A while back, I had a post on my website mentioning whales. I have a lot of crap on my site, but for some reason, adsense latched onto the whale reference, and now half the ads are for whale watching, and other whale related stuff.
I deleted any and all references to whales on my site, but the whale ads keep coming, even weeks later.
NOBODY is interested in these whale ads. They're not all from the same advertiser, or else I'd just add them to my blacklist. Somehow my site has been associated permanently with whales.
How can I get rid of these aquatic ads without actually harming any whales?

It has been said that if you change some aspect of your AdSense ads (like border color), this will cause the media-bot to return and look at the page again. Once the aquatic ads disappear, change back to the ad format you like.
Targeting can be very frustrating at times. I have one page that has the word 'relationship' on it and that page gets ads relating to online dating and 'relationship stuff'. Of course the page has absolutely nothing to do with the ads, other than the word 'relationship'.
