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?

Hello everyone. I am coming back to HubPages after being gone for some time. I'm wondering why I cannot see any ads in my pages. A blank, white portion replaces the area where ads should appear. Any idea?
