    I haven't written anything on here in a long time. Mostly, because I never made enough revenue. Recently, I've created several serial killer articles starting from a victim's perspective before getting into details about the actual serial killer. There's nothing x-rated in these, but you know there's obviously mentions of death and hacking apart with axes or poisoning. Would I generate ad revenue or would it be blocked because of this content? I'm trying to decide whether to publish them here or create my own website.

    Thanks in advance!

      Not sure if that content would be restricted for ads. I wrote one article about two murderers that I had met in person. It is published, but I decided it should not have ads. It didn’t seem right to me, but it was a personal decision.

    That is a good question. I know HP writers experienced Google blocking ads for sensitive topics.  I am sure Google address that issue on their site.  You could go to their site and find out their policy on sensitive material.

      I'll have to look for their policy.  Google has blocked ads on my article about pussy willows.  I assume it's the word "pussy" that is the problem.  Unfortunately, it's the best known name for the plant and the one that most people would be searching on.

        Oh, goodness. I hadn't thought about that kind of a problem! I hope they figure out their mistake and put them back. I'm sorry, that must be frustrating.

    I see ads at the moment, we'll see if they stay up or not. I'm guessing there is no niche site for true crime to be featured on? I probably should focus on other topics if there isn't.

      I'm sure it is a subject of interest,  but I think focus on other topics is a good idea. Leave them there, but check on how things are going...

        One got moved to Soapboxie, but I ended up wanting to write about other things anyhow. I feel that when I focus on crime, it makes me feel gloomy if that makes sense. So I wrote about dogs instead. It was a nice change. smile
