Web advertising

Postby Pego » Fri Jul 12, 2013 1:51 pm

This morning I searched the web for store brands split pea soups, including Amazon.com. Now I see the Amazon.com banner with a few cans of split pea soup on top of the T&FN message board. It just blows me down how that gets integrated and how fast.

That's because there is lots of money at stake !!!
Couple of people in my immediate family work for a corp that is a major player in placing banner ads for huge companies on privately owned websites.
Whenever anyone clicks through and buys something then everyone involved gets maybe a nickel. But there are literally millions upon millions of nickels at play.

Financial aspect I understand. How does that banner recognize my shopping behavior on a different website than its own?

Going on a tangent here, but are you talking about canned split pea soup? I'd be interested to know if you found a really good one.

We used to buy store brands (generic) such as Flavorite, Roundy's, IGA, Red Owl...that we liked better than the national Campbell brand. They all seem to be gone with the wind. I am talking about solid, paste-like consistency that you can use as a side-dish, not the soup per se.

Gotcha. I've heard that Healthy Choice and Progresso are good, but I don't know about the thickness.

I have no contributions re split pea soup, but I am impressed that the banner ads associated with your Web browsing have an actual recognizable connection with said browsing. My response to most of what I am shown via banner & border ads is, "Really? What in the world have I looked at that makes you think I am interested in that?"

The low sodium Frozen Tabatchnick Split Pea is actually pretty good.

I have some friends who still model and I wind up dragging a variety of odd, for me anyway, products services etc along with me when I look at their latest work. Of course they often are in ads that target the ear hair demographic and I am it :wink:
