How to solve the Adsense problem?

 5:14 pm on Jun 12, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi Friend,

I have several sites running Adsense. Two of my sites are for home business, and the Adsense ads can show the related home business ads correctly. But one of my sites is for b2b contents, but the Adsense always shows home business ads on it. I have repeatedly changed the keywords on this b2b site---all keywords are b2b-related, no home business-related keywords, and the site contents have no home business links, but the Adsense still shows home business-related ads.

How to solve the problem?

Please help!

Thank you very much!

Are both sites under the same domain name or cross linked extensively?

Thank you spaceylacie for help!

Each of my sites has its own domain and unique URL. And, I have modified the keywords on every site, to make sure that each site has its own keywords and its unique contents. But all the time on all my sites the Adsense always show home business ads.

How to solve this Adsense problem?

Please advise more!

Thank you very much!

I use the only one Adsense account to put the Adsense ads on my different sites.

And there are no cross links extensively between my home business sites and my b2b site. No internal links, too. But the Adsense shows the same home business Ads on my home business sites as well as on my b2b site.

Please help!

Could it be that Adsense actually sniffs what you have been looking for and shows those ad to the user viewing the adsense block. Could be the Google toolbar or maybe some cookie method.

So since you viewed a page on "Home business" you are being shown those ads. A different user may see different ads depending on his history of search of page views.

It may not be your content, it may just need to be crawled again. Check out the following link about the time it takes to recrawl your content.


So, that being said, maybe you just need to wait a bit longer for more relavant ads to start appearing.

Hope this helps!

Hi roycerus,

Thanks for help!

What I guess is the same as yours: "Maybe Adsense actually sniffs what you have been looking for and shows those ad to the user viewing the adsense block."

But why Adsense sniffs? What is the adsense block?

More help needed!

Hi thinkaholic,

Thanks for help!

All my sites has run Adsense for nearly a month only. Maybe all the sites need to be crawled again. Is 30 days enough to be crawled again? I have 3 PC with different Ip, and I use zone alarm pro to strict cookies. But three pc show all the same home business Adsense ads on my different sites.

Need more advice please!

I do not use Google Toolbar on my PCs. I do not like and do not use any toolbars on all my PCs' browsers.

Still the same home biz Adsense are showing up on all my sites, with different PCs.

Need advice please!

Well... didn't think adsense has come to behavorial advertising as yet [its contextual] so possible conclusions:

1) Does the URL of your b2b has anything related to home business [home-biz.html]? URL's are important. Try changing your URL name to force a re-index as it will become a new page for the adsense bot.

2) Have you copied some part [meta tags/ structure] which still have home business stuff on it?

3) Check for keyword density. You can find some online tools if you search for "keyword density tool" on google. See which keywords have the highest density.

Do the URL name change test anyway and wait a few minutes.

Hope this helps figuring out the problem.

Here's a good keyword density checker.



 7:08 pm on Jun 12, 2005 (gmt 0)

Thank you roycerus and thinkaholic for help!

The b2b URL is unuque, without home business connotation. The meta tags/ structure of the b2b site is different from all other sites. (I keep different meta tags/ structure on each site.)

Ok, the b2b site includes these keywords: b2b exchange trade leads global trade business opportunities internet markets trade resources.

You guys are right, highly probably the word density is lack, or other issues. I'll resubmit each site so they can be reindex for the adsense bot. I'll wait for several days to see some result.

Thank you friends for help!

You could try a test run on browsercam (just google for it) to see what other people see on your site. That might help to show that other people aren't seeing inappropriate ads?

Thank you leadegroot for help!

I'll try browsercam to test the Adsense ads on all sites, hoping to get clues.

weble, let us know what happens with your tests. Since they are separate domains, not cross linked(or just not extensively cross linked?), I'm baffled.

The only conclusion I see... Even one link from one site to another can cause a change in the ads shown. If one keyword is much more popular than another... Google algos think that since you linked to that other site(even once), your sites must be related.

I agree with roycerus. Google deals in contextual advertising, not behavorial. At least, I haven't heard anything from Google about this yet. I will be picking brains in New Orleans a week from Tuesday, however. A question/answer meeting with real Google Guys.

Are the sites linked at all?

I once had a problem with ads, not entirely removed from what you describe. I contacted Google with an explanation of the problem, not really expecting a solution but anticipating that they might be able to use the information for future improvement of their algorithm. They replied by indicating that they had "recalibrated" my site, and to let them know if the problem recurred. So if I were in your shoes, I would send feedback to AdSense support, just to be sure (a) that the problem isn't at their end (in which case waiting to be spidered again won't be much help), and (b) that the problem is not one subject to immediate correction (in which case waiting for the spider to revisit serves nobody's ends).

Use few keywords to work well in AdSense - don't use "free"; and make sure and have relevant text on the page.

Thats a good point, hyperkik - I had a weird problem on my original adsense site where the ads just weren't displaying.
I contacted google and they told me they had reset something and everything has been fine since.
Might be time to drop them a line. :)
