23 Badly Placed Internet Ads

Most times banner ads are clever enough to display ads relevant to the page you’re reading right now – like if you scroll to the bottom of this post and look for the Google AdSense banner, it will most likely advertise for something related to this post (I wonder what that might be).

But at other times, the banner networks really screw up!! Buzzfeed.com collected 23 Badly Placed Internet Ads that probably never should have been showed…

Like this one – an article with the title “Coffee Might Trigger First Heart Attack in Some” – and next to it, there’s an ad for…. coffee!


Or this clever Google AdWords placement when searching for “world of warcraft”, showing up an ad saying “Are Your a Male Virgin?”  – I don’t think this is a mistake though… but it’s still funny and maybe a bit out of place?


Before you head over to see the rest of those misplaced banner ads, please make sure you subscribe to my blog first – some day I might thank you for it 🙂

Those are great, and yep, I think Google knew exactly what it was doing with ad near the World of Warcraft. :> I might search for some heavy duty Linux things and see if I get the same sort of ads…

Ha! The google adsense one is pretty funny. I wonder if people who searached for world of warcraft actually clicked on that one.

Haha if nothing else that World of Warcraft ad placement is hysterical and might even be true in some cases. haha

I’m amazed at some of the choices of ad placements. it makes you wonder what word or phrase they are picking up on. Still, I reckon some of the ads they’ve place on my blogs have had me scratching my head on more than one occasion.
