It started as a little annoyance, and now it is just full blown hatred. I am talking about the ads they run at the top of my blog or underneath my latest post. It is not so much the fact that they run the ads, I don’t mind that because WordPress allows me a free blog as a result.
No, my beef is with the content of the ads. It is obvious that when I go online shopping or window shopping that they are tracking me and next time I visit my blog those online stores appear on my blog, usually advertising the items I have either purchased online or clicked on for a closer view and rejected.
Why invade my privacy this way? And why the hell would you waste time showing me items I have already purchased? Damn stupid strategy. I am not going to blog about the ads on my blog, because you are obviously seeing something related to your online habits. It hardly seems like a smart strategy to me.
Surely it would be smarted to show me something new and entice me to spend more money I don’t have?
Can online advertising go on a stick list?
