Currently we are not using the MediaPartners-Google Robot Rule. Will using this help us out. Has anyone found that using the AdSense robots.txt rule helped?
They say to add this line:
Where in the below robots.txt would you place it?
This is what we are using
# Welcome to SiteName.com
# and thanks for asking about our robot rules
Also, how do you edit the subject line? made a typo and can't change it!~ :0
If you do decide to make changes, be sure to run your robots.txt through the validator here before unleashing it on your site.
I had session IDs on some of my pages, and with every page view, the AdSense bot would come along behind it to get the page URL - including the session ID. Because it considered each URL with a SID a unique URL, it would only show PSA ads, unless the person with that SID happened to revisit that page during the same session. I removed all session IDs from those pages, and AdSense has been showing targeted ads ever since.
And a mod will have to come along to correct the title :)
How do I get pages like this more spider friendly?
Most of these pages have a lot of great content and none of the AdSense Ads will work at present.
Is there something you could recommend to transform URls like this into something AdSense Friendly? A perl program or a re-write what's the best option?
Yours appear to be dynamic. The AdSense FAQ says "Form-loaded content, dynamic content... cannot be used to target ads to your pages." From the looks of your link, it seems that this applies. Can you contact with the techies who programmed it?
There are ways to make dynamic URLs static, but it is too far out of my area of expertise ;) You might also try in one of the programming forums here - I know I have seen threads on the active list recently that deal with turning dynamic URLs into static ones.
I got all the pages changed from dynamic to static through a backend script that the programmers had developed.
The pages now look like this
The AdSense is now working!
