I could believe my eyes when I seen a ad for the Honda Civic forum on this forum. Whats up?

The ads are generated based on your preferences. The way it works is google ads looks at where you have browsed and then they try to provide you with ad content based on your web surfing habits!

How do you know that? It's not an exact science, you could have researched a Honda generator and gotten a car ad... Some have reported getting female under-garments ads, wonder what they were surfing to get them?

Re: Honda Civic

I've had the Honda deal pop up on mine too, and I know I have not searched anything Honda, not there is anything wrong with that......

Re: Honda Civic

Below is what I see. I think they are just pushing the Honda site. Not a big deal.

You're right that wouldn't be a google ad. Where is it that you are seeing the ad? I know they out some stuff on the red horizontal bars. They haven't even added it to the site links at the bottom of the page with all the others.

Re: Honda Civic

Run an ad blocker.
I've been running an ad blocker for a long time (since shortly after the sites got taken over) and haven't seen one since. All the ads listed along the right side have been invisible.
No pop-ups EVER either. I almost forgot what they are.
