    I'm aware that google is very particular about what we write about, nothing too controversial or outrageous and nothing adult.

    I'm puzzled then why google are running ads "Date a local Slag" on HubPages!

    I almost find that offensive.

      Maybe google hasn't realized the new meaning of that term yet.

      I noticed that when I type in words like casinos, poker, gambling, etc; nary an ad is to be found on their homepage.

        Yahoo, on the other hand, still has casino ads plastered all over the place.

        It's hardly new! I've known it as a derogatory name for a woman for most of my life.
        Certainly been around for longer than google has.

          It is hypocritical if nothing else by Google.  They penalize content sites for mentioning words like this, but it's okay for them to make money on ads about the same thing.  Isn't there a word for this?  yikes

              Yes, that's the one!  smile  Sorta like them running the Panda and Penguin programs to remove cr*p from the top of the SERPS and then this is all you find afterwards.

          But they will pull their ads using that word from our hubs if we use it.

          It is odd.

    And good luck with product hubs going forward I think...

    When I did searches for shoes, and then for TV's; the search results were nothing but stores, manufactures, and websites selling the stuff direct.

      Glad I don't write product hubs then.
