPages and Google are not very tolerant of Adult content to say the least. That's why I don't write about it. At least not here.

    It's immature, because as you say, there is a difference between writing an article about it and advertising hardcore porn.

    Remove the text part of your work...then delete the whole Hub .. start a new Hub, new title , sub-title n repaste your text? hmm maybe that will help?

      It's unfortunate but this sounds like the best advice. This happened to me once on another hosting site, where the site itself kept flagging my page as overly "Adult," simply due to a lot of the principal tags it contained having essentially, "double meanings." I eventually - in simple frustration - deleted the page and abandoned the idea.

      Do you know what the craziest thing of all about that is? I can't for the life of me remember what the site was about! smile

        I suppose if it does not work out, at least it is a good learning experience smile

        Next time I will try to be a lot more careful about keyword ambiguity. Thanks for sharing your experience with me.

          You might also try coming up with some synonyms for the words "submissive" and "dominant" as well. I don't know if the number of times the keywords are mentioned would make a difference, but knowing Google, it's likely.

            I was just thinking the same thing. It is difficult to do though - so far I have come up with prominent women vs. supportive women.

            I don't think those terms really capture what I am trying to say though. I am going to have to play with it some more.

            Do you know if the AdSense ads. will start appearing right away or will I have to wait days for Google to re-crawl the content?

              I have a feeling the ads are blocked by hubpages and that for them to re-appear even after changes you'll have to sort it out with hubpages by email - this is just my guess.

    Unfortunately the Google robot can only tell what your hub is about from the text it contains.  And the phrases 'submissive women' and 'dominant women' are probably flagged as being mainly used by porn sites.

    Unfair I know, but they can't check every page manually.

    * just another thought do you use these terms as the tags in the pictures used on the hub, because if so that could be the main problem - pictures tagged as sub/dom women,are bound to appear suspect, maybe change that and the main hub text should be OK.

    ** ^ I've just checked and yes you do, so to Google your hub looks like a page full of pics of sub/dom women.  I'd guess that's your problem, great pics though. smile

      Thank you very much Mrvoodoo - for the advice and for the compliment smile I will definitely try this out and see what happens.

    Are you aware that you are selling books about bondage on your page? If that isn't your intention, you might also want to choose *very* specific products for your Amazon capsules. I'm not offended (would be the last one to be *offended* by that lol) but if your intention isn't to show those kinds of ads, you might want to remove them!

      Thanks for pointing that out EM. I just did keywords for the Amazon module and for some reason I didn't think that Amazon would put up adult products. Reconfigured it to something else smile

    I know -- from experience -- that Amazon will put up adult products if you allow it to choose based on website keywords. I have had (and still have the domain for) a site that fits the general idea behind my hub "Why I choose to be a submissive wife." I learned the hard way what Amazon will throw up there.

    By the way, that was the site Adsense approved.

    Yeah, synonyms are good. You could also come up with a key or legend with code words for certain "acts".

  8. ngureco profile image86
    ngurecoposted 7 years ago

    It may not work by itself even if you make the changes because it's already marked as adult content. And another example is this hub which is related to your hub - http://hubpages.com/hub/Five-Sexy-Domin … ion-Games- which does not show adsense ads.

    You want to make it Google friendly but first you should make it hubpages friendly.

    Perhaps you can leave it the way it is and create a part two hub which is Google friendly and link the two together.

    Your hub is very good with beautiful pictures. How do you get such images?

    1. Aya_Hajime profile image60
      Aya_Hajimeposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      That is a very good suggestion! At the moment, Google is not even referencing the hub in their search sad

      I will try looking into synonyms a bit more and if that doesn't work out, I will just have to leave it as it is, and refer to it from a second, more friendly hub.



      Thank you very much ngureco smile

      I generated the pictures using a 3d program called Poser. You can read more about it in my Virtual Photography article.

    If you read the Google TOS in depth you will find that you aren't supposed to link to sites with questionable material either.

      Hi Nelle, Was this just a general statement? Or did you notice a "questionable" link in the article? Tis' was not my intent to link to questionable sites smile

    You must have changed something. I see google ads all over your hub. :-)

    1. Aya_Hajime profile image60
      Aya_Hajimeposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah I changed submissive women to "women who follow" and dominant women to "women who lead". Not sure I like the terms as much, so I may play around with it more.

      Thank you all for your great suggestions.

    Oh no, it was just a general comment. If you link to a site that google decides is not proper, it could get your account into trouble.
