Hi all! I have noticed that many of my hubs have many of the same Adsense ads, some of which do not relate to my products at all. Can I specify what ads go into each specific hub? (God that's a lot of work....) Thanks again!
You can block adverts out from showing on any hub, if there are some general ones that you'd prefer not to display.
There's an option to block them in your adsense account.
Yep, it's easier to block out the generic ads, they are reallly annoying and definitely hurt CTR.
Thanks for the help. And I can do this for each specific hub too? It looks like I just place the URL so I assume my hubpages.com/articlename and it will block generic ads or competitive ads for that specific hub?
Ad blocking is done in your AdSense account, and can only be applied across the entire account, not to specific Hubs. You enter the URLs of the ad competitors, not Hub URLs.
Note that during the 40% timeshare when HubPages affiliate code is associated with your Hub that your ad preferences won't be applicable.
Improving your web content and narrowing Hub tags to be tightly specific can also help improve the relevance of ads.
Great Information, If I just blocked the third party ads from displaying general ads on my hub, how long does it take before all the general ads are not being used on your hub?
I also understand that hubpages can keep the general ads on my hubs for their timeshare, but that still does not affect my earnings right?

Hi again,I posted on this topic before, but I have lost where in the zillions of posts the topic thread is located, so here's my latest lament:Moments ago, I hit the "PUBLISH" button for my latest hub on the unbelievability of human-caused global warming, and, low and behold, what sorts...

I seem to get strange ads that are irrelevant to my hub. Is their a way to 'streamline' the google ads to match the content?

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Hi fellow hubbers,I recently wrote a hub on plastic pollution, and below a tragic picture of a plastic-polluted beach, there are small ads for plastic products.I find this insensitive to the theme of the hub and parasitic on the cause IN A BAD WAY.I assume that I have absolutely NO control over...

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...

I'm still new to AdSense and all that, but the first impression I got (especially after reading what other Hubbers have to say) is that once you're approved, all your Hubs will have AdSense ads. I got my approval email, but only a couple of my hubs are generating clicks. Does Google need to approve...
