Should I be concerned? These are Google ads that Google placed there, and my hub does not contain those words or anything similar.
My new hub is about how advertising shapes content. I stayed as far away from anything to do with clicking as humanly possible. It's mostly about advertising and refusing to advertise and how these decisions affect whether we get indexed. Nothing at all about clicking!
Now, I understand that "pay-per-click" is one of the forbidden topics that I could lose my Google account for, no questions asked and with no right of recourse. But besides turning my ads off, is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening?
no worries - i would imagine the little bot that crawls your content for possible TOS violations doesnt actually crawl adsense script content.
Also feel - the bot knows the difference between your content and their content.
Also considering that Adwords is marketed as "With Google AdWords pay-per-click (PPC) keyword advertising" and PPC is a very common phrase - "pay per click" isnt the red area you are seeing it as.
Thanks, Sunforged! That's a relief. I was beginning to think that no matter what I wrote about I'd end up getting in trouble.
Aya, I noticed you were getting over-anxious about this. Unless you're an expert in sales, marketing or making money online there's not much point in writing about those topics because there's so much competition already. So it's easy to stay away from anything Adsense may object to on that score.
As for everything else, the only other thing you might trip over is the sex thing, if you're going to talk about the sex life of primates - but other than that, I can't imagine you'd be even close to having to think about it.
Why is pay per click forbidden? There are over 1,000 hubs with "Pay Per Click" titles. Sunforged is a great example, he has over 40 hubs with "Pay Per Click" within them. Talking about Pay Per Click isn't forbidden.
responded top your comment and looked into WeeblyPro - does not get my vote
no confusion, the number just seems a bit high.
I imagine your getting alot of results that appear on "my related hubs" and duplicates
Just curious - if 40 is the number it wouldnt bother me
thought you may have used a fancy operator string

Greeting Hubbers!...Just wondering if anyone ever tried pay per click like google adwords, yahoo ad center or other to promote one of their "money" hubs? And are we allowed to use a HubPages landing page...

Sometimes I get really low pay per click, like 4 cents, on hubs where I should be getting at least $1-2. Is that because they are clicks from other countries other than US, UK, Australia and Canada?
