Each time I write on a Facebook group of page, there's always that link that is off topic and irrelevant. Each time I post something, there's always that ad that read, "This stuff is amazing! My best friend Jessica did the same diet and lost an incredible amount of weight..." popping up! Ditto for those handbag, work at home, and other diet ads!
Those links are so irrelevant and make me sick! If you are on Facebook, have you seen those pestering links on the walls of groups or pages! Does that bother you? Do you report/spam them! They are so annoying!
Those adverts are paid for, meaning they're Facebook's main source of income. So I doubt reporting them will do much good unless they are extremely inappropriate.
It's not like facebook is the first site to ever have annoying adverts.
You and talfonso are referring to two different things. The ads talfonso is speaking of are not the sponsored links on the side of every page on facebook. They are the spam that gets posted on people's/group's/pages walls as a result of friends/members/fans being hacked. Reporting those does a lot of good as they are condsidered spam and the offers are usually fake. It's stuff like "OMG I can't believe this! I just got a free $500.00 WalMart Gift Card! They are still giving them away! Go to [insert link here] to get yours before they're gone!" or some similar crap.

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)?

I do not understand why, when I try very hard with my keyword research to find keyword phrases that will generate ads with a reasonable cpc and to only use keyword tags on those phrases or related phrases, that my hubs are covered with giant flashing ads with pictures of beefburgers and others...

How can we filter irrelevant ads from our hubs?
