Google ads, mercenaries and blogs about Brussels


I was pretty shocked when I found this ad on my Spanish blog about Brussels. Somehow, Google Adsense has decided that the most relevant ad to include in a blog written in Spanish about Brussels and in an article about Dutch learning schools is: a mercenary school! … and in English…

Google Ads may not be an excellent source of revenue, but it does pay in laughs.

  1. This is somehow not so surprising. The ads you get may depend on your IP and not only on the content of the website. For example, I get ads of US local businesses all the time when I’m browsing El Pais. Maybe you were visiting blogbruselas in a mercenary-friendly area.

  2. I hope it does not have to do with the results of the elections!
