Do you use Google´s Competitive Ad Filter to block specific ads from appearing on your pages?
What is your experience with the Competitive Ad Filter (if you use it)?
No I do not use competitive ad filter. If you filter out the ads you receive, then you only receive lower quality clicks. Google provides the best paying advertisers for your hubs. If you feel those ads are not good enough for the content on your page, then by all means use the filter. Some people use them and some people do not use them. It is a personal preference, because of specific keywords bring about different results.
I tuned my ads using the competitive filter as there are some topics or companies I don't want advertised on my pages. I didn't find I had a loss of earnings from this.
However, remember that during the 40% of the time when the HubPages' AdSense ID is affiliated with your Hubs, your ad preferences aren't going to be in effect, so during those times, you might see ads for things you have otherwise blocked.

Ads are appearing on all of my Hubs but one, and for the life of me I can't figure out why. It's probably something obvious to everyone but me. Thanks for any help you can give me.
