Sunday evening Greetings!! William and I were wondering if there is a way to change the automatically installed Google ads on our Hubs if we do not think they are appropriate?? I thought that was possible but I can't seem to find it!! Thank you!! Blessings, Earth Angel!!
No, there is no way to change the ads that are shown. Google matches those ads to the subject of your hub, but there matching is primarily keyword based -- they can't understand the subtle nuance of your writing. This can lead to some strange juxtapositions, and sometimes they will place ads that just aren't appropriate. Of course this happens in the real world sometimes too.
If you're hub is not commercial, you can turn the ad level setting to low or none.
I just went through my hubs to update them, where appropriate.

I noticed that the square block of ad usually seen at the top of the hub (when you don't use a photo or any capsule aligned to the right) is now gone. I haven't touched my hubs for quite a long time and I'm wondering if this is a recent change. I actually like the change because the less ads, the...
