    Anyone getting a lot non related ads all of a sudden?
    @Mikie did something change? Suddenly getting a lot of un-related / non-related adds?
    Just curious if anyone else noticed.
    And yes they are a bit odd to me like a lot of Singles ads ... and all smack and joking aside .... I am probably the most boring web guy... Bikes, Tech, News, Coffee, Movies, Electronics... etc.... maybe that equals dude looking for it on the side from the Brilliant People at Cambridge Analytics...

    Yup. I don't surf porn and I'm not looking for women, but I keep getting ads for Muslimas and Filipino women popping up here on IMTB.

    But that still beats all of the e-bike crap that pops up on Pinkbike!

    I get all kinds of weird stuff. The singles stuff pops up ever once in a while then goes away. The Ads from Google, (I believe are "supposed" to be based off your internet surfing habits). I have found that to be true in some cases as I may search out a particular product then I notice I start getting Ads related to those products. But then I will get these very off the wall Ads I can't explain. Maybe based off what Cathy surfs through our IP address, who knows!

    All I know is I can't tell you to click on those ADs ever once in a while as imtbtrails gets paid for Ads simply clicked on. AdSense by Google pays the website who displays those Ads a small payment every time someone simply clicks on an Ad. I can't tell you click on Ads as that would be a violation of the contract since Advertisers are hoping that when you do click on an AdSense Ad that there is a possibility you might buy there product. Whether someone does buy or does not buy, does not change the payment arrangement to the website (imtbtrails) for displaying the Ads. If someone were to click on an Ad, the money that goes to the website (imtbtrails) would be used to pay for the maintenance, upkeep and upgrades to the site, thus... the reason why imtbtrails has a free membership....:sneaky:

    So I hope I am making it clear that I am not telling you to click on Google AdSense Ads ever once in a while... simply to keep imtbtrails a free membership site... :whistling:

    I will make sure not to do that so that I can't continue to enjoy a free website. Or maybe I won't not do that. :confused:

    Oh. I clicked on the ad for the class action lawsuit involving faulty toilet connectors in good faith. We recently had bathrooms remodeled, so I was just checking. You can never be too careful with toilet connectors.

    Now, on to the Latina singles!

    edit: Too late! My latinas are gone. I'm on to Filipinos!

    And I can't say that I purposely keep my ad blocker off so Those ads get served and I would never click on one like a Jenson add or something
