Irrelevant Ads On Blog

In my other blog Pinoy Media Insider I talk about anything and everything that has to do with the production side of broadcast media. Being the case, I would expect my Google ads to be somewhat related to matters concerning TV production, filmmaking and the like. Strangely though, what I’ve been getting most of the time are ads on stress management and anxiety disorders.

I’ve reviewed all my posts and I couldn’t find anything at all that could possibly lead Google to send me those ads. Ironically, I have been under a lot of stress and my anxiety level has been hitting the roof lately. It’s mostly because of some personal concerns. Ok, I’ll admit it. It’s mostly because of the fact that after almost three months of blogging my Adsense revenue is still a measly 58 cents.

Could this be a case of computer software gone telepathic? Earlier today I saw another irrelevant ad on my media-centric blog. This time it was for a slightly adult-themed site. I was astounded. Apparently, Adsense is even tuning in on the impure thoughts and feelings of one of my three avid readers. (cue “Twilight Zone” theme)

    There could be a number of reasons why this is happening, but I suspect that your Insider blog would be relevant to ads for schools or writing courses and such. There may be a dearth or lack of advertisers for schools and Google Adsense may be putting advertisements that have nothing to do with your site. In a way, it may force you to change your topics to ones which has more advertisers.

    For example, you may want to write about video editing software, camera equipment, etcetera.

    Also, may I suggest you look over Google Adsense settings and help.

    When all else fails, pray and offer incense to the great Yuga.
