Strange ads at RHS of screen

Anyone have any idea why 'Beautiful Asian Girls' are been promoted on an Alfa website when certain topics are opened? this is one example.

https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...998-156-a.html

Open this link & 3 quite pretty Asian girls appear to the RHS of the screen. .... probabbly my laptop

According to Adsense it's based on your browsing history, more info here https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/way-o...yeah-sure.html



No adverts for me anyway

Only on the Home Page I presume ? It's mosty Sky ads I see there, I don't see any ads anywhere on AO apart from there.
I have the column of the RHS minimised, just click on the Red arrow ( paying members only option )


Premio = Paying Member, which you already are

Lacken, I've seen them on RHS of my screen too on this page:

Alfa Romeo Forum - Alfa Romeo Club for dedicated owners

Not my bag either and I doubt very much if it's to do with browsing history and can post my browsing history if required!

Hi David.. thanks for that..... I saw you had white stars I only have grey ones... I thought that was some super-premio-squared version of membership... Or is it bases on number of posts.....

In work I did see ads for Asian girlfriends on my lab PC when I was on AO.. that pc is locked with my user account (work)... I'm pretty certain there is no porn searches done on that PC!!! I'm inclined to agree with Roars.... Unless one of the lads went mad on my pc when i left before the screensaver kicked in..........yuck! New mouse for me on Monday!!!

The number & colour of Cloverleafs are related to postcount alright.

IIRC the ads are aren't only ( if at all ) related to history but demographics etc.
