Just to let staff know that there are sound adverts on some hubs. I just found one at the very bottom of this hub - http://billyaustindillon.hubpages.com/h … Suez-Canal - although I appreciate adverts are localised and many others maybe won't see this ad. I'm in the UK.
It seems to be advertising Dettol and Legoland.
There was a similar post the other day and HP staff had given an email addy to report this to, but I can't find it, lol. I will keep an eye out for it.
I found the post by Jason:
They shouldn't be there. If it's the bottom ad unit, it's Google AdSense. Next time you see an ad like this, please take a screenshot and send it to adops@ so we can investigate.
I hope that was email@example.com, because that is where I sent it! Many thanks, Dale
Edit: mailer-daemon returned it. Hmmm...
I was not sure either, but that was all that was given, lol.
You could mail it to team@hubpages and ask them to give you the actual address so that you could do it right the next time.
Just heard it again on another hub. It is an advert for Dettol, but this advert position was the one below the hubbername to the right.
Auto-audio ads are not allowed on HubPages. Without a report that shows us which network (out of many) is serving this particular ad though, the only recourse we have is to contact all of them. When we identify the network responsible, the ad can be blacklisted.
Sorry that you're seeing the annoying audio ad; we don't like them either and it's frustrating when they slip in. Send firstname.lastname@example.org more details if you can (links of Hubs, time/day, browser). I'm also curious if this ad was seen only in the UK or in the US as well.
I think, hubpages should just find a lasting solution to all these annoying adverts. We are in here to make good money.

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views yield ad impressions so only 35% of our views gives us earnings. If you get 1000...

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I have a featured hub here: http://thomasswan.hubpages.com/hub/Onli … s-with-NPDThere is room for the ad below the picture, and I have ads turned on, but no ad is appearing. The ads in the sidebar are appearing, but not the adsense in the body of the...

This probably isn't a bug, but it's annoying and I wish Hubpages wouldn't do it. There is an ad which plays sound appearing on some of my hubs. I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a crowd cheering. The ad is also one which appears right at the bottom of the page,...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...

I don't like my pages - they look spammy. Too many adverts - just like any other garbage site that personally, I would back arrow out of.Try logging out and viewing your own pages. Worth sharing with a friend? Look at my adverts - there's some content in there somewhere.Below is...
