I'm not sure how to break this to you guys but Google targets those ads based on your history. In other words - if you have been looking for her then you are going to get an ad from her.

(I got an ad for a trailer hitch.)

The ads surprised me too, but not as much as seeing a picture of my own boat in one of the Cabela's spots.

Wow - really? Get a screen shot of that next time. I'm thinking their media company might owe you an explanation


Here's another discussion about the ads http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/s...ents-6427.html

Slowboat-Cabela's may owe you more than just an explanation. If the boat is readily identifiable, i.e. name showing or similar, they should have a release from you to use the image. MAybe get some free fishing gear in exchange?

Checking on the picture of my boat this morning I see the ad is now from Toyota and is on the far left of the box. The larger part is filled with an invitation to join Trawler Forum and the reasons you should do so. Then on the far right is my boat hanging on a buoy. Now, all this doesn't show until I log out, it's not there when I log in. I don't shop at Cabela's nor do I own a Toyota so maybe it's the T.F. that owes me the explanation. I'm not upset but I am curious.

She's now 2.8 miles from me in North Charleston, SC. And she wants to be my friend. I wonder if she knows how old I am? I wonder if she wants to be my wife's friend also?

I'm pretty sure that she doesn't care so long as the $20's spend.
