Dear HubPages staff,
I have an article published recently here.
In the article, there appears an ad for some container...
It has no connection to the subject matter of my article.
When I click on the response to specify it is “inappropriate”
The same ad keep showing up. How come?
Here is a screen shot of the ad.
I tried various responses and none seems to work. I keep seeing the same ads over and over again. It is almost like this system is broken or not working as intended. Hence my posting here.
That is not my terminology.
The options are:
1. ad covered content.
2. ad seen multiple times.
3. Ad not interested seeing.
4. Ad inappropriate.
Here is the screen shot of the flag options...
Ads do not have to be relevant to the page. So that is not considered to make them "inappropriate".
Ads differ according to the person viewing the article. When I click on your article I see an ad for a local, to me, insurance broker and another for someone selling what appears to be a telemarketing service.
Why an algorithm somewhere thinks the latter is relevant to me is a mystery.
I think we must be relevant when linking an ad, but Adsense might be as irrelevant as they wish. What is relevant is making money.

I'm taken aback by some of the interesting articles I have been reading here on HP and the niche sites. They are well-written evergreen articles that are very relevant in terms of content and topic, but I'm reluctant in engaging with them. When I see articles written from 3, 4, 5 years ago and...

A couple of days ago I get an email from HubPages saying my hub had been reviewed and it was fine. This hub was moved to a niche site 2 weeks earlier. Why was it reviewed again. Are hubs chosen for review at random. I think this is the first time I got this kind of email.

I keep getting so many no paying ads and no paying clicks. From ads not even relevant to the content.After publishing my hubs or blog post I always see if my ads are relevant. If not I tweak the content and check category. I also notice these no paying ads are in better ad spots...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...
