PROOF POSITIVE: GOOGLE IS BIG BROTHER



Yesterday, online, I was browsing some commercial sites and visited J & P Cycles online store looking at leather motorcycle jackets and a replacement battery for my ride.   Later I flipped up a motorcycle jewelry marketer - not to buy, but just looking.

A few minutes ago I was checking my blog list and on one of the blog sites that allow advertising there was  a prominently displayed advertisement from J & P Cycles for leather motorcycle jackets and a J & P Cycles advertisements for motorcycle batteries; also at the end of the blog was an advertisement for motorcycle jewelry. 

Wow!   Talk about tracking - the NIS should be so good!

Big brother is truly watching you.

  1. Google is definitely a major tracker of everything to do with your internet life. I wonder what other info they get from my computer?

  2. It seems these days the question is not what does Google know about you, but what does Google 'not' know about you. Your blog is a good read.

    1. We all let it hang out on line - they not only know what we post (which is unbelievable personal info) but what we look at and where we travel on line.

  3. The government will never be as good at tracking us as private corporations like Google. Google wants to convince advertisers to spend more on advertising; nothing hones intelligence-gathering quite as much as the bottom line.

    Although I do occasionally wonder just what would happen if a person did some online searches for the best prices on bulk fertilizer, diesel fuel, and rental trucks.

  5. Anytime I look for anything on line, every site I visit has ads tailored to me in French! They know who you are, they know what you are looking for, so be very very careful about what you look for on line...

    1. I did not expect adds tailored to my searches appearing on someone else's blog that I was reading.

  7. They must recognize poverty. I never get ads of any kind. Or I do not see them. Either way, no complaints. On the other hand, will I get a Russian visa next time we want to go visit the family in Khakasia?
