So I'm running a flashy site which is basically about games and wallpapers for not so long now. The low income and not yet so relevant ads do not bug me yet cause the site's still new. But I'm planning to enrich it with two new games and that usually results with 10+ times more traffic because of how the link to the game quickly gets around all the blog/link type sites. So I'd like to have that AdSense figured out by then.
Like I said the whole site and content (games) is in flash and there's no google-bots crawling in the swf file looking for text. So what I done so far is I've put some "about me and the site...blah-blah" style text in the meta and another copy in the body's <--! --> that flash makes automatically when generating the html file. But the description differs from what the viewers might see on the site so I don't know how legal is that in the eyes of google.
So my second choice is to put little descriptions under the flash site and every game that somehow will have to direct the ads and because it will be something the viewer can read - it will be safely within the terms of AdSense. But of course I want the descriptions well balanced with the design of the site - read: I want them short ... so I ask (maybe a little unethically) - does anyone know how to arrange words to make some keywords more attractive for google-bots then others. As for all I know it doesn't take much text for the ads to display something. Back when I was doing some testing it took only 2 times mentioning the phrase "I love <something>" to display a vast variety of lubricant ads :D.
A little blurb of your games might help. May I also recommend maybe a commenting system? Some of the peoples reactions to the game could serve useful as keywords for googlebot to munch on. Just a thought!
Like I said I used the same text in the in the meta and the <!-- --> and because I'm experimenting, yesterday I removed the comments<!-- --> to leave the bit more "legal" stuff. And what turned out is that the ads showed significantly less relevant then before. Specificly only one keyword is used to display the ads, which pretty much proves my point.
The idea of the comments might come in handy later, I'll resolve to it if the descriptions and any other ideas don't work. The thing is that I was planing a comment/forum for the site but also in flash, directly on the main page, but great thx for the suggestion.
so one might think here's a happy ending to the stroy ... but nope, the truth is although the desciprtion was a bit longer than I wanted it to be it still wasn't enough to bring in ads other then the "PSA" ones. So I copied it to the meta-description - still not enough. Finally after 4 new copies of the description in html <!-- --> comments the ads showed up right.
But what am I suposed to think riht now. The ads couldn't be more relevant than they are. Text that is used to bring up the ads is clearly visible for the user on every page. But still it's 6! copies of the same thing. Does this violate the TOS, should I be worried mildly or just be terrified.
Anyone have enough experience and knowledge about da TOS to help me?
Or maybe should I dare to contact them and state my situation praying that they don't bann me.
As for meta description, keywords etc, it makes sense that the mediabot might take these into account.
Sometimes Adsense takes a little time to target properly - I suspect that is what has happened here.
I also wouldn't imagine that you'd get penalised for repeating comments.
Why not remove them and see what happens with the ads?
so i'm pretttttty sure the bots do browse thru' comments - just try it just be sure to use new .html names every time
