For Internet search engines, we are ordinary users – a desirable target. The more information is collected about us, the easier it will be to earn with its help. By analyzing our searches, the pages we open, we can compose a certain portrait of the user. The search engines themselves, the same Google, claim that it is even useful for people.

After understanding their interests, advertising of just those goods and products that are in the field of attention will be offered. Thus, the generated offers will look as useful and unobtrusive as possible. But sometimes Google offers us very strange things, it is not clear why. In fact, this is the result of the company’s smart algorithms processing your work based on search history and other data. You can understand how the search engine sees you with just a couple of clicks.
To get the information you need, simply follow this link to the Google Ads Personalization page. In this case, it is not at all necessary to use the Google Chrome browser, it will be easier to log in to the service with its help. In another browser, you will have to enter your Google credentials, if you have not previously logged into your service account there. On the page that opens, you will see a list of those very interests of yours that Google considers significant to you.
Perhaps some of the points will surprise you. But the search engine gives you the opportunity to remove unnecessary options so that you do not receive ads related to them. It’s easy to do – you need to click on the unnecessary item and click “Disable”…
This will remove advertisements for those products that you are no longer interested in, or even never interested in, getting into the list by mistake.
If you want to completely disable ad personalization, then set the corresponding radio button at the top of the page to the position Turned off… This will remove the entire list of advertising preferences. However, you will still be shown advertisements, but they will be less useful to you.
