I know that, because, I know, that I contacted them for specific information. Every ad that appears, is a familiar company to me, simply because I know/remember looking up that specific website.
Some way or another the crawler knows where I went, and thus places ads from those companies on the side of whatever I am looking at.

Personally, I think those *engines* that can do that, are very smart *engines*.
One day, I was looking for some aluminium tubing, but could not find anything I needed at whatever website I was looking at.
Then in the next few days, ads from other metal suppliers appeared, and I did find what I needed from another source I was not aware of.
So, now, once and a while, similar ads from metal suppliers appear, but I do not pay any attention to them.


And they are ... ???
I said, I had no idea on how to get rid of them.
Telling me that there are several ways to accomplish that but not telling me how, does not help at all ...
Care to elaborate ???
FYI, I use Win 7 and Mozilla Firefox.
TIA
Have you tried PC recovery?

Uhmmm ...
What would that do for me ?
It is not that nothing works, but whenever I look for things, *adsense* places these small ads, everywhere at random around stuff I read,
Those ads, are all from websites I have visited before.

I just need to know how to *opt out* of them, but I have no idea how.
I think, it is just part of the browser I use.
I do not see anything (some kind of command) that will block them ...

It would start your system over from scratch & make the ads go away.

Ya Google AdSense is all about generating revenues by putting advertisements on your website. You can post 3 ad units on one page. AdSense is really very easy to put. Just login to adsense program and they will give you the code. Put the code on your page and you are done. You can track your progress with google adsense.
