#1 Adverts on my Forum are not related?? by Wendy James 13.04.2010 13:37

Hi

I have a health site and noticed that when I access the Forum there are adverts on the right, of course, but the topic is employment! Working at a job, in my opinion, isn`t healthy! Can the adverts be more relevant?

Thanks

Hey Wendy James,

well, I'm sorry you don't like the job adverts, but I'm afraid we can't generate independent adverts for every single forum, that's Google's job We do have great and cheap ad free tariffs, so maybe you're keen to order an ad free board to post your own, more corresponding ads (+ it's possible to earn money with that). Just have a look at Admin->Premium->Ad free board

Thanks Pamela. Sorry I didn`t mean to sound bossy but it`s just not the kind of ads that look good against a health linked Forum. I`ll check out the Ad free board, thanks again.

Hmmmmmm......now the adverts are in German!

#5 RE: Adverts on my Forum are not related?? by Pam 13.04.2010 14:43

No worries! I understand that these ads won't fit well in your forum, the point is we can't influence Google advertising in an independent way, maybe an ad free board is the best solution. Let me know if you have any questions about.

Cheers from sunny Berlin

Hi Pam

Board #209618. There was a large green vertical banner in German...with things flashing on it.

Hey again,
ok that sometimes randomly happens. We're a German hoster, so probably Google thinks it's better to display German ads (sometimes). You could insert a bit of English text in your footer or header, so the search engine knows after a few days, what to display in which language.

Yes I thought Xobor were German. When I went to chose my location I was shown a map of Germany.

I`ll enter some text in the header and footer as you suggested.

Just one other point....I was looking to upgrade to an Ad Free Board but the form kept saying there was an error with my postcode - again could this be a German related thing? I did choose UK for my country.??!!

Hey Wendy,
got us, that's a little bug and we're working on it right now to fix it until Thursday. Just post your ZIP in the street field and a random number like 000000 in the ZIP field. We're sorting it out in our system afterwards, thx!
