    I'm thinking of starting another account writing about a passion of mine which is a certain and specific type of Buddhism. However 'our lot' don't advertise so It's highly likely that ads appearong on the hubs will be for other types of Buddhism that I don't want to promote ... I know I can reduce them by having hubads and I probably will, but is there a way on HP of choosing not to have certain ads ?

    There is a feature in your AdSense acccount where you can adjust what types or categories of ads are featured on your Hubs, and even block some advertisers.

    However, those preferences only work during the 60% impression timeshare when your own affiliate ID is associated with your Hubs.  When HubPages ID is affiliated with your pages, your ad preferences will not be enabled.

      thanks ... yes .. looks like I can block 'religion' so I'll try that .. suppose not much I can during the HP share though sad .. will be interesting to see what ads appear in their place too

    that's really odd .. I did that and noticed most of my url channels weren't showing in adsense (which they were earlier) .. I've now unblocked the religion category but it still isn't back ... anyone got any idea why this has happened ?

    If you're interested, of the ads I saw on your first SGIbuddism hub, the religious ones were: two ads for Zenways: a UK teacher of Rinzai Zen and one ad for The New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

    I am based in the UK, hence will see UK ads more.

      Thanks .. yes .. I'd hoped to avoid these. I've found a way to see all my url channels now so I'm going to turn the religious ads off and leave overnight to see what still shows.
