...because you never know when you might need to top up your Liberian mobile phone.  Or perhaps Charles Taylor is hiding out on Geekzone?

A lot of AdSense is based on sites you have visited before... Just saying.

Some ads will be related to the content, but most will be related to sites you've visited.

For example I visited the Venetian web site to get their address in Las Vegas, to have a couple of Amazon parcels sent during my visit there last month - for a week after that I saw ads about Las Vegas accomodation, restaurants and flights...

Hehehe yup know how they work. I visit some fairly quirky websites so it's always hilarious to see how the ads interpret them.

The crazy cat lady related ads were to my visiting the Animates website and then a wig website!
