Tax Season Is Here: Google AdSense Ads H&R Block Ads

How do we know that tax season is just around the corner? Not because it is a month after the new year, but because we are seeing tons of H&R Block ads promoting their TaxCut program. I noticed it on my blog as Flash ads, and I described how to close out AdSense flash ads, a technique that felt very empowering, but yet only lasted a short while.

A DigitalPoint Forums thread is trying to figure out a few things.

(1) How to block them (2) Are they paying well (3) Why they are coming up if they are not relevant to a specific page of content

Right now, no one has posted a secure way to block them with the exclusion tool. TaxCut.com did not work, I wondered if they tried hrblock.com. I suspect the ads pay pretty well, since they are overpowering all the other ads out there. Finally, I do not know why Google dropped the contextual relevancy aspect, and are showing these ads, even without them matching the contextual relevancy of the content of the page.
