The Pile: Thoughts, Life, and Photography of Joshua Davis

Yahoo! Targeted Ads

I was recently at a website looking at an article on why/why not people should buy an DSLR. The whole article was about photography. Not a single word about abortion (OK the word shoot was used a few times), nothing about sex (well maybe the word sucks, but hey no one gets pregnant from that), and well it just made me wonder if Yahoo! will get it’s act together about targeted ads.

What was the advert about? Abortions in Manhattan. Google can tell the difference between Java coffee, Java (programming language used for online games, and more), and the island of Java. And if Yahoo! can’t tell the difference between an article about buying an SLR, and family planning, then they shouldn’t wonder why no on uses their service.

The page was here BTW.
