Targeted Ads

Read the comments to this article  (thanks to wyrmwwd for the link) and it seems the Google bots regularly guess people are older than they are. For the record they think I'm 65+.

I suppose my recent activity (related to the weekend break) is what has them convinced I have a particular interest in Yorkshire. 

Why do they think I'm sold on "royalty"? Do I really spend so much of my time digging the dirt on Prince Charles? 

I'm glad they're a little off centre. We all like to think we can fool the system. 

Do I ever click on the targeted ads they place in my way? No. I have strict rules about that sort of thing. 

Am I being influenced subliminally? I don't think so, but...
