I was reading a Techcrunch article today through Google RSS Reader when I noticed the following ads at the bottom of the post:
By the links it seems that the upper ad (Ironscale) is coming through Techcrunch direct sales efforts, while the bottom ad (Indochino) is coming through Google AdSense for RSS.
Now, the post I was reading talked about My Space problems. Can someone please explain to me what's the connection between this and Men's suits??
Is this the best AdSense algorithm could come up with?
This also highlites another big problem of using large and non targeted ad networks - the possibilty of hurting your brand. Don't get me worng. It could be that Indochino is a great company and their suits are amazing, but when I read Techcrunch I expect to see advertisers such as Dell and Intel. Seeing such an ad doesn't really reflect the brand I'm sure Techcrunch want to build.
