I am so tired of seeing the ad for saggy skin on HP. Am I the only one that thinks those ads are disgusting?
Oh, yes, me too. They seem to be everywhere! I just saw an ad on one of my recipe/flash fiction hubs that turned my stomach and is not appropriate to be on that hub due to turning one's stomach ...being it was about yeast in the stomach and showing a big fat belly fat! Makes one not even want to read the hub! But I guess they paid for the ad ... I thought in the past the ads would match the topic of the hubs better, but I guess that is out the window with just making money.
I see them too and it's not because I Google how to combat saggy skin. I feel like HP has a hidden camera and is telling me to tighten up!
Ads are posted according to key words in the article and sometimes they just choose weird seeiming words for the matches. In this one they may have chosen the word stomach.
I strongly suspect the more crass the ad, the higher the CPM. When they come up with a toenail fungus foot standing on a saggy stomach covered in vomit, we can all retire.
I keep getting ads about "What Ellen is hiding!" and "You won't believe her transformation!" Still better than the ads about the clogged arteries though.....

Yesterday I was confidant that e-mailing HP staff would result in the ads being turned back on, on the four hubs (and counting) of mine that have had their ads disabled. This was not the case, and I was told by HP staff that all four would remain ad-less for being against the Google TOS.Do...

Many of my hubs feature little kid's birthday party ideas and on most of them these are the kinds of ads I am seeing on the bottom of the page. I don't think it looks great especially since they are way off topic.

I was just wondering how successful people are with the Hubpages ad program and if anyone had managed to make payout in one day yet. I have yet to earn over $5 in one day from the ad program. How about everyone else?

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...
