innapropriate Ads by Google ad

2 posts in this topic

I haven't logged in for many a year, but did today so I could retrieve my lost password. While editing My Settings, a random Ads by Google popped up that I for one would appreciate not having to look at.

Administrators can delete this post if they want after they've gleaned through their Google sponsor ads. Added the picture so they know which one I'm referring to.

Thanks, Lisa

Looks like the ad is gone. Thanks! After doing some searching, looks like could have clicked on the the link, Ads by Google, to have it reported that way.

I think, how that works, is google will have already cached a page to know what words are on it, then it will display what it thinks is "appropriately related content" for the page you are on. I can see how Google can "get it wrong" quite easily!
