    Adsense don't make sense!

    I run a TV blog and up until now the Google adsense ads have always been appropriate -- all TV shows ads. Now suddenly it's ads for software, and other odd products. What gives? Why is my blog suddenly getting inappropriate ads? Am I alone in this?

    DOn't know if it's related but my PR dropped away to nothing this week too. Very frustrating!

    It looks as if google are making some updates i've noticed a few changes in PR and links not being counted. Not heard of adsense changing but I guess its an impact of all the changes that are going on.

    It's also possible your site has received targeted ads from a specific advertiser who feels the audience is a match. Google has been working to provide more and more tools to let users do this type of site-by-site advertising resulting in changes to the mix.

    Yeah sometimes that happens. I think google sometimes runs other ads to see if they are more effective. I notice a lot of ads for things like LED lights. Pretty generic and a lot of people would be interested in them.

    Hi

    I tried Google adSense for advertising my website, but I was not very happy with the results I got.

    I also tried email advertising on different networks and it seemed to me that taketheinternetback.com ads delivered quite good results in terms of generated visits and conversion.
