Ads don't go away when logged in?

Maybe I'm just slow in noticing something that happened long ago, but...

In the past, you only saw the GoogleAd at the top of the page if you weren't logged in. Now, it's still there even after logging in. Granted... it's a little smaller - but it's there offering me nitrate filters, cures to herpes, authentic electric heaters made by authentic Amish craftsmen, and anything else not even closely related to aquariums. But I digress.

Is this a new thing? Or has some setting been accidentally changed? If this is a new revenue-generating thing, then perhaps someone should change the graphic that tells unregistered folks to register so they can "get rid of these ads."

You need a good popup blocker. I don't see any other than 2 wedged between vendor spotlight and online buddies..

BTW: I think google ads serves up ad rotations based on tracking cookies on your computer.. Now what was that list again? Still fighting that thing eh....

Yeah... I run a pop-up blocker also. But it's not a popup... it's on the actual page. It's exactly what mfdrookie is showing in his screenshot - but mine is not quite as tall.

I know generally how GoogleAdwords works and you're right - part of the equation is your browsing history. But the funny thing is that I'll see those ads the first time I fire up the ol' browser and hit AA first thing as I make my rounds on the 'net. Cookies/temp files/cache are all cleared when the browser shuts down, so my slate is clean. And yeah... the "belly" ad is getting old too! Man... that thing is on ALL websites these days!

{Edit: Hey Ahab... if you're not seeing what mfdrookie is showing, I *bet* it's because of your "mentor" tag. I'll bet you're in a different user group that has been graced with the lack of ads. I bet mentors, mods, and admins all don't see what the rest of us common folk are seeing. Just a hunch.)

what kind of pop up blocker are you using captain? i just dont see how it would make a difference since its part of the page itself, not to mention i see it whether pop up blocker is on or off. i even see it on my iphone and blackberry

He probably needs the Blackberry so he can have a phone. (Sorry... couldn't resist!)

Ahab - are you blocking javascript? Or does your adblocker disable javascript? The ad itself isn't a popup - but if you're blocking javascript, then I can see where maybe it's not showing up for you.

{Edit: Aha! I just disabled javascript on my browser and voila... ads go away. But the original question stands as to whether or not this is intended - because I've always had javascript enabled on my browsers, but in the past when I was logged in I didn't see the ads.}
