Poison words to Google

  1. SandyMcCollum profile image70
    SandyMcCollumposted 7 years ago

    I wrote a hub and published it a couple of days ago and it's very clinical in nature. I just recently learned about Google's poison words and realized I may have written something Google with think is poison-worded. Here is the hub:
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Gender-Reassignment-Surgery

    No poison words are used in the title, subtitle, subheadings, keywords, or photo titles or captions. Just in the text.

    And what will Google do? Suspend my Adsense? Should I just unpublish it?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

      Did they pull the adds off your hub? If not, then you don't need to worry. smile

        No, they didn't pull their ads but the ads had nothing to do with the content. Bollywood stars and such. I don't want to lose my Adsense account like some others have.

        I think I'll just rewrite it and see if I can still make it make sense.

      When I started a thread because I wanted to do research on blood types and beliefs it was immediately closed and It was said I was trying to promote my hub. Why is your thread, pointing to your hub allowed?

      1. Misha profile image72
        Mishaposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Probably because it was genuinely asking for help with a hub technicalities and not for help with a hub case? smile

          I genuinely created the hub to do the poll and made it noncommerical

            Nah, I was not clear enough probably. But I don't know how to say it better. Try to re-read what I said, may be it helps, or may be a native speaker will chime in with a better explanation. smile

              No - you were perfectly clear.

              She is being deliberately obtuse and prefers to pretend not to understand the difference between starting a thread to ask for help and starting a thread to get people to come to her hub - regardless of how commercial it is.

      Yes, I learned there are certain words that Google doesn't like, and when someone wrote a clinical article on areola reconstruction, it didn't like the word nipple. It was on another forum and then people began leaving other words they knew to be poison words to Google. I'll see if I can find it again and make a list to post for everyone.

    SandyMcCollumposted 7 years ago

    I got scared and unpublished the article, it was about transgender surgeries and contained descriptions with clinical terms.

    I do still want to know, what should I do? I'm thinking I'll just rewrite it somehow without the certain words.

    But what would Google do about my Adsense account? Do they give you time to fix it?

    i would think that a lot of medical sites or sites with health information would include some of these 'special' words.

    mel22posted 7 years ago

    Transgender surgery might get lots of traffic but no clicks so I wouldn't worry!

    If you write about SEO you might get paid better. Its the only category that makes money

    although Amazon products seem to do alright!

    Amazons products are the best choice 2 make any money ,IMO !

      Do you have a tool that shows the amount of clicks a topic receives ? That is  excellent i would pay a couple thousand for it!

      SEO is the only topic that makes money!...wow, the interesting part. is that is exactly the opposite of the truth..those that are familiar with SEO and other tech subjects are also familiar with adsense, therefore are adblind and never click

      What Amazon product would one buy in relationship to "transgender surgery'?

      here is a keyword for you

      prices cosmetic surgery        $10.13
      breast enlargement prices      $14.75
      laser surgery                   $10.00



      seo niche the only topic that makes money...?

    If they did not pull the ads, I don't think you need to re-write it Sandy. I would publish it again. Unrelated ads are a common place on new or low traffic hubs, no worries about that either. smile

    misha, how much money do you make off 18 hubs from google compared 2 Amazon? You must write a ton at squidoo or somewhere I suppose. My point was adsense does not pay out the best compared to amazon, IMO !

    1. Misha profile image72
      Mishaposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      From HP? About $300-500 monthly. All Adsense, almost nothing from Amazon and Ebay.

      Not a cent of that money comes from SEO niche. smile

        Whao, I could live on that. Your hubs must be very well optimised for high traffic, backlinked & all that, well, of course apart from their superior quality of  course.

    I wonder how valid that thread is,
    Correlation does not imply causation

    I have dozens of hubs and sites that are focused on plastic surgery keywords as its a saturated niche the traffic isnt wonderful but the payouts are huge,4-5 dollar clicks sometimes..

    I wouldnt feel uncomfortable publishing that topic with the included keywords under my own ID.

    Thanks, Misha and Sunforged. I did republish it and I'll wait and see if anything comes of it before I do anything else.

    Deborah, I don't know about your hubs, but I put my link in here to get help with it. You can't post your link so people will look at it, but when you want help it's a bit necessary for people to see what you're asking about. I hope that helps.

    to be 100% by the forum rules, any thread started by a hubber that is intentioned in getting views back to a hub and includes a link to the hub should be in the "extreme hub makeover" section, but I can see how "need help,ask here" would seem like the right place! smile

    adsense setup, then ad review center.... that was supposed to be sarcastic meaning the only way 2 make money is to write about making money... guy selling how to get rich quick by using get rich quick scheme... nm I guess ya missed the joke... I have NEVER written SEO but yet the highest number of ad impressions served are 'get rich Quick' on review center... but yet not a single dime as I said about dimes, nickels and pennies... as far as transgender... i still doubt that would pay no matter what you say, thats just my opinion and I still doubt mishas 18 hubs bring 300-500 month...just don't see that as more than big talk... the only one i could imagine is the verizon or game console making money with all the Vidiots online. Vidiots r a good 2 the wallet.

      Well Mel, I work full time online...or more appropriately I make a full time income online, I believe Misha does also.

      The keywords I provided you are ones that were gleaned from the hub in question. Did you understand what I showed you?

      I have around 200 hubs published, of those hubs approx 25 of them bring in 90% of my adsense income. I bet MIsha makes that 300-500, from 5 or 6 of his hubs...your next question should have been , wow, whats your weekly traffic!

      I have no idea what your intentions are with your online activities, but if you are interested in income, I suggest blathering less, never assuming and treating the occasional seed of truth as te treasure it is.

      your right the "make money online" niche is huge....but its not practical to break into for adsense, its great for information products and selling snake oil.

      Adsense is a program that can actually be pretty well predicted. You just have to learn how to look, your "opinions" show that you have not figured out how to look yet and you should probably look harder or at different places.

    Buy ( fill in the blank ) online
    Buy ( fill in the blank ) online

    Glad my generation was not in the Twitterworld of today

    I can see maybe with a personal website and driving traffic 2 it but how about HP alone.. how much really is made by HP alone... i bet most is countless hours of writing from other sites 2 drive traffic from driving traffic 2 a website... anyway i'm not really interested in that like i said its side mony.. sidepennies

    15 year old girls online don't buy stuff by clicking ads.. they mess with myspace and facebook pages.. the old generation with the money doesnt even buy online or attempt 2 get online... the next generation got lazy ,wanted 2 make money 4 nothing and don't produce nothing but clicks from a screen... alll borrowed marketing dollars from the accounts of "savers' who produced something WITH effort... the internet generation is dragging down the productivity of america and soon will destroy economical base. Thats my opinion.

    I like hubpages itwas fun 4 awhile but this fake economical  scheme by google to throw out ads 4 nothing but a click is about to fade within a few years. America dont produce nothin'

  20. sunforged profile image68
    sunforgedposted 7 years ago

    Actually, your 100% right! except for your limitation of where the money is (tech and video games) there is money in every topic, because there are advertisers in every topic

    Its disheartening when you make "sidepennies" but you learn to make "side dollars" and the dollars add up!

    Advertisers pay for those ads, they do it because when you know what your doing adwords is capable of laser targetting your customers and high conversions..it works from both ends (for a select few)

    its not the number of hubs (or sites, or blogs or lens) its the traffic generated and the conversion level of the hub.

    My very best trafficked hub gets more hits alone in one day, than all my others combined...but, its conversion rate is rather low (clicks and sales) because its not in an imminent demand/question asking topic

    but in general your right, this industry is easy...people get to hung up with gimmicks and non issues and make it easier for teh rest of us who dont

    good luck

    Well at least you realize your makin money 4 nothin, but soon that will drive the tax base sooo high on the working producers by marketers transferring wealth to google then to this 'easy money' industry that it might end up bad.  I guess I cant complain since I'm here trying to get the easy money too. good luck 2 you 2 although it sounds like ya don't need it.

    I don't write about SEO or about making money online and I earn money. Not a great amount but good for what I consider a hobby.

    I have also made most from AdSense.

    If I thought I was being exploited by Google I wouldn't be here, there are other sites that don't rely on AdSense.

      I unpublished it again, my ads are pulled. But, no emails or messages in my account, so am I ok if I just don't republish using those poison words? Or should I contact them?

      1. Maddie Ruud profile image78
        Maddie Ruudposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        We don't display ads on unpublished hubs, so if that's what you mean by "my ads were pulled," no need to worry.  If you noticed that there were no ads on it, and that's WHY you unpublished, that's another story.  I read your hub, and I don't see anything wrong with it.  Even if Google pulls ads on one of your pages, they probably will not suspend your account, but if you're worried about it you can set the ad level to "low" and utilize Amazon and EBay capsules to make revenue instead.  I'm sure there are lots of relevant books people might like to buy after reading your hub.

          Whew! Thanks, Maddie. Yes, I noticed there were no ads on it before I unpublished it. I'll just be more careful in the future. What a bummer that an institution like Google can't discern between smut and clinical terms.... geez....

            The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one. I had some Jock Sturgis photos on one of my hubs before I discovered the google anti-nipple thing. Guess that is why Playboy models have them airbrushed out. Wouldn't want to offend any one with actual body parts. wink

    I just deleted a Hub that Google refused to run ads on.
    The "poison words" appears to have been either "Kelly Kelly" or "Vixen" or both.
    I checked a few other Hubs with "Kelly Kelly" on them, and sure enough, no ads.
    She musta done something really baaaad.
    I know, "why didn't you just take out the Kelly Kelly reference?"
    Because it ruined the flow of the Hub and rather than seeing it crippled, I just got rid of it.
    So yes Virginia, there are poison words or stop words.

    If anyone is feeling brave, do a Hub and use those two words and see if Adsense will run ads.
