    Hi,



    A dummy me question coming up? If there is no content on the page how does google ads know what to show? How was that done?

    A few years ago when I ran a directory I would get submissions like this all of the time.

    @Sami4u, anantshri is correct. Google's AdSense spider can determine a theme through the HTML title tag and page name. If you want to avoid public service ads for a new site, make sure that the title tags, meta tags and page names are focused on a theme. Although Google says that they do not use meta tags for ranking purposes, my testing indicates that the AdSense spider does use them.

    That clears up any mystery. The site owner is using old time black hat methods.

    I'm wondering how long this owner will get paid for clicks if his website stays like this..
