In case of google Adsense, the technology used goes beyond keyword matching. Its algorithms are so strong that it grasps your content and automatically deliver ads relevant to your web pages. It doesn’t matter that you have 10 pages or 100+ pages, google ads will show appropriate ads on every pages of your site. In case of blogs, where content keeps on changing, there are internal linkings of pages, sometimes topics are repeated but with different title and so on, google understands your content and then display ads to match your content.
Below is what Google says about showing appropriate ads:
Google’s ad review process ensures that the ads displayed on your sites are not only family friendly, but also comply with strict editorial guidelines. Google combines sensitive language filters, your input, and a team of linguists with good hard common sense to automatically filter out ads that may be inappropriate for your content.
What’s more, you can block competitive ads and choose your own default ads. It’s your show from start to finish.
3. Ad Filtering Options

There is an option for you to choose the backup ad when you create an ad code in your Adsense account. If there are none, then google will show your backup ad automatically. This will be a blank space in between your blog posts or web page. As a AdSense account holder, you can also review and block ads from specific advertisers.
4. How Google Target Ads for Your Site?
Google delivers targeted ads for each single site and is done by ad targeting using different technologies and algorithms.
4.1. Contextual Targeting
Contextual ads are delivered based on the keywords, links and many other factors on the page including typical things like font size. Google tracks everything and match with the advertisements to choose the highest bid ads for publishers.
4.2. Placement Targeting
The ad placement is one of the major factor for earning more revenue. Better the ad placement is better are the chances of earning high. Generally ads shown above or below header earns more than other ads. The reasons is that advertisers prefer to show the ads immediately when the page is loaded rather than the user needs to scroll down to see the ad.
4.3. Geo Targeting
Google to understand the primary language of the site’s content regardless of whether it is declared or not. If your content is in a language supported by AdSense program, AdSense will target ads in the appropriate language to your content.
5. Irrelevant AdSense Ads
Sometimes its good if you are seeing irrelevant ads on your website. Reason:
a) Due to interest based ads
b) Due to thin content on a page
a) Interest Based Ads – Reason for No Relevancy
Google tracks each site you’ve visited by using various methods and cookies is one of them. But Why to take so much headache? The major reason is to track internet based ads on google search and Adsense publisher’s sites.
Want to test?? Let’s gets started then
Open Cloudways on chrome and then open a page/post showing Adsense Ads. Ads from Cloudways will start appearing. Google cares more about what your interest is rather than what your content is about. So this is Interest based ads.
b) Thin Content Shows Irrelevant Ads
Irrelevant ads are mostly seen when there is an article of 400 words or less with 3-5 ads on a single page. This affect ads quality and user experience. No one wants to see a page full of ads.
Here’s a simple equation from Google to have a successful site earning more revenue:
A content rich page = Highly targeted ads
Highly targeted ads + Interested users = Healthy click through & conversion rates
Healthy click through & conversion rates = Success!
6. What is AdSense Bot or Crawler? Why it is important?
A crawler or bot or google spider is a software used to find and index the content of web pages. Google uses these spiders or bots for searching different platforms for content. The Adsense bot scans the publisher’s website to serve relevant ads.
Why Adsense bot is Important?
- AdSense bot crawls the websites once in a week and publisher’s can’t control the crawl rate. Note in case of Google Search Console site owners can control the rate of crawling unlike AdSense bot.
- Google uses separate bots for search, AdSense and Search Console. Thus correcting any crawl issues showing in Search Console (Webmaster Tools) account will have no impact on AdSense ads displayed.
- AdSense bot treats “example.com” and “www.example.com” as two different sites the same way as search bots.
- Use robots.txt file to control the access of AdSense bot. Pages forbidden by robots.txt file will not be crawled by AdSense bot.
- AdSense bot only crawls the webpages from which the ad request is being sent.
- If you are redirecting a page, AdSense bot first crawls your original page to confirm the redirect.
