Live Cell Research Ad

I am thinking you might want to vet some of your advertisers. I was here at work on my lunch hour when the attached "Are You Ready" Live Cell Research ad at right showed up in the right sidebar.

Regards,

Matt

These ads are usually a reflection of what you have searched. I just turned off Adblock and got ads for heaters, metal buildings, trailer jacks, campgrounds and stoves. All stuff I searched for in the last short while.

I knew someone was going to pin this back on me.


Actually, this particular ad is for an anti-aging supplement, which is more a reflection on the anticipated site demographic than any particular user. You'll see a lot of ads here targeted to the demographic. If you've ever placed AdSense/Adwords ads you can choose sites or users based on a demographic, and the site owners can specific advertisers if they wish.


I am probably among the younger EscapeForum users.

Those Livecell folks are probably comparing the efficacy of various campaigns. The banner style ad and much more traditional picture of pill bottles. My offense in this case is not with the snakeoil but the barker.

Hey, I am very young too. Well, at least I ain't growed up yet.

I turned ad blocker off, and though now I see ads on the right column, including the bent-over computer girl, when reviewing forum pages for some reason my mouse manages to randomly activate a blank screen. The httm address reads "Ad..." something. Very irritating.

Never noticed, pretty much just ignore ads, but do notice some ads because they are driven by something I searched for.

It is "ads pubmatic.com" that vexes me. Dufus thing just opened itself again without me doing anything. How about it, in-charge web-people?

Firefox with Adblock Plus and FlashBlock. And I may have added a custom rule or two. I see no ads on this forum.

Yes I had Adblock running and it did a heck of a great job blocking ads. Removed it last week because it was over-blocking (?) slowing everything down too much for me.

These are random Google ads that are based on your browsing history, physical location and "other criteria" that Google does not specify.

Not all members see the same ads.
