Just asking, I just started here. I posted a hub on a parenting topic and ended up with a meet sexy singles ad flickering right next to my post - kind of off putting. If I were looking through that particular subject area I quite frankly wouldn't bother reading a hub that had that kind of ad associated with it. The ad doesn't suit the content or context of my hub. Just askin'
Audrevea is correct. It takes a bit of time for the google bots to "read" and analyze the content of your hub and come up with appropriate contextual ads.
At times the ads will also seem inappropriate in relation to the content based on your past browsing history - which is to say, Google will track and display ads that you are more likely to click based on past surfing habits and not necessarily based on the content of the web page.
that made me laugh not at you but at the fact that I haven't bought new underwear in who knows how long let along some sexy little number....oh dear....the likelihood of my having clicked on one of those is pretty slim...not impossible...as in oops my mouse slipped...but improbable. I know this post goes under the heading "too much information" but it sure brightened up my day!
Thank you both for your kind responses to my question.
This has also been bothering me lately. Google ads on my own website in the same general subject are always much more targeted than the ones here in HubPages. And a LOT less distracting!
I wish HubPages would just go for the text ads themselves, they probably work better too and are a lot easier on the eyes.

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 just made a post today about the Harry Potter wands at Ollivander's shop in the new Harry Potter theme park. That term gets plenty of hits.Yet I see often the ads that should show for adsense is blank. I assume that means there are no ads that match it? Sometimes there are ads there, and they are...

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...
