I think that the Google ads are somewhat personalized based on your search history.
The ones I keep seeing certainly are.

With my understanding, that statement is usually correct. But I haven't done any searching on the Philipines except for about 4 years ago when I was doing research on a possible dive trip there. And I haven't been to any type of dating sites......at least not since 2003 when I met my wife on Match.com.

I can't believe those 2 incidents from that long ago would now be flagged for me.....plus I use Yahoo as my search engine.

I answered the ad and found a beautiful girl, who is unemployed. Her previous job was an RV service mechanic in some Asian country, where RVs are few and far between. Due to the world's economy, her position was "redlined" and she took to the internet looking for work. My wife and I want to adopt her as our mechanic. Any advise from other owners of "Asian mechnics" hired from the ads referenced on this "thread"?

Just a quick warning, I did do a search on "adult campgrounds". My wife and I have no children and are "middleaged". Apparently, "adult campgrounds" are generally "clothing optional".

I wont do that search again

Ads are served based on your location, other stuff you've been searching for and occasionally the content on the page you are currently looking at. This is why you often see ads for tires and hitches on towing threads. An advertiser can also direct google (or other ad server) to display ads on a specific site that they want to reach out to. We're working to have this blocked but it takes some time.

That's awesome. I had the ad shown and then installed the adblocker, now no more ad.

Thanks

Can't We All Get Along?

Let's see...there are serious replies and there are the "rest of us". If we wiseguys and girls are ever in the same campground at the same time, they will have to close the place down due to all the "punny business" going on. As to the clothing optional campgrounds --- you first. Hats off to you all...that's my committment.THE END

It all makes sense...

I just enlarged the screenshot at the beginning of this thread, and directly under the ad in question is a thread about "pimping". Yes, it was "pimping" an RV, but that may be one reason the ad was rotated in.
No, I won't speculate if the "ad adder" was just trying to help us pimp...

That add has never shown up on my screen.
Good to know that my DH hasn't been 'shopping' online for a replacement.
