    UNI ad on CF

    Does it bother anyone else that there is a big UNI ad that keeps coming up at the top of the Cyclone Fanatic page?

    By the power of Grayskull!

    If you were a real fan you wouldn't be getting UNI ads, just saying.

    Re: UNI ad on CF

    I thought they had to pay for that?

    google ads pays for an ad to be displayed, but what shows up is based on browser history or for some ads, the topic that is being discussed. See: Vasectomy ads.

    I haven't searched/looked at any UNI related in the past couple of months until this thread. However, the UNI ad has been repeatedly there.

    To answer the original question, if I could see ads (seriously, AdBlock) I wouldn't be bothered by seeing UNI ads.

    well, it's getting it from somewhere. Possibly a topic that's being discussed on the site. I can promise you that UNI is not a paid sponsor of CF.

    Not as much as people complaining about the most trivial things.

    The countdown clock says UNI. I have never seen the ad, although I don't pay attention to the ads much, so I could have missed it.

    Add in the Jacobson to TAMU topic and this thread. That would be enough for a google ad targeting UNI.

    Re: UNI ad on CF

    I check the UNI football page every now and then since I'm from Cedar Falls, and I have a friend or two that is currently on the UNI football roster. I find that if I visit any websites that pertains to UNI (local newspaper/TV websites,) I also get UNI ads on here. Could be worse school ads popping up on CF.

    I can't wait for September 3rd.

    By creating this thread you have now made sure the UNI ad will stay up for you for some time now.

    I added AdBlock over the weekend, and now the only ad I see on here is an ad for West Cyde Wings.



    Which sound really good all of the sudden. I think wings are on the menu for supper tonight.
