I have found that on a hub about Trade Exhibitions and Exhibition stands, the related questions filed has "what do you do to stop yourself laughing at inappropriate moments" and "how to write a standup comedy routine" similar, inappropriate items are in my other two hubs on a similar subject in Business and jobs, marketing and sales category.
Why is this happening? Help!
As an aside, the Hub about Pop Up Displays was appearing high up google rankings when first published and although I have been promoting it by backlinking, it is now on page 13 and I don't know why!
You could review your tags and make sure they're all directly relevant to your subject. If you've got some that are a bit vague, or could be interpreted in other ways, your Hubs will attract some strange related Hubs and related questions.
However, I wish they'd get rid of the related questions section altogether. The quality of questions is rubbish - it's possible part of the reason is because the questioner has put their question in the wrong category.
Hi Marisa, I have reviewed my tags, the only thing that could be misinterpreted is the Exhibitions, Exhibiting ones (as far as I can see) but why that should throw up a question about jelly beans is quite beyond me!
I do not have your experience so it is probably inappropriate for me to comment but I do think that as the 'suggest links' tab was included in hubs to help everyone make the HubPages experience better, more meaningful and relevant, these random questions appearing on a hub would appear to fly in the face of this.
Thank you, I have just read the posts on that thread. My thoughts are that as the titles of these questions appear as important keywords in our hubpage and are totally unrelated to the main content. This may be seen as spam by google and it may harm our pages' rankings in the search engines. We are all trying to comply with writing good quality hubs and only including relevant keywords but having these totally irrelevant, off-topic keywords on our pages cannot be doing our credibility with the google search engines any good at all. I would be interested to know what the hubpages team think of this point?

Why are ads now appearing in "Related Hubs" under our hubs? It does not look right for ads to be placed there.

It's no doubt been said before, but the "discover more hubs" at the end of a hub can be irritating. My latest hub, about an inner ear test for balance function, is followed by three hubs about water, one for...

The title says it all - just do it , the topics are often unprofessional, the discussions are never on topic and as a basically unmoderated area of the site they should not be appearing on our carefully crafted...

The tags you put in when creating an article... are those HTML META Tags? Google stopped paying attention to those in like 1999, and I don't think any important search engine uses them -at all-Is there any use in...

It would be nice if there was a limit to the number of hubs that an author has written, when it comes to appearing in the "Discover More Hubs" section. So that this doesn't happen:(hub titles edited out.)Or,...

impressions and clicks from some of my hubs particularly those written recently are not showing up or being counted in my adsense account ........
