Having just witnessed the problems Wizzley has recently had with temporarily losing Adsense ads I have been thinking about my own account and decided that it is far better to be safe than sorry so have just been taking ads off on several of my hubs that could be viewed as promoting drugs or adult entertainment. They are not doing so and have been approved by HubPages but just in case someone from Google thinks differently I would rather have no ads showing!
I know people who have lost their Google accounts and failed to get them reinstated and it just isn't worth it to my mind to take the risk!
Ha I feel you on that one! Also, HubPages may have just not yet noticed these hubs. I literally had an active hub for two years that explained how to pass a marijuana drug test and they recently unpublished it. That hub was so helpful too!
Yes, that's the sort of hub that could lose you your account I would think!
Hey Bard of Ely! Thankfully, our automated filters and moderation team are pretty good at turning off ads on edge cases, so you shouldn't have to worry too much about this.
I quite appreciate how proactive you're being about this though! Better safe than sorry.
Yes, Hubpages shut google ads off on one of my hubs... Thank You for looking out for me Hubpages!
You are quite write in thinking about the worst and deleting the possible problem i.e. Adds. Hubpages do a good job with their filters as well.
HP turned the adds of on one of mine. Which is not promoting anything like drugs or murder, but brought up the subject of child abuse. It was thought the partners of HP would not agree to such a hub. This hub is my best viewed. OK, I except the what that HP tell's me, but what gets to me is that on some well known search engines you can find whatever porno sites you wish. Sometimes I just can't figure thing out what the search engine teams really want from us.
Yes, I have had HubPages turn off ads on hubs before and got them back on after appealing but even on these I have decided I don't want to risk it! I have plenty more hubs with advertising on and it is just a few that good get me into trouble!
HP has turned ads off one of my best performing hubs that gets thousands of hits. It's a medical hub about 'ladybits', but although I'm sure I'm missing out on loads of revenue, I think the decision is fair, because I can just visualise the type of ads that would appear!

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...

This is very difficult for me. I have created 3 hubs so far and am learning more and more about writing hubs as each day progresses. One of the more enjoyable and surprising aspects of HubPages is the community here. It...

I have a big concern about the ads coming up on my hubs and profile. They are almost pornographic. I make an effort to keep my writing respectful and suitable for all ages, and many pieces are spiritual in nature. The...
