I notice that when I first post a hub the google ads are irrelevent at first but become contextual within minutes. However, one hub I've published recently - a tongue in cheek, spoofy number called The Importance of Male Grooming doesn't seem to have updated - still the same adverts about meeting women and importing wives.
I realise that Google has stats that show most men interested in grooming or not (as the case might be) are obsessed with the availability of women but I think that advertisers of male grooming products would be more relevant to my article's readers - then of course I'd get more clicks.
Is there anyway of changing the ads?
Google looks at your content, titles and tags when it picks ads. So you may have to adjust your wording if you are continually getting ads you don't want.
Normally I'd agree - that's my experience - I can guess at the sort of ads that'll be served quite accurately according to the content of the article I've written. Not with The Importance of Male Grooming though. The ads that Google serve there would be more at home on an article entitled: I'm Desperate to Find a Wife

I seem to get strange ads that are irrelevant to my hub. Is their a way to 'streamline' the google ads to match the content?

I have been a bit puzzled about the way Google Adsense pays. There is reference to page impressions and clicks. I know that clicks get paid for at various rates, but I am not sure about impressions. Does the number of...

I recently posted an article about tips for quitting smoking. The whole focus of the hub, for anyone with a pair of eyes, is about quitting smoking. I've tried to optimize my hub so it would display the appropriate...
