    Damn, only 5!

    I was going to ask, which ones are typically higher in CPC value but checking out the page https://www.google.com/adsense/site-targeted-ad-review it shows how much percent of your Recent Ad Impressions AND your Recent Earnings have been from those ads.

      Yes darkside this is a very useful option. And for me it shows more earnings from politics and religions ads. Funny, but, i think it is the reality.

    You can only refuse ads on your own account, I have tried to block certain sites from advertising on my hubs, but it only leads to a blockage on the domains you own,  I think the ads served on our hubs are served from adsense through hubpages so even if you have filters on your account it will not matter.

      I wouldn't have expected it to work any other way.

      The filters will work on your own account. It won't affect the other 40% of ad impressions.

    So did you guys click any of the categories to block them? Just curious to see if that's worth it or if it might weed out some of the good ads with the bad ones...

    If google is able to get the data of earnings for each category of ads, then hopefully it should be able to block them also.

    If it works in hubpages, we can see that the recent earnings and ad impressions percentage in adsense account will gradually decrease for blocked categories.
