Hi there, could someone please tell me if it is ok to use safelists for advertising your hubs? I was using adsolutions a while back and my page views went up but someone told me that google does not allow this and i could be banned for using them ? Need to get traffic to my hubs :-(
This discussion from the AdSense support forums should be helpful:

I have to say, though, that I haven't used safelists in years to promote anything and quite frankly couldn't get out of them fast enough. Safelists are simply "advertisers advertising to advertisers," so there's no real customer base there. And most of them are geared toward the MLM/home business front. Most safelist mail ends up in someone's yahoo spam folder because participants are only interested in advertising their own offers and not looking at anyone else's.
At least that was my experience years ago.
Hi donna yes that seems to be the general advice alright “stay away from them” I was on one a while back, absolutions, and I was getting a lot of traffic from it. But then someone told me I could be banned from Google so I stopped.
Unfortunately I am not getting much traffic besides.
I know people say it takes time and hard work which I am not afraid of so I will just have to keep working at it.
Thanks for your reply I appreciate it.
thank you for that very helpful link to the google adsense help forum. I am still feeling my way around and have a lot to learn,, silly me that's where I should be asking alright... I have the link now so I can ask away. Thanks again appreciate it. Sorry for the delay in replying but i was at my office job today. Not enough hours in the day :-)

Thanks Ms. Angel, I'm glad to help. I found that discussion very informative, and rather pointed. I also noted that some of the participants were very experienced, including a Top Contributor, which is an honorary title within the Google support system - they can flag posts for staff review, and so are considered elite. Good luck to you!

I wanted to give folks an update since there were a number of questions regarding Google at the end of September. We found a significant regressions that in early September let a large number of old profiles into Google's index (Millions of pages became indexable). We put out a fix as...

Hi All. It has been technically four years since I have joined HubPages. I was rather moved from Squidoo to HubPages when the former shut shop. But I could not adapt myself to the changed environment in HubPages and so did not bother republishing any of my Squidoo lenses for a long time. I lost...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...

Well, its hard to put into words really. I have been very unwell for several weeks and during that time I had an email from Adsense saying I wouldn't be showing ads any more and I have no idea why. I see that several weeks ago my earnings have dropped from almost 2 dollars a day to just a few cents...
