      That doesn't surprise me. This type of thing has been going on for years.

      And, if you don't like it, you will soon be told to go somewhere else.

      That apparently is how you run a website. We learn something new every day.

      Hi Paul!!

    In their 40% of impressions, hubpages often experiment with different advertisers to see what works best.

      If it works out well for hubpages and we have the option of another affilate everyone will be singing Hubpages praises again

      Here is what I found when I typed in MSN advertising

    I too noticed some such ad formations a couple of weeks ago on some of my hub pages, and then I discovered that they appear on some of the pages of other members too. Two sets of ads really. Does not interfere with G-ads but resembles them. I thought I had missed some news alert from Admin.

    It is just advertiser testing, I assume the Hubpages team are simply looking at further methods to increase monetisation of the website. 

    If it is successful you never know, it might be rolled out as an option to the rest of us.
