I get d'Artagnon at work. I was looking for duck fat of all things. Now it comes up all the time. And yes, I do search for recipes and stuff at work. It's pretty non-partisan and bland, so I consider it safe.

Dartagnan is great. You should buy the wild boar roast. Outstanding.

I didn't think ATS did targeted ads for some reason. The ads always seemed sponsored. Religious, conspiracy, military flashlight, etc...


ATS isn't in charge of the ads. They contract with an ad "service" that does the actual work. This "service" looks at your cookies, determines if there is a "hit" and proceeds accordingly. Some cookies are more persistent than others. I looked at generator ads a while back in my search for a home generator. I saw the ads afterwards for about three months, which seems to be a common amount of time. I have been looking for a car recently, and now I see ads for my own close dealership, which I have visited, as well as others across the country. I have always thought it was a bit strange that when I do my web research, then subsequently buy a product, the ads keep appearing after I have completed my research and purchase. Of course, they don't know (fortunately), but it's still a day late and a dollar short for the advertisers. Try looking for a refrigerator, and you'll see refrigerator ads. It's the nature of the beast. These days I am seeing Trip Advisor ads at the top of ATS because I recently booked a trip with them. I'm flying to Bowling Green, Kentucky in April to pick up that car!

Yes, when I was car shopping about two years ago, it took months for the car ads to knock off.

Heh, n1. Usually 95% of the time I'm just reading the news(political/conspiracy or technology or funny videos/memes). I'm single and only used a dating app once(Zoosk, in 2009). Strange...

Probably related to your online porn viewing habits.

Spelled like an app and no .Com was used. Plus don't even almost all websites have an app anyway nowadays?

Heh, I only knew of it from the old news story. Somebody of high profile got busted when hackers, I think, released user info.

I believe you OP. Google is the Devil and sometimes the algorithm goes all wonky. I saw that Ashley Madison ad too and I definitely am not cheating. Or going to any sort of naughty sites. I think it has to do with those creepy fake news ads that many sites use now where if you just roll over them with your mouse, they pop up. And they are usually pretty dodgy content. Once it pops up, you get tagged. All you can do is keep your computer clean.

I believe you!

It happens to me too, I keep getting an ad for 'How to dispose of bodies' and I'm all like, 'that's odd'.
