Some of my hubs us an analogy to describe in simple terms a technical topic. How do I get AdSense to ignore the analogy? I’m asking because the AdSense is on topic to the analogy but off topic to the hub. How are other people including analogies and keeping AdSense relevant?
1. make sure that the title of your hub is descriptive of its content. Adsense places a lot of weight on this to decide what the page is about. A very accurate title may override the confusion caused by the analogy.
2. use title tags. Adsense also places a great deal of weight on these. So your analogy should follow a title tag within the article that makes it very clear what you are really talking about
3. do not place the adsense ad too close to the text containing the analogy. Adsense places more weight on text which is closest to the adsense code in deciding what ads to display. For example, if the text describing the analogy wraps around the adsense ad or is immediately to the left or right or above it, adsense will look to that text first in hopes of displaying ads relevant to what the reader is viewing. Try to keep the analogy farther away from the adsense code, and place text which describes what you are talking about in natural language closest to the adsense code.
Hope this helps.

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...

I found an article online that had the exact same title of one of my hubs, along with my user-name, but the article itself was not mine. I'm trying to figure out (1) why they did that and (2) if I should do something about it. I don't even know if it hurts my traffic. They didn't even steal the...
