Use Adsense Section Targeting
We all know that relevant ads perform well than non relevant ads. It is normal for a blog to contain lot of irrelevant keywords. For e.g. – if you are writing a post on keyword research and take an example of pet industry in the post. You’d never want Google to show ads related to dog training on your blog based on that example. Adsense Section targeting solves this problem for you. With Section targeting you can tell Adsense the important sections of your blog based on which Google should show the advertisements.
Use Placement Targeting
The other most effective way to increase your Adsense earnings is to enable placement targeting in your account. With help of placement targeting you can select a sub-set of ad units on your blog to display Google Ads. This information is shown to advertisers who want to show their ad on specific places for the website like top leader board or in a box in right column of the blog.
Use Adsense Category Filter
Remove the irrelevant and low paying ad categories using Adsense Category filter in your account. Take a look at the following screenshot to get the idea. Based on the information given in your account you can easily filter the least performing ad categories.

Competitive Ad Filter was introduced by Google so that publishers can block ads of certain websites usually their competitors to appear on their websites. But, you can also use this features to block the low paying ads. Most of the times, sites having poor quality or sites which are made only for Adsense use low paying ads at Google Adsense to get cheap traffic to their sites. To get rid of low paying ads you have to block the ads of these sites. To do this, create an account on AdsBlacklist.com. Put in your domain name and keywords and AdsBlackList will show you the list of 200 MFA sites which you can copy and then block with help of Competitive Ad Filter.
