To Adsense or not? (17 posts)

    I have adsense on my blog but unfortunately the same 2 ads are there all the time, they never change.

    I cant get my adsense to scan the page for content at all, i even added the code provided by someone here which was google_page_url = document.location; but its made no difference, I actually have the google adsense in my header file twice so that it would fit neatly next to my banner showing one ad each. Here is my header file for you to look at and tell me if there is something wrong, like where its placed or something:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); if ( is_home() ) { ?>» <?php bloginfo('description'); } if ( is_single() ) { ?> » Blog Archive <?php } wp_title(); ?></title>
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" /> <!-- leave this for stats -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=link'); ?>
    <?php // comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    i'd like to see your blog ..first off, SE Bots dont know if your blog surfs Blog Explosion or if anyone else does ..SE Bots go directly from one domain (link) to the next and then reads only yours ..my guess is your adsense displays info about blogs? well isnt that what your blog is ..a blog? so it is only natural that it would read 'blog' ..try posting topics that are keyword rich but dont have anything to do with blogs..

    though i am sure it reads a link from blog explosion it also reads links from other 'blogs' ..see the pattern - your blog must have something to do with blogs.. but it will still read 'your post content' and after several keyword rich post your adsense will change based on your post.

    this tag (google_page_url = document.location) as nothing to do with blog explosion, blog clicker or any other traffic exchange anymore than a SE Bot needs meta permission to read your site with the tag (robots: follow,index), whatever the correct tag is, about the only thing that will get ya is extra spam bots.

    as the folks over at google say, if you want different adsense ads change your content - i assume they know what they are talking about (maybe lol)

    Well obviously my blog is a blog therefore Iexpect stuff about blogs to appear lol. The only problem is that the ads only seem to change to sites relating to what I have wrote if you view the post on its own page, if you head over to my blog located at http://www.coffeecup.co.nr you will see for yourself what I mean.

    But if your content changes too frequently, their bot may have a hard time distinguishing what's what. That would also explain if your permalink pages show relevant ads, but not the index page.

    OK so where in the header can I add my own meta tags?

    I made a 'mis-stake', probably spelled that wrong too, if your page is seen via a frame, like Blog Explosion or BlogAzoo traffic exchanges. yep adsense will use the frame as the content. i never saw my page in a frame until today. nor did i think adsense would change on a dime.

    so yes you need to use the option at google's adsense that you page uses frames, like Blog Explosion or BlogAzoo traffic exchanges, which will insert this code automatically.. or manually add to the google code on your page..

    google_page_url = document.location;

    so whip me with a feather ..lol..

    "OK so where in the header can I add my own meta tags?"

    You don't need to add meta tags - the Googlebot doesn't read them, it reads the text in the page.

    What I would suggest is getting more than two posts on the front page and getting some actual writing instead of lists of words. (The "Playlist" post looks like a list of keywords - if Google picked it up at all, it might pick it up as spam and ignore it or worse.)

    I have the exact same problem. My ads are always about LCD monitors even though I've got a ton of content on other stuff on my main page. If I click on the 'May' archives link, then all the same blog entries show up (giving almost exactly the same page as before) but then I get good AdSense ads. Weird. URL: http://www.h d b l o g.net (remove spaces)

    Google is probably weighting heavily towards the keywords in your header - "HDTV News for Movies, Television, and Console Gaming." And remember that Google also weights towards the highest revenue ads by combination of click through rate and price per click. So, if the choice is between a high expected return ad for an expensive LCD monitor versus a lower expected return ad for something else, you're going to get the higher return ad. Which is not a bad thing, as long as it's relevant, since it will make you more money, too.

    Umm you might want to remove the duplicate GoogleAd blocks. It's against the T&C to display two adblocks on the one page. :/

    If you use Google's Adsense preview tool you will see that there are about 10 options for ads at your site.
