Food For Thought: Is content still king or does Google Chrome rule when it comes to content targeted Ads?
Today I was browsing the web using Google Chrome for a dog grooming service. After doing my research at various grooming sites I opened another tab in Chrome to browse the recently added designers portfolios on Styleapple. We currently have one ad space for Google Ads, which 99.9% of the time shows Ads relevant to the content on our pages. i.e. design schools, freelance design jobs, web design firms, etc. However today it showed an Ad for a dog show. A DOG SHOW? Hmm.
I browsed the current content on Styleapple to see if any of the recently added designers were doing doggie portraits or developing websites for dogs to no avail. Then I thought: Does Google believe that your previous searches are more important than the content on the current web page?
What do you think: Is Google Chrome smarter than a 5th grader ?
