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???!!!
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!
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 .
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.
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.
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
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...
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.
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?
Why do you guys think that tags have any relation whatsoever to the topic of the ads served?
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.
mark... i just checked it with the google keyword tool. it has high advertiser competition.
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
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...
I'm fine with Filipinos reading it... hehe They might like it.. Most Filipinos are bilingual anyway... maybe they're all into theatre... hehe
any ideas on the proactiv acne add that's pasted all over hubpages?

I have a big concern about the ads coming up on my hubs and profile. They are almost pornographic. I make an effort to keep my writing respectful and suitable for all ages, and many pieces are spiritual in nature. The ads are for a dating site, it appears, and feature closeups of a woman's body, in...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...
