I'm back hubbing after a long lay off. One of the things I wanted to do was a series of Hubs on poker, specifically the home game and dealers choice games. I've done a bunch of them without complaint from HubPages.
Im really not sure where the line is..but I really does seem Xomba is being overly careful.
If you put "poker" into the google adwords tool youll see massive returns on the term
With so many advertisers, adsense must not have much of an issue servings ads for poker
I would look around the adsense forums for detailed info and some staff responses on where the line is between poker and card games and 'gambling"
And from Google:
AdSense publishers aren't permitted to place Google ads on sites with gambling or casino-related content. In other words, if your site accepts money or allows users to place bets in exchange for an opportunity to earn cash or other prizes, then it's unacceptable to place Google ads on your site. Please note that this policy also prohibits the placement of Google ads on sites that link to online gambling sites.
I'd be contacting the HP team for further clarification.
Thanks darkside, I had checked the HP Help section, read the area you quoted, and thought I was ok. Re Google restrictions, again I thought I was ok - no links or reference to online or casino gambling. My Hubs are about dealers choice home games, where no profit, or rake is allowed. Agreed that I need HP interpretation, confirmation that I'm well within guidelines.
There are some great hubs on here about poker. They're instructional and don't *really* promote gambling in the way that Google is referring to. You may want to do a search on HP to get an idea of what poker hubs are already on here.

Hi guys, I've written a great Hub on how to choose an online poker room. I have not included any links or affiliate capsules. It is 100% informative and not promotional at all. It doesn't mention any online poker rooms either. Is it okay to post a Hub like this?Cheers and thanks in advance for your...

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google Adsense. The question is, do I have to do anything to add Google Adsense to my...

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few more. As of right now, I have 239 total views, and each Hub has roughly 36...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...
