I just published a new hub regarding mobile spyware. The content of my hub strongly indicates that I'm against this phenomenom. However, the ads that popped on on my hub support
spyware. This is an obvious conflict. How do I, or can I control the ads and their relevancy? The url to my hub is: <link snipped, no self-promotional links in forum>
The correct URL of your hub is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Spy-On-This
And there isn't a lot you can do about it unless you want to block each advert individually whenever you see one, which is both time consuming and often can hurt the amount you earn.
Unfortunately google searches through your content and matches adverts based on the most common words in it, not for or against. For example a hub against Scientology may well end up with an advert FOR Scientology.
You can uncheck the 'hub is commercial' and take adverts off completely if you prefer, and try to monetize it with Amazon.
If you don't use Adsense or care about ad revenue, you can disable the ads provided that there are no outbound links from the hub. If you use Adsense, you can filter out advertisements from specific sources inside your Adsense control panel. However, such filtering will only affect your 60% share of the page impressions. Other than that, I believe there is not much that you can do about it.

Why am I seeing ads for Maven on my unpublished, unfinished Hub? Possibly (hopefully) a glitch? This makes no sense. Nobody sees an unpublished Hub but the writer. Is Maven marketing to HubPages writers? Aren't we part of Maven? They appear to be Adsense ads, so we can't click on them anyway.I am...

Who do you have on your Competitive Ad Filter (you have to be logged into Adsense to be taken directly to that page) and (if you're feeling up to it) why?I have added scientology.orgI won't actually discuss the why on this point, because it'll become a huge rant. And I'd prefer this thread to be...

I don't know if this is workable or not, it's just a suggestion.However I was just reading a thread about hubbers "rewarding" other hubbers by clicking their adverts. My suggestion: Since we cannot see Kontera adverts while logged in, could the same be applied to Adsense?Obviously there...
