Can you use the word 'sperm' in a Hub without running into problems? (And I'm not talking whales.)
I don't see why not. It's in the dictionary, after all.
FYI - I used the word sperm and numerous other body-part or reproductive words in a hub I wrote about dating & HIV. It was an assigned title, when I went through the AP gig, so it was vetted completely & gets good traffic. It also has ads.
Hope that helps?
I don't see why it would be an issue.
I've seen hubs with ads discussing sperm topics.
Thanks. It's ads that are my concern after reading all of the forum posts about the word 'breast' in chicken recipes or articles about cancer.
You can always choose not to display ads and write to your heart's content.
...and I also recall the example of "butt" in a gardening Hub. Not to mention the trouble I've had with my belly dancing Hubs.
The only trouble you may have is maybe with them disabling ads, for that is what happened on one of mine dealing with men's sexual health issues, which was fine with me, and it is one of my highest scoring hubs, but no ads for it.
This is so confusing. I just looked at a Hub that used the word sperm more than 50 times and it has ads on it. Maybe you should try putting WTF in the title!
That was the best title you could come up with for this thread? lol
I don't see why it should be a problem. But if there is, then there is something really wrong with the site. Of course, I also don't know the context of the hub, so there's that too...
Am I the only one with the Monty Python song stuck in my head now?
"Every sperm is sacred
Every sperm is great!
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate!"
Nope, but it's not a well built old man or a hideous toenail so Im ok with it.
This is what I'm seeing now on this thread, two ads for couples resorts:
Im seeing two ads for Ancestry.com.. however I was just doing a search of my maiden name so there you go. I promise you I don't have a toenail fungus or a thing for well built older men. I think when we clear our cache it just reverts to the same main ads for all of us... cause a lot of other ppl have had those ads too... just glad we're not getting ads having anything to do with the title.
This is the oddness of WF. On the one hand he/she knows stuff. Like targeted ads mean you see ads based on browsing history. On the hand, he/she cannot understand why couples ads appear on his/her browser in these forums.
It is the gap between having facts and having understanding, perhaps.
Between the conception and the creation falls the shadow.
You are my new best friend for knowing that song.
Well, if WTF can appear in a hub of the day headline than why can't the word sperm be used? Referring to whales or otherwise. Sperm is part of F***ing in WTF.
Every sperm is sacred
Every sperm is great
If a sperm is wasted
God gets quite Irate! ~Monty Python~
This is the oddness of WA. He doesn't understand that SEO professionals use an encrypted browser because ads displayed are important and affect income earned.
Headpieces filled with straw. Alas!
An encrypted browser? Good heavens you are sort of like Dan Dare, lol.
I just use one browser (FF) set to clear the cache when it it is closed. And another browser (Chrome) that picks up all the usual crap that Joe Normal's browser does.
But please tell me more about this encrypted browser. I might be interested in acquiring it.
I am also interested to know why you think ads viewed on an encrypted browser would tell you anything useful. After all, how many people ever bother to view a page with anything other than a standard crap saturated browser?
Interesting. Could you point me towards a good article where I can read more about this issue (non-personalized ads by way of browser encryption, not ... the other thing)?
Lol, you obviously did not read this thread.
Even Beth knows about clearing the cache. Beth probably knows how to get rid of targeted ads by visiting Google too.
On this issue, let Beth be your guru.
Write a letter to Google and ask them to get rid of your targeting ads.
Beth, the anti-Guru.
Personally, I have never used this but it probably works:
Choose Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox. Visit ad settings first it says.
That wasn't right? It felt right.
Does any one else feel slightly embarrassed when they see the title of this thread with their name next to in it the forum?
Are you the desperate attention seeker in these forums?
Well that seemed hurtful.
I'll just go write my book... while you start a thread on your inability to perform heart surgery.
It certainly was not meant to be hurtful. I did not imagine for a moment that you would think that you were the desperate attention seeker I was talking about.
You did not title this thread for one thing.
Anyway, I am a bit distracted work-wise at the moment so I will take full responsibility for being a lousy communicator and shut up.
I wasn't worried. I figured you had a harmless meaning. You always have some kind of meaning with what you say. I feel it is my job to decipher it. So talk on, I'll get my thinking cap on.
I am working on my book now. Colin Firth (sigh) is the character who is interacting with my lead right at the moment. It's my own personal movie in my head. At the end of it all, if nothing more comes of it, Ive entertained myself. My daughter has been subjecting me to "My Little Pony", but now she is tired of that and has moved on to a pig movie. These are good times. Enjoy your work... whatever it is that you do.
I emailed Colin about you and he said he had a team in place in case you went stalker.
So duty done I can relax a little. Glad to here your novel is coming along. Slightly alarmed to hear that your daughter has a Camaro.
Actually it is very, very hard to relax today, so maybe back to work. I am, unfortunately forced to make a living writing online.
Thanks, Will — That seems like an interesting app.
How does that help?
It gives you an encrypted search but then drops you straight back into standard non-encrypted protocols if you click on a search result.
At no point does it help you see non-personalized on-page ads!
Just do what normal people do, clear the cache on your browser.
Or perhaps use Startpage that offers encrypted search and quick proxy to view pages in the results.
It is always the same pattern.
You say something untrue.
Someone challenges you.
You start throwing up smokescreens.
It's not a smokescreen; it's trying to teach an old dog new tricks.
I notice you have been deploying irony, Mark. Waste of time. You have to nail him/her with facts. He/she absolutely hates them.
The fate of the little ones is at stake!
He's still doing it. How long does it take humans before they go blind?
I'll tell you what, WF. I will let you off the omnibox issue if you tell us if you are a man or a woman. At least I won't have to do the 'he/she' stuff all the time.
I think you are someone who enjoys being confused about he/she stuff.
So you cannot even clarify that one small issue. Well, I am going to start calling you 'she' unless you correct me. Hope that is okay.
Well that was a fun way to start my morning.
I would imagine the rest of the content would be more the determining factor than the one word, however, one is often met with surprises on HP!
Yes, you can. You may want to turn ads off and it does depend how you use it.
I can't believe this thread took a nose dive. It had such a lofty beginning.
Paul E. answered my question on this thread. Case is closed. Do not bump.

Have any of you found detestable ads on your hubs? It is a "game" with girls in bras...how distasteful I want it off my hub...do you know if we have a say in this? It has nothing to do with my poem and is disgusting to me.
