annoying site ads

Post by John A. » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:16 am

I'm going to guess that the website ads are auto generated.

Otherwise, I cannot fathom why on earth that amazon is trying to push a bunch of Hillary books. Poor Robert is going to starve to death waiting on the revenue from these firestarters.

The ads are targeted. You just outed yourself as into politics.

Don't feel bad. One guy complained about the gay sex toys ads and posted a screen shot. Everyone knew it was based on his browsing history.

yup. blame google ad-sense for that. someone has been using your computer/browser to look at hillary stuff, and your computer has the tracking cookies to prove it, based on your screenshot.

I look up far more things firearm related. Why doesn't it give me any good ads for stuff that actually interests me.

I guess google isn't as smart as they think they are because I'd never buy one of her books.

I also haven't purchased anything from amazon in a couple of years now. :lol:
