I am noticing advertisments on my Hubs for things that I morally dont agree with. Is it possible to stop this? Can everyone else see the same ads that I can see? Psychic readings, Tarot cards etc - They have absolutely nothing to do with the subjec of my Hubs!
Some advice would be great please - Thank you
How can you be morally against psychic readings? sure some of them are scam artists but I wouldn't say psychic readings are immoral lol
If the ads are Adsense ads, you can reduce their appearance by using the "Allow and Block Ads" tab in your Adsense account.
However that won't make any difference to HP Ads, or Adsense ads during HP's share of impressions.
There isn't really much you can do unless the ads are against adsense rules.
There are more crappy looking ads than these... Phew I wonder what readers would think but I guess they see different ads from what we see ..based on their preferences and the geographic locations.. So don't worry too much about that which is beyond your control!
I checked several of your hubs and I didn't see any of the ads you described. You can change your preference in your Google account but I am not sure if you can block those ads on hubpages. I block ads on my blogs on blogger but I don't think you can with hubpages. I could be wrong!
It it's any consolation - the Ads Change. If you check back in an hour or so, they will change to another Ad. Hopefully, one that is to your liking.
Thank you for your replies. I have monitored the adverts on my blog so that I dont get stuff I dont agree with. However I would have thought the ads would have at leat bee related to the subject of the Hub. That is what I understood when I signed up! Was I wrong? After all if you are reading something about childcare, it is very unlikely that you want a dating ad - am i right?? well at that moment anyway - it's unrelated.
I guess you didn't get the point... the ads change according to the personal preference of the person reading your article.. that should work in your favor hopefully.. but the readers preference is beyond your control. The ads are supposed to be based on the words used in the first paragraph..or so I have read... so has to be in someways related to your hub.
@mathair: Actually, there probably is a connection between childcare and online dating.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 11.7 million single parents lived with their children in 2010.
Those parents, who are naturally going to be interested in childcare since they have a kid, probably can't just go out any time of the week and meet people so they probably try online dating to meet somebody.
I don't know about the tarot card stuff though.
I've seen tattoo ads on my profile page. And so it goes...
The ads match the viewer as well as the page. So if they just browsed for saxophones it may show that topic regardless of what the hub is about.
Yep Google remembers what you are interested in.
If I see that Gay Dwarf ad one more time I swear I'll do something.
At first the ads are usually totally unrelated but with time get a bit closer to matching the subject of your hub. If a hub is untouched or little viewed...the ads seem to get off target again over time. At least that is what I have found. Not much we can do about it except to refresh our hubs every now and then and cross our fingers. )
The point is that there are adverts on my Hubs that I dont agree with. I may not have phrased it very well in saying that I morally disagreed with them but I do feel that many of them do take advantage of vulnerable people by getting them to pay vast amounts of money to hear something that will make them feel better. This is just my opinion.
If you want the thread to be whether there is anything you can do, well, debating the morals of psychic services is probably going to put an end to any hope of that.
I am sure I will not be morally agreed with as I am a Pagan, tarot reader and much more. However, I have also noticed, as explained here very well, that the ads are influenced by several different things. Personally, if I see an ad I don't like, it does not bother me, because if someone else likes it and clicks on it, I make some coin.

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without...
