My test site is running on my own local machine (http://127.0.0.1/, etc) and the ads were relevant for the page.
How? I thought Adsense depended on the special Adsense GoogleBot to get context? I've probably missed the memo, so any references to how this works would be great!
If so, the portion of Adsense code:
still reaches out over the web and serves ads.
Even if you blocked the Mediapartners bot, Adsense can still display relevant ads.
1) The URL with clearly delineated keywords
2) The general "topic" of the non-development portion site (e.g. website.com is about flowers. When you start editing dev.website.com, you might see flower ads even though the crawler can not possibly "see" the pages within dev.)
1) HOW do you actually "turn off" AdSense on your development site? Is there a simple way or do you have to have some sort of dev-site script that manually deletes the ads.
2) IF you don't delete them - i.e. if you develop your pages while looking at PSA etc, does it affect the way Google perceives your performance? In other words, does Google "see" and "count" the impressions clearly coming from local copies or "dev."-type sites?
