Not sure everyone gets this ad.....but there is an ad that is for a game (I think) that basically scrolls through bikini pictures.

Are you trying to keep me from coming here while at work?

Ad choices targets you by places you have been shopping on your computer.

Which is why I'm now getting ads for hotels in Rio. You'd think that bikini clad women would accompany that, but no...

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I have been searching for caribbean vacations during boring meetings. Is that why I get it? Trust me, I don't shop for women's clothing.

If the bikini one you are talking about was like a video game or something (they looked animated), I got it on my work computer also and I have no idea why.

Just blame the interns who work late and surf on other people's computers. No worries.

I am totally fascinated with the ads being pushed to me now. More so than most of the actual Twins talk:

flights to the caribean came up right after I typed that here......
FREE BEER (let's see if that works)

I've seen ads for things I have shopped for like running shoes, or certain hardware parts, but there are some somewhat inappropriate ones I occasionally see (like the gaming site for men only). I don't game. It does make it hard to check in during work hours.

I like all the shoe, furniture and home decor ads I see.

In an attempt to test the system, I am searching for free beer, milk, and cheese today, to see if my ads change. I know, these meetings are boring....

Apparently some of the more predictable questions and answers were accidentally deleted.

Please say again, how do you get those bikini ads to show up?

I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

I get ads for that "men only" gaming website, too. They show up at work, and the number of sites I visit there is quite limited--basically Twins sites I'm checking on my lunch break.

I blame it on the demographic profile I'm generating as a visitor to AaronGleeman.com...

Over in another thread, someone was drawing a connection between the ad he was getting for the NRA, and the subject matter of that thread. I just didn't have the heart to 'splain it to him just then, that it probably has more to do with him than with TD or the thread topic.

Google is your friend. Looks like a web-based MMORPG (link goes to the game site.)
