    What is it with the ads at the top of the website lately? Or am I the only one getting them...

    Date Single Moms
    Meet Asian Women
    Meet Your 40+ Match

    And many more. It used to be MA ads, now they’re just trying to get me to cheat on my wife :)

    I get those, and ma ads, and utility suppliers, and surveys.

    But most worryingly...

    Just so wrong on so many levels...

    To a certain extent it is. But remember sex sells, I should say out-sells. Which do you think pays the most?

    I get those too and I do not visit any sites that would make google think I wanted advertisements like that. So I am more inclined to it is something the forum owners let in for the revenue; I don't get them on the other forum site I most frequent.

    This.

    I get (badly) targeted ads here and other places - usually related to stuff I've either recently bought or researched.

    There's ads related to site content too, whether I've got 'history' or not.

    This is the only place I get all the dating ads...

    Add Date Local Moms to my list, as that’s the one here as I’m typing this.

    I guess they think I have a MILF fetish. I guess there’s worse things...

    I currently have "explore Japanese women" - I didn't think they were usually big enough to warrant an expedition.

    Still, nicer picture than the one I posted above ;)

    I get them on my phone, but not on my laptop. I have no idea why. Now I'm curious to see what they're advertising.

    I am not paying attention...can't afford to.
    But generally speaking, the ads correlate either to the topic, or to your own search and browse history....

    I should not have a dating site there though....but then again, I am glad it's not heavy on the naked men....:muted:

    Well, I just had an ad for a handheld espresso machine.

    Seeing as I've conducted no searches for that (or overweight firemen) I'm disinclined to believe it's history linked ;)

    Do you share a google account with someone who might be searching “overweight firemen drinking coffee?”

    Actually with your name?

    If it's just the generic version, I've had that - and "search birth records".

    And travel ads.

    The only ones I can form any link to are energy suppliers (I did some searching a few months back) and welding/machining supplies (always looking at that sort of thing).
