I write a Hub and it is published. Within 24 hours I receive 26 comments and my score goes down. The Hub is only rated 74; how am I supposed to take this?
I also want Google ads removed from my writings since they disabled me with no discussion.
If the majority of the visitors have been HubPages readers its internal traffic, so it won't be the same quality as outside traffic.
Removing ads isn't hard. But you must fulfill the criteria of what is deemed a non-commercial hub.
Tell me how to do it. I will also write a Hub on it to inform others.
If you want to publish a hub on it you're better off figuring it out for yourself.
Harvey - as I posted on another thread.
If there were no Adsense ads on Hubs, HubPages would not exist. HubPages relies for its income on Adsense.
Disabling ads on your Hubs is therefore a self-defeating act.
I'm not asking everyone to do it. If one wishes to, I can't stop them. The people that have been unfairly disabled may wish to do this. That constitutues a small portion of Hub writers. If this is done on other sites also, Google might suffer.
It's an automated system and there's no personal aspect involved, so don't take it personally! If you want to write non commercial hubs it's quite simple. Just do as Oli explained.
I can imagine your frustration, but from my experience, I really do believe that even if countless readers within HP comment, 'external' traffic is the best way to raise that score...
Harvey, if you want to remove Google Adsense adverts from your page, then on NON COMMERCIAL pages, you can do the following.
GO to the Hub you want to change
Where it says 'Settings' at the top tehre is a box bellow it.
There are two Check boxes.
Untick 'This Hub May Be Considered Commercial'
Then go to the drop down list by Ads (Default set at High) and click None.
Click Done Editing.
And your hub should be advert free.
Remember this is only for non-commercial hubs, if you do this on commercial Hubs then you will be violating the Hubpages Terms of Service.

I am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different scenario's to me so that I can better judge and understand which option is better for...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...
