I have been trying to work out how to filter ads on my hubs, but it appears that you can only do it by blocking certain url's/ads from the whole of your content. Therefore if you have a wide range of hubs you cannot really use this because you will could potentially block ads that might be relevant to one hub but not another. Any ideas?
Unless an ad truly offends you, don't block anything.
The ads you see are not necessarily the ones I will see. So frustrating over it and trying to get it just right is just a waste of time.
The Google algorithm will get it right most of the time.
IThanks Darkside.....however......as an example......
If i have a page about Evony browser game... and all my tags refer to evony... but I end up getting Dark Orbit ads on that page, then I am potentially losing some clicks right? So it would seem simple to just block darkorbit. However I also have a darkorbit page and therefore do not want to block this site. Also both pages have pretty similar traffic and similar pay per clicks. Is there a way I can get around this or am I asking for too much?!
As Darkside says, you don't know what other people are seeing on your Hub. What you see is determined by Google's assessment of your interests, as well as the content of the Hub, and that will be true of other people too.
I take it that both Evony and Dark Orbit are online games?
If they're topic related then there's a chance a person may click on the ad anyway.
The problem is if say they've published an article on breeding rats, because they're into rats, and the ads are for pest control or rat bait.
While the ads that we think run counter to what we stand for tend to stick out more, don't sweat it.
You can try by blocking this add and see the result. If it increases your income block this. If not, keep it as it is. Just a matter of experiment.
there is an important factor not mentioned here.
The ad displays on your page isnt only the the most relevant it is also and more importantly ..... the highest bidder.
If you block the highest bidder than the next highest bidder will appear, which means less cash per click for you
As for ideas, sure..if the ad that appears on your page isnt as releavnt as you desire than you play with phrasing and keyword use until it is more to your liking...you BLOCK an ad you dont want, by not feeding it with its trigger keywords.. a good vocab, a thesaurus and some creativity should give you all the control you need
blocking an advertiser account wide is best left to options like, a Nike Sneaker affiliate site that is adsense monetized ...you may wish to block reebok and other advertisers that dilute your purpose
