When I attempted to read a Hub, this huge ad floated up and covered the entire page. Had I been an outside reader, I most likely would have left. Is this the correct Topic to report this problem? I was on this Hub:
http://sunnieday.hubpages.com/hub/Gods- … apter-Four
Strange when I opened this link, I have not seen any huge ad.can you post a better screenshot.
Of course YOU didn't see the ad. The ad isn't for HubPages members.
It is always best to read hubs being logged into your account.
When I reread the Hub, this didn't happen again. I still have the screenshot but cannot figure out how to make it bigger. Thanks, H-bird.
I've got these big ads on my own hubs they are huge ads from the right sidebar and there's an option to reduce them. I wonder what visitors will think about them..
When I am on a website and that happens, I leave. It is hard to read something and remain interested when an ad is flashing, floating or screaming. I daresay many other visitors might leave also. That is why I started this thread because I think HubPages frowns on this type of ad.
I wasn't going to say anything, but I have been getting them even while I am signed in. I didn't know if it was from my end or HP. I am finding them annoying.
I was signed in also when it happened to me. And the Hub I was reading had nothing to do with the type of ad that floated up and covered the screen. That kind of "in your face" advertising turns me off and I would never click on something like that.
This one doesn't look as big as the one you got, but still a bit irritating.
Edit: Stupid HP uploader keeps making them super tiny, heres the full size:
I haven't seen them, but that can't be very attractive to readers. Staff needs to look at this.

I noticed at about 9am today that each time I look at any Hub, I get an ad filling my screen at first. Is this a new feature of HP? Thanks. I'm not clicking ads, honest!

I am still getting full-width Google ads in the middle of my pages, messing up the layout.The impact of this is that it looks like the Hub is only a few paragraphs long, and readers are unlikely to scroll down far...

I just saw it on "The April Christmas Gift - ..." by CraftytotheCore. I do not know where else it will be.Maybe the picture was not as bad this time, unless it keeps changing.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...
