I have a hub on Gospel Music and the related hubs are about viagra, bikinis and sexy walpapers that I do not approve of. They have nothing to do with my hub title or content. Infact it don't even have anything to do with anything I write.
What can I do about this? If readers want to see that stuff they know where to find it, it should not be inbedded in other topics that don't relate to it.
I tried changing tags and titles, but it hasn't changed the related hubs. PLEASE help!!!!!!!!! :mad
I can understand. About half of my hubs are religious themed, but with the last name Lopez, when you go to my profile all of the ads are about JLo's butt or sexy pictures of her. Anybody else have any ideas?
You could write to her and ask her to change her name
You might try adding a little more text to your profile description. That will give the google's contextual engine a little more information to go on.
Ooh, I see what you mean. Look on the bright side though - the Related Hubs won't appeal to the people who like your Hub, so they won't be tempted away from it.
I still get confused sometimes - I want to read more Hubs by that Hubber, and I click on the Related Hubs instead of the "more by" button (which is, you must admit, not all that obvious - but you'd think I'd have learned by now!). By the time I've got sidetracked looking at other Hubs, I may not ever get back to that original Hubber.
So you see, if there are other readers like me, it could actually be a good thing to have Unrelated Related Hubs!
I know that creating groups help to display other articles by the same author, but I think that option is too far down on the page.I think It should somehow show up right after the article. And then of course, the author has to have chosen that option.
If you want to view more by that author, you can click on that option and then select the tag you're interested in, but only 3 tags show and sometimes they are not the topic you are looking for. If there was some way to do display more tags or something, that'd be great.
One of the other forum threads mentions adding a floating bar - or something like that - but I do think that would be good and these are some of the additional features that could be added to it.
The related hubs are based primarily on the tags. Since we don't have much in the gospel area, it's picking up matches from the entertainment and music tags. If you can locate some better matching hubs on HubPages, you could try adding some tags that appear on them to your hub (unfortunately they won't update instantly, it may take a day or two).
If you notice that some of the matching hubs aren't accurately tagged, you can flag them as "deceptively tagged or titled" and we'll look into it.
I had the same problem with Beyonce Knowles when I first started, but as I got more hubs and tagged them well, it went away
I didn't realise that hooking up for a date with Lopez and Knowles would turn out to be this easy
You people, Peter and Lopez are very kind. You don't want to disappoint millions who come looking for drooly stuff.
Singing Mommy, if you sacrifice your 'entertainment' tag, you won't get those related hubs. You, too, must be a kind soul like those nice gentlemen.
Well, with a last name "Hicks" I am really glad that I don't have denture ads, or what-have-you. :-) Actually, although my profile doesn't reveal it, I suffer from diabetes and I've written a few Hubs about the topic. So, now I have ads related to diabetes on my profile page. It didn't take long. I've only published 9 hubs, two of which are on diabetes.
I just checked out your profile page, and no sign of J-Lo. Looks like you have appropriate ads related to your recent Hubs. Someone must have tipped off Marc Anthony....

The new layout explodes the prominence of the related hubs images down the right side of the page. This image appears before all the ads, apart from the Google adsense ad above the title. Related hubs get an absolutely free ride aboard all the articles that attract hits from search engines through...

Why are Hubs with obviously unrelated subject matter put in the sidebar by HP? Is it done by some computer software method that needs some fine tuning? For example: what does an article on a vehicle for sale have to do with an article on election statistics? There are...

I just looked at my polio hub, which has "infectious disease", "polio" and "world health" as tags. Related Hubs displayed include two that are related. One might be related, if you're a sick chicken. Another one is a recent history of Myanmar. The others are computer...
