Different Ads for Different Computers

The plot thickens...

So I go to our hardtack page to look into the problem mentioned in my last post [webmasterworld.com], and on [b]MY[b] computer, I get ads for gluten-free bread, MREs, US Calvary, and Civil War history. I have a second computer on my desk and get the same results on that one.

On my husband's computer, he has ads for fire and EMS shirts, EMT education, Bangor real estate, and Bangor hotels. He has a second computer on his desk, and gets the same results on both of them.

The difference can't be geograpical, since he's no more than 5 feet from me.

Clues?

Did reloading the pages make a difference?

Or did you view other Civil war pages previously to loading that one, while your husband went to that page after viewing the EMS pages? Perhaps the ads "followed" each of you as you went to that specific page you are referring to. That might also contribute how it decides what ads to display.

Not a bit.

He's never been to any EMS-related sites on his second computer, so it isn't following him on that one.

In my experience, reloading the page on the same computer will give you the same ads. That doesn't mean everyone else viewing that page will get the same ads as you did. Are the two computers that are getting the same ads sharing an IP address? As long as what you are seeing on each computer is targeted, it's working correctly.
