    Is the whole subject taboo on hubpages?

      I just wrote a hub called "6 Ways to Get More Sex"  is that off limits for google ads?  The reason I ask is that they have disappeared.

      Not sure about hubpages themselves. I recently wrote an article about baby bottles and google lifted the ads because I had the word nipple in it. I had to change it to flexible caps in order have ads on it.

        I was going to name it How to increase the quantity and quality of your sex life...but that sounded to boring, so I changed it and now ...no ads.

          Brie, you might use words like "love life" instead of using the dreaded "S" word. I have a couple blogs on blogger that Google won't touch now because I crossed the line so here I stay on safer ground.

          They pick up key words and don't look at the overall content.

    There are 7 sites above Hubpages in the US Alexa rankings which are dedicated to nothing BUT sex, each is free to join, and as such there is no shortage of places to not only talk about sex but also watch sex and post your own sex. Why does there need to be any more? I have an entire folder in my bookmarks dedicated to sex which Hubpages isn't in. The sex niche is already full, no more room in the inn.

      I know but I don't want to write for those sites, I want to write for Hubpages...and I don't think there is anything wrong with my article.

      ryankett, are you sure they are blog sites? Most of those are video sites and not erotica.

    Hi Brie, yes you can talk about it.  But Adsense adds up the naughty words and at a certain point it tips over the limit.  I hit this problem on a page a while back.  I added a couple of words like sapphic and whatever, and the ads disappeared.  Fortunately I had a clue as to what I had added and after a while got the ads back.

    Why I bothered I don't know because no ones ever clicked on an ad on that page anyway.

    So list out the words and do some editing.  Be creative and use euphemisms, maybe.

    1. Brie Hoffman profile image60
      Brie Hoffmanposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Ok, I'll see what I can do...do you know if the word "sex" is a no no?

      1. Mark Ewbie profile image86
        Mark Ewbieposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Sex is not a problem.  Repeated uses of that plus other terms is.  I have pages entitled sex - no problem.  I have mentions of sex in one or two.  No problem.  You have to experiment.

        Maybe take all wourds out - call them sss or something, wait for ads to reappear and then add back in to find the balance.

        It's a long hard slog though.  Drove me mad when I messed up my page.

    I have lots of adult sites where I talk about everything under the sun,,, and moon about sex! smile

    However I never put Google ads on them, or any other mainstream sponsors for that matter. It's simple, Google does not want to be shown on any type of sexual site or page.

    Even a tame page with just one or two sexual words will not show Google ads. It's pointless to make any type of hub with anything about sex, sexuality or erotic content.

    Feel free to post those on my adult sites however if you want, but your not making any money off them. hmm

    prettydarkhorseposted 7 years ago

    I wrote a hub about sex education among the youth, it has ads on it. Maybe because the topic is not how to etc, then the word sex in the title is ok?

    1. Brie Hoffman profile image60
      Brie Hoffmanposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Well I substituted intimacy for sex and maybe now it's ok...except it wont be placed very well in google search now sad

    No sex please we are British !!

    Seriously,  just wrote a hub called "Sex, Games, Maps, News, Jobs and Plenty of Quotes - The Key to Keywords"  which is about using keywords and one of the biggest of those is 'sex' - it's not been banned and there is no reason for it to be either.  It's actually nothing to do with sex, it about words that sell and the biggest thing that sell is Sex !

    You cannot avoid sex, but you can deal with it in a  professional manner wink

    what about using words like 'congress'.. or 'intercourse', or 'bangin'

    ?

      Brie Hoffmanposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      You know, I've seen other hubs with the word sex in them and they have ads...what's up with that?

    2. Midnight Oil profile image78
      Midnight Oilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I used the word 'masturbation' in that hub "Sex, Games, Maps, News, Jobs and Plenty of Quotes - The Key to Keywords"   - it wasn't banned, its got ads and I didn't burst into flames or go blind either ! wink

      I don't know what the problem is...

    I wrote a hub on erectile dysfunction a few months ago and the ads were banned. Later I re-wrote it and removed some sensitive words and HP restored the ads. Just change the wording in your hub.

    this is so hurtful to experience. last year, i published a hub; how to make good love to a woman, and it had more than 1500 hits and round 30 comments in 2 days, and then hubpages team unpublished it, on the grounds of adult content, which i actually avoided when writing it yet....i edited it, resubmitted for publish, it got bounced back to me...no...no...no!!

    i published another: indian girls and Nigerian girls....got bounced again...adult ridddles...lol...

    i tried again...why you should not masturbate...it came back: ads won't show, edit...you know what i did? i went and set my show ad level to..none....let google go with their ads and let my hub stay natural....lol....

    but i am trying to research how to address these "sex" topics and not get trapped by either go...o...go....or hub...o ...pages..., and i am beginning to learn...don't repeat the foot fetish words more than once..., use riddles to describe while keeping it hot and lively... and many more, try them and see.... according to google Adsense, they don't want ads you won't able to view while your kids or family are around or while at work with a colleague...so avoid keywords you my not say or use with your kids or business colleague...but sex is important to humans...

    There is such a proliferation of sex(where one can go to get ones rocks off)  on the Internet I think Hubpages should be free of it...

      My article isn't like that at all, in fact I don't think it's that riske but it is about sex.

    My nudes in art hub has not had any google ads for quite a while now. I'm not breaking my heart because it wasn't my biggest earner, but really, the paintings featured are all 70 years plus in age, and most are on public display in galleries and museums. It's ok to see them in the flesh, but not here on HubPages apparently!

  15. Brie Hoffman profile image60

    I've given up...I tried tweaking it and still no ads...so I just took it back to the original and have given up.

    Really no sex articles? LOL well not all subjects are tabboo, I mean not all subjects should be considered taboo; like safe sex can be educational or sex among teenagers should be a matter of debate. Anyway I do not think that any subject written in a quality way and not being vulgar should concern google. But we can't help that..

    On the other hand, you can still use your Amazon.com modules. It's a back door, but it's something. And the people who read your article about sex will likely read your other articles that adsense approves of.

    Just a thought.

    I have hubs with the terms "Sexy" "Girls" and "Adult" in them and all have ads. Each with keywords like sex, sexy, adult, for adults etc.

    Unless it contains any of the things hubpages says it shouldn't, then you should be all set. There guidelines follow the adsense ones. Aka no porn, no drugs etc.
