Anyone Notice How The Ads Are Matched To The Post
Original Message   Jan 31, 2005 7:39 am
I have noticed that the ads are matched to the content of the posts.  For instance:

Paula's Boxer Post has ads for dogs.

Termy's website post has ads for Lawn Care.

Paula's parent post has ads for moms and aging parents.

The garage door opener story has ads for garage doors.

Pretty interesting.  I will be watching for the more unusual posts to see which ads match up.

That's because the ads are produced by Google, who match the ads based on the text in the topic.  So if someone writes pron, in the topic, watch out!

Ooops, I just did.
