Adsense Goof?

I don't know whether to get my feathers ruffled or die laughing. I just created a blog named Herbally Yours. The first post is about the benefits of garlic. The key words were, herbs, spice, food, nutrition, natural healing. I have an adsense gadget on that blog and when I viewed the blog, the adsense ad said "Dirty Sexy Money is back on ABC". Now adsense is supposed to display ads relevant to your keywords. I did a double take, scratched my head for a moment and removed "spice" from the key words. That did it. Looks like myLot isn't the only place your have to be careful what you type!

Too funny! I wonder if you used the word 'spices' instead of 'spice' would it work like you expected.

I hadn't thought about that. When I get a few more posts up I'm sure some spices will be in the list and I'll see then. Thanks

Yeah, I'm laughing now, but I sure was bumfuzzled there for a while. I'm afraid nobody else is going to see it. Since I took spice out of the keywords it's acting like it should.

This was incredibly comical. I suppose you really have to consider your keywords before using them. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, I would think they would be more prudent and not have that sort of associations for common place words. Funny story though.
