Can-Am ad on PT site

I just happened to observe a Can-Am advertisement when I attempted to check for new posts. Attached is a picture of what I saw. Can anybody advise why Can-Am would have an ad on Prowler Talk?

I can understand vendors advertising, but a competitor to Arctic Cat, sounds odd to me.

Adds are based on the cookies that are saved on your computer, more often then not. They they are selected per user based on the cookies saved on your computer that your viewing the page from.

Companies then pay for their advertisements. To be displayed on sites directed toward the same enviroment. In which you are on.

Also arctic cat being a smaller company prolly doesn't pay for advertisement like the big 4 and can am. So there for you don't see them pop up.

Also take social media sites when your logged on check out the advertisements. It's all based on things of your interest that you have viewed in the recent past.

It's scary knowing that your computer is telling another computer to show what adds that will gain your interest just t try and get you to spend money!!!!

Yep you got that right Clark and everyone has a digital trail everywhere they go on the internet and that tells us they have been checking out the competition Busted!

I've been looking at tires and the ads are showing up on my Facebook page now. You can try some of the safe browsing modes offered on different browser but it's not really going to matter much unless you delete your cookies and try to clear your search history online, Google saves everything and damn near everyone uses it.

Update: those cookies are what keeps you from having to login every time you visit this site so they're not all bad.

'07 Prowler 650 H1 XT, L.E.D. stop/turn signals, Summit Racing heater, AC winch, AC windshield, soft cab & doors, 6' Eagle Plow, oil gauge, Maxxis MT-762 truck tires, AC Fender Flares, E-Brake alarm, Yutrax UTV Jump Seat, Dynatek CDI
