Have you seen an ad on a Hubpage that just...somehow...doesn't fit? This was mildly irritating at first, and I don't remember the ads, but today I saw one that topped any list. On a page discussing benzodiazepine addiction and recovery, I saw an ad for "Cheap Xanax (another benzo)!
I wondered if anyone else had seen anything like this. Post it here.
I mostly notice them when a hub is freshly published. Usually, the ads are about dating or some such thing, regardless of the topic.
I think you're getting that in accordance with some of your keywords. Guess they don't discriminate between trying to get off the drugs and trying to get some drugs. Either that, or they figure their target audience will see that ad and get some more instead of beating their addiction.
Anyway, there's nothing personal about the ads placed, they're just matched to the tags and basic content, I think.
those weren't my hubs - they were published a while ago by a drug rehab place called novus detox. i was doing a search and they have 57 hubs on drugs but only a good rating and i was curious so i clicked on one.
somewhere i have a quote about how random the universe is. it doesn't surprise me that the google universe is just as random.

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

Does Google hate HubPages? I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?

Anyone who knows SEO knows that Google prefers fresh content but when our newely published hubs undergo the 24 hour pending publication with a no index tag added to the robot txt our hubs loose their freshness by the time the no index tag is taken off therefore Google does not give our hubs the...
