I put "none" on the ads for a hub. Is that going to make for a lower hubscore ranking because Google hates me for not participating in the revenue game?
Ty. Then I will leave it. Hubs look so nice and clean without that stuff.
I go back and forth on that. It actually does seem to affect hubscore, but I am aware that it is not supposed to.
I agree Hubs look much 'cleaner' without ads, particularly for poetry.
Ok, this hub is down into the 30's now. I'm not sure I'm convinced that Google doesn't show some hate to people who don't "play ball."
I mean, if that is the reason, I just need to know. I'll turn the ads back on. I don't want to, but I will if it's going to make my hub sink like an anchor. I was just kind of hoping that the other 50 hubs that generate plenty of hits would be enough to allow for ONE hub to not be smeared with commercial excrement.
Maybe it's just a glitch, but sure having a hard time thinking so given this is the only hub I've ever had do that, ever (and the only one I've ever turned off ads). Be a heck of a coincidence.
How much has your traffic dropped?
All things being equal, Google index and rank pages according to uniqueness and usefulness. Google the Search Engine doesn't care whether a page has Adsense ads on it or not. Wikipedia has no ads and dominates a lot of keyword searches.
Google has no say in the HubScore. That's all to do with HubPages. Which hub is it? It's strange that it's down in the 30's but it won't be because of Google SERPS or Google Adsense.
I had two plummet yesterday, one to 36, for no apparent reason. Thinking it's some kind of temporary glitch, rather than the ads deal.
It's definitely broken/glitched or something. It's still showing only 22 page views, which it's been showing since yesterday morning, despite 48 or something comments.

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

I don't often moan but even I am getting a bit fed up of the 'waiting' period. I thought it was 24 hours? I have recently published a hub that, by the time the ads come up, everybody who is going to read it has read it, in other words any chance of ad clicks has disappeared. Please can you either...

I've been here almost 3 yrs and would like an honest evaluation of some of my hubs. I'm concerned about my low hubscore. I continually study hubs at the learning center, participate in forums, comment on hubs, re-title and revise hubs, and have reached over 300,000 page views. I...

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

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...
