I was just commenting on someone's hub, and started hearing voices touting a product. I scrolled down and the advertisement at the bottom was a video clip, yammering away at me to buy somehtign or other.
People have had a lot to say about videos at the start of hubs that autoplay - and, yes, I agree they can be annoying - but is there anything we can do about these AdSense-served annoyances?
Hmm!! That would be horrible reading something and being told to buy something else.. If it was me I'd bounce of the page and that's not good!
Thanks for reporting this, RedElf.
Did you happen to remember anything about the appearance of the ad? Did it have a little blue triangle in the upper right hand corner? That usually means it's AdSense. As for the video ad itself: did the volume auto-play? Did the ad unit expand to a larger size?
I'm not sure that the ad you saw was served up by AdSense, necessarily, so I'd like to get some more detail!
I only turn on my computer volumn when I have something to listen to. Otherwise the computer is on mute. Too many sites have this annoying garbage. I know, I know. Now you can't listen to Pandora and surf now.

I must have missed an announcement, but I have noticed a section down the right side of my hubs (as well as other hubs) and along the bottom called "related ads". I haven't clicked on them as that is a no-no, but am curious what they bring up. There also seem to be a lot more...

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...

I have noticed that the three Google ads that appear at the bottom of each hub look very much as though they are part of the hub itself. I am wondering whether this could be a reason why some HP members have had their Adsense account disabled, because if you put a link of your own at the bottom of...

I was browsing my hubs tonight and ran across several "auto-play" video ads that are being displayed at the bottom of the page. This totally is not cool as I have videos on many of my hubs and these types of ads start playing over my video content. The one specific ad that I...

Welcome to Hubpages.I received my first ad click in the first few weeks I was here.The more content I post the more the amount of clicks have increased. I did not start seeing any clicks until I started receiving traffic from search engines.
