This is definitely a head-scratcher!
On my (Hub Mob) topic about vintage plumbing fixtures, Google has placed ads relating to voip and cell phones; on my (Hub Mob) topic about animal vs. human rights, they have placed plumbing ads!!

I received a notice about being charged to keep my Amazon affiliate program active if I have no sales in 90 days. I'm sure others share this issue. Since I agreed to use Amazon under Hubpages program ID, I do earn more...

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...

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google...
