If it's displaying ads that aren't targeted, that isn't because it doesn't want to
small fluffy widgets
which i was getting for until the other keyword appeared, as a result my CTR has halved in the last few days.
My first instinct was to remove the 'blue' keyword, but then i just get 'pink widgets' ads, so my only real alternative now is to try banning sites that have these specific ads - which is a pain as they would of course do well on the deep pages they relate to.
Arrrgggghhhh, as if it wasn't bad enough just doing SEO, now I am doing AdSense Optimisation as well!
Problem is not the adsense system, it's moronic adwords advertisers who don'T understand the concept of targeting.
I'd be great If I could post their urls to adsense so they could make recommendations for better targeting to the advertiser... everybody would win, and I'm happy to give them that service, cos it improves my adsense sales...
Hey, here is an idea.. volunteer AdSense operators to provide free consultation and optimization help to AdWords advertisers :)
Imagine, we're jsut at 100000 advertisers now, there is still so much more potential.
