PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
This just seems a little strange to me to see a M*ch*g*n advertisement on THE premiere Ohio State site
Dont view TTUN websites then. Those ads reflect where else you've been Internetting (i.e. you're being tracked). I have Vegas casino ads on mine, mostly because I'm planning my next trip and have bee clicking on their hotel websites.

That's not always the case. It's not just specific to sites you visit. I get ads for Cleveland casino and I don't gamble online or look for sites online that are for casinos or other forms of gambling. I also saw the same UM ad earlier today and don't visit any UM sites. Whatever Google uses in determining their advertisement, part of it is for sites that you visit as I have seen Celtic FC stuff come up as I do look for their gear every now and again, but there are other factors that will bring up other ads as well. What they are, I don't know, it may just be random ads when no recent browsing history is readily available, but I can attest to not visiting sites for a drug and alcohol treatment and detox facility ever but I am currently staring at that ad.
Edit: Or Zulily...whatever that may be.
Then why aren't there more Brazzers ads?
That made me laugh...just like the Brazzer's gif on the favorite gif's thread.
Thanks for the laugh ATB. lol
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
I keep getting steakhouse ads... Talk about a let down when it comes to lunch time.
Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
The website doesn't determine what ads are shown. Usually they are based off the sites you visit recently. I've been car shopping, so I see ads for a KIA dealer.
If that were the case I would have manga, and Laker ads on mine. Instead i'm getting some Thailand dating site.
I call shenanigans no porn ads on mine.
It's exactly like the others described it. I have myrtle beach and a dodge dealer.

We need to outlaw the use of the word M*CH*G*N on the site.
If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. ~ Bruce Lee
If you use the word then it's an automatic 10 downvotes.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
That's 10 downvotes to hail for saying it.
I brought this up a while ago....nothing 11W's can really do about it. Google associates tOSU with scUM because of the rivalry.
"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."
Targeted ads. I've got Green Giant vegetable ads in the same spot as we speak. Wait, when did I look at that?
Class of 2010.
I certainly hope this is not targeted advertizing. Right now I have an ad from the Safe-Step Walk-In Tub company.

You all should:
A) Use Google Chrome.
B) Download this free adblocker extension from Chrome.
It blocks ALL Google ads on every website. Really magical and takes exactly 30 seconds to download and install.
Aren't you then in fact, keeping 11w's from making any money at all from the ads? (Page views and all)
How am I keeping 11W from making any money at all from ads? LOL
Yes, let's keep 11W from making money. Not cool, at least disable this site. The ads are non-instrusive.
You are kind of hasty, aren't you?
If you're using adblocker they aren't receiving any revenue from Google's adsense which is based on ad views and ad clicks. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
How regularly do you click on the links, Factor11? Better yet, why are you busting my chops when all I want to do is help everyone? I'm sure you LOVE getting ads on every page you go to, and I'm sure you go around clicking all the banners, right?
Ok, how about this... you can install the adblocker, and then turn it off every time you go to 11W.
Does that make you happy?
Honestly, that's a decent compromise. If you feel the need to install an ad blocker, if you could disable it for this site, that would rule.
The ads are important to our revenue. Without them, we wouldn't be able to do what we do. It's that simple.
In the spirit of compromise, I just disabled it for 11W :)
(furiously clicking ads then immediately closing the pages in order to help 11W stay free and awesome)
Sorry Pierogy, I didn't mean to come off as rude or anything, I just wanted to let you know
Great idea! I just downloaded it and easily figured out how to disable it for this site (see the red stop sign to the right of the location bar). If I can do this, anyone can.
I don't know but I get dating sites, and I don't peruse them at all.
All week long, Meyer preached to his team that he wouldn't pity Buffalo (4--8 in 2012). "I didn't schedule this game," he insisted. "I'm not going to feel bad for them."
For some reason I keep getting ads for feminine products and Preparation H.
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
I'm getting ads for Febreeze and Grand Canyon College of Nursing.
Grand Canyon College of Nursing seems legit
I'm having a strong urge to buy a used 2008 Jeep Wrangler. Only $26,888.
