    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.....

      I think ads become disabled when the subject matter is against Hub or Google policy. A very controversial topic might do it. Ie: abortion, murder.

        My newest hub got ads disabled too! They are fitness hubs taking about how to build the glute muscles. What the heck? My work is all for nothing.

      Hi Kain 360,

      Please check your email. We sent you a message explaining the reason ads were disabled on your Hub.

      Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions or concerns.

          Sent to the email address associated with your account (d*******90@yahoo.com) from team@hubpages.com...Maybe check your spam folder? It was sent at 5:59AM PDT. Hope that helps.

            Sorry I thought I had another email associated with this account.

            How is this sexually explicit? There is no nudity. There's a picture of a woman's butt but she is not naked. This is a 2000 page word in-depth article explaining how exercise can help men and women develop glute muscles.

            Is that picture of the woman inappropriate? I don't understand how it can be.

              I've read your hub and really don't see how anyone could call it 'sexually explicit'.

              I don't understand what's going on here. A few weeks ago I found an account with over 1000 hubs that hadn't been edited for years. Many of the photos were certainly more 'sexually explicit' than yours, and there were hubs on the topic of Women's Personal Hygiene that were written in a way that borders on 'crude'. Apart from that, all the hubs were somewhat on the short side. I reported the offending hubs and the account, but all hubs are still featured with ads enabled.

              Another hub I recently reported by another author has pixelated photos and a keyword stuffed summary. Nevertheless, it's still featured and appears on one of my hubs under Related Hubs, which I rather object to.

              By the way, if you browse through this list, you'll see what looks very much like a naked butt (unless it's updated before you get to it): http://hubpages.com/topics/fashion-and- … moval/1420

              I often find myself wondering why the rules of this site don't apply to all users.

                I agree.  If such rules are in place to protect HP's advertising account, then I assume inconsistent enforcement of the rules is as bad as not enforcing them at all. Moreover, it's bad for morale to not apply the rules equally to everyone.

                Of course, they will just say that hubs can slip through the *cracks* sometimes. wink

                  I've reported these hubs several times, so that would be interesting.

                How can I get my ads back? Is it the pictures that are considered sexually explicit? I mean that hub is like 2000 words. I'm not using profanity or other vulgar words.

                Yes, I see that picture of the nude butt; I don't have pictures like that!

                  I think you might get your ads back if you replace each article's main "butt shot" photo with a photo of the back side of a woman wearing form-fitting black workout pants (or pants of some other dark color). Yoga pants, workout pants, or leggings in a dark color would show off the form of her derriere, while giving an overall more covered-up look.

                  Personally, I think your current photos are OK, but obviously at least one HP moderator does not.

                  I'm just guessing, though. It would probably be quicker to email HP and ask them exactly what you need to change.

                    Thanks for the suggestion. I forgot about Yoga pants. I posted the pictures because they were relevant; not for sexual reasons.

                    Personally, I don't see a problem with the photos either, but I guess I'll look for replacements if I must. I've seen plenty of informative fitness articles with photos like mine.

    Fitness, dieting, weight loss especially, is bad news for adsense. It's ripe for scams and outrageous claims, even if you think it's legit.

    You are making claims about "How To Get A Bigger, Firmer, Lifted Butt! "

    That's a claim that is against adsense terms.

      What do you mean? If you exercise properly and eat right you can improve your  body.

    I agree that the photos aren't all that bad. I do not consider them sexually explicit, but I guess everyone draws a line in a different spot. The one with the lady in the pink booty shorts is worse, in my opinion, than the one with the white shorts. The white shorts totally cover the lady's cheeks, while the pink shorts show most of her butt. I would say replace the pink photo with one featuring a woman whose cheeks are completely covered, but if they consider the photo with the white shorts sexually explicit -- and the white shorts totally cover the butt -- then I don't know what to tell you. Maybe a photo of a woman in street clothes rather than workout clothes? Perhaps a tight but longer-length, darker-colored skirt that fits tightly and shows the shape of her behind? I just don't know... the white shorts are tight but totally cover her, so I am confused as to why that photo is considered sexually explicit.

      Pixabay has some tasteful public domain butts, for example

    Well like I said, I'm just guessing. It is probably worth your while to email HP and ask them what you meed to change.

    I had ads disabled on a post because it talked about virginity. So irritating, I have a blog where I use adsense and have never ruffled google's feathers when I write about grown up stuff.

    I'm confused, too, because my ads were disabled on a hub I wrote about ME being a victim of domestic violence!  They said ads are disabled because it's inappropriate.  Are we victims not allowed to talk about what happened to us?

      SmartAndFunposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I'm so sorry you were a victim of domestic violence. Yes, you are allowed to write about your experience, but HP says advertisers prefer not to attach their ads to certain subjects. Your words are not being removed -- only the ads are.

      I believe ad removal is automated. Email HP and ask them to have a real person review your hub and determine if ads can be reinstated. If HP still says "no ads" after a human review, at least your article is on the web where the information can be of help to other victims.
