There is no way you can do that! You may want to try and change the content of your page which might result in serving of more relevant ads.

It also has a fraud prevention system. You can put some php code on your site which will cause your adsense ads NOT to show if for example someone had visited your site 10 times in the last hour and/or they had clicked more than 3 times on an adsense ad. It works. You can modify the variables to whatever you want. You can specify alternate ads to show when the Adsense ads do not show. The instructions are written in techy terms. I had to bug the develloper to give me some clear instructions but in the end it really works. Costs $50.
This got me wondering. Why doesn't Adsense just build this in? Some guy wrote a script which practically eliminates click fraud for $50. Adsense cannot just build this in to their system? They could guarantee their advertisers fraud free ads and peace of mind for publishers.
Well of course they would lose millions of dollars because they make so much money from false clicks. Easier just to disable publisher accounts and keep all the money. Adsense needs some competition big time.
