    Advertising Iowa Gear on Cyclonefanatic?

    I gotta admit Jeremy - I was a little turned off today when I logged in and saw a big advertisement for Iowa Football Fanatic gear at the top of the page......I understand you need advertising revenue, but this is cyclonefanatic.com, isn't it? I doubt it was just a coincidence that Iowa gear popped up as an advertisement instead of any other college team out there, but maybe it was......just wanted to share my feedback.

    Re: Advertising Iowa Gear on Cyclonefanatic?

    google ads pickup on key words in posts, if you want Hawk ads off CF, then stop posting about them or reading threads about them.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I thought it's also based on your personal browsing history, whether on CF or outside. All the ads I seem to get are pizza place ads!

    I see the same ad, but with ISU merch instead. Probably has to do with your search history like someone said above.

    Okay, that's actually good to hear - I was hoping that Jeremy didn't give his rubber stamp of approval specifically for Iowa ads.

    I wish it were as simple as me not reading or posting in Iowa ads (b/c I rarely do unless it directly relates to an upcoming/previous game), b/c it would be easy to fix.......unfortunately, I can't control the rest of the cylconefanatics.....maybe HUCAC can though?

    That explains all the advertisements for the SI Swimsuit calendar that keep clogging my CF . . .

    I show cyclone gear now and usually see cyclone gear; however, it was hockeye (now I know I need to disguise that word :) gear when I logged on and I was caught off-guard. I never go to any of the Hock sites and rarely post about them, but I'm guessing it had something to do with a post or two I made about the game last Saturday....who know's?
