I wish to completely disassociate my work from Google. They have shown themselves completely incapable of exhibiting any model of fairness or competency regarding providing accurate search capabilities for the internet user.
I do not wish their ads displayed on any of my articles at any time. They have repeatedly caused harm to many honest writers with no recourse for justice by those unfairly targeted by their faulty systems.
Since we now have sub-domains it should be possible to banish them from our personal sites. Just as they demand certain things of us before they will recommend our articles I feel I should have the same rights.
One may clearly see their laughable choices of the best articles listed in Google searches over those plainly better for the consumer. Please consider the option to prohibit Google from accessing my work in any manner. They are completely untrustworthy and inept in their attempts to control the entire internet.
I like where your going w/ this....stick it to them!
I was thinking.. All Google really needs is a little bad publicity and they are no more
Who knows though.. Maybe Google will run it's course just like most other things.
I'm telling you the only reason Google does so good is everyone says "Google it". When there is question.
The internet is made by people, yet that's the first person they screw, lol.
I'm happy to see I am not the only person who hates Google's routine. I was beginning to think everyone was afraid to vocally protest against the tyrants. Thanks for the posts, everyone.
Edited to add: From now on I will suggest others "Bing it"!
You can void all Google ads on each of your hubs while in edit mode. Click the setting on the right hand side of the screen and set ads to "None."
But does this keep HP from using them while taking their share of the time when ads and affiliate products have their codes in effect? I don't want my work to associated with the big G at all.
I hear what you are saying and even agree with you. It would be nice to be able to deny the "God of the internet" access to our work.
Unfortunately, someting has to pay the bills for HP. Now that they've lost Amazon, adsense (coupled with HP ads) is all that's left.
At the present time I make more money on Amazon than Adsemse. Google has devalued my work with no explanation as to why they did so. We have no way to fight these heavy handed bas***ds. And no one to stand up for us if we try to.
I want them disassociated with my work or else subjected to more scrutiny by the sites which allow them to crawl their content. But sites bow down to them as if they were gods. Nothing will change for the better and will simply get even worse unless something is done or a stand is taken. Fat chance, it seems.
Why would you stay on HubPages and trying to change the fundamental way that the site was created when you could get achieve your dream immediately if you took your content and started your own website? You can have an entirely AdSense-free site that way and could even block Google robots from spidering your pages.
Yes I know this, but I still detest ill treatment no matter where it is displayed. Besides, this isn't about money, it's about fairness and the future of the net. Do you want Google to control everything you do online? If not, you will understand my concerns with their power.
Bing It, Yahoo It - anything but the g-word!
If Hubpages lost all the Amazon profit, are the people who can still use amazon now getting 100% of the profit??? If not, why?

Go Bing! Go Bing! Gooooo Bing!!!
Can I give a +1 to Bing?
just sayin' . . .
.... Bing won't even index your pages until you get sufficient backlinks from other sites, basically mandating the need to manually promote your content from the get go or necessitating others to find your work through another search site before hand then post a link to it.
The only reason all your articles would be cached on bing (if they are) is that you probably did a lot of it before the subdomain switch over, but consider that if you, like me, started working after the switch almost exclusively, you wouldn't be so fortunate.
example: http://www.bing.com/search?q=site%3Asoe … ;form=QBLH
versus: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy& … mp;bih=946
Bing has only 10 of my 26 articles cached, (not oldest first mind you, some old, some new, a lot skipped) and will probably take half a year or more to actually begin caching everything and thats if it gets to that point.
Dude, i looked at your content. Seriously, it looks spammy. Way too many tags that would no doubt trigger keyword spam flags and far too many amazon advertisements. Your articles shouldnt be the less than 50% content more than 50% ads that it looks like from the few i looked over.
Even if they all don't look like that, these 2 are certainly bringing the rest down:
http://randygodwin.hubpages.com/hub/The … und-Blinds
http://randygodwin.hubpages.com/hub/Tru … s-Grizzard
Consider that search engines will see those related hub links as the same quality of content that ads are most likely. Try to space that out more. Also, remove like 2/3rds of your tags.
Remember: HP placed ads count to. Comments do not. You need to balance that out.

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different scenario's to me so that I can better judge and understand which option is better for...

I have been using HP for over 7 years now, and I do make a few bucks from my writings. I can say that you will never get rich or even make a living off of HP, but you can make enough to, as I tell friends, "go out to dinner a couple of times a month". But my point here is that as I watch...

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...
