Thought I would share this one. I tagged one of my hubs:
http://hubpages.com/hub/When-will-the-r … bottom-out
with the tag "luxury goods" as I was talking about how the real estate bubble blew up the luxury goods bubble. This resulted in some very inappropriate google ads for expensive shoes all over the place. I have now removed that tag, the shoe ads are gone and I now have appropriate ads.
buggar mark the shoe adds are the only ones I click on..
You deserve to be served on Vanila Ice Cream
or Pavlova (or that still ours?) lol
Walmarts gotta special on Kiwi-fruit and shoes Im in like Flyn ( grins)
Mark youre gonna be sorry you missed out on the new crocs lol, tell you what ( im feeling generous)Ill grab the two for $4 deal then the tan ones for you.
I only buy new shoes when my wife makes me throw away my comfortable ones.
I often wonder about that myself how do I get dating ads on a Hub that has nothing to do with the content or attract people with pervy keywords? I am like...ewwww lol
As they are Hubs for Q & A ...would that have a difference?
I don't know - but I would look at your tags and see what might be causing it. It may just be that google was unable to supply appropriate ads and uses default ads. Which I guess at the moment seem to be about "marrying Indian girls" or "Dating Muslim girls" lol
Mark are you saying that you were able to ID the tag becz you had used it in only that article?
I am so new at learning about tags, I will have to check them out lol
Are tags really important to Google? I thought Google uses the entire content of your hub.
What I believe to be true is if I use similar tags to your hub, my hub will be grouped as similar to yours and your readers will be as good as mine. The opposite is also true.
Tags on hubpages are actually outbound links with the anchor text of the tag, so it will be weighted more than the normal text on the page, something like a header tag.
Thanks for sharing this Mark. Irrelevant really minimize affects the earning potential of a hubpage negatively.
you need to always make you tags relevant and not to far away from the truth. make a hub about dogs and then add cats as a tag you will get a mix of dog ads and cat ads.
Though i just wrote about importance of tagging in my Part 3 Series about hubpages
I think the Value of tagging is a real good hub about the topic
A read good job by the author
Hope that helps

What's the difference between keywords and tags?This is a question only a newbie to computers would ask, I'm sure, but I bought my very first computer a little over a year ago and hope you could write a hub-or an email-about this. I've looked at some answers given by other hubbers and am...

I have recently seen some posts indicating that a person can get in real trouble with HP for excessive/irrelevant tags. Even when the only tags you used were the ones suggested by the suggestion tool. In as much as most search engines ignore them anyway, why take the risk? So I have declared this...
