I had my latest hub pulled after it had been published for 10 days. The only explanation Hubpages gives is Deceptive Title, Tags or category. Here's my e-mail to Hubpages...see if you agree.
After 10 days, over 3000 page views, 240+ comments and being as high as #4 on your hot hubs page someone has had the wisdom to unpublish my hub. I would have understood if it had happened the first day or two.....but 10 days in??? Actually the problem I have is that you pull hubs without specifically stating a concrete reason. It says deceptive Title, Tags or Category......well which is it? Seems to me that since you have all our e-mail addresses on file you (whoever did this) could just as easily send an e-mail stating the reason a hub was pulled. You don't like my title??? I can change it....you want to suggest changes....no problem. Problem with the tags??? Too many.... not enough....what do you find deceptive???? Category wrong??? Well I didn't see a category that fit better. Maybe you could do a better job of clarifying!!
I see a few of your topics skirting on the edge of what Adsense would find acceptable. Did you perhaps cross that line a wee little bit?
What was your title?
Whilst none of your hubs would offend me personally, in terms of the Google Adsense TOS which I believe all Hubs have to conform to, I'd say that 'skirting on the edge' is Darkside being kind and putting it mildly, sorry.
Like I said they don't offend me personally, I loves me some smut, but the first couple that caught my eye, phone sex etc, I'm pretty sure they're probably TOS breakers.
* I don't know whether you use Adsense or not, but having refreshed a few of your hubs several times it doesn't look like your ads are showing anyway, just HPs non-Adsense sponsored ads, which means you won't be making any money from them anyway. (if making money was your intention.)
Agree with darkside and Mrvoodoo. What do HP's non-Adsense ads look like anyway? I saw Google ads on his hubs... or so I thought.
They look very similar but don't say 'Ads by Google' underneath, they say something like 'sponsored ads' or 'sponsored links'.
These show up either during HPs share of impressions or when a Hub is of a topic that does not comply with the Adsense TOS (or at least this is my belief, could be wrong).
I also observe that, I think the ads showing sponsored link are HPs. Another way to check that the ads are yours are Hubs is that. You right click on to the adsense ad unit of your hub and search for your pub-ID.
Reading the help section before writing your first hub will ensure you never have a hub pulled.

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...

At the bottom of the lens it has related hubs. Is there a way to exclude some hubs from showing there, or to encourage better (more related) ones by limiting the category or using keywords or hand picking them or something?For example, my lens on a simple wooden toy is getting horror movies...

I have been a member of Hubpages for 6 weeks now, and only made 32 cents through adsense - I have 18 hubs, with pretty good keywords. Does anyone have any suggestions to increase my adsense earnings? I am pretty new to this.

I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe implement a cap on questions ie 3-5 per day as long as they are not spammy. ...
