Thanks in advance,
You may want to refresh/reload your browser a few times after you have setup Ad Targeting.
Ad Targeting really helps in the process of receiving relevant ads. You may also want to use your Block List to filter our ads you don't want. I have found that once you do this, more relevant ads begin to appear almost immediately.
I removed ad targeting after an hour or so to see what happened overnight. Some pages are targeted. Most are not. So I guess I'll keep ad targeting after all. It's a pain because it is time consuming (I have several areas) and ads are very general.
I've blocked several urls and the ads just keep coming. I think the FAQ says 1-2 days so I'll try to be patient but I'm also getting the mortgage and cable ads. Not good at all for my site. I'll be lucky to get any clicks with those.
I haven't been banned from AS. As I said, I'm experimenting. I had one click from Yahoo yesterday and it has brought in much mnore than any single AS click I've gotten to date. I think I'll try to stick it out a while longer.
Then we put our thinking caps on and when we add YPN to a new content area we assign about 1/10th of impressions to YPN. We wait until we see targeted YPN ads then increase their impressions to 50%.
