Is it just me, or do the adsense adds that pop up often have nothing to do with the topic of your hub? Is there anything that can be done to have some control over the ads that come up (and to make them more relevant)?
put your main keywords in title ,heading, anchor text with related topic, bold and use related tags
hope that can helps
thanks for asking :-)
If you have targeted keywords and content, and if the topic isn't too obscure (in other words, are there plenty of advertisers for the subject), then you should see targeted ads.
There is an option in your adsense account to stop certain adverts appearing (you type the website name and add it to a ban list) OR to stop certain subjects appearing (such as insurance.) (This will apply to your 60% share not the HP 40% share however.)
As lrohner said, if you have targeted keywords you should be fine.
Just remember if you write on something obscure like "blue beaked birds that live in the south of England" google may not have any content that matches so will resort to whatever adverts it can find.
Remember it also takes several hours to several days for adverts to match your hub content.
I have noticed sometimes the ad right under our avatar and name follows similar to what I myself have been searching... yesterday I was searching French Connection dresses and when I just checked one of my France hubs, there was an ad for a French Connection dress. another one I checked had an
Armanis ad. I would imagine they show differently for the searcher.
when you're making your hub they ask you how much ads you want?
Most fo the time Adsense targets ads to the person, not the website.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that...

Several days ago it was mentioned that the sidebar had disappeared, appeared, disappeared, on HP Hubs. I just noticed on another site which I am frequently on that the ads have also vanished. I checked a couple others...

There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.
