How to Use Google's Ad Site Placement Targeting

You can use Google’s “placement targeting” feature to target ads to appear on specific pages at our website that benefit your company, particularly if your advertisement and product provide services, products, or information that are useful to our readers. we have seen better results for us and for advertisers using this approach than could be obtained by placing single (and more costly) ads fixed on individual website pages.

For example if someone asked about placing an ad on our air conditioning diagnosis/repair topic front-page, we have presently nearly 250 different technical articles on air conditioning online, many of which have higher page-view statistics than the A/C front page.

That’s because search engines take readers to topic-specific articles at our website. You’d get the best return on your advertising dollar by permitting your ads to appear on any of our website pages where your advertisement and services and our website content best match what consumers are looking for.

There are also specific named links that Google's AdSense program will display and that can be targeted on our web pages.

These link types appear on all of our website pages across a wide range of building inspection, diagnosis, and repair topics to which the Google system matches ad topics with website content.
