Problem with adsense

Postby kestasv » Thu Oct 15, 2009 6:44 am

Hello, I have problem with Adsense. After then I install phpbb-seo I put Adsense code to my website. 98% of visitors are woman and they are discussing about family, comsmetic, flowers, home, garden and etc. but Adsense shows ads which is not about my website content ads are about UNIX, Linux, Freelancers etc. and all ads are in english but my forum is translated in lithuanian language. In overall_header.php I put keywords, write description but nothing change. So can you help me and tell where is the problem because i afraid to be banned from Adsense.
Sorry for my english

I don't think this is related to phpbb-seo. How long have you had your ads up? It will take a little while for them to understand the context of your pages so that they can display more relevant links. One thing you could try is going into your adsense account and clicking on Ad Review Center. There you can choose to disallow certain types of ads if they are not relevant. I'm unsure about the language issue. If you have english language installed on your forum then make sure that the bots aren't using it. Hopefully, these things will sort themselves out in a little bit.

To your language problem: if google has no enough ads in your prefered language, it will show them in english. the other point is: if your keywords are mostly in english language (for cosmetics it should be mostly the case) google will show the ads in english language too.

the wrong ads: i think there is a problem with adsense itself. i use adsense on a dog-related board. the most of my ads are dog related too. but sometimes i get ads for cosmetics, cars and so on.

in this cases i go to my adsense center and disable the advertiser domains.

Your main issue is this google adwords will look for ads in your language, but some country's do use google or there isn't enough relevance, so it will revert back to english ads, now if your key words are also in your language and there is no relevance then it will try and find the best ads for your site. It sounds like Google is trying but it sounds like they are having a hard time getting it right.

Not to point out of obvious, but is this metatag correct for your language?

Code: Select all
<meta name="content-language" content="en" />

Google will generally figure out what you meant even if it's not correct, but never hurts to give correct hints.

Have u heard about section targeting in adsense?

if not try searching for that.

in viewtopic_body.html

try changing

Code: Select all
<div class="content">{postrow.MESSAGE}</div>


Code: Select all
<div class="content"><!-- google_ad_section_start -->{postrow.MESSAGE}<!-- google_ad_section_end --></div>

and in others like viewforum_body.html too by making important content to show using section targeting.
