      Writer Fox, SmartAndFun, and  calculus-geometry have provided good information.

      We do have a special arrangement with Google AdSense for the ad layout we use.

      Your Hub does ask people to click ads, which violates the policy The text in your Hub says Just click on the ad
      Please address this issue.
      You can email us if you have any further questions.

        Thanks for pointing that out. I have removed that sentence. I put that in under the description of a specific Amazon product. My ads are disabled on this hub. Maybe they will review this hub and enable the ads. To be on the safe side, I did a search of the hub for "click" and "ad" to see if I did it again and saw that there words are not on it. To others seeing this, I do have 169 hubs and have been in HP for 4 years and this is the first time that this has happened.

      I know it seems mad, but I think the reason may be adult content.  You repeat the word "breast" a lot, and there are numerous references to female reproductive areas.   Plus you have a picture of a lingerie model.   Google's robots are dumb - they are not good at identifying context, they're just looking for repetition of rude words.

        There were about 10 times I used the word "breast" and every time it said "breast cancer." I do know that there must be hubs about breast cancer and that word is used a lot. Also maybe someone has a hub about cooking chicken breast. Since you mentioned it there is another meaning of this word-- chest. So men and women have a breast but women also have 2 breasts.

    I didn't read the entire article as it is quite long, but I did take a look at the advertisements and noticed that in the Amazon ad for the Green Energy Bar, you added "just click on the ad" in the product description. I think you were simply directing the reader to more information, but I can certainly see how Google might interpret this as asking people to click on your ads.

    I followed that earlier thread and was glad the problem was resolved, but IIRC no one ever mentioned what Google's issue with that hub was. It would be helpful for the rest of to know what to avoid.

      I looked at the article and didn't see anything wrong with the ads, but we might all see different ads, I'm not sure.

      If there was a problem with an Amazon ad, that would not concern Google, would it?

        SmartAndFunposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        I don't know; it seems reasonable that Google wouldn't care about an Amazon ad. On the other hand, if their bots are finding the words "click on the ad" within the page, it might set off the mechanism that sends out that warning email.

        I see the words "click on the ad" in the Amazon product description for Greens+ Energy Bars -- this is the portion of the ad where the author adds their own comments. Chuck Bluestein is instructing readers to go to Amazon to check out the product's ingredients, but nevertheless the copy says "click on the ad."

        I am curious to know what the problem was the last time someone started a forum thread with this problem.

          I did not know before if the description of amazon products was searched by the search bots and now I know that they are.

        You are not allowed to use words asking visitors to click on ads, no matter what the ad is.  It's possibly because Google's robots can't judge which ad the text falls next to.

    You ought to disable the ads on that particular article in the meantime until you figure out what is wrong.

  4. Chuck Bluestein profile image44
    Chuck Bluesteinposted 3 years ago

    Yes I did not think that the words in the Amazon ad would bother Google but they also said in addition to their ads. "bring excessive attention to ad units." So I removed it. I was trying to get people to read the ingredients.

    I can understand that if you bring attention to other ad units that compete with Google, they may not like it. Thanks!

    I have my own website and have had it for 4 years. But I like using HP instead. The filters on this website warn me of different things that may be wrong and this does not happen on my website. Also links between other hubs on the same subject are probably better for search results. On my own I would have never been able to resolve the above issue.

    Well, that is a very positive way of looking at the filters. We do not hear things like that everyday in the forums. HubPages is a great place to write and learn, and those filters can help with the learning curve I guess. I am glad you weren't frustrated by it all, but used it as a cool tool instead.

      Thanks! I guess I need to write a hub about how everything that happens to you is the best thing for you.

        Now, that is a hub I would want to read.

          Thanks! I will make that a priority. I think that I will call the article, The 2 Biggest Secrets of Life.
