    I was under the impression that hubbers are not supposed to click on ads. Why is there an ad on our homepage?

    why not have an ad on your home page, anyone can view your profile so you have a chance of revenue from it just as you have from your hubs .....jimmy

      No, I don't mean the profile, but the homepage. This one: http://hubpages.com/feed/

    Actually this is a good question - we're told over and over not to click our own adverts, or other people's adverts.

    Of course this is different - it's an advert that makes money for the HP Adsense account. Although it's not a prominent placement, maybe they think they can get clicks off new members. The feed isn't visible to anyone else.

      It's not visible to anyone but members?

      Maybe that's changed and no one bothered to notify the community. The forums are not solely for members, so maybe HP has changed the FEED to be recognized by outsiders.

      It would be the only reason why there would be an ad on it. Otherwise, it makes no sense whatsoever.
