How NOT to target Your Google Adsense Ad! LOL, pic inside!

40 replies
Okay, so I was searching for cheesecake recipes & tips, as my son wants one for his birthday. I can understand two of the ads, but not the other.

I'm no adsense expert though...

    WTF?
    I can only assume there's a certain product called cheesecake that has nothing to do with actual cheesecake.
    lol
    It was funny.

    Well from experience I can tell you that many times google shows ads related to your previous searches rather than related to the content of the page you are viewing

    LOL, funny! I usually get such wrong ads with google. But not like this one. That ad is missing some precious clicks for the "true" interested users. :p

    @Legitincomes,
    I hope you know that adsense ads also take your recent search history + websites visited into account. Thats how they serve interest based ads.

      I can assure you, I was not searching for anything related to the ad in the #2 position. LOL

      I was also upstairs on the family computer in the kitchen, so I sure hope no one else was either (and I'm 99.99% sure they weren't)!

    It appears that adsense misinterpret the meaning of cheesecake or there got to be beat hollow with value identify, which caused this. Though it was actually peculiar.

    AdWords often puts out results of terms that you have previously searched for. I'm just sayin'!

    Sometime these ads are really embarrassing.Google adsense have to do some more tasks on it and I am sure they are working on providing more relevant ads.

    And the answer is...

    Graham Crackers?

    Sounds odd but they are used as the crust for many cheesecakes. And their original use was as part of a "Graham Diet", which purported to suppress "unhealthy carnal urges".

    Graham cracker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So maybe this is a targeted ad after all! Either that or someones been playing on your computer, in which case I suspect you'll be getting a "discreet" package in your mailbox soon!

    I don't want to cause a lot of friction with the members here, but this kind of advertising rubs me the wrong way. I'm not certain I can put my hand on what I like least about it, although it's probably standing tall for everyone to see.

      No need to worry about causing friction with other members, Mark. I know that this ad aroused your suspicions, but remember, most of us are adults who are capable of taking matters into our own hands. You see, when we're jerked around, we don't go limp and just sit there. Instead, we're inclined to stand tall, make a fist, and shake down whatever rises up before us. So, I recommend you become rigid and strong, and otherwise try to tend to your own affairs.

        I agree with you 100%.

        ...and once I thought about it some more, I don't mind telling you that I became mildly interested. The more I contemplated it, the more interested I became. I thought about it again and again and became very interested. Then, shortly after hitting the peak of my interest... I was almost immediately not interested at all.

        Too funny. What's even funnier are the people that miss the humor in this and the post you were responding to.

        Let's not beat around the bush. To be blunt, masturbation is a technique learned only by hands on experience.

        I wonder if CheapLubes.com has an affiliate program?

    I guess the theory behind this, is the text is boring and there is no actual recipe of cheesecake, so click any of the above ads and get your recipe instead.
