Attention HP Staff: Non-relevent Google Ads Being Served

    HP staff, please look into the following issue.  People are recording lowered ctr because google is serving up garbage ads to much of the content.  My hub on ATVs had asian beauties dating sites served up today. And there is always those stupid coupon ads coming up.

    Something is seriously wrong here.  You aren't receiving googles ad serving properly or they have stiffed you and us with garbage ads and advertisers.

    This has been occurring since the Google crackdown. Ads now are horrible.

    I've noticed that, too. Ads with absolutely nothing to do with my articles.  Kind of takes away whatever crediblity I might have.  Not that I have alot.. smile

      Hmm, no response from staff.  Surely they have noticed this too.

    An ad about childhood obesity and one for diamonds on my hub about the Cherry Blossom Festivsal in Washington, DC.  What the heck?

    Great game.

    Fish pedicure (I kid you not) with Groupon voucher on my Gay Pet hub.

    There is at least some sense in that I suppose.

      When is the staff going to address this HUGE issue???   Its one thing to get knocked in the SERPs but to have google serve up garbage and non-relevant ads is a total insult.

    Mu hub on trout fishing has one on crawlspace mold removal, one on Mindbody healing, and one selling trucks locally.

    Ads are sometimes placed based on your past searches and web travel.  Which makes my wonder just WHERE have you been???? Fish pedicures indeed! big_smile
