Default Adsense Adverts

Hola and Happy Halloween to you guys

I have been running adsense for some time on one of my domains which focus is Scoliosis

I have just noticed recently that some of my ads are now very strange, restaurants in Malaga, chinese medicine and that kind of thing, I know I cannot manipulate what ads show as it is content driven, none of these pages have changed content wise, there are more than 300 words on the page and it is very clear what the page is about, I have title tags and H1

What would be the reason for these ads now appearing? Could it be due to the lack of advertisers on Adwords so Google is struggling to find good ads to display or do I now need to make changes to my pages?

I am hoping it is not the latter! After it working for so long I cannot understand why the sudden change unless it is a lack of advertisers so maybe I need to change the size of my ads and display less so Google can find suitable ads instead of filling then gaps with crap?

Thanks

Simone

Part of google's results are personalized based on your user profile with them. Others don't see the same ads, as they are based on your profile/history with your google account.

Why on earth are they showing me chinese medicine then, very weird. I have a complete profile in my Google account

I wonder what people in other places are seeing as it was someone else who brought these ads to my attention - pants!

My guess would be the advertiser for chinese medicine used scoliosis as one of their keywords.

Default Adsense ?

Are you seeing the wierd adverts when your working on your site or when you come in to your site like a regular visitor?

I notice that when I am updating my site I will see some very unusual ads in the adsense section, but after I publish the changes and view the site like a regular visitor the sports related ads are showing.

Hola

No, this is when I go as a regular visitor, some of them are about Parkinson's treatment which is absolutely nothing to do with Scoliosis!

There is also a cupon website in Spanish, the website is hosted in the USA, all the website is written in English and my main visitors are from the UK!

I am in Spain on a Spanish IP address so perhaps personal search is involved here, hence the reason for the Spanish reference, this has only started happening though, I have never seen Spanish ads before!

Thanks

Nutty
