    I frequently see that hubpages showing images ads in our hub.

    I love text ads, is it possible to prevent those ads appearing to our hubs?

      Probably not. Besides, I'm guessing that the image ads pay a lot more than the text

        I doubt they pay any more or less, its the market for the keywords which dictates the price, but I believe they can convert fantastically.

            See my reply. Its nothing to do with the nature of the ads, it has everything to do with the price that the market dictates your keywords are worth. The ads displayed on your hubpages are the ads of the advertisers which offered the most money to advertise on your own unique keyword combinations. The nature of the ad is irrelevant, the highest bidder gets the impressions. Sometimes bidding gets high, sometimes it goes low, its just like an auction. I suggest that you attempt to try and understand the AdWords system before you seek to take advantage of its cousin AdSense; pure speculation will earn you nothing. Informed speculation will give you a chance of winning a jackpot. If you bet on a horse race then you read the form guide, take the odd tip, you dont bet blindly on the horse with the funniest name or the jockey with the shiniest coat.

        If your hubs are not considered commercial, try setting the ad level to low or medium, then see if you are happy with the result.

          What do you mean?

          If I set my hub as non commercial, will it show google ads?
          Shall i get any adsense impression?

          I think you suggesting me to try that.

            If a hub is not considered commercial, you have the option of setting the ad level to none, low, medium, or high. That is available on the upper part of your screen when in editing mode. If "none," no ads will be shown. If "low" or "medium," fewer ads will be shown, and that may work for you.

      Image ads can convert really well, particularly if your hub somehow manages to attract the semi-literate. Stupid people like shiny things.

      What you shouldn't ever be getting is a video ad though, and if you do see one on any hubpage then you should report the ad to the hubpages team. Preferably with a screenshot and the URL of the hubpage on which it occured.

      And if you have any outgoing links at all on the hub you cannot set it as non-commercial.
