Rate Your Content
Does it seem that Google only finds ads for the lesser content on your site, rather than the main keywords and phrases you want to emphasize? There is a way to control which content gets the prime ads with a simple code:
<!-- google_ad_section_start -->
... Main content ...
<!-- google_ad_section_end -->.
<!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) -->
... Lesser content...
<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
You signed up for AdSense, and now you arenít getting any real ads. Most of what you see is Google PSAs, or public service announcements. If youíre seeing an error message on your AdSense account page that says your account information needs to be verified, youíll have to fill out an online form with Google offering up a good deal of your personal information. Google will ask for a social security number, address and other particulars. This information must be provided if you expect to receive any sort of payment through Google.
You may also be getting PSAs instead of ads for another reason: META tags. Make sure you check over the tags very carefully on every page thatís open to Google AdSense. The keywords in the tags should match your site content. Be sure that all titles and headlines on your pages match the content as well. This will help to get rid of any annoying PSAs you may see on your site.
