Anyone here knows how to filter out PSA ads? It seems a lot of the times they show up when content is relevent so I end up losing money. How can you filter them all out?

you can't really filter out PSAs. I would look into placing your Adsense adverts in a different place on the page - the mediabot isn't finding your content that is why you are getting PSAs - either that or no adsense advertisers for those terms.

One thing you might *try* is to make urls like: site.com?x=title-of-your-page

Not ideal, but it *may* help....?

I think Justageek claimed to have found a way to filter them out without changing the code, but just checking to see the ads that were coming in before he would allow them to be displayed in his site.

Whether or not this is 100% kosher according to Google or how it was accomplished is unknown and beyond my abilities.

What do you think how safe is this, Nick?

Thinking about dynamic looking urls ... and google disallowing to show AdSense on dynamic pages ...

I don't think it's a problem as a dynamic page but i did say 'might' ;) - It's probably a pain with G and the issues concerning dupe pages etc...

I'd just leave 'em personally. They don't make G any money so they'll no doubt get it sorted in time...

Personally, I wouldn't do it. It is a red flag, IMO, and I believe that is why they don't allow AdSense on search results pages, because the URLs are usually something like site.com?x=title-of-your-page.
