It really has nothing to do with ATS proper. The ads can target you a number of different ways, including your IP address. I often get "targeted"
advertising for a place called Auburn, which is nearly 100 miles away. But my ISP has major trunk lines that come into that city before they branch
out, so the ads think I'm "in" Auburn.
Your browsing history is tracked. I looked for generator a few months ago and it took a month or two for the generator ads to stop. I also was
targeted by state so that I got a bunch of union/seiu ads wanting me to contact my state legislators about cuts in, you know, union jobs. Happily,
with the state election over those things stopped. I also have noticed quite a few ads lately for "The Boeing Store," of all things. I have no idea
why they are tracking me for that, but Boeing is pretty close, so maybe they think I'm in the market for a hat or a hoodie. beats me sometimes.
Most conspiracies aren't. You just found another one.
