Those articles that have had Adsense removed from them....

I am not in the habit of going over my articles on a regular basis. So, when I scrolled through one today, after responding to a comment, I was surprised to find that Adsense ad were no longer being shown.

Now I am not complaining, as it may be, in some alternate Universe, classed as Adult: http://wizzley.com/writing-nude-focus-your-mind-to-the-task-of-writing/ .

What would have been nice is to have been told which of my (our) articles were affected by the Adsense removal. Perhaps an indication somewhere on our statistics page.

What do you think?

OK here's a dumb question for you - How can you tell which ads are adsense?

The ones at the top right of your articles if you don't have Chikita ads sets up (in your settings page).

Chitika

 

 

 

Adsense

 

-----

I agree with Chaz that it should be notified somewhere - perhaps something similar to the warning symbol shown when an article needs revising?

I should have said I don't have Chitika. When I hover it says google.com yada yada yada. Is that Adsense?

Sorry but in our panic over possibly losing AdSense we took measures without first building some kind of notification code. Only a handful 'borderline' articles were affected by that.

With regard to such 'borderline' topics, I have no idea what Google's AdSense customers may consider unacceptable. So I may have produced a few knee-jerk reactions. Your insistence on 10 x "writing nude" on a page doesn't make my job any easier.

Chef, that article was written as a tongue-in-cheek article. I do not expect to earn from it. I don't care if it has Adsense or not. I am not arguing for Adsense to be re-instated for the article.

What I think would be appropriate though is for there to be some indication for author's that Adsense has been removed from an article. The only way for someone to be aware at present is to monitor every article they have written (on a regular basis, perhaps). 

Just want a flag somewhere (on statistics?) to indicate which are Adsense non-compliant now. 

For me, I could then determine whether to remove them, thus saving any inconvenience for Wizzley.

If you are saying that there is no way to comply with this request, then so be it.

From comments that I have read elsewhere (and I am not sure how accurate they were)  things that might cause problems on adsense could be written in an innocent way but might also have another meaning.

Also,  I read that there is a list of words that if you use them trigger problems with Google adsense is that myth or true? (BTW I do not mean obvious things like swear words.) 

So what do you think, is that likely to be true? Undecided

( I guess that I am probably over thinking on this.) 

 As you would let us know if this was true. Smile

I got it, I got it, Chaz. Maybe Simon has an idea on doing this in a quick and easy way. Maybe we don't need it.

But as I said - only a handful (5?) of stray articles have been affected by this frantic action from a few weeks ago. The main culprits have been notified about it.

From now on we mark these types of articles for corrections, or we'll send an AdSense-removal message to the author. Back then we didn't have time for coding something to that effect. Now we have the time to write notifications if needed.

Sue - check out "Content Guidelines" on this article (open the "full view" drop-down menu). You shouldn't have anything to worry about.

Thank you,  I have book marked the page for reference but from looking at it you are right, no problems.

Hey Chaz, if you like we can send you a list of concerned articles. I don't know, though, if there are more than the one you've mentioned in your account. I think that's rather a one-time-ever problem and implementing a special feature for it shouldn't be necessary.

Chef, you're being way too hard on yourself with your adjectives and adverbs. Losing adsense and perhaps jeopardizing others' adsense accounts is a huge deal. I for one appreciate the urgency you felt when making these decisions. I wouldn't say that you "panicked' or were "frantic" etc. This is a major issue that dealt a financial impact to many of us. I'm glad that you erred on the side of caution when tagging Wizzles that might cause a problem. This isn't just something that affects the Wizzle in question, but as we saw before can affect all of us. So thank you again - and don't be so hard on yourself.

Simon, if that was the only one, I'm fine. And if there were only 5'ish 'culprits' then there is no big deal after all. It was really a matter of 'how many' - now I know I'm OK, thanks.
