How can I change the language (deutsch to english) of advertisements in my hubs?
As I am living in Germany, some of the ads are in Deutsch. However, I think my articles are relevant to english speaking people and I would prefer if all advertisements are in english. Can I change the language of all ads to english?
I also live in Germany and have some of the ads in German. I suppose it's the result of behavioral targeting (the kind of targeting that uses information collected on an individual's web-browsing behavior, such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made, to select which advertisements to display to that individual). This kind of targeting can be combined with contextual targeting (based on the surrounding content), or based on other factors like geography and demographics. For example, I see a lot of heine.de ads on my HubPages because I'm a buyer there and visit their site regularly. This means that people in other parts of the world don't have to necessarily see the same ads you do (and they probably won't).
These ads are part of the Google interest-based advertising program (behavioral targeting ad program) and there's a way to opt-out by clicking the "Opt out" button on the homepage of the Ads Preferences Manager. You'll have to delete your browser's cookies regularly though (unless you download the Google advertising cookie opt-out plugin).

I'll bet this one doesn't last long-- although the hubs show a great deal of effort and interesting rhetoric.You had better go check if, before they disappearhttp://hubpages.com/profile/btbt88

I know we should report spun articles and the like, but the guidelines also warn to be careful not to report people who don't have English as their first language.However, I've come across hubs that are written by such...
