Where do you put in your keywords?

I just signed up for Google Adsense, and maybe I missed it, but where do you enter the keywords of the ad's you'd like displayed, that are related to your site?

Can this be done or do you have no choice what ad's are displayed on your site?

We go beyond simple keyword matching to understand the context and content of web pages. Based on a sophisticated algorithm that includes such factors as keyword analysis, word frequency, font size, and the overall link structure of the web, we know what a page is about, and can precisely match Google ads to each page

[google.com...]

PF, yes you missed something :)

the engineering team at Google will be pulling their hair out if they see this.

The choice is in the text on your pages. The relevant keywords are determined automatically.

From the adsense FAQ:
2. How does Google target ads to my website? [google.com]

Oops, I tried just adding the code into a blank html file, so this would be why. :)

I'm gonna plug it into my website now and see what happens.

Guess I should have tried this first, hehe, thanks Shak, bird. :)

Hmm, plugged into my website with all the music related keywords, I'm still getting the same funky ad's.

Does the HTML file have to be uploaded to my domain?

Yup!

You can think of it this way. Google places ads on your website almost the same way it ranks in the search engines (kinda). Meaning, If your websites is about blue widgets then it is going to display ads about blue widgets. How does it do this? By sending out a spider called "Mediapartner Goolge", that analizes your each webpage to know what it is about. So if you are testing the code from your office computer and not on the actual domain, then you are not going to see the same ads as if it was on your domain.
