A hub of mine has just had the ads disabled

    I have just received this message regarding a hub of mine that has been on the site for a long time and has had no complaints.
    "Your hub may not be in compliance with our publishing guidelines. Please review the automatically generated warning below, and correct the problem if possible. These warnings are only visible to you, the author."

    I find this really annoying as it is only about tropical fish and the sexual behaviour of animals and plants and was once published in Big Issue magazine that I used to have a column in. Why has it suddenly fallen foul of the censor here? Is the word "Sex" not allowed here? Or how about "perversion"?

    Same is the problem for me. I have around 5 old hubs that have ads disabled. I have removed the images from my hubs on getting bigger breasts and submitted for publication. Let's see if it is having any further problems.

    Hey Bard, one of mine did too. It's about how to avoid pregnancy so had the word sex in it quite a few times which caused the trigger. I just sent a quick email to the team to let them know that my hub is not about anything explicit and they sorted it out within a few hours. Ads back on, no problem.

      I've got a hub about abortion and its had ads disabled.I emailed hubteam but I've had no word back yet. No rush on mine I suppose because it was't making me any money anyway. Its still disabled.

    One of my unpublished ones "how to draw a pussy" got labelled with the $ sign, so I changed it to cat, because I was trying to be clever with the title...oh well!

      lol lol  Sorry to laugh - this just tickled me for some reason. 

      What about if you write a perfectly innocent hub, but something dodgy pops up in the "related forum posts" box of said hub?  Would the hub be in any danger of getting an ad ban?

      I would love to have the option of deleting the related forum posts box, because some of the forum threads can be a bit near the knuckle and I would prefer them not to show up in hubs that are supposed to be about serious topics (or which are likely be read by teenagers, which I think would certainly apply to my maths hubs).

        That is a really important topic and I'm glad you mentioned that. Some people seem to think the forums are for private chat or something, but really they can practically all end up in our hubs! I think the Sandpit is exempted not sure.
        As Google's spiders do look at related forum posts as well as other hubs (and we have no control over what other hubs are linked through ours) I wonder if the same topics/words from that are 'iffy' on our hubs are now banned in the forums? And do they detrimentally affect our hubs?

    Several of us have complained in the forums about lewd forum titles showing up on our hubs, but nothing has been done about it. Perhaps a fear of Google will now clean the titles up. But until then, I avoid writing any hubs in certain categories.

    And if someone does put an inappropriate title in a category such as Hobbies, I do email HP and request that it be put in the Hubber's Hangout or Sandpit, because hubs there don't show up on our hubs. They usually move it to somewhere that does't end up on our hubs.

    Thanks for all your responses! I have always said what a great site this is but am very disappointed with this automatic censorship, especially when my article has nothing pornographic or explicit in it and no swear words. The title which has the word "Kinky" in it was not even mine but was given to the piece by the editor of Big Issue magazine. We need a list of words that are not allowed here!

    About two of my ads was disabled two days ago too i have edited and submitted but no change. i only used the word breast. i dont know if google is now against the word breast and the other one was just about relationship no obscene word was used, yet i got no ads on it, am thinking of deleting all my hubs because this issue is really annoying me. thought i was the only one affected.

    Are the words lesbian and gay allowed? I wonder...

    Hey anamika smile I thought my hub on sexuality may be a contender to have the ads disabled but it's been ok.

    Tina - there's no need to change the hub if it's a non explicit topic. Email the HP team to let them know and your ads will be restored. I know it's a little bit of an inconvenience, but this system is to protect the adsense income of everyone on here.
