Unmatched Ad Requests?
Does anyone know anything about the "unmatched ad requests" on Google Adsense Reports? I have been doing some research, trying to find some answers but it's pretty oblique. Apparently, these are requests sent out that cannot be fulfilled and therefore, no ads are running. It is related to coverage. A request is "covered" when an ad is put up.
Right now, I seem to be sitting consistently at around 75% coverage. So that means only 75% of my ads are covered. This is consistent across almost all the places that I cover. Any web geniuses out there that might be willing to share more light on it?
Are you using link units?
Google's http://www.google.com/adsense/support/b … er=1224195 mentions that as a possible cause for high "unmatched".
"If you're using link units on your site, unmatched ad requests might be higher than expected. This is due to the way we count a matched ad request for link units. A matched ad request for a link unit is only counted if the user clicks on a term in the link unit. If the user doesn't click, the ad request is considered unmatched. As a result, coverage is lower for link units than other ad units."
PC, most of these are from Hubpages. I have opted out of the HP Ad Program right now and am trying to make it through Adsense. I wonder if it is related to the ads above the title that only show when we are logged out.
As a Hubpages writer, we don't have a choice as to which ads are chosen. But I wonder if this is something that is common to a lot of Hubbers or something I am doing specifically. Curious ...

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub request for something I've written on (revver videos, for example), I can simply...

Have you guys noticed an increase of personal requests? Or is it just me?

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a request.

Go look at the Q&A section (used to be Request a Hub)More than half the questions are technical or advice about Hubpages type questions. People aren't getting that it's not supposed to a help type question.I also thought it was a FAQ or help type question and was getting frustrated...

I noticed that hubpages is putting in nice hub requests and this is motivating people to create great hubs, thanks for the hub requests, as requests give us a reason to create beautiful hubs and we share each other's point of views with that.I would like to share other hubber's views on this topic.

Hi everyone,We have to delete about 5-10 requests a day that are well-meaning, but do not adhere to what we're looking for for requests.Requests are NOT for:- asking people's opinions (like "What is your favorite..." or "What do you think about...")- very basic information (like...
