I put "none" on the ads for a hub. Is that going to make for a lower hubscore ranking because Google hates me for not participating in the revenue game?
Ty. Then I will leave it. Hubs look so nice and clean without that stuff.
I go back and forth on that. It actually does seem to affect hubscore, but I am aware that it is not supposed to.
I agree Hubs look much 'cleaner' without ads, particularly for poetry.
Ok, this hub is down into the 30's now. I'm not sure I'm convinced that Google doesn't show some hate to people who don't "play ball."
I mean, if that is the reason, I just need to know. I'll turn the ads back on. I don't want to, but I will if it's going to make my hub sink like an anchor. I was just kind of hoping that the other 50 hubs that generate plenty of hits would be enough to allow for ONE hub to not be smeared with commercial excrement.
Maybe it's just a glitch, but sure having a hard time thinking so given this is the only hub I've ever had do that, ever (and the only one I've ever turned off ads). Be a heck of a coincidence.
How much has your traffic dropped?
All things being equal, Google index and rank pages according to uniqueness and usefulness. Google the Search Engine doesn't care whether a page has Adsense ads on it or not. Wikipedia has no ads and dominates a lot of keyword searches.
Google has no say in the HubScore. That's all to do with HubPages. Which hub is it? It's strange that it's down in the 30's but it won't be because of Google SERPS or Google Adsense.
I had two plummet yesterday, one to 36, for no apparent reason. Thinking it's some kind of temporary glitch, rather than the ads deal.
It's definitely broken/glitched or something. It's still showing only 22 page views, which it's been showing since yesterday morning, despite 48 or something comments.

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...
