I just made my first hub and don't want ads for "moving house quotes" and junk!!! I just applied for a google adsense account today so In two days I will be able to choose my own relevant ads. In the meantime I do want to put a couple of books from amazon up and have a account id ready for amazon but definitely want to remove google till then.
Thanks for any help
I'm afraid I won't be much help here as I am not an "ad whore". My boss has tried to explain all that ad stuff to me but no one gets rich from it here--trust me.
I get paid real money for my actual writing elsewhere. I just do this for fun.
There are plenty of forums here filled with complaints about not making enough money and trouble getting accounts and so forth.
So expect the worst and hope for the best here. That's the only way to do it.
For two days? I wouldn't worry about it then. Just leave the ads for now and you can rearrange when your own google ads come through. Please bear in mind that you cannot remove the Hubs own ads, so if you don't have your own, you have to live with them to a degree.
Welcome to Hubpages!
Unfortunately, you are unable to choose your own relevant ads via Google Adsense. Ads are automatically generated based upon the content and keywords of your hub. If there are no relevant ads, then Google has the right to display whatever ads they choose. The word you use frequently is "quote", so Google will automatically display ads for that term.
You can remove ads from your hubs if they are non-commercial. If you put books up from Amazon, or any other affiliate program, your hub will be considered commercial and will have to display a "high" volume of Adsense ads. This is how HubPages earns money to keep this great site running.
To remove ads, or change the level, go into "My Account", edit the hub and select the 'Ads' volume that you'd like.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for all your help I really appreciate it. This is a great community

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...

This probably isn't a bug, but it's annoying and I wish Hubpages wouldn't do it. There is an ad which plays sound appearing on some of my hubs. I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google...
