Adsense update with disappointing results

This past weekend was “blog cleanup” as I am in the process of optimizing WordPress on my site and updating the plugin that manages Google’s Adsense — at one time I thought they were non-intrusive, but recently have become obnoxious. Unfortunately after tweaking the size and types of ads they seem even worse that before.

I’ve started to blacklist a few (dating and adult gaming sites, toenail fungus, etc), but more continue to show up and clutter the blog. I’m tempted to eliminate Adsense altogether, but for the moment will continue the tweaking process and will remove as many as possible using the “sensitive categories” option. For those willing to put up with this clean up process, “thank you” … and for those offended, perhaps add an “ad-blocker” add-on to your browser before blacklisting MyDesultoryBlog for good.
