Why do I suddenly get Match.com ads on every page here! LOL!

How do I tell them I am happily married (for 13 years now!) and couldn't handle another woman if they sent one to me? I would much rather they would back off and let me see tech ads again!

Ooh, wait, BMW ad now. I just needed to gripe about it!

Why can't you add a file to the forum topic? Hmmm, Mr. Moderator?

I'm going to blame Google's AdSense program for the misplaced advertising. It's probably just 3GM tied into other places that we visit such as Facebook or Twitter, a social connection media ect.. At least you know Match.com wants to help if you get lonely. ;)

Ugh, started a response earlier and had to quit because one of my boys gashed his leg bad enough on a piece of porcelain that he needs stitches. I've got him resting until Mom get's home in a couple minutes, and then I'll run him up to the ER.

Anyway, it looks like Google's appropriate ad matching method seems to have either loosened the rules or just outright forgotten them recently. Part of why I took graphic ads off of my sites, after a younger viewer was offered ED drugs. Ad Words is still OK, and obviously attaches to words which keeps them fairly site oriented.

Even their pristine white search page suddenly has a black strip across the top for the menu items, and the mobile web search is full of everything now! Reminding me of Yahoo! going crazy a decade ago.

Six stitches, and no swimming for two weeks. And we have a full sized pool, seriously, straight across the street from our house. As in I can watch my kids swim from the recliner in the living room.

I'm not used to seeing a black menu background in Google.com. I just don't like it; it does not suit my taste at all. But oh well. Well, one of my alternatives is to switch to bing.com, but then I typed www.google.com without thinking about it when doing searching in the web. From my experience with Google/Bing, I think that the quality of search results are better in Google than in Bing when it comes to anything being computer-related.

One thing I've done recently is use CCleaner, Options, Cookies, and just keep cookies that you need, such as bankofameria.com, 3dgameman.com, zdnet.com, etc. (hint: type "bankofamerica," select all of it in the list, and click "->"; do the same for 3dgameman, zdnet, etc.). Once done, select Cleaner, make sure you have "Cookies" checked, "Analyze" if you wish, and then "Run Cleaner." You can delete Flash cookies, too.

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

I use Advanced SystemCare, and it has the same features. I've noticed that the less often I wipe out my cookies, the less often I get Match.com ads. After a week, I start to get Newegg and stuff like that.

Google is looking at my cookies. If it eats any, I'm going CRAZY!
