Why were ads disabled on my article?
If one of your articles has been identified, a warning will appear on the article itself and in the Hubs section of My Account. We periodically review articles that have been caught by the filter and do one of three things:
- For clear-cut policy violations, we will unpublish the article. Repeated violations may result in the closing of your HubPages account.
- For articles that are not clear violations but that contain sensitive content that is not advertiser-friendly, we may leave ads disabled but allow the article to remain published
- For articles identified in error, we may override the filter, allowing ads to appear again.
If you agree with the assessment or so choose, you can remove the warning that appears on your article by turning ads off.
We recognize that the rules may change from time to time and are subject to some speculation and interpretation. The policy of disabling ads on borderline and sensitive content gives us the leeway to allow quality articles to remain published without ads.
In partnership with our advertising partners, we've identified below some areas that are not suitable for advertising but that, at our discretion, we may allow to remain published without ads:
- Reproductive medical content (including vaginal and penile issues and sexually transmitted diseases)
- Content about sexuality, including losing your virginity or fetish content
- Content about abortion, circumcision, genital mutilation, rape, incest, pedophilia, and molestation
- Content describing violent crimes, gruesome accidents, or self mutilation
- Lewd or profane humor, including provocative double entendre
- Restrained journalistic or fine art nudity
If the content of your article falls into one of these areas, please turn ads off.
Ads can also not appear even when they are enabled in these circumstances.
- You have just published your article and it is still "Pending" as it is reviewed by our Quality Assessment Process (which may take up to 48 hours).
- The Google bot has evaluated your article, and feels that the content may be in violation of the Google AdSense Program Policy.
