Google Adsense google_hints Code



It had come to the attention of a few people that some adsense blocks on some websites contain a section of code like this google_hints="your,keywords,go,here"; , Some discussion was sparked by this, Then a moderator Vangogh had the idea to email google and ask them about this, Best to get it from the horses mouth.

Googles response to the google_hints adsense code question was
Thanks for your inquiry. The feature you're referring to is one of several features the Google AdSense team is currently testing for a very limited number of publishers. At this time, we are not able to offer these features to other publishers. Should we offer these features to additional publishers in the future, we will be sure to notify you at that time. I appreciate your understanding.


It looks to me like they are still beta testing the google_hints code.
personally i don't know if this is a good idea. Adsense is supposed to be contextual, Meaning the adsense bot visits your site, reads the page, and then gives you adverts based around your content, The google_hints adsense code will effectively mean publishers can choose what adverts are being displayed. So if you are currently publishing content that produces adverts that pay 5 cents per click you would be likely to just stick the keywords "asbestos, mesothelioma, cancer, lawyer, compensation" in the google_hints and hope for those elusive $40 clicks. It would mean less clicks, But should mean more earnings.

I believe to make this available to everyone would be a huge mistake by google.

Hints should not be made available to everyone - but can be made available to people who have a portfolio of websites.

The hints would be best used to give broader categories rather than trying to focus on specific keyword (smart pricing should really prevent hints being abused).

For example, a publisher has a few websites and one is about a particular pop group, but no ads are appearing ( or ring tone ads etc). That publisher should be able to give google the hint of music, bands etc - and bring up a large pool of ads to draw from. Smartpricing should not affect this due to the fact the site is about a band, and therefore other bands and music ads would still be relevant.

Now if the same publisher also had a site about their favourite football team - and tried putting in the high paying keywords via hints, then smartpricing would kick in and coversion would expected to be low from this. Especially as web visitors would be likely to look for more information regarding the team and not looking for asbestos related ads.
