    I just noticed my article site stuck with displaying irrelevant ads. I tried to test my friends adsense code but it displayed relevant ads. Does anyone knows how to fix this?

    thanks,

    You can go in and remove sites using filtering...may impact your revenue though.

    The publisher code used on the site has no affect on the ads displayed, so using your friend's code won't help.

    Improve your ad relevancy with these tips:
    • decent keywords in title, URL and H1-6
    • good use of meta description and meta keywords tags
    • section targeting around content, or to ignore navigation
    • add links to authoritative sites using href title="..." tags
    • use good keywords when linking to your site
    • strong internal linking strategy, e.g. link related articles
    • put (occasional) keywords in bold or italic
    • make sure that your html code is properly validated
    • block MFA and/or low-paying ads with adsblacklist.com (mileage will vary)
    • be patient! it can take up to 2 weeks for any changes you make to be noticed
    If you're still stuck, then give us your URL for us to look at.

    Cryo.

    Try to adjust your content and keywords - although I usually get all relavent ads but on occaision I get something whacky in there - maybe an advertiser has targeted one of your keywords and thats why the bogus ad shows up.

    Hi guys sorry for the late response.

    Wow, for a second there I thought I was on Digg!

    As suggested above, use section targeting.

    AdSense seems to be pulling the non-relevant ads from your "Most Recent Articles" section at the bottom of the home page and the "Additional Articles From" section on your single pages. The text is in those areas are have nothing to do with "article submissions".

    Use: <!-- google_ad_section_start --> and <!-- google_ad_section_end --> for the content on the single pages and maybe the welcome block on the home page.

    I tried your example above and I got all "home business" type of ads on all 3 of your ad blocks.

    Seems to be working. Are you geo targeting any of these ads?

    I've run threw about 5-6 of the inner pages, all seem to be targeted.

    The funniest one I saw was in the "Men Issues" section.. lot's of "Enlargement" type of ads ;)

    And by Geo target, I meant that the relevant ads shown for me because in my location. i.e. Canada. I think I need another coffee ;)

    Your homepage looks to be the only problem as far as I can see. Most of your text on that page comes from the "Most Recent Articles" and AdSense is using that block for it's ads. Have you tried the ignore section targeting?

    Put:

    <!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) -->

    Right BEFORE "<div class="morearticles">Most Recent Articles</font>"

    And then put:

    <!-- google_ad_section_end(weight=ignore) -->

    Right AFTER "<!-- End of Main Content -->"

    At least using that will eliminate the "Most Recent Articles" text block and might help with more relevant ads on the homepage.

    Could take up to a week for the bot to re-crawl the site and read the new ignore targets. Good luck!
