I have gone into Google Adsense and blocked them but they still show on my hubs. There is no number to call adsense and they do not answer their help topics on the matter.
I do not make any money on my hubs because no one reading my hubs would consider clicking an ineffective health and healing ad. Though my hubs are about disease they are about curing them and I can go months without anyone clicking on the medical ads.
What do I need to do to change my ads to ads people will click on?
I just signed up for hub money and I want to control the ads in that so there will be ads people will click on.
Personally, I don't think it helps to block ad types to try and get better paying ads. For one the ads you see aren't necessarily what other people see - most google ads are based on previous searches of the viewer and not on page content.
Secondly, for ads that are based on page content, google will place ads that have the best bids, so removing a chunk of ads for them to choose from will lower click values.
AdSense and - to some degree - YieldBuild, which owns HubPages, control ads. Publishers do not. AdSense chooses ads based on auctions, which reflect their analysis of your content. The only option you may have is to work on improving use of the filter, as well as working with your keywords, headings, summary, and tags. Hopefully, you will see some improvement.
Don't the keywords and headings bring the traffic I am trying to reach? If I change them how will people find me based on my content?
The ads on my hubs don't make anyone money. It's a lose lose situation.
Can you tell me more about the filters? Are they a hub thing or an adsense thing?
I have also noticed that I never get notices when I subscribe to follow a forum or comments posted on a forum. I didn't even get a notice that you commented here and it is checked to email me someone replies to this post.
I was referring to the AdSense filters, but am no expert in using them. If you have already optimized your keywords etc., I guess there is not much more that you can do.
By the sound of it you've been using the Ad Review Centre in the Adsense Setup section, right?
If so you've likely blocked all those adverts appearing on your own share - however remember that 40% of the time, Hubpages adverts will appear which you have no influence over.
It sounds like it is what it is. I'm the only person in the world who could have this particular problem. I'll have to put up with ineffective ads smothering my blogs without making a check like everyone else.
I have blogs out there but they don't get near the traffic as my hubpages. I didn't created my hubpages for revenue I started them for sharing the content. Now that times are lean a little ad money might go a long ways to keeping my content available.
Thanks for all the advice and input everyone.
If you don't care about the ads you can turn them off for that hub.
