AdSense related to backlinks?

AdSense previewing ads that seem more related to backlinks than page text

I run a fairly large site in the financial industry. I've been thinking about setting up some AdSense on the page, but when I ran the preview tool, it was showing travel ads. There's nothing in the content that would even hint to travel. I checked it on a few competitors and they all came up with financial ads. Could it be related to a chunk of my more powerful backlinks coming from some travel related websites?

Has anyone else ever seen anything like this?

Until the AdSense mediabot actually visits your pages you will not get an accurate reading of what ads will show up.

The only way to really tell is to add the code and then give them a week or so to get your pages figured out.

Good luck!
