Topic tags/keywords: question

I was wondering why there are random ads showing in this site even though I am already logged in . The ads that are coming out are not even wood related.

They pay the bills. This Site is also connected to Google’s Network Of “AdChoices” that little Blue Triangle in the Upper Right corner.

Google is also the Search Engine for this Site. Whatever you put on here Instantaneously goes onto the Google Network.

The Type Of Ad Content You See is probably/might be related to other sites you have visited otherwise known as “Cookies”

Before you get a slew of these you could consider using an “AdBlocker”.

Right now there is an ad at the top for “Free Rooftop Solar Panels” by “pure-energies .com.” I was on their site last night researching Solar Panels. (Cookie)

On the right side is an ad for “Take The HUGGIES Challenge”. NO! I wasn’t on there. ...LOL..

Also the Server you use could have something to do with it. You’ll probably be told “Google Chrome” is the best to stop ads.

This is interesting. At the bottom is/was an ad for “WalzCraft” Custom Millwork, when I ran my Cursor over the top right corner I got “Don’t show this Ad Again. When I Clicked on that I got this:


Just out of curiosity I clicked on “ads settings” and got this, which is only part of the page you’re suppose to fill in with “ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION”. NO Thank You!


Sorry “Surfside” got a little long winded.
