    I've noticed that advertisement or links are being placed in between the lines of a poem or  haiku verse. This is very distracting to the reader and disrespectful to the creative writer. Has anyone else had concerns about this?

      Yes, Cat. We have been complaining about this forever, but nothing changes. It is a terrible look, and makes poetry very difficult to read and appreciate.

        Thank you, John. I  rarely visit the forum anymore nor feel inspired to write. My visits are usually to edit or update to keep content evergreen.
        I read your article " In Memory of HubPages" and have to agree that I miss having that direct input and the camaraderie of a creative community.
        As a primarily informative article writer, it disturbs me to see AI articles that are perfectly written when the author can't  properly spell the title or write a brief description without grammatical errors. It also seems that 30% of HP articles are self-promoting ads for businesses that have little relevance here. I like the niche sites, but I've little control over editing snips, and earnings have dropped significantly.
        Like you, I stay. I've learned much about streamlining, APA, and backlinks. For that, I'm grateful, and I do get views. I'm glad you are still here. I wish you well, always.  Cat

      I don't know about others, but the last few poems I published I turn off ads. Then only the recommended queue for another article appears. It is not as bad doing that. I haven't take the time to go back and do that to my older poems, yet.

        That is probably a good idea, Tim. I may follow suit.

      I just recently added to another thread how I found an ad in the middle of a list of ingredients for a recipe. It's frustrating and I think that at least some readers wouldn't appreciate it.

      I've not notice this trend. But I take a look later.

      Yes, all of us I'm sure. You can prevent them by using shift enter after each line. Ads are inserted after so may paragraphs. A paragraph is created when you hit enter. Shift enter just creates a new line without creating a paragraph.

        I use "shift enter" for everything I write now, but haven't gone back and changed it on older articles/poems.

          A possible issue is that Google sees text as one big lump, rather than divided into paragraphs, so I don't know what the unforeseen consequences of that would be like understanding content.

          Yes, the ads are a pain, ruin the read and lower viewing figures but HP care not one jot it seems.

          You might get away with a photograph of a poem if it's short or of medium length. Worth a try.

            Okay. Noted it. And you mean that the the photo size recommended by hubages is note worth it?

      I just returned from LetterPile on the challenge.                                   Yes, HubPages had the right to place advertisment.                                      But here it's one too many. One or two ads is enough, and we've been complaining all about this for a long time.                                        The thing is that when Hubpages acts on TAG's orders on ads issues, they's no going back.

  2. Venkatachari M profile image83

    It is normal for HubbPages nowadays. They put ads anywhere they like.
    So, no use in complaining. Simply turn off the ads on your pages.

    I'll try this new trick 'shift enter' whenever I write new reads and poems.                                             It's a whole new world to me. Thanks guys.

    Good morning...

    Cat, I've done the very same thing.  It's why I haven't published any poetry of late.  Most of what I write is scooped up by LetterPile and the ads for LP are just as bad.

    I do have a question for everyone in the know at HP with all of the changes...I'm still learning. :-)

    If we do turn off our ads, will we be penalized in terms of points? 

    Thanks, everyone, and enjoy your weekend!

      theraggededgeposted 2 weeks agoin reply to this

      Points? Do you mean hubscore?

      They don't mean anything unless they are really low. Turning off ads shouldn't affect them... and if it increases your views then that's good for your hubscores.

    Genna Eastposted 2 weeks ago

    Thanks, Bev.  Yes, that is what I was referring to. 

    HP scores also denote the frequency of publications. 

    Still, I wonder if we do turn off ads, will we be penalized for this in some fashion?  For example, HP is inserting under the word, Recommended, links to not only our articles but to others as well.  And you cannot see the name of the author under the title.  Will they insert more links to other authored articles -- ones that have not turned off ads?

    Thanks, John for this interesting work-around:

    I use "shift enter" for everything I write now, but haven't gone back and changed it on older articles/poems.

    Sorry, I meant to type:

    HP scores also denote the frequency of publications in terms of views.  (Although I have a few articles that are several years old that still get quite a few views every month.)

    This one is a new thing for me, Eugene! The idea of "Shift + Enter". I should try it in my new articles to see the effect. Thanks for the tip.

    eugbug, has contributed much, not only to this forum. But others as well.                                               The 'shift enter' thing is a new world to me.                                         I shouldn't be a lazy, foolish, and stupid person not to try the rope, when editing and writing new stuff. Thanks everyone.

    Hi...

    I turned off the ads for only my poetry.  The ads disappeared for those few poems that were not scooped up by LetterPile.  They do not turn off for poetry items published under LetterPile.  Am I missing something?

      Hello, May I ask about how to link my google adsense account to my hubpages’s ?
      Because I did not find “ affiliate..” in my settings , Help me out please.
      Thanks.

      1. theraggededge profile image97
        theraggededgeposted 2 weeks agoin reply to this

        You can't. HubPages no longer uses Adsense. However, you can add your Amazon affiliate account.

        Go here, and click on Configure next to Amazon Program... https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/

          How can I earn from Amazon?
          Since I don’t have any account on amazon.

    Articles already moved to network sites might have different settings for their sites. It is only my guess. I don't know the exact position.
