I wrote a hub about free samples and posted it about a month ago. I turned off Google ads because they distract a lot from the main content, and was happy with the appearance of my hub. I returned to it today to realize that every word that says "coupon", "free", "free stuff" etc, is underlined and flashes some sort of ad.
Here is my hub with over 10 ads on it that I did not allow!

My hub now looks spam-y and trashy. I really do not like this. Anyone knows how to get rid of it?
HubPages does not have in-line text ads.
What you are describing is the result of malware on your own computer. You'll want to take the necessary steps to scan for and get rid of it.
She's right. I looked from a logged out comp and they aren't there for me either.
Your browser is displaying wrongly, abnormally so - update it and scan your pc for malware or viruses today.
Malwarebytes is a great place to start if you're scanning for malware and viruses (and it's free). Webroot is excellent as well, and i believe has a free trial.
Indeed, I run a PC Cleaner today and all the ads are gone. Thank you very much!

Ads on my hub titled "Alex Kelly Rape Case: Talk About Rushing to Judgment! " have been disabled by a moderator. While I do not really care about making money on ads (I'm not even sure what ads I had on the hub) I'm puzzled about this action by HubPages because there remain two ads on my...

I wrote a hub about the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile after my family saw it in person. Now I get a notice saying that it is possibly going to be unpublished due to adult content. I can't find any adult content at all--this hub is just fun and history. Can you see what is wrong with...

One of my hubs ads were disabled! This was the same hub that someone copied word-for-word last year (I made a forum post about it). Why would my hubs ads be disabled? I never had this happen all the years I've been writing for HubPages. This was a fairly successful hub too.....
