Smile ads

It seems that when I sign in on this web page I see ads that pop up that spark my interest.For example I have been lookibg on the internet at new boats and now I see ads for new boats.When I signed in this time I seen an ad for Cabelas which is a sporting goods store which I visit often.Do your ads just pop up ramdomly or do they show up by your activaty on the internet?Sorry if this posting is a mess could not find my reading glassess

Those ads you're talking about our ads generated by Google. And like Google, are generated by words and topics you post, as well as your ISP address. That's why they may not only be cruise related.

They are different than the banner ads CruiseMates sell and post, like those for some of the cruise lines.

Google ads to generate revenue to the site when they are clicked on.

Cruisemates does an excellent job and they need to make some money to keep this gig going.

There is a message board on the internet that charges people $25 for a lifetime membership to post all they desire.

If u use google as your search engine or your home page; google knows more about you than your parents. I use google because its fast; basic, straight to the point. I don't mind the ads here or anywhere; I have been using the internet for over 20 years; I just ignore ads completely.
