Google sex ads!

    How can we get google to place ads that coincide with the topic of our hubs?  I just published a hub about horses and google has put ads to date foreign girls on it.  I would like them taken off please.

    Thank you,
    Thywill

      Hi Thywill,

      I was wondering the same thing: How come sexy google ads keep popping up on hub when my hub had nothing to do with sex? Now that I read all of the comments in respect to this question, I understand. Let me thank you all for your comments.

    Wait a few hours and I am sure the ads will update to more closely match the content of your hub.

      Thank you for that.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    In the meantime you can speed up the process by adding some more specific key word tags.  For example, if you add the several longtail keywords as tags to help more relevant ads find their way to your hub.

    There is a problem again though with the right ads "sticking" - on my last hub  I got relevant ads after a few hours - and then went back to the default "asian girls"  - and has stayed there for the last couple of days - the hub is well focussed on the keywords I want to trigger adsense and its very frustrating as my keywords should trigger much better paying ads - and there are plenty of them - too - if I publish elsewhere on the topic there is no problem with relevant ads

    I've also seen sex and tattoo ads return to my Hubs after varying periods of absence.   Seen 'em on other folks' Hubs as well.

    I know sex ads bring quick bucks and attention, but if Google defaulted to public service ads, or something reputable at least, it would make all sites that use Adsense more reputable in turn.  I believe Google, and all of their higher quality affiliates (like us!), would benefit.

    Is there a way for internet communities like ours to campaign Google for decent default ads?

    (By the way, I'm no prude.  Sex ads have their place, just not every place.)

    The default ads are based on the ads showing most often across the entire site (which is based on the content across the entire site).

    To change them off "sex", some other topic will have to out-publish it.

    "Run Your Car On Water" is the only possible contender I can see at the moment ....  *eyeroll*

    So Google would have to change their methods and algorithms altogether, or Hubbers would need to mount a massive conspiracy to publish, oh, maybe recipes only, or something.

    Not real encouraging, especially seeing's how I don't cook.

    "Make A Million in 24 Hours Online!!!" could be another contender.  (... yuck ...)

      I vote for this!

      I am a fairly good cook, but hopelessly uncreative, so I could use the inspiration. smile

    I have other multi page sites which show relevant ads and differnet ads on differnt pages depending on hte page content - its not a google problem its a yieldbuild problem with is hubpages

      nail on the head right here. Until the major indexed focus on hub pages varies away from sexually oriented material, those ads will continue to pop up on here.

      BTW, hi Lissie!, humerous to run into you on here as well as the other site.

    I don't suppose that setting up a separate site for sexy photo galleries would help much, unless they went to an entirely different domain?

    I would like to see this issue resolved as well.  I just don't like those ads on my pages for any reason at all, and feel that is detracts from the credibility of Hubpages as a whole.

    Is there anyway to lose those ads?

    I never used to get this problem and today I see them on a few of my hubs, that have nothing to do with dating or sex.  It makes my hubs look like they are sponsoring smut and I don't really care for this--no matter who they are from.

      It's a site wide effect and you can see relevant ads showing up soon, it happens everytime smile
