I’ve been running Google Adsense for a while, and I ocassionally get an ad for LEGO or for a video game console. That’s not surprising, because I like those things and I may have mentioned them.
Today I saw an ad for John McCain on the site. Perhaps there’s one now.
I’m not sure how it happened (there are a couple of things tagged as ‘politics’) on here, but there’s also a porn review site, et cetera. I can’t quite figure it out, but since McCain is lagging behind hugely in campaign contributions (due to his excellent record of capping contributions and of BLASTING traditional fundraising ethics) perhaps his team is spending more online than they might with a fatter warchest. And as a result, he’s targetting a wider spread of sites.
I know, you’re not supposed to talk about ads. It breaks the illusion of their contextual display. WTF. I’m voting for Bloomberg.
Well, everyone please click on the ads, no matter what they are. Each click earns me a few cents.
