Google Ads are Sometimes Odd

Well.  As none of these topics have been directly written about on my blog, it’s interesting these particular ads have been selected for this site:


Do you think it was the Porsche post?


  1. FISHY VAGINAL ODOR? Geez…there’s “direct” and then there’s “DIRECT.”

  2. Anonymous says:

    Yikes, You would think that “Bad vaginal odor” would be descriptive enough. I am missing the connection to the Porsche though – is there a higher incidence of such problems among Porsche drivers?

  3. Hmmm, time to search PubMed for “yeast infection + Porsche.”

  4. The Porsche thing was a (lame) joke. Also, an attempt to get them to advertise here (hehe).

    Seriously, I figure it was “…and I want to get checked for chlamydia” in another post that did this.

    Hmm, it’s an ad for an herbal treatmant for gardnerella. Only 75 bucks a bottle! According to the ad they put in over 3000 hours of study to come up with this, they must have been really dedicated!

  6. Although I’ve toyed with the idea of doing so, one reason I’ve never signed up for Google Adsense is because you don’t have a lot of control over what ads get posted. For example, it would hardly do on my blog (where one of the major themes is skepticism over the claims of alternative medicine) to have ads for colon cleanses, “herbal breast cancer cures,” etc. showing up. Yet, I’ve seen such ads even on the Anti-Quackery Web Ring hub.

  7. Well, you have some (small) measure of control, you can block ads, but it’s all retroactive: the ads show up, you decide you don’t want them, and then you can block them.

    I personally have blocked several injury-trolling plaintiff lawyer sites, and it works.
