I'd like some suggestions about how I can avoid having ads for dating services appear on my Hubpages. I have a Hub that I would like to publish, but don't want it to appear with the ads for beautiful women around the world.
Thank you very much.
Hi Cory, I have a suggestion. But I am not sure whether it will help you or not, as I suspect that HubPage default adsense ads setup will override that. Anyway, you can try this one.
Find out the site url from the provocative ads that are displayed. [you can do this by right click the ad - copy link location - paste on notepad. There you will be able to identify the offending url]
Now go to your adsense account. Click adsense setup tab - click Competitive Ad Filter tab. Enter the offending urls in the box and save changes.
As we have no control on similar ads appearing on hubs during the HubPages share of impressions, I do not think you can make those ads go away without the admin deciding to do the same. But at least you can stop those ads from appearing in your share of impressions.
If it's not ABOUT dating, the ads will align with whatever it IS about within a few hours.
I can sympathize with you in this area, as it is happening to my family related hubs too. I don't know who to contact concerning this, or if we can do anything about it. It just looks so embarassing to think that readers are seeing these distasteful ads. Is there any answer?
I wonder why these provocative ads are the default? I mean I understand that they will reset once Google crawls the page, but in the meantime can't they display more family-friendly ads?
Right, Janet, that's exactly what I was thinking of. Even if temporarily, those are the ads people will see in the first day or two ,pretty embarassing, especially if you have a professional hub. With so many topics there are possibly imaginable, why those?
There is no default.
The ads that Google puts up before it crawls your page are the most frequently-occurring ads site-wide.
When I started, it was Tattoos. Since then we have had an influx of young Indian males making photo galleries for the viewing pleasure of other young Indian males, so the most common keyword on the site now appears to be "sexy".
Unfortunately, given the general human fascination with the process of reproduction, this is probably going to remain the case in the future.
Perhaps HubPages could set up a default - pick something with high-value keywords that is morally neutral, like "mortgages", and start with that. i don't know if Adsense supports this feature, though.
I tend to agree with you Jenny, but the fact that when you started here it was tattoos would imply hope that something else will come along to replace the Indian males.
I appreciate all the responses! I'd much prefer tattoos to the female - and male - exploitation ads. Thanks!!!
I hope something can be done, I am writing a hotel review and after contacting the hotel and getting permission they would like to see the hub once published. Of course they will get disappointed if they see it surrounded by provocative ads!
This is on our radar, but we haven't come up with a workable solution yet.
question... does hp currently use section targeting?

We do not, but in general there is very little non-relevant content on a hub. I also don't think this will help with pages that google hasn't crawled and processed yet -- which I believe is the main issue.

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...
