Ads removed??

    I have a dollar sign and it says that ads have been removed because of possible infractions.  There is nothing wrong with my hub, here it is:  http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-Pornography-is-Bad-for-Men

    But, because it has the word Pornography in it, I think it was flagged.  How do I go about getting the ads put back?  Anyone?

    Thanks,

    Brie

      This just happened to me too on my aphrodisiac hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/The_Foods_of_Love_Aphrodisiacs
      which is four months old and in my opinion, quite tame.

      As Relache notes, a HubPages live reviewer will eventually go over the content and will notify the author if something needs to change within the Hub. Still.. I hate Hub flags more than not having ads displayed on the page.

    The auto filter picked up the word. The staff will review the hub and put the ads back on or notify you if you should change something.

    wasn't there a thread about this recently? that ads would not show up on adult content type hubs?

      It's not adult content at all.

        It needs to be moderated via manual review.  What HubPages is telling you is that Google would automatically not put ads on it due to suspicion, but you just have to wait for the human review system to catch up with the new filter that just went in place.

          not Google - Hubpages is automatically blocking teh adsense serve w/o flag or human review.

          Brie's Hub is 16 months old

          I also had a hub around 16 months old and near 50k views get auto-flagged. It has the word "penis" in it.

          You think adsense/human flags wouldnt have occurred in this time if they were actually prohibited content?

    Well, i see adsense ads on it.

    And its not against TOS or 'adult" its just auto-nixed for having the word "pornography" in it.

    Brie you are not alone. One of my hubs too is caught in a similar situation. Thankfully for me I will not lose money over it while waiting on a hubstaff review because no-one ever viewed it anyway!

    I have a hub of Types of Rape and tips for Rape Prevention which is also banned for adsense ads.

    I had three suspended for naughty words

    Sexual Assault-an article about what to do if it happens and how to prevent it.

    and Facts about Rape.

    I was a little upset but remembered the auto filter, I just wonder if this is only going to happen once or what.  We shall see I guess

      If you read the main thread it talks about how a lot of sites were initially flagged, and that all flagged Hubs will be reviewed manually.

      The same check which flagged a lot of Hubs will probably check all new hubs published, however as the Hubpages team catches up with the reviewing process you should see much faster review times (Due to less of a backlog)

    Well, the first one was ok'd and now they have done it again to this hub:  http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Bush-White- … choedinger

    There is a picture on this hub that might be the reason...please take a look and let me know what you all think...do you think that the picture of the guy nude but covered is too much?  I'm hoping that they will reinstate the ads soon like they did with the first one.

    Ugh, what a pain in the a**!

      Well, the filter is based on keywords, but you're right; I don't think Google would be happy about that picture with the black box on it.  If you remove that picture, I'm happy to reinstate the ads.

      For the record, the quickest way to get ads reinstated if you notice any more is to email team(at)hubpages(dot)com.  And these measures have been instated to protect your earnings, not harm them.  We are trying to prevent folks from having their AdSense accounts disabled.

            What could be more fun than checking emails from hubbers? tongue

    I think the black box had certain artistic merit. Isn't that a violation of freedom of speech?

      smile I guess hubpages didn't see it that way.  I think I'm pretty conservative so I was surprised that they flagged this.
