Has My Hub Been Flagged By Google for Adult Content?

    Hi. I'm new to this forum and think it's a great idea.  I always value feedback.  Recently, it seems I've been spending the majority of my time "cleaning up" and improving my existing content, based on advice from great hubbers.

    For some reason my most popular hub on Men's Locker Room Etiquette does not show any ads.  I've tried contacting Google about this, but have not faired well getting a human response.

    Can someone please tell me what's wrong with my hub?  Has it been flagged by a Google bot as adult content or something?  Please help!

    Here's my hub:

    Not having ads show is a good sign that Google doesn't like something.

    Your content includes words that discuss nudity and male body parts, locker rooms and hot tubs, which to the Google spiders probably reads the same to their algorithm as something genuinely more adult.  Remember humans don't evaluate web pages for them, programs do.

      Thanks for the response.   For some reason I get almost 200 views of this page a day and wish I could get it unflagged.  Maybe I should try to manipulate the content some?  Any advice?

    Have you received any notification from Google Adsense? You might email the hubteam and ask them to take a look also at your hub.

    Maybe change a word or two that are sexual to another word to see what happens. And some of the comments are pretty explicit. You might need to delete some of them as Google may find adult content in those comments.

      Thanks for the review.  No, I never received any thing from Google AdSense about the page.

      I'll try changing a few of the sexual type words....good suggestion.

      I forgot about the comments....yeah, some of those were fairly explicit.  I didn't approve the most graphic ones, but I did approve some border line ones.  I'll remove those.  I wasn't sure if having more comments, even if borderline explicit, was better than having less?

      I made some changes and now got a few google ads to appear at the very top, but they are all related to "Scales", like USPS scales!

    I have a hub that google will not place ads on.  HP Admin reviewed the hub and found nothing wrong with it.

    I was told it was a glitch with adsense.

      What's your hub? I would like to see if I can find any correlations.
