    What's your adverts

    I know these adverts on the Bounce are supposed to be targeted but by f! If they are I'm sure I'd be getting confused.com up a lot! Wasn't so long ago I used to go on a wee clicking frenzy in the hope it would boost click income. At the moment I'm regularly seeing;

    Camera stuff and cruises now and again - fair enough.

    More regularly I'm getting rigid storage solutions, like what farmers use for huts and covering fields. I live in a main door flat in a tenement, the gardens no bigger than a snooker table!

    Find a job with Capita - no thanks. I don't want a job and I'd never willingly do anything through capita.

    But the most common one is ... Meet Muslim singles!!!!! WTF is that about? And no, before you lot start, there's absolutely nothing in my search history or browsing habits that would even be close to me looking for 'singles'.

    So what's your's? Hopefully less annoying than mine!

    What ads on the bounce All I see is the sponsors ads on here.

    And the league is not correct on the home page
    They're gone, not here, forgotten
    The maroon brigade now cry
    The city is now Hibernian
    The team that would not die

    Have you left your gmail/hotmail/Facebook etc... logged in on someone else's ipad or phone?

    I left mine logged in on my wife's ipad and have nothing but dresses from Joe Browns and undies from Boux Avenue following me about the internet for weeks because of her browsing history. Its actually helped me with the Christmas shopping

    If you are getting dating ads, my guess would be that you've left Facebook logged in on something. Your cookies from Facebook will indicate you are male and targeted advertising bots on other sites will tie that to any old thing you, or whoever else on a device you are logged in on, has been looking at online - Muslim has probably been mentioned a lot on here in the many UKIP/world events threads - voila!

    Browsing with Opera on my tab, these ads are just below the sponsorship ones.

    Thought about all these things THB. I'm actually on my work tab just now, no Facebook or email etc. accounts, and no one but me uses my work tab, personal tabs or my phone. We have different log ons on the PC too.

    It's a bit of a mystery some of them. Maybe if they can't target you with relevant stuff they just chuck any old crap at you.

    @Jack you should see those. Only guests do and registered.

    Pm and donators should see them.

    We are using google ads to try gain some money as donations have dried up month to month understandably with present climate.

    I will check yer settings.

    My ads show Breo watches and an ad about selling bikes. Which all makes sense as its stuff I've been looking at online.

    I don't get pop ups was quoting someone else, but I have now sobered up and can't remember who that was, I was merely stating if anyone did get pop ups @JFTB would be ensuring the bounce were being reimbursed.

    my statement is based on personnel info that @JFTB fell in a puddle once but found a fiver @shana will confirm this the guy is a money magnet
