Section targeting for AdSense allows you to ignore on-page content

Filed under: Online Ads — Tim Yang @ 12:12 pm

Ah finally, Google rolls out section targeting for Adsense. Just because I’ve got the word ‘blog’ in my title and in my first header, Google always seems to think that it should deliver ads on blogs, even though not much of my content is about blogs or blogging (well ok, except for this post).

Now with section targeting, with a couple of comment tags, I can tell Google to read the content of this or of that to determine what context of ads it should deliver. I can also tell it not to read the blogroll, the menu and the header and the footer so the text in those sections are not taken into context.


  1. Can I use these specialised comments ‘multiple times’ in web template?

  2. Yes you can. For example on my site, I turn section weighting off for the header, the footer, the navigation and the sidebar. But I turn section weighting on for the main content.
