I can only think they are on another flagging drive and just yesterday I had 2 long-standing hubs have their ads disabled.
It must be the word "suicide" or "suicidal" they are targeting in your case.
Great hub by the way. May indeed help a lot of people with suicidal thoughts.
I will ask, geez, what is wrong with writing about Suicide ...especially to prevent it. Sometimes I get very frustrated with the Censors here.
Thanks, I do get a lot of thank you comments from this hub and to tell you the truth it really doesn't make much money anyway.
You could write to the hub team and ask for it to be re-enabled?
I'm leaving mine. At some stage I will probably unpublish from here and republish elsewhere. It's not the first time staff have disabled ads then re-enabled at a later date without any consultation on my part.
And mine don't make much money either so I guess it doesn't really matter.
Ads are not going to be enabled in that hub. I have 6 hubs on suicide prevention where ads are disabled. Hubs covering sensitive or sexually related topics are not acceptable to many advertisers that's why ads are disabled in such hubs. Programs don't understand whether you are encouraging suicide or preventing it. They only understand you are talking about suicide. You can monetize the hub with amazon product like books.
I think it is to protect an advertiser's image.. what would people think if they see ads of a company on a suicide prevention article? Are they trying to earn money from suicidal people (or friends/relatives of suicidal people)? Might not be so good for the company's brand.
I asked the hub pages team and they said that they would reinstate the ads because the hub was more like a self improvement article than anything...so they are back
They said that my hub was flagged by a new and overly enthusiastic person, that because it was more of a self help it was ok...Sorry about yours.
This is the reason for members of staff to identify themselves. They are not perfect and sometime a person has to go over the head of a lower staff member to get things done.
I like to know who I am dealing with so if they do not do a satisfactory job of handling problems, I can request someone else. I don't think this is asking too much in a business relationship.
You will see lots of similar types of hubs in hubpages with and without ads. 5 of my hubs got ads disabled but one didn't though I used almost the same batch of keywords for all.
Having staff respond using their names helps weed out the "over-zealous" types which always cause more trouble than they are worth to a business. Does a responsible business really want their staff to have to hide their identities from those they are involved in business with?
Ahhh...that is interesting! So they do have a new staff member (I wondered this on another thread seeing as loads of us seem to getting flagged at the moment).
Glad to hear your issue is resolved, Brie
Good news! Did you converse with a person with a name on the staff? For some reason they seem reluctant to use their names when responding to queries.
Personally, I like to think this is a professional exchange of information shared by both partners. They know my name already but don't feel free to reveal theirs. How do we know who to praise or fault if we need to do so?
yea hub pages just creepy, they are disabling ads on hubs depending on the topic, i think they should allow ads to display especially if you are trying to shed light on a topic people have hard time talking about and it can help them.
