I'm happy to have adverts if it helps pay for this great site.
I'm just wondering how they work. Last week I was thinking of buying a new camera and looked at the Nikon B700
This morning an advert for said camera pops into a post I'm reading.

So my question; "How does the V Flyer site pick up on what I've been looking at?"

This is by no means unique to V-Flyer - just about every website that uses cookies does it, just look at the ads at the side of your facebook feed. You can't use the internet, allow cookies, and then worry about who is watching what you browse. ;-)

Thanks.
I'm not worried, just wondered how it happens.

The ads look at your browsing history and then targets you with 'more relevant' ads.

There are several companies doing it, Google AdSense is one of them.
