Hey all - if you have any sort of Google login, you can see what they have pre-set for you regarding your ad viewing preferences.

Google Ads Preferences

They guess categories your interested in, and also your age/sex. Google thinks I'm 5 to 15 years older than I am! Glad it noticed I like Mercedes Benz though :D

Anything odd in yours?

Mine:

Autos & Vehicles
Autos & Vehicles - Vehicle Brands - Mercedes-Benz
Autos & Vehicles - Vehicle Shopping
Computers & Electronics - Consumer Electronics
Finance - Accounting & Auditing
Internet & Telecom - Mobile & Wireless
Law & Government
Sports - Extreme Sports

Not sure where it got auditing and accounting from!

I don't mind ad's in general (So long as they aren't in the way of viewing the website's content) - the ones I visit give me lots of information for free, they need to pay the bills somehow. (This one included).

So this way, I'd rather have something that's relevant to me instead of useless.

Incidentally... I am assuming they are analysing the info from their Google cookies in the browser cache on your PC, rather than actually storing information about your browsing on any Google servers.

It's a cookie, when you have one set it gives you the info in it (Which is just numbers and ID's anyway)

TBH, I don't mind Google snooping around my buying habits, but I don't like cookies in general because we had many issues with adware and other junk that comes in as cookies (not from Google).

Do you share your computer with anyone? They might not be able to guess if your viewing mixed sex/age content

I said mine was blank, I may as well confess - mine mentioned midgets, zoophilia, bestiality and adult material and said I was 92! Oh, and balloons
