Since the HubPages page layout changed somewhat, I've noticed some ads appearing at the bottom which have unexpected and to me annoying audio. I put music to some of my own videos and the ad audio is competing. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there anything realistically that might be done about it?
I haven't noticed it yet, but I hope I don't have any on my hubs. I think I have found the autoplay videos and I was afraid I'd accidentally clicked on my own ad. What's really bad about these is if you don't close your browser window after commenting on a hub you've read, it may start playing after you leave and then you have to look through your open windows to find the annoying audio and shut it down.
I hope these auto-audio ads merely slipped through the cracks as I hate 'em! I will have to loudly protest--surprise, surprise--if I find any of these obnoxious ads on my hubs!
They definitely slipped through the cracks! We do not allow auto-audio ads on HubPages.
By the way, this is a duplicate thread, so those interested please follow (and add information to) this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/99841
I noticed this on a hub just recently. I has just started watching someone's video creation which had nice, soothing music accompanying it, but as the video started a woman's voice started advertising something and there was discordant music competing with the video's music. I couldn't figure out what was going on at first, and I almost left the hub because the mixture of sounds was so unpleasant.
Seems to me that Google would really, really hate any sites that have auto-playing audio ads...

I was wondering, when you view the total views ever for hubs published. Aren't you supposed to receive an accolade indicating this, or have your views accolade changed from, lets say 1000 to 10,000 views for example. I...
