Congratulations Jema.

What do you reckon got you in? Did you ask Google, or did they just invite you out of the blue?

Had you been complaining about poor targeting?

Or do you think it was just down to your traffic level?

What's google_hints?

Override contextual targetting by telling google what keywords a page relates to.

Has to be traffic level. As I'm in the top 30,000 sites according to Alexa. Sure as hell is not income!

Hints are a good idea: If I had them and they worked, I might still be using AdSense on my home page and root-directory pages. (I gave up after getting tired of ads for New York and San Diego on a European travel site.)

hints must not be bigger than 1024 chars (from adsense support)

I'm doing way over a million page impressions per month.
I guess this is not enough to make the 'google_hints' grade )-:
