    Just noting that Google is SO missing the boat occasionally with its ad placement here at RealJock.

    One of the more amusing ones I've spotted is the "Meet Certified Christian Singles" one (and yes, I checked - no option for the 'mos). Kinda begs the question - what kind of inspection do they do? Hopefully better than what the GOP does in looking for closet cases in its ranks!

    The other was "Fittest Female Contest." Anyone else catch any good ones?

    As someone who spends far too much money on google ads, I turned off the "content network" adds long ago. The relevance of the site matches is usually extremely low, and the click-through-rate is usually around 0.01% or less. In these cases, google is basically selling someone else's real estate and they definitely care more about quantity than quality.

    I thought I resurrect this thread by saying, does anyone find it a little "in your face" an ad for the National Coalition For Marriage - Doug Hoffman For Congress playing on the RealJock site?

    Didn't want to create a new thread if someone commented on the Google Ads so I did a search for "Goodle Ads" and this thread popped up. icon_wink.gif

    All the ads I see are for Atlantis cruises and anabolic steroids. Right on target!
