I just made a post today about the Harry Potter wands at Ollivander's shop in the new Harry Potter theme park. That term gets plenty of hits.
Yet I see often the ads that should show for adsense is blank. I assume that means there are no ads that match it? Sometimes there are ads there, and they are for Harry Potter wands.
But most of the time the ad space is blank? Does it take a day or two for adsense to "know" what to put in there, or do you think it just does not have enough ads that match it?
If the Hub is brand-new, you need to give Google some more time to match up ads. It's not just subject matter but geo-targeting that effects what is chosen to display. If you are in an area that has nothing to do with the Hub's subject matter, Google may decide that they don't have a good ad to show you. Also, what you see is not what everyone else sees.
I see, thank you for the information. I admit I was not sure what category to put this under. It could be under toys or collectibles, since it's about wands.
But since it's also about the Ollivander's shop in the Harry Potter park, I put it under theme parks. Maybe that is making it confused, as mine must be the only one under that category about wands!
hmm, that is a little strange. usually there's something in those spaces even if it's non-related.
I'm sure something will show up eventually.
Yes, I have noticed that it can take them a little while to "catch up". I only use Google Adsense, but they have what they call Channels. Try the "Channels for Content" feature and also utilize their "Targetable" marketing. These help you get better ads that match your content. Also make sure you use both word and picture ads. This puts more ads on your hubs. Good luck to you and keep on writing.
Hmmm, I did not know you could customize the ads on hubpages. I assumed hubpages picks what they think is the best ad formats to go on your hub and you have no say in it?
Yeah I checked to make sure. You can only control channels you make for your own sites, not hubpages. All channels do for your hubs is keep track of how well your hubs are doing with ads.
BTW there STILL are no ads showing on that hub, strange. Or only every other time the page shows.
I don't know whether this could be relevant:
"4. RESTRICTIONS AND PROHIBITIONS ON USE
In Your use of the Website and Service You must abide by the following restrictions and prohibitions on use. As a Website user or Author, You may Not: ....Publish Hubs or Hub or Author Content targeted at children under the age of 13."
Oh come on, Harry Potter wands are a big hit with adults. In fact I think most are sold as collectibles by adults. They have a games and toys category in hubpages, surely those hubs are for under 13?
I was merely wondering whether your contents, keywords, tags could lead Google to believe your hub is aimed at children. A shot in the dark, nothing more.
I visited you hub and I saw adsense ads just like any other. I assume the problem has been resolved?
Maybe it's just on my end then. I see a blank box to the top right, where adsense should be, as well as the two other spots adsense should show. Maybe somehow my view shows it differently. Thanks for letting me know.
Website Examiner, no problem, I know your just trying to help.
Fine. I too see ads: Amusement Parks, Holiday Shopping, Kids & Teen Zone, Harry Potter Park Hotels (sponsored links).
Bill, I don't see them either. I don't see one ad on the hub. maybe check with HP.
Hmmm, you live close by where I am. Maybe it's a local thing, our SP or something.
Do you have an ad blocker, or are you using Google chrome?
It sounds like they are being prevented from displaying in your browser rather than on hubpages.
That threaded list was getting long LOL! I'll give it more time. I see ads on all my others and they are all about Harry Potter and the theme parks. I'll give it a few more days.
I occasionally see ads which have no relation to my hubs, but then a lot of the time they are fine, I guess we just need to keep the faith in the Hubpages team

Instead of fiddling around with Google Adsense and Analytics to figure out which Hub is making me money, Can the team add a new feature to show number of ad clicks for each hub?I am techie and I have been fiddling...

How does Google AdSense pay for page impression? I amn't clear about that and so I ask it? Would you please help about that?Thanks

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads...

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...

I know there must be a way to see which adds are getting clicked on but for the life of me I just can not see it. I am sure that it is probably right in front of me but I really need some help with this one.
