Of course it could also just be that it didn't have any ads to match your searches so it just through general ads at you.

I don't know much about this topic. Dom's probably the one for this topic, she did SEO if I remember correctly so this probably isn't far off that.

I did order dog food from Chewy.com Friday. Consider

Bingo. Granola bars are basically dog food.

I have ad block, so I don't see YouTube ads anymore.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I just keep getting ads for "Gaia Disclosure" about Hollow Earth crap and the Nazis and aliens.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Yeah, some fucker here turned me on to it in the gaming section. Off to look for it now because attribution is an ethical imperative. Big Grin

That means they show you ads that relate to search history. Like I just clicked a youtube video to see what ad I'd get and I literally got the place I work at's ad, I assume because I go to their website a lot to check my payslip and roster. Pretty much all ads I get are related to my google searches or sites I've been too etc..
You know me well enough to know I haven't been Googling granola bars. Dodgy

Although it was on the negative side, you did recently make a camping reference on this very forum... and you are sensible when it comes to health.

Also, I think they think any female above a certain age, who seems to explore pretty groovy things and who obviously has her shit together about health, is bound to buy granola bars sooner or later.

Think of it this way ... someone wants a piece of your action, lady. Wink

Oh man....do I have you snowed. The only way I would opt for a granola bar would be if it's the last thing in the vending machine...and was dipped in chocolate. Tongue

I am more a trail mix kinda girl...cause you can get trail mix with M&Ms in it. Thumbsup

It's the chewy. Granola probably uses chewy as one of their many keywords.

Ah that explains it!

I've been 'boning up' on refutations of young-earth conspiracy shit about carbon dating and also looking deeper into the Democrats' manipulation of the media regarding the "RUSSIANS!!!!" hoax.

But no, I would not like to date Russian girls in my area.

So I guess the algorithms ignore your log in data.

No point pretending anymore that I'm a twenty-year-old, gay, Maori, trainee security officer.

Everywhere you go online is recorded and attached to your "profile". Everything you search, everything you buy, everything you read or watch, big daddy in the sky knows and sells it to anyone who wants it.

Companies spend tons of time and money fine tuning keywords to use as criteria, as well as buying your information. Even little shops can do it on youtube and Facebook and be quite successful.
