Which URLs do you usually filter from Adsense?

    For whatever reason what URLs do you usually filter from Adsense?

    I usually want to filter general shopping sites that have nothing to do with the Asian market.

    Mine are
    eBay
    Target
    FTD
    shopping.com
    expedia.com


    I just find the ones that autowrap the name to it are usually not interesting enough for people to actually want to click.

    So what are some of yours?

    I filter Democrats. :D

    Seriously, every time I filter out the new round of Democratic/Liberal advertisements, my CTR and CPM go up.

    Slowly new ads seep into the system and my CTR/CPM fall. Then I filter the bad ads and the process begins anew.

    I filter any ads that have absolutely nothing to do with my site and only make that advertising space ugly.

    Who would go to a buddy icons site and click on an ad for greek sculptures??

    Ebay was the first one I filtered, if your not a member at google now you aren't going to be.

    I generally filter out competitors web sites and have a list of 10 or so.

    List of 10? Luck you, I have 28 filtered right now, and every couple of days I check my site and find a totally unrelated crappy ad there... why don't people learn how to pick their keywords??

    I filter out the competition. That's about it.

    HAH!

    I love it. I actually have some "conservative leaning" sites that I love the libbie ads on, because other conservatives like costing the libbies money without having to do anything besides "click" :D

    But seriously, I'm filtering any ads that have phone numbers in them, I hate those.
