I think the Chinese ads are tire ads.

I occasionally see these in the banner ad as well. They are usually placed by google or another ad service and they have "mistargeted" .. sort like advertising a prime rib buffet special in the Vegan Times magazine

Thanks Janet. That's what I was figuring, someone was mis-targeting, but was curious as to who it might be. Kind of amazing to see these as so much of the stuff, especially it seems by Google and Amazon, is targeted so specifically and so well towards the individuals tracked interests.

I guess I will now go have a bottle of Tsingtao to relish the resolution of my mystery. LOL

Google uses its Internet search technology to serve advertisements based on website content, the user's geographical location, and other factors.

Who knows what the "other factors" are? Trade secret it seems.

Behavioral and contextual advertising is based on where you have visited. In other words, tracking cookies.

[Quote:]
"Behavioral targeting technologies work by anonymously monitoring and tracking the content read and sites visted by a designated unique user or IP as that user surfs the Internet. This is done by serving tracking codes, which are implemented as cookies, on a user’s computer as s/he is served ads from various online advertising networks. Sites visited, content viewed, and length of visit are then all databased and analyzed to predict an online behavioral pattern for such a user, thereby classifying that user by his/her online demographic. Behavioral ad networks then serve targeted advertising related to that user’s behavioral classification, regardless of where s/he then visit.
[Unquote]

check this link for full info: Behavioral Targeting and Contextual Advertising | Search Engine Journal

Search engines work in this way. Let's say for example you visit eBay or Amazon looking for a particular item. You get directed to a foreign web site, see all the hieroglyphic type that is foreign to you, maybe click on another link hoping to get something in English, and eventually exit the page. A tracking cookie could be on your computer and targeted advertising is going to follow.

Clean out your cache, cookies, history, and other stored items that are not needed on a regular basis. Just remember that "saved passwords" will most likely disappear when you remove your cookies.

Search on the words:

-----how are computer ads targeted

to find more information on the subject.

Happy trails.

I had been wondering as well...this is the only place they show up for me, so it must just be related to this forum.

One thing I noticed is the advertisements all have links so that you click on a ad and it takes you someplace else to try and sell you on whatever they are selling. Not so with the Chinese characters. I can't fine any links embedded in them.

It doesn't matter if I am signed on or not. They still appear on the top and on the right side of the forum page. So far I haven't noticed these on any other forum site I visit. I'll have to pay more attention to the other sites and see.

That's my experience also-they only show up on this site.

I just noticed this ad so I copied it and pasted it here.

Then I copied the Chinese characters and found out the darn thing was pages and pages long (17 pages in fact! ). Took forever to get to the bottom. Google translator just shows random words as far as I can see.

Rumor in the black helicopter crowd, Ads are run by the NSA. Clicking on the ads puts you in monitoring for foreign interests program.

(maybe not that funny after all)

The ones I see are only in the top banner (I have the side banner adverts switched off).

Most of the time I use the android app on my tablets on this site. It is convenient and there are NO ads to distract me.

The ad in Chinese is a bit strange. It does seem.out of place on this site. I suspect the ad does not actually originate on this site and is likely a result of some other factor such as cookies as previously suggested in a previous post by Wayne M.

Did anyone delete cookies to see if they dissapear?

I tried deleting cookies, internet cache etc-it made no difference.
