Does anyone else get this photo 'popping' up on the right hand side of your SD pages? I believe it's an ad for online games but since I don't play, I wonder why are they targeting my views? The actual image is much larger and 'hits you in the eye' so to speak.

I went searching for the right size and found it... just to give you a better idea of what I'm seeing.

Thanks for all your input.

LagartijaVerde grin has solved my problem so I'm removing the graphic.

  • What sites have you been visiting? :-} It's a fantasy social online game. I haven't noticed it if it is there. Do you view other blogs?. - 0083f5dc Jul 12, 2013 flag

  • Hey Jl...I don't havemuch time between work, studying spanish, walking the dog and cooking for friends. I visit spanish learning sites. I can list them on one hand. I google pics for SD, do they count that? - 0095ca4c Jul 13, 2013 flag
  • I actually don't know. I was just teasing you:) - 0083f5dc Jul 13, 2013 flag
  • Hi...I knew you were joshing. I actually thought that maybe I was the only one since no one else has mentioned it. I guess I can only hope for equal opportunity if that is the case. - 0095ca4c Jul 13, 2013 flag

Get Adblock Plus, Run it in Firefox. You'll never see an ad again.

The ads appear based on the sites that have been visited on your computer. I noticed this same thing the other day.

If you share a computer that could explain why you're seeing ads for things outside of your normal surfing habits.

  • HA! jlwilso mentioned tires in her post and now I see ads for tires. Apparently ads also appear based on the content of our posts. GMail does this as well. - rodneyp Jul 13, 2013 flag
  • Hi. That's what I thought but I don't share my computer and I don't play online games or visit gaming sites which is the audience this ad is trying to attract. - 0095ca4c Jul 13, 2013 flag

So what am I doing wrong , why am I out of the loop , is there someone

out there being discriminating , if not even insulting to the ancients by

failing to display images like that , are they considered too inflammatory ?

When one considers the amount of advertising that I receive offering me

enhancements of a body part which has long since disappeared into the

realms of fantasy and historical incorrectness. But my imagination is still

working at full capacity , so please allow me the occasional motivational

involvement in the world of visionary excitement.

  • Hello amigo...please, you're welcome to her. She's doing absolutely nothing for me :-) If you want one of your own, you'll have to start talking about her/it/whatever...Rodney thinks the ads are based on the content of our posts. - 0095ca4c Jul 13, 2013 flag

I have been watching my ads since you asked this question. The advertisements are for tires and home improvement. One is for cheese? My husband works inside sales at a hardware store and works on our house occasionally. He is always looking up tools and building materials. He also visits the "Discount Tire" site a lot, because between he and his dad they have way too many old vehicles.
