I've been advised that my article about killers who kill again
offends the delicate sensibilities of the Google bot that determines content that is unsuitable for advertisers.
I have zero knowledge about what puts the hearts aflutter at the big G and sends them reaching for the smelling salts. I would appreciate the advice of those steeped in Google lore so I can the ads back and earn, in 24 months, enough for a cup of coffee.
I have a page concerning the reasons that people commit murder. It had ads briefly but not for the last 3 years. I have never tried to rid it of words that might upset Google. I just wrote it out of interest.
I think its as much as the fact that the word serial killers or whatever don't really produce good adverts. like say, 'buy a good killer, get one free'! and so on! no adverts fit into the wording! lol!

Odd as I've written several Hubs about notorious and not so notorious murders that have been put on niche sites. Perhaps, I should keep quiet about that.

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different scenario's to me so that I can better judge and understand which option is better for...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...
