What is wrong with my hub?

    My hub about sexual abuse of children in religious cults was manually blocked from ads.  I have asked the moderators twice and I have read the FAQ.  My hub is based on book reviews of cult survivors.  I do not think I have unfairly targeted any group, nor do I promote child abuse (I am against it).

    What's going on?

      My hub.

      http://hubpages.com/hub/Male-sexual-abu … the-trauma

      Was also blocked manually by the moderators.
      I think it is just the subject matter that is not google friendly.
      My hub is a personal account of sexual abuse.It was written hopefully to help others,so ads being disabled is not a problem.
      In hindsight,I think ads maybe devalue this particular hub.

    Certain words automatically trigger the filter. Displaying ads on such content can get your Adsense account banned for good.
    The staff need some time to review the hub. When did you contact them?

      maybe 3 or 4 days ago, and again today.  It says it was manually blocked, rather than by a filter.

        here's the reply from the moderators:

        'AdSense has requested that we do not serve ads on pages with graphic sensitive content, such as child molestation and rape content.  This is for the protection of your AdSense account, as well as the rest of the site.'

        So looks like HP allow sensitive hubs to be published, but blocks them from adsense because of adsense rules

    They don't like the words that go with the subject, not the meaning just the words themselves.  I doubt that Mr Googly al go rhythm  can differentiate between the uses for a good or bad cause.

      ok, so it's because it has words like sex and incest?

        Yes. Replace those terms with "do it" and "kentucky love" and you'll be good to go.

        (No offense intended towards Kentuckians.)

          nah, I'd rather not get paid for it than to have to water it down.  We used to have a bird called Ken - short for Kentucky Fried Cockatiel

    And I guess I really shouldn't joke about such an issue.

    EDIT: But that never stopped me before.
