Those generic Google ads

    I understand that it somehow takes a while before Google adjusts its ads to your Hub's subject matter. When a Hub is new, it's plastered with discouraging ads like "Find Asian Brides" and such. At the same time, I am invited at publication to publicize my Hub on places like Facebook and MySpace, which I do. I figure, though, that those who respond to my invitation usually read the Hub before the ads have adjusted to the subject matter. The result: No money for either me or my advertisers.
    Is there a way around this problem? If I wait to publicize my Hub, will the Google ads adjust, or is the adjustment dependent on people visiting the Hub?

    If I sound dumb, I haven't been active on HubPages for a long time, partly because of discouraging situations like this (and eBay cancelling my ad account because it was "inactive").

    I usually wait a day and check my stats are registering before I start to publicize my writing here.Choose a few specific tags and a good category match and the ads should match up pretty quickly.

    AdSense allows you to remove certain controversial types of ads altogether here:


    This will only work in your share of impressions (60% of the time), but may still be worth doing.

    I wonder why they always start with those types of ads, anyway. Do they really get a lot of responses on them?

    Hehe, Find Asian Brides is quite sad to have on your blog (lest it is catered to it...which be interesting).

    I think I had a little penis-enlargement add, but otherwise, google has behaved on my hubs.
