I am brand new to Hubpages, and am working on the Hubchallenge but do have a question regarding ad alignment.
I do a fairly good job with choosing keywords and optimizing them to obtain ads that are associated with the topics I am writing about. However, I have noticed that even with some of my Hubs being up for several days the displayed adsense is completely wrong for my keywords. I have looked at optimized articles by other authors and thier displayed ads are "wrong" as well.
Is this common on Hubpages? I am assuming it is a lot harder to make money with unrelated ads showing on your hubs.
Thanks for the help in advance!
Since google is now serving interest based ads - you may well be seeing ads based on your browsing history.
Hey Marie! Thanks for the post and good luck with the HubChallenge!
I just took a look at one of your latest Hubs about dog clothing that was published 2 days ago and it looks like the Hub is showing relevant ads now >>
I know that it sometimes takes a little bit of time for them to optimize, but it shouldn't take any longer than 24 hours to show ads like these.
If you have any other questions, please let us know!
It takes a little while for relevant ads to appear. Have they been up for more than a couple of days?
@ Mark - I didn't know that ads were being displayed based on browsing history now. Thats a good bit of trivia to know
@Ryan - It must have taken a bit of time for the ads to align properly. When I checked all of them were off and may have been due to my browsing history as well.

I joined Google AdSense a couple of days ago. Google is putting up ads in my hubs. But some of the ads are not matching the content of the hub, and neither do they match my interests.How do I get rid of these ads and put up better ones there? I would like to choose the ads that I want to put up....

Are you in the midst of a Hub Challenge? Fantastic! Should you like to share the Hubs you have published as you continue along on your epic journey, share them here. Please do not post Hub links in other threads or start a new thread for individual Hubs. That makes things messy, and makes it harder...

I didn't change anything, but the last 2 hubs I made I am getting ads that don't come anywhere near what I wrote about....is this normal? Can I change it?

Have any of you found detestable ads on your hubs? It is a "game" with girls in bras...how distasteful I want it off my hub...do you know if we have a say in this? It has nothing to do with my poem and is disgusting to me.

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...
