Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Yes, I see public service ads mostly, but sometimes targeted ones come in on the main forum page. I was hoping it was just because I just put them in and it was "learning."
Just how does Goggle go about figuring out what would go on a dynamic page, and does it take a while for it to figure it out?
My best advise for you would be find a way to build static pages for your forums like WebmasterWorld does with their forums.
Search Engines love it and AdSense loves it!
Google already does well-targeted ads for my home page (jsut started yesterday with them). Will they figure out that the discussion forum that is associated with it in the site would be the same audience? Can I just tell them that and they hard-code it?
If your discussion boards use session IDs, all you will show is public service ads, unless the same person happens to visit the same thread more than once during the same session, and only if the AdSense bot has managed to spider it within that time.
And depending on the type of dynamic URLs your forum displays, AdSense might only show PSAs, even without session IDs in use.
Just keep an eye on it, and make sure you are showing something other than PSAs after the bots visit each thread. And it is true, you don't get paid for those ads, no matter how many times they are clicked ;)
