Section targeting tags no more?
I used these tags a few years ago, not entirely with any success.

Hi All,

I used the section targeting tags a while back, not entirely sure how effective they are. I've noticed that the Google help page describing how to use them (useful to copy/paste) seems to have disappeared. Have they now been depreciated - anyone have any knowledge or experience to share on the subject?

I looked for em recently too and couldn't find them. Thinking that with personalization and interest based ads, maybe they have been deprecated.

Thinking the same, no fanfare or warning though. Mind you, not entirely convinced that they did what they were supposed to do.

I think G only used them as a VERY loose "suggestion" when the bots had trouble targeting ads. Now I'm sure they are ignored.

I dunno, back in the old days my two word domain had an issue with AdSense targeting the wrong word; I used the section targeting to emphasize the location instead of the noun, and suddenly got a flood of really great local ads. I think they must have helped with that. Kinda sad to see em go, if in fact they have. I probably still have them in my code; I'd have to look.
