I've just written a hub on travel preparations.. nothing contentious except I put in a throwaway line about not mentioning bombs in the airport.
I've just checked the page and one of the picture ads is a new one for my pages. It's for muslimsingles.com There are no other keywords that could even be remotely applied to the muslim culture except for that one word that seems to trigger the ridiculous stereotype of all muslims being bombers.
Call me sensitive? perhaps I am, but I'm seriously not happy.
Does anyone know if there's a way to whine to google about this?
MIsha's right. Almost all hubs start with those kinds of ads until the Google spiders have time to crawl your page. When they do they'll change them to more appropriate ads. Sometimes. Most of the times. Cheers!
I've also noticed that the ads on my Hubs seem more relevant when Google is using my ad code and become less relevant when they switch to the HubPages code.
Maybe you could use negative keywords to keep the silly match ups out? I did just that, and the offending items were removed from the list when I refreshed.

Nearly every hub I have read including my own do not have Ads relevant to whatever hub. Why do we bother trying to get the right tags when they put irrelevant Ads in there anyway?
