So I have been tweaking the ads that are running on the site — I want to stay away from the junk, and keep them relevant and not-too-annoying (I did see one schlock text ad, which I killed.)
I keep seeing a Barbados ad on the site, and I wonder if it has anything to do with my recent trip there — do ad servers somehow hunt for cookies? Can they tell I searched for specific info on something, and then serve me ads on that topic? Very Minority Report (and a little creepy).
Let me know if you see any really ugly or inappropriate ads. Grab a screen shot and a copy the URL, send it to The Big Picture -at- Optonline.net, and I will kill that ad.
