    Good Evening,

    Out of curiousity, where do the ads on the boards originate? I was lurking a particular discussion, and noticed an ad for Staples Mill Road Baptist Church at the top of the screen [ http://www.smrbc.org/ ]. That is a church right here in Richmond, VA - and a great bunch of folks who love The Lord. That is great if they are also supporting the Baptistboard.

    Are these ads specifically targeted (because of my screen name)?

    Just curious,
    BiR (very pleasantly surprised by that)

    I would guess so, I have seen ads from WV that no one else seems to see.
    It may be tracking cookies from google also.

    The church may not be advertising on Baptistboard, but on Google..

    The ads are based on a threads content. The how of it is magic to me. This is one of the reasons why certain topics are not discussed in open (spiderable) forums. If they are, katy bar the door on the ads we'd see.
