These tags will emphasize to Adsense what portion of your page Adsense should use to find relevant ads:

<!– google_ad_section_start –>
<!– google_ad_section_end –>

You can also block off sections that you do not want to be picked up by Adsense by adding a (weight=ignore) to the start tag:

<!– google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) –>
<!– google_ad_section_end –>

This is handy for blocking out headers, footers, sidebars, menus or whatever portions of your site don;t use your desired keywords. This can also come in handy when you post something on a blog that all of sudden changes all your ads to something wacky.

Be careful though – if you don’t provide enough content within the tags you will actual lose relevancy and may even get stuck with Public Service Ads.
