Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
On the internet not only do the people have to look at the ad, they have to call the number before you get paid....this is the ONLY game in town, live with it or too bad.
The thing that kills me is that most of the ads that are placed on our sites are there for free. Any other place and any other time in history those ads would pay to be there.
Despite doing really well, my CTR has dropped alarmingly over the years; the only thing saving me is that the EPCs have gone up considerably.
Did you try to mark the relevant text on your pages as ad-sections? There was some kind of markup (don't remember the syntax) to exclude non-relevant text on pages so the ads get more targeted.
Any word on if something happened to shut the favicon testing down or is it just temporary(or just me)?
This was where I was ranting and venting like everyone else nutmeg. Why are you peeing in my pool?
Any ideas or comments please...
engine: The topic is about ads not matching content. Is this a temporary technical fault on Google's part?
play_bach: Maybe the OP is just noticing IBAs? They have nothing to do with content, right? It's a common misconception for years here on this board that changing to not show IBAs somehow does what people *think* it does. It doesn't. Could simply be a misunderstanding (again...).
