    What causes ads to be disabled due to automatic content filters?

    I am writing a hub on the Booty Pop... it is a sarcastic review. I am still working on it but I got the message that the ads have been disabled? It is a review for an actual product but would the word Booty cause the article to be flagged? I don't want to put my hubpages account in hot water?

    There are some 'stop words' as far as adsense ads are concerned. Google "stop words for adsense" for some suggestions.

    The FAQ has an extensive entry on just what causes HubPages to turn off ads,

    I would just move that hub to blogger, and I've never seen anything that would disable ads on blogger.  Google owns that site, you know.

    I've had similar issues before, but I'd spend inordinate amounts of time trying to make things comply. . . .and that was a waste of my time.  Each time that has happened, I just moved it to blogger, and monetized it there, and that ended my problem.

    Just to be devious, however, I might bring some of the same one's back later on, just to see what happens.  Sometimes staff gets all pissy about things that I can hardly believe, like . . . .something being slightly mis categorized, or one tag that they don't like, etc.

    You can also "sanitize" your work for hubpages, and then link to your original one off site via the link capsule.

    I am new to hubpages but one of the things that appeal to me about this site is they really try to keep the quality of the hubs High.

    Even though I think the word booty is not offensive. the subject might be to some. Its not a Militant forum for free speech in which nothing is out of bounds. That is what I like about Hub-pages.

    Yep, according to the FAQ I think it is the word "booty".


    In partnership with our advertising partners, we've identified below some areas that are not suitable for advertising but that, at our discretion, we may allow to remain published without ads:

        * Reproductive medical content (including vaginal and penile issues and sexually transmitted diseases)
        * Content about sexuality, including losing your virginity, fetish, or LGBT issues
        * Content about abortion, circumcision, genital mutilation, rape, incest, pedophilia, and molestation
        * Content describing violent crimes or gruesome accidents
        * Lewd or profane humor, including provocative double entendre
        * Restrained journalistic or fine art nudity

    If the content of your Hub falls into one of these areas, please set the Ad Level to 'None'. If you have specific questions, please contact us.

    I wrote an article with the word 'breast' and its ads are also disabled, it may be the same case.

    The word Booty, was probably the trigger.
    I wrote about domestic violence (including a graphic description which was directly pertinent) and my ads were disabled. However, I was allowed to keep the hub published without any changes in content or wording, by setting the Ad level to "None." That was fine with me because I just wanted to keep the hub published as it had important resources listed for those who may currently be experiencing domestic violence.

    I posted some movie quotes and one quote had the word "sex" in it and the other word in a different quote was "panties".  Could be both maybe.
    These quotes weren't even graphic or anything.  Whatever!
    Amazon and Adsense were disabled.
