    I know according to the FAQs this is not the forum for ad related problems, but could you direct me as to where to report this?:
    I have a Hub on how I moved and restored my house, showing the remodel.  Right under my opening photos, there is a photo (ad) of an old dilapadated house!  It looks like part of my Hub.  What can I do to get that changed?
    Here is the Hub;

      Unfortunately, it's not practical for us to block individual ads. There was a thread a while back addressing this same issue: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/99276

      As paradigmsearch says, this is one of many ads that will appear on that Hub over time. If you believe an ad is against HubPages' policy, let us know by emailing adops@hubpages.com.

        Thanks.  I see the ad is gone now.  Has been replaced.  I just didn't want viewers to think that was a photo of my house!  It didn't even look like an ad.

          IN case the ad comes back, there is a way to escape it. DO NOT CLICK ON IT. Request a friend to do so and mail you the url of that page. Then, in your google adsense account, there is a section to block out specific urls. Place that url in the 'banned' list and it'll never bother you again.

          Hope that helps

            Thanks so much.  I will remember that!  I have not seen that ad on my Hubs, but I've seen it on others.

            Or you can simply right click and click "Copy link address".

    The ad is gone now. My guess is that you will only be tortured with it occasionally.

    On a different note, some of the ads that are appearing on my hubs are for "Find a no strings attached relationship" and feature a sexy looking lady. I really do not want these ads on my hubs. Can anything can be done about them?...........................hmm

      Hi Luis -- could you take a screenshot of the ad and email it to adops@hubpages.com? Please include the Hub(s) that you saw the ad display on. We do not respond to individual requests to block a specific ad unless the ad in question is against policy. Sounds like this one may be on the cusp.

        OK, I have sent you a screen shot. These ads have been appearing everywhere on my hubs, profile etc....

        Marina, here's a link to a question I raised recently on the same concern. There's a screen shot included, and responses from others with similar experiences.

    An advert you see may never be seen on that hub by any other person.

    Adsense displays adverts based on search history, location and a range of other factors - so everyone usually sees different adverts.

    It's just like the weather. Give it a day and a different cloud will blow in.
