- Using the Hubpages Ad Program: The Pros and Cons
What is the value of the Hubpages Ad Program? Should you use it? Will you make money with it? Most of all is it worth it?
The Arrogance of Google
First off, the google ads on this hub as in all hubs that have activated adsense accounts display google ads of course. What happens though if an writer has/had an adsense account suspended? Please read on about the dark side of google adsense. This tale has been played out by many victims. The irony is all you have to do is "google" adsense account suspended. Its almost a self- incrimination thing.
Ever heard of not putting all your eggs in one basket? Don't depend on earnings from the google adsense program. Try other programs to make money. I found out I was not alone when google canceled my account with no explanation.
There is many first hand accounts on people that have had their accounts disabled without them being told why. Check out youtube and search for "adsense account disabled". You will come upon many testimonials from people whose acounts have been blocked. The kicker is google refuses to explain to people why this has happened.
When you try to log onto your account a message pops up saying your account has been suspended but if you email them they will get back with you and tell you why and reconsider unsuspending your account. I have emailed them many, many times over the months with no replies. Goggle has become a monster company and in doing so, has become arrogant with very little customer service skills.
This has also made me change my phone from an android to an apple phone because when they suspended my google account I lost all the apps I bought under my google account.
I have read about a few lawsuits against google because once your account is canceled they keep the money they owe you. One person filed a suit against google and won. Here is the story.
What I think is the ultimate injustice is, google canceled my account but still puts ads on my hubpages and is making money off of my writing and doesn’t have to share any profit with me!
I had contacted hubpages and evidently there is no way I can turn off google ads without turning off the hubpage ad program.
The book that explains the "Dark" side of Google
Google, to me, is not an honest company and the sheer size of this entity has led them to monopolize certain segments of the internet. Google is everything that is wrong with corporate America where they feel rules don't apply to themselves. I consider myself a Republican when I say this. A profitable business is good for everyone, consumers, workers, the company itself until the company becomes so huge that it loses it's focus of their customers needs and wants.
