Default Is it me, or....... advertising

Is anyone else having this issue? After starting a thread on Bosso drum sticks recently, I have noticed that about one in six (or so) ads on my part of the website are for them. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it me or are they doing a lot of advertising? It's not offensive because I would really like to try a pair.

It's called targeted advertiseing. They track what you are viewing and what pages you have visited and use that to adjust the ads you see.

It's targeted advertising. Whatever you put into Google or type often gets latched onto by cookies (delicious delicacies - sorry - small data packets from websites) and relevant advertising is sent to you. Right now, somebody is trying to sell me a Fiat 500 (fat chance, I love my Fiesta) and a Dell laptop (fat chance, I'm definitely a Mac guy). It's not always spot-on!

I've genuinely never been on a dating site in my life, not even out of curiosity, yet I'm frequently insulted with "senior dating" site ad's, & all manor of ageist crap from funeral savings schemes & other stuff that offers me a free clock radio! The latest one informs me that "Debbie is just 3 miles away", You gotta be kidding - right. Have you seen Debbie? :( :( :(

I seem to get ads for sales on womens clothing and undergarments in perticular (no idea, I don't really even look at porn which is the only thing that I could think of that may get those), recording gear (on gearslutz a lot so... yeah) and the spanish version of optmum online (no idea).

How funny. I'm getting exactly the same thing. Bombarded with mature age dating site banners. I wondered what was up and what I may have been looking at that prompted them into thinking I wanna meet lonely old divorcees. I already have one wife.......one is most definitely enough for any man. I know I'm not actively seeking another one. What the hell would I want suffer twice the grief for?

A while back, on another forum, someone posted a link to a google site. The site let you view the profile they had on you.
I can't find the link anymore though - they must have pulled it.

A most valid point, but one that's completely lost on Mrs Simple.

Now that's worth finding, although I'd probably be horrified at a dispassionate profile creation of me.

I'm 52, & as far as I can make out, this particular Debbie never did anything. It would seem they believe there's a "different" standard of attractiveness in a rural area :( Perhaps Google know I like "The Grateful Dead"!!!!

I'll second that. Good one! Clock radios were wildly expensive in the late 1970s. I recall like $79.99 or soemthing like that. Of course I had to have one. Everyone did. The iClockRadio of the times. You could even set the alarm clock to play music instead of an annoying buzzer to wake you up! :)

Yes, & then there was the Rolls Royce of all bedside accoutrements, the 'Golbin Teasmade". Of course, Goblin was morphed to Gobbling & the poor device was consigned to the smutty joke history book.

Debbie is three miles from me. That might put her in the River Thames (insert filthy joke here). Now I like older women (and one or two in particular) but 'Debbie' is rather pushing the matter.

Apparently she's only three miles from me too. That would mean there's only 6 miles seperating all of us. Disney was right. It really is a small world after all!!

Right, that's it - we need to get to the bottom of this Debbie character. See if you can all take a screenshot of this "babe" so we can compare & see if she really can spread it as wide as Pocket suggests ;) ;) ;)

Unfortunately, everyone seems to be trying to sell me Fiats, Minis or credit rating agencies. Debbie is absent currently!

Debbie's on to us. Now everytime I click, I'm getting advertising for cruise ships, Virgin airlines and other holiday related material.......I wonder if I'm meant to take Debbie with me?

I also Googled the sticks but they were too expensive with shipping to bother. Now I see a ton of ads with the stick plastered on the screen.

Debbie goes to family reunions to meet new guys.Hey...it's the cousin you know right vs the brother you don't.

This is in a county where the most confusing day of the year is Fathers day,and the county motto is "Yes ...we have electricity"

Nothin' like a pick up truck in the front yard on cinder clocks that doubles as a planter to grown chewin' tabakee.

Warm weather dental ,AKA Summa teeth.Praise him...and pass the ammunition and bring yer own banjo and guit box,and don't fergit yer two barrel shoot twice gun,for the annuwal squirrel and possum hunting competshun.

Winner gits a new fishin pole,and a jug of uncle Lesters shine....fresh made, hear.

Some of you think that people like this don't exist.........they do

The next level of targeted advertising is going to be an electronic sign that will recognize the type of person that you are and show you an ad targeted just for you. That could be pretty embarrassing.

"Try our new low-cal pizza!"
"Would you like a free sample of our acne cure?"
"Lonely and lovely Asian women await you!"

Oh yes, the future...

I see those Boso ads everywhere too! One time I visited a Mexican restaurant's website for nutritional info (or lack thereof) and for 3 straight days all I saw was Taco Bell ads. No, I don't want to the new Doritos Burrito Crunch Wrap!

Hopefully it doesn't get as bad as this...

I see ads from Sweden's fascist party (Sverigedemokraterna) all over Facebook and the internet. Not sure where they got that from...

I visited Verizon.com a few weeks ago just to update my bookmarks on my new computer. I have been seeing phone ads ever since.
The same thing happened after I visited the Apple.com site to order the computer.
I already bought the computer and I am still seeing the ads two weeks later.

Actually I live in Staten Island,which does have an area or two where incest is best and marrying your step brother or cousin is not unheard of..It's not confined to rural southern states,and I guess,not confined to the US either.LOL

Just how do the Royals maintain a Royal bloodline anyway?

Somebody call ?

I know about targetted advertising. I just bought a new cooker after researching online. Now I'm bombarded with images of cookers. I BOUGHT ONE ALREADY !!

So I've been wracking my brains for months trying to think what on earth I could have been Googling to bring up "those" ads. I thought perhaps it was advertising my services (DRUMMING SERVICES) on muso sites using a certain six letter word beginning with "m" that means not so young any more, and another six letter word beginnging with "f" that denotes my gender. (See, I'm so paranoid, I am not going to use those words anywhere, just in case).

Please tell me Debbie isn't three miles from you too, lol!!!!

I'm guessing "those" ads work on a very basic demographic. Said "service" provider asks for their ads to be targeted at males over 50 for example. From that point out, they're just playing the numbers.

Debbie is upset.
She is miss-understood.
In her original 'lonely hearts' ad, she thought that she had typed:

" Debbie is only three smiles away "
