Racy Ads

I've been noticing one of the squares that ads appear in is sporting some racy stuff.. Trans dating, bondage etc.. See screenshot below. I'm guessing they aren't wanted by wranglerforum..

Out of interest,the url for the image in the screenshot is http s://s2.adform.net/Banners/25014907/25014907.jpg?bv=2

(I broke the above link by adding a space in https so the url shows and not the image).
.
All the ads aren't sexual.. Most of them are regular. It;s just the odd one that pops up.

Wow, almost makes me wish I wasn't an ad-free premium member. I never see ads like that on here.

I may be wrong, but a lot of ads I see on different websites show ads from places like amazon, extreme terrain, musicians friend, etc...the cookies record where you have been browsing recently. What ads did you say you were getting LOL? Who else is using your computer? Luckily porn is not showing up on mine! hehe

Individualized Ads are all chosen by bots, and they make wild stabs at guessing correctly.

There could be something in your history that's making them shuffle those in, doesn't necessarily have to be visiting the more "adult" sites. Clearing cookies should reset you to getting the more default ads.

Still, I'll see if we can tighten things up here a bit more to make sure only family friendly ads get into the rotation.

Stop visiting porn sites?

It's called Behavioral Advertising/Marketing or Retargeting. More Info Here

It uses cookies, if you visit a site, get the cookie, they can put ads on other sites so you still see their stuff.

Example: you Google search for Jeep parts, click an Amazon link for one, decide not to buy, go do some online banking, then come to these forums...I bet you'll see an ad for Jeep parts, or whatever you were looking at prior to this site.

My company uses these methods and they work, very well. Too well, as you can see.

It may not be you looking at that stuff, but someone on your computer is.

You may have a malicious adware script running on your computer.

I'm not the OP. I don't have this problem. I clear my history every 3 minutes.
