I couldn't quite believe the recommended hubs shown at the bottom of one of my literature hubs - How to Shave Your Butt together with Sebaceous Pimples/Boil Removal again showing what is I think a sickly photo of a butt. Perhaps the joined up thinking is that once a reader has finished with a serious literature read what they most need is a clean shaven posterior! Or perhaps they already have one? What's the point?
I think the sebacious cyst photo is particularly off putting, even though the hub does have good info. It seems to be recommended under any health related hub. The butt on the other one is not as ugly, and I guess the info would be useful if I wanted to shave my butt and didn't know how.
Chef, I have commented about them on the other thread that has been going for a couple of weeks. There is nothing really wrong with either hub, just that they are constantly showing as the recommended hubs everywhere and they are not a good advertisement for our writing. The titles and images are unattractive. I even reported them as offensive but nothing has been done to have them replaced from the recommended hubs. With all the advertising they get these must be the two most read articles on HubPages. I wish I could get one of my hubs highlighted there. Maybe I'll have to start writing about hairy cysty ashes and combine them in one hub...that will go viral.
So here it is: I woke up this morning in a rut looked at my lady sleeping and hot Her gentle snoring tightened my gut when I noticed it was coming from her butt I gently rolled her on her back to silence the sound of her butt crack Then I noticed the pungent smell that grabbed my face and rang my bell Whatever she'd eaten the night before found its way out through her back door I racked my brain and found a cork now she thinks I'm a perverted dork I am
Ha ha, I wasn't aware of the previous thread but now all is revealed. It seems that Google is responsible for the pus related hub. Never has one backside had so many click throughs or whatever the appropriate term is!
I have lost faith in Google because of those photos. I have had to cover up parts of art work from the great Masters of the past - I had ads taken off some hubs because HP told me "Google does not like certain body parts showing", so I spray painted those parts on all my Psyche and Eros paintings. LOL I guess Google thinks the butt hubs are "kick arse"!
I agree Phyllis. I have had ads disabled on three of my hubs with images a lot less offensive, and I wish there was some sort of consistency here as I notice these offensive "recommended" hubs have ads enabled.
Me too, Jodah. There really should be some consistency. It seems it is HP who has an issue with the human body.
I have nothing against beauty of the body in fine arts - but, I see those butt hubs as an inappropriate way to show off someone's back side. I have not read the hubs, but I believe they could have been published without those pics.
The hubs do generate a lot of attention, don't they?
In retrospect, I feel I'm behind on this end. I feel as though I've been butted to the rear in my topic selection. If only I'd had the hindsight to search to the very bottom of possible keywords, my traffic may have been butter...I mean, better.
I didn't see this tread until after I posted mine about the inappropriate google ads. Glad to see others feel the same and that these aren't helping promote the articles. I hope Hub Pages will take care of this asap.
i've mentioned this before, but i just checked my 84 articles and a huge number of them have ads for 'filipina girls', 'sexy singles', etc. my articles are about gradening, food, travel and family topics - there...

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...
Thank you hubpages for having a brilliant system that alerts me when some chuffing thieves rip off my content. And for providing me with a copy/paste DMCA notice to send the thieving toerags.I've just got to find...
