I keep seeing Maryland ticket ads in the threads here. Does everyone see that or are the ads cookie based possibly from Google Map search or something of that ilk?

I'm seeing ads for dating women over 50 and FilipinoCupid.com (and some work-related stuff).

I can refinace with a low rate of 2.875%.

Ads these days are getting crazy. I am moving to PA in about 16 months so I was doing some job searching on Monster and Career Builder and sure enough I jump on here not 2 mins later and sure enough what do I see...adds for Career Builder for the exact jobs I was searching for!

I'm guessing the Ladies over 50 probably have back issues. Perhaps IlliniSpine or other doctors on this site have seen the images and can comment

:laugh:

Right now I have life insurance and furniture, I'm 25 so insurance seems odd.

I'm just glad I'm not getting Richard Mourdock and Sherrod Brown ads anymore. I'm in Illinois for goodness sakes!

If you become a donor to the site you will see no more ads.

ESPN ad for the Clippers game. (Oh the humanity of it all.)
Ink cartridges.

I was at ESPN site and looked up the info to reorder ink yesterday.

So the cookies tell it which ads to post. The ironic part is I no longer need whatever they are advertising so it seems like a waste other than it helps out Dan. I am all for that.

Every once in a while I hit the ad link to Dan gets some credit for the web hit.

It's adsense, based on the content of the page and your browsing, search, etc. history. Run by google, which knows quite a bit about you.

a good reason to frequently delete cookies and browser history if this is an issue for someone.

It has now been determined that Dan is an "Insider" to Delany. He knew the B1G was pulling in Maryland long before the news broke.
