    Adsense, how does it work?

    Hello, I am not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this, but here goes:
    I decided to utilize Google's Adsense program, but my problem is when I go to my own site (a hosting company) I see ads for competitors. Is there a way to change the content so related sites show but not competitors? This is probably a question for the folks at Google, but I thought I would give you guys a try first.

    To my small knowledge no i dont think you can change them becuase they are targeted ads so they target adverts of the same categorie.

    imo business sites should never have ads on them...
    Basically Gogle show what they feel to be 'relevant adverts' and in your case that's your competitors. If you were running a review site or giving information about a topic, yes I can see an application. But business sites should stay away from ads.

    well i guess it doesnt matter now, but to anyone else who cares you can block certain sites from ur ads. I think it is up to 100 maybe more or less.
