How do I control what advertisements end up on my blogs. Hub Pages is placing competitors to my
Competitors to my business on my blogs, is there any way to control who or what category you allow to be advertised on your blogs
1. Log in to your Google Adsense account.
2. Click on "Allow and Block Ads" in the topmost toolbar. It is the third of four options.
3. In the left side column, find "Advertiser URLs". Click it.
4. A box opens up in the center of the new box on the center&right of the screen. Type in the URLs you want to block.
5. Click the blue-lettered words "view our guide". This guide will tell you how to best enter the URLs to block every subdirectory from your competitors' sites.
Generally they will place ads on your hubs that go with your keywords. You don't really have control over their clients unfortunately. It is a situation that you'd have to deal with when placing hubs on hubpages.
First of all, because it is integrated with HP, i am not sure if that can be done.
You can try doing it via adsense allow and disallow ads option.
If you are referring to the Hubpage's Earnings Program, they state:
"Advertisements from the HubPages Earnings Program will appear on Your Hubs at HubPages’ discretion (and such advertisements may appear on every page load of your Hub)".
It is found here http://hubpages.com/help/user_agreement under number 9, under the Hub Pages Earnings Program section, and it's the 4th bullet point down.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of unfortunate information. If you are concerned about competitors, then perhaps starting your own website would be more advantageous?
Don't get me wrong as you could still find a way to use Hubpages in conjunction with your own website; but perhaps the hubs here then wouldn't be as affected by competitive businesses if they concentrated on your business and your services instead in hopes of directing traffic to your external site. That might be a bit taboo, but it's just a thought....
I don't know the technical details given by other responders, however I've had not only competitor ads on my hubs but outright contradictory stuff. I once had an ad for a gay marriage site.
I came to terms with this by thinking of my hubpage domain as a store in a mall. A retailor in the mall doesn't control who might be setting up shop next door. However it would be nice to be able to prevent the guy next door from putting his adds on my windows!
This has been the problem with Google and Adsense since the beginning. A company writes something engaging and helpful but the leads go to a competitor. It is the way of exploiting people's contributions. There are millions of people looking for something better than Google. Turning off the ads does not solve the problem. It simply gives more information to Adsense about who are your competitors.
