It has Joomla CMS using PHP.
The site is a few years old and well spidered.
The Adsense units are not at all targeted and I fear that because the urls constantly change each time an article is called up, Google will be unable to index and post targeted ads.
Is there anything I can do?
Your best bet is the suggestion to use the SEF add-on, but I would add that some of my sites don't use this and still receive perfectly targetted ads.
Thanks for that, I've installed 404SEF and got this message
Unable to create .htaccess file in your Mambo root. Please create this file yourself and add the following lines
RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php
What do I need to do?
Upload it to your joomla root directory.
Make sure you get rid of any file that is called htaccess.txt
In your Joomla admin section: Site/Global Configuration/ SEO - make sure "Search Engine Friendly URLs:" is set to YES.
Then, go to Components/404SEF/Configuration
Enable? = YES
Adjust other options to suit your needs.
Pages that are seldom viewed do seem to lose targeting, but I think that may happen no matter how the page is written - CMS or no CMS.
How do you place the adlinks exactly where you want them. Mine are automatically placed at the bottom, and only one. I'd lke to place mine in the middle and sometimes more than one.
