AdSense for Content International

So far I know what happens if the system cannot display targeted ads in context with the content of a page written in English, Spanish, Czech and Hungarian. As far as I could see English pages display non-profit organization ads, while in other languages Google does a kind of self-advertisement: Different quiz like questions are displayed and linked to specific Google query. So the visitor lands on an informative Search Engine Result Page which has the answer for the question. Thus Google promotes the vanilla Google Web Search feature, and manifests how useful tool a search engine can be (instead of showing ads of local NGOs). All in all it' obvious that this feature in other languages is not the same as defined here.

If you know the right keywords you can push a snippet of your page to these SERPs, thus getting a few extra visitors. That's the reason why these questions can be interesting for webmasters too, even if PSAs don't pay for CTR.

The AdSense for Content is available for webpages written in the following languages, so I will have to seek for some more PSAs to make this collection complete. Stay tuned or comment this post if you have spotted PSAs in other languages!
