This may just be a fluke or happenstance, but I noticed by chance that when I published a hub right after another hub that the adsense ads were attuned to the previous hubs theme.
I decided to test a theory I had that maybe the adsense ads are reading some sort of cookie (like yahoo does when they serve ads in your email, reading cookies from other sites they work with and adsense owns now doubleclick I believe).
What i did was cleared cookies right after publishing the hub, which also signed me out of HP, I signed back in and went back to that hub refreshed the page and noticed my ads were now matching the hub.
Again I don't know if this is just chance or not but try clearing cookies when you publish a hub and see what happens with your ads. I'd be interested to see what others experience here.
My theory is that the ads not syncing up may possibly be a local thing as well as a time released thing.
I'm sure they have to crawl the page before ads will match up- but even if they just happen to do it right away you may not see them because the ads may be based partially on cookies on your computer i.e. personalizing the adsense etc...
I think Hubpages has Adsense set to serve readers Ads based on what they previously viewed, I'm not sure of the term for this option but I get it all the time.
Interresting.... very interresting... Thanks for the replies...!
Yes, Adsense has been doing this for awhile.
If you've been looking at adverts for holidays then visit a site about tea kettles, you'll likely see holiday adverts!
That's why it's often difficult to aim Adsense at particular keywords, since often the adverts are aimed at history, not actual current content.

Why am I seeing ads for Maven on my unpublished, unfinished Hub? Possibly (hopefully) a glitch? This makes no sense. Nobody sees an unpublished Hub but the writer. Is Maven marketing to HubPages writers? Aren't we part of Maven? They appear to be Adsense ads, so we can't click on them anyway.I am...

Hi again,I posted on this topic before, but I have lost where in the zillions of posts the topic thread is located, so here's my latest lament:Moments ago, I hit the "PUBLISH" button for my latest hub on the unbelievability of human-caused global warming, and, low and behold, what sorts...

Hi fellow hubbers,I recently wrote a hub on plastic pollution, and below a tragic picture of a plastic-polluted beach, there are small ads for plastic products.I find this insensitive to the theme of the hub and parasitic on the cause IN A BAD WAY.I assume that I have absolutely NO control over...

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.

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.
