Google ads are generated based on your browsing habits, not by the Blazertalk website. If you go to a lot of political sites, Google knows and gives you ads it thinks you will like.

I suspect some of it is targeted by the site content as well. I wouldn't see this on a Virginia Commonwealth University forum, but Alabama is mentioned a lot here so it's easy to assignment of the visitors live in Alabama.

But again, I don't think GTS or any admins have much say on the ads other than "no adult content"... Although I suppose the Gun Supporters for Shopping Mall Outcasts ads are arguably "adult".

Strangely enough I saw Moore ads on Facebook that weren't filtered out.

I use an ad blocker on this site so thrash me.

I see two ads: one for Brookwood Cardiovascular, one for McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. I'm thinking this site shows a certain profile. A really wide profile. Never seen a doughnut ad though, so I can guess who isn't reading this.

RE: Huh?
Roy Moore's ads indicate that the strongest "four letter word" in Alabama is still "LIBERAL" as though most voters in this state would know one if they saw one. In my lifetime, the most liberal politicians in Alabama were "Big Jim" Folsom in the 50s and George Wallace after 1972. I haven't seen one since.

I used to have a big pine tree in my yard. It was too close to my house, so I had it cut down. The guy who did it used a chainsaw. The chainsaw was invented in Scotland. Scotland is also the birthplace of golf. Tiger Woods is back. Tigers are an endangered species.

Am I doing it right?

IMHO, electing Roy Moore may be the chainsaw that cuts down Alabama wood and feeds us to the tigers of the future. He may be "The Last King of Scotland" for our state. Are you a LIBERAL? How would you define one (without quoting Trump).
