No General Mills ad here!  I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch though!

I like that honey graham cereal the best =]. And the puffy kind with the ugly frog. But i never like sugary cereal…i really really secretly prefer grape nuts =]

I’m getting a Capital One Direct Banking ad. The ad server most likely drops a cookie and delivers an ad based on where you’ve been online. Ah, the wonders of technology.

I heart sugar cereal.

I only ever have the ads for Project wedding which I never used.

Yes the ads are different based on many factors.  Cookies is a big reason, so where have you been looking online lately?  Sometimes it is completely random, but if you pay attention to the ads then you will see how well the marketers really know you.  eta – There’s also other ways of targeting…maybe from their research they know Weddingbee users have a higher propensity to buy Trix (probably not likely).  Could be regional too, but since it is General Mills, I would say that is not likely.

Well I have been looking for cars and car insurance lately…almost every ad is for cars or insurance.  But I did just look up smoothie ideas an hour ago, and right now I have a Jamba Juice ad at the top…not a coincidence.

I work in adversting.  🙂

It is possible it’s completely random!  But seems odd since you said it reappears over and over.  They could have just bought out a ton of impressions on weddingbee to try to throw you off track of any wedding diet!  😉
