Why Not A Robot Ewe ?
« Reply #25 on: 20/03/2009 13:26:08 »
Has anyone else noticed there's an advert for robot kits at the bottom of this page? How'd they do that, then?

Do they have a list of potential advertisers just waiting for certain keywords to be used in the title? Or is it just a coincidence?

I bet when I've posted this reply the advert will change. Just to make me look like a robo-pratt.

I was going to delete my last two posts because they made me look stupid. Now you've quoted them I can't.

Double bugger!

And now you can't delete your last reply because I've quoted you quoting me! What am I going to do now to save face?

I'll just have to bomb the Naked Science offices and blow up the server. Anyone know where Chris lives?

It is the Google bots sniffing your posts. They select an advert that contains similar content to the post.

Oooooh, that's darned clever. I was beginning to doubt my own sanity for a moment. I'm going to keep refreshing the page and if it comes up again I'm going I'll copy and paste it's image in this thread. Just to bring the topic back round to robots again!

Wahaay. You've saved the day yet again. I refreshed the page about 25 times and it eluded me (although I could hear it mocking me from within the ether of web).

Aha Google Advert. Who's laughing now?  a?  a?
