Lets Get MGoPersonal: What ads are popping up for you on the front page?

Submitted by profitgoblue on December 14th, 2012 at 4:12 PM

Since its a slow Friday afternoon and the strangest ad just popped up on my front page, I was curious as to what you all are seeing on your front pages courtesy of the Google ad engine.  Cut and paste what you're seeing to the left of this thread.  I think it might lead to some interesting conversations.  Here's what I just saw on mine:

(I have absolutely no idea how this ad relates to any Google searches I've done recently but I clicked on in anyway in hopes that it helps the site somehow.  If anyone is looking to get a technical degree, this one sounds pretty cool.  Probably not really useful unless you live near a large body of water, but cool nonetheless.)

Now, it has been switched up to Great Wolf ads, because the kids want me to spend $279 per night on a room again apparently.

We need to get Air Asia to do sidebar ads that will appear on this site...

I have no idea why since I have never bought one. Not a big fan since I usually view from work and the pics are not that appropriate. Like girl in a tishirt and just underwear bottoms.

I'm calling Target about that one. I've seen that ad a million times now (and got confused with an EA Sports ad we ran earlier this year) and didn't register that it was them until now. I mean if we're all seeing it all the time it'd be way cheaper for them to buy direct.

A Mastercard priceless Paris campaign.  A Campanile Hotel/Restaurant Joyeaux Hiver campaign.  A Converse sneakers are nice, shoes are naughty (did I repeat that right cause it doesn't make sense to me?).  And the Mara Watch.

How do I cut paste an add?  Clicking on it doesn't seem to work.

How are you capturing the ad images?  When I right-click, shows as flash and can't copy.

1. Dunkin Donuts "Dunkin K-Cup Packs K-OuntDDown" (don't know why, I don't drink coffee or eat many donuts)

2. Westin Hotels and Resorts (makes sense - I travel a ton and am Hilton Gold, Marriott Silver, and SPG Gold; and United Platinum)

3. LinkedIn ads for Compensation Trends, and Diversity & Inclusion.  (makes sense, as I'm in this industry)


Upon posting, got ads for InterContinental Hotels Group and MasterCard Priceless Chicago - Bon Jovi concert.

Sur La Table for Nespresso machines, and Google Nexus 7 tablets.

Also, random Qatar Airways ads; booking a trip to Seychelles via Emirates & Dubai.  Like the idea of Dubai layover as opposed to a Doha one.

And a strange SBNation/Marines combo right now, I keep getting these Filipina love connection ads.

Which is weird because I haven't gotten a mail order bride in over a year.

Last week, I was getting ND memorablia ads.  Would have been pissed off except I knew that Brian et al had nothing to do with it.   When I was in Turkey in the fall, I got a bunch of Green Card ads.
