I get ads from hardware stores, realtors and investment brokers - All of which I don't shop at or would invest in or allow them to 'care' for my money.

That's awesome. Did you just out yourself? Definitely targeted, my ads always correspond to other searches I've done.


Out himself as what, someone who looks at porn? OH LAWD, THE HORROR

Ooops.
My ads here in JC List used to be all about technology and real estate.
Now since I opened this post, all the ads turned into Russian women.

I just blocked all the advertising from the sensitive categories.
We get our ads from the Google Doubleclick.

Seriously, thanks for the laugh. On the bright side, at least you have a great response if someone calls you out on it.

That's hilarious! If they are targeting me, they are doing a terrible job since I don't see any ads for dapper menswear or affordable apartments in Manhattan.

But if I continue to visit on-line dating sites for gay men, but don't acquire a kept boy or convert to being hetero, I'll continue to get ads for mail order brides?! I don't understand how people make so much money off the internet...

I thought they were targeted also. So I cleared my cookies, cache, and came back without logging on. I got the same ads.

I don't mind.. the women in those ads are nice to look at.

I'd say there is also a certain level of keywords that are used. I know which ads are based on websites that I've been, as those can be rather obvious, it isn't all of them.

I like to have JCList open on my desktop computer at work during the day to follow events, and post messages during lunch. These ads with scantily clad women looking for husbands are a) embarrassing as I share an office and b) irrelevant, as I'm a gay man LOL. I click away and report them, but they keep reappearing.

Has anyone else had to deal with controlling the ads? Any advice? Thanks
