    What's going on here :(?

    At first it was showing pretty closely related ads. After someone on here saying it would take between 24-48 I stoppped looking at it and today I look and it;s showing some totally unrelated stuf- car mechanics and shit when my niche is, say, fluffy bunnies.

    Does this sometimes happen? Any remedy? I could be losing valuable clicks.

    Code:
    Interest-based Ads Preference [edit]       
    Interest-based ads:    Show ads based on user interest and demographic categories. Visitation information from my sites may be used to help create interest and demographic categories.
    
    Third Party Ads Preference [edit]       
    Third Party Ads:    Allow advertisers to use their audience information to deliver more relevant ads to my site.
    
    
    
    
    play with this in the google adsense settings.

    and also try to use a proxy with cookie cleared, i think than will be related ads shown.

    Relax. You have been browsing about car mechanics. Google looks at your cookie.

    ^^^

    What he said. The ads are geared more to the visitor than the content most times. Actually this is better for the site owner as ads are relevant to the user.

    Adsense is dangerously stupid sometimes.
    Hell when we were using it alot we were getting banners for Stem Cell therapy, NOT EVEN LEGAL IN THE UK!!!!!!!!!!!

    What you can do is block stuff you really don't wan't appearing, not really a solution, but it gets rid of all the god bothering adverts and the like.

    It depends on where do you live and also what your niche. Maybe this is the time in year advertisers are not so active so you will get less ads relevant to your niche.
