So, Google is using its analytics service to display interest based ads based on sites people visit
Could be, maybe. But can you go back and check to see if there is any DoubleClick code on that first site you visited.
In the past couple of days I've noticed "DoubleClick Spotlight Tag" code on merchant and corporate sites and then -- of course -- ads for these same companies following me around. And as far as I could see, Analytics wasn't used on these sites.
