A few weeks ago, someone put up a post with a video; I was curious, so I clicked the video since I have special permission at work to go to YouTube for training videos. The video was a young woman playing a Tele. Nice video, nothing inappropriate, no big deal. However! Since that point, the ads that load on the TDPRI have been from places like Los Angeles Apparel - 20-somethings in skimpy outfits. Not stuff I need to see, least of all on my work machine where everything that loads is tracked. These models are my daughter's age, and I would not be happy if she dressed like that, which she does not. We cannot put an ad blocker on our work machines. Sigh. So, I dumped my cache. No change. I spent some time surfing The Tire Rack and Sweetwater. No change. Grrr. So I decided to start clicking the "Ad Choice" button and rating ads. I kept marking these as "Ad was not appropriate"; when that choice was not offered, I would mark "Seen this ad multiple times". It started to work. After a few days, I was still getting skimpy clothing ads - and often, the same ad four times on the page. Keep rating, keep marking. Vigilance. I am happy to say now that my ads are either no longer clothes related, or only one here and there. Lots of them are just blocked or don't show because the work proxy does not allow them through. Nice. (I did have to rate a clothing ad when I was posting this.) This process has spanned about 10 days or so, but it is finally paying off. It slays me that all these Google ads started from just watching one video. Who knew they would turn on the fire hose.
