Just saw a pink, white, blue-writing Voicefive popup ad.
Apparently, HP is not alone...
From cnet: "How do I get rid of the pop up from hell? Voicefive?"
We'll look into it! Could be a rogue ad we need to find and take down. Thanks for pointing this out!
What page did you see it on, paradigmsearch? The VoiceFive surveys are cookie targeted (served via Google AdSense) and you can opt out of them directly from their privacy page.
Adsense does popups? Those rascals... I shall make no further comment...
The page where this nefarious deed occurred has faded into distant memory. I'm not concerned, just thought you guys would want to know.
Hopefully others will post, confirming; and be more coordinated than I am, and will remember the location.
Come to think of it, you said survey. I didn't realize. If this was another HP initiated survey, then I shouldn't have bothered you. If that is the case, I am slinking away as you read this...
I just got a pop up ad too. It was on my hub titled "Grandma's Heirloom Northern Chili with Egg Noodles: Easy and Under-30-Minutes"
While I know which page it was on, I do not remember the ad's content. It WAS pink, white and blue with a shoe (high heel, I believe) on it. I clicked it away in disgust and came to the forums to see if anyone else had pop up ads. I'm super glad to see this is not a new Hubpages deal.

This probably isn't a bug, but it's annoying and I wish Hubpages wouldn't do it. There is an ad which plays sound appearing on some of my hubs. I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a crowd cheering. The ad is also one which appears right at the bottom of the page,...

Would it be possible to take the one Adsense ad that is placed on our hubs higher on the page so that readers are more likely to see them. By the time readers get past the Q and A, if they even get that far, it's possible that not many see those ads, which means our income gets affected.

The small right hand corner pop up is very annoying. It is a video pop up about 4 inches by four inches. I have even had a friend who reads my Hubs ask and complain about it. Pop ups are very annoying to people. They do not like them. I have Firefox set to block all pop ups and it still pops up and...

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...
