This is rediculous! Seriously, Adsense has got to get a real life. It isn't only this hubs but some others and I have started putting a poll up asking if the ads are related to the material presented in the hub. Sexy Russian Girls is on my Choosing a Sewing Machine and Learning How To Sew.
Happens to me too. I'll look once and they're there. A few minutes later the ads match my hub. It's never happened to me on any other site but hubpages. I'm getting annoyed because some of my hubs are about homeshooling preschool and I have hot tamil girl adverts. Looks extremely unprofessional.
she pulled all of her hubs in disgust over the poor ad targeting.
which IS unique to hubpages ...its the HP share of impressions that is somehow perverted by all the content on the entire HP site instead of immediately targeting our individual content.
I dont really seem to have issues myself but I cant think of any other reason why dating and hot tamil and various bollywood ads would appear on iPad and PC content. On fresh sites with low content one may get PSA ads and google ads at first - never seen sexy desi aunties and the like until publishing here
Maybe they thought th C & R were missing. A typo !
Gosh darn that is funny.
Sorry Lady, I know how frustrating that is, but damn that is funny stuff. Thanks for the giggles.
funny, funny, funny.
You've raised similar concerns before, and we always give you the same answer: AdSense reverts to "generic" ads on pages that don't get much traffic. Once a hub has a decent amount of visitors, they will target ads. However, if traffic slows again, they may revert to generic ads again.
Yes I know this Maddie, BUT the fact remains that they should not be putting those kinds of ads on the sites that don't have anything to do with them. My site is not slow by any means either so that washes that reasoning out. I don't mean to be rude. Those who vist out sites who don't know what we do will not come back and those who are on a homeschool site will think not so highly of her work nor of hubpages. Respect for the viewer. How can we let Google Adsense know that we disapprove of these actions? I believe some others here want to know this too.
Add the advertising site URL into competitive ad filter list.
On other hand, I think adsense is into recession so allowing bids from adult sites these days. Lol.
You all may laugh all you want but guess what the people who read the lady who has the homeschooling hub thinks when that comes up on their screen. What kind of impression does that give the parents? Do you even care? You all are rediculous and silly. We may know that it will change if we press refresh, but the readers may not.
Yes on a serious note I do agree. It is not right, sorry Lady I just got my net back after nine long days, am delirious to be back.
One thing you can do is : Add the advertising site URL into competitive ad filter list.
I've never seen a single sexy Russian girls ad on Hubpages.
But why don't you do what skyfire said instead of taking offense at the laughter.
It is an ad put on our hubs by Google adsense. I don't think it would matter what it is as we don't have control over what ads google puts on our sites only that we can filter them, but I have already done that. Put your foot in our shoes and see how you would feel.
I feel bad about it myself.
My hubs are full of various dating site ads even though they have nothing to do with dating. They are not sex ads, but still they don't belong there.
We as hubbers have no say in this.

My recent hub about the development of grammar in Mandarin Chinese had an ad on how to meet exciting Asian women on it. I had to laugh. Clearly, anybody interested in the ad couldn't be interested in the hub.
if it had been sexy guys I would have gone and looked....darn
I thought that Yield Build would have prevented this from happening. Actually I'm losing a lot of money due to non relevant ads. Even on my top performer hubs.
Probably it's because there are many sexy desi aunties hubs. Which are of awful quality but are good for the site as they drive a lot of traffic. And people looking for those hubs are probably more apt to click on those ads. And we all know that clicks means money. Maybe I should start to write sexy hubs too.
Anyway since those ads lower the quality of the site they should be banned, and if I'm right if someone doesn't want those ads can block them, right?
I didn't read any hub from JeanMeriam, but it is a really bad thing that someone leaves in this way and for this reason. Someone should do something.
Hmmmm....sexy Russian girl ads attached to a sewing hub? Maybe adsense is trying to get more Russian men to take up sewing
You can block categories too. I have blocked sex, but not sexual health. I have also blocked dating.
If you have problems in knowing how to filter, here is a hub to help:

Have any of you found detestable ads on your hubs? It is a "game" with girls in bras...how distasteful I want it off my hub...do you know if we have a say in this? It has nothing to do with my poem and is disgusting to me.

Ads on my hub titled "Alex Kelly Rape Case: Talk About Rushing to Judgment! " have been disabled by a moderator. While I do not really care about making money on ads (I'm not even sure what ads I had on the hub) I'm puzzled about this action by HubPages because there remain two ads on my...

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads disabled based on automatic filters. This problem I reported in order to have...

I just wrote a Hub last week entitled "Adam Lambert Sexed for Success". It did quite well, in fact it receive over 1700 views in less than a week. (that's good for me, anyway). My overall ranking on hubpages as of this morning was 96. The article was ranked anywhere from 87 - 93 and the...

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 wanted to ask why Hub Ads are showing on my hubs when I have the feature turned off?
