I post on a battery thread and a MotoBatt ad pops up.
I post on an RC Helicpter video thread in the tavern and an RC Helicopter ad pops up.
I was on the work computer so ad blockers are not installed.
Was this intentional or just chance? Are ads now pinned to thread subjects or more to browser history?
That could be very interesting for target marketing various forums if pinned to subjects.

Ad blockers are a +. I don't see any ads. The Motobatt BTW seems to be a good battery. I have had mine for a little over 2 years.

Advertisers do this on purpose. Of course, the presumption is that there will be a greater chance in their ads being viewed if they pertain to a topic the reader has shown an interest in.

????? I don't see any ads after I login. Changing threads, topics, videos...nada! Lucky I guess. Only defensive move is that I keep pop ups blocked. :D

they have probably loaded another intelligent layer onto the board that tracks and analyzes what you type in and tries to display relevant ads based on that.

at least you are getting hit with some worthwhile suggestions which can result in revenue for the site if you click on one of those links...

there isn't anything in the cyber world that isn't tracked and tagged

You can prevent those tracking ads from popping up by using this program: http://www.abine.com/ I have it installed on my browser and it works great. It currently has blocked almost 150,000 tracking attempts since I installed it about a year ago. 17,000 of them are social sites which show you the nefarious deeds of google yahoo and others like facebook and twitter. I don't even have a facebook or twitter account. Which shows you they will track anyone.
