GFCHIPS.COM

Why is this fourm still letting a company rip is members off. 60-70hp and 7mpg is not possible with a 25cent resister, and will mess your car up and possibly blow the motor. It shows a complete lack of respect for its members.

Most ads you see relate to where you spend a lot of your time on the internet. I see mostly all AM ads, CJ Pony parts ads, and pretty much whatever else i was looking at on the internet during the day. There is no way for the forum to control the ads you see.

Fair enough, I see the "ads by Google" now.

I'm not a Google adwords expert, but I can't imagine a site owner can't exclude a certain ad if they desired to do so.

I would think so too, especially one aimed at ripping enthusiast off.

They don't control your ad content your browser does, they don't even know what ads everyone is seeing because it varies per person

I have a very hard time believing that, knowing what I know about the kind of data Google mines with their invasive cookies.

Go searching around the Internet at different products you can buy, then come back to ME and look at the ads, I bet at least one is from the last product you looked at. The ads when creating the site are only seen as placeholders, the site has no way of controlling what you see, it is all based on your search history.

I have a very good understanding of how cookies and targeted advertising work. I also know that Google keeps detailed analytics on the "client" that views and/or clicks the ads from specific sites - this is how they know how much to pay each site. With that said - it should be very easy for a site to opt-out from a specific ad or ad source/category.

How could they opt out of specific ads if they don't know what ads a person is seeing? I bought my Mustang a month ago, and now I look up a recipe for salmon and there's an American Muscle ad in the middle of the page. Wouldn't have been there a month ago, they can't prevent an ad.

Like I said - I'm not 100% sure. I could be wrong here - but I think all the above arguments on both sides are fueled by speculation. That said - if you have absolutely zero control over what targeted ads show on your site - I can't imagine why anyone would use Google ads. It seems like your competitors' ads would always be shown on your page.

I got my *** reamed by an admin on here once for suggesting that someone buy a product that wasn't from a supporting vendor. If that was such a big deal, why would the be willing to have non-supporting vendors ads display on the site? That wouldn't make much sense to me.
