      I had no idea that Homeland Security advertised! What do their ads say?

        It advertises jobs for the police state.

      I believe that HubPages Adsense would only be able to be by page content.

      Your Adsense can be controlled by the Competitive Ad Filter, within AdSense Setup.

      "The Competitive Ad Filter enables you to block specific ads, such as competitors' ads, from appearing on your pages."

        Thanks, I'll see what I can do.  The thing is I don't want to block all job ads...just from DHS.

    Assumption: we're talking about Google Ads.
    1)Enter Google AdSense.
    2)There are 4 tabs across the top. Select "Allow & Block Ads."
    3)You will see that you have 4 different ways of blocking, depending on the extent to which you want to take it.
    4)"Advertizer URLs" is the most specific, and possibly what you want. I have blocked one website there that I thought was a pretty bad idea to appear on my hubs.

    I'd be careful blocking ads for the Fatherland.
    They know who you are....LOL

    Scream real loud in an airport...I'm sure they wouldn't want ads associated with you then...afterwards!

    I'm wondering if Homeland Security ads are Public Service Ads. This is only a guess since I am not sure. But you might want to check into this in case I'm right.

    Make sure your AdSense account is okay. Google places non-paying  Public Service Ads when something is wrong. Could be a minor thing but needs to be followed up on.
