    Hey. Now this is about ridiculous! My hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/TheRedMonologue has been published for a while now (20 days to be precise) and was producing relative theatre/acting/story links. Just checked it today and the tattoo ads are accompanied by the sexy singles ads!!!

    I understand the whole wait until google's spider crawls it thing. Google's spider has crawled it. Relevant ads were there and now the non-related, sleazy ads are back.

    Hubpages, can you fix this PLEASE???!!!

    ProCW

    PS. Please don't tell me to "see this post" or wait until google crawls it. Repeating myself on purpose, it has been crawled and WAS showing relevant advertising.

    I totally agree ProCW - I only published http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-do-basic … mens-parts less than 24 hrs ago but it immediately had relevant ads and even got a click! I have blogs on a similar topic and they have relevant ads all the time - now I too have sexy singles and Vanessa Hughens ads - its really frustrating!

    I know that I saw ballroom ads on your hub...!

    Its a shame that these types of ads are drawn to hubpages. NEVER are these types of ads on my blog, so why then do they come to hubpages? I wonder if it is because of certain types of "other" hubs.

    PS. Good hub by the way Lissie! smile

    Oh... and what's the deal with the Proactiv acne ads EVERYWHERE on hubpages?

    Maybe someone could write a hub about how proactive really makes some people break out because that was all it did for me.  That was back in 1999 when it cost sixty dollars to buy on a television infomercial and I fell for my friend suggesting I try it.  Now one can buy it much more reasonably at the mall smile.

      I agree, but it cost me $100 in the '90's because of the exchange rate.  I ended giving a lot of it away because they kept sending it every month.....I had enough for an army before I finally got them to stop.

      Hey maybe that would make a good hub, SweetiePie!  You just might get appropriate ads, at least with that topic.  I hear there's a few around.  smile

        Yes that monthly charge for the Proactive was very annoying.  I called the customer service and explained I was a college student so they would stop charging me, but I did end up with quite a bit of unused product.  My sister had even more and once we tried to sell the unused portion at a garage sale.  No one seemed interested in Proactive LOL.

    I honestly have no idea for sure, but I would guess they try and offer the most relevant ad, then work their way down less relevant ones until they reach the point where there is only public service ads left.

    I cannot imagine the advertiser is very happy either. I know if I was selling sexy singles I wouldn't want my ads on a page more suited to children's books.

    You do have some control and can block specific advertisers in your google adsense account.

    EDIT - I was replying to a comment that has been removed. I hate that. big_smile

      But, still the unwanted(for ProCW) ads will show whenever it's the turn of hubpages' adsense id. Right? smile

      1. Mark Knowles profile image60
        Mark Knowlesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I would think so, unless they too have blocked that advertiser.

  8. ProCW profile image83
    ProCWposted 9 years ago

    I guess they are rotating the ads somehow...

    Sorry... removed the comment to make it more relevant... hehe...

    I don't understand how anything on my page would even trigger such advertising....

    I think you're correct in saying that.. (but not sure) (to weblog)

    Sorry for you Mark, I even can guess who did it big_smile

    As for the original post - I think it has the proper place on Adsense forums, not here. My wild guess would be Google did not have enough ads on your topic, and tried to serve ones it got overstocked with, in an attempt to get at least some money...

  11. ProCW profile image83
    ProCWposted 9 years ago

    disagree... it's happening to alot of us Misha... and there are PLENTY of advertisers that serve ads to things that i write about. and i have relevant tags, etc.

  12. Mark Knowles profile image60
    Mark Knowlesposted 9 years ago

    Misha - big_smile

    ProCw - I just had a thought - try deleting all those tags that say "monologue" and replacing them with things like "children stories" and Fairy tales" - maybe that would help. I don't see what could be advertised with the keyword monologue?

  13. Misha profile image76
    Mishaposted 9 years ago

    Why do you guys think that tags have any relation whatsoever to the topic of the ads served?

    1. ProCW profile image83
      ProCWposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      anything within the html body should have some sort of relevance.

      correction... any text within it

  14. Mark Knowles profile image60
    Mark Knowlesposted 9 years ago

    Because that is what Paul and Maddie have said in the past.

    Although I am open to correction that the tags have nothing to do with it.

  15. ProCW profile image83
    ProCWposted 9 years ago

    mark... i just checked it with the google keyword tool. it has high advertiser competition.

    1. Mark Knowles profile image60
      Mark Knowlesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Well, I stand corrected. But I would still have thought "fairy tale" which is just as highly searched for :

      http://www.google.com/trends?q=monologu … amp;sort=0

      Is no more appropriate. Although you do find some strange things out there. The language the word "monologue" is most searched for in is Tagalog - outweighing English by a good 2:1 big_smile

    Mishaposted 9 years ago

    I would be happy to read their explanation and change my mind, but as I see it now, Google (or any other search engine for that matter) does not give tags any more weight than to regular bolded words within the text...
