Do you find the ads very sensitive and have actually been activated while just scrolling up a hub?
It seems to me that the ads are so sensitive that one can easily be activated (for lack of a better word) while just lightly scrolling up or down a hub. As soon as I realize this has happened, I exit as quickly as I am able to do so! What surprises me is that there was no intentional clicking on the ad but just scrolling up by one. Have you found the ads to be very sensitive?
It's not the ads that are sensitive but whatever device you are using to access the web/Hubpages.
If you're using a PC or laptop there are settings that can be changed to make the mouse/mousepad less sensitive. I'd link to instructions, but they will be different depending on which operating system you're using.
I have noticed this Faith not so much at Hp and hubs as just in my email or surfing. The scroll bar I think or ads near it have become more sensitive to open. There are times I am sure I have not clicked on an ad (which of course I never do) and a page opens ups and scares me really! Til I see what it is anyway. Just a new gimmick.
Hi Jackie, thanks for answering. I just do not want to get penalized for unintentionally scrolling over an ad and it pops up when I did not click on anything.
Yes, I see now. That would be bad. Well I would leave ads off til you finish the hub, less likely afterwards maybe? I don't have that problem in hubs, strange, but maybe it is something new that will affect me. Some have been mad being accused.
Oh, it is not on a hub I am working on, but just reading other hubs and scrolling back up to the top and then and ad pops us and scares me to death! lol
Oh, ok, I see. Well I would think that would be OK, aren't we allowed to? I think so. In fact I keep meaning to go back to a couple of interest to order.
Oh no Jackie, it is against HP rules to click on any ads only outsiders. You. Can penalized or banned.
Well that sure is stupid. All these customers here and we have to turn a blind eye? I don't even write for pay, how would it benefit me? But glad you told me. Sheeee.
Guess so as to not help sll one's friends out by clic king away on ads. You should have read all about it when you signed up with HP.
Oh that was in prehistoric times, there were no rules. lol J/K
LOL, sweet funny friend. You are not prehistoric by any means. Hugs

I just de-activated my HubPages ads program and I was wondering if someone has any experience to share. Did your AdSense revenue increase after de-activating HP ads?

So I had a thought - what happens if you refer someone, whether that be to a hub or who signs up and writes, but they have HP Ads activated but you don't? Does that mean you are pretty much giving up on the referral income because you can't take the HP Ads income? Or what would happen if you had...

Has anyone had ads disabled by HP on a hub clearly not "sensitive?"I just published another in a series of flash fiction stories, only to see the symbol for "Ads Disabled." When I checked the HP administration's information about why ads may be disabled (containing...

Video ads on hubpages now? I find them annoying and intrusive do you?I was checking out a couple of my hubs today to see if they needed some attention and a blaring Wal-mart ad comes on as I am scrolling down. I find this highly intrusive on the hubs and will make people click away. Not...
