In some of my hubs totally irrelevant ads are displayed by google adsense.
Is there any way I can control the ads displayed by google adsense, much like amazon and ebay ads?
Google ads are irrelevant only for as long as it takes for the ads to filter on your Hub. This is also subject to available adwords campaigns, though that's generally not a problem.
Thanks, gamergirl. I've been going nuts trying to get targeted ads into one of my hubs. The main keyword is sprinkled throughout multiple times in an appropriate way (not spammy), but no matter how much text I added or changed, I kept getting off-topic ads. I assumed this was because there was no one running adwords for this keyword. What you wrote confirms this. That's probably because it's a big-money keyword for a product that people in a down economy don't really want. So I think my strategy for this hub will be to not worry about it and see what happens in the future.
But I have a question: Should the AdSense be turned off on this hub until the ads are better targeted? I'm a little unclear about the smart pricing issue. I wonder if leaving untargeted ads on a page where they have little chance of being clicked is a good idea.
In any web site and blogger it is possible. So, I think it is possible. You can find information regarding this issue in the google's following link:

This has been brought up over and over, I described what I believe to be happening in this thread. What it boils down to is this -- if you are seeing poorly targeted ads on hubs that get relatively little traffic (say less than 5 views a day), it is not terribly surprising and it probably is not a keyword issue or an inventory issue -- it's a technical limitation. If you are seeing poorly targeted ads on relatively high traffic hubs, then there may be some other issue, and it's probably worth investigating.
Hi, Paul. Thanks a million for enlightening me about a whole other aspect of AdSense I wasn't aware of.
The ads have on that hub have stayed in the same vein from the time I launched it over the weekend until now. But right after launch there was a lot of HubPages traffic, which I assume came from mostly logged-in Hubbers. There hasn't been much traffic from other sources. If logged-in Hubbers don't count as traffic in Google's eyes, then traffic is probably the issue with these ads.
I didn't want to launch the usual full-scale promotion I do with each hub until I saw targeted ads. Now I realize I probably won't see the targeted ads until I do the promotion. It looks like I had the chicken and the egg mixed up.

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...
