Well, I just recently published an article about the Sun (I know, very exciting…).
The thing is now plastered with solar panel ads. These ads are completely off topic for my purposes.
I have plowed through the AdSense menus and their Help Section.
The Filtering-Content capabilities do not appear to include keywords, i.e. “solar panels”; or categories (except for a very limited list).
Is there a keyword filtering option?
Is there an expanded category option?
If not, is there a workaround?
In your AdSense settings, you can block specific advertisers, but not by keyword. And any of those custom setting will only work during the 60% timeshare when your affiliate code is in effect, not during HubPages share to impression time.
Relache, thanks for the excellent response. You have acquired yet another follower. Like you really need it… (grin).
Thanks, Website Examiner. Actually, I want lots and lots of ads. I just don’t think “solar panels” is a good fit for an article about “Doomsday”, aka “we are all scr*wed” (grin). Then again, who knows? Maybe I’m wrong. Time will tell.

I often see barely related Amazon ads on pages here. Sometimes, I see ads that seem plain perverse -- ads for Apple TV on an apple pie recipe page, for example.I'm sure a lot of the most unrelated (and harmful) Amazon...
