    WARNING: Advertising has been disabled on this hub based on automatic content filters

    Please check my hub and tell me if there is anything wrong:

      It is because it is about breasts.  Simple and as silly as that.  Ridiculous, but that is this up-tight country.

        Sorry for late reply. Agree with what Pcunix said.

        Sometime, over using particular sensitive words could lead to a lot of unwanted problems smile

    this is really crazy! Why do they hate breats?????? It's an organ like a hand. Thanks so much Pcunix.....

      I agree.  It is insane.  By letting breasts be sexualized, women are prevented from breastfeeding, can't be comfortable at the beach - the whole nudity taboo thing is completely ridiculous anyway.

      But it is what is, so you have to censor yourself.

      Yes. There are tonnes of magazines of hand photography and countless websites with womens hands in the nude.

      HubPages is erring on the side of caution, staying well within the ToS of Adsense to protect both their and your Adsense Publisher accounts.

      Either leave it without the ads (you can change the advertising to none and it will remove the warning) or publish it elsewhere and link to a tamer but similarly themed hub if you think that the content is going to get a lot of traffic.

      want to see a very funny example of the craziness of censorship?
      do a hub search for nipples (forget about the breasts),
      and see what you get.

      here is a great one you find farther down the list:

        Ads are not enabled on this hub, I'm not sure what your point is.

    At least 70% of the hub has the word breasts?

    I realize that you are discussing a certain subject matter, but ads are disabled for a reason, because the hub would be consider provocative subject matter.

    You also include the words "seduction", including your keywords of breasts(multiple times) and "boobs"(multiple times)

    Any sort of provocative subject matter will have ads disabled.

    Nice hub,but the first two paragraphs have lots of links which will immediately take people out of your hub to other peoples hub.that is not a good idea.there is need to do things that will keep people on your hub instead of going away.
    hub you understand what i am saying.all the best.

      Your hub is published. Ads are disabled. Your HubScore will not be affected, and you can still use Amazon capsules. Please see: http://hubpages.com/faq/#adsdisabled

      Please remove the bold from your hub. It hurts my eyes.

      You should only use bold, underline and italics sparingly, to make a point.

    I would agree it might seem silly, but at the end of the day HubPages has to work to the criteria set out by advertisers. This protects everyone’s opportunity to earn.

    In the early days of Adsense there was an article, I think it was a published in leading online US newspaper, reporting on a particularly grizzly murder. The body was dumped in a leather suitcase. Unfortunately the page also sported paid advertising for leather luggage. Probably not the kind of content the advertiser wanted to be associated with. Since then the system has been tightened up to protect advertisers from being associated with content that could be potentially damaging.

      Wow that makes sense.
      I also read that word like death, paralyzed, terrorist are all taboo.. how accurate is this?

        camloposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I have a short story Hub about a funeral director. The word 'dead' is in the title, and the whole thing is about sex and death, yet it still has Google ads ... maybe I was just lucky ... maybe I should keep quiet ...

    Don't know how accurate or up to date it is.

      Add "nude" to the list.  At least I assume that's the word which has caused one of my hubs to fall foul of HP's filter.

        One of my art hubs had the ads temporarily disabled for the same reason. The ads are back on now.

      With that list you cant talk about any health topic, medication is one of googles bad words  big_smile  big_smile
      Do they strictly follow it?

      1. nicregi profile image63
        nicregiposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Hmm..good question. Maybe in general they do not follow but if it is too obvious in an article, then maybe they will get hit...if you get what i mean...

        just my 2 cents

      2. Peter Hoggan profile image83
        Peter Hogganposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I don’t know how strictly the list is followed or if context makes any difference, but if your ads are suspended it’s probably a good place to start looking.

        If you read the explanation, you can see that the list is guesswork - not officially from Google. 

        However it's true that you can't discuss anything sexual even if it's serious or even academic.  Daft isn't it.

    I would remove bold from the entire text for starters.

    If you write a hub about breasts then it is a fairly given fact that the majority of people searching for the word, will not really be interested in art.  Why would advertisers pay good money to display their adverts on a page which is for the most part visited by people with only one 'product' in mind?

  11. timorous profile image91
    timorousposted 6 years ago

    It's all so immature and puritanical.  It's the 21st century for [bleep] sake. Google (and everyone else) needs to wise up, and come up with a way of determining whether words like breasts, nudity etc. are in context, and the article tastefully presented.  Any mature, serious article should be allowed, as long as it's obviously not about salacious voyeurism or objectifying women etc.

    The more you try and make things like this 'dirty', the more people are likely to take advantage of it.  Whereas, if we'd all been brought up to take a more casual approach to nudity, and accept it as being natural, (while maintaining respect and decorum), the better off society would be.

    Relax already.

    1. Pcunix profile image90
      Pcunixposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      100% in agreement.  My wife and I started going to clothing optional beaches and resorts almost 30 years ago.  For the first few hours, it's very sexual.  After that, it isn't.  You get used to it and after that it is just comfortable and normal.

      It is all so ridiculous.

    2. thisisoli profile image61
      thisisoliposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      It doesn't always matter what the content is about, it is sometimes the search traffic that the advert is being displayed to.

      You have to ask yourself on any page, what would the advertiser want from this page?

      1. Pcunix profile image90
        Pcunixposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Yes.  But if our country weren't filled with people who think nudity is always sexual, you wouldn't have people searching for "breasts" when their real interest is in sex.  If nudity were common, people wouldn't be so uptight and crazy when they see it.

  12. Peter Hoggan profile image83
    Peter Hogganposted 6 years ago

    Brands are very protective about how they are perceived - placing an ad on a page that detracts from or damages that perception could be costly. Rules have to be set up to stop this happening, without those rules Adsense would simply not exist. Would you advertise via Adwords if you were concerned about the type of content your ads would be associated with? Probably not, I certainly wouldn’t. Whether you agree or not with the often puerile steps Google takes with Adsense, it is the medium we all have to work with at the end of the day that means working within the rules.

    IMO its utilitarianism at its worst.

    Finally, the hubpages team proved to be very understanding by re-enabling ads.. Thank you all and thank you Hubpages team...

      They always seem to catch up on disabled hubs.  It is just an automated flag for a human eye to check things over.  You never have anything to worry about anything if your content is informative, rather than pornographic.

      Just thought I would share a bit of hub love big_smile
