My ads were diabled until I changed a titleon a hub I was writing.

    My hub wasn't pornographic and didn't contain sensitive issues. Why would changing a few words in the title make my hub okay? Certain words must trigger that warning?

        2009 Ice Storm: Pictures and Poetry. Maybe it didn't like the word "pictures," thought they were nudity or something. haha. I changed it to "An Ice Storm to Forget," and it was fine, then. Go figure. Thanks.

          Hello:

             There are invisible filters that are set up which detect inappropriate words. Or words that may sound inappropriate. For example I am writing a Hub about medications used to treat male impotency. For some reason I received a warning-stating that my Hub contains content about male sexuality. So I had to write the hubpages team to have a moderator go over it, before final publishing. And believe me, there is nothing dirty or suggestive about this hub-purely educational. And to add, I had typed 400 words already and am not finished. So it goes to show you it is usually filters that pick up these issues and not your writing. Hope this illustration answers some questions that a lot of hubbers may have. Good luck.

          That is a puzzler... I can't imagine what triggered the filter on that. smile

    Mine was on the 2009 Ice Storm: Pictures and Poetry. I think it didn't like the word "pictures." Nudity? So, I changed the title and it was okay. Thanks.

    I do n't think it could have been the word -  pictures as I have used that in titles before with no problems. I think if the hub is just photos it has to go in a certain category.

    But it wasn't all photos....just a few. But as soon as I changed the title, it was fine. Weird....

    Sorry I could not help, but the good news is if you put your new title into Google you are at the top of the page. smile
