Default Will Forum catagory, thread title, post content or h1 tags determine

I've heard conflicting advice other places and should have come here first.

Please comment on the importance of each in determining which ads are served by adsense on a forum run by vbulletin or phpbb.

(1) Will it be just overall keyword density regardless of where the words are found on the page.
(2) Forum Catagory
(3) Thead Title
(4) Post content
(5) Opening statement of first post
(6) Website Meta title
(7) H1 tag
(8) H2, H3 will these apply
(9) Copy nearer the top of the page
(10) other

Thanks for the tips

I'd look into AdSense's html comment tags that allow you telling to AdSense which parts of the HTML code are the ones that AdSense should consider to be the main content of the page, thus ignoring irrelevant stuff on the page. There's a whole chapter about this on Google's hel pages, but I think it was something like this:

<!-- google_ad_region_start -->
the main content
<!-- google_ad_region_end -->

In addition to this, if you have popular site, the site itself seems to carry certain targeting criteria as well -- for new threads on our forums, we tend to see stuff like DVD ripper ads even tho the page itself doesn't mention DVD ripping in any way, but our site is one of the main sites in the world in this niche, thus its own name itself carries the targeting criteria for ads.
