    Recently I celebrated one year on hubpages and decided to write a hub about my experiences. In fact, I've only just begun and so far the hub is only one paragraph long. It is entitled 'An amateur writing on the internet - Hubpages, one year on' and starts off by explaining that I was completely new to online writing and did not even know what basic terms like backlinking were.

    Already a warning has come up saying that the ads will be disabled on this hub.  Why??? I cannot imagine what the problem is. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them.

      I just finished a hub.  When I started it I first put photos in and saved it unpublished.  The same thing happened to me.  I ignored it and continued to add to the hub over the next 2 weeks.  The disabled ads message dissapeared shortly after adding more content.  just continue to write in it.  It should eventually go away.

    I recommend trying to complete the hub, as the pattern and frequency of words may play a role. If the warning is still there when you're done, contact HubPages prior to publishing.

      Thanks, Website Examiner. I'll write a bit more and see what happens. Hopefully the warning will disappear before I get to the end or it might have been a waste of time!

    Exactly the same thing happened to me recently, and I concur with Daffy Duck and Website Examiner.  By the time I had my hub completed and ready to publish, the ads disabled warning went away.  Hopefully this will be the case for you too. (In my case I think it was the word 'stimulation' that had triggered the warning, although I was using it purely in the context 'intellectual stimulation'...!)

    Giselle Maine, I read your hub just now, and it is very benign. I agree about the word, however. In the OP's case, "Amateur" may be the problem. I also believe the warning will most likely go away when more text is added.

      Yes WE, you are right. I simply deleted the word 'amateur' and the warning has disappeared. Thanks for your help smile
