I am curious as to why, on my most recent hub, Google ads were displaying and now suddenly are not displaying? There are no symbols next to the hub listing on my stats page saying ads disabled or anything. Any thoughts out there?
Google can in each case decide whether or not to display ads on your hub. In this case, I find it understandable if they decide not to. The title of your hub is "The Sex-Saturated Internet and Google Ads."
Why would that be, Website Examiner? Shoot if that is the case I will take it down and post it elsewhere, lol. I would think it is because it has the word "sex" in it? Nothing dirty or porn, but censorship for sure. I wrote about a valid situation and give proof in the screen shots. Simple facts.
Google's foremost - in fact its only - concern is to please the advertisers. It is a very conservative enterprise when it comes to content. Mentioning Google and Sex in the title (and contents?) may well explain it. But the fact is that Google does not guarantee it will run ads just because you have not disabled them.
Actually, I am just going to take it down. No need for further comment here. I will post it on one of my websites.
Well, I have left sites over censorship, and to me, to post an informative article about an ongoing reality and have Google decide to censor it, well, that does not sit well with me. In reality it was not a hub to gain clicks, but to share information about a service that is heavily associated with HP.
I don't think Google AdSense will treat the contents differently, regardless on what site the article is posted on. But there are other members with more expertise in that issue than I have.
The site I have just moved it to does not have Google AdSense. I am surprised that they did not pull the ads from my hub about Google Chrome, lol. Thanks for the heads up. I have viewed other hubs with the word "sex" in the title.... no Google Ads. So at least I know now. Hope you have a great weekend, Website Examiner. Always good to see you in comments in the forum and on the hubs!

I'm considering moving a couple of hubs that were mostly read by UK users to my blog. At least then I'll be able to display ads to both tracked and untracked readers.

I had a chuckle...My butter tart recipe had 5 Google ads on that I would say were not really appropriate for a recipe hub. They were not bad just not fitting I would think. Such as 'Sexy Chicks bare all', ' Executive wife bares all', and the big bright orange one that went straight across,...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads disabled based on automatic filters. This problem I reported in order to have...
