Is anyone else having a problem with ads popping up while they are trying to read a hub? I have had it happen twice to me this morning and I didn't click on the ad. I have no idea where the pop-up is coming from. I didn't want to be in trouble for clicks that I didn't commit to. Thanks for your help.
I keep getting a warning that Hubpages is trying to force a pop-up on me when I open a browser directly into the "my account" page (I never go to the home page as it has no interest for me whatsoever). I have automatic pop-ups disabled and obviously refuse the pop-up when I am asked if I want to see it so do not know if this is another ad.
I really think pop-ups are the trademark of a spammy site, and HP should get rid of any and all pop-ups on this site immediately.
This is driving me nuts. I found that it is coming from the words with the two blue lines under them. I forgot the name of them. I have my pop-ups blocked along with my smartscreen filter. I hope HP will eliminate these types of ads. I will be upset if I lose my adsense over it.
@Skyfire- I have no clue, I would have to ask my hubby.
I am seeing more and more of the highlighted blue words that are creating these ads. Maybe something can be done about them automatically popping up.
No, we sure don't want to be one of those sites that aggravate everybody with popups. I think that just drives readers away.
Highlighted URLS ? That sounds weird because hubpages got rid of kontera few months ago. Check your browser and see if there is any adware installed on your browser. If not then this could be ad issue from hubpages.
If you take a screenshot of the offending ad when you see one, and email that directly to the admin team, it really helps them to deal with these.
This site is not supposed to have pop-ups and unscrupulous advertisers sneak that sort of thing in all the time, but just starting a random thread complaining doesn't give the admin team much to go on towards tracking them down and removing them.
Thanks, I don't want to come off as complaining, but more out of consern. How is it I take a screen shot? I have seen a few other ads that fell under violations, but have no idea how to do a screen shot to report them. As for Kontera, that is what I had thought, that it was eliminated. I will be sure to have my hubby help look into this, to see if it is on my end. I am seeing the Kontera stuff all over HP with this browser. Thanks again for your help.
I keep getting a Jack In Box pop up very annoying since it has a count down even when I press skip ad button. It keeps popping up in random pages. Sometimes it pops up when I go to somebodies profile or a hub page not on live feed

Good morning Guys! I have just logged in and I saw a lot of ad pop ups including amazon in my HP articles, even in the comments. What happened? I don´t think it is from this site. It looks so spammy that I don´t like to continue reading. I checked my blogs and it´s the same. What shall I do?...

Hi, I'm sure this can't be right. When I am checking my article "Essay: Why is God punishing me?" without my clicking on anything, it switches to an ad about Ola icecream.We are not allowed to click on our own ads, and I am most definitely not. It just does it automatically. What is...

I noticed at about 9am today that each time I look at any Hub, I get an ad filling my screen at first. Is this a new feature of HP? Thanks. I'm not clicking ads, honest!

For Hubbers who are participating in the HubPages Ad Program: We are testing a new type of ad unit from now until the end of the month. The campaign is for Mrs. Meyers cleaning products, and the ad unit will expand if a user hovers or clicks on the area marked "click or hover to expand."...

Sometimes as I'm browsing HubPages, instead of an ad, I get this weird jumbly mixture of lettershttp://i.imgur.com/Cg6l7.jpgThis screenshot was taken at about 3AM today (EST) from a hub category that I think was called "locations" I went to check for it again, but am having trouble...
