Yet again, another advertiser has chosen to "AUTO" run ads on our hubs. Are these people learning impaired or what?
The ad began running almost instantly after the hub was loaded. The first ad to run was about the Kia Soul, the gimmick dancing mice and then when into the advertisement about BBC news broadcast talking about Cigarettes.
I mean seriously.
There are video ads on our hubs? Sorry Cagsil, I am just surprised that HP would allow that. An auto ad would intercept attention to our articles. Bad idea for Hubbers. We want no distraction from our articles.
That's the point Cardisa....advertisers are NOT allowed to "auto" run any ads with sound. This particular ads immediately engaged sound, which was a distraction.
Staff needs to pay attention to these things more. Isn't there a way for Hp to moderate this before it actually happens?
I would have thought that HP would have some preventative measure in place to stop it from happening, but so far, nothing that I can see.
It continues to happen from time to time, which leads me to understand that advertisers are not reading the rules of their contract with HP. It's that, or HP is using really stupid advertisers.
It's kind of a double standard to me. HP enforces the Advertisers rules with us the publishers but doesn't seem to do the same with Advertisers.
I hope it was an oversight.
Ad networks serve ads from a wide range of sources, and the process is almost entirely automated. There is not a human approving/rejecting every ad served and despite restrictions being in place, it is possible that ads against our rules slip through the cracks. It's unfortunately the nature of the game.
Most publishers (including HubPages) work with several ad networks, which complicates matters even farther. That is why it is incredibly important to provide us with the most detail as possible when reporting these violations, otherwise it is difficult to figure out which ad network is responsible for serving the ad in question.
Thanks for being proactive about this Cagsil, but please remember to provide as much detail as you can and to email your reports to email@example.com.

We have visited this topic at least twice before in recent months and I continue not to understand it. No matter what I do or how many views I get somehow I always earn between $1.25 and $2.25 a day which averages out to just barely enough to make payout each month. This was the case...

Dear hubteam and fellow hubbers,I have recently posted a hub on how to beat recurrent yeast infections (wastelessproject.hubpages.com/hub/5-home-remedies-to-beat-recurring-yeast-infections). I have to admit that I was really taken aback that a hub would be evaluated as unsuitable for ads just...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

I just de-activated my HubPages ads program and I was wondering if someone has any experience to share. Did your AdSense revenue increase after de-activating HP ads?

I published an article on suicide. I thought the ads were off until it gained more traffic. But I just checked it out and it appears that the subject matter falls outside of the TOS?!!?? I had no idea. Staff and veterans, please clarify.

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that you don't have all-time revenue on your site, or any possible way to access my...
