I'm fairly angry at the moment. I worked very hard on this page, and I can't for the life of me imagine why ads were disabled.
You'd think someone would have the courtesy to send an email or something. But that hasn't happened.
I've sure published a lot of pages about guitars on this website. I'm blown away someone found a reason to disable ads and ....expects me to just guess what that reason was.

You do say damned in it. Try removing the swear word? The only other thing I can think of is they might think humbucker is a rude word?
Le sigh. I can sure remove the 'damned.' But one of those on a page that long would seem to add authenticity. At least to me. Because that's how people often speak, of course.
Holy shiznits, if someone thinks 'humbucker' is an obscenity, that's amazing. And can't be fixed. Literally, the only other term for it is 'humbucking.' The article would be stupid were it to say 'hum-canceling,' because absolutely no one ever describes those devices that way.
You still have the amazon adds on the hub was it just the Adsense that were disabled?
I'd say an email to the team is needed. I'd never heard of humbucking and it did sound vaguely rude at first reading to me, so maybe someone was lazy when they read it.
Not sure if this is right but it was my impression from reading: The HP team said some time back that if a hub was full of ads there were less Amazon sales. If many Amazon ads the HP ads should be cut out. Maybe since this hub has a lot of helpful Amazon ads they decided to cut the HP/Google ads out so that you would have more Amazon sales. (The amount of income that you would lose from HP ads being displayed is miniscule in comparison to one guitar sale.)
I certainly do not think it is because of the damned or humbucking.
I'm really sorry. I'm guessing this was our mistake, and I re-enabled ads. I will reach out to the person that turned off the ads to make sure and will let you know if I hear something new. Thanks for posting.
Great Hub on some of more overlooked Tele's too, Wesman. You're guitar articles are well written and full of good info, fun reads for guitar junkies!
Hey Thanks man! I plan to do a lot more of them. Guitar Gopher is really good too.
I plan to buy a nice electric sometime in the not distant future. So I'm researching for myself, and basically making pages out of it.
You remember those bridge pickup covers that used to come on Telecasters long time ago? People would always take them off and use them as ashtrays. I love those things. If I buy a Tele I'm going to have that ashtray looking pickup cover put on it!
Yes Gopher is excellent as well. I wanted to possibly dabble in some guitar articles, but you guys are already doing a way better job than I so I will leave it to you guys! And the ashtray tele bridge, some swear by those for the brighter tone as well..hmm..ashtray and the different tele bridges could be a good hub Wesman!

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...

I have a hub about Suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge that was published in 2009 and has been read more than 71,000 times and another on the status of the Golden Gate Suicide Barrier that was published in 2011. Ads on both of these hubs were just disabled today (05-19-13), can anyone tell me why?...

Ads on my hub titled "Alex Kelly Rape Case: Talk About Rushing to Judgment! " have been disabled by a moderator. While I do not really care about making money on ads (I'm not even sure what ads I had on the hub) I'm puzzled about this action by HubPages because there remain two ads on my...

My new hub has had advertising automatically disabled. As far as I can tell, it does not violate Adsense policy. Who should I contact? Is it Maddie?

Are we not supposed to be notified by e-mail when we get Ads disabled on HP, or do we just happen across them as I keep doing?I had three disabled this morning and not a word from HP as to why. And it's a moderator and not a filter. It'd help a whole lot if they take the time to disable ads, they...
