Enough with the UK ads
 
This is Canada, eh. The stupid Google ad at the bottom of the page always seems to be for the UK.

Google Ads are Geo-targetted.

I get Canadian pricing and websites - Does your IP address get filtered through any proxies or bounced around or something?

Are you able to try visiting the website on a different computer, maybe one with a different ISP?


May be some steps to narrow it down and see if we can get the issue fixed. Anyone else from the Maritimes experiencing a similar issue.

Google Ads? Huh? Haven't seen those in a while. ...

:whistle:

I'm more concerned that swoopo is making it through the google filters yet again (same shit different name). It may not be a full fledged scam, but it's close enough to not want it associated with the site.

edit: I felt I should qualify my "not a full fledged scam" comment.... at best it's an on-line gambling scheme.

Google ads are dodgey at best, they must pay well or something...

I'll give sites their advertising dollars, if they're relevant.
