Hello,

In a recent post [webmasterworld.com] I asked for Adsense Optimization advice.

Unfortunately, after making some of the adviced adjustments to the content structure of my page to enable better ad targeting, I discovered that Adsense is still serving ads targetted at the previously downloaded version of the pages on my site.

How can I get the Adsense bot to download and use the new version of the pages on my site in selecting ads to show?

Thanks.

Did you change the adblock colors, borders or size? Doing one or more of those will sometimes bring the bot back for another look rather quickly.

But it can take time for Adsense to get the taretting right. Giving it a few days wouldn't hurt.

If you can redirect pages, you can fix things in two stages. Basically you need to redirect the old URL to a new URL. Access the new URL directly to cause the Mediabot to come crawling.

After a few days, do the reverse to get back to your original URL. Or just leave it as is. I've done this myself on my sites to re-target the ads.

Hi osewa77

Im glad to hear you were able to incorporate some of the suggestions made on [webmasterworld.com ] for optimizing your site.

To add to those ideas, I recommend including more text-based content on the specific subjects which you would like to see advertised on your forum. Complete sentences and paragraphs are especially helpful to our crawlers in determining the meaning of a page and serving relevant ads.

Also, as everyone above mentioned, the crawl delay you have noticed is normal. Crawling is done automatically by the AdSense bots, and cannot be triggered manually. As we usually tell publishers, when you make changes to a page you may notice it can take 1-2 weeks for your ads to adjust to the new content.

And of course, the best approach is to make sure that the page's keyword density is what you want it to be before you show any ads on it. Then you don't have to fix things up! Use a keyword density analyzer like the one at www.ranks.nl to figure things out.

Thanks, AdsenseAdvisor, for the tip. I'll definitely run with it and report my findings in a few days.

I've done the old page name switch-a-roo for small sites, it's bit of a PITA though.
