Okay guys I am not sure what is going on... I understood a slow month or two because of the holidays... Unfortunately, I have never recovered and my views for the day are the worst they have been ever since I started Hubpages...
I have received several warnings as well from Google, about AdSense policies and showing pictures that are against the rules. I had pictures of moles and that was it. I had to resubmit it for a review but then I received another one from Google, and that was for a picture of my dog's tail that had a hotspot on it..
I actually received another AdSense policy warning; I don't even remember which article it was for.
I had to remove pictures, which was utterly stupid. First of all, the pictures were not offensive and they did not show anything grotesque. Also, pictures are a necessity when you're talking about what something looks like.
I've had these articles up for a very very long time. So has anyone else also been receiving warnings about policy from Google? Not going to say that my articles are awesome, but I do put my heart and soul into my ability. And I've had over a 70% drop in traffic
Poor to bad to cr*p traffic for anyone writing serious or semi-serious articles. But hang in there...
Not sure why I said that. Oh, I remember. There was a fix a long, long time ago, in another galaxy.
Check the details on your Adsense dashboard under settings and "policy centre". This usually gives more info about what exactly caused the warning.
Yes, I did and they were from three articles that I have here and like I said previously, one was for a hot spot on my dog's tail, another one was for pictures of cancerous moles...? I have no clue why those were considered a violation. So I removed the bigger picture of the cancer mole and I put a text box over my dog's tail where you can see where it was a little bit of blood
That's really weird.
I haven't had anything like that and traffic has more or less back to normal.
Try asking Samantha Cubbison to take a look at your account and articles.
Nothing on my end, I wonder how Google feels about the other aforementioned unseemingly recommended articles on other Hubber pages.
This is a long shot, but go to AdSense and then click "sites" from the menu. If there are any sites listed where you know you don't have any articles, I'd remove them.
Also, on sites listed where you do have articles, hover the tiny "i". The bubble that shows up has a link to the policy center and promises to describe in detail any violations.
I was wondering if the adsense issue was just me. I got this
"In the last 24 hours:
New violations were detected. As a result, ad serving has been restricted or disabled on pages where these violations of the AdSense Program Policies were found. To resolve the issues, you can either remove the violating content and request a review, or remove the ad code from the violating pages."
It was an article about Eczema. I of course resubmitted and they found no violations.
Traffic isn't much of an issue for me mostly. A tad lower than normal, but nothing worry level.
I had the same notification. It turned out photos of red skin were considered "shocking content". As far as I understand, photos are interpreted by AI and sometimes AI gets it wrong and sees what isn't there. So possibly resubmitting, results in a human taking a look and giving the all clear.
Same...read previous reply.. I even contacted hubpages support and they had no clue and they told me to contact AdSense so I went to the Google support forums and still waiting to hear back. I had to remove pictures and resubmit and my pictures were not disgusting or vulgar at all like they said they are. And when I resubmitted, they said it was fine so I don't know
Yup! Received 3 of them! Had a picture of a hot spot on my dog's tail that caused the violation, picture of cancer moles and I also got a policy violation! I had to remove the pictures and resubmit! Had to put a big text box over my dog's tail, I don't get it!
Besides that, I have a lot of warnings that say need to verify and review for authorized sites? They are all Google.co. , .ca or .in or .uk which are Google search engines in other countries; there is no way for me to verify that I own these. Have had them listed for 10 years because Google said to add them to list so if ads appeared in other countries, I could get the earnings from any ads. Now, they are making me verify and there is no way to do that with an ad code that they are requesting.
Beginning to look like Google is on a rampage and/or they got themselves a bunch of new hires.
I put the "shocking photos" on their support forum and shortly afterwards, the violation disappeared from the policy centre.
You seem to know quite a bit. Is this something new that they're doing? Also, if you don't mind helping me with another problem... I have a lot of "need review," and "needs attention" on the global Google search engines in authorized sites. Says that I'm losing revenue and need to verify and/or add subdomain to prove ownership.
I've had AdSense for 14 years and I had to add them to list of authorized sites in order to earn revenue from Google.
I get the same recommendations from Adsense. We can't verify HubPages sites, because code needs to be added to a site to do so. Other than being able to use Google Search Console, previously known as Webmaster Tools, I don't know what advantage there would be in being able to do so.
Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about... I may not have explained it correctly but this is what I am getting... Like I said, I've had AdSense for 11 to 14 years or so. If I did not, then if my website or article showed up another country's, I would not get any earnings I guess. That's what they had me do when I first started. My articles are almost null and void as I'm making under $0.50 a day and I'm about ready to pull my hair out
Mine has picked up some but still not like it used to be pre panda … ahhhh, the memories
If you're using the HubPages Earnings Program, AdSense earnings will likely be very low because there's only one ad displayed at the bottom of the page and I think another half way down on the right.

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...
