Earlier I posted about the RSS feed not showing in my top hub, and that has finally resolved itself.
Now I am experiencing an issue that is costing me revenue. This hub is getting well over 1,000 hits a day (I realize that is not a lot, but for me it is, lol.)
http://dalehyde.hubpages.com/hub/Hurric … -and-Names
If you view this hub you will see that 15 seconds after the page fully loads and displays Google Ads, the ads simply disappear.
I have viewed this hub in Chrome as a logged in member and half the ads will do this.
I then went to Firefox, IE and Palemoon browsers and the same is happening only ALL the ads will disappear. In these browsers there is no ad block and I was not signed into HubPages.
The Google ads disappearing on a hub that is getting pretty good traffic is well costing me in revenue for sure.
I need someone to look at this hub and see what is going on.
Note: I have been seeing this for several days, but just felt it was a simple browser issue and did not leave the page up and do the timing until today.
Edit: This is now happening on ALL of my hubs that I am checking!
Dale, although this forum is called "Report a Problem", HubPages have said that staff do NOT monitor it regularly and it's not the right way to report a problem. It's really important to report a major problem like this by emailing the team immediately.
Thanks for reporting this. There was a momentary bug on our end, and it should be fixed now (as of 4:30pm PST). Please send firstname.lastname@example.org an email if the problem persists.
Thank you Marina for the response and good news. I will check my hubs, and as suggested, if the problem persists, I shall email the addy you have shared.
Thanks, Dale Hyde for sending out the e-mail and giving staff the heads up...what a nasty bug!
I had this problem earlier, too. But my ads now appear to be loading and staying on the page. Thanks for checking into this for us.
lol I've never seen this happen before. But I agree, ads disappear after a while.
Have you checked your own hubs, Haunty? I am working my way through mine and it is happening with all so far in all the browsers I have referenced.
Yes, I've checked one of mine and it's happening on there too. I hope this gets fixed soon.
The ads that do not disappear are not Google ads.
Yes I see this on your hub but my hubs also have the same problem and I am based in the UK. Looks like a site wide bug!
I noticed this with mine, too. I viewed other folks' work and noticed ads pulled the same disappearing act.
Have you tried logging out?
I looked at one of my hubs while logged in and the Google ads did indeed disappear after 15 seconds or so. I logged out and looked at the same hub again, and the ads stayed.
Yes EmpressFelicity, I did try this but I am still having the problem. Also, as mentioned, in the other browsers that I am viewing the problem in, I was never signed in.
Sorry, I missed the bit where you said you were logged out. That'll teach me to skim read.
Perhaps one of the staff will come along and enlighten us. Or maybe not.
1000 views a day would be A LOT for me and I would be sick if my ads were disappearing from a hub with traffic like that.
My ads are disappearing too, and there's another thread about it on the Hubbers' Hangout forum, where others are saying it's happening to their hubs, as well.
Wow! Is there anything else that we're gonna get hit with??? Thanks for the heads up, Dale. I checked my Hubs, but my ads are all intact. But at the same time, I'm no heavy hitter when it comes to making money through my Google ads! Earnings? What earnings??? I'm only a dollar-a-day Hubber, and that's it!
Whoooops! For some reason, I went back and checked. Yes, my Google ads are disappearing, too!!!
Everybody please note - HubPages have said they do not monitor the forums and that the "Report a Problem" forum is NOT for reporting problems.
It beats me why they bother having a forum called "Report a Problem" if that's not what it's for, but it seems they would rather have every single Hubber email them individually than have a place where we can report centrally. Their choice - so please everyone, send them an individual email on this.
How strange. I was just reading a hub about the summer Olympics and the ad disappeared. What is going on, has there been any kind of staff response?
I haven't checked my hubs today, except one that I tweeted this morning. I did notice that when I clicked on the hub, there was no ad. But when I checked it this afternoon, the ads were there.
I would think with this thread title, someone from staff has noticed it.
Hello rebekahELLE. Not sure why the slow response to this issue, but I feel the email thing is a wise choice to try to get some attention to a very important issue for sure.
It takes about 15 to 20 seconds for the ads to suddenly disappear... Like the magick I write about, lol! Must be a Web Gremlin waving a magickal wand!
No staff response as of yet to my email, this thread or the one other thread mentioned here.
I'm thinking if we all start emailing HP separately about all these little glitches they will decide it's easier to assign someone to glance over this forum a few times over the course of each day. I would think that would be preferable to having their mailboxes jammed up with a bunch of people reporting the same problems over and over. One person emailing on behalf of everyone doesn't seem to make an impact.

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...

Why does a picture disappear when resizing in MS Word?Apparently I'm not the only one with this issue as I've seen it on around the net, but nobody ever answers the question, nor do they help solve the problem. I have a picture that refuses to resize without... disappearing, not even in the print...

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...
