Here is the thing. I've disabled ads on my "atheist hub" and "smoking hub" so that adsense's ads wouldn't appear on them. I don't plan putting ads on it since adsense doesn't like them.
My adsense is still being reviewed for final approval. Cassie Smith advised me to unpublish first my violating hubs because adsense would probably check them even if their ads were not on them. I can just publish them later when I get the approval.
Is it not true that adsense would only check the hubs where their ads appear?
Any advise on what action should I take?
Will I lose the traffic or the SEO ranking I've gained and the comments therein if ever I unpublish them?
I'm by no means an authority on this; I can only share my own experience. I have a hub where no ads appear - it's a commentary on the murder of Yeardley Love, and I didn't pull any punches by sanitizing the violence. I published it before applying for AdSense, and there were no problems in getting approved, from what I can tell. It will continue to appear with no ads, though, because the references to violence fall outside of those guidelines.
It is eligible, however, for HP's revenue program.
FYI - I had several other hubs published by the time I applied, so there was plenty of content for them to review aside from the Yeardley Love hub.
I don't know how unpublishing would affect your SEO ranking. Perhaps others have info on this. It might be possible to actually raise your stock if you unpublish hubs that have very low scores or do not perform well.
Hope this helps!
In fact, the OP's AdSense application has been disapproved for unacceptable site content, as far as the OP has informed us yesterday. If AdSense reviews the site, they will probably be looking at all hubs, not only those with AdSense ads.
it is now. i've resubmitted and is now active again and waiting for final approval. it was not disabled but just disapproved.
This is what adsense policy's statement regarding site content:
"Publishers may not place AdSense code on pages with content that violates any of our content guidelines. Some examples include content that is adult, violent or advocating racial intolerance."
It said "may not place adsense code on pages." that sounded like they know i've got multiple pages (take note, not websites but pages).
So, what I did is I removed adsense on pages I feel in violation to their policy.
Or did I get it wrong?
I still had the chance of resubmitting and I did.
Unacceptable site content: Your website contains content that we do not
allow at this time. Please review our policies
(https://www.google.com/adsense/policies) for a complete list of site
content not allowed on webpages.
To update and resubmit your application, please visit
http://www.google.com/adsense and sign in using the email address and
password you submitted with your application. Our specialists will review
your account for compliance with our program policies, so please make sure
to resolve all of the issues listed above before resubmitting.
It is never prudent to have any contents on a site with AdSense that goes against their guidelines, even if ads are disabled on some pages. The prudent thing to do would be to place controversial content on a different site that does not have AdSense.
