    What do you do when ads are disabled on your hubs?

    I have published a hub on Exclusive Title. It gets 10 views per day in average. However, ads are disabled on the hub. I wrote to HubPages to reinstate ads, however, it rejected saying the hub will remain featured but cannot display ads because of sexual content. The nature of the hub does not allow me to sell ebay or amazon products. If I don’t earn a cent, what is the point in letting it remain published.

    When you write online you need lots of content, even if you don't earn anything from this one Hub it is still more work to put to your name and you might get a few followers from it who might view and share your other content.

    Vinaya....I share your curiosity and frustration.  Many months ago, I had this happen to me, in terms of disabled ads, on a hub.  According to HP, it was due to "graphic content," related to a murder.....(?)   Well, the murder was an integral part of the entire story.  HP states that if we "change and/or correct" the issue, to advise them of this and they will re-evaluate the hub.
    I did ALL of that, Vinaya, but to no avail.  Ads were never enabled and what is worse, I never received any further comment or explanation from HP, despite having contacted them twice more, about this issue!
    I don't like to think about the money I am missing, because this one particular hub is my MOST read, leading all others by a landslide......and continues to be a much visited hub.  VERY upsetting and frustrating.  Especially because I feel HP did not handle the situation properly or with courtesy.   To not give me feed back, after I went to the trouble of complying with the rules, is inexcusable.
    I understand how you feel........

    I really do not worry about. I mean it is just one hub. It is not going to make a difference in your earnings, especially if it is only getting 10 views per day.

    That is an interesting question, Vinaya, as I am working on a hub of a nature that is not my norm.  It is about men and sexual health, and for the first time (not published yet) it said my ads are disabled for further review, but once I publish it, my hub will still be published so long as I do not have any links, I guess directing someone to use a particular doctor for this medical condition that affects men.  So, I am making sure I do not have any links.  I have been a member of HP for over a year since March 31, 2012, but just signed up to earn in May of this year.  That is the first time is warned me.  I understand how concerned you are, as you write to earn, but for me, it is not as important to earn money or not, but maybe help someone who may have such issue.  Good question.

    It is frustrating. My most trafficked Hub has ads disabled. It is a true account of a child abuse case. I just let it go because I believe the subject needs to be known. This Hub has received over 22,000 views so obviously people are interested. That may well be the case for you. If you believe in your subject leave the Hub published. The greater good is more important than money.

    Good question. I got that once myself on when I simply had Tantra and Ecofeminism in the title and there was no sexual content in the blog itself. Tantra is a philosophy and I wanted to dwell on that aspect and not the sexual aspect and still they thought it was sexual in nature. I do my blogs as a public service and do not want money for them, but you do have a good point. Hub pages does put restrictions on people some times that do not always make sense. Sometimes I want to be more creative and personal and they do not always like that.

    Their house...their rules.

    Since your purpose in writing the article is to earn money, I would unpublish it, wait til it's de-indexed, and then republish it elsewhere.  That's what I would do too, since I'm online to earn money too.

    Perhaps you can use it if it is well read to direct readers to other hubs which would serve some purpose. When they decide to do something like this you won't ever get any clear cut answers, believe me.

    Like other hubbers here Vinaya I have had two hubs where ads were disabled - one was in relation to women wearing bras that may increase their chances of breast cancer, and due to the 'content filters' the ads were disabled. I would have thought that in this day and age surely there is some way to discern between informative hubs and pornography.  My other hub was about famous murderers who had poisened their victims and I gave a description of the plants where the poisons were derived, this hub had ads for about a year and was then suddenly deemed to be one where ads would have to be disabled.

    Personally, as frustrating and incomprehensible as it is, I choose to continue to write what I want and to hell with the ads.

    Hi Vinaya,
    I've had this happen to me on a few hubs that were on "sensitive" topics such as domestic violence and suicide. I chose to keep those hubs up because I felt the information they contained was worthwhile in a public health sense because I had posted links to helpful resources for the prevention of domestic violence and suicide and I was also trying to increase public awareness about these issues.
    I admit that I was surprised when the ads got disabled, but another hubber told me that since ads are computer generated, hubs that have references to domestic violence, sex and suicide routinely have the ads disabled to prevent inappropriate ads being displayed. For instance, my hub about veterans committing suicide by shooting themselves might have triggered gun sale ads which would have been inappropriate for the content of that hub.
    If you have somewhere else that you could publish your own hub where you could profit from it, then I would suggest unpublishing it from HubPages.
