Check this out.. Kinda odd!
I'm sitting at work looking at the daily yahoo.com news.. and I'm reading an article about one of those stupid "flash mob" things at a mall having to be evacuated.. and I look down and there is a HeliProz ad.. On yahoo.. They must be moving up in the world!

A good example of targeted marketing working...they have tagged you somehow and tailoring those ads to you.

Yahoo and Google, more the latter. Their ad engine is the most powerful.

If you run an adaware scan you'll probably find some data miners on your PC. Half the time when you download anything these days they tag along with the download.

Its called Pay-per-click advertising. Actually to advertise with Google/Yahoo is MUCH MUCH cheaper than advertising on ANY of the RC Heli websites.

I ordered a gift a few months back from a jewelry company & after that I started seeing ads for the same jewelery company on several websites I visit. I thought I had just ordered from a popular company but then it became obvious that I had been "targeted". I use Trend Micro for computer security but apparently it didn't catch that. It was definitely wierd at first when I started seeing the ads until I figured out what was going on.
