Question about PT ads
Old 06-05-2022, 02:46 PM

Since weíve been discussing the PT site and the ads, I have a question:
Who decides what ads we see? Are they related to the site or to the individual person using the sight?

Itís something that never occurred to me before, and I only vaguely notice the sidebar and bottom ads. But in the last three days, an ad for what I assume is for a ďdatingĒ site (read this as probably porn) keeps popping up at the bottom.

I never click on them because Iím afraid of a ton of follow up spam.

My ads are usually Zulily. Things I have looked at, and things I think Zulily "thinks" I would buy.

I was getting ads for pallets for a few days. I haven't googled those nor am I interested in them. At one time I was getting an ad for guns. No interest and no googling.

I usually donít even ďseeĒ them. So I went back and looked for them in different boards and threads. I found ads for Hit and Miss and American Express in the lounge and Ashley Furniture in the Retired Board.

I don't know how they decide on the ads. I saw Universal Studios Hollywood and Vionic canvas shoes, and just now it changed to Charles Schwab. Oops, it is now an ad for YETI. Now I'm seeing a FEMA ad to make plans for a natural disaster. Go figure.

I'm getting ads asking if I have an interest in teaching or education!

Nope, I'm retired and I don't google colleges!
