One of my hubs had huge ads for Drano all over it including the background space on both sides! There were a total of 4 Drano ads (2 very large) on one hub. Yuck. Anyone else see this?
I can't say that I have Janet, which is intriguing. What hub is it on? I'd love to see what it looks like.
Perhaps it's geo-targeted, I'm not seeing anything. Will keep an eye out though.
I'm seeing three ads urging me to play Midas Miner Speed on a particular games site. NB I'm in the UK
Janet - I know exactly what you are talking about. I saw that the other day. I'm not even sure which hub it was. The Drano add covered the background on each side of the main body of the hub. I had never seen that before.
see the official announcement here:
I think it is ridiculous what Adsense does to our articles with their ads. We are to produce quality content, but they can slap 5 billboard signs all over our articles.
Advertisers pay content sites and content producers, like you, because they want visitors to take notice of ads. Yes, it would be nice to have subtle, unobtrusive ads, but if no one notices them, then why would an advertiser pay for them?
Our ad layout is much less aggressive than the top destination sites on the Web, but if you really don't want your visitors to see as many ads, and your content is not commercial (i.e. if it doesn't link out to a site that you have an interest in), you can feel free to lower the ad level. Of course, you will most certainly earn less money by doing so.
Well technically if you think about the hub you posted on Mario, the storyline is that he is portrayed as a plumber defeating creatures coming out of the sewers in NY.
I had to laugh though when I saw the ad's. I think that anyone who knows the Super Mario storyline would see how the ad's might relate, even though its just a video game.
I also clicked on a Hub earlier that had the Drano add across the background. Pretty weird!
Janet: The ads are on the sidebar, not actually in your hub interrupting it. like I see a lot of.

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...

Initially perplexed and frustrated, I have quickly decided Hubpages have brilliant web content protection. They blocked a hub I started to write from generating advertising revenue. Why is this good? Well, as genuine as the hub was, relating to Christmas and presents and my teenage daughter, it was...

I wrote a hub about the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile after my family saw it in person. Now I get a notice saying that it is possibly going to be unpublished due to adult content. I can't find any adult content at all--this hub is just fun and history. Can you see what is wrong with...
