Quote:
"Contextual targeting" is Google's practice of scanning its publishing partner's web pages for certain keywords or phrases and then using those words and phrases to find the right to ads to serve to visitors of those pages. A post on a group of cute puppies could turn up a Google ad for adopting puppies.

But sometimes this process goes horribly wrong.

Yikes!

Would have been really funny if the date on the screen shot had been this year, after Google made user-targeted ads the default for Adsense publishers.

Yeah, I wasn't really looking at specifics. I just thought they were humorous. ;)

It's funny, but it would have been even funnier if someone who has been studying to become a terrorist had inadvertently blown their cover not knowing Google selects ads based on the visitors past behavior using the DART cookie. :D

I'm looking up DART cookie right now.

Anything associated with Double Click annoys me.
