I'm back hubbing after a long lay off. One of the things I wanted to do was a series of Hubs on poker, specifically the home game and dealers choice games. I've done a bunch of them without complaint from HubPages.
Im really not sure where the line is..but I really does seem Xomba is being overly careful.
If you put "poker" into the google adwords tool youll see massive returns on the term
With so many advertisers, adsense must not have much of an issue servings ads for poker
I would look around the adsense forums for detailed info and some staff responses on where the line is between poker and card games and 'gambling"
And from Google:
AdSense publishers aren't permitted to place Google ads on sites with gambling or casino-related content. In other words, if your site accepts money or allows users to place bets in exchange for an opportunity to earn cash or other prizes, then it's unacceptable to place Google ads on your site. Please note that this policy also prohibits the placement of Google ads on sites that link to online gambling sites.
I'd be contacting the HP team for further clarification.
Thanks darkside, I had checked the HP Help section, read the area you quoted, and thought I was ok. Re Google restrictions, again I thought I was ok - no links or reference to online or casino gambling. My Hubs are about dealers choice home games, where no profit, or rake is allowed. Agreed that I need HP interpretation, confirmation that I'm well within guidelines.
There are some great hubs on here about poker. They're instructional and don't *really* promote gambling in the way that Google is referring to. You may want to do a search on HP to get an idea of what poker hubs are already on here.

Hi guys, I've written a great Hub on how to choose an online poker room. I have not included any links or affiliate capsules. It is 100% informative and not promotional at all. It doesn't mention any online poker rooms...

I know nobody would declare his earnings but i think most of us are writing on a number of revenue sharing sites be it wizzley, infobarrel, squidoo etc. However in terms of revenue which has been the best site for you?

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I just switched to HP from adsense and have noticed that there are some ads that I find offensive (for women in Russia for example). I find it interesting that HP will ding me if I put something off-color on my...

Only the best Hubs on HubPages are being moved to niches, so everything on the niche sites is spam free and trash free. There are no pieces written in broken English or written in ways that appear to be spun. Everything...
