Is there an appropriate place to put guns, as in types of guns, gun accessories, etc.?
do you mean where to store them??
I have a gun cabinet, that stays locked, it's fire proof, has a combination lock, etc....I think it's a fort knox, you can put guns, rifles, all the accessories there, they are protected, and locked away from children, etc... .... I have nothing against guns, I do enjoy my venison and wild pork...and you never know when you might have a bear to come around....
Thanks for the question.
When writing about guns, it is important to remember the Google Adsense Rules:
https://www.google.com/support/adsense/ … wer=105950
I've added some additional categories for you:
Sports & Recreation/Hunting & Shooting/Shooting & Shooting Accessories/Rifles
Sports & Recreation/Hunting & Shooting/Shooting & Shooting Accessories/Shotguns
Sports & Recreation/Hunting & Shooting/Shooting & Shooting Accessories/Handguns
Sports & Recreation/Hunting & Shooting/Shooting & Shooting Accessories/Gun Accessories
whoa...i didn't know we could write about guns here.
I just read those rules. It says Google ads are not permitted to appear on sites about guns.
"Not permitted" by whom?
If your talking about storage, there are cabinets and gun safes. There are lots of really cool safes, hand/finger print activated stuff for handguns, some really cool fire proof stuff as was mentioned above. If you're looking for a hub topic, I bet that's a good one that will get you several hubs if it's not already been worked to death.
As mentioned in the title of the post, "Category"
Why would I ask storage questions in a website problem/question forum?
Thanks Larry, that'll do fine.
As for the rules, are we able to write about gun laws? Or gun holsters? I saw accessories, but those listed were gun parts and accessories (I would figure lasers, spotters, knifes that attach to rifles, etc)
Would one put airsoft guns and paint ball guns under handguns? Or would that be another category?
well i'm glad you said something. it makes me wonder why there are categories for them then.
which brings up another question. i have been wanting to write a hub about Victorian erotica. Amazon sells books about Victorian erotica. it would of course not be explicit in any way, but it would be, well, erotic, but not in a bad way. would that get my Adsense revoked?
also, we can now carry concealed weapons here. would a hub about that be a cause for Adsense revocation?
I have had a hub up for months which google will not put any adsense ads up for my 60%.
Hp checked out the hub and found nothing wrong with it even though it does contain violence it is fictitious and actually the hub I am most proud of.
My determination is Google can be fickle.
I agree. Why have categories if Google doesn't allow adds on the page. I have seen many gun ads posted by Adsense, I don't understand why they don't allow it.
The content network is supposed to be family friendly - the search network seems to have different rules (whether stated or not)
So if Google Adsense places ads for guns on your hub, you get penalized for it?
if YOU place the adsense script and your associated id on content that doesnt fit within the liquid TOS - you may be penalized for it, you are more likely to get penalized during the odd seconds of first quarter of every third Thursday, unless that Thursday falls on an even month ..then you are ok
so in short its always best to keep a far berth from anything questionable
I sell hunting rifle scopes on one of my hubs and google places hunting ads on this article too. As long as the article discusses using firearms while hunting I suppose it is within the rules as stated on the TOS.
As far as I know, I haven't been penalized for these ads.
Hmm... So basically just be careful what you write about?
I've seen many gun hubs about laws and accessories. They seem to have Google ads on them, which is why I thought they were fine.
Basically, if Google puts their own ads on there, they're ok? Or better than if you put them on there yourself, so to speak? Just trying to decide if I can write my gun purse and gun holster hubs.
If they're about using hunting guns or accessories for hunting rifles, is that closer to the ok? Since rifles hunted with are acceptable

Today I started reorganizing my hubs to improve on my profile page. Now I never was too happy with the category I put many of my hubs.... Because Sports and Recreation has a sub category that is hunting fishing and shooting. This seems to be the only place I can list to get FISHING.I DO NOT want to...

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-SurgeryNo poison words...

I notice that Apple just replaced its handgun emoji with a water pistol. According to the Guardian this 'reflects growing despair in America and worldwide over gun crime'.I have a target archery hub on skyaboveus. Archery is a pretty harmless sport as long as you are not shooting animals, and...

Why do the the left wingers think that tighter gun laws and more through background checks will keep the "bad guys" from getting guns? The bottom line here is that "bad guys" are not going into gun stores and buying guns legally. They will get there guns any way they can from...

I just switched to HP from adsense and have noticed that there are some ads that I find offensive (for women in Russia for example). I find it interesting that HP will ding me if I put something off-color on my hubs but this is allowed. How do I get these kinds of ads off my hubs?
