Has anyone had their advertising turned off by automatic filters?
The advertising on my exclusive titled hub has been turned off. I am assuming it is because the article is about how to help a person who Cuts or self injures. Any one have this happen to them?
My advertising was turned of on a hub I wrote about child abuse. It was said not to be in keeping with the desirers of the partners of HP.
Thanks Ghaelach, child abuse is a sensitive subject also, it is a shame though that people are censored for thoughtful articles on these subjects. So they never turned it back on?
Published on 01-21-12 and edited twice, but still no advertising.
Very interesting. Thanks for your answer Ghaelach.
Since I'm here just for fun, I really don't pay any attention to if the advertising is turned off or not. However since the option is now available on questions, I've been disabling all of the advertising myself when I ask a question. It keeps everything so much simpler. Keep on hubbing
I wrote an article about America's fear of sex and nudity and you can bet they disabled the ads on that one pretty quick. I like to think it's a perfectly legitimate article, but because I said a lot of 'red flag' words, there was no way it was ever going to get approved. Though, I do think it's funny, because they proved my point that the mainstream is terrified of discussing the subject.
Yes, I have eHealer. The reason is the agreement between the business entities regarding their separate Terms of Service. You will have to take a peek at the Learning Center or write a courteous email to hubpages. Their staff members answered that question for me with a hub I have. I felt it was more important to get the message out in an non-commercial manner after reviewing the business entities TOS I had access to - Ebay & Amazon. Since the Google and Choice ads are randomly selected advertisers I presume the TOS for Google Adsense and Hubpages Program would the source for those.
To make a hub non-commercial follow these steps:
Click on Edit -> click on settings at the right below where it says Convert to Video -> deselect the box This Hub May Be Considered Commercial -> and then set the Ad level to None.
I don't remember the guideline criteria for that regarding links to profit orientated businesses and such. The learning center probably has that answer.
Let us know how it turns out
Great article by the way. I hope to go back and comment, but I am in a writing mood, so I am not commenting being afraid I will wander being stuck in 'theta' now.
Yes, I have a Hub right now about child abuse that the advertising has been disallowed. It went for months with advertising and then one day I had a message that the ads would no longer be excepted.
Yep on my Anorexia Nervosa hub the ads were turned off but only after I did some minor tweaking. When I orginally posted it it slid past the filters I guess. Either way I sent them an email and they explained it to me as they are a small team and the must have filters of some sort to keep Hubpages integrity. They did however turn the ads back on and mentioned that should I ever "tweak" that hub again most likely the same thing will happen again......they mentioned I could then write them again and they will turn them back on manually.
No more tweaking that article for me for a while it's a PITA.
Several of my sex-related Hubs have had advertising turned off, even though they're written from a clinical and advice point of view. Ironically, they also tend to get the most views!
