I had a backlog of articles on gambling strategy that I wanted to use to see if it would be worthwhile persevering as a hubber, so some months ago I began posting that content. I was a little surprised Hubpages accepted this content since adsense appeared to prohibit gambling content.
Reading the FAQ and the forums suggested that, basically, Hubpages believes that gambling content is OK provided it doesn't result in casino spam.
Posting the articles was a complete waste of my time. Several of my articles got deleted on a quite random and incomprehensible basis, the official explanation being that it was ok to write strategy articles, but any suggestion that you could win would be a violation of Google's adsense policy. This is really dumb-the only point of any gambling strategy article is to increase your chances of winning. The policy was applied very inconsistently.
I did some research and it took me all of two minutes to determine that Google's adsense policy on gambling is actually this: no gambling content whatsoever. It doesn't matter whether it is ad fluff for a casino or an in-depth poker strategy article. No gambling content whatsoever.
My conclusion is that Hubpages are either blurring the issue for its own benefit or is too lazy to two minutes worth of research. The only point of this article is to save others wasting their time and trying to publish articles in this field.
It is not just Hubpages, if you have an Adsense account you can use it in your own sites, you must know the Adsense content Guidelines or you may lose your Adsense account for inappropriate content.
If you have that kind of content why don't you make your own website or blog and monetize it with affiliating programs from casinos or other gambling sites...

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from my fellow music Hubbers as well. If you've written any Hubs about music (any kind...

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

Hello,I just started here at HP recently, and so far I'm less than impressed with it overall. I have two other blogs, (one url I own, the other is a wordpress blog) and I wanted to use HP for content that doesn't really fit in at my other blogs. I'm about to delete my HP account and just start...

I've reviewed the instructions and have been declined again. I joined hubpages in January of 2013, and wrote 4 hubs. In the last few days I have written 6 more hubs. All of my hubs are featured and I have ten total. I hoped that 10 featured hubs would be enough. I am in the...
