    Advertisements

    Is anyone getting advertisements at the top of the page? Is this just some program that snuck onto my computer, or is it Talksox? I have an ad up there for "Meet Sexy Korean Women". Now, I'm totally okay with sexy Korean women, but, um, what's going on?

    Before I caved and got adblock there was all kinds of shit up there. Ads for penis enlargment showed up regularly.

    I am assuming it is targeted advertising, which I really don't like. I was reading the wikipedia page on Korean baseball players a while ago, and then that popped up, and I was reading a thread on another message board where a user was complaining about a knee injury, and now there is a knee pain relief ad up there. But why did it start today?

    yes, I have been getting the ads too.

    There was a big banner up when we transitioned to the new site, basically saying that if you aren't logged in, you get advertisements. If you are logged in, I have no idea why you're getting them.

    There have always been ads on Talksox to help me pay for the site. There was a google ad on the top of the page on the old pre-hacked version and I finally got around to replacing it (its in a slightly different location) yesterday.

    They're placed there by me but the content is served by Google so they are tailored to each person. There's a big banner at the top for guests and I hope that the new small text ad at the top for everyone isn't too intrusive.

    Despite my complaining, I really don't care all that much. I just wanted to know why they suddenly showed up yesterday. I'm just glad it's not some malware program or something.

    Nissan Rogue at the top, Honda Accord at the bottom. It's almost as if google knows about my shitbox car.

    The ads on here aren't overwhelming. I looked at patsfans once and almost had a stroke.

    Targeting ads is dumb when it's like this: I window shop hotels a lot. Most of the time, I decide not to book some place. So now every time I go to Yahoo, I get ads for hotels I have no intention staying at. I know I can just delete cookies, but it's annoying.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    Though I try to find the answer to all the questions they ask
    Though I know it's impossible to go living through the past

    I am getting ads for Mariano Rivera jerseys and mail-order Chinese brides. It is obviously just grabbing proper nouns from pages I am visiting with no context.

    Yea, well if anyone wants to just invent a better way to do targeted ads you'd pretty much become an overnight billionaire. Any ideas?
