Threaded View

I'm running a website for  shareware POS software, and I've included an
RSS feed with world news.
But what happens is that due to the news item (that's what I can come
up with?) about Iran, Pakistan, etc I'm only getting these weird ads in
google adsense like for instance at this moment:

Military Journal Under $7
101 Homeland Security Guarantees Army. Navy. Air Force. Marines.

Terrorism - U.S. Hatred?
Prophetic Warfare Against America God's Endtime Purpose & Why?

Great Novel on Terrorism
Sailing Adventure Biological Attack A Must Read This Summer

Pro-Troops/Con-this war?
Finally, a song and site for you! Join Our Virtual Candlelight Vigil

Political Forums
Have your say on the issues today in world of politics.

Is there anything I can do about it because it's driving me nuts..
I'm using joomla in combination with:
Joomlaspan Google AdSense 2.0

Thanks in advance!!

Take all the domains above and lead them to excluded domain (see below).
Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to prevent ads from being excluded
based on theme or keywords. You can tackle your competition and avoid it
from penetrating your site though (in my case, Microsoft spreading FUD via
AdSense in Linux pages).

* Log in to AdSense

* "AdSense for Content" tab

* "Competitive Ad Filter" menu entry

Hope it helps,

Don't combine random RSS feeds on a page with Google Adsense - it
encourages bizarre ads to be served. If you have to, stick the RSS in an
<iframe> where Google won't see it so prominently.
