Day 394 – Adsense Sniper #224

Put up another adsense sniper today….I’m going to have to start looking for some writers soon and finding keywords for additional pages on some of my existing sites since I’m just about done with making the sites I’ve had outsourced up to this point.

    Hey Mike, just wondering if you’ve seen this before. I put up a new site this morning in the “swimming pool” niche. On my index.html page all the ads are for things like “server hosting” and “linux hosting”. All of my other subpages are fine but the main page isn’t. Is there anything I can do about this or will it correct itself?

    @Mike – it’s probably due to the template you are using. When I used wordpress themes (before I turned to the dark side – XSitePro2), I’d find all kinds of hidden places where the designer(s) would “hide” a code or two. Not sure if it was designed to steal a click, etc. but it used to frustrate the hell out of me.

    No I’m using something very similar to the xfactor html template. I built it from scratch so there is nothing hidden.

    @mike . The problem that i seem to be facing is my sites not ranking. I’m not sure what that is called. When i type in site:domain.com it shows up. But I’ll have a site which i’ve put up, used wordpress with clickbump to implement xfactor theme. Index with statblaster. 1 week later i add content, turn on adsense. Then i do promotion with UAW with 12 links per day. Then for some reason it will climb the ranks for a month. But after that first month when uaw is done submitting, some of my sites seem to disappear as in not top 100. I’m not sure what i’m doing wrong but 1/4 i’d say of my sites are not appearing and i’m sure that’s why my income is so low.

    Any ideas to that? Also What methods do you use to index your site, besides pinging.

  5. June 3rd, 2010 at 16:39 | #5

    @Jon, I don’t ping it or submit to google. I just build the site, put 3 articles a day on ezine for 7 days and let it go. I’ll also add 1 additional article each week if I can.

    @ Mike: if you still have that problem, try section targeting…or may be put a few more broader keywords in your meta description. It has helped me in the past. Also…it happens that the site has not been “resolved” completely by adsense bots to actually start serving correct ads.

    @ Jon: I would suggest…doing a mix of link building:
    profile links: have some one do it from DP or Wf

    web 2.0 links: I use SEnuke and Web2.0 Bot

    social bookmarking: I use SENUKE and Bookmarking Whiz or social marker(free)

    Write and submit a few articles to a few sites…it is always good to have a mix of links to have a variety of IPs linking to you.

    hope this helps.

    Re: ads not serving correctly, a tag cloud helps with keywords in the cloud.

    The XFactor “SuperOptimized” theme and build video suggests the use of the Configurable Tag Cloud plugin for Wp — if you’ve built your site from scratch, meta data helps. Make sure your H1-H6 tags are capturing your keywords.

    I once had a site where Googl3 indexed me for an incredibly off-topic search, I was #1 for the long tail kw in a totally different niche (weird!) — it was because I was being “creative” in my meta description and used a cliche as part of my description. That cliche preceded any niche kw’s…so G served my site up for an organic search and I wish I had seen the guy’s face when he opened up my site…

    So: I’d double-check the meta data as has been suggested.

    @AP I really don’t know what’s going on. What do you mean by section targeting? It has plenty of swimming pool ads if I hit the arrows and go through the ads but the first page of ads is all web and server hosting. I must have some keyword phrase in there somewhere that is picking those up. Can’t find it though.

  10. June 3rd, 2010 at 20:47 | #10

    @JamestheJust on Elance I checked all the meta and all looks good. I just found a Google Adsense Troubleshooter and it says the site may need 48 hours to be indexed properly so I’ll give it a couple of days.

  11. June 3rd, 2010 at 21:42 | #11

    Thats the G Dance. New sites will have to go through this. Sometimes it take days, sometime weeks. Just carry on with your link building.

    Are you login to your G account? Try logging off your account, clear the cache and check again.

  13. June 3rd, 2010 at 22:16 | #13

    @Tinaman No luck. I’ll give it a couple of days, it’s not going to be indexed yet anyways since I just got it up this morning.

    @MikeR – just go to hxxp:ismysiteindexed.com, run it through the links, and you’ll be indexed in a few hours. Works even on .infos

    @Mike it’s because adsense knows what other adsense sites you visited recently, and is trying to target ads to you based on that. Don’t worry, other visitors should see the ads in your niche.

    @Mike Roosa

    Did you check spyfu to see how many advertisers there are for the kw? Sometimes you have irrelevant ads showing when there aren’t enough advertisers.

    Whatever the case, looks like you got some additional input here. I wouldn’t worry about it, move on to other sites.


    Ya, Jon, I’ve noticed lately that some of my own sites are dropping in ranking, you’ll have to go back to those sites and do more link building to them.

  17. June 4th, 2010 at 15:26 | #17

    @Mikeman I have a problem with moving on. I’m kind of a perfectionist and it’s driving me crazy, but I’m going to take your advice and move on. There are lots of advertisers. Once I start clicking through the arrows at the bottom there’s at least 4 pages of them. I’m moving on now.

    @ Mike Roosa,

    Section targeting means adding 2 lines of code around the content which contains your main keywords..which is Post title and post body. THe code to be used here is:

    The content you want the Google Adsense Bot to take notice of!

    This will prevent bots from trying to display other un-related ads.

    Also, I agree with JamestheJust, about using tags…i never thought of this…I guess with these 2 tips you can really target ads.

    Hope this helps.

    Hm, doesn’t look like the code is showing…. was this what you were referring to?


  20. June 5th, 2010 at 08:37 | #20


    Spot on…this is what i was trying to put in the comment..dint come thru thoough.

    Another thing that I used to do before was have this code around the meta keywords section…and put all the broad terms and brand names (if any) in there for my niche. This increase the targeted ads too.

    Used to do that when i built html websites…since 2 years been on wordpress…so no more of that trick πŸ™‚
